Ah, yes. It is still raining here. I absolutely love it. In fact, all the rain has made life seem a bit like a movie. I mean there are lots of great scenes from films that involve rain. Let's list them. Feel free to add at will...

Last night I had the weirdest dream I've had in a while. I was on a date with some guy. I don't know who he was, but he was very ghetto fabulous...complete with cornrows and basketball wear. Apparently in my dreams I forget about my love of the mohawk. So we're going to a carnival and he is trying to win my affections with his mad carnival game skills. Well, there was one game where they were giving away puppies and he wanted to win me a puppy. He wasn't good and lost. He wasn't happy about the loss and gets a gun from somewhere and shoots the game guy...in the head. I proceed to freak out and he runs after me. I find shelter in the tilt-a-whirl. Then I hear him screaming that if I don't come out he's going to start shooting people. I don't budge and I hear a gun shot. I start screaming and come out and he's all freakily telling me to come to him so we can leave. And then I tell him he's crazy and I'm not leaving to go anywhere with him. And he gets down on his knees and starts to cry telling me how much he loves me and he just wants to make me happy. Then we hear the police sirens and he points the gun at me..."What are you doing?" I say. "Making it so we can be together," he says getting up off of his knees and walking towards me. I back up until I hit a fence and can go no farther and then start to cry (of course). He stops and looks at me and grabs my neck (which you know is not good, back off the neck buddy). We hear the police on their bullhorns telling him to put down the gun. I whisper/cry, "please don't." He leans forward kisses me on my forehead and puts the gun in his mouth and pulls the trigger. I woke up with the final gunshot.

The majority of the day I have been in the sleepy town of Pickens. My great uncle died a few months ago and today all of the grandchildren were presented with the family musical instruments. My cousin Gabrielle received the accordian. Caleb got the guitar...and I was lucky enough to receive my great-great-grandfather's violin. Anyone who knows my family will know that I come from an extremely musical background. Anyone who has been lucky enough to attend one of my family reunions has been able to witness it. You see my family can't not sing or play something. They'll play spoons and pots if they have to. Hmm...yes. I love my family.

Sorry for the lack of updates. I've been a little under the weather the past few days. My creativity isn't where it usually is. Also, I almost hit a kid this morning on my way to work. He was crossing the road on his bike in heavy traffic not even looking. People were slamming on brakes everywhere...and then I come over the hill and there he was...I almost hit him and then he flicked me off and kept riding. It was the strangest thing. He couldn't have been more than nine. It was like he was daring people to hit him. I was shaking for an entire hour after the event. Anyway...I'm going to take some Benadryl and sleep for a bit.

Last night Haley, Simon, and myself went to see Harry Potter. Yes, very good. The best part though, came when we were watching the end credits. We're film nerds and want to pay respects to everyone that was a part of the movie. Plus it's fun to create commentary as the credits roll with different accents. Well there was a gentleman whose name was...get this: Ben Toogood. Hahahahasheeheehehehe. That's just TOO GOOD! HaHa...I crack myself up. Really you all have Ben Toogood to sit there and read this post! Hehe...I'll stop now.

I took one of those free IQ tests. My score was 126. And it said this about me...

Maybe I'm a weirdo, but I love days like these. I love it when it rains all day and you have to have a lamp on at all times. It makes me feel warm inside. And it makes me want to get a book and a blanket and curl up in my big blue chair and read. The only thing that would make it better, would be that it was winter time. My favorite season and my favorite day all rolled up in one "big happy bouncing rainy cold let's read a book and snuggle with my blankie" package.

So, remember that all nighter that a few of us pulled a couple of weeks ago? You know the one where we stuffed six people in Pippin and camped out in a driveway for about an hour? Then we watched the sun in all its glory rise?

Last night was freakin' awesome!!! Nick, Heidi, Kylie, Eric, Ken, Brooks, and myself journeyed to Atlanta last night for the Dieselboy/AK1200/Dara/Messinian show (Please journey to the Adventures in Creativity site for more details). I am now going to become a club kid following the lovely Planet of the Drums boys everywhere they go. Holy crap and a half! You can't not move when you hear this stuff. I am now a mad believer of the drum and bass. Long live electronica!!

This past weekend I rented an incredible movie, Elephant. Gus Van Sant wrote and directed. It's amazing...you should all go rent it. If you're feeling extra generous you could buy it for my birthday(August 5).

I've decided to start the Resplendent Fancy Random Award of the Day. These will not be daily as they are random.

I'm an introvert. I have problems opening up to people. My first instinct and desire when I come home in the evenings is to go into my room with my journal, listen to Sigur Ros and spend time in prayer and reflection of the day. This isn't bad, but it isn't always good. I don't invest myself in people like I should. God has given me the gifts of mercy, encouragement, and discernment. I'm good at giving these to people... I can listen to other people share, but I in return don't share back. I think on some level I'm afraid of letting myself out in the open...of not being really liked...so I keep it all to myself and only give fragments away at a time. Nick says that he thinks people like me are selfish...keeping a great mind locked away in a notebook. I don't know about a great mind, but here goes...

Hi, my name is Lanna and I love men with mohawks. Some people ask, "Lanna, what makes a good mohawk?" Well never fear for I am here to tell you. It takes someone special to pull off the classic mohawk.

Last night we went square dancing...at the Woodmen of the World building in Anderson. The Pacesetters, Anderson's own square dancing club, meets every Monday night in the building. We met the president of the club last Monday night(our Big Fish Adventure) at Denny's. They invited us to come and dance with them. We took them up on their offer. We were the youngest there by years(like 40 on up), but I don't think I've laughed so hard in a long time. These are the kind of dynamic memories we'll be telling our children. Everyone there came to welcome us and give us a hug. And we even got to dance a little. Brent found a new lady friend...Jeri Maddox...she was so hot in her denim puffy skirt and gold shoes. They introduced us as The Denny Squares since they met us at Denny's. Arent' they cute? It was the most fun for $2 that I've spent. Yes, that's right kids, we only spent $2 for 3.5 hours of unprompted fun. They also fed us...they fed us hot dogs, homemade cole slaw, potato salad, deviled eggs, baked beans and an entire table of homemade cakes and cookies. I felt like I was at my family reunion. We ended the evening with a friendship circle...a perfect ending. That is until Bob, told Nick to make sure that Kylie and I came back to the Beach Party in bikinis...eww.
