Apparently I do. 😛
Anyway, the past couple of weeks have been pretty quiet. Well, if you don’t count yesterday and the week I spent back at the nougat factory.
Yesterday I went a friend’s wedding, which was pretty awesome. I’m a huge sucker for romance, particularly when it involves my friends, and this wedding was the epitome of romantic, in my opinion. I will readily admit to getting rather teary-eyed when they exchanged their vows. Besides being beyond adorable, the two of them clearly took the time to get to know each other and let their relationship mature before taking the plunge, so to speak. And most importantly, they’ve made God the focal point of the relationship. I’d say their marriage is off to a great start. 🙂
In other news, I’ve been following the Women’s World Cup for the past couple of weeks, and I have to say I’ve been enjoying it more than the men’s World Cup last year. For one thing, the French ladies played much better – even made it to the semifinals. This was a huge boost for French women’s soccer; at least, I hope so. I’m a tad disappointed they didn’t make it to the final, but considering that this was only their second World Cup and that in 2003 they didn’t even make it past the group stage, I’m more proud than anything. And USA is in the final, so I can’t complain too much. (Speaking of which, I better wrap this up quickly; the game starts in 20 minutes.)
Not much to say about my week at the nougat factory, except I learned to always make sure that when I bring a lock for my locker, I also bring the matching key. Otherwise I have to track down one of the maintenance guys to cut the lock. Oops… 😛
Other recently learned lessons include:
– Always bring a pair of tennis shoes to the barn. You never know when someone is going to organize a bareback trail ride down the river, and your boots will thank you.
– Never drink iced tea while watching a 2-hour movie unless you can pause it.
– Hot leather car seat covers and shorts don’t mix.
Other item of note: got Peter Furler’s solo album the other day, and it is excellent. Honestly, I originally bought it because I’m a Newsboys fan and I was mildly curious to see (or hear, rather) what Peter’s come up with since leaving the band. I was kind of expecting it to be fairly Newsboys-ish, musically, so I was (pleasantly) surprised to find that it’s not. He was really doing his own thing with this album. Lyrically, some amazing stuff (not that I was expecting any different). This is definitely going to be in heavy rotation for a good while. 🙂
OK, end of shameless plug. Off to watch soccer now…
