mini-class on blogging, maybe???

Oh my gosh, yesterday was SUPER akward!!! Been working on perfecting the presentation for it and finally taught my mini-class for enrichment on
hAiRbAnD-mAkInG {which eminates cuteness in a very cute way} but OF COURSE some frump of a b-r-a-t scheduled this ethnic cooking class also for the exact-same time so it was sort of like the Sharps and the Jets or whatever, total fued, and we both brought our expensive cameras, ended up that her cooking class had two more people then my class did, soooo humilliating!!

{{{crinnnnge}}}

Should I chop it up to people being jealous of me or just that everyone took pitty and went to her's to try to make her feel good about herself for once?

What should I teach next time to really let my light outshine others?

I think you should teach a class about the importance of self-sacrifice and how to put others' needs above your own, TAMN. Like that one time that you couldn't figure out what to get JJWT for his birthday, so you went out and bought yourself everything you had ever wanted so he didn't have to listen to a (*adorable* - but) nagging wife. That was so selfless of you. I think that cooking lady could learn from your example.

Oh, it's def jealously.

I've learned the hard way that people are so open to satan and hating that they are totally jealous of me. They always come up with some excuse like, I'm self-absorbed, gossipy, self-rightous, bragging or WHATEVER.

If they weren't jealous, they wouldn't be bothered by the fact that I have a better life, am more interesting, more righteous, and have cuter trials than they do.

I can't believe you weren't teaching about how to sew your own cloth diapers. I would think you would be all over that.

Kristine said...

heh. Sharps.

i love this blog.

hairband making? why do we feel this constant need to decorate ourselves? I could never live in utah. I'd end up stabbing myself with a spoon.

I would have gone to youre class, TAMN. Ethnic food makes me uncomfortable. And when I'm uncomfortable I feel like the spirit is leaving, so I just only eat at CHEESECAKE or maybe Los hermanos once a year.

Mishqueen said...

You should have made ETHNIC hair bands!

"chop it up" ROFL ! Seriously so hilarious. Great post. XOXO, love you.

Jenni said...

Chop it up!! Took me three reads to get it!! love it.

Anne said...

Ewww!!! But now I'm wondering...were the girls in your class all totally cute and stylish? And were the girls in her class all spinsty and tubalardy? 'Cause only spinsty girls like to cook. Which is a waste of time since they don't have a totally HOTT husband like JJWT to cook for. Frownsmile.

It's all about quality, not quantity, TAMN.

Tay said...

oh a photog class - for def!

The Boob Nazi said...

Pitty for sure.

Kristen said...

I vote yes to the blogging class! We had one for enrichment a few months ago, but it was frumpily taught and they didn't even mention how to use excessive exclamations and ALL CAPS for emphasis! Yours would have been much more uplifting and cuter!!!
And thanks for the West Side Story reference, made my day!

emily said...

Ha! That's the best post I've seen in awhile! Thanks for the laugh! I would definitely teach a "sell a subscription to your photography blog on etsy" class. Something that combines three way cute things into one...top that bratty frumpity frump girl!

I've heard that a local mortuary will send someone to teach a class on estate planning and/or memory boxes. Or you can get those people that teach their special bread recipe that uses their exclusive ingredient, which they won't of course sell directly from the church building, but they'll take your order--or they'll sell to you in the parking lot.

You could design some sort of totally original pattern for a table runner or baby bib or crocheted dish cloth or fabric corsage that's slightly different from patterns already on the market, and teach a class that uses the pattern. (Don't discount the price of the pattern for your ward members.) Or if you don't have time to do that, just photocopy a commercial pattern.

The best thing, though is to pull one of your strings to bring in a semi-celebrity. General authorities are okay, LDS athletes are even better, but former American Idol contestants are best. When you introduce them make sure you emphasize just how close you are to them and/or how pivotal they have been in your life. Don't be shy to get very emotional in talking about yourself and how much they've meant to you.

It's because of all those *whisper* IMMIGRANTS. They're taking over and they're going to destroy our hairband-making culture! (It's totes in the Doctor and Covenants that our culture is the best bee tee dub).

debbie said...

I rilly love the "They're just jealous" phrase. The newspaper had an story about a 20 year old girl with four kids just getting her high school diploma. She said sometimes people get on her case about having so many kids while she's so young. She said,"They're just jealous." What planet do these people live on!?!! (btw she's hoping to save enough money to marry her kids'dad sometime.)

