If you're a musician or appreciate classical music, this is a must-see. It's a comedian ranting about Pachelbel. I laughed SO hard. There's some mild language, so you may not want your kids around.



Here's another of his routines, which is partly about the Friends theme song. :)

One of the local radio stations does 90's at Noon now. They used to do it at 9, which meant I never got to hear it, so this is much better. How weird that Third Eye Blind sounds dated now.

On Friday night Evan and I went to dinner and to see The Incredibles. We loved it. Then we went home and ate some of his birthday cake. It was a nice time. On Saturday I expected to spend the day at my parents', as I have for the last four or so Saturdays, but my mom didn't need me for any planning activities. So I got to stay at home and around my own neighborhood, taking care of things I'd been neglecting. At dinnertime my mom and sister came over and took me to dinner at Bennigan's, and then we went to Old Navy to look for clothes for Christmas. I wasn't too thrilled with their selection, but I did get a $7 brown sweater (which I'm wearing now), and my mom got me a cute hat. I'm so excited about the sweater because it matches a skirt I bought in June and have never worn until today, because I had nothing to wear with it. That'll teach me a lesson. Anyway, then Debs stayed and spent the night. Our last sisterly sleepover in my apartment. *sob* :) I have such a nice family.

Sunday was the day of my last bridal shower - the church one! Debra came to church with me, which was fun. After a quick, light lunch, my friend Rachel and I headed out to the house where the shower was held. It was thrown by Kathryn, her mother-in-law, and her sister-in-law (Jenny, whose wedding I went to two years ago). They did a great job. Jenny went to culinary school, so of course the food was amazing (Evan asked, "How was the food?" All I had to say was, "Jenny was there.") There was pumpkin spice coffee and jelly-roll cake. My mom came to the shower, which made me very happy because she finally got to meet these church girls she's been hearing about for years. We got some fun non-registry things, including a Southern Living cookbook, Easy Weeknight Favorites. Yeah, I'm going to need some of those. :) Also, a box of our regular glasses (Geo by Target), and another place setting! Yay! We may be able to set the table after all.

After the party I felt very tired, so I went home and Evan and I had a nice rest, followed by a spontaneous trip to Garibaldi's for pizza, and a viewing of the Monica/Chandler wedding on our Friends DVD. That cliffhanger with Rachel's pregnancy was the best cliffhanger of the whole series, I think.

Today my stomach feels weird and I'm still pretty tired, so I'm glad we don't have anything pressing to do tonight. I feel a lot calmer this week. All of a sudden I realize that the only important thing is that I get to marry the love of my life in twelve days. None of this other stuff matters. For the first time, I really know that. Can you believe this is all happening next week? Wow.

Oh, and Memphis girls, I need a recommendation for a good and inexpensive nail place. I need to make my manicure-pedicure appointment. :)

Hi. Earlier, I was panicking about wedding things, but I talked to my mom and now I feel better. It just gets overwhelming. I'm so thankful for my family. Most of the bridal party is busy, so it's basically me and my family doing everything. Evan hasn't been able to help much, either, since they schedule him to close the store all the time. He can't even go to our dinner/cake tasting on Saturday. :( We're shooting for printing and assembling all the invitations after the tasting, to be sent out next Saturday, but who knows if that'll be possible. As for the flowers, we still haven't decided whether to sign Libby or keep looking. We have decided to save by using (nice) fake flowers for all the decorations, which means that my mom and I will soon be buying and making 123898 fake flower arrangements. Yay.

Sometimes I'm ecstatic about being a bride. Sometimes I want to elope. It fluctuates every half hour or so. Lately I'm really frustrated with myself. I'm so oversensitive and selfish and wedding-absorbed. I'm almost always tired and sore. I don't exercise every day, which I need to be doing since I've apparently gained a few pounds. A lot of the planning is fun, but I anticipate it as work because it's just one more thing to do. When will I learn not to stress out? My faith is like a mustard seed.

Tonight a new Bible study is starting at IPC. It's about Christianity and popular culture. I love those kinds of studies. Which reminds me, I need to tape Joey. Who watched it last week? It was okay. It just seems weird to watch Joey without all the others.

