Nothing to Blog About!!

Well for the first time since I have been here I had absolutely nothing planned for this past weekend, so it was very relaxing. I enjoyed it. Once and awhile, it is nice to have nothing to do. My most exciting plans were Friday night. After mopping up a bunch (and I mean A LOT) of toilet water because some punk kids flooded the toilet somehow, serveral of my coworkers and I stayed after work to play some volleyball in the gym. This is the second week in a row we have done this and it is a lot of fun, mostly because none of us are really good so we just have fun with it and goof around. I think it will turn into a weekly thing. Then most of us went out to eat at the Santa Fe Grill. Yummy. My only outings on Saturday were a walk to the library and a trip to Hobby Lobby. And Sunday I only ventured out of my "flat" for church. What a lazy weekend. I watched a lot of "Lost" and finished one book and started on another one. I am now reading Thomas Merton's "Seven Storey Mountain." I remember Perry raving about it, so I thought I would give it a try. I like it so far. I recently found out there is a Thomas Merton center somewhere nearby since he lived in a monestary in Kentucky. Maybe I should check it out sometime. After work today I was taught the game Dutch Blitz by my two Mennonite housemates. I was told that I can officially call myself a Mennonite now that I know how to play this game. I thought it was fun, especially after Emily stopped playing (she's a pro and kept beating us all). After that excitment I did dishes for almost two hours and now my back hurts. What an exciting life I lead!

I read "Seven Story Mountain." I don't remember too much about it, but I remember it was good.

So are you officially a Mennonite now?

I just wanted to say again how much I love "Lost." How many more episodes do you have to go in the first season?

I only have four episodes left of the first season! I plan on finishing it this week. And my housemate Ben has been downloading episodes from the second season on his computer, so maybe I can watch those too!

Woah! My classmates and I started a weekly volleyball ritual too AND I'm reading 7 storey Mt.!! It's Laura's copy and I read slow, but hopefully I'll finish at Thanksgiving break!

I told Darby and Jeanine that I would be haning out with you guys and they said they wanted to come anyways so it's cool....Did I tell you I think Darby's going to come out of the closet to me?
