good times ... good times ...



MY 101st POST!

ah, it's good to get away sometimes ... you know?

I spent the weekend with my good friends Beth and Jon. Both work at Answers in Genesis a ministry dedicated to promoting Creation Science. AIG is currently constructing a magnificent museum designed to be more like a theme park than a stuffy, old "bone house". The tentative opening date is Spring 2007. From what I've seen already, it's bound to be a treat ... life size T-Rex, a walk through Genesis that climaxes at the Cross, everything is top rate ... including their two new employees.

My best friend once told me after she got out of an illustration class that she was going to one day marry an artist by the name "Twachtman" ... Mrs. Twachtman ... I had never seen his work until this weekend in Cincinnati at the Art Museum ... I fell in love with the long, rough strokes and the palette of blues and grays and greens ... sort of morose, melancholy, introspective ... but now my friend's getting married to someone else whose last name isn't nearly as fun to say.

While on my sabbatical this week, I've learned that God ... in a way ... is like France ... hmm. See if you can make the connection.

Being French in part, I cannot see how God could possibly be like France. I guess he tolerates ungrateful people, like France does.

Christine, have you seen them do Toxic live? It's so funny. Up in Indy last fall, the crowd was going nuts.

hillarious ... i saw it here in Louisville last Fall. no one knew what was coming ... but the moment the violin started squeaking, Laura and I were practically out of our seats. one of my friends was merely appreciating the song for what it was and had no idea the song belonged to a one B. Spears. i'm afraid he was disappointed in me as i began singing along. what can i say? I taught high school girls for a year ... one sort of acquires those things by osmosis.
