What do you want for Chrsitmas and your birthday? Anything you need?I'm trying to get all of my Christmas shopping done before December so I can avoid the stress of trying to work and shop last minute. Well, I don't know what else to say for now. I hope to hear back from you so I can know what you want. I love you cutie. Have a good day and don't forget to send some pictures. Oh, you remember Shelley, my voice teacher? Elder Dixon was companions with her brother-in-law. His name is Elder Colton. Do you know him? You might have been in the MTC with him. Well, just wanted to let you know that. Well, I'm off to do homework and then go shopping. I love you. Have a tiggerific day!! TTFN(ta-ta-for-now) Christie Subject: OMG!!!!!!! Received: Thu Nov 19 01:32:59 1998 From: "Travis A. Vowles" You wouldn't BELIEVE the Voyager that I just finished watching! Remember years ago at the first house you lived at when you moved up to Utah when we were out playing with the Star Trek figurines in the snow and we crashed the ships into it? Voyager JUST DID THAT! :) It was SOOOOOOO kewl! It was Voyager 100th episode guest starring a certain "Captain Geordi LaForge." It was SOO neat! What happened was that Voyager implemented the new "Slipstream Drive" that they had learned about last season and started to travel home, with Chakotay and Harry Kim leading the way in the Delta Flyer to make the course corrections and all that. Anyway, as time went on, the Delta Flyer made it thru, but Voyager crash landed on a Class L planet and all the crew were killed, so the entire episode took place in the Alpha Quadrant 15 years in the future and had Chakotay and Kim trying to fix everything that went wrong. Needless to say, they did, and Voyager is now 10 years closer to Earth because of their "stint" in the Slipstream, but they're not home yet. It was REALLY kewl tho! You wouldn't BELIVE how much the effects on Voyager and DS9 have increased over the last year! Its truely amazing! Anyway, next week's looks really kewl, because Seven developes "Multiple Pursonalities" because of all the people she assimilated as a Borg, and the preview said "you won't believe the outcome" with the doctor saying "She's dead." Now...what that means...I don't know...I can't IMAGINE them killing off their sex-goddess-ratings-getter, but you never know...we'll have to see! Anyway, I gotta go...I've got a philosophy midterm tomorrow morning! :( ick! But hopefully I'll at least do okay...and I might have a date tomorrow! :) I'll give you more details later, since you won't be reading this until Monday anyway. Talk to you later! Su Amigo, Travis Subject: hmmm... Received: Sat Nov 28 03:21:19 1998 From: "Travis A. Vowles" always, it seems like about now life sucks. It just seems to me that everything in life seems to hit you at one time, and the entire framework just comes crashing down on top of you while you watch helplessly. I wish you were hear, Jacob. I feel like there are so many things all pressing in on me at the same time...all of which I am completely powerless to do anything about...i feel this complete loss of control about everything in my life, and I need someone to help me try to sort through it all...why is everything so complicated...and why do all the pieces fall apart at once?? I personally can't wait until you get back from you Mission. I need someone to talk to so much! Someone that's not connected directly to all the other parts of me which are causing all this strife. I need someone here who is unassociated with Dad's death...someone I can talk to who isn't personally and emotionally attached to the issue. I need a non-gay friend who I can talk to about the turmoil and strife I'm facing internally...wanting to protect myself without causing myself the pain of keeping everything inside, which I seem to have felt in abundance recently. I'm sorry to be laying all of this on your shoulders...especially now that you are in a place where you can't offer me any help...I just feel so many pressure right now from family and school and work and "Outing" and everything and it just feels like I'm gonna snap! What I need right now is to get away! I need to leave school for a while, which will happen, because break is coming up...maybe take a weekend off of work and try to find some time for myself! And I need to get out of here! I can't live in Alpine anymore...not when my live is in San Diego...and I NEED to be on my own! Away from the pressures of much as I know that mom needs me right now, I need to get some air! Why isn't there a simple answer to life? Why does everything have to be so complicated? GOD! I'm getting tired to dealing with it all! I'm gonna go off to sleep now. I need to try to get some rest...maybe things will be clearer in the morning...please!... Your confused and desperate friend, Travis Subject: Hugs Received: Wed Nov 25 22:37:38 1998 From: (Anna C Naylor) That's good that you finally have a car. It sounds special to be able to interview people before they get baptized. Oh, I have a question....did you ever get your package from mom with the shirts and music? We were just wondering about that one. I am meeting most of Brian's family for Thanksgiving. We are going to three or four different places to visit with everyone. I think the family is going with Steve, Susan, Grandma, and the kids to see the new Disney movie "A Bug's Life". I am working a lot lately. I finally started at the Disney Store. It's going to be an interesting job. I am working a lot