Too much

I still can't decide on whether to be embarrassed or proud...

Saturday, October 29, 2011


“Chit-chat”- This expression for an activity known to normal people as “chillin” or “hanging out” has gradually become the phrase of choice among the hobnobs. David, the resident Steve Jobs of our apartment (RIP), once again has used his foresight to make this term commonplace. The usage of chit-chat is unfortunately not valid outside of Jamestown 35. Whenever I explain to some one that I was up late last night just chit-chatting I get stares that imply that I am sounding like a 60-year-old British grandma. While the name isn’t hip, chit-chatting is what the hobnobs do best, although sometimes to the annoyance of others (just ask Tyler at night). Themes of the apartment chit-chat usually revolve around dating woes and… well that’s about it. Although the topic of chit-chat rarely changes, we just can’t seem to get enough of it. As always, we are more than welcome to additions to the convo so feel free to stop by and indulge yourself in some good old-fashioned chit-chat with the hobnobs anytime!

Tyler's Song of the Week #2

I don't know where Tyler finds his music but if music were food I bet its from McDonalds. Yes, we are really sick of this one. I hate it and yet I find myself singing it under my breath as I walk to class. Hopefully the same thing does not happen to you. Times played in Jamestown 35: 284 and counting. Thanks Tyler.

A common college sight when returning home

How to Bring Down a Giant

I have heard that if you ever fall into a rough encounter with a giant to go for the legs, however, last night they went for the nose and it worked. Tragically at intramural basketball last night Jeff took a blow to the nose by the opponent (we will leave him unnamed due to the death threats he might receive from this post). Unable to stop his layup and slam-dunk they created a scheme to eliminate the MVP. What followed was a night in the ER and a broken nose; we will leave you to guess what happened in surgery and on the flight to the hospital. I know it’s all very tragic, however Jeff is recovering well and will be back on the court next week. Honestly, who hurts the B.F.G?

Ben's Random Thought of the Week: Creepers

Creepers. Who are they? Where do they come from? Do they think what they are doing is socially acceptable? Are there as many as girls claim, or are there just a few serial creepers? These are just a few of the many questions I have about creepers that need to be answered. Although I feel like girls sometimes exaggerate their creeper stories, the facts are simply undeniable: there are creepers among us. While this fact is great for story material, it however has produced a dangerous side effect in the mind of this writer— the possibility that I am a creeper. Am I that guy who girls complain about to their friends? When I said hi to that girl in my class last week, was that creepy? If I tell a girl “nice outfit” am I shamelessly hitting on her? My susceptibility to paranoia has caused me to overanalyze every action I make, constantly evaluating the creepiness of it. To battle this phenomenon, I have taken five effective, yet drastic steps to be the anti-creeper.

1. Don’t say hi to anybody

2. Pretend like you know nobody’s name already, even if Facebook has unwantedly told you

3. If you see a girl outside of class, act like you have never seen her before in your life

4. Never ask a girl out on a date

5. Avoid eye contact with all members of the opposite sex

Although I have now succeeded in my goal of being the anti-creeper, I have now become the biggest social recluse of BYU. Maybe I should just become a creeper…

Profiles of the Hobnobbers: Ben

Hailing from Maryland, Ben brings up the rear in the hobnobs’ dating life as he struggles with developing traits that girls find attractive. Although well-accomplished in economics, Ultimate Frisbee, and guitar hero, Ben is experiencing a minor-league crisis upon realizing that the ladies don’t love anything he stands for. Noticeably skinny, Ben often employs this to his advantage as he avoids being seen as he sneaks out of social events and also dodges people he sort of knows on campus. While Ben is shy at first, asking the right questions such as “is the Lord of the Rings or Star Wars better?” will guarantee you a lively and enlightening conversation with him for the rest of the night.

Profiles of the Hobnobbers: Tyler

Being a man of all seasons, Tyler excels in all fields. Whether it is in volleyball, listening to music loudly, school, or simply being from Southern California, Tyler is the best at what he does. An authority figure on youtube videos, Tyler can now navigate the web with ease while also navigating the kitchen to find some wheatgrass thanks to his newly purchase iphone. Tyler is still undecided about a career path, but rest assured, given his resumé of excellence he will succeed in whatever he does. Watch out as this closet hip-hop dancer will astound you with not just his looks, but his moves.

Profiles of the Hobnobbers: David

The mastermind behind the 4hobnobbers blog, David accounts for roughly 75% of the noise in the apartment (the other 25% is Tyler’s music). His trademark hair continues to defy both natural and testing center laws while his uncanny fashion style has rewarded him with the most dates out of the apartment. While undecided on his major, David has big dreams and is the most likely to be the youngest millionaire out of the hobnobs. David enjoys throwing parties that his roommates try not to attend, being a great guy, claiming he doesn’t like technology while viewing his iphone, and throwing his roommates under the bus through social network mediums.

Profiles of the Hobnobbers: Jeff

At a modest 6”9, Jeff is often stereotyped as “that tall guy” in most wards he attends. However, Jeff has a lot more to offer than his height. Nicknamed “the glue”, Jeff keeps the Hobnobbers in check through his Asian work ethic, Cinderella-like cleaning abilities, and the maturity of a forty-year-old. However, Jeff can have fun when it’s not business-time. This fun-loving guy is known for dominating his opponents in tennis, stunning the ladies with his charm, and simply outclassing the competition in the ward with his swagger. If he’s not engrossed in his mechanical-engineering homework, be sure to check out this red, I mean, auburn-haired stud.

Spiritual Thought of the Week

I don't know how spiritual this is, but around here we love the Killers. So here is one for our man Brandon Flowers. I think Stephen Colbert puts it best about saying, "this campaign makes mormons irresistibly cool."

Jeff's Inspirational Message

No one likes to do dishes, especially when you are busy with homework, girls, and sports. Around Jamestown 35 we sometimes have trouble getting the dishes from the sink into the dish washer. Much similar to Jake Heaps getting the ball into the endzone. Thanks to Jeff we now have a little motivation hanging over the sink to keep our dishes out of the opponents hands. No interceptions here.

If A Unicorn Had A Car This Is What It Would Be

Tyler's Song of the Week

Tyler loves his music more than anyone we know. So here is Tyler's first song of the week. If it does not get stuck in your head at least you can know its stuck in ours.
We Own the Sky
