My third first week at BYU? Here's some ABCs for you:

Atmosphere. Sure, there's a little bit of this, and a whole lot of this, but I love it anyways.
Boys. Boys. Boys. Boys. Boys. And Brady Toone. What is he, cloning himself?
Classroom. So What if I've been downsized from one building to one room? So what if it looks like this? Curtains make GREAT walls!
Drywall. Hallelujah!
Espanol. Is it a problem if every time Taylor suggests practicing, I get the Bay City Rollers stuck in my head? (Sabado Noche! Sabado Noche!)
Friends. Yeah for football even though we lose. Yeah for chill spots. And yeah for really nice compliments on a bit of silliness, really (thanks Annie).
Guys. Guys. Guys. Guys. Guys. Is that technically allowed? Heck yes it is!
Hilarity. Like that one time Hannah stole Taylor's jeans so when Taylor accidentally knocked over her garbage can she said, "Just be glad I'm only literally kicking your trash!"
Impatience. Like that one time I missed the green arrow and looked in the rear-view mirror to find the driver making neck-choking motions in the air. I assume in my direction....
Jabbar Gibson. Finally comes a story of hope.
Katrina. A rock dropped into the sea of humanity. Stepping stone or stumbling block?
Labor Day. Yes, I can indeed trim trees like this.
Musical Mondays. How can you make an inspiring Elvis movie? If you end it in 1969.
Naps. Here a nap, there a nap. Everywhere a nap-nap.
Olives. The only way to play.
Popsicles. Mmm. Mmm. Good.
Queues. It's a good thing I'm in an Engl-ish state of mind and find that word funny, otherwise the bookstore lines, the twilight zone lines, the banking lines and the traffic lines wouldn't be quite so amusing.
Reality Check. Isaiah 58:6-9.
Surreal. Playing tennis with Tyler Severe.
Tennis. In general. I pity the fool that messes with this!
Ultraviolet. More like ultra-beet-red. sheesh.
Veto. It's the way to go, Arnold.
Walrii. Class is in session. And Winston. Married.
Xanthochroi. Do gentlemen really prefer them?
Yellow. Bad for journalism. Good for writing.
Zebra Logic. No Meagan, just because you have no idea what la profesora is saying doesn't mean she's speaking Greek. Maybe you should have done your homework at the library instead of sleeping, then you would understand her. Oh wait, she is speaking Greek.

I love. I miss. Really bad. Once a week just isn't enough.

Adriane said...

and how did you do the word verification? AWESOME!!!

Jon said...

You're professor speaks Greek?? That's awesome!

Maybe SHE can tell me what Xanthochroi means and if I prefer them.

Jena said...

You mean Jon is NOT all knowing?! No really, it kind of shakes me up when you don't know things.

And you DO prefer them.

AnneGirl said...

It was all I could have hoped for and more! Meagan! I only love! :)

And I totally just learned that I'm a Xanthochroi! I knew there had to be a scientific-ish name for my condition!

Jon said...

Okay, so I just found out, and the answer is no on both counts.
1) No, gentlemen do not necessarily prefer them, and
2) No, I do not necessarily prefer them either. I did in high school, which I suspect is where Jena is getting her information, but after my mission, I find myself more of an equal-opportunity preferrer.

Jon said...

Ever heard the saying, "Men date blondes but marry brunettes?" It may not be entirely true, but it had to come from somewhere!

AnneGirl said...

Racist.

Meagan said...

You mean folliculitist.

Adriane said...

Oh. I miss. Meagan, I wish I was half as witty as you are! And I wish I knew whether I was a Xanthochroi or not. It depends on who I ask.

Jena said...

Yeah, I didn't know what I was talking about when I said you prefered them, so thank you for clearing that up. Is that why you didn't have a crush on me in high school?

AnneGirl said...

Ok, I meant both.

Jon said...

Jena - Um . . . yes? no? I'm not sure what you're getting at with that question.

Jena said...

I'm sorry I forgot to apply the sarcasm tag to that one. Calm down.

Maria said...

uh... i still do not know what xanthochroi is. hmm. and merriam webster won't give me the definition... tear.

Jena said...

I'll give you a hint: if we were in high school, Jon would be dating you but not me. But I wouldn't trade mine for the world.

Jon said...

Jena just drop it.

Maria said...

it has to do with hair color and complexion. hmm.

well then. I have a funny story.

On the first day of school, I was sitting on a patch of grass outside of the MARB waiting for Calli's class to get done. I was fingering/combing through my hair while working on homework. Lydia P. came up to me and started laughing while she told me that the two guys that were walking away from us (at that point) had switched their converstation about some science topic to how "xanthorchoric" girls are asked out on dates far more often than brunettes. We laughed.

By the way Jena, thanks for the hint- but I am pretty sure Jon and I would never have gone out in High School. :)

Jena said...

So who thinks Jon should date more? Everyone raise your hand.

Okay, it's a pathetic attempt. But I tried

Jon said...

That was pretty good, Meagan!

But nevertheless, I refer you to my blog of Monday, August 2, 2004.

Jon said...

And just for the record, the real reason I didn't date Jena in High School is because of ROB!

So there.

Jon said...

And Maria, that probably meant they were thinking of asking you out, but because you were a Xanthochra, they figured you already got asked out on too many dates anyway.

And you can tell that Jena and I have been friends for a long time, because, after 7 years of training, she knows exactly which of my buttons to push.

Meagan said...

Your blog is actually quite hilarious because my sister was just pontificating on her desire for a date. I think I'll be nice and protect YOU from HER (:

Jon said...

Well, I was actually referring to sisters in the general, figurative sense, but you're right, the coincidence IS funny.

Jena said...

JONATHAN DAVID HARMON!

Jena said...

Leta, Angie, Lucy, Mikel, Becky!

Mlah!

Jon said...

In case you've forgetten, I didn't actually date any of those girls!

And it's true! Between Rob and Rick, you wouldn't have ever given me the time of day!

Jon said...

You know what? Hard as it may be to believe, this blog was originally about Meagan and her first week of school. Why are half of these nearly 30 comments about me?!

Jena said...

Hello?! I didn't actually date Rob or Rick either!

Jena said...

Back to Meagan.

Jena said...

Wait a sec, this was your third semester? Last year you were a freshman?! I had no idea. Props to you for knowing what you want and sticking with it (English). I'm really excited for you!

Meagan said...

Oh no, I meant the beginning of the school year (like September to April), so I am a junior. Thanks for the compliment though (:

Maria said...

meagan- you are only 100 away from matching your highest number of comments! (well, 99 after i post this).

and jon- i am sure they were not thinking of asking me out. One of them was married.

AnneGirl said...

New blog! New blog! New blog! Oh. I'm sorry. Was I chanting again?

Adriane said...

Lol...oh, oooops!
