Boo creepy foot doctor! Hooray beer!

Do you remember this. Megan, Cassidy and I laughed for an hour when we first saw it. Here is my take on it:

Boo exhaustion from not sleeping at night! Hooray long weekends!
Boo mean boss! Hooray having a job!

Boo creepy Rabbi's that hit on me! Hooray all the Jewish holidays I have off!
Boo classes on Thursday nights when I should be watching the Office! Hooray VCRs!
Boo nosy mailman! Hooray hour long lunch breaks!
Boo condescending to call me "honey"! Hooray elevating me to "The Myra"!

Boo people who don't like jokes! Hooray sillyness and laughter!

Boo Las Vegas peter pans! Hooray BEFF/BFFs!

Boo empty toilet paper holders! Hooray Brownie Fudge Sundaes.
Boo people who talk during favorite TV shows! Hooray The Office!

Boo Heidi and Spencer! Hooray Lauren!

Boo no one will come to our socially unacceptable party! Hooray awkward affection!

I have a driving phobia!

Maybe the reason I love this Radiohead song, is because I can relate to it. Maybe this driving phobia is also the reason I didn't get my drivers license until I was 23.

p.s. I didn't choose the actual music video for this, because it is a little too violent for me.

I am tired of finding cockroaches in my bed!

Last night I went through my nightly ritual of shaking my blanket out and checking under my pillows for cockroaches before I get into bed. I have become a lot more relaxed about checking, because I haven't found one for a few months. Sometimes when Amy is already asleep I have to do my night check in the dark, with my little flashlight. Last night she was asleep and lo and behold there was a decent sized cockroach under my blanket and it darted away from me. Of course I screamed(and Amy stirred a bit) and I tried to find it. It went under my comforter so I tried to lift it up without having the stupid bug crawl onto me, and it scurried out onto my bed again and in a panic I smashed it onto my bed. So now there is a nice cockroach stain on my off-white comforter!

My room mates(that I adore) were so kind to throw me a surprise party on Friday. When I opened the door ONE person was standing in the dark and screamed "RAAAW"! I thought "Alright, so one person is at my surprise party." Then a little bit after three more people yelled "SURPRISE"!!! So four people were at my surprise party. AWKWARD! HA Ha ha, it is quite amusing to think about it now. *note: More people showed up eventually and I am so grateful for all the work my room mates put into it.

So on that same note, I think I am ready for a change. Our lease at Eagle Crest apts is coming to an end and we are moving into the glorious Canyon Villas. It seems like a really nice apt, so I am hoping the rumors of them having some bug problems aren't true! Cross your fingers for me. My co-worker has scorpions in her house, so I guess I shouldn't complain. I guess it is this wonderful town of Sin city that just draws all of Satan's creatures in. Yes, I do believe cockroaches are of the Devil. Also hopefully our new ward will provide more friends to come to a surprise party if there is ever one to be thrown in the future.

I am sorry Mrs. Jackson I am for REAL!

Most of you that know me, know that I am a very real person. I am terrible at being fake. When I have tried to be fake people usually can see right through me! Now you are probably thinking "Myra, that is a good thing." Well my dear Internet friends, you may think it is a good thing, but sometimes it is not. Here are a few examples of when it is bad:
1) When I have a crush on a boy I am not very good at hiding it. Like if I see him and am not expecting it, I usually turn a bright shade of red. But then again I also turn red over the most ridiculous things;If I feel at all uncomfortable or awkward the redness comes out!
2) When I really don't like someone I am not good at pretending I do. This is difficult when I have to interact a lot with someone that I don't like. I try really hard to pretend that I like them, but I am lousy at it!
3) If someone says something rude to me, that actually hurts my feelings, I am not good at faking that it didn't bother me.
4) When something is really funny, but it is inappropriate to laugh, I usually can't control myself and I just lose it! This can be really embarassing to myself and others. One time on my mission I was at a dinner appointment with my companion, two elders and A couple that were members from their ward that I hadn't met before. The woman started telling us about her dead mother-in-law and how sick she had become before she died (oh I just started laughing here at my computer all by myself). She then said that her mother-in-law used to be sitting at the table eating dinner with them and would just fall over out of her chair. For some reason I pictured this in my head and almost busted up laughing. As I am sitting there trying to contain myself, I kept coughing to hide the fact that I was smirking. Then as I think I am hiding it pretty well she asks me "Are you alright Sister Bybee?" And I lost it! I started laughing uncontrollably. I felt awful. Here I was a sister missionary, and I was laughing at her dead mother-in-law! This is just one of the many times that I have lost it like this. If something is funny I have a really hard time hiding it.
These are just a few examples of the many ways in which I am terrible at faking it! So I guess I will just keep on keepin' it real!
P.S. You guys should really do a google image search of keepin it real. There are some hillarious photos on there!
