i'm planning a trip to hattiesburg soon. it will be a short one..but i need it. i thought some of you would like to know. definite plans will be forthcomming. very possibly next week. while in town i'll be staying with nick and chris. now you cant say you didnt know how to find me :)
a burr coffee grinder from Ebay
a book of stories and poems by E. A. Poe (on sale for about 1/3 of the original cost)
a blank card to send
Apples to Apples crate eddition (one of the best group games ever)
a chai latte for myself and a brownie mocha frappe' for my friend katherine.
speaking of katherine...
ive realy come to appreciate days i get to spend with katherine. most of you dont know her..and that is sad..because she's great to know. we've known each other since we were 6 and 7. i can honestly say that our friendship has surpassed time and space barriers..and i'm surprised. after i moved away from here i always thought we stayed friends because our parents are friends..but now its more than that..its more that right now we need to be friends....and God knew we'd need that connection where we are in our lives now..so he kept us in touch for the last 13 or 14 years.
It's hard though, to hang out and not spend most of our time talking about how things were when we were kids....but i think we do that because we have so much time gapped where we didnt get to forget the kid memories and replace them with addolesent and highschool memories. its like we suddenly jumped from kids into adults with no transition at all.
What's funny to me is..if you took a list of our interests and profiled what we like to spend our time doing..then put the lists side by side..or knew katherine and i completely seperate of one another during the time that we have been apart...you'd probably not think we'd find much in common to want to spend any time together...yet she and i can finnish each other sentances and laugh till 1:00am and have conversations about what God is doing in our lives and see completely eye to eye on things.
God's kinda neat.
katherine, i promise its not just that we're strange, misplaced, and misunderstood :)
