Just turn off the damn spell-check.
Tonight was Bible Study at the Jenkins household. Hurray for Thursdays. Anyone who wants to be fed really good food and Bible-type lessons, do say so and I will give you directs and a time.

Friday I'll be spending in a Gifted and Talented classroom. I wonder if I can fudge that for SPED hours? Also, I wonder how many assignments I've missed due dates for in my COMM class. Geez, I hate that class. I wish I could kick it.

My dad always volunteers me to pray at the end of the Bible Study. I think it's his small revenge for all the weeks I skip church, which I've been doing lately. I don't like praying aloud in front of people. I don't like it in the same way that I don't like Speech class. It really feels like I'm making a speech, not talking to God, you know? It's hard enough to pray silently, it's not like he talks to us the same way we talk to him. Any conversation has to be a speech, because God doesn't reply out loud or immediately. Which, by the way, is one of the things I hate about prayer. If I'm talking to him, shouldn't he be talking back? At least some music should play in my head to let me know he's listening.

I don't doubt he IS listening, I'm just saying, he's making it hard for me. *scowl*

Oh well. I guess I wouldn't want the devil to be allowed to talk to me like I talk to other people. Maybe that's the rule: God remains silent so that the Devil doesn't have the right to talk either. See, that would make sense to ME. Too bad it doesn't just say that in the Bible somewhere.

Re: Direct Sean??? Is this a joke??

Thanks for letting me know that you're previously located and engaged. It makes me feel good to know my friends occasionally do things that are unabashedly Christian, and that just because Atheism is in right now doesn't mean all my friends have cognitive disabilities when it comes to loyalty...

I'm not bitter, I'm concerned!!

Re: Welcome to CA

Lol, okay some explanations.

First, by "previously engaged" I meant "that's why you're not able to come to this Bible study, because you are previously engaged at Bible Studies in other locations." See? So much shorter.

"Cognitive Disabilities" is the codephrase Sean and I use in place of the word "retarded".

Re: Welcome to CA

How about 'just plain stupid'? That seems to get the point across.

Re: Welcome to CA

Just plain stupid works. I was doing some studies for my SPED class on how to refer to those with disabilities (see that? not "handicapped people"--"those with disabilities") and Sean latched onto that, so now it's a habit.

Re: Welcome to CA

But congrats on the engagement! *gets out the noisemaker* Yaaay more of my friends tying the knots around their neck ("I'd be equally as willing for a dentist to be drilling than to ever let a woman in my life..."--Rex Harrison)

Re: well.. now I feel retarded.. lol

Oh...Then, you are not congratulated.

Re: well.. now I feel retarded.. lol

I meant I feel retard, even though I'm not retarded.. I am engaged though.. this conversation is getting more and more confusing..

Re: well.. now I feel retarded.. lol

Right, then, your turn to blog, and here are your congrats back.

Subject? Obviously, it's about your... do they call them blogs here? No, probably journal entry?

I like that last paragraph.

I was almost tempted by the offer of food! : O
lol

Your darling Oliver.
