Guess who was the bathroom trailer attendant in the Temple parking lot last night?

Yep. And Jake, too. And we also got a turn making sure nobody snatched the baby Jesus from the life-sized nativity. He's been pilfered before. Three times, according to Mr. Security.

And last week a lady in a trench coat jumped into the creche and opened her coat to pose for nudie pics with the babe in the straw.

People are weird.

The High Council voted to take 'host' duty at the Temple instead of a having a meeting this week. It was pretty fun, if a bit cold. There were cinnamon rolls and hot chocolate and lots of lights.

Really good cinnamon rolls.

In other news:

Is anyone else waking up at night in a cold sweat because she forgot to pick up assembled toys at Toys r Us?

Yeah, me neither.

So I guess it's just my Mom.

She waited til morn, and called me to see if I actually had forgotten.

I had.

I keep forgetting stuff.

I'm not organized enough for Christmas.

Please don't make me go to Wal-Mart this morning.

Oooo, lucky you! Sounds like a fantastically eventful Christmas display!

Don't go to Wal-Mart.

We would never have such wanton displays here at our temple! Oh, wait, we had all those protestors just last month, angry mobs and shouting--it was pretty ugly. (So much for my temple superiority.)

Nudie pictures at a nativity? It's true---people are weird. Really weird.

In other news-I want some cinnamon rolls now.

Claire said...

i'd do anything for cinnamon rolls. seriously. Anything.

Who wants to be naked in straw? Sick. Let's go to lunch when I'm in AZ after Christmas...

I am forgetting all kinds of things, too, because of CHRISTMAS. VT appt., feed the kids dinner, dye my hair......there's just too much to do. Guess I'll just count my blessings that I didn't have to potentially see a naked woman pose with Baby Jesus.

Scar me for life.

Nothing like nativity duty to keep you on your toes! At Christmas my brain goes on Post It. (Love those things. Every mom's best friend, IMO)

Wow - never knew about the nudies out there obsessed with nativities. Glad you could keep things in check!

Ashley said...

Wow, a bathroom trailer attendant? Didn't know they had those there! I love the lights at Temple Square, I miss them!

A bathroom trailor attendant??? Did you hand out paper towels? Did people tip you? Once upon a time there were just port-o-pottys, then they stepped it up to these bathroom trailers, now they are adding bathroom attendants!? What a high class church we've become!

Bathroom attendant? Pure class. Well, I guess since it was for the Lord, it's all good.

I always knew Arizona was full of free lovin', nude hippies!

I'm pretty sure that stealing baby Jesus or posing nude in the nativity are both going to get you into some major trouble someday. And totally imppressive that you got to be a bathroom attendant and a bouncer for the nativity. Our ward just got to help with lights, we never get the fun jobs.

I went to walmart on Saturday evening, and it was so not worth it. I say, if you find yourself needing to go there, make sure to put on your pj's and some slippers, otherwise you will be overdressed. Oh, and make sure to wear one of those bright orange vests in the parking lot - I nearly got run down by a crazed mom in a suburban who was possibly beating her children while driving 40 in the parking lot and talking on her cell phone.

Renae said...

Oh, sorry Shireen. That was probably me in the Walmart parking lot. ;) Not really, I'll only beat my children in our minivan. They're too hard to reach in a burb.
I am jealous of the potty attendant job. I've always wanted to do that. Last year I ran into hubby's ex in the pottys. Who knows who I'd have seen this year!

Lizzie said...

so as the bathroom attendant, did you have to flush the unflushed toilets....because at the temple, if you did that and it overflowed, I don't think the lady next to you would pull out a gun and shoot you :) ha ha
