Things people don't know about u.
I'm totally OCD. I don't really like to have people know this about me, because I can control it enough to the point that they wouldn't ever know. But I know just how I left a room when I leave, and then when something isn't the same when I'm back, I know someone's done something to change it on me. Michael calls me a detective because when I come home from work, I know if he's cleaned something, what he's eaten. It came in handy when I was away at school because I always knew if someone had been in my room.

What is the silliest prank you ever played on someone?
I don't have a lot that I can recall. We took all of the pillows off of some guys' apartment couches and hid them from them for a long time. I do have the best one that was pulled on us. We woke up one morning and opened the front door to find that all of the cinder blocks that made up the retaining wall right outside our door had been piled up in front of it. We had to crawl out the window and take them down and rebuild the wall. That was awesome!

If money were no object what would you do with your life?
Have a million kids, learn tons of musical instruments. Travel everywhere. Go around giving money to others when they least expect it. Really...what wouldn't I do??

2 Favorite vacation spots
Haven't been travelling a ton. Our cruise was AMAZING. Any of the stops there. Anywhere with Michael. I love travelling with him. No matter where we go, we have the BEST time!

What is the wierdest thing you'd ever admit to having done in the past?
I once convinced some guys in my student ward that I was a black-belt in karate. They'd always try and get me to show some stuff, and I'd always refuse. I honestly to this day think that they believe me. That was a good one. I also remember that one night when they were trying to get me to demonstrate, Jeni offered to show them her stuff, and she split her pants doing a high kick!! (remember that Milla???)

What song best describes you in the morning?
I really have no idea, nor the brain power to remember song titles at this point in my life.

What US destination would you be most likely to visit & why?
Church history sites back east. New York. The southern states...any of them. I'd really go anywhere.

Is your calendar always on the correct month?
If I'm working yes...if not, there is no calendar.

Desk Messy or organized
Usually messy as I work, but always clean before I go home. I sort of like having a messy desk, it makes me feel very busy.

Pet ownership - which is better; dog or cat?
NEITHER - no pets EVER.

Are you always early or late?
I used to be early, but now I'm always late it seems. I won't get into why.

Favorite childhood memory
Dancing to The Nutcracker with my sisters at Christmas time.
Trips to Utah and Arizona and singing in the car.
Christmas morning...trying to sleep the night before and thinking everything I heard was Santa.
Playing in our condo with Murdocks and Heningers...especially at night in the summer...playing capture the flag and 1.2.3. The summer night was awesome!

What talent would people be surprised to hear you have?
I used to take singing lessons. I hate singing solos...love choirs and groups.

Have you ever broken a bone?
2 actually. I broke my arm falling off of my bunkbed while I was sleeping. I also had a girl fall on me and break my colarbone.

What is your favorite way to relax?
Watching something on tv and falling asleep to it without have to wake up for anything later on. This is especially the best when you're in front of a lit Christmas tree and no other lights are on but those! Oh, I can't wait.

I now tag all of my sisters who are worse at blogging than I am. You know who you are!

I don't think you hide your OCD as well as you think you do! Ya freak.

I laughed out loud at your being late...MICHAEL!

With your sleeping story...(on the couch not having to wake up for anything...and the CHristmas lights...mmmmm...)...you made me think of this one time when that happened to me...SIX YEARS AGO....Just a memory Melin! Just a memory!!

BTW; I was only kidding about the freak thing. I love you.

Haha I too started laughing at the late question -- no doubt it's the palmer! And I absolutely LOVE hearing about yours and Heathers pranks from college... I've started making a list so that I can pull them on others as well! :D Thanks for the tips! If you think of any more... email or facebook them to me! :D Haha I can't wait!

Just wait until your baby comes... you'll ALWAYS be late. And by the time you carry everything out into the car, you're sweating so bad that you just want to cry.

But I promise everything else is WONDERFUL. :) p.s. Your tummy looks so cute.
