Wow.  This seems a bit early, but I guess it’s kind of cool.  Crazy.


The Civil Wars

Tonight Sarah and I [along with some of my fellow seminarians] are heading to Philly to catch The Civil Wars, one of her favorite [current] bands.  Should be fun.

Zechariah 14:12
And the LORD will send a plague on all the nations that fought against Jerusalem. Their people will become like walking corpses, their flesh rotting away. Their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths.

I survived.  Sarah did not.

Run For Your Lives.  A 5k consisting of 12 obstacles and an abundance of the walking dead just outside of Baltimore.  My (belated) birthday present to my wife.  Our race started at 8:30 in the am and it was a cool 50°.  One of the obstacles was wading through a 5ft deep lake, an ice-cold lake.  As soon as I touched the water my heart stopped and my voice went up a few pitches.  Along with the lake, we had to climb over walls, rope ladders, run (read: walk) up the steepest, muddiest hill ever and dodge zombies all along the way.  I have to admit, once I was up and over the first obstacle and staring at approximately 40 zombies waiting to eat my brains, I gave myself a pat on the back.  This was a good idea.  Fun times.  I just wish my wife would have made it out alive.

I’m No Food Critic, But….

October 8, 2011 § 5 Comments

…I just had the worst Mexican food ever.  Quite possibly, it was the worst meal I have ever paid for.  I ordered a bean and cheese burrito.  How in the world can you NOT make a decent bean and cheese burrito.  Absolutely ridiculous.  I’m pretty sure the rice was rice-a-roni.

I’ve just come down with my second case of home sickness.  I’m longing for some homemade salsa,  some fried potato tacos,  a big fat burrito, a chile relleno; something, ANYTHING!  Everyone one warned me, “Whatever you do, don’t eat the Mexican food out here.”  I refused to listen.  Again, my stubborn optimism has got the best of me.  I can’t WAIT to be back in CA for Christmas so I can go out and enjoy some good ol’ tasty Mexican food.

Our stubborn optimism has reached its limit.  One month of living out of boxes is all we can take.  We will now unpack.  Yes PTS, you win.  We give up.

Class Picture. How Cute.