The sisters who attended the ethnic cooking class were just trying to show that they're politically correct and not raciest. What ethnicity was it? If it was Cajun cooking then they were trying to show support for the people on the Gulf Coast. unless they also included voodoo to put a hex on your class to lower attendance?

When are you going to teach them a fondant class?

Jessica said...

No no no, I've got it. Homemade cloth diapers ('cuz you're totally earthy and granola in an adorable, not frumpy way) but with FABRIC FLOWERS to show how fashiony you are!

Marie said...

Just found your blog! It's awesome, thanks for the laughs. I totally fit the mold, but hey I can laugh at myself!

heather said...

Clearly your ward is full of frumps. Its such a good thing that you are there, so you can set the example.

Leah said...

How about a class called "Craetive Spelling?"

Mhana said...

I don't think you should be hating like that. I mean for serious, honor diversify! I lurve ethnic food and if you think about it you do too! I lurve going to chang's and getting some super authentic lettice raps and getting sorbet themed froyo (Bad, I know) which is like little Italy.

Super cute idea. Next time offer a cooking class of decadent fat-free desserts only prepair in advance fatty yumminess. Then when they try to prepare the lo-fat recipe at home it won't work and will be gross AND yule have fed them calories so theyl'l be chubbers! WIN-WIN!!!

Heather said...

In my ward, they all would have gone to the hairband making class.

Amy said...

Tips for better nuzzling, a la, spice up your love life! It sounds kinda ethinicky!

Sara and Matt said...

I love how you still call it ENRICHMENT!! Hahahaha!

"to really let my light outshine others"

It never ceases to amaze me how dead-on you are!
Love it!
Love you!

Tiffany said...

I think Anne hit it right on the money that the spinsty tubalardy girls went to the cooking class. Ethnic cooking? Hello? Granola much? Also I think myimaghinaryblog might have some issues... :-)

Sarah F said...

did she have free food to go along with the cooking class? if so, that's the only reason why her class had more people! it's a fact-- bring food, people will come!
Whatever you teach next, bring some tasties and you'll win the numbers game for sure!

Gwen said...

You should teach a "How to be an awesome wife like me class" That's what I'm doing next week :)

xoxo,
Gwen

Steph said...

you should teach a mini-class about how to cut mens/boys hair. i have had at least 3 enrichments in less than 2 years with some hair school girl teaching with her husband as the model. and you were seriously bon losee's best student ever, so don't hide your talents girl!

How about making head bands from old cloth diapers with flowers in the colors of other countries soccer team?

Sarah said...

Okay I'm rilly thinking I need to {FoCuS} more on my scripture study because their're parts of scriptures that you remember that I {{{SWEAR}}} I've never even read! The outshining thing? How did I miss THAT???

Um, I totes think you shood teach a class about s.e.x. No frumpy spinsters though!!! Married ladies only!!! Or maybe you could invite some of the laurels that are about to go off to Breed Em Young so they no what they have too look forward too!!!

The Fishops said...

Craetive Spelling - LOL!!! My tied favourite with chopping it up to experience!

Leah Rimsey said...

I've been thinking about that other class because it is hard to fathom that more people went to it than yours, and actually did a little research on it. I think maybe you can chop it up to cilantro. You see, cilantro is very popular right now and widely used in Mexican, Caribbean and Asian cooking (ethnic, Cafe Rio, etc.) Cilantro is actually a part of the coriander plant. Aha! So perhaps it is that Book of Mormon connection that enticed more people. Possibility, anyway.

jdb in AZ said...

What did you give JJWT for Fathers' Day that was really meant for you to use?

A guy in our ward offered his wife a boob job for her birthday, but she refused cuz it would've benefited him more than her.

Melinda said...

I don't mean to brag or anything (but I totally am), but I have out-TAMNed you. I made my baby boy a hairband with a football on it. Cuz baby girls aren't the only ones who get cute things on their heads. And he wore it to Church. And now everyone at Church thinks I am the coolest mom ever.

(If I had a daughter, this wouldn't have happened. But I have boys, and I must have adorable hairbands. A ballbow was the only option.)

Ashley Madsen said...

Why do I have to be the one that gets the "Sharps and Jets" comment.

You know... when you can't sleep and there's nothing else on...

yeah.

"Really let my light outshine others"--possibly your kick-Aiest quote yet.
