There were some complaints as to my lack-luster attempts at posting as of late. So here is a post for you to read:
This evening I found out that a dear friend of mine died of Pancriatic cancer this morning. I only heard yesterday that he had it and was planning on visiting him in the hospital this evening. I am glad that he did not live in suffering for the three to six months the doctors predicted but I miss him already. He used to say 'Amen'at particularily moving parts of the church service. He was a very generous and kind man. It will be weird to go to church and not see him anymore. He would always grasp my hand with two of his and ask me how I was and he was truely interested. I remember when I was taking German and as he grew up in Germany mom invited him over to help me practice. He was very patient with me but expected the best. The verse about storing up your treasures in Heaven makes me think of him, for though he didn't have alot of money, he was very generous with what he had. He loved puzzles and would ask me riddles everytime he saw me. I would seldom be able to figure them out, He was very sharp mentally for a man his age. Last week he was suposed to share his testimony in my sunday school class and he didn't show up. I wish I could have heard him speak one last time before he died. I wish I could have thanked him for being who he was. IT is interesting to compare how I feel about his death to how I felt about my grandfathers death. The funerals of a bitter selfish old man and that of a man who spent his energy loving others will be very different. I know there will be a packed out church for Mr. Wandelt. He loved people and they knew it. I need to live my life so that people will say that about me when I die.

People say that msn disrupts their life and doesn't let them get anything done. I agree on a certain level, but msn has allowed me many opportunities to have meaningful conversations with my friends. You can talk to multiple people at the same time and the conversation can be as deep or as fluffy as you wish. Now that I don't have access to my msn I feel cut off from my Guelph community.:(

Apparently in Malasia(? I think that was the country) There are morality laws that stipulate that it is illegal to hug and kiss in public. A Chinese couple are going to trial and could face a year in prision for an infraction of this law.

Re: Please forward to Bill Gates

Dear Bill Gates,

I am not enclosing my resume, because I think it's irrelevant. I've been fired from almost every job I've ever had. My best friends from Elementary school are both in prison. I am writing because if I were as rich as you I would have filters in place, people watching the thousands of incoming messages, looking for letters like this one - bringing those letters to my attention. I can save the world. I do not want a salary. Listen.

You have billions of dollars, and I will spend as much of it as I can. I don't know what I will spend it on, and that's part of the point. Tomorrow I'll wake up and I'll want to fund robotics research to make prettier butterflies that land on the fingers of children. I'll want to give the world another credible Loch Ness Monster sighting, another downed UFO in the desert, another moon landing.

Tomorrow I'll wake up certain that money can make the world into the best kind of theme park, where nobody knows they're being had, where the suspension of disbelief is reinforced by seeing everything on the news at night. The news at night should have more smiling faces.

We need to pay Disney the standard product placement fee, but instead of a product we should promote our heroes. We need Mickey Mouse to say "Let me tell you about Chuck Norris." There is a whole generation of children growing up today who don't know about Chuck Norris.

I want to start a program down there at Microsoft, where every week five hundred random employees are selected to spend ten thousand dollars of your money each, on making the world more perfect. I want to approve budget increase of fifty thousand dollars for the janitor's idea to build a chess computer that loses every game and hates you for it. A computer that is the worst kind of poor loser.

I want to put satellites into orbit that do nothing but make life better for children, that broadcast an unending documentary we finance where we interview old women and ten year olds about their best friends, where we talk to the CEOs of fortune 500 companies and Tom Cruise and they tell us about that summer by the lake. I want to save the world. Money is so awesome.

I am not sure why, but I am really annoyed today. I watched this really stupid movie when I got home from school and it was a waste of time. I got up feeling mad at the world and people who change their plans:( Oh well I will be fine tomorrow. My sister is here for the night and going to take me to Niagara falls tomorrow to take in a resume. I need to write my cover letter. I need to get my act together. Have you ever noticed that half the people you see look angry. I hope I am not becoming one of those people who has perminantly furrowed brows.

Subject:The Infamous list
Mood: contemplative

You asked me if I had a list, well here it is...
-Christian-at a similar place in his spiritual life as I am and moving in a positive direction
-Someone who inspires me spiritually and I can have good open discussions about faith matters - intellectual
-Someone who understands where I am coming from emotionally and I can share my struggles with but doesn't just let me complain
-Someone who will be a spiritual leader in our home
-Loves children-good balance of discipline and fun, doesn't leave it all to me to raise them
-Someone with a sense of adventure to encourage me to stretch out of my comfort zone
-Someone who loves the country and nature-hiking, gardening, animals
-Someone who is kind-thinks of things to encourage others on a regular basis

There you have it. My list as of June 18th 2004. I found it reading through my Journal today. My real one not this one.

"When I Fall"

When I fall, I fall hard.
Sends shivers through my body, and I lay down my guard.
I'm pure devotion and sweet emotion.
I feel it all when I fall.

When I make love, well, I love strong.
I let go of everything till everything I have is gone.
It's endless passion, it's everlasting.
I feel it all when I fall.

If you don't feel the way I feel,
An' we can still be friends.
But after all that I've been through,
I can't go down that road again.

'Cause when I hurt, well, it runs deep,
An' it's more than just a broken heart or tears down my cheek.
I feel like dying; my soul is crying.
I feel it all when I fall.

[Instrumental Break]
(Oh, when I fall.)

Oh, well I'm pure devotion and sweet emotion.
I feel it all when I fall. (I can feel it all.)
Baby, it's your call when I fall.

Subject:Geek Initiation
Mood: loved

So the other day my lover informed me of my newly established geek status. I never considered myself a geek nor was there any reason too. However I now have 4 email adresses that I check every morning, I spend hours reading web comics, I have a tee-shirt staring a cartoon character from an obscure web site, and I play board games frequently. I know I still have a long way to go but I supose this is a start. Now I must learn to talk in completely confusing computer lingo and fantasize about star wars characters.

Subject:Christmas rambling
Mood: crazy

Christmas is over for another year! I can't believe how fast it came and went. It was a good Christmas overall. My Aunts friend from Montreal came and it was interesting to see him again as I don't really remember meeting him the first time. He makes Canadian film board movies. One of which I have seen part of. I have decided that I want to see some more English movies. I really like the fact that the people are normal and not all plastic-y looking. Some of my favorite movies are British, such as Calendar girls, Saving Grace, and The Full Monty. Strongly recomend all three. I love English shows too. Like The Darling Buds of May-which I hardly ever watch cause I don't get channel 17. anyways this doesn't have much to do with Christmas anymore but rambling it is:)
so long til later
