last night we had the rockin-est pirate night ever in the history of....history. there was great pirate food, like nails and bullets, and then we had great pirate competitions. we had to make up our own pirate songs and make a ship out of human bodies and a few props. all on video i might add. awesome. pictures and more details to come later (as soon as andraes puts his pictures on the L drive...ehem).

i want you to know that i think you are way cooler than jennifer garner and if i had a million dollars i would use all of it to buy you twix bars....well, maybe i would buy myself a great big gun first, but after that i would buy you twix. i promise. because i love you just that much.
amanda shaye |3:38 PM
the long awaited night has arrived....PIRATE NIGHT!!! o my gosh i am so excited, you have no idea. today i have to go and buy 600 kronar worth of snacks for us and about 30 norwegians that have come to visit. i expected them to pretty much be our age, and some of them are, but the majority is like 30...ish or way older. scary. i hope that they get into it tonight or else this is going to stink.
jon and annie are captains of the ships that we assembled for tonight. this should be interesting.
we all have to come up with pirate names. i took a test on the inter net that tells you what your pirate name is...mine is Bloody Prudentilla Vane . yes, i like the sound of that. i especially like that it has the word "bloody" in it. it's description of me is, "Every pirate lives for something different. For some, it's the open sea. For others (the masochists), it's the food. For you, it's definitely the fighting. You tend to blend into the background occaisionally, but that's okay, because it's much easier to sneak up on people and disembowel them that way. Arr!" yes. i am awesome.
come join the fun. if you think you can handle it...

currently awaiting and anticipating a phone call from a converted texan...
amanda shaye |9:37 AM
i just have to say that brittny's was the best birthday party ever. i don't think that it will be topped this year by anyone. it makes me scared to throw a birthday party because it just might not measure up. sthe evening started out with lots of cake, a coloring contest, (that i definitely should have won i must say) and some radiohead. lots of people showed up ::cough:: people that she didn't even know. didn't everyone know that this was an invitation only party?!?!?! it wasn't invite all of your friends from church and bornholm party! i wish rebecca would have shot them with her gun. what good is it to have a gun that you don't use? :contemplating: :contemplatiing:
we got to play some great games. games that i played at my 5 year mcdonalds birthday party. like pin the tail on the donkey and oh, wait, we did play an awesome game. DANCING MUSICAL CHAIRS. this was my second time. it was great. nicole dj'ed just like the first time at heart and soul. she is a tricky dj though. you never know what she will do. she likes to play with the players. the only thing that was missing from this picture though was eric, davey and joakim....those frolicking fiends.

today was one of those days that was just so enjoyable I don't want it to end. i didn't get up until 11:15, and that's always a good start to a day. then i got a phone call from simon asking me to go to the diesel store with him to pick out jeans. while on the phone with him i got yelled at by my ever beautiful roomie miss nicole, because i was definitely not using my inside voice, and disturbed her beauty sleep. so i go with simon and he buys jeans that i pick out called "KAOS" jeans. how cool is that. to wear jeans that say KAOS. then i went downtown with danielle and filip to the espresso house. mmmmmm. hung out there and then there was just too much master's happenin in that place so we left and went to h&m where filip bought socks. yay. we considered watching a movie and then decided against it because there was nothing that we especially wanted to see. we went home. then we got pizza and now we are going to go find something to do. so yeah they are waiting on me so i need to go.
oh, i got to have a good talk with kasper. i miss that guy. he just HAD to move a half hour away so i can't see him anytime that i want now.
mandie has yet to receive any pictures...MOTHER.
just heard volume 2 of henrik's "special" tape recording.
amanda shaye |11:41 AM
Sunday, October 26, 2003
last night i had the privilege, along with rebecca nicole and daniel, to hear henrik's "bodily function tape recording". wow, is all that i have to say to that. it was 2am and i was laughing uncontrollably.
this goes out to my "aunt at heart" angie myers, who does not always know what i am saying but reads my journal anyways. love you!
so, i am getting ready to go perform a human video with the best ISI in the whole world. we get to drink beer and smoke cigarettes ( but not for real angie) in this one. yay.
can i just take a second to tell you how crazy i am about my friend simon....i am.
we are having a birthday party this evening for an "afrodamer" named brittny babb. "don't eat and run" is the motto for tonight. this is going to be great. details at a later date.

i just want to say "i love you" to whoever put the white chocolate strawberry filled delight on my bed. i just got off of the phone with nate and lauren and since lauren is going to be in new york over new years and i am going to be in chicago with nate....looks like i got myself a kisser for that night. WOOHOO! lauren you know i love you, but nate said himself that he loves me more.
i just got jacked in the nose by my good friend danny. he got a little carried away with our boxing match...now i have a bruised arm and nose. thanks simon, thanks danny.
amanda shaye |1:01 PM
danielle i don't understand why there has to be onions in everything.
amanda shaye |11:23 AM
i don't know how much longer i can wait for my pictures mom. seriously. this is how it goes....
mandie gets up and eagerly goes and checks the mail. mail is not there. mandie is disappointed yet again.
i need mail!!!!! i am also waiting for a package from the warfield household located in coffeen illinois. I am not sharing anything. that is just how it goes. it is ALL mine. don't even ask when it gets here.
amanda shaye |11:22 AM
just got done watching 4 hours of 24 straight.... i think that i have a problem.
there are strange people sitting around me. i have no idea who they are. the computer consists of 3 master's student's the rest are potential suspects. i feel them watching me, at any moment they could strike. why should i trust the master's student's? i was walking last night and one of my own men turned on me and scared the crap out of me. i shot him dead.
....yes, i definitely have a problem.
i hear that someon is working on getting his passport. hm. this could be fun. sas man, check it out. mom's got the hook up.

