I hate to sound like a broken record, but the weather here is just unreal. It's almost chilly outside and I love it! This is the least hot August I can ever remember. Everyone is speculating about what this will mean for our winter. I hope it just means that we'll have a long fall. :) All you Florida residents are on my mind today with the hurricane. I can't believe it's been upgraded to a 4. The organization around the eye is pretty impressive, though.

Well, last night I got a big surprise. Ryan had told me he was coming over because he had something for Evan and I...a birthday/early wedding present. He showed up at the back door with a new TV!!! Since Kathy left, I've been using a small castoff TV of my family's that has horrible reception. We've only been getting two channels- and that's with one of those signal enhancers. Ryan said he was tired of hearing me complain about it (which I really only did when he was there and wanted to watch something), so he fixed the problem. :) It's a 27-inch TV with a flattish screen and three A/V inputs, so we can watch DVDs again! The picture quality is awesome, and once my stereo works again, we can hook it up and it'll be like a home theater. I was so excited and surprised. It's unlike Ryan to give presents, let alone such a big present, so it's a happy sign that he's thinking of me in a more familial way. There's no one I'd rather have for a brother-in-law. I am very blessed.

So my birthday weekend is upon me. Monday is my actual birthday and I'm taking it off of work, but the weekend will be full of fun activities. Tonight we're watching the opening ceremonies with Debs and Ryan; tomorrow night we're going to a Derek Webb concert (which means I won't be at [livejournal.com profile] rawee1's bachelorette party - sorry, Robin! :(); Sunday night we're going to the Elvis Candlelight Vigil to wacko-watch; and Monday will be full of meals out and other fun things. Also, going to the DMV, since my license renewal-by-mail form has mysteriously disappeared. :P Going to the Vigil was my mom's idea. She thinks we ought to do something memorable for my 25th, and despite living in Elvis's hometown and being born on his death-day, I've never been to the Vigil. It ought to be hilarious. Don't worry, I'll take pictures. :D

Finally: What impressions do you get from me? And is there anything you associate with me?Whoever answers the above random questions will receive in return my own impressions and associations regarding them (if I haven't done so already!).

Brenda= laughs at what is funny, very sweet, not intrusive, churchy but not nun-like, has her priorities straight- you know what is important in life, like love, a home, family.

The weather here is just like up there apparently...it was cold this morning when I went out to go to class! It's nice and breezy here too! I'm loving it! It's not AT ALL like August around here! Good times! :-)

Wow! A new TV? That's awesome! What a great bro-in-law!

Sounds like you have a great weekend planned! Have BIG fun!!

Awww. Thank you. I know I've been complaining about a lot of stuff lately, but I'm going to make a conscious effort to be more positive! I'm going to have a relaxing weekend! I'm looking forward to it! :-)

I think you can renew online - it may save you a trip to the DMV!!
Happy Birthday early, since I won't see you at work Monday!

I just tried...it won't let me for some reason. I'll try again from home. :P

Hope the packing's going okay!

It has been nice, hasn't it?

And be kind to fans. We're just ordinary people. We don't show up on Sundays to point and mock your fandom. I'm not joining the folks awaiting the Second Coming of Elvis, but a woman with an authentic Han Solo blaster and boots (and bloodstriped pants on her sewing machine) has no room to laugh.

That said, could the highway department have picked a WORSE weekend to close the bridges for repairs?

I know not all Elvis fans are wackos. I didn't mean to be offensive. Sorry.

I didn't know the bridges were closed...

Joyful, cheerful and optimist. :)

:) Wow. That surprises me.

Joanna: studious, thoughtful, faithful, in control of things. :) I associate Europe and languages with you.

Cool surprise! :D

Impressions: you are a caring, fun, sweet gal who loves God. The "Mona Lisa" painting, cats, bunnies, Florida, and curly hair remind me of you. :)

Whenever I think of someone who is truly good and faithful, I think of you. You represent to me all that is good and wonderful about faith. Whenever I see a girl with curly hair or a beautiful smile, I think of you. You're one of the few people that, when I look into your eyes it's like I can see God in them. I'm not saying you're perfect, I'm saying you're a remarkable woman who inspires me in so many ways.

*sniffle*

Gosh, I don't know what to say to that. Thank you. :) When I think of you, I think of someone who is fun-loving and free-spirited, confident and sure of her own mind. You're one of the most unique people I've had the privilege to know. :)

That's really cool about the TV, it sounds a lot like ours. Ours was a gift from Jason's parents when we got married. TVs make good wedding gifts. LOL!

Impressions: That you are fun, a good listener, compassionate, real, sensitive (in a good way) and godly. Yer the best!

Associations: Gandalf (cats), college fellowship, college football, tea, McAlistars(sp?), hotels and beautiful curly hair. :)

Happy early birthday! (I'm saying it now in case I don't get a chance to on Monday.)

My impressions of you: humble, mature, fun-loving, faithful, joyful.
What I associate with you: weddings, the beach, American Idol (namely Clay Aiken!), books (Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, plus just books in general), weather, clouds, iced tea, flip flops, pet rabbits.
