DAVID ARCHULETA

This Guy Here.

I have been missing him. Especially when just yesterday, I came across an envelope from the past I’d forgotten I even had. It contained several bookmarks made by a fan from the year 2010. Each bookmark was a monthly calendar with a tweet from David. I don’t recall who made them, but there was a note from Abrra with the words, “You can trim the rest – Enjoy!” Here they are, in all their grand random gloriousness.

January @DavidArchie I say “Hi I’m lost I just need to turn around.” Guy says, “David Archuleta is lost?” Should that really be surprising?”

February @DavidArchie “Are you who I think you are?” I say maybe… “Ricky Archuleta. You’re Ricky Archuleta, right?” I say no sorry. She walks off lol.

March @DavidArchie I can’t fall asleep. Still not used to the time change I guess. So I decided to handwash a shirt. :) It makes you appreciate it.

April @DavidArchie My left eye’s red again. That little stinker.

May @DavidArchie Bah! Bad internet connections! I have a blog to get up internet! Work with me here please! @DavidArchie Kinda awkward but I found a good connection in front of someone else’s door!

June @DavidArchie Yeah so idk about having 40 different shirts heh.. How about 2 weeks worth? At least it’s not the shiny suit every night again. hahaha

July @DavidArchie Lady comes up to me and says, “excuse me, but has anyone told you you look a lot like David Archuleta?” I say oh a few times. Haha

August @DavidArchie Oh man, I’m not handling hot salsa as well as I thought I was going to.

September @DavidArchie bah, cursed catchy melody ideas in my head that don’t stay long enough for me to get them out! Why can’t they stick around a bit more?

October @DavidArchie Oh my heck, there are cats outside fighting and they’re really loud! Hush cats people are trying to sleep! You shouldn’t fight anyway.

November @DavidArchie Wow that was one useless piece of information. What has twitter done to me? Lol.

December @DavidArchie Well now I have something from 12 years ago on my to-do list. Make homemade green eggs and ham.


Don’t get me wrong, I love the man he brought back.  I’m just glad to see this guy here came back with him.

    OMG I remember every one of those tweets!
    That pic – maybe he should grow a moustache. LOL
    Am I the only one admiring those eyelashes and eyebrows?
    And welcome back, funny, random David! Love ya!

  2. jans11 said

    Yep…I’ve got those bookmarks too and I use them all the time! :) He is so hipster..haha. Love his sense of humor and yes, Fenfen, those eyelashes are the 1st thing I noticed…after the mustache….yea Mr. Charley Chaplin!!!! :)

  3. Abrra said

    I think MissBianca made the bookmarks? I was able to download and print them from her site? I just can’t recall for sure. They made a nice companion for reading Chords of Strength.

    Fenfan, I noticed :)

    Dear DA

    Nah. I don’t think you would pass the test. My sons like “No shave November” and “Mustache March”. Maybe by then if you are ready to go big time. Latinos are serious about their facial hair. ^_^

  5. bluesky4home said

    I will accept the longer hair up top for now. Yes, I have noticed (as have we all). Just trying to keep it on the DL since you always notice our noticing. We will pretend not to be interested….sort of.

  6. fenfan said

    I am not noticing the hair at all, longer or otherwise. I am not looking anywhere above the eyebrows so as to avoid noticing anything at the top of his head. Not even glancing to the side to take any notice of what’s next to the ear.
    i think all the hairdressers in Utah should go on holiday to take advantage of the last days of summer.

  7. all you need is a cool fedora, then you will absolutely be hipster

    Oh David did waiter notice hahaha. He is so straight faced!!!

    David is one handsome dude, eyebrows and all.

    Angelica, “Don’t get me wrong, I love the man he brought back. I’m just glad to see this guy here came back with him.”

