    Same ol' Same ol'

    Hello all. Sorry i haven't posted in a while. I feel like the past week has been pretty routine. Work, eat, sleep, work, eat, snowboard, sleep...

    I have been introduced to something even better then ebay... it's called Craig's List. I am sure most of you have heard of it, but in case you havent checked it out yet, go to www.craigslist.com and click on your city, in the right column. There you will find not only amazing free stuff (couches, washer, dryer, etc) but tons of local stuff that people are selling for really good prices. And, you can even barter with them a bit.

    It's great...

    Thank God for dad
    Well my dad just about saved my life yesterday. How, you ask?
    Well, in being a typical dad, he sent me a helmet to wear while i snowboarded. I have nothing against helmets, but it was definetly last on my list of required snowboard gear i wanted to get. But it was a really nice helmet and i thought, why the heck not?

    And yesterday, i crashed! Not just 'fell', but crashed... right on my head and butt. I think i broke my butt, but my head was okay! Thanks to my dad.

    Today i am feeling better though, and i don't need a wheelchair which i was sure i would need for the rest of my life, yesterday. But all is well, just a soar neck and a bruise on my butt.

    the most intriguing book
    hi folks.

    I need to talk to you about a story i have been interested in. It's called Beloved, by Toni Morrison. Has anyone read it? To me this is one of those books you must read and discuss..it cannot be read on it's own...too much symbolism and too deep. Let me know if anyone wants to discuss.

    I got interested in this story first as a movie. I saw at the library that Oprah starred in it so i was like, cool...so i rented it. And i tell ya it was the weirdest movie i think I have ever seen. At first i turned it off in the beginning because i didn't think i would like it. But something in me just had to know what was going to happen...so i finished it.. and then i couldn't stop thinking about the story so i decided to read the book. In this case, i am glad i saw the movie first because the book is written in typical Toni fashion - lots of detail, things dont make sense the beginning but all come together later, which is frustrating sometimes, but it keeps you intrigued. Anyway i am about a third of the way through and only read it in bits and peices because it's alot to take in.

    Hope i've inspired some of you to check it out!! Let me know if you do!

    to the north!

    hello all.

    Well, for those of you dying to know, I decided to start reading "YaYas in Bloom".

    Anyway, things are picking up at work now that we have decided to plan a tour to the North. We plan on sending a team to visit Whitehorse, Yellowknife, and Iqaluit in July. We feel we should go for a couple reasons: first, to finish the WAKE Tour, which was in 2003, and we went across all of the southern provinces, coast to coast, but havent made it up north yet. And second, we believe that God is doing something up there and we want to go see what it is.

    To the North!

    Which one?

    Thanks for the comments on the book club!

    Turns out, Audrey wants to read about the missionary doctor in ethiopia that fixes fistulas, ralph just reads blogs..all day..that's all he does.. and Heather is now reading about having not just ONE baby, but TWO! Keep reading folks!

    Part 2 of what i used to read as a kid: BOXCAR CHILDREN!!!!!! I loved them! does anyone share this love??????

    I finnished The Bluest Eye last night. Like I said, tough read. Sad, descriptive, alittle confusing at times but comes together in the end. Really makes you think though, which is a good thing.

    Now I have a dilemma though - should i continue on my educational classic route, with Song of Solomon, or go to the lighter side with the 3rd book of the YaYa series, YaYas In Bloom...?

    Jamie's Book Club

    Hey everyone

    well, I have decided to start Jamie's Book Club. It's a totally new thing that I have invented :)

    First of all, I will start by saying that I love books and always have. I went through a period in high school where i read 2 books a week for a while. They are so great. My first book addiction that i can fully remember, was the sweet valley series, of course 'kids' first, then 'twins'. Ooooh did i love those books.

    I am currently reading The Bluest Eye, by Toni Morrison, which is quite good but not an easy read for me. Tony is incredibly descriptive and I find my mind wandering at some points. But the story line is incredible, sad, and inspiring.

    What are you reading?
