I am having trouble coming up with even one reason, so was hoping for a little help here.

Runtu?


All the Best!

LOL!

Based on your posting habits at MAD, I'm convinced you have a massochistic death wish.

What would a non-masochistic death wish look like? ;^)

A quick, painless death wish, I imagine.

10. A reprieve from the hostilities of MD
9. Perfect opportunity for taking a Saturday afternoon nap.
8. Taking my 12 year old to Priesthood session for his first time so he can be exposed to the terrible calamity that is pornography in the Church.
7. Skipping church for a week, baby.
6. Spending time on my knees wrastling the kids.
5. Doing some form of a chore with my father-in-law while he has ear plugs in listening to conference--I enjoy not having to interact with him sometimes.
4. Seeing how conference gets beat out by the programs before, after, inbetween the sessions.
3. Its still march madness this weekend. When the choir sings, or the busienss is being done, I can switch it to check up on the game[s]
2. crying.
1. Cynically trying to figure out ways to catch the brethren and sisters in their words so I can report back on MD about how foolish he/she is.

It's much less embarrassing to fall asleep watching conference on your couch than to fall asleep in sacrament meeting. Also, more comfortable. Also, you can do it in your underwear.

I look forward to hearing what President Packer might say just for the cringe factor and to be able to compare what he says to how it gets written in the Ensign.

It gives us an opportunity to be thankful for the moisture.

10. Another opportunity to hear some Edgar Guest poetry and a "passive triplet" or two.
9. No one cares if you sleep through the meeting.
8. I can't go six months without having Richard G. Scott stare soulfully into the camera and plead with us for something.
7. Dieter Uchtdorf's tan is awesome.
6. Between sessions, they'll be showing "Laser Floyd" in the conference center.
5. I'm brimming with anticipation over what color of dark, conservative suits the GAs will be wearing this year.
4. When the camera scans the congregation, it's always fun to count the sleepers.
3. If you notice, President Eyring wears a different pair of glasses for each session, a la Randy Jackson.
2. I have a swig of beer every time someone says, "even."
1. Is this the year something interesting will be said from the pulpit?

What was I thinking doing a top ten before Runtu? Better than after him I guess. I feel pwn3d, or oops...I wasn't supposed to use that term anymore according to someone here. Oh well.

Surely, someone has developed a GC drinking game?

Using Runtu's rules, you would be sloshed by the end of the first talk! ;-)

We could arrange a time to be in chat together for a paticular talk (I suggest Packers.) Make up a list of words that he may use (Runtu's job cause he is good at it) and then lotto assign the words to each participant. When he says on of your words you get to take a drink.

I think if we include the right words by the end of the talk we might even be enjoying the talk.

I think my 10, 8, and 1 beat out any of yours, but I'm not so foolish as to think anyone's going to agree.

Cute list, Stem!

I may just take you off ignore! LOL

Seriously, I related to a lot of these.

I got a 20% off coupon for P.F. Chang's takeout this weekend! Since I get paid tomorrow, we're taking advantage. We'll order P.F. Chang's and eat it during conference! ;-)

I like your list, particularly the one about the father in law and the earplugs. Made me smile.

I'm going to be doing some spring cleaning this weekend and making a trip or two to the landfill. I'm sure someone will fill me in about how conference went. I do miss our stake "bleed and feed" that we used to do in Texas, but then I am not allowed to give blood anymore.
