TV and running and the world

I'm typing this in purple and I'm not sure why...I don't really love purple, but I've gotta keep it different all the time.

Anyway, this is my update since my last grumpy mood post.

This week has been blah for me, but my thoughts on TV shows, going for walks/some running, and thinking about the world has kept me busy.

For starters, in the TV world my Wednesday nights will now be empty. So You Think You Can Dance ended last night with a nice finale of routines from this season, and I really didn't care who won. I was pleased with the turnout, though indifferent. I kinda knew all along Benji would win...but secretly sorta hoped it would be Travis, but either way I'm 100% happy for either one. And I'm sad that the tickets for the tour are SOLD OUT everywhere! ;-(

On the walking/running note, I have done this 3 nights out of the past 4. I'm quite proud of myself. I don't normally do this, but I love to when it's nice out. I've been walking and starting to run a little bit, and tonight I ran a whole MILE! This is unbelievable for me considering I usually can't make it from the door of a building to my car without being completely unable to breathe or bored out of my mind. I'm thankful for my handy pink SLVR phone w/ music kept me occupied and I actually enjoyed it! (shh...)

On thinking about the world...this will deserve another post sometime soon, but there's a lot going on in my head lately about Africa and poverty and AIDS and hunger and the needs around the world and America's selfishness and my money and America's money and just our attention and God's heart for the world. If you haven't done so yet, you NEED to buy or at least look at the book Hope in the Dark with writer Jena Lee's words and Jeremy Cowart's amazing photography. It's their journey in Africa depicted through colorful words and vivid images that actually capture the humanity of Africans...down to the texture of their rough but beautiful skin. It changed my world the other day. You should at least check it out next time you're in Borders or Barnes & Noble.

You should really be on tv talking about these tv shows. I like how you write about it, it is like you talk with these people everyday, I feel like I have been watching every episode with you.