at the counseling center too. I have been told that I can have as many hours as I want. That's good because I need lots of money. I have made another tape for you and will try to send it by Monday. It is your Manheim Steamroller Live CD. Well, not too much else to say, so I'll write more later. I gotta run off to school now though. I love you and I miss you. Love always, Christie Subject: hallalula!!! Received: Mon Nov 23 11:42:04 1998 From: bauman finally got the hell out of my life!!! Subject: back in Utah again Received: Mon, Nov 23 12:38:50 1998 From: (Helen M Naylor) Hello again! It's late and I want to get this to you before I go to bed because I know I won't get a chance with the girls awake. So in order to get this to you before you get your e-mail. Did you get your package yet? I hope so. I hope the chocolate arrived in it's original condition. It was a busy week last week. I have so little free time. Michael had short days Tues - Friday, so we decided to go to Disneyland, but I did the "secret adventure" thing and wouldn't tell them where we were going. Lizzie knew and Grandma too, but the boys just had to sit and complain about how the drive was too long, where were we going, etc., but they were at least happy when they got there. I never know how Michael is going to react to anything any more. He's so unpredictable these days. I had his parent/teacher conference on Tuesday. I was a little afraid of the report, but it was just fine. Mrs. Bryan says that Michael has great leadership qualities, and because he's in a K-1 that the kindergarten boys pay attention to what he says because they respect him. He's fine in all areas, but he's a little behind in his reading skills. While I'm here in Utah I'm going to let Cindy do an evaluation on him, to see if she can give me some hints on how to help him with his reading. Then I'll make a quick trip to the die-cut store while I wait for him. I hope I can get a little time in there. I'm a true addict. Anyway, I think he'll be just fine. Thomas is beginning to exhibit some "Michael" tendencies. Little bursts of temper, picky eating, not wanting to be too helpful. It comes and goes, but I hope it keeps on going, and going, and going away! All seems quiet on the western front, except of course this thing with Christie and Brian. We'll talk later. Dad seems to be surviving his schedule. I hope it doesn't wipe him out. But he's ever going ahead. I think he's starting to want us to come back to Utah, or him to go down to California. I wouldn't want him to leave his job at this point. I think we'll probably stay in CA at least until the end of the school year. Lizzie has her Washington, D.C. trip, and I wouldn't want her to miss out on that. I'm still doing things with the candles, and hopefully that will pick up. It's going okay, but not enough to support a family. I need to work harder! So I am. I guess everyone's going to CA for Christmas. It will be fun with Marian home. Then next year it will be fun with you! Well, I'm tired. After going to Disneyland on Friday, I had a candle party on Saturday morning, came home and didn't leave for Utah until 4:00pm. So I got into Sandy at about 5:00am, slept for about 3 hours, then up again. It is now 1:30am and it's time for me to go to sleep. I love you. Good luck on your war with the beast. Hope your hands are feeling better so that you get to keep the car! Talk to you soon son! Love, Mom XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOX Subject: Think about it!

Well school has been in for over a month...we had lost internet services for awhile.It is still be discussed if the kids will get the internet back it is so difficult to monitor. I 've not talked to Trav in awhile I see Brett and he says betweeen school and work Travis is very busy. I don't know if you knew that Max & I had to piece out our video, we could't even sell it. The competion is so tough and a Hollywood Video moved into Lakeside, that just about finished us. We lost a good deal of $ but however in exchange we now have a LIFE. You know that old saying there are somethings money can't buy? It's true.Well I hope your move turned out ok you were pretty upset last time you wrote. Take care of yourself. Love, Donna Subject: It's cold in Utah! Received: Mon, 5 Oct 1998 09:31:47 From: (Helen M Naylor) Hello Son! Well, I'm here in Utah and it is cold. I have come here to visit and do die-cuts for my classes in San Diego. I have done about 8 hours of cutting and Lauren (who flew in the day after I got here) has done about the same. She's doing for herself and I am doing for me. What fun! I love your dad more everyday... he is so handsome....(I went to answer the phone and your Dad took and opportunity to write me a message.) It's unbelievable how many die-cuts there are that I haven't done and I want and they are just too cute! I know, hard to believe. But if I came into town and did it for 3 hours a day for 2 weeks, I probably wouldn't get done what I really want to. And Lauren came into town for the opportunity to just do a few hours worth and she feels like it's worth it! Conference has been great. The talks have all been directed to me. Just what I need to hear. Lauren was listening to some of the talks while we did die-cuts and she actually liked some of them. She was listening to President Monson's talk and liked a lot of the things that he was saying+ mom is on the phone again...oh well...why change after all these years...but shes soooo cute anyway...Hello there