“2 Posts, last published on Sep 27, 2006” That stinks.

Man, oh man, it’s been far too long, hasn’t it? Why can’t I be as cool as Lindsay and blog every 48-72 hours? Here’ some random/obscure thoughts (the best kind), latest updates, and things to make you giggle from 18 degree and windy Central Kentucky…

- Happy two week birthday to Taylor Renee…cool middle name your parents gave ya kiddo.
- Lindsay and I are running in a half marathon in Nashville, TN on April 28…holy buckets I’m scared.
- The show “What Not to Wear” is hopelessly mean. Entertaining and timesucking yes, but thoughtlessly rude without a doubt. You’d dress pretty nice too if someone GAVE you an expensive wardrobe several times a week, wouldn’t you? How about a response show to them - What Not to Put Your Worth in? oh burn.
- For those that are still laughing at the idea of me wearing a paper hat and apron while making real milkshakes and serving pizza – I no longer work at the delicious pizza joint called Tastebuds. I was only there for about 2 days and had to bail. They needed help at lunch times and it wasn’t gonna work out for scheduling with schoolwork, chapels, etc. So since late Septemberish, I have been working at the Student Center here at Asbury. The Student Center houses the cafeteria, gym, workout facilities, racquetball courts, lounge, etc. “You’d like to check out equipment for ping pong? Sure thing, your student id please and sign here…” I LOVE the job. Great team to work with (there’s ten of us), great place on campus, and a good opportunity to get reading done when it’s slow at night. It’s awesome.
- For Christmas my friend Shawn gave me an ORIGINAL motion picture soundtrack/score ON VINYL for the best Picture of 1976…my favorite movie of all time – Rocky. I want to frame it and show it off for the rest of my life. Thanks a trillion Shawn, you rock bro.
- While in Sacramento during Christmas time I heard about a new Carl’s Jr./Hardees commercial – the one with the cab drivers in Philly, ya know? We don’t have it out here, but anyway – I find it very funny. Rest assured, I still will never be one of their customers, but will laugh when I hear, “Whashca doin, eating a boiga?”
- We have made it an official tradish – The FIRST thing we do when we get to Sac is hit up Truxel In n’ Out. Goin on 2 times strong now…it so GO TO. Why is it so great?
- What’s the difference between impersonation and impression?
- I saw Rocky Balboa twice over the Christmas break. It was better the second time. I give it a 6.5-7 tops. Some great scenes, some REALLY cheesy scenes. Loved Cuff and Link at the beginning though.
- A few months ago I went to pick up Lindsay from school and there were a few students who knew her on the sidewalk waiting to be picked up. As we rolled by I heard one of them shout to the group, “Hey man, Miss A’s husband look (no not a misspell, he did not pronounce the S” like Lionel Richie!”
- Since the latest facial hair acquisition someone told me I look like Scott Bayo from Charles in Charge. Imdb him and disagree along with me.
- I hate when you are rinsing a spoon in the sink and the water hits it square on and it sprays all over your shirt and pants.
- Why is the Cosby show SO GOOD? Why do I want to be like Bill as a father?
- Cut and Paste is the best invention of the 20th century, no question.
- Shoutout to Paige Jennings…a bit over due sista, sorry.
- The bendable/foldable headrests on United airplanes are magnificent in aiding the plane nap.
- Since the last few weeks of Hebrew Intro I have made the switch back to the pencil. Kinda weird to go back, but man the eraser is necessary like none other.
- Mike and E cruised through Wilmore after the convention in Orlando and we hung out for a few days. It was SO AWESOME. At the same time, it was so weird to have a piece of home right there in front of us. It was like they or our home was out of context, ya know? They didn’t seem to fit. We had a blast showing them around town, playing poker, laughing, and watching reruns of The Office. Below is in my opinion our best pic we have ever taken. Love and miss you guys!

Oh my.... I miss you guys.

The fact that you've moved to Kentucy and now are compared to both Lionel Richie and Scott Bao does have me a bit concerned.

Did you know I've checked this blog weekly since September, hoping, praying, wishing for an update. Intercession was key in getting this blog up to date :)

Please keep us updated on how school is and other funny observations of yours, including "Cut and Paste is the greatest invention of the 20th century".... lol!

Jeremiah said...

And why wouldnt you be the first to comment???
I love it.
If you have honestly been checking weekly - holy buckets, you rock. Thats quite a bit of faith sista. Take care out there Brooke!

Shawn said...

I have not been checking weekly. I like to live by the beliefe that yu ar as lazy as me, so I know there is no need to check but maybe once every 3-5 months. In reality I know that it is because you are 10 times more busy than I will ever be, but I don't need to think about that.

By the way, I cut and pasted this whole comment in :-)

Shawn said...

PS, that cut and paste thing was a lie (if you could not tell by the horrible speling mistakes).

It was a, humor joke.

Anna Fleming said...

How fun it was to finally read your blog. However, something is lacking. No mention of "24"?! Can it be true? Are you unable to get "24" in Wilmore?????????? I'm very dissapointed!
