Boo is 2 and 1 Month!

Have you ever spent an hour typing a new post, and then blogger "loses" it before it publishes?

So yes, it's been a whole month to the day since I last posted. "Shout out" to all you kind folks who have been begging for my return :)

Here's a quick run down of some new and exciting developments, with a bonus feature of 6 weird things about me. Purely by request of course. Ellyn, my cousin, tagged me. I don't think I would just decide to post six weird things about myself out of no where. I'm not that bored. Or weird.

So in keeping with the 'list' theme, I will just list what I've been up to, and maybe a few random observations.

1. My church is planning a mission trip to Panama next summer. I am so there.
2. I will be taking Spanish at the Nashville School of Preaching next semester. It is free! Last time I was in Honduras I had a lot of fun learning bits of the language. I decided I would learn more if I ever went back to a spanish speaking country.
3. I didn't get into the photography class that I needed next semester, so I'm going to take an open lab for black and white darkroom. I'll get to print as much as I want of whatever I want. Rock on!
4. I'm going to be teaching a Korean woman English using the Friendspeak ESL program. It's like LST (Let's Start Talking) - we use scripture as the reading tool for learning a new language.
5. At work we've lost 3 people, have already replaced 2, and the 3rd will start on Monday. I try NOT to post about work for various reasons, but this has had a significant impact on my work load and has been a major reason why I have not had the time or energy to post lately. I thrive on change, so this has really been a blessing in disguise. And there is light at the end of this tunnel! Work is hard. Life is short. God is good.
6. Random observation 1: Edwin Warner Park is the Labrynth of Nashville. Every time I go there I get lost. I haven't found David Bowie yet, but the trolls have been very helpful.
7. Random observation 2: Saturday morning cartoons have changed since I was a child. Where are the smurfs? Now we have clowns singing 'dance to the beat of your heart'. What does that mean??

On to my weirdness.

1. I can put my tongue in my nose. This mesmerizes small children and is suspectedly the #1 reason why I am still single.
2. I like movies like Bring it On and She's the Man.
3. I, like Ellyn, talk to myself. Out loud. All the time. Conversationally. I hope that by next spring I will be having these talks in Spanish. I can ask myself a question, give myself advice, give myself options, weigh the pros and cons, make a decision, talk myself out of that decision, and then come up with a completely different solution. I don't charge as much as I should either.
4. I like tornados and inclement weather. This may be due to a lack of drama in my otherwise common and quiet life. Or maybe I'm just sick.
5. I just noticed that all of these start with 'I'. I'm pretty observant like that.
6. I'm a slave to the beat.
7. I can't do things in sixes.

I've never been tagged before, but I think now I'm supposed to tag someone else. Only problem is, the only people who read this have already been tagged, except my mother and she doesn't have a blog. So if you're reading this and you have a blog, and you haven't been tagged yet, then consider yourself tagged...'n stuff. I'm just dying to hear about 6 things that are weird about you. Really. I am.

Ok, well I'm off to Edwin Warner Park again. I WILL master this trail of tears yet. Does anyone have a GPS I can borrow??

Good to have you back! One of these days, I'm going to make Malia arrange a meeting with you. You are too funny! I enjoy reading your posts; even though I don't know you, I feel as though I do!

I used to speak spanish pretty well, but I haven't since my second year of college or so, so I'm terribly out of practice. But I keep thinking it would be really neat to be able to speak it well again. I'd love to go to Honduras with a group from my church in the future. Maybe I should brush up on the language skills first.

What show are the dancing clowns from?

I don't believe your tongue-in-nose trick will scare off the right guy. He'll be around soon. :)

Lisa, I would love to meet you too!

I don't know what the dancing clowns show was, but I don't think I approve of it.

I think the clowns you're referring too are The Big Comfy Couch on PBS. Sweetpea and Boo love that show!