    This is like my little grandson coming to me in his camouflage clothes and telling me that I can’t see him because he is in his camos. ;) Nope David, I doubt the waitress noticed. I’m thinking she probably saw those eyebrows and eyelashes AND that infamous smile and you were so busted!!

    shhhh bluesky, don’t say anything about his hair being a tad longer!! :)

  11. Gayle122890 said

    Happy Left-Handers Day to my favorite Leftie! :)

  12. bebereader said

    His tweets were so comical! Laughed as I read. He’s got that tongue in cheek dry wit. And I’m almost sure he’s mocking us with “Am I hipster enough now?” as in “I know you don’t like my hair.” haha Oops I mentioned his hair. Sorry, Fen and bluesky.

    He came back from his mission very mature but there are still remnants of the old days. I don’t think they will ever go away. Heck, I still like to play skeeball at the quarter machines and win silly prizes.

    So David was in a Vietnamese restaurant. He’s adventurous with food.
    Wonder what he ate?

  13. I wonder when all of the concert sightings, restaurant sightings, visits to LA and back, instagrams and funny hashtags will turn finally after years of absence into the real gift of a beautiful voice singing to the people?

    SB

  14. Because there was no sunshine in the world of music that we knew when he was gone…

  15. To add to that, I would give up reading his tweets, knowing who he just smiled at, knowing what he thought of his last meal, feeling happy he visited his sisters, reading about where he plans to be in September, reading about what recording studio he spent time in…all of that any anything more forever, in exchange for watching him come out on stage, his stage, during a thunderous applause.

    I still laugh everytime I see the tweet about Ricky Archuleta. I’ve thought for a while now that he would be great playing the part of Ricky Ricardo in a remake of I Love Lucy. He could really belt out Babaloo. Not sure if I spelled that right. But, you know what I mean. Especially now that his Spanish is up to par, and I’m sure he can speak English with a convincing accent. Now if we can just find a Lucy to go with it.

    Lynne

  17. bebereader said

    Good Morning!

    Lynella,

    David as Ricky Ricardo would be hilarious! I bet he can pull it off, too!

    SandyBeaches,

    I hear you. We’ve been waiting for so long. What keeps me going is that I know it will be worth the wait.

    I woke up way too early this morning but found this little gem on Twitter so I guess it was worth it.
    From David’s “Star Search” days, David and two other contestants.

    Up early over here as well!
    Bebe, “And I’m almost sure he’s mocking us with “Am I hipster enough now?”
    Yep, first thing I thought lol.
    I’m still not sure I know the guy he has brought back, but I like the little that I see.
    Beholden to no one. I hope he’s writing about that very thing.
    He’ll sing to us when he’s ready.

    4. It is an Argentine video. It is true, men with mustaches they feel more males hahahaha. Now you have an idea as I speak.

  20. bluesky4home said

    Gladys ^_^ I hoped you would see that video!

    One of my sons served in the Dominican Republic and one in Spain. They both think this video is hilarious. They love it and they love growing the “mustache” once a year.

  21. cc halo said

    I don’t know if it’s been mentioned that the shoulder bag is also a major hipster accessory. I think he’s going all out in pursuit of that look, ha ha.

  22. djafan said

    Hello Gladys! Hope you’re having tons of fun!!!

    I didn’t get up early lol

    Cc Halo, Oh a shoulder bag…I’ve noticed that he wasn’t carrying a backpack. I think you’re right lol I wonder what hipster hair styles look like?? Be back..

  23. djafan said

    He tweets!

    @DavidArchie @pieology. I’d recognize that wall anywhere.

    There is a Pieology in Utah. Pizza Bar. I need to try this :)

    2014 hipster mens hairstyles. There are several I’d like David to try!

  26. cc halo said

    Lol. Djafan, I’m with you on hoping David would try out the different hipster hairstyles!

    It looks like they phased out backpacks in favor of shoulder bags during his mission, so he apparently already had a leg up on that one.

    I think that the pizza boxes on the bench in his Irvine Spectrum, Southern California pictures are from pieology–a place near me!

  27. djafan said

    Cc Halo, I didn’t notice the boxes lol I usually don’t notice anything else in a picture where David is involved haha.

    David last night at Moochies. Go to instagram link to see great picture.