Jake...Mom's gone away again and left the computer on and I need to use it so I thought I'd just type in this little note to say hello, and ask you why you never write me anything, not even an e-mail, I have some pictures to send so I'll do it this week, talk to ya later, Meg, bye-bye I better not leave this computer again, because every time I leave, someone comes and leaves more messages. I'm not gone for long, but Pat needed to come over and pick up some candles. For heavens sake! Anyway, where was I? Oh well, I'll just have to carry on. I'm having trouble keeping any train of thought. Christie just told me that they were going to split your mission or something. I think the two of you (companions, that is) should just about be ready for that car. That is if you are ready. I hope you don't get in trouble for the Internet thing. Mind those p's and q's. Grandma is trying to decide whether or not she's going to re-do the outside of her house or not. It's a lot of money, but she wants it to be maintenance free. She'll redo the windows and put a vinyl siding on the exterior. Then she'll start on the interior. Probably after Christmas. If she decides to, that is. I'm trying to get her to do some cosmetic things before Christmas. She's getting excited about going to Mexico. She's going down with the dentist again. Then in December she's going to pick up Marian in Germany. But she's probably already told you about all that. It would be nice to be able to travel. I don't see that kind of travel in my near future!!! Well, I know this is short as usual, but I keep getting distracted and interrupted, and the girls are waiting for a turn. If I leave it again, I won't be able to finish, so I'll say good-bye for now. I'm sorry about the shirts not getting sent, but please remind me of the size...I forgot the size!!! I'll get them sent as soon as I get back to San Diego if you E-mail me the size. Oh, oh, Dad has turned on Next to go for sure!!! Hugs and Kisses, Mom P.S. I'll be in Utah until Wednesday morning early, if you want to get a note to me on Juno! Hurray for a computer! Subject: Troubles Received: Sun, 25 Oct 1998 01:10:32 From: (MS NANETTE S ANDERSON) The carpenter I hired to help me restore an old farmhouse had just finished a rough first day on the job. A flat tire made him lose an hour of work, his electric saw quit and now his ancient pickup truck refused to start. While I drove him home, he sat in stony silence. On arriving, he invited me in to meet his family. As we walked toward the front door, he paused briefly at a small tree, touching the tips of the branches with both hands. When opening the door, he underwent an amazing transformation. His tanned face was wreathed in smiles and he hugged his two small children and gave his wife a kiss. Afterward he walked me to the car. We passed the tree and my curiosity got the better of me. I asked him about what I had seen him do earlier. "Oh, that's my trouble tree," he replied. "I know I can't help having troubles on the job, but one thing for sure, troubles don't belong in the house with my wife and the children. So I just hang them up on the tree every night when I come home. Then in the morning I pick them up again. "Funny thing is," he smiled, "when I come out in the morning to pick 'em up, there ain't nearly as many as I remember hanging up the night before." Subject: Ebonics Windows 98 (fwd) Received: Sun, 29 Nov 1998 16:50:00 From: Gabriel Gorog Subject: Fwd: Ebonics Windows 98 Compton City Schools has announced that its special ebonics version of Windows 98, titled "It be a fresh Window" has been leaked to several white suburbs, causing confusion for unsuspecting Caucasian users. There are numerous differences between Windows 98 and the ebonics version. When opening the ebonics version, the familiar Windows chime is replaced with a "phat getto track that melts 'em down wit dope-ass bass." The opening screen features a Windows logo that is spray painted on a brick wall - along with several gangsta signs, slogans and shout outs. On the main screen, My Computer is replaced with "Dis My Shit." The Recycle Bin has been replaced with a Goodwill dumpster, and the Internet Explorer shortcut reads, "Tittie Sites." If users are logged on to a network, the Network Neighborhood is replaced with "Da Hood." Users have their choice of three animated screen savers: "Marquee," a lil' G spray painting dirty words that move across the screen; "Mystify," a 15-year-old crack whore giving birth to 12 children on screen, or "Flying Bullets," a '64 Olds' loaded with gangstas doing a desktop drive by. Users of the ebonics version will notice several command and dialog box changes: Break Back In = Re-entry Aww Shit, Nigga = Error U Betta Recognize = No Itz All Good = OK 4 Real Doe = Yes Hold Up, Dawg = Cancel Do Dat Shit Again = Reset Nigga, R U Crazy = Are You Sure Hunt Dat Bitch Down = Find Put A Cap In It = Delete Games & Shit = Programs Letter Shit = Documents The ebonics version comes standard with a special edition of Microsoft Works titled "Homie Essentials." The word processing program greatly differs from the main-stream program. Several words on the title bar have been changed: Dat be Thang = File I Be Seein' It = View Put Sumpin In = Insert Hook It Up = Format Stuff I Ain't Need = Tools Number Shit = Table Break In = Window What Da |$@*? = Help Note: "Stuff I ain't need" (Tools) does not include spelling or grammar check options. And AutoCorrect has been replaced with keepin' It Real.