Yay for nicer hair! I went to the salon last night to remedy my awful faded highlights. The situation was so bad, I didn't even need to tell my stylist that something new had to be done. She just held up an orangey lock and said, "Okay, this is what I'm going to do..." She put a lot of my natural color back in so the blondness will stop overwhelming my head. It feels good to be brunettish again. I think I might just get her to do that each time until I'm back to normal. I do like a little haircolor excitement, but maybe it's time to take a break.

Last night Evan and I had our own birthday celebration a little late. He hadn't had time to shop for me before, but did so while I was at the hair salon. He brought roses! I was all excited about that, but he also got me the Kelly Clarkson CD I've wanted forever, and Friends Season 6 (which includes many of my favorites, such as TOW Joey Loses His Insurance). Isn't he great? :D I love him.

Gift cards are cool and useful, but they kind of stress me out because then I want to spend them wisely. I go around and around, wondering if an item is really what I want to use the card for, or if I should save it for a rainy day. I can hoard it forever. Whereas if someone gets me an actual item, it takes the pressure off of me. I'm so weird.

The name badge situation at work grows ever worse. Yesterday as I was coming back in from lunch, I was digging in my purse for my badge and couldn't find it. I know the security guys know who I am, so when I couldn't find it by the time the elevator came, I thought it was no big deal. Well, one of them came over, held the elevator open, glared at me, and said, "Keep digging." I finally found it, but I was so angry and humiliated (there were several other people there). I'm starting to worry that I have a problem with authority or something, because now I start getting angry just thinking about coming into the building. I'm seriously on the verge of parking at the other building and coming in the long back way, just to avoid those guys. The other day my boss, who's worked here 27 years, didn't have her badge and they made her show her driver's license. Um, sorry, I thought this was America.

Here's a list in case you're curious how many LJers I've met. )

Time to check in with the LJ crew! Today has been a busy day so far, but for the moment I'm clear.

Weekend synopsis: Saw Prisoner of Azkaban with the gang. Maybe I'm not as in touch with the books as I used to be, but I really liked it. It's in an entirely different class from the other two movies, and the Trio actors have improved noticeably. The only big problem was the complete lack of explanation of the Moony & co. connection. That's a HUGE piece of the story, and I had to catch up the non-readers after the movie. Other than that, great job, Cuaron.

On Saturday I went to my boss's daughter's wedding. It was in a park and not like any other wedding I've been to. Since there was no other way to hide them, the bride and bridesmaids were brought to the area in a limo, and the groomsmen walked up to the limo one at a time to collect their bridesmaids. It was neat. The reception was fun and catered by our famous Corky's barbecue. I met a nice girl who works at Sweet Peppers, the new deli Danielle told me about awhile back. I hadn't heard it was open, so she told me where it was and our group went there for lunch after church yesterday. The verdict: I like it (I had the Peppers & Beef sandwich) and the tea is good, but it's not McAlister's. Of course, I was also influenced by the insanely large crowd. Crowds stress me out a little.

The rest of Sunday was wonderful. Evan and I had the whole day together, because- answer to prayer- his store just hired someone who likes to work Sundays. So now he only works one Sunday a month. Yay! :) It was an excessively mushy day with plenty of cartoon hearts. We got a little antsy in the afternoon, so we went to Target to get Friends Season 3. Yay again! Later we went back to church for the inaugural service of our new singles Bible study (I refuse to call it by its name because it's so cheesy). It was good, and we had a good-sized crowd for the first night. Casey showed up, which made me so happy since I'd just been thinking of her. Afterwards, a bunch of us went to El Porton and I had fried ice cream. A perfect ending to a perfect day. (Oh, and also I got to talk to [livejournal.com profile] admael for a while between services- I'd been hoping to run into her. :))

Now it's Monday and I'm overwhelmed by everything that's coming up. Especially in the way of gifts. I have a gift list a mile long right now- birthdays, weddings, Father's Day. Also I'm planning to get some new furniture when Kathy moves out (in only four weeks). Then I'll need money for the New Hampshire trip. All this money can come out of savings, but it's going to be a big hit. I don't have to get the furniture right away, but I want to. So I have no right to complain. :P I'm just excited about re-nesting and having things my own way.

