Now. i am going to get ticked off.


thank you.

My parents are weird sometimes. My sister and I are going to go see a movie with some friends. Unfortunately, they are friends that happen to be guys. Not just any guys, Brian and Tim guys. And because of that, they flip out. It's not a date. If we went to the movies with any other guys it'd be no problem. Really. You know, go with Jacob, no problem, go with Daniel, no problem, go with Collin, no problem, go with Ryan, no problem. But mention going with Brian and Tim, who are perfect gentlemen, and they're like, "You're not dating anyone who's Catholic!!" Who mentioned dating? Sure we tease eachother like that, but we tease eachother about lots of guys. And seriously, they don't have a problem with me going with guys from school, who aren't Christians, and don't believe in Creation and don't even believe in God, but they have a problem with very nice, Christian (yes, they are, ok?), gentlemanly guys (they won't let us open doors or carry groceries or pay for stuff, and it took some talking to let one of them ride in the front seat of the car). What is up with that??

Not only that, they even like these guys! Which is good cause some days they practically live here. They get along well with the kids and all and are polite and call my dad Sir, even when he says they don't have to.

But they hold a grudge against them because their pastor isn't married and because they have a Pope and believe in purgatory. They're not the only ones to believe in purgatory. If I had a friend who was, say, Armenian Orthadox, would they have such a problem? I doubt it.

Also. My house has a floor and windows and *drumroll* Two Walls. Yeah. And tomorrow it's scheduled for the other two walls and the second floor and the roof. Tim and Collin are coming over to help. (Collin added the ninja in our story, remember? he's very cool.) Well, Tim's coming to help, Collin's just coming. *yay*

My brothers had to help my dad today and now they're saying i have to pay them. They are so greedy and complaining and *argh!* I do appreciate that they're helping. I do. Really, but you know something, I think I'd be more grateful if they didn't whine and demand payment, when I didn't ask them to help, and then threaten to "strike" if I don't pay them $25 an hour, which I don't even make and they don't make that on real jobs. And then I said, fine, cool, but they didn't strike and they're still demanding I pay them. "Do you know how cold it is out there/ I had to hold a hammer all day." Actually I do know cause I was out there some of the time, you know.

i think i"m going to have to work full time this next semester and then go to school in the summer, because I don't have the funds to pay for this semester. And I have other bills that are coming due. *AHHH!!! ADULTHOOD!!!* Ok, no adults read this. cause it's not really, but ....

*sigh* I am making socks and I finished my first pair of mittens. What would I do without yarn?

Oh yeah, and my sisters are taking over my friends again. THAT gets on my nerves. You know, I get to know someone for MONTHS, then they pop their cute little heads in and say "hi" and then never shut up. Ok, Beth may be feeling the same thing with me and Brian, but I don't talk to him that much and if they hadn't had the Brilliant Idea to introduce Tim and I this wouldn't be a problem. But now she gets to see Brian more.... Anyway. And then there's the school friend thing. "Oh, Collin is sooo cute! Hi Collin!!!" But how about we ignore Joe cause he's not cute and not six and a half feet tall. Argh.

Okay. This is getting really annoying.

I wrote a post to go with we're all going to die. I did. But then it got lost somewhere in cyberspace. ARGH!!!

Anyway, I've got Strep Throat for the first time in my life. Why now? I'm 18, I'm supposed to be beyond that or something. My mom doesn't want anyone else getting it so she's put me on quarantine which is why Fletcher makes a cross with his fingers and says "Unclean" every time he passes me.

I don't think he realizes that the lepers were the ones that said that, not the "clean" people. But he stopped because Mommy said she'd spank him if he did it again. *pwned*

And I had a strange conversation with our doctor about dating. But that's another story for another time.

Everyone go take that quiz/untest/survey thing and post your answers and then go make up a distortion for your blog and we'll all go take it and turn up idiots. for example- August- your mom goes to college.

Wild Medicine

John 14:6
Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.'

Is it possible that your pharmacist could be a chimpanzee? That's not such a silly question. Naturalists are discovering that many animals use a variety of plants and other items to treat their illnesses. Animals often know about the medicinal properties of plants when modern medicine has yet to learn about them.

Recently naturalists noticed that one of the monkeys in the African preserve under their care had become lethargic, lost her appetite, and obviously had a severe gastric upset. A few hours after she became sick, she started munching on a native shrub that is not a normal part of the monkey's diet. She chewed the plant, swallowed the bitter juice and spit out the pulp. By the next afternoon her symptoms were gone and she was feeling better. After a little research, scientists discovered that local tribes use juices from the same plant to treat intestinal upset and loss of appetite.

Studies of the juices of a root that bears rub into their coats show that the bears are using an effective insecticide. Scientists have observed elephants, monkeys, birds and bears eating a variety of things that were not a normal part of their diet only to discover that the things being eaten had medicinal properties. Most amazing is that the animals know how best to take their medicine. If a leaf is best swallowed whole to kill intestinal parasites, it will be swallowed unchewed!

Who other than the Great Physician Himself could have taught the animals this medicine?

Last night I was asked what my most recent epiphany was. Golly. What a question to ask someone at 11 pm. I couldn't think of anything except something I wasn't going to say for fear of offending the person I was talking with, because it was something they had said that made me think of it.... Anyway, not much of an epiphany.

So I copped out and said something about the Pythagorean Theorim. I finally get it. After three or four years of trying to figure it out in highschool, I finally get it now after reading it once in college. But it was so cool.

And Tim told me this cool thing for finding square roots. See you take the one that you know, say 12. 12x12=144. Then you add twelve, 144+12=156, then you add the next number up, 13 in this case, and you have 156+13= 169, which is 13x13. cool stuff.

OOOh, I like Enya. She reminds me of Christmas. Probably because the last time I borrowed her from the library it was Christmas. But it's so pretty.
