Oh, for the Love of Utah Truffles

Embarking on my movie-making career, I filmed this short YouTube video using my Nikon point-and-shoot camera last week. Like it? Eh, eh?

Bring On Another Long, Hot Summer

In the words of a friend of mine, I'm "trunky" every time I think about how awesome last summer was. (I realize I could be using a pretty derogatory word here, but I don't know any better) I'm pretty sure it ranks as the top summer I've ever experienced - minus the summer where I chased down the ice cream truck everyday.

One of the reasons I get "trunky" is because summer is so gosh darn fun! Seriously, everyone around here says they prefer to be shivering cold than sweating in the heat, but you can't go boating, hiking, rock climbing, dance in the rain, lay on the green grass with a book, have a picnic, play volleyball at the park, swim outside, garden, randomly run away to the reservoir and play frisbee for an afternoon, take long walks past sundown, watch fireworks, go to carnivals, attend outdoor concerts, or just wander around town looking for adventure during a Utah winter. At least, you can't do those things without freezing your butt off.

These folks are what made summer the best.

Last summer was also great because of the many friends I had. Who knows where we'll all be - and what we'll be doing - next summer, but if they're still around when summer hits in Logan, you know where I'll be.

So when I stumbled on a Keith Urban song tonight, I started getting "trunky" again. Forgive me, but I am. I miss the freedom to just run outside and play in shorts and a T-shirt, and be barefoot at the same time. All hail Global Warming! I'm sick of shivering at the bus stop in the mornings. Bring on another long, hot summer.


....And nothing beats those sunsets. I recently watched one, and it was weak sauce. Summer sunsets totally rock.
