Michael Jackson is surrounded by Mormons!

I kid you not. Michael just bought a house in Vegas and he put himself smack dab in the middle of the Palmyra Ward. He is in the ward bounderies for the Kinghams, Eric and Lynita Nelson, and the Harbers! I swear, no joke. At first I thought it was a lie when I heard where he was living...but sure enough, I drove by with Jesse Harber and my friend Layne at like 1o pm last saturday night and I freakin saw him in his Bently with his windows down with his driver (I think he must have been a driver) and they were talkin to the gate guy. It was all lit up so you could totally see it was him. Weird. Anyway, if you're in town, his house is on the corner of Tara and Monte Cristo, the big gated one (look at the link). Two doors down to the north is where the NBA player Gary Payton's house is. I drove by the next morning and there were two pimped out caddies parked outside and the license plate I could read said, "Big J", on it. How weird is it that he's in my aunts' and uncles' ward?! Maybe they can find a way to get him baptized...I hear the nursery and young mens could use some help. Here's some proof for all you skeptics: http://www.usmagazine.com/i_us_i_exclusive_michael_jacksons_new_house

OOOhhhh. I'm gonna have to do the sly driveby this weekend. I'll make sure to sing "No man could eveh dance and a-quiveh".

Little E said...

I wonder if he gives out the big candybars on halloween.

Mandy said...

i wonder that too eric, we should try it this halloween

Tara Maxfield said...

I checked it out on the county's page and the home is listed under the name Burgnara Corp. It is 16,461 square feet and was purchased for 3.8 million. It use to belong to Frank Marino, the female inpersonator here in Las Vegas. Just in case anyone wanted to know! Thanks Ryan, I am going to take a peek next time I am in that area.

Lyd said...

That's freakin' awesome! Yeah, I remember you and Jesse talkin' about that over Christmas break!

Ryan Nelson said...

I guess that Frank Marino guy still owns a bunch of land a couple lots to the north. How appropriate that a female impersonator sold his house to him. Very fitting. I still love M.J.'s music though! Amazing. Just sadly very weird too.

Taylor Oblad said...

Did you know that the chid is not his son?

-KJ said...

Tay, are you making fun of me? And it was, "but the kid is not my son!" I was telling someone about Liza's room mate (I knew that is who it was) and then I totally said that line about the kid and everyone laughed sooo hard. I was dead serious. I'm a loser.

Taylor Oblad said...

No in Billie Jean it appears that M.J. says appears. If I was going to make fun of you I'd ask why Hawaii and Alaska have such different cliamtes when on a map they are so close; or ask how people stand up in the Luxor elevators if they go at an angle. You would then counter by asking me if I had to wear a patch, or if I have ever peed my pants on any ride twice in one day. I would then respond by saying, "Well played my friend" I would subsequently remind you that those mishaps of mine all happened before the age of 6. Your mishaps all happened after the 10th grade. We would then shake hands and call it a draw because you are my favorite female cousin.

Taylor Oblad said...

by the way I did not finish my sentence above. I was going to say that it appears that M.
J. says chid in the song. I had never heard the story about you before.

-KJ said...

I need the words to that song. I just showed you how lame I am! By the way, I NEVER said that about Alaska! That is something Candice would say! Heather V. told me that Alaska was an island though. Sadly, I believed her because I had never really looked for it on a real map! That deserves a good laugh!

Eliza said...

At least you didn't ask why there was a generator up on Y mountain.

Eliza said...

And then have it published in the Daily Herald (with the first name only)

Ryan Nelson said...

Wow, all you guys are so smart. I can only wish to aspire to your excellence. I can't ever remember saying anything dumb in my entire life...but that may be because of my six concussions. Not sure.

Taylor Oblad said...

Ryan you're right. You have never said anything dumb (but let me think about it a little while); you just used to run head on into wall, gates, and poles all the time.

-KJ said...

Ha ha, Tay. Ry, you are like Kev, you just sit there and listen to everyone else say dumb stuff and make fun of them later for it. "I want my mommy (said as you were peeing your pants with a concussion)!" Remember when Brock thought he could make a bomb by putting dirt in a Pepsi bottle and adding a fuse? Genius. Remember when I told Cam how to make a bomb out of Draino and tin foil, and when I came back the next day his mailbox was blown up? Cool.

Eliza said...

I was gonna comment on the pee of the pants but I'm glad you did it cause you are the sista.

Taylor Oblad said...

To come to Ryan's defense on the peeing the pants, he had a 230 lb extremly handsome man land directly on his head. Plus the only cushion between Uncle Richard and Ryan's head was a quarter inch thick layer of carpet and cement. Richard was scary back then wasn't he? I bet that whole concussion thing made Ryan even more scared of Uncle Ricardo. Wait, was it Richard that landed on Ryan's head or was it Ryan VanLeuwen? If it was Ryan scrath that extremely handsome part. His Utah accent is deafening. The only other thing I can remember about that day was playig Rush n' Attack onnintendo in the Young Women's room.

Ryan Nelson said...

I DO dumb things... I just don't say them.

Taylor Oblad said...

