So I usually check cnn.com everyday to find out what is happening in the world, and today one of the top stories really confused me... a puppy chewed off a babies toes and was sent to the pound... but calls are pouring into the pound to adopt the puppy, and no one has showed any concern for the baby, wierd? I think so
read it for yourself and tell me what you think... http://www.cnn.com/ ( It's the video properly entitled, "puppy chews off babies toes")
Ok so this is the ever so cliche shout out post that everyone has to have. Hopefully this will be a series. I hear those are cool too, so number one shout out goes to MY FAT FOUR JAKS. Jill Amanda Katie Sarah is what that stands for. These are my best girlfriends in the whole world. Each special and unique in their own ways, they have all contributed something amazing and special into my life. The four of us were inseperable during our high school years(minus one year which wont be mentioned) We went to dances in each others groups, ate lunch every day, had bible study together every week and hung out every weekend. Honestly when we were seperated to go our own ways for college, it was the hardest moment of my life. I actually had to drive Sarah to college with her sister and then leave while crying hugging her sister. It's hard after being together all the time to go to seeing each other only once in a while and with boyfriends, jobs and school, its hard to just hang out with the four of us either. I want to tell everyone how special each and everyone of these girls is in my life.
Jill Maag:We met in the 7th grade at our C group. Instantaneous friends. Jill has a passion for life and for her faith. She is always an example to me with her ability to stand up for herself and never let herself be compromised. She has shown me love when I didnt deserve it and laughter when I needed it.
Amanda Sargent: Also met in 7th grade at our C group. Amanda is a source of happiness to me. In her own way is one of the funniest people I know (in a PLNU sort of way). She is strong beyond words and always lives her life for today, never worrying about the future. She is amazingly smart and has a zest for life that is so inspiring.
Sarah Morines: Sarah hit me in the face with a softball in the 3rd grade and so we didnt like each other until our sophomore year of high school.(she also claims that I was a mean girl... whatever.) Sarah is humorous beyond words and encouraging in so many ways. Right when I am down Sarah is there to help me up. Always speaking her mind and letting me know when I need a kick in the pants. She has lifted me up out of so many bad situations and has showed me what it means to be a true follower of Christ.
I owe these girls so much. My life is dramatically different without them by my side 24/7 but its amazing to be able to go through life with them and watch us grow as friends.
Ok so tonight was seriously so boring Ryan Garvin and I were coming up with some pretty fun things to do...
Ryan read his entire manual on his really old volvo and I searched the internet for award winning holiday decorated homes and tickets for the tyra show.
The best part of the night ,a lady comes into our office coughing. Ryan is the biggest germaphobe in the world. So when she coughs DIRECTLY into his face he keeps his cool until she walks away where he then rushes to the back room to mix together 2 "emergen-c" packets and dump them into his water. He turns on the fan near his desk to "rid the germs" and then looks for more disinfectant.
I don't know what those two funny stories have to do with one another but they were funny to us and I thought I should share.
This literally is my favorite time of the year. School is about to get out (after a week of finals aka... terror)and I could not be more excited about it. This semester was so painfully boring (minus political science with Sarah which was awesome and we are seriouly considering being president)I am so done with it. I love christmas time though. The sights, smells, activities I love it all, even the cold. Though my family hasnt started to decorate yet, the office where I work hasa giant tree and the lights on the houses all makes it "chrismassy" Plus Brandon works at a christmas tree lot so sometimes his car will smell like a good old fashioned pine tree. Thought I would share with you some highlights of what I am looking forward to most about Christmas 2006:
1. Spending time with family 2. Eating awesome food 3. Working with my favorite people in "the cave" 4. decorating the tree with my family and watching a christmas story 5. Going to christmas service 6. Christmas Eve at my grandmas house (its in palm springs so it will consist of swimming and delicious food and most likely a football game or two) 7. Leaving for Michigan 2 days after christmas to meet and spend some time with Brandons family 8. Ski, toboggan, snow mobile and drink hot chocolate in Michigan. 9. New years eve And the number one exciting event of the season:(besides Michigan which will rock) 10. Starting my last semester at a community college in January.... Yay!!Time for big college!
Saturday night was so much fun. Sarah Morines, her mother, father, sister and sisters two friends along with myself went to be extras in a movie entitled the comebackers. Ok, so the movie stars the cowboy from anchorman(aka whammy!), Matthew Lawrence, Rory from 8 simple rules and the one handed man from Happy Gilmore. We drove up to cal State Fullerton and sat in the football stands and pretended to cheer for this team from 6:00 pm until 11:00 pm. Heres the breakdown of my thoughts good and bad. Good parts: -got to hang out with the funniest family ever -was able to see up close(well through binoculars) my 5th grade love Matthew Lawrence -Got in trouble for stealing one of the dummies faces and wearing it. -Received a free apple -Sarah and I pretending we were the stars on the way there and treating everyone like our "people"
Bad Parts: - The staff lied to us and told us that they would feed us at 10 but never did -The staff yelled at us numerous times to which my response of "you're mean" generated a very positive laugh and high fives -it was seriously -5378958 degrees with the wind -the boys behind us yelled nasty things at the cheerleaders throughout
The most amazing part of the whole night: Mrs Morines was mad that we were treated so badly so she stole a face mask from a dummy and wore it out. Then she snuck up on me and becky and literally scared the life out of us. Genious I tell you, Genious.
So if you have any interest in being an extra... www.beinamovie.com can let you know of more oppurtunities.
Ok so many people are angered by my thanksgiving review. I did not mean to offend anyone. My thanksgiving was great! I loved the amazing food we ate and of course I love spending time with my loved ones. My criticism in the holiday was only because I compare it to christmas... which is my favorite. That holiday you not only get to spend time with family, but you get to give and receive gifts, listen to great music... including the Shannon family favorite of Manheim Steamroller(spelling?) and there are great smelling decorations everywhere. And hello our savior was born. So my deepest apologies to anyone who thought that my day was terrible because of my previous blog, MY DAY WAS AWESOME! And filling!