    If nothing else comes of all this, I hope at least it answers his old question: “Will they remember me?”
    From SLC, to LA, from LA to SA, from Afghanistan to anywhere….

    Really, DA? Are you remembered? Are you loved? Yea, no privacy is the pits. But on the other hand, if this is your calling, can you have a greater witness than that the voice you call us with still reverberates in the hearts of millions: “No Matter How Far”.

  29. lynnella said

    #28, Bluesky

    Excellent comment. Another question might be, could we ever forget him. Not on your life. Once you’re hooked, it’s for good. He could retire from singing completely (Heaven forbid) and we’d still be listening to his CDs, watching videos on youtube and searching google, twitter, facebook and any other means of information, looking for any scrap of hope that he’s going to sing again. And, it doesn’t matter what he sings. I’ll listen to anything and be grateful. If he wants to sing nothing but hymns from now on, that’s fine with me. I happen to love hymns, but even if I didn’t, hearing him sing them is a spiritual experience for anyone. Yep, we’re goners.

    Lynne

  30. bebereader said

    I agree with you bluesky and lynella. “Once you’re hooked, it’s for good.”

    And yet another restaurant tweeted about David tonight.
    I’m so glad he’s enjoying himself. I know how he loves to eat! #foodie

    @DavidArchie @bumblebzBBQ. I heard you stopped by and we didn’t have ice cream. We wanted to invite u back and your group #mealonus #4free

    Bumblebee’s BBQ ‏@bumblebzBBQ 24m
    @DavidArchie @bumblebzBBQ we wanted to also extend an invitation to your grandparents. We know them personally. They are such sweet people!

  31. djafan said

    Ice cream at a Bbq place? It sure is a nice offer :)

    Interesting tweets. Kari doesn’t usually tweet this kind of tweet only when its David related. Soooo I am really really excited.

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour 52s
    Just knowing what is around the “corner” gets me so excited!

    And

    @kurtbestor: Getting caught up on emails, music invoicing, and Christmas Show planning isn’t so bad when this is my… http://t.co/6q9SPZB3CN

    Could this possibly be related to David?

    Bluesky, I know David is known but these last couple of months prove he is “very well” known worldwide. He is unforgettable.

    Lynnella, anything David wants to do I’m so there. Maybe just around the corner!

  32. bluesky4home said

    If she IS referencing DA then, “Just around the corner..” might, almost, sort of possibly be (as in MKOP) girl related, wedding related…. (ha, ha. Well, I am pretty sure it is “ha, ha!”)

    OR that he has entered the beginning of “His Kind Of Perfect” concert, venue, music, band, lyrics, sound, genre, management, studio, tour – ????

    (I won’t include “audience” in that list: we ARE the perfect audience. ((^_^)) Just sayin’)

    With Kari’s excitement over what’s “right around the corner” and Kurt’s Christmas show planning, it sounds like they might be talking about David! Hope so. I could stand for a little David excitement! :) And Christmas is “right around the corner! :) Dear God, please let it be about a David Archuleta Christmas concert!!!!!!!! I am more than ready to hear that VOICE live again!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    On a side note, this past week, I ended up cutting 4 Elder’s hair! I guess the word got out! haha. :) It was great, they all are so nice and appreciative!

  35. Dayzee said

    Jan, I loved to read you were taking care of the elders. You are such a sweetie. The Helen Keller quote is truly true. Your life must be very happy

    An “older’ picture turned up. Dreams DO come true :) This was the same night he met up with Brooke. That was one busy hotel!

    Tonight at dinner I explained to my whole table how I’ve always loved David Archuleta and if he could just meet me I was sure we’d fall in love. When I came out of dinner he was sitting in the lobby. 😳😍 Not so sure he felt the sparks fly but boy did he make me a happy girl:) #truelove #musicalbabies #weddingin2015 #happyday

    Mucho gracias Dayzee! Helen Keller’s quote is so true! It does my heart good to do things for others. And these boys truly need a happy heart around them. ♥
