btowns: I'd honestly say it's worse. I need to take time to actually work on getting it to go away. I haven't done that. And I'm in Alberta. Calgary to be specific. We're not too far from each other.

sept: haha. No. At least not that I'm going to admit to..

You really shouldn't let it get out of control. There was this one missionary at my church who had to leave Canada and go home to the US for a while because his eye got so swollen and messed up that he needed surgery for them to cut it open and drain it all out. He has a big scar there right now, but hopefully it will go away. Don't let it happen to you!

I've been to Calgary, my friend's grandpa lives there. I'm in Surrey, about 50 km or so east of Vancouver.

EDIT: Lol, it is a question, do you know where Surrey is?

Yeah, I know where Surrey is. Although, I don't think any of that was a question...

But yeah, I do plan to deal with it. I just need to sit down and watch the hockey game with a warm washcloth on my eye for the evening.

Just curious, what Church?

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. More widely known as the "Mormons". We just had a new temple of ours open up here, which is pretty exciting since there's only 132 worldwide. There's a lot of misconceptions about the Mormons, lot's on the issue of polygamy, which we do not follow at all. Maybe I should make an "Ask anything about Mormons" thread in the christian conservatives, lol

Are you a member of any church or religion?

heh.... yes I am. I'm Mormon too. The comment about the missionary from the US tipped me off. It's rare that churches send missionaries anywhere in North America. More often they send them to 3rd world countries.

And you could make that thread.... but trust me, it's not worth the grief you'll get answering people on all the misconceptions and lies people have heard.

Yeah, that's why I haven't done it so yet. Usually people are convinced they know your religion better than you do, and are just trying to bash you and prove you wrong.

How long have you been a member? Did you serve a mission? If so, where to?

Been a member my whole life. Didn't serve a mission though. Went through a phase around 17-20 where I wanted to live life my own way. That turned out to pretty much suck so I came back to church and got married at 21.

I'm 18 now, and been having a bit of trouble with the wanting to live my own life thing. I know a mission is a once in a life time experience, but everyone just keeps shoving it down my throat and it's really hard to decide a two year commitment like that. I also notice that a common question people always ask is where you went on your mission, and if I was active in the church later and life and someone asked me to give a talk to the young men about how my mission benefited me, that could be a bit difficult or awkward. I don't really know what to do right now

Well, this thread is supposed to be about you. What's your wife's name, and where did you get married?

sept: well, I hope to hit 90. Both my grandfathers hit at least 90 so I figure I've got a good shot at it.

alex: I used to play basketball a lot when I was a teenager. I hurt my ankles pretty good playing and now my right ankle is kinda messed up. I won 4 medals though so I'd say it's worth it

sept: not likely. My life is only going to get more and more busy as my family grows larger. I'll likely slow down a fair bit over the next 6 months.

JTRL: Yes I have lived here my whole life and will likely live here for the rest of my life. I like it well enough. The cold is tough to deal with sometimes but you get used to it.

Well I'm guessing you came to America before? I've never been to Canada but from what I seen on TV and heard from people it is a very good place to live. They are never involved in wars, healthcare is basically free to everyone, crime rates are really low compared to a lot of other places, and most people seem very friendly. Does it ever get hot per se up there in Canada?

JTRL: it has it's moments, but nothing major. We go anywhere from -50F to about 90F depending on the time of year. Very big swing. But it rarely sits at either extreme for very long. Depends on how far north you are too.

Sept: nope. Never. That is something I refused to do. Smoking is so stupid.
