To any of you that just got more than two blog updates from me via email--I apologize profusely! My automatic sending program seems to have a glitch or two. I will be calling customer support tomorrow. Thanks for your patience.
Here is what we heard from Missionary #2 this week.
i really look forward to the letters you guys send. They come right on monday night and I get to read them and send you back stuff on tuesday.
I really don't like the MTC keyboards here, the shift button and other buttons are sticky and often don't work. So if I'm missing capitalization, I'm blaming the keyboard. :)
When S goes to the MTC make sure he brings extra gym shorts and shirts and socks. We go to gym every day, and I've had to break down and buy socks and a shirt from the bookstore I'm probably going to break down and buy more gyms shorts too.... It's always overly priced there, which bugs me, but they do give the missionaries a 40% discount so I don't feel so bad when I buy stuff.
Sorry I can't send pictures yet... MTC computers don't let you do that. I think it's kind of silly as that's the main reason I wanted to send emails, but no big deal, I'll make sure to send stuff when I get out in the field. All of the other elders here think that my camera is ridiculously ancient looking. They keep asking if I need to go develop the film. lol. I"ve named the camera Betsy and I won't let them make fun of her anymore, it hurts her feelings.
Oh! Kind of a funny thing i've been wanting to tell you. As the District Leader I'm supposed to go get the mail after lunch and after dinner. The elders in my district have begun to think that i don't get the mail fast enough. Now, towards the end of every meal, they start saying "mail?...Mail? mail? .... Mail?" much like the seagulls from Finding Nemo that say "Mine... mine... mine Mine Mine" We get some pretty great looks when I'm walking toward the mailbox with a flock of elders chanting "mail" behind me.
Everything is going great so far, love you tons!

Here is a picture a friend of mine shared with me--her parents are also at the MTC right now! :)