Hope everyone's having a good day!

I forgot to mention this, but thanks so much to Jen and Jason for sending me a keychain radio scanner thingy (it looks sort of like this). Everyone here thinks it's really cool! Thanks for being in the know and saving me tons of money. :) Now I can have more music variety on my walks. Also, my Friends 'Til The End book finally came in the mail. It's great...I'm reading through it slowly. At some point I want to scan a bunch of the pictures and make icons from them. I've been making a lot of random stock-photography icons lately but never get around to posting them. Are you guys interested?

Tonight I get to go to Macaroni Grill with my family, the guys, and my sister's best friend/roommate, Amanda. I'm excited but feel guilty about my insatiable appetite. On the plus side, I've exercised to some degree every day this week, which is unusual. :) I called the house earlier, and Debra answered and sang her conversation, in English and Spanish, sometimes alternating every other word. When my mom finally wrested the phone from her, she felt like she ought to sing too. LOL. We're weirdos.

I feel such a burden lately for many of you. So many people's lives are changing and I find myself wanting to pray a lot. I wish I was a more eloquent person, so I could pray more specifically instead of saying the same things again and again. I'm going to pull a Lauren and end with a verse: In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. - Jesus, John 16:33.

Apparently, many people on LJ are ready to shoot anyone who even mentions Friends, so I'll just say that I was sad but satisfied with the ending. And Joey looks funnier than I expected, from the commercial about it. "Hello, welcome to the news. I am Name."

I felt very cranky earlier but now I'm calmer. The next six or so weekends will be packed with wedding, birthday, and graduation events. The insanity begins. One current worry is that MaryElaine wanted Kathy, Em, and I to go to the lake with her over Memorial Day weekend. Since Em's bridal shower is that weekend, we cut it back to Sunday and Monday, and now we've concluded that we'll be too busy to go at all. We still haven't told her. I'm not looking forward to that. :( This weekend I need to go food shopping, exercise, go to the mall to get a skirt that's finally on clearance, take Debra to Hallmark so we can buy my mom's traditional Precious Moment, vacuum and Febreze my car, pack and store my winter clothes and unpack my summer clothes, and make and send bridal shower invitations. It's safe to say that some of these things won't get done. I hate it when things don't get done.

Today Debra's coming home for the summer! Also, since it's Mother's Day, there will be a lot of nice family time this weekend. Yay!

The Ace of Base song "Wheel of Fortune" is in my head and I have no idea how it got there. I haven't heard it in years.

Sorry for doing this meme, but Jessica made a poll out of it and it's a lot easier to take now. Feel free to skip. Me, me, me )

Everyone's already said it, but Happy Zero Birthday to little Emily Christian, daughter of Rebecca and Steven! I'm so excited for you guys.

Dont' forget it's National Day of Prayer today. I went to an excellent lunchtime service at Second Pres; the sermon was on I Timothy 2, about how the most important thing in ministry (or anything else) is prayer.

Last night I made a mix CD of my favorite RUF songs and a few other worship-y songs from other sources. I've been wanting to do that for a long time. When I listened to it on the way to work this morning, the sound quality was noticeably bad (I use Media Player to rip songs- .wma). Now I'm kind of bummed. Anyone know of a free mp3 ripping program? I'm so dumb when it comes to computer things.

So it's Friends finale night! We're having a small party with pizza and Friends Charades. The Dateline special last night was so good! I cleared a tape and am taping all the finale stuff, editing out the commercials, and Kathy's mom is going to put it on DVD for us. Oh, and can I say again how great it is to have Kathy back? Really back. The change in her is amazing. After seeing what her, and Lauren, and Jonathan have gone through in getting their masters, I don't think I will ever go to grad school. Ever. Then again, you guys have something to show for all your work. I have no accomplishments. I fear this is my destiny. :P

A lot of you have made very meaningful posts today that I wanted to comment on, and I have other things I wanted to say here, but the work keeps coming. Maybe I'll have more time later.

