A July 4th Panther Attack!

What if life was an Olive Garden commercial!?  It would probably be too happy…or a big greasy mess.  There would be some good things, I suppose.  You know what you never see in an Olive Garden commercial? Panther Attacks!  A world free from the terror of panthers would be a very good thing.  Think about this!  Happy college kids eating and smiling about their amazing lives, when suddenly they’re attacked by a Panther  (Of course they survive).  I would definitely not hate Olive Garden as much if they did that…I mean, I still wouldn’t eat there…I don’t like Italian food. 

I’ve been watching tv.  Right now, Role Models is on.  Haha I really want to go fight in a Ren Fair now.  It looks awesome!  And by awesome I mean very dorky.  I still want to do it!  Anyone else want in?  I watched Marley and Me…Guess what? Yep, the dog dies.  I cried.  I can’t help that I get attached to dogs in movies.  I’m not afraid to admit I’ve only cried at two movies my whole life.  The other one was The Green Mile.  Seriously, they killed the kind, gentle black man for a crime he didn’t commit!  If you don’t cry about that then I would see a doctor!   Because you may have misplaced your soul.  Anyway, I got off subject there a bit.

Tomorrow is July 4th…I will celebrate by eating a lot.  I feel kinda guilty celebrating it.  I didn’t fight or earn this freedom.  I was born into it.  People died so I could have the freedom to post what I want on this blog.  When I think about that it makes me wonder if I should be writing more serious stuff.  Why do I deserve this?  Even more importantly, why should I get to celebrate it tomorrow.  I’ve been told how lucky I am to be free, but I don’t really know.  I’ve never been to communist China or to a starving African village.  I don’t know how good I have it.  I’ll try to remember the families of those who have died and are fighting so that I can post this.  I hope you remember them as well.

I saw Bambi today

Hey guys.  I’m trying to get in the habit of just sitting down and writing at least once a day or every other day.  So, if that doesn’t excite you I don’t know what will! haha 😀

Had work today.  I got there, helped out a little in the kitchen, then got on the mower and cut grass for six hours, it was awesome!  I don’t know about you, but I love to cut grass.  I get to just sit on a very slow-moving vehicle and just think.  “About what?”, most people ask.  Well, everything, life, God, politics, stupid people, everything!  Today my main point of thought was Mary’s amazing faith!  I mean, she had so much to lose and all she said was, “I am the Lord’s servant.  May it be to me as you have said.” (Luke 1:38).  Now, this thought was inspired by the third sermon of Mark Driscoll‘s series on Luke.  They’re really good!

So, apparently I like to sleep late when I’m in my R.E.M. (rapid eye movement, incase you didn’t know) cycle.  I had to be at work by 8:00 so I set my alarm for 6:00 so I would have time to do my quiet time.  At 7:00 Dad came in and woke me up.  I was really surprised that my alarm didn’t go off at 6:00.  I assuming I was sleeping so deep I don’t remember turning my alarm off or I turned it off in my sleep.  Either one is fun. ha

I was cutting grass today, as I mentioned above, and a little fawn ran past me.  I didn’t even know where it came from.  It still had spots, hence the title ‘I saw Bambi today‘.  I saw the mom looking for it a few hours later, hope she found him or her.

We had our fourth of July party yesterday! 😀  It was fun!  Soooo much food, not sure if that’s a good or bad thing.  No fireworks but I did get in some Bocce ball time!  It’s so much fun, and I’m not sure why.  I would tell you how to play but we don’t even really know.  We just kind of played in a way that was universally accepted at the party.  I beat almost everyone, except my uncle and………my mom :/, haven’t fully recovered from that yet. haha  We got to see some fireworks on the way home which was cool.  Like I said in my last post, I like fireworks.

Well, I’m getting tired…thanks for reading
