Happy 500th post!!

I'm watching Nacho Libre again. So amazing.

"So anyways, let's get down to the nitty gritty. Tell me, who is this Encarnacion?"

"Well, my favorite color is light tan, my favorite animal is puppies, I like serving the Lord, hiking, play volleyball."

"You gotta be kidding me. Everything you just said.. Is MY favorite thing to do EVERY DAY. "

Later on... "And they don't think I know a butt-load of cr*p about the Gospel.. But I dooooo, ok?"

XD You should watch it. Right. Now. Mary and I break out into our Nacho Libre accents like 20 times a day. Mhmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

New pets

Mom and I found some frogspawn by the lake today. In fact, we found about three different kinds and we have some tadpoles now. They're pretty cool. However, all the little creepies that came with them are NOT cool. There was this one that was in a tube and it would poke its head out and move and stuff. There was this other thing that was like the tube-creepy but it had algae all over it! We killed it. I was getting major heebie jeebies.. I mean seriously! I basically swim in that every summer!

I guess ignorance is bliss... Anyway, I'll try to get some good pictures of them as they mature. Right now they look like the above picture. I would guess we have about 100 eggs.

...You won't be able to walk out in the backyard from now on without being attacked by at least ten frogs... XD

Today we got into a discussion about promises and John was promised something at age five. So I turned to the promiser and said, "He's almost thirty! Come on!!!"


"Aren't you turned twenty-seven in June?"


"That's almost thirty."


"I'm almost twenty, I'm seventeen."

"No you aren't... When you are nineteen and three quarters THEN you will be almost twenty."

XD Sounds like someone is a little sensitive about his age...


For all of you who might be balding... Or even if you're not, this is funny.


Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan.... Life has been so busy in the past few weeks. I've gotten to the point that I don't even want to go out of the house, I just want to experience it as an empty house. ;) So to protect myself from having to leave today I put on a bright orange shirt with my blue and green plaid Easter dress. So now I can't go outside! Yay! I might go for a walk though.

Oh, and I climbed my first tree yesterday!!! =D

Hey baby you're so fine you make me stutter, wha-wha-what's your name?

Well, Allie accompanied me to walking class today. We were walking in the Harbor and just enjoying being able to talk about life. While we were talking about life this shiny red beemer drove by with the windows down. And we were catcalled. Yup. Thank you, testosterone-fueled teen aged males. Allie and I were like, "PSH." Then we were wondering how you are supposed to respond to that. I am SO BAD with comebacks... Oh man. One time some junior highers came to the door on Halloween. They came back with some of their female friends The guys hid hiding behind them and the girls said, "They just wanted you to know that they think you're hott."

And I was dumbfounded. What are you supposed to say to that?! "Well thanks.. I really LOVE being judged by what's on the surface and being treated like an object! YES. THAT MADE MY DAY. PLEASE, DO IT AGAIN." >_<

Anyway, Allie and I could only think up, "LOSERRETARD. YOU'RE JUST A TARD. AND A LOSER." But this was all like five minutes AFTER the fact. So we decided we need to have a set of comebacks to be prepared for whatever may happen.

Seriously, I don't freeze up in social situations.. So seeing me dumbfounded is quite the thing to see. It's like I don't want to be rude but I also don't want to foster conversation. *sigh* But I still think there needs to be a plan of action. So I'm going to call together a few friends in the next week or so and then we will plan for hours to prepare ourselves. Then we may find some poor sap and say, "HIT ON US. WE DARE YOU." Then we'll have him weeping...

Oh yes.. I mean seriously! Maybe this is an opportunity for us to be gracious, but it's so lame! They get to make all the witty statements and we're like, "Uhhh.." It's horrid. But they only do this in groups, we are MUCH too intimidating to hit on one-on-one.

One more thing!

hahahahhahahahahahahahahhaha!!!! Engineers... ahahahahahahahhahahahah!!!!! I think this is even funnier because I know quite a few engineers.. XD




So I spent the night at Mary's on Friday. She wanted to do something mindless so that we could talk (and so that she wouldn't have to talk to me when she was falling asleep. You see, sleep is sacred to Mary. =P) so we cut pictures out of magazines and taped them on colored folders. So Mary flips open her magazine and cuts out the first thing that she sees and she does that until she was satisfied with the number of pictures. She just randomly picked out pictures. I opened up my magazine and went through the whole thing mentally marking things that I liked. THEN I went back and cut them out... Very slowly.

When we were finally all done cutting out stuff Mary just plopped everything down on the folder and taped it on. And I rearranged mine five times.... >_<

Yup.. I have organizational issues (fastidious, painstaking, punctilious, scrupulous, meticulous)... It runs in the family though. A certain family member of mine color coordinates her clothes and the labeler Mom gave her was her favorite present of all time.. XD (love you!!! =D)

Ah, love...

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
-Ephesians 6:18

I love Jesus. I always said I loved Jesus but over the past few weeks I've been learning more about my relationship to Him and man.. I love Jesus.

I was at work a few weeks ago and I started praying something along the lines of, "You know Jesus, I'm so glad I can talk to you because I'd be pretty lonely if I was all by myself." It's the truth. My thought life is pretty random, but I usually merge in and out of prayer times during the day. Like I'll remember something that I need to pray about or even if I just feel like talking to Jesus (or just laughing at how amazing His sense of humor is, like a few weeks ago I was having a really hard time and I opened up the nearest Bible and it opened to Psalm 31. I read it and it was really what I needed and then I read verse nine, "Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly." I burst out laughing, and then I was weeping and laughing. "yea, my soul and my belly." XD God is amazing, He reminded me that what I was going through would pass... And that I had things to laugh about.). It's pretty fantastic. And especially at work because you're pretty much alone with about six dogs for eight hours and you go a little crazy sometimes, but I found myself talking to Jesus more at work just because I wasn't doing homework or dealing with people. That's when I realized how nice it is to have Him always there.. Always listening. What if I wasn't a Christian? I would have gone CRAZY. Don't get me wrong, I love my job, but after five hours of being in a big room all alone with dogs.. Throwing balls for them... You either talked to the dogs, yourself or Jesus.

One time I took Kona outside for a walk and I was talking to her partially and mostly to myself and I looked up and some guy was doing landscaping work. I laughed at myself for a while. But see!!! If you talk to yourself all the time you go CRAZY. So I was really glad to be able to talk to Jesus. lol.

Jesus keeps my sanity. (And also, I've just got to the New Testament in my chronological journey through the Bible and I'm in Matthew... I don't think it's ever struck me before just how often Jesus healed people... It's crazy! But I shall post about that at another time.)

Ah, the good old 90's....

We've been looking through some old pictures around here lately and here are some to keep you all entertained, or infuriated if you happen to be my sibling.. =P

Personally, I love the leggings I was wearing in this picture. I wish I had some now.. *weeping*