Happy Arbor Day! Don't forget to celebrate trees today. My office is giving away blue spruce seedlings in a tube. I took one, even though I don't have anywhere to plant it. I wish I had a yard! Someone suggested I plant it in a big pot, so I might try that. It can live on the front porch for a while. All the more reason to visit Garden Ridge tomorrow. :) The forecast for tomorrow looks bad, so I've decided not to go to the Fest. If the rain clears up around Switchfoot's showtime, I might go downtown and stand on the bluff above the park- I'm told you can hear just as well from there.

So those Gap tank top commercials are intriguing. I'm glad to see that they're advocating better coverage, but wouldn't two or three layers of tank tops get kind of hot? Thus defeating the purpose of a tank top? Oh well...I'm still sorely tempted to buy some. I like the colors.

Friends last night....waaaah! Did anyone else feel bummed all night after seeing it? The finale will be two hours! They need that time to wrap things up, but wow. That's like a movie! I'm sure I'll be crying the whole time, even though I keep telling myself it's just a TV show. I feel pathetic.

Oh, and another thing about trees: wouldn't it be so romantic to plant a tree with your significant other? Especially to commemorate something, like planting a tree together on the day he proposes. Then that can be "your tree" and you can visit it when you're old and remember the romance of your youth. I just thought of that. :)

In a few minutes I have to go to the eye doctor again. Apparently you can't just pick up your contacts anymore. You have to have an appointment to pick up your contacts, ensuring maximum waste of your time. What is the world coming to? I'll be back later, hopefully with something less worthless to say.

So those Gap tank top commercials are intriguing. I'm glad to see that they're advocating better coverage, but wouldn't two or three layers of tank tops get kind of hot? Thus defeating the purpose of a tank top? Oh well...I'm still sorely tempted to buy some. I like the colors.

Friends last night....waaaah! Did anyone else feel bummed all night after seeing it? The finale will be two hours! They need that time to wrap things up, but wow. That's like a movie! I'm sure I'll be crying the whole time, even though I keep telling myself it's just a TV show. I feel pathetic.

Oh, and another thing about trees: wouldn't it be so romantic to plant a tree with your significant other? Especially to commemorate something, like planting a tree together on the day he proposes. Then that can be "your tree" and you can visit it when you're old and remember the romance of your youth. I just thought of that. :)

In a few minutes I have to go to the eye doctor again. Apparently you can't just pick up your contacts anymore. You have to have an appointment to pick up your contacts, ensuring maximum waste of your time. What is the world coming to? I'll be back later, hopefully with something less worthless to say.

Happy early birthday to Tash and Lori! You're great! I hope you both have happy birthday weekends- you deserve some fun! :)

If anyone wants to look at all my icons, I remembered how to link to them! Now I have an icon for almost every topic. Yay!

The Apprentice finale was good. I was surprised, but not upset. They finally showed the Friends preview commercial that [livejournal.com profile] follow_through mentioned the other day, and wow! It's going to be so sad. I'm totally spoiler-free, so the next few episodes will be exciting. This morning I gave in and pre-ordered this book. Pathetic, I know. After the finale, I'll stop obsessing over the show so much. I promise. Sorry. :(

I had lunch with Casey today, and she made me feel so happy and encouraged. I hadn't really talked to her since Evan and I first started dating, so I caught her up. She told me how inspiring it is to see how far God has brought both of us, and said that she's happier about Evan and I together than she's been about any other relationship in her six years of RUF. Apparently other RUF people who know us are saying the same. Since Casey counseled and helped me from the very beginning, I take that as a big honor. :) Sometimes I'm so happy that I can't believe this is my life. It's so fulfilling to see your years of struggle pointing other people to God. What better purpose could I ask for? I'm just...so thankful. For everything that's happened to me. And I'm honored to know such wonderful people.

The main source of that thankfulness is taking me to dinner and a movie tonight. We're finally going to see Miracle. I'm pumped. I love cheesy Olympic movies. Hey, that reminds me- I thought I saw Moira Kelly (of The Cutting Edge fame) in some sort of credit card commercial the other night. Please tell me she hasn't stooped to that! I thought she was a pretty good actress.

You know, I'm really kind of a blabbermouth. When it comes to my own life, anyway. In case you haven't noticed. :P I have a hard time keeping anything secret. It's very aggravating. Am I alone in this?

Maybe I'll do a Friday lyrics poll later, if I can think of some songs.
