Whoa, I'm sitting here in Church History class and I just realized that two weeks from this moment I'll be in surgery. That's nuts.

Oh my gosh, how good was Grey's tonight, seriously. I really like Dr. Hann. What's going to happen to Burk. I'm excited to see Christina and Burk apart for awhile. And, Addison and Alex, I wondered if that was going to happen. Is there a possibility that Addison is pregnant? I've heard that several places. Poor George. When is Izzy going to spend that money? And of course, I'm so happy to see Derek and Meredith together. I wonder how long it will last this time. It's not like they can go on forever without putting any McDrama into the DerMer plot line.

Anyways, I've had such a good Thanksgiving. Since this would be my last holiday meal (forever), my mom told me she would cook whatever I wanted. We ate with my aunt and uncle (Doris and Frank) and another family from church (the Starchers). We had such a good time. I really have so much to be thankful for. For this post I'll focus on one thing that I'm so thankful for this year. I have been blessed with so many good friends. This is a shout out to my three best girl friends. Allison, Lynsey, and Anne-Marie have been such a big part of my life. This year we were able to get together for a much needed reunion. It's funny, we acted just like we did in high school. Some things never change I guess. These are women of God who have definitely shaped who I am and I love them for that (even if they are the three least punctual people on the planet). So, thanks for being my friend. Here are some pictures from our reunion that I stole from Lynsey's myspace.

This one was taken in some booth-thingy at ChuckeeCheese. This shot was our fourth attempt to get a good picture. The little girl in the middle is Allison's, not just some random kid we picked up.

And this is a picture from our hotel room. Notice how Lynsey is molesting Anne-Marie. To be honest, she molested me a lot too. I had to sleep with one eye open, if you know what I'm talking about. I'm not sure what is going on there.

Well, after a very fast visit to Kansas City I am home for the holiday. I've noticed that my blog format doesn't look right on my parents' computer. It's supposed to be navy blue and pretty, not white and ugly. So, if it is ugly on your computer I'm sorry and I have no idea how to fix it.

I need a favor. A friend of mine from California has a friend who is trying to be the Big Lots elf for Christmas this year. He is running against a cute little girl and a little person, so the odds are stacked against him. So, go to http://biglots.com and click on the link to vote for the spokes elf and vote for Brian. Today is the last day to do this.

I hope you all have a super Thanksgiving eve.

Preaching is like giving birth. (Not that I know what birth is like, I'm just speculating)

School has been pretty hard lately. Yes, there's a lot of work to get done: papers, projects, sermons, reading. But that's not really what I'm talking about. I came into graduate school expecting to take a bunch of ministry courses so I could enter a church and know exactly what to do. However, I haven't really taken that many ministry courses and I have very few ministry to-do lists in my memory bank. The real work involved in this program is transformation. This seminary does not exist to simply fill minds with information. The point is to transform students into incarnational people who act as Christ acted, love as he loved, walk with people as he walked, and die and he died. It's easy to learn facts and do the right thing. We do it all the time. But I'm not called to do, I'm called to be. To be Christ in this world. This is infinitely harder.

I just saw a commercial advertising the release of Beverly Hills 90210 on DVD. Man, life is good. 22 episodes of Brandon and Kelly and Dylan and Brenda and Steve and Donna and David and Andrea. Oh yeah baby!

Did anyone catch Desperate Housewives tonight? That was nuts!

I'm still a little high from yesterday. I preached for the first time in my preaching class. I feel really good about how it went. Honestly, I loved it. I have to wonder if I hadn't grown up in the churches of Christ where women were so squelched, would I have wanted to be a preacher when I grew up? I guess I'll never know.

Grey's was pretty good last night, I guess. It's starting to get a little predictable, isn't it? When I saw the previews I knew that woman was going to be Derek's sister. And it was pretty obvious that Alex was going to go join the gyny squad. I need some surprises. Honestly, I just don't like Callie. She's such a weird-o. I can't have any compassion for her because she's so weird. I loved the ham and eggs metaphor. How great is that. I keep liking Addison more and more. And I'm a little mad at Burk. Just tell the chief about your stupid hand. Don't put people's lives in danger. Come on. I hope Christina gets is good from Bailey. And oh Derek and Meredith, take your time, all the time you need, just as long as you get together in the end.

Has everyone been following the Madonna adoption story? Any thoughts??
