He likes fingers ALOT.
HE is a lady killer.
Seattle is absolutely so gorgeous. I really really love this city. I just happened to be there on one of the best days. NO rain and NOT hot. A great combo. It really does rain a ton there....that is why I don't think that I could live there. This day was quite clear and you could see Mt. Rainer (look closely to the right). So incredibly beautiful.
Had a grand time with friend Derek Roth. We drove all around Seattle and spent the evening in Ballard. Plus got to see my favorite shop: Blackbird. Had a delicious dinner and even more delicious dessert. Homemade almost organic ice cream (is there any other dessert!?) Unfortunately they did not mix.
The rest of time in Seattle.....was alright. I wasn't feeling so great for part of it and for work I covered two positions instead of one. So I have to say I killed it. and I saw some dear friends...pete, tess, & dorian...I just wish I could have spent more time with them, esp in such a great city. Seattle you are loved.

3. Had a mini- Office Party. Almost all of season 1.
4. Then packed for Seattle....checking the flight status about a million times. But my flight was not delayed.

"God's promises are like the stars; the darker the night the brighter they shine” -David Nicholas"
God you continually amaze me with your constant devotion to my life, which is miniscule in regards to your Creation.
1 At this my heart pounds
and leaps from its place.
2 Listen! Listen to the roar of his voice,
to the rumbling that comes from his mouth.
3 He unleashes his lightning beneath the whole heaven
and sends it to the ends of the earth.
4 After that comes the sound of his roar;
he thunders with his majestic voice.
When his voice resounds,
he holds nothing back.
5 God's voice thunders in marvelous ways;
he does great things beyond our understanding.
6 He says to the snow, 'Fall on the earth,'
and to the rain shower, 'Be a mighty downpour.'
7 So that all men he has made may know his work,
he stops every man from his labor.
8 The animals take cover;
they remain in their dens.
9 The tempest comes out from its chamber,
the cold from the driving winds.
10 The breath of God produces ice,
and the broad waters become frozen.
11 He loads the clouds with moisture;
he scatters his lightning through them.
12 At his direction they swirl around
over the face of the whole earth
to do whatever he commands them.
13 He brings the clouds to punish men,
or to water his earth and show his love.
14 "Listen to this, Job; stop and consider God's wonders.
15 Do you know how God controls the clouds
and makes his lightning flash?
16 Do you know how the clouds hang poised,
those wonders of him who is perfect in knowledge?
17 You who swelter in your clothes
when the land lies hushed under the south wind,
18 can you join him in spreading out the skies,
hard as a mirror of cast bronze?
19 "Tell us what we should say to him;
we cannot draw up our case because of our darkness.
20 Should he be told that I want to speak?
Would any man ask to be swallowed up?
21 Now no one can look at the sun,
bright as it is in the skies
after the wind has swept them clean.
22 Out of the north he comes in golden splendor;
God comes in awesome majesty.
23 The Almighty is beyond our reach and exalted in power;
in his justice and great righteousness, he does not oppress.
24 Therefore, men revere him,
for does he not have regard for all the wise in heart?
PS. We are having a Hurricane.

2. My phone has been acting weird lately.
3. I get to see my friend Lori Beckmen four times this week. I am very happy about that.
4. I leave for Seattle in a week & I can't wait.
5. A new fantastic band for me: Slow Club. You can't be sad when listening to their stuff. Look them up & get ready to sing-a-long...."When I go" & "Me & You"
6. This is one of my favorite passages and often gets me through the rough spots: Lamentations 3:19-24.
19 I remember my affliction and my wandering,
the bitterness and the gall.
20 I well remember them,
and my soul is downcast within me.
21 Yet this I call to mind
and therefore I have hope:
22 Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
24 I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him."
Creator you are so beautiful & faithful to us.....

Yup. I had Gater Bites last night. My mother, father and brother John went out to dinner last night. We dined at the Black Hammock, which is actually about ten minutes from our house, but is right on Lake Jessup which is actually quite beautiful. It is really out in the middle of nowhere and has the feel of an out of the way diner. So my Dad ordered up some Gator Bites and I did eat some. It wasn't too bad...besides knowing it was alligator and not chicken. They were covered in Buffalo Sauce and dipped in Blue Cheese.... The ironical thing about it was that my dad had just caught a very small alligator in a retention pond in our neighborhood, (not the lake behind our house). And so they took it to Lake Jessup to release it, but a few night later we were eating the alligators out of that lake...Soooo Hmmmm.....
And then I went home and watched Jim Gaffigan. If you have not seen this you really should...one of the best lines...Socks...You know I'm dying for you sins right.

I am reading Anna Karenina right now. I truely love reading and this looks to be a really in-depth story. So I can't wait to really get into this one. I have heard it is a story of redemption, which to me, is the best kind. I am on page 78 out of 851. So that being said I should be finished it in about 8 or 9 years. I'll let you know how it turns out then.
