(brevity of this post brought to you by the fact that the newly weds live in a trailer that has no internet hooked up... their iphones are the only connection to the information super highway)

And just in case you might be wondering why i am marrying this young gentlemen,
and introduction to mr. champlin- the boy i'm going to marry and/or-
a brief explanation of some of the reasons i want to be with him everywhere:
#1 Crazy Smart: I have yet to ever bring up a topic that he doesn't know something interesting about.
(early in our courtship i thought i would stump him with
poets or books or theatre references- but not this kid. And when I called him excited from El Salvador after going to a zoo (for the first time in my life), i exclaimed, "elephants have eye lashes!" but he already knew, and told me a lot more about elephants. This is how lots of conversations roll.
#3. He is consistently doing things that crack me up.
And let's be real- funny does for me what Angelina Jolie does for most guys.
#4 When he cracks up he gets these really adorable lines in his cheeks (which have a beard on them-which i love) and around his eyes (which are blue-which i love), and his head bobs. its seriously awesome.
#5 He's into lots things which are awesome
(nightmare jokes, incaseyoudon'tknow, are what he tells me when i wake up/call him in the middle of the night from a bad nightmare.. my favorite 3:00am nightmare joke involved Tom Cruise-you'll have to get him to tell it).
he cares about the world. he wants to make it better.
he delivers flowers.
#Lastly (and this is by no means a comprehensive list) he is patient.
after two and a half years of on again-off again- up and down/all over the place dating, i nearly smashed both of our hearts to bits
(and i am positive i smashed some feelings of other innocent kind people as well, and to you people-- i don't know how to say i am sorry. you are not required to ever forgive me although i would really like that)
BUT he was patient, and kind and has always assured me that he would never give up on me.
I realize to some- this engagement may have seem to have come on fast and to those
"when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with someone,

In all the things toward which I feel
this kinship and closeness, I always find you:
basking like seed in the very smallest
and giving yourself greatly to the great.
Such is the wondrous game the forces play
as they flow so selflessly through the things:
swelling in roots, narrowing in the long stems,
and in the blooming crowns: a resurrection.
-Rainer Maria Rilke

Be: you, T-shirt. the movies. running.
you and your shorts. you sleeping
you in my every-so-often dreams
that's enough for you?
Leave: you, logical. keyboards
you and the right answer
you, with some kind of unbalanced weight of hope
that i wrapped up in your t-shirt and shorts
i want to be(lieve) what i thought you thought
i don't really know if you be.leave me
i believe what i told you
i (want to) be lieve that what is
wrapped up in your t-shirt and shorts
will come back to me someday
it is enough. and it isn't enough.

sometimes people like Aaron Eckhart and Niel LaBute graduated from BYU..
((side note))remember when my current acting teacher played the original
Christine in the first working production of In The Company of Men.. (woah)

I am playing Paula..
Dialogue: Act II: "...the breakup takes place in parts. The brain, the heart, the body, mutual things, shared things. The mind leaves but the heart is still there. The heart has left but the body wants to stay. The body leaves but the things are still at the apartment. You must come back. You move everything out of the apartment. You must come back. You move everything out of the apartment but the mind stays behind. Memory lingers in the place... "

i want the satisfaction/inspiration of finishing a book... but I don't feel like reading.
i want to loose 10 lbs.. but i don't want to go to they gym (or stop eating chocolate).
i want to be understood.. but i don't want to find the words to explain myself.
i want more money.. but i don't want to go to work.
i want to move to a new city.. but i just want to go home.
totally reasonable, right?
