could you repeat that... about 100 more times:)

sometimes i think that my greek book likes to arrange it's english sentances in the most confussing means possible so i have started keeping note of the fun sentances within it. so far the winner of the "write the most confussing english sentance possible" contest is section 489: on greek adverb formation...
"the comparative dgree of adverbs is like the acusative singular neuter of the comparative degree of the corresponding adjective; and the superlative degree of the adverb is like the accusative plural neuter of the superlative degree of the corresponding adjective."

december 9, 1991

one day as i was walking past the annual book giveaway tables, i saw a "banner"(the magazine put out by the crc;) with the words REHOBOTH written across the bottom. i thought hey that's cool... and one of the girls on the front cover used to french braid my hair... that's even cooler! i decided to leaf through it in search of more familiar faces. to my suprise i came across a picture of myself... well sort of (i'm the white one in the background with the turned up nose) anyway, i found it quite exciting...

(sung to the tune of "canaan days" from joseph and the technicolour dreamcoat)

"those summer days, we used to know, where have they gone, where did they go, raise your berets to those summer days"

so it is now mid-march and the snow is yet to leave the ground outside my window...now dont get me wrong, there are many things that the snow is great for...

skiing, making the outside look very pretty, falling on people's nose and eyelashes (which of course inspires a song), building forts, sleeding, making snow-balls, keeping food cold (and kimber has a handy thermometer that says when it is safe to keep food outside), throwing people in, slidding across when it becomes ice, snowboarding, and the list could go on...

but these are all wonderfull things in january and february... the long and short of it... i really want spring to come... come spring come... i miss wearing shorts!

yesterday while running errands i suddenly had a very large craving for some tim's coffee and a honey cruller (mmm... so good!) so i pulled up to the drivethrough, orded my items of choice and pulled up to the window with cash in hand ready to pay, but as i was reaching my hand out the window the nice tim's worker told me that the person behind me had it covered. this totally and completly confused me, especially after i looked behind me a realized that i had no idea who the person in the black pick-up was, but she insisted and so i kindly thanked her and told her to thank the kind person who had baught me such a wonderful treat. so thank you again to the random person in the pick-up truck! i very much enjoyed my coffee and my honey cruller... you made my day!
