Welcome to the Weekend Update! Where to start? Well first on I had the privilege of attending Jason and Kelly's wedding. Can we say breathtaking? Absolutely surreal. I was expecting for fairies to come dancing out of the woods to celebrate with the newly married couple. Next weekend? Dana and Jeff's wedding...yay!

Taking a break from the moving. I thought I'd update you guys on the weirdness of pet obsession. I went to the pet store to pick Max up some stuff for the big move. And I see kittens for sale. I go over to look and I see the price of "$599.00" Umm...excuse me? So I ask the sales guy:

I've had a heavy day today. Lots of thought and frustration. I was asked this afternoon by a friend, "Lanna, what's God doing in your life?" Normally this wouldn't have bothered me. I've been asked many times and have asked this question many times. Today it made me mad. My first reaction was "can't you see what He's doing in my life?" I don't want people to have to ask what He's doing or what He's done. It should be oozing from me. Of course there are some things that cannot be shown physically, but the after-effects should be glowing from tasks that I do. Something has to set us, as Christ Followers, apart from the non-believer, otherwise something is wrong.

I'm not sure how to describe last night/this morning. I've just had the strangest 36 hours of my life. Yes, I've been up for 36 hours. I haven't done this since my freshman year of college. Actually, last night felt like college. You see, it all started with a cryptic phone message from Nick declaring that I must find him and Kylie before 3:16am(what?) and bring my camera. We assembled a crew of 6 people and the night panned out to be trying to track down the 7th friend to the point of knocking on all of his windows and screaming his name. I sat in the car. This felt a little too much like being in college, trying to bring down friends before we got arrested. There were many reasons for us to be arrested.

We had an impromptu Epiphany Lounge last night. Lee, Nick, Kylie and myself feasted on Nick's Grape Leaves (they were of the magic variety...you'll have to ask him) and potatoes. We were later joined by Heidi. Once again Kylie and I got to relish in our equally bad date stories for the sake of a laugh. I think perhaps we were separated at birth.

I've been at my parent's house since 10:00AM. I'm cleaning out my childhood bedroom so that I can move back in. I did not realize what a pack rat I was. I've gone through about 10 boxes of stuff today. Notes from middle school, pictures from magazines that I loved, old collages that I made, every art project from elementary school on through highschool, every valentine, receipts, happy meal toys, notebooks from every subject from every year that I was at school, crappy presents that I couldn't bear to part with because I loved the person that gave them to me, souveniers from vacations, magazine upon magazine, etc. There's lots more...mostly crap. I've narrowed the boxes down to 2. The rest is either in the trash or on its way to the Goodwill.

Last night I pulled out all of my pictures from high school until the present. I decided to put them all in order and organize them into a box. Five hours later I was still working on the project. A normal person would have left it to finish until later. Not me. I couldn't stop until it was done. 2:30am I finally make it to my bed, only to have it filled with weird dreams. In the first karl, lee, and I were on our way to wal-mart and blockbuster. For some reason I was driving lee's jeep. The whole time he's freaking out because apparently I scare him with my driving. In the next, I'm going to prom...with someone I don't know. I won a contest to go back to prom. It was weird. But hey, at least all of my pictures are organized. And I got a rockin' album to put all of my photograpy in. I'm thinking that maybe I should post some pictures here. But seeing as I don't have a digital camera...I'll have to scan. And that could take ages.

Last night we had an Epiphanynuit at Kylie's. Lots of fun. I absolutely love these people. I've hardly known them for a month and they're already planning me a birthday trip. We've decided to make this summer, ADVENTURES IN CREATIVITY. Lots of fun stories are sure to come!

So, "Troy" should be called "Smut". If I were a man, I would be offended. It's was like looking at a meat rack. I really think the producers decided "Let's put in an outrageous amount of nudity of two hot male actors...just in case the movie stinks. That way we'll still make money." Well, the movie stinks. Bad editing, poor acting, having to cover my eyes from a naked man, and cornball lines all made for a waste of $7. I mean I'm not usually one of those girls who struggles with physical issues, but really Brad Pitt is hot enough as it is without showing off his body. I stared at the curtain and the pretty little star lights that I never knew existed...men I feel for you, I now know how it is to bounce eyes.

My mother asks me "Why don't you talk about boys anymore? What's happened?" Why don't I talk about boys? I don't talk about boys because there's no use in it. I don't have one...therefore I don't need to be talking about them. Talking about them makes me want one and to go back to the first statement you'll see that I don't have one. You know that whole pursuit/response thing...I want to keep my role as the responder. So I won't be talking about boys, thank you.

Karl and I watched Chasing Liberty last night. It was...okay. It didn't hurt that there was an extremely hot British guy as the lead in the romance department. The plot was, of course, very predictable. We knew what was going to happen before it happened, but we're girls and we like this sort of thing. Why? Because we all want a great romance. We all want to be swept off our feet and pursued. Still waiting...

I think that I have discovered the tree hugger in me. Earlier today I was driving around and just looking. Normal fashion of me, I spaced out at a red light. Two birds flew past me. It occured to me how unnatural it seemed. I mean the birds are great, but everything else around them was manmade. Then I got mad because they weren't meant to nest in street lights and in the bullseye of the Target light. They were meant to nest in trees. They've just adjusted to their surroundings. But should they have had to? I could get on a soapbox right now, but I'll save you and me both some time. Of course I'm not going to boycott progress, but I can feel that it's just not right.

Last November, a friend and myself were out in the backwoods of Honea Path. We were taking pictures to make a book for our friend Torrie who had recently departed. We found this cute little log on the side of the road. So we thought..."Hey, let's sit on the log and take a picture."

Well, I'm joining the others in the quest to entertain people through a blog. Perhaps my life will be interesting enough to keep you coming back for more. For the welfare of all, I will try and be as unpretentious as possible.