I really should not make fun of other's grammar or spelling because mine really sucks ankle. From now on I will only make fun of people where it is warranted, and I will decide if it is warrented or not. Thank You.

Ryan Nelson said...

Ya, it was Ryan VanDerBeekLuewen. And the only thing I remember after that was the nurse telling me that I couldn't take a nap like I wanted to so bad, cause if I did, I probably wouldn't wake up again. That was one scary nurse.

Taylor Oblad said...

Ryan that wasn't even dumb. You cried and peed your pants after being smashed by a grown man. Remember you were only like 7-8 years old.

Ryan Nelson said...

Thanks Tay. I did catch that damn ball as I recall. Then I peed my pants from the excitement...ya, thats it.

-KJ said...

For some reason, I have a weird feeling that Nola will find a way to become friends with M.J. She will take him "welcome to the neighborhood" cookies and a ward list or something. She is a nice lady. I think Uncle E. will end up having some crazy story about him at the next family party. Right! I swear they always have crazy stories like that!

-KJ said...

Sorry Ry, you were the hero that Thanksgiving. I just had to think of something to make myself feel better. Remember how mad Rich was at Ryan V.! Ha ha! I think Ry is still scared of him.

Alli Fantastico said...

Notice how I didn't comment til the end because I have nothing to remark in jest of my dear family members. I would never ever tease one of you, not ever.

-KJ said...

Yackity schmackity bla bla bla!

Eliza said...

I still have that slow rising moan carved into my brain. It was sooo scary. Although scary I can't stop laughing about this whole post!

-KJ said...

Poor Ry!

-KJ said...

Did you see that joke on Conan? "Michael Jackson was asked if he would make an appearance on American Idol, he said no, but he said he would be appearing on How to Catch a Predator." Ha ha. I love Conan!

Ryan Nelson said...

Haaa! That is funny. I was watching the Sopranos of South Park at the time...both inappropriate, yet funny. Editted too to an extent.

Little E said...

Ryan's never said anything dumb before? I recall him trying to tell on me to grandma by saying "Bamma, Ehwick's in big fubbu, he's fymin in da fee." You could argue that he was only like 3 years old, but when asked directly if he was retarted by Dad after peeing in moms mortis and pestle he promptly replied, "yes". I would have said he only said that out of fear if it weren't for the fact that when dad told him to dump it out he quickly dumped in on the floor.

Little E said...

It's remembering moments like those that I can't wait to have kids. I'm gonna have a camcorder surgically installed in one of my eyeballs so I never miss that stuff.

Taylor Oblad said...

You mean mortis and "Piss"tle.

Ryan Nelson said...

Again, I may do dumb things, I don't say em (Or I don't get caught at least). And talking like Buckwheat is endearing, not dumb. Peeing downstairs in that thing was way dumb, but hilarious now. I thought I was dead for sure when Dad caught me doing that. But the bathroom was all the way up those thirteen stairs, and that just seemed too far when I had a perfectly good mortis and "piss"tle to wizz in.

Alli Fantastico said...

hahahaha, oh man. I just laughed so hard at that story you told E, and ryan's response, priceless. Although, I'd agree those 13 damn steps up to the bathroom were like Everest...who freakin designed that steep cliff of a staircase anyway, a monkey?

Little E said...

I don't know why y'all think those stairs take so long to travel, I saw mom go down em on her butt in 3 seconds flat; even with her red fingernails leaving traction marks on the staircase walls to vainly slow her down. It was like a dragster with a broken parachute. Poor lady put "Bucko" to shame!

Ryan Nelson said...

And she left a hole in the wall to go along with it! I guess her foot didn't slow her diwn either. That Buckin' Bronco thing was the best...until Bo peed on it.

Taylor Oblad said...

Buck-O I want to go as fast as a speeding bullet!!

Eliza said...

I have such fond memories of the sleeping bags! We mad our own little Alpine Slide! Remember the obstacle courses (or where they haunted houses- whatever) we would make in the piano room? Great minds at work there!

Taylor Oblad said...

Eric was the guide on the Haunted House tour. He would wear that mask that looked like an old guy with a cigar hanging from his lip. Ryan would be a vampire and say,"Boo!!! Did I scare you?" Grapes as eye-balls, and spaghetti for brains. Also we would make carnivals in the piano room with fun little games and the Driscoll and Lund children would huddle around the piano room window as if they were poor London children looking into the window of a mansion during Chritmas wanting to come in and partake of the funness. I remember we stuffed a lot pencils and pens into the foam sleeping pad, as if it were Plinko, and drop batteries down it for prizes. Hey kissy I bet you can't kick the top of that punching bag?

-KJ said...

Hahaha! I can, but only if I get to flop around the floor like a fish out of water! Remember how long that baby doll hung from a nuse in our basement? Forevah! It was Dad's foot that put a hole in the wall down the stairs! Yayayayayayayayaya! That is the sound we made going down the stairs!

Lyd said...

Kj, you beat me to it. It was dad. He was unloading the car of Costco goods and he slid down the freakin' stairs, of course not all of them, hence the hole! Something that could have helped you guys to go up those 13 stair, when I was little, I used to run up them on all fours. It made it feel as if I was zooming to the top! I know, that was something stupid, so shut the freak up.
