Mmm.... There's this little drink called jagermiester. I love it. I loved it last night. I loved it for free. Hey Scots, I know you turn your nose at this stuff but believe me- drink it cold and you'll feel like a million bucks.

Well for a little bit of useless information, I went trip-shopping last night. I love that. It's so exciting to buy things like batteries, film, dramamine... Those darn Europeans use a different voltage over there than we do so I had to buy this adapter set so I could use my plug-in electronics. Its heavy and cost $20. I was totally picturing like a little quarter-inch plug or something.. No. It's half my weight limit. I also bought a lot of juice for the fast that is coming up. I will be doing my first extended fast (one week!) along with many others in our church to pray for the country of Yemen. This is going to be a big stinking deal for me- i've never fasted that long and I've always struggled with fasting and working at the same time. I understand in my head that its not realistic to think I'm supposed to spend all day in prayer and meditation, but i always feel like I'm fasting wrong anyway. When I'm at work its not like i can have my thoughts on praying very often at all. I've gotta pay attention to what I'm doing or I'll screw up. (I screw up even when i do pay attention.) I guess I just assume other people are more spiritual than me and therefore can run computer programs and pray at the same time. Or worse, other people know some different form of prayer that I'm too immature a Christian to understand. So this will be a challenge. Still I feel strongly that God is asking me to fast as well and he's the man, what he says goes. He's not going to ask me to do something I can't. He's only concerned about two things- His glory and my growth. I see a week-long fast as a step in the direction of both.

wow, i just went from dramamine to fasting. what?

I splurged this morning. Rick's bakery. A blueberry donut and a chocolate filled long john. an Irish creme coffee. BLISS.

OH and one other thing- if someone can tell me why my blog keeps indenting each post further and further across the page, please tell me and tell me how to make it stop! I didn't put that code in there.

"I will praise Thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are Thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well." Psalm 139:14
