Friday Stuff

I'm sitting here in the fellowship hall at church. The youth (and Dusty) are off playing Sardines. I hate that game.

So glad Friday is here, I can't even contain myself. I may not do physically strenuous work, but it's emotionally draining. I'm getting really tired of being yelled at for stuff that's not my fault, you know? But I guess it comes with having a customer service based job. People can be really hateful, and I suppose I'm learning it the hard way.

A few cool things for my Friday blogginess:

Two friends from college, the Tius, are biking across America this summer! They are riding to benefit a program called Kenya Kids Can, headed by a man named Steve Piefer. You can check out their personal blog about the trip here. They are hoping to raise $4100 before they start their trip and that's great news because, it gives you a whole 5 months to donate to their cause! Score! Go to their blog and you'll find all the info on how to get your donation to them. They're a super cool couple and I really can't wait to see how the Lord uses their willingness to do the seemingly crazy to take care of his kids in Kenya.

I'm currently reading the most anti-Valentine's Day book I can think of. I really didn't do this intentionally, it just occurred to me today at work:

It's so funny, especially if you're a fan of the real novel! The first line reads, "It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains."

My favorite part so far is towards the beginning when they're at a ball (imagine that) and some zombies break in. "As guests fled in every direction, Mr. Bennet's voice cut through the commotion, 'Girls! Pentagram of Death!'... Each girl produced a dagger from her ankle and stood at the tip of an imaginary five-pointed star."

Good stuff, I'm also planning on reading Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters sometime this year.

Happy weekend! I'm off to make sure these kids quit cheating. :)

Recently, It Snowed

Dusty is learning to play Oh My Sweet Carolina out in the living room right now and I must say, I'm in a happy place.

Here are some pictures I took on Saturday of our recent snow. I'll call it Old Man Winter Can Die in His Sleep vol. 2:
