Another Time Perhaps

I was inspired to obtain an updated photograph of my self last night. It was...spur of the moment. I was quickly in my car, racing towards 7-11. Purchasing a small, disposable camera I ventured to my apartment (I'm not living there this week) and interrupted my roomate's viewing of what appeared to be the 'Donnie Darko'. I wanted to be assured that a good picture would turn up so five minutes later I was in possesion of 27 undeveloped shots of myself, prancing around my living room. I know that sounds a bit vain...but it was not my intention, and besides, I don't have to argue my case before YOU.

heh

Moving on, I now own 27 recently developed (Thanks to a Mr. Frederick Meyers) photographs of myself, much of them foolish and full of poppycock.

I slept in until 6 am this morning. I'm such a louse.

Today was nice, it was very nice. What a playground we've been given to run around in. Work was pleasant. There was free food, roadtrips, visits to the Department of Enviornmental Quality, etc.

I'm becoming more and more anxious to leave this nation for my time in Sweden. It's not so much to see the world...I really don't have a passion for that, but the passion lies in the people. The opportunity. The fellowship of believers and the chance to spend 10 months of my life dedicated to Christ alone. I really don't know what is going to happen, how I will change, or where I'll end up but none of that matters. I walk with the Wise therefore I shall walk in peace.

I believe we are going to have troops in Sudan within the next 2 months. That place is going crazy. Sad, we're letting Rwanda happen all over again. http://www.sudan.net/news/posted/8987.html

Speaking of troops and danger and whatnot...how about that Iran, eh? Europe's "soft diplomacy" isn't quite working at this point. Hmm....If I'm not mistaken...there is a large western army right next door...

Ah, the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry?

Ecclesiates 7:13 "Consider what God has done: Who can straighten what he has made crooked?"

I'm leaving.
