i do not have time...

...for making challah bread. nor do i have my own kitchen.
...for homework
...for sleeping
...for losing my phone and having to look all over creation for it
...for blogging.

i'll be back, i promise, soon. don't worry. just wait.

Jewish Holidays

...mean no challah bread for communion. oh, the sadness! we have to have a different kind of bread. I love challah, though. oy.
we're trying a new wine this week, too...the one from last week was really not good. ughh.

I have to go to church tomorrow and discover whether anything has fallen off the wall, and to hang the last thing. This is very exciting. please be excited.

now i am going to read for theology. goodbye.

i have an office...


i have an office at the church. i rearranged the furniture yesterday, and today i'm going out to do some minor shopping for things i need in there--like something to go on the wall, some cleaning supplies, water, etc. the usual, really.

i wore a robe when leading worship yesterday. and a stole. i looked like a real-life pastor. it was kind of scary, but then it wasn't anymore. I've decided it's only weird if i'm walking around NOT in church. and then, really, anyone would look strange--even an ordained pastor.
see, Calvin, you aren't always right.

just saying...

it was fab. and there's a site where you can find out your Les Mis character! aah, who doesn't love cheesy personality tests?

I'm Jean Valjean!

(No, really.) Some people may see me as a little sanctimonious, but though I care deeply about doing right, I'm not above a little skulduggery in a good cause. Being in touch with my spiritual side doesn't make me an easy target... on the contrary, in fact.

Which Les Miserables Character Are You?

Wednesday, September 17, 2003


I am going to see Les Mis tonight, with Amy and Noell, courtesy of someone at Noell's church and Amy's generosity (though I told her not to do it, she did, and I still love her.) :-)

...done any homework yet.

...picked up rocks for monday's chapel.

...been off campus.

...drunk 8 glasses of water.

...done any exercise.

...written any useful emails (except one just now, i guess).

...watched any tv (this might have to change now, actually).

...done anything productive whatsoever.

it's friday. and the last post was on tuesday. i'm a slacker. what has been going on?

well...jenny my college roommate is getting married. classes are going. the internship hasn't started. i've been tired. the "fish" is living in my room (amy's allergic to her) and she (the fish) likes to wake me up by biting my 7am. which would be ok if i needed to get up then, but i don't. and it would be ok if she didn't do it when i was trying to go to sleep too, but she does.

so what exactly is it about me that is so tasty to animals? Ollie likes to bite my arm and hand. mosquitoes bite me every time they come near. i probably get bitten by spiders in my sleep. I forever have random bug bites on my arms and legs, and sometimes my back. do i understand? no. i've learned that mosquitoes are attracted to blue, and that bananas (even after you eat them...something about the vitamins and your blood..) attract them too... well, i don't eat bananas (they're nasty), but almost my whole wardrobe is blue. hmm. but that doesn't explain the cat and her attraction to my skin. explain!

there was supposed to be yoga tonight but the yard sale is currently in the living room (it is tomorrow morning) so i don't know how yoga can happen. hmm.

i think i should go home soon, play with my fish, and go to bed early so i can get up and help noell. oh..yay...

there was a lovely post to go here, i promise.

unfortunately, it disappeared. i do apologize. perhaps another time.

brown water and roaches. ugh.

the south--oy.

in other news, school has started, i only have two classes and an internship (until the second half, anyway)...theology is going to be a lot of reading but should be a good class (shirley guthrie is teaching with george stroup this year). exegesis is something to get through, i think...but interning will be a good experience. yippee.

amy and i are nearly halfway through our 11-week healthy plan, and it's going really well. woohoo!

umm...roaches are nasty.

that's all for now.

aaah, school

that's all, really. it starts tomorrow and there are several things i need to do before my first class, like locate the notebook i bought for this semester, and get a binder ready, etc. oy. i need to go to bed. goodnight...

one more day

...until classes start. today i dropped and added (classes), went to chapel, and ate in the 'tory. oh boy.
and i'm too good at greek. huh.

just fyi: i changed my phone number. if any of you (who may or may not be reading this) normally have my phone number....well, email me for the new one. it's a chicago number. yes, i still live in atlanta. it's a money and convenience issue...

anyway, that's all now. buh-bye.
