I'll talk, but I don't promise to make sense.

First, there is this, which is that moment when you're reading a book and you read a sentence that contains the title of the book.

Secondly, one of my favorite blogs I follow is written in French.  I don't have any idea what any of it says, but I think it's a design blog and really, how many of those can you have before throwing up?  (Answer: I don't know, but I haven't gotten there yet.)  But it has the prettiest pictures.  It is here.

If you must know, I was asked to speak in church on Sunday, and I am in the process of procrastinating preparing for it.  Do you know I haven't spoken in church since highschool?  And that the last time I spoke in front of anybody at church I almost fainted?  So in the midst of my procrastination, I am trying to change my perspective.  I am trying to turn my fear and apprehension of talking in front of a congregation into glee at the realization that a room full of people are obligated to listen to me for at least 10 minutes, and I can tell them any dang thing I want.  Would it be inappropriate to just quote Saturday Night Live skits the whole time?

I want you all to know that I made a really good mix cd the other day.  For springtime.  It's probably my favorite so far, because I've been listening to it on hard repeat in my car for days.  If I could burn you all a copy and send it to you I would, but you'll just have to be content with the playlist:

  1. Rolling In The Deep - Adele
  2. Shadow Stabbing - Cake
  3. Garden Grove - Sublime
  4. Promises - Eric Clapton
  5. Silver Stallion - Cat Power
  6. I'm Not Calling You a Liar - Florence & the Machine
  7. Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window? - Jimi Hendrix
  8. Redundant - Green Day
  9. Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger - Daft Punk
  10. Love or Prison - Blonde Redhead
  11. Her Morning Elegance - Oren Lavie
  12. Cold Shoulder - Adele
  13. By The Way - The Red Hot Chili Peppers
  14. Dog Days Are Over - Florence & the Machine
  15. Ain't No Rest For the Wicked - Cage the Elephant

 Feel free to make your own, cause you know it's good listening.

Okay, time to get down to business.

  1. Well, good luck with your talk! Still procrastinating? Talking in church, phew....we make it out to be so much in our minds, but as soon as it's over all is well.... I worked up some serious nerves before I got up to speak, and I shook the whole time, though nobody could tell. In the end, it went pretty well for being the first time in 6ish years! I'm sure you'll do splendidly! :) ...but only if you quit procrastinating in time to get it put together ;)
