I Couldn't Help Myself

Ok, I already sent this to quite a few peeps, but, as I lay in my bed this evening I thought, "Rachelle! You selfish, selfish fraud of a christian. You should be sharing this with the world, not just a select few." So, due to my 'revelation' I am sharing with you what I think to be not only the greatest thing that has happened to me since I've moved home (I'm sure this will change on the near Pasta Factory trip), but also a sign of a new age. You think gay marriage is controversial? Well how about ol Colorado City going main stream? Allow me to explain:


A polygamist lady came into our gift shop, while I was not there mind you, and asked us to sell these DVDs on our shelves. This photo, ladies and gentlemen, are what they distributed.
They are DVDs on how to do imitate the infamous polygamist braids. (Sorry about the poor photo quality). Yep, take your pic. You have multiple choices, from the saucy flop, fish tail braid, to the elegant pig-tail-french-twisty sort of braid. I was bawling when I saw this beauty. My employer didn't purchase any to sell. I was appalled. Believe you me, when I saw the flyer, I told him of his drastic error and have thoroughly convinced him that these will sell like hot cakes. We are definitely calling Leann Jessop to bring some of those on by. So, if you're thinking, 'hey, I forgot mothers day.' Or 'what would Sally want for her fifth birthday I wonder...?' Yep, we have the answer folks. For now you may find them at the shop up the street who were business savvy enough to purchase some on the first go-around. Pligs have entered the commercial waters and I'm diving right in to say FINALLY!!

You are such a geek. I always thought you had a little pliggy look to you; you should give that CD a try

It's about time they start selling the secret. Actually when I was little we would go up to the little festival up in Zion and they would offer to braid our hair personally. Now that is what they need to start doing again.

only a true southern utahn would understand. people up here just don't quite understand the plig culture. Chelsea Beecher is actually dang good at those hairstyles. it's one of my favorite parts about her. when we lived together she would do my hair like that for fun on any given night. I'll post a pic so you can see her expertise. she is going to die when she finds out about this. I will start the letter to Brazil breaking the news right now. Thank you for sharing.

Rash, they're entering more than just the main stream. Just answer me this, have you ever been swimming with an entire family of Polygamists? I did just yesterday. An ENTIRE family. Grandma, grandpa, grandma, grandpa, husband, wife, wife, wife, wife, wife, wife, wife, wife, and child X 1,000. And who would have guessed? They swim in their church garb. Dresses, leggings, jeans and shirt, (for the males) the whole shabang.

P.S. I love you.

Rash Bal. This is Lendra. I looked up your blog on the world wide web because now I don't get to see your cute beady eyes and stash every night. I just want to suggest that you leave more personal, intimate and emotional posts on your blog. All who are with me say "aye". (seriously just heard a ton of "aye"'s.)
