Everything Is Just So Funny!

So today we ordered pizza (me and Danielle and Lori...our new roomie couldn't, she had plans) Anyway, we didn't want trick-or-treaters to come to the door, so we decided that we'd turn off all the lights. But, the problem was that then we couldn't see our food. So, we decided that we'd find all the candles that we had, and eat by candlelight. There was just one problem....we had nothing to light them with. So, Danielle, always the clever one, decided that we could turn on the oven, and light a piece of paper or something by touching it to the element. It actually worked!!! I'm kinda surprised that we didn't burn the house down!!

AND, you know, I'm always friends with the rowdy people. Really, it never fails, I'm always with the loud people. Don't get me wrong, I love it, I think it's hilarious. So, yesterday I went to the football game with some of my friends from Prov, and one of her brothers and his friends, and this other chick...anyway this group of eight of us (I knew about half) Anyway, one of my friends is from Alberta (her name is Teresa), so naturally is a Calgary fan, guess who was playing....Calgary. So, she decided that she was going to make a "I love the Stamps" sign. We'll we couldn't let her get away with that, so my friend Gina made a sign that said "I love the Bombers" and on the other side it said "I'm with Stupid" Anyway, they got a bit of attention because of their signs, two interviews for newspapers, and three times on the Jumbo-tron. It was soooo funny. Then today, my friend Teresa was in the mall, and some guy came up to her and said "hey, you're that Stamps fan!" I laughed so hard when she told me that. It was a really good time.

Sometimes I think I just have too much fun!

What A Bus Ride!

I had an experience getting to school today. I missed the first bus...I guess I can't run quite fast enough. So I waited...and waited. When a bus finally came, I had to stand at the front. This old man was sitting in the spot in front of me, and he says to me "Do you know how you can tell the difference between a guy and a girl?....Guys have their shirts buttoned up properly." (I had a shirt on that had the top couple buttons open), I kinda laughed, but I didn't really know what to say. Then he says.."actually you can tell the difference just by looking at their faces. do you think people can tell that you're a girl when they look at your face?" I didn't know what to say to that, so I said "I sure hope so!" He told me that people could tell by looking at my face that I'm a girl. (I was relieved that's all he said about that) But, then the weirdest part, he sticks his hand out toward me, palm down, I didn't know what he was doing, it was like he wanted to shake my hand, but his was palm down!! So I kinda put my hand on top of his, and he says "Bless you!" So, I was really confused, but I've definitely never been blessed on a bus before!! After that, I was happy that I had to move toward the back of the bus, I had no idea what the next thing out of his mouth was going to be, and I didn't really want to find out.

Eventually I got a seat, so I sat, minding my own business. Then the person behind me had to get up to let the other person out of their seat. In the process he ended up elbowing me hard in the back of my head. And, when I was getting off the bus I got hit in the butt by the person next to me. What a trip. I don't think I've ever had a trip like that one!

Gotta love bus stories!!

Two Down

Well. I'm not a coffee drinker, but I haven't had too much of a choice lately. I'm past exhaustion. Well, I need to do homework, I just thought you'd all like to know that I've had two cups in the last hour and a half and one last night...I might be becoming an addict.

God is Good.

When I think of all the things that I want/need, I really need to stop thinking about myself, and what I want. Instead of getting angry at God because He doesn't give me what I need or want, I really need to start thinking about the character of God. God is good. I can't even fathom what that all implies. God really doesn't withhold things because He doesn't want to give them to me, He does it because He is good. I know it's the classic line "God can see the whole picture and you can't". It's really true though. I really think that it hurts God to have to say "no Kendra, I wish I could give that to you now, but I can't, just wait, I know there's more...better. I am Good, trust me". I think it's the last part I have trouble with...really believing that God is good, and that it really should be enough of a reason to trust.

(this was our topic for Bible study's been on my mind)

Ok, I just had to add this. I was listening to the radio, and they played the song "Unanswered Prayers" by Garth Brooks. I just laughed because yesterday at the bible study the dude that leads it (actually one of the pastors at the church) quoted this song, and it was funny because this is about the last song you would expect him to know (he's not at all the country type!) The bold part is what he quoted.
Unanswered Prayers
by Garth Brooks

Just the other night at a hometown football game
My wife and I ran into my old high school flame
And as I introduced them the past came back to me
And I couldn't help but think of the way things used to be

She was the one that I'd wanted for all times
And each night I'd spend prayin' that God would make her mine
And if he'd only grant me this wish I wished back then
I'd never ask for anything again

Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers
Remember when you're talkin' to the man upstairs
That just because he doesn't answer doesn't mean he don't care
Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

She wasn't quite the angel that I remembered in my dreams
And I could tell that time had changed me
In her eyes too it seemed
We tried to talk about the old days
There wasn't much we could recall
I guess the Lord knows what he's doin' after all

And as she walked away and I looked at my wife
And then and there I thanked the good Lord
For the gifts in my life

It's A Gooder

Take this life
Make it yours.
Do what’s right
Oh Lord.
You got to take this, take this life.
You got to make it, make it right.

Take my flesh
Take my pride
Take the sins I try to hide
Take my doubts
Take my fears all the pain and all the tears
And I fall down on my knees Lord
I’m begging Ya please Lord
Take the shame
Take the blame it’s all the same.

From "Take This Life"

"I Have An Ovary On My Sist"

That's what some lady in one of my math classes told me today. I almost burst out laughing...then I realized what she said...not funny. But I was definitely distracted while she talked to me about it for the next five minutes. I don't remember another word she said.

I Had A Dream

I had a very funny dream last night. I won't tell you guys the whole's rather long and very random. But in it I was very angry at Marcia because she was applying for a job (no I wasn't jealous) at St. Malo doing penguin rescue for the winter. Anyway, I was angry at her because I hadn't known that she was applying for the job, she said that she wasn't really telling anyone...but everyone knew!! So mostly, she just wasn't telling me. Oh yeah, and another funny part was when Cherise was accused of trafficking drugs by someone who was really high. Hmmm, what a funny dream. I don't normally have funny dreams like that, made my day!

So Funny!!!

So, to tell a story Lori style...I got shocked today with 2000 volts!!! But actually it wasn't a big deal because there was a huge resistance on the power source, so the current was really low (when the current is high, that's when you get hurt). It was actually really funny, the lab director was in showing us how to hook everything up, and he just grabbed the cords and shocked himself...just for fun!! It was so weird. Then, he was talking to my professor and they were talking about the pranks they used to pull when they were TA's. They would do demonstrations, and purposely hook things up wrong. Then they would ask for a volunteer to help, and when they would touch the thing they would get shocked!! So, note to self, never volunteer to help my professor with anything! Hmmm, what a funny lab.

I Ran Away

Maybe one day I'll stop running away from problems. Hopefully it'll be soon, I'm tired of doing this to myself. Why is it easier to assume the worst about ourselves and others, even when we really know what the truth is. It's easier to believe a lie than the truth.
