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. :)

CONGRATULATIONS to my Em, who just passed the bar exam! I'm so proud! :D *cue SNL skit music* She used to be a student...now she's a lawyer...Unfrozen Non-Student Lawyer!

I've realized something really obvious. Have you ever noticed that almost every famous person or group pushing people (especially young people) to vote is liberal? When was the last time you saw a Republican MTV Rock the Vote rally? I thought that was weird until Evan pointed out that it's in liberals' best interest to promote youth voting, because most young people will vote Democrat. Figures. Did anyone see the Daily Show on Wednesday night? One of their "reporters" went to the last debate and kept going back and forth between the camps in the press room, asking each for the truth about who won the debate. When they each assured him that their side had won, he "began to suspect that they might have their own agenda." The segment ended with him standing in the middle of the room screaming, "This is all a lie and a sham!" and collapsing. It was hilarious - and I can kind of relate. It'll be a relief when the election is over.

Bible study was wonderful last night. The topic was hope, one of my favorite spiritual subjects. :) He talked about how everyone needs hope - something to look forward to. Without hope, we'll die. Maybe not physically, but spiritually. To most people, hope is related to uncertainty (like, "I hope I did well on that test"), but as Christians, our hope is certain (Hebrews 11:1). He went on to say that when Jesus went to the cross, we - the Church - were His hope. It was just amazing. I did a search, and it's surprising how much the New Testament has to say about hope. I feel inspired.

Has anyone heard about this? Wow! I can't wait for the new U2 CD. They're incredible.

I'm excited about this weekend. We're getting the apartment in order, like I mentioned, and Saturday night is my lingerie shower that Myla is throwing. It'll just be a few of us since I didn't want everyone I know there...for obvious reasons. :) Myla definitely knows how to throw a party, though, so it's going to be a lot of fun. Yay!

I can't ever remember feeling as happy as I have these past six months or so. You could say I'm just excited about the wedding, but I like to think that getting married is bringing about a change in me that makes me a more optimistic person. That's what true love is supposed to do, right? God gave us marriage to make us holy. And happy.

Time for a Diet Vanilla Coke!

We are the champions, my friends.

GO RED SOX! I like Boston and I like underdogs. This will be an entertaining World Series. Even Evan was transfixed by the game last night, and he doesn't like baseball much. We were talking about the post-game riots earlier:

Me: Why do they want to destroy their own city? Something good happened! I don't get it.
Evan: ...They should have goalposts on the baseball field, so at the end of the game the fans could tear down the goalposts to work out their aggression.
Me: Or they could build up the pitcher's mound a lot. So the fans could tear it down and throw sand and stuff.
Evan: Yes... sand will assuage the mob. "Hey, I have sand! I can go home now!"

I'm in my new cubicle! I like it. It's quieter down here.

I'm the last person to take this survey. )

everything that I wanted

Happy birthday, kiwiriaMaria! I hope it's been a good day!

For the first time in months, I did some scrapbooking last night. I've really been in the mood to create something, so it felt good to cut and paste. :) I worked on my book of me and Evan from meeting to engagement. If I finish it by the wedding, maybe we can display it on a table at the reception! I'd like to get more done on it tonight, but that's not going to happen. We're having our first pre-marital counseling session. I'm looking forward to it and am curious about what we're going to do. Robert said to bring our Bibles, which is a good sign. :)

Changes are coming closer at work. The managers are still interviewing for the two extra coordinator positions. We decided this morning how everyone will be arranged, office-space wise. I'm going to move two cubicles down to be closer to one of my bosses, since it looks like I won't be working for the other one once the new people come (right now I support two people). No one has told me anything for sure, but that's what I suspected anyway. It'll be weird to be in a new cubicle, but after three years, a change of scenery might be nice. I'm just afraid I won't be busy enough once my workload is cut in half. I hate to sit around looking bored (I say as I type an LJ entry).

Bad censorship: One of our radio stations that plays Avril Lavigne's song "My Happy Ending" edits the language so that one of the lines says, "All the fish that you do." It cracks me up. That's like when they edit action movies on TV so that the characters say totally nonsensical things, like "I'm gonna kick your pie."

What color am I? )

let's locomote

Bible study is tonight and I'm excited. This series is about Christianity and postmodernism, and each study will be inspired by a movie. Last week was Reality Bites, one of my favorites. The header of the outline was one of Ethan Hawke's lines: "There's no point to any of this. It's all just a random lottery of meaningless tragedy and a series of near escapes." Tonight we're going to look at Saving Private Ryan. It's been a long time since I went to an intellectual-type study. I like it. Oh, and the girl who got mad at me for not making her a bridesmaid will be there. I've totally ignored her message, so there could be violence on her part. :P Yet another reason why I'm glad Evan is going with me. Of course, she's so unpredictable that she may have forgotten all about it. Who knows. I wish I could force that girl into counseling.

Something funny and random: A guy who used to be in RUF with us, when in high school, signed people's yearbooks with a verse reference. Since he went to a Christian high school, it was a popular thing to do. Well, when people looked it up, I Samuel 24:3, it read "He came to the sheep pens along the way; a cave was there, and Saul went in to relieve himself." This guy is a youth pastor now, by the way. LOL. Ryan just sent me an e-mail that said "Don't forget I Samuel 24:3," so that's why I thought of it.

Does anyone know how to make your entry icons show up in the Generator style? I've seen it done, I just don't know how to do it.

I have the microphone, and you don't.

This is a long day. Well, Big Brother hasn't stopped me from writing...yet. So I will talk and assume people are still interested in what I have to say. :P

Last night Evan and I had our first dance lesson, and it was so much fun! We were both nervous about it, but our instructor is nice and we felt like we did a good job. We learned a step each of foxtrot, waltz, and swing. Well, I already knew the swing one, but Evan didn't. Dancing comes naturally to me. After six years of ballet, six years of marching band, and about six years of exercise videos, plus a short swing-dancing phase in college, I'm good at following directions. This is why, at clubs and stuff, I prefer line dances to just freestyle dancing (at which I'm not so good). Anyway, I was comfortable and had a good time. The only problem was that I kept putting my feet together, instinctively, at the end of every step. I haven't marched in seven years, but every once in a while, something like that will remind me that all my training is still in there.

When we got home, Kathy called to ask if she could come over and take the rest of her stuff that she'd left at the apartment. Yay! She took her computer and its desk, which had been in the living room, and a bunch of stuff from the main closet. Now the living room seems almost too spacious. My mom is totally redecorating my parents' house, so when their new furniture arrives in a month or so, we're getting their current couch. A real couch! I only have a big loveseat and some chairs. Evan is off this afternoon, so now that we have room, he's going to bring some of his stuff over. I'm ready to get started arranging our apartment. :)

Also, it was exciting to see Kathy twice in a three-day period. I don't know if I've mentioned this, but we've always had a weird tendency to wear the same colors. As soon as she walked in, I noticed we were both wearing a dark red sleeveless top and dark pants. We haven't lived together for over two months! Evan says the real kicker is, how many days have we dressed the same and not known it? Kathy says that when we're old and in the nursing home, we'll probably be wearing the same muumuu when we come down to the cafeteria. This led to speculation about whether our generation, when old, will even wear muumuus.

Okay, enough from the peanut gallery. I hope everyone's having a nice day.
