It's 2007, I guess I should post again.

It's been nearly 6 mo since I last posted, so sorry everybody. Jessica and myself are doing great. There's nothing new to report in our marriage except that we are still doing well and give marraige two thumbs up.
The holiday's were wonderful. It was great to see all the friends and family from out of town. It was so great to see people from TN, FL and TX.
Oh, I'm officially done with WKU since I got my degree in the mail this past week. So now, even if they call me and tell me I have to take some lame 100 level course to graduate: not gonna do it, already got the diploma.
I wish everyone who has a new job, new wife, or new gym good luck this year. Oh, and in 2007, I want to post more often, so wish me luck. Have a great day everyone!

    A note for Adam: a good friend of ours down here collects comic books. He has the Fantastic Four Issue #1...signed by Stan Lee. He sold it on Ebay for $4000. I thought of you Shumake brothas.

Hmmm...

So I am entirely too busy to worry myself with the vanities of pleonast, yet I find myself strangely drawn into this skewed world of white font and black background.

Everything has been really good lately. We just got back from vacation, and if you want a good synopsis of it: here.

And for all of you people who are not in school and have the summer off...I envy you. I now know why school is not year round. Because if it was, everyone would kill themselves after a year. (Yes, it is that extreme a situation.) In may I had toxicology. Right now I am doing actual laboratory work with some fungus for credit. And in 3 weeks I start a 5 wk chemistry course. Please, someone make the pain that is WKU go away.

In other news, we are consolidating our student loans...if you are in school, or will be graduating soon, you should be doing this!!! The deadline is june 30th!! This can literally save you thousands of dollars. Do it.

I miss tons of people, and if you are reading this, then you are one of them. I hope you all have a great day. I'm going to go study some more.

  • staci
    I did it! I'm not quite sure how much I saved. After consolidation and taking the shortest payback time period we save $3000. I can only imagine what it would have been before!

Not much to tell

I really just wanted to get the last post off.

I hope everyone is doing well. I had a great weekend with my family. Tons of stuff has been going on here in BG with us. Very busy. I will post when I don't have at least 3 other things for school I should be doing.

Have a wonderfully blessed day, and don't forget to kiss your mom when you see her! Peace!

Cows in Shining Armor

This year's chick-fil-a calender is definitely sub-par. There is nothing in there for free. It is filled with things like Buy 1000 large diet lemondaes and get 1/2 off a chicken bisciut. Who has time for these shananigans. Silly chick-fil-a.

This week has been somewhat to thoroughly stressful. One large test, two quizzes, and a professional paper on hemolysis of sheep erythrocytes (sheep blood bursting in hot water). All in all a good week though, mainly because of my wife. I am constantly amazed at how wonderful she can be to me. I am a truly blessed man.

I met 4 mormon elders at wed. night Bible class this week. They were sitting on the back row alone( with suits and back-packs), so I introduced myself. The first gentleman introduced himself as Elder Smith, so I thought that Elder was his first name. Wrong...the next three gentlemen then introduced themselves as Elder SoandSo, and so on down the line. Not only did I feel stupid for thinking the guys name was Elder, but then after I met them all I couldn't think of anything to say because I was thinking "I can't believe I thought the guys name was 'Elder'", so we enjoyed a brief moment of awkward silence before I recovered. All in all- I'll do better next time.

That's all from me, but I hope everyone is doing well and that you all are trying to do your best to focus on what you can do for all of those around you.
  • curtisamy
    when we were in BG, we got to know some mormon "elders". when they are on their missionaries that is their name, they aren't allowed to introduce themselves with their real names. It's weird. After getting to know them for a couple of weeks, we were able to get them to tell us their real first names. They were reluctant though.

    Your elder story is funny man. I would have done the same thing. Good day.
    by dirk at 02/24/06 8:22AM
  • blackaby
    I would have done the exact same thing. With all the names out there you never what it could be. My mom's maiden name was Elder and my dad is now an elder at the church we attend. So we've told people, "yeah my mom used to be an elder, and now she's the wife of an elder" They look very confused.

  • bombadil
    You are so funny!
    by bombadil at 02/24/06 4:17PM
  • entheos
    great story - glad you reached out to them. You just gotta wonder if they secretly think it sounds funny to say Hi, I'm elder soandso, I'm elder soandso, I'm elder soandso and I'm elder soandso. I mean it is a little like Larry Daryl and Daryl. This is why I am glad most Christians don't introduce themselves to visitors like "hi, i'm brother soandso and this is brother soandso etc..." First names were used in the Bible. That's good enough for me!

    I don't have a chick-fl-a calendar this year because, much to my chagrin, there are very few chick-fil-as in Irvine, CA. This needs to change, and apparently the calendar does too.

Ok here goes

So I said I'd do it, and here it is: My weird,quirky self broadcasted for the world to enjoy.

1. It may seem like I'm stealing this from him, but it is the truth. When I hear the words puberty and panties it gives me the chills. I simply can't stand it.

2. If there is ever a page corner turned in a book, I have to flatten it.

3. I pick at the middle of my upper lip, sometimes because I'm nervous, sometimes because I'm bored.

And that's about it folks. I'm not doing the full 5 because I really can't think of anymore. If any of you can think of any weird quirks of mine, please keep them to yourselves so I can continue on in my blissful ignorance. :)


Here are a few thoughts about a great American hero: Chuck Norris

-Chuck Norris sleeps with a night lite. Not because he is afraid of the dark, but because the dark is afriad of Chuck Norris.
-The boogey-man checks under his bed every night...for Chuck Norris.
-Chuck Norris has counted to infinity...twice.
-Chuck Norris's tears could cure cancer, too bad he has never cried.
-Chuck Norris is the only person to have beaten the wall in Tennis.
-Chuck Norris knows the wrong way to eat a Reeses.
-Chuck Norris always knows the exact location of Carmen San Diego.
-Chuck Norris is the reason Waldo is hiding.
-Chuck Norris actually died 10 years ago, but the Grimm Reaper is too afraid to tell him.

All of this information on the great man,Chuck Norris, has been supplied by Jeremy Jenkins, my awesome brother in law.
