It happened just like last time...

We went out to a Rock related event, (this time it was The Venue, last time it was Remnant), then we hung out and got food afterwards. We were only gone a few hours both times. When we get home I go to the bathroom and laura goes to the bedroom...and then I hear "Liko!!!" Yeah, more little guinea pigs in the cage, little bit of a bloody mess. This time there were 3. This is hilarious because I was just thinking today, (when I was giving Chessy a good pet and telling her how obese she is) "Man, it would be funny if you popped out more babies." Lo and behold...... They're really cute and soooo tiny. Apparently we can't read genitalia very well because we have a little bit of a mystery: Who's the daddy? Just in case, we took "Jasmine" out of the cage and renamed "her" Captain Freak-Out. He/She is freaking out in the box right now.

Possible names:
um, and Bryan...

We're going for names that can easily be changed to the other gender...since, as we said, we can't read genetalia very well....or else this wouldn't have happened.

So...anyone want a guinea pig??

[S.A.D!?] ...but I'm not sad!

In light of it being valentine's day and all, I thought it would be an appropriate time to comment on dating.

It bothers me how a lot of people seem to think that finding a significant other or special someone is the point of their lives, like having a boyfriend or girlfriend (or whatever) is what you need to be happy. I think it's a hideous lie from popular culture. It's like if you aren't dating, you're a loser! Someone must always be interested in you and if you aren't in a relationship you should have just gotten out of one, and looking for another one to try again. Laaame! Why can't you just be happy by yourself?

I've gotten a lot of comments, especially recently, about how I'm still single, how I never have a boyfriend or date a lot or things don't work out... I've had more than one friend ask me, "don't they have Christian dating sites or something?" Why yes, yes they do. I'm 23 years old, I'm not desperate! That goes right back to the part where people seem to think I'm not normal for staying single and I'd be happier or have a better life with a boyfriend. In 1 Corinthians 7:34 Paul says, "...An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord's affairs: Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world—how she can please her husband." I'm more preoccupied at the moment with figuring out what to do with my life and how to fulfill God's purpose for me.

What's even funnier to me is that even my church has to touch on this. There was a class advertised in the bulletin called "Single: Blessing or Curse?" It seems that so many people struggle with this idea that being single means they have a problem (and maybe they do...) but I saw that and said, "Blessing!" (easy answer) and was done with it...I could teach that class! I've come to realize that this is how God wants it for me right now and I'm actually happy about it.

I want to grow, I want to see the world, I want to see where God leads me & I don't want preoccupation with boys to hold me back. I want to discover where my heart and passion for serving God is and then, maybe, God will give me someone who has a heart and passion like mine too. Until then, I think I'm better off going it alone...

I prolly shouldn't have registered Green...

I came across this cartoon and as cute and funny as it is, it makes a good point. Those 2 seem to be the only ones the media cares about (wait, who's running?? a woman AND a black!?! wow...) Excuse me, but have we forgotten where our focus should be??

I never really cared to know much about politics until this election, but with so much is happening and so many opinions flying around I've actually done my own research. No really, this is a big step for me. I'm over the whole Barack and I went to the same highschool thing--definitely not a good enough reason to vote for the man. I don't agree with a lot of things he supports. I'm not gonna go off telling you who I'm voting for, or who you should vote for, but I just encourage you to look at where a candidate stands on the important issues.

this weekend.


After my first day of true Antique Store action I wanted to pass out but I have my responsibilities to the kids so I didn't. Laura and I cleaned the cage (same old, same old) and went to the Living Room in Old Town with Caleb to see Shem and Tobias play. I'd have put in a website or something here, but i don't think they have one. They should though because they sounded rather good. At least, laura and I enjoyed them. They're playing at the Living Room in Point Loma 2/6 and back at the one in Old Town 2/8. I love live music.

I always say that they're my least favorite day because I work 2 jobs one after the other, but they've turned out really fun in recent history. I mean, we got to see No Duh play at Rock Bottom brewery downtown. They're RAD and it was wayyy better than a club with just a dance floor and a DJ, cheaper than seeing Gwen Stefani and easier than trying to get No Doubt back together....and then having to pay to see that. The guys even did a little Sublime when Spen (Gwen) was changing costumes. They were so much fun! I love live music...

I keep thinking that Superbowl Sunday is like a holiday...like stores should be closed or something. But no, the game's just on and it's a day like any other day.
I think in general, NY played pretty sloppy, but that last touchdown during the last 2 minutes was pretty miraculous so I forgive them. I was rooting for them and they won, all that matters.
