Do you know what makes me happy?

Well, among other things, my new leather jacket.

“But,” some of you are saying, “don’t you already have a leather jacket, Sarah?”

“Ah, yes,” I reply, “but you see, mine broke last week. Rather spectacularly. The zipper just stopped zipping. And it sucked. And it was going to be too difficult to fix. So I decided to take it back to the store where I got it, and see if they would exchange it (since leather jackets are, after all, supposed to last longer than 9 months, particularly when it’s only been cold enough to wear it for 4ish of those months.”

And exchange it they did.

Which is why you should always buy things like leather jackets at Sav-on.

Once again…

…God has shown up when I was beginning to doubt it. Though given the amount of times that has happened this week, one might be justified in wondering if I’m ever going to get it. Ah, the Israel moments in everyone’s life!

My new favorite web site

20 October 2005

Ok, well, it’s not my favorite, but anything that has references to words like “Kiriath-jearim” and “Sisera” and therefore helps me immensely in studying for my Old Testament test deserves mentioning. Without this site, I would have had to, like, read the first half of the Old Testament again. This weeked.

My new favorite joke

20 October 2005

Ok…so I realised why no one else thought this was funny…the end of the joke didn’t copy the first time 😉

One of the funniest parts about this joke is that I got it off Bubbs (Biola’s Bulletin Board System):

A man walked into the Women’s Department of Macy’s in New York City. He
told the saleslady “I would like a Baptist bra for my wife, size 36B.”

With a quizzical look the saleslady asked? “What kind of bra?”

He repeated “A Baptist bra. She said to tell you that she wanted a Baptist
bra, and that you would know what she wanted.”
“Ah, now I remember” said the saleslady. “We don’t get as many requests
for them as we used to. Mostly our customers lately want the Catholic bra,
the Salvation Army bra, or the Presbyterian type.”

Confused, and a little flustered, the man asked “So, what are the
differences?”

The lady responded, “It is all really quite simple. The Catholic type
supports the masses. The Salvation Army lifts up the fallen, and the
Presbyterian type keeps them staunch and upright.” He mused on that
information for a minute, and asked “So, what is the Baptist type for?”
“They,” she replied, “make mountains out of molehills.”

I never thought…

…I’d be quoting Avril Lavigne (or however you spell her name) on my blog. It’s almost sacreligious.

But, when the girl sings,”Life’s like this,/You fall, and you crawl,/And you break, and you take/What you get and you turn it into/Honesty,” she said what I feel today.

At least you get honesty after you’ve fallen, crawled, and broken (been broken?). I think that’s hope, in a truly backwards sort of way.
