lots of things

-I just received some mass e-mail about a "Purpose Driven Worship Festival" or something or other. I wonder what they'll come up w/ next that's "Purpose Driven." Is anyone else sick of hearing that? Sorry Rick Warren, but I think you've maxxed out the commercialization of that phrase. Although, somehow I fear it's not the end of it...probably just the beginning. next up? maybe purpose-driven radio, purpose-driven tv, purpose-driven food, purpose-driven curling irons, purpose-driven gardening tools, who knows.

-I'm packing up my stuff for Colorado and fearing the travel by myself w/ two big suitcases.

-Preparing to teach an elective on Prayer at CIY in Georgia is going to be interesting. #1: I'm not good at teaching. In fact, I pretty much suck at it. #2: I'm definitely not a pro at prayer. Actually, is anyone? I just don't feel qualified to do it. so why did you volunteer yourself to teach the class, mandy, you ask? Maybe b/c I knew it would be stretching myself. It could be good. We'll see. Stay tuned for more thoughts from my teaching preparations.

-I'm hungry.

-It's going to be 97 degrees tomorrow. You can bet money I'll be at the pool for several hours. This time I'll wear a little SPF, b/c I sure didn't last week, and it sure showed.

-I'm very content right now. Looking forward to much, but happy where I'm at. God knows where I need to be each moment, and I'm thankful for it.

-Do you think I can talk my way out of the $25 parking ticket I got last saturday night for parking in front of my apartment between 2-5 a.m.? I'm going to do my best. Tomorrow is the day. my reasoning: someone was parked in my spot in the back, and many people have parked in front w/o ever getting a ticket. so why now? and why choose the girl who has no money? i'll update you on my victory or defeat by the Lincoln Police Dept...specifically Officer #40.

I'm afraid that you won't be able to talk your way out of the ticket. I accumulated 3 different tickets from parking out front there (Two of which were from others borrowing my car and refusing to move it after I warned them). So, it's not just now that they are slapping those bad boys up. They randomly cruise that street and strike down all in the way.

The first time I was ticketed there, two other roommates got them as well. Fortunately for me, the officer forgot the 2 on my ticket and I only owed $5! BAHahaha!

adam--apparently i do!

kunj--thanks! i love you girl! i just left you a monster comment on your latest post.

lindy--yeah i got your comment before i went today. i didn't even try to talk my way out of it, and i just gave into the defeat by officer #40. at least i know i'm not alone in the ticket-getting. that sucks though...seriously, why do the streets need to be clear from 2-5 a.m. when it's not winter and they don't have to be cleaned? dumb. that's all i have to say.

Personally I think it is a poor attempt at raising money for the Abraham Lincoln statue/amusement park.
