So it's been a while, huh? Does anyone care? Did anyone miss the regular updates on Lavender *Sparkles*? Comment and make my day :) Eh, maybe I'll make this a long post tonight to make up for it...

"Random" is one of my favorite words. I don't know why. One of my all-time favorite professors, the wonderful Dr. Mary Brown, hated when my classmates and I used it all the time. She said that the things we called "random" weren't really random at all--in the literal sense of being completely accidental and by chance. Oh well, we used it all the time anyway. That said...a few completely random and unrelated thoughts tonight, to catch you all up on my life:

*First, Chrysalis, for those of you who are wondering how it went, after my last pathetic post. Well...I am not sure. Honestly if you asked me on Friday or on Saturday, I might have said it was terrible. Sunday, I kind of came around. I wouldn't say it was the most positive experience for me personally--but it wasn't supposed to be about me anyway. The girls at my table had a great time and seemed to get a lot out of the experience. I am still trying to process the whole thing. I kind of wonder if I had to feel like I was useless the whole weekend, so God could really make the point that what got accomplished through me really had absolutely nothing to do with me, and I could take no credit whatsoever. Hmm. There was some drama on Saturday...a certain United Methodist pastor who basically spoke heresy in a Q&A session. Whew, it was awful. But that's another long story...

*I have recently discovered the message boards on The Knot, and it is dangerous. Thousands of brides and newlyweds all over the country, who have nothing better to do but talk all day and all night about wedding ideas and relationships, etc. I know, it sounds dumb. I thought so too the first time, but now I have been sucked in. Argh.

*In other wedding-related news: A happy-anniversary shout-out to Sandra and Kevin Andrews, who are celebrating one year of married bliss today. And congrats to Janet Maddox, who just got engaged. Unfortunately she is one of many who got engaged after me, and is getting married before me. Enough of THAT already, people :P

*Try looking up yourself on Google, or MSN or someplace. It's kind of interesting what comes up. In a Google search, lots of legitimate stuff comes up for me--articles I've written and such. But it also indicates that I am 1) pregnant with twins; 2) manager of the Special Olympics in Illinois; 3) a North Dakota 4-H champion; 4) involved in a Supreme Court trial; 5) winner of a Maryland high school essay contest...and the list goes on. Who knew?

*When I am feeling sorry for myself not getting to see Steve often enough, I think, "it could be worse. he could be Crossing the Globe (dot-com)...seriously, check out this site, a couple of guys I know from school are doing this around-the-world adventure that just makes me jealous of all they're seeing and experiencing. Pretty cool.

Umm...guess that's all for now. I have a million other things to do rather than blog about them :)

Great to finally hear what's going on in your life. It seems as though you have had a whirlwind of a time. But it sounds like fun and your blogs have been quite interesting. Got your e-mail, will return soon. Love ya girl.
