Anyway, long boring story of how we got to the topic but I was singing, "My bonnie lies over the ocean, my bonnie lies over the sea...." Lisa, in all her educated wisdom thought that it was "BODY" instead on "BONNIE!" Now I'll give her that probably a lot of people might think that but it is still funny.
oooh, it doesn't take much to entertain me.
You can also find this by going to Google and searching for 2 Chinese students. It's the 2nd listing that comes up.

Well, Lynnae and I are heading to the Farmer's Market tomorrow morning in downtown St. Paul. Then Craig is going to fix my car for free (minus supplies). Then Jeff and I will go buy some wine and make supper for Richard and Lynnae and then we all head to the church to watch Craig's horrible movie. I love these people and God really blessed me with this church community.

I met with my advisor yesterday. The time line is longer than I had hoped but we'll make it work. Next major deadline is Nov. 4, then Nov. 21 for the entire thing and then defend the week of my birthday. Happy Birthday to me. yea.
I'm going to proof Ch. 2-3 tonight so that I can email to my prof tomorrow. Then go to praise band worship, yup, praise band worship. I think I said yes in the fog of my cold. yikes! I can hardly hear myself because I'm so stopped up right now, we'll see how that goes. Then cokes with a few friends and home to bed.
The school is calling me the next 3 days. ick. OK, I'm all about education, but you have to really want it. It's a royal pain in the butt.

I do this a far bit in my life. Not wear diamonds that aren't mine, but not using what I've been given. I'm a saver. I'll save something for a 'special occasion' and then it goes bad. This could be as simple as a box of corn muffin mix having wevils. It could be waiting to say something important about Jesus to someone special until just the right time and missing the 'time' altogether.
Why do we wait? Why not dive in and enjoy the diamonds? Those little (and sometimes big) treasures that God puts in our lives for a season should be well, treasured.
My prayer for those reading is that you will have open eyes to see the treasures that are in your life and jump on them, use them to their fullest joy. Who knows what the Lord might show us and bless us with through that gift?
Wait, the patient has returned. It's time to give back the diamond.

FEB. 28 IS SHROVE TUESDAY AKA PANCAKE DAY! You will find their site under my links. Now that Sarah-Ruby has moved back home, she will be qualified to run in the International Pancake Race again. She's already started training! I'm so proud (and a bit jealous) that I can burst!
I don't know where I'll be in Feb as a whole, but I will guaran-damn-tee ya that I try my hardest to get to L-town for all of the festivities. Yee-haw!
Yea! Went to hockey in the Frozen Tundra and walked a mile back to my car in the rain, but at least I parked for free! Oh, but I did eat a sausage with onions, cheese curds, mini-donuts and a coke. Hey, I shared the curds and donuts! Since the ticket was free it was ok. Kinda like drinking diet pop with a candy bar. It all evens out.
A great big thanks to Lynnae for hookin' me up with the ticket! Hooray!

I'm looking for a job all over, not madly, but I'm ready to move on. Trying to focus on the ol' thesis, but somedays you have to take a break, you know. Looked at jobs with the State of Kasas today. Don't think so. Random things that I think to look up, really.
Boss is on the phone, guess I should actually do work today...

EVERYONE should wear a seatbelt. ALL THE TIME while riding in a vehicle. More people die from NOT wearing their seatbelts than those who do not. Unfortunately it's not always a quick and painless way to meet the Lord, either. But a horrible and terrifying experience for everyone. Where's the good in that I ask?
Also a pet peeve of mine -- people who park in the handicapped space without proper markings (license or sticker or tag or something).
Oh, yea, the TP should come over the top and you should always squeeze from the bottom of the tube of toothpaste, just like the directions say.

It became the rule that everyone who sat at our table had to pose with the flowers. I have more that are still on the roll in my camera and will add them when they're finished. Enjoy the fun! Clint, Miss Kara (can you believe that she's a freshman in high school?) and Mom (can you see where I get it from?)
I went to Colorado last weekend for my cousin Mike's wedding. It was so awesome and I'm so happy for him. Here are a few shots for you to enjoy.
The first shot is of my mom wearing the new pair of sexy shoes that I got and wore to the wedding. They are super fun and have about a 2.5 inch heal. Crazy!
The next one is Aunt Loly and me and I love my Aunt Loly! She is in her 80's and a hoot! It's her grandson, Mike, who got married. Isn't she pretty in pink.
Speak of the devil, the next photo is Mr. Groom himself, Mike. I didn't get a good shot of Kristy, bummer.
The final shot is my dear friend, the Friar, who was willing to hang with my family and carry my purse. (It's a good thing it matched his shoes!)
