Remember that mission prep class that some of us took at BYU-Idaho. I remember taking the class with Creed, Tyson, and Zack. There might have been one other Stallion in that class, but I can't remember.
Anyways, that class was so fun. It was also wierd. Wierd enough to make me want to doodle the occurances that took place every day in that class. This illustration might be offensive to some, so I apologize. I drew this in 2002. can you blame me?
Before I get too involved, like a fat lady expanding her way in diabetic tights and unfortunate loafers, the above picture will be my prompt for the rest of this post...
First, some comments:
1- Brad, did you take the whig picture after church? Didn't have much else to do than look like Bon Jovi. By that time my face is covered in roast and starch, patience isn't a virtue from 4:15 to 4:30 in my house.
2- I'm glad to see that someone put our picture up without the expressed consent of those captured. Truth be told, I would have preferred something like Creed and Tiffany's landscape, with Creed looking like he's trying to read French. As for me, I look like I care about our pose, and I think that had I known my attempt to show some Adam's apple and neck were lost in an Adam's mango, I would have been less enthusiastic.
3- Tyson, you can relax that massive fore-arm. I didn't think Daegan was that heavy, and we all know you're huge.
4- Why is it that the single guys have to look like they can't maintain their normal inhibitions against yelling in driving automobiles from all of the excitement of lonely nights and boring Sunday school lessons? If that picture was accurate in the least, it would contain a tear and some guy from the ward trying to tell a story while vocalizing his effort to remember words like "bread" or "book" in English. Awe... singleness is fun, but I prefer The Bachelor and dirty bathrooms. Anyway, come on Quinn. Let's hear about what you're really doing at 9:00 pm on any given Saturday.
If you are one of the people that checks this blog often and still does not see your picture along the right side or do not yet have authorship then please send me a picture and accept the invitation sent to your inbox. we've about got everyone up and running. Also, if you want to update your picture on the side just post it or email it to me. I will get it done.
Alright stallions. Jameson has been trying to get us all to use this blog a little more. So I have decided to give you all an incentive to let us know who uses this blog. Watch this video and then comment on it so that we know who is reading this blog. Spread the word that this video is on the Stallion Blog so that we can get 100% attendance.
Note: Forgive me for not being creative with music and slow motion. I decided to do a quick editing job. Next time I'll do something sweet.
After the many admonitions and not so subtle hints from Jamison, I decided that I should contribute something to our bomb dizzle web site. We're enjoying Moscow and med school (only 3 weeks of class left for my first year...crazy). I'm learning a lot, but no I can't tell yet if the moles on your back are cancerous, so don't ask (that's my grandma's favorite question now). We have finally figured out what we'll be doing this summer. I've learned the process of setting up research with live patients, and it's kind of a pain in the rump. After several long research proposals and about 4 committees, I've got osteoperosis/stress fracture research funded for 10 weeks at WSU/UI. It should be pretty fun, I've hooked up with a researcher that has a lot of experience in biomechanics and Sports Medicine and together we're testing several exercise regimens and how they effect bone density in young kids. I'll be assaying specific bone markers and.........ok wake up, I'll spare you the boring details (call me if really want to know what I'm doing, it's pretty sweet). Anyway, we'll be here in Moscow for the first 10 weeks of the summer. Also, I was accepted into a sweet program (Rural Underserved Opportunities Program) where I get a stipend and am assigned to a rural doctor for 4 weeks. Guess where their sending me...the Burg! Yup, Rexburg does qualify as rural and underserved in the medical community. So, for 4 weeks (~July-August) we'll be chillin' in Rexburg. Well, I might be really busy actually, but I'm sure we can fit in some climbing/camping/ram ballin' etc. After this, we're going to pack up and move to Seattle. It's a cool town, so we better get some visitors while we're there. So, that's the quick run down. We're excited that we get to hang with some stallions before we move to the big city!
P.S. Here are our most recent family photos, we may have changed a little since you saw us last (We have all gained a little weight). I also added a picture of me...I have been missing the band playing days.
The Eaton's are hopeful for this summer. We will be in Rexburg but traveling to some-what near by locations for fun. Our trips have already begun:
Jennilyn spent seven days in Logan, UT with her family. After the 6th day, I met up with her and did a "teaser run" in Walden Park to prepare us for the Salt Lake City Marathon. We ran anywhere from 20-22 miles. Later that day, I met with two individuals about possible employment as the Program Director for The Front Climbing Gym in Ogden. Then we loaded up in our mini-van and took of to Moab, UT to do some red-rock crack climbing.
Today, I competed in a climbing competition at ISU. I was the only adult to compete, but I felt like I established a personal record.
We're going to sit tight for a little and then on April 18, we get to run the 26.2 miles of the SLC Marathon. Several hours after that we are going to WICKED, a play about the witches from the Wizard of OZ.
I will be directing the Teton Dam Marathon & Races again this year, so June tends to be a little busy for me. But throughout the rest of the summer we plan on climbing and camping. I'm gonna try to make it so that we can attend some days of the International Climbers Festival in Wyoming in August. Jennilyn wants to run the Teton Dam Half-marathon. Both of us plan on climbing Mt. Moran this summer.
So if any of you distant Stallions come to Rexburg for the summer, look us up. We now live in the Village Apartments.
Pictures of your Baby Stallions are always fun for everyone to see!
Hey we are responsible adults now! Yikes! Take the time to update your fellows on your whereabouts and achievements. We have friends all over the country right now, and we don't have the time to get together and play RAMBBAUGHL very much any more! So keep in touch and encourage others to contribute!
