Just in Case

In case I die and I don't get around to doing a legit will, we're going to count this blog post as my will.

Request 1: Whatever nominal funds I have, they are to be donated to either SUU, OSU, or some arts program for children. Pick one. I'll be dead, so I won't have much say in the matter.

Request 2: "The Lord is My Shepherd" from John Rutter's Requiem must be played at my funeral. It's pretty much the most beautiful piece ever.

Request 3: Don't fight over my stuff. Donate my instruments to the ICSD. All of my cool clothes should either be burned, shredded, cut up and made into blankets, or shipped to third-world or developing countries.

Shortest will ever.

My living will: keep me alive as long as insurance covers it. After that, pull the plug. Please. Your money is more valuable than my life... probably.

I'm What Now?

Last weekend, I had the privilege to travel to Temecula, CA to speak at my nephew's baptism (I almost typed funeral... weird).

It was fantastic being in the 70 degree weather in February. It was also fantastic being with so many family members.

One of my nieces, Ella (who we lovingly call "YElla" due to her abnormally high decibel levels) is a doll. She is five, blonde, nice white teeth, a big mouth, and I'm probably her favorite uncle.

Who am I kidding? I'm definitely her favorite uncle.

Anywho, after family prayer, the kids go around the circle of people and give hugs and kisses. As soon as "hugs and kisses" time started, Ella ran over to me, threw her arms around me, pulled back, looked at me, and said in her very loud voice, "I'm hugging you first because you're the weirdest!"

Well, I'm glad she knows why I'm her favorite.

World Nutella Day!

How did you celebrate February 5? Aka, World Nutella Day?

I had a Nutella and banana sandwich. And ice cream with Nutella. Yum.