i just got done beating the crap out of danielle and, ehem simon. we were boxing each others brains out downstairs, i had the mask on and everything. i was just joking and barely tapped simon and he totally took a swing at me, but missed. i hit him really hard (seriously now) and he got super fired up then hit me back. my arm hurts. good thing that i am not danielle cause i would have a big purple bruise on my arm. so, yeah, he decides to put some gloves on and we were going to have it out. then he decided that he hadn't had a very good day and he better not cause he would end up getting mad and hurt me in the process. scare me.
i just have to say that our master's band rocks so much i can't even handle it. man, the electic guitar was blowing my hair out of the speakers. yeah all of you, danny, lotte, andy, ace, daniel, and aaron you all ROCK! they are better than we were at the END of the year last year, and this was just our first practice. i'm excited. God rocks too for making them so cool!
i just went into my room and nicole was curled around her guitar sleeping. so cute. she woke up and told me that is was her boyfriend. hm. then i crawled in and we had a talk about...stuff and....stuff. then i accidently hit the boyfriend with my butt and it fell off the chair and nicole cried. i am going to bed now. it is almost tomorrow.
amanda shaye |4:50 PM
today i went to klippen and got a free dance with a guy that came up to me and sang pink floyd's "we don't need no education...". i pushed him (aren't you proud of me eric?!) and told him "i don't think so dude". it was great. you should have been there.
today lea stopped by and we had a talk in the bathroom jsut like old times. we went and bought risi fruiti and she sat on the counter and me on the chair. it was so perfect. we talked about lauren and about how many bathroom talks we had æast year without rachael. lauren call me i miss you. i am tired of calling and singing to your answering machine "the way you look tonight" instead of getting to sing it to you. i think that i will call your boyfriend and sing to him. he likes me more than you do i think. hm, yeah definitely calling the asian hotty.
yes, i have a phone CALL ME. 30 22 57 53. i need all of your numbers. it does work, i used it today. is everyone happy now?

TWENTY FOUR ROCKS MY FACE!
i would just like to say that i think that michael tangstad is a big fat jerk for stealing nolan's computer. i think that nolan is going to "jack" him sooner or later. i say, MORE POWER TO YOU MAN! with all that nolan has gone through with computers this year, this i think is a pretty low blow. so watch your back michael, and check the shadows, because there you never know who might be watching...and lurking...i like that word. "lurking".
amanda shaye |12:48 PM
i think that i must have watched fifteen episodes of strongbad last night. i love that guy. the other night simon and i emailed him three times. well, simon did, i just sat there and laughed. we emailed him about a certain friend of ours that thinks she is jennifer garner, and then another friend of ours that has problems with losing keys. it was a hoot.
so i am "power hungry" huh? interesting...i think that i like the sound of that.
well, gotta run david and i are taking our track to the fisketorvet (i think that is how you spell it, if not...blame jaralei) to just hang out and have fun. that has been the theme today, HAVE FUN. that is all that we did in isi too. we did nothing productive, just watched tomb raider. i wish that i had lara croft's abs...oh man.

one last thought for the day i promise.
"don't let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya"
oh man, :laughing hard: :laughing hard: :choking: :hacking: :still laughing hard:
to bed with me.
amanda shaye |4:49 PM
at this moment rebecca is drawing a stick sketch of herself on danielle's very sensitive-skin-back. wow this is so great. i think that this is the highlight of my day. daniel has his legs crossed and he is quote "still a man". we are in desperate need of a camera at this time. where is a digi when you need it?! i think that everyone in this computer lab is going into tired stupid mode and i think that it is about time for me to leave.
amanda shaye |4:43 PM
went to dan't house last night. he made food lots of food as he always does, and then we all just sat around and talked. he managed to not embarrass me this time which is amazing but he succeeded in doing so with some others. watch out first years, this guy doesn't care if you can date or not he will try to hook you ALL up. just make sure that he doesn't try to get you to play the licorice game with opposite sex partners like he did with us last year.....no more comment on that. he thinks that it is all SO FUNNY. those were actually his exact words last night. scary.
eric binder i tried to call you the other day like three times in case you wondered who kept calling and not answering. i could hear you but you could not hear me. i'll try again...be ready.

i want to know why 'sweetest day' passed by and i was not sent a card. where's a hallmark when you need one? what is up with that? i think that i totally deserved to be recognized on this very special day and yet wasn't. hm, i WILL remember this. have no doubt of that.

just thought that i would give a little run down of our time out on the town last night. well, it all started off with being....bored. then someone got the bright idea to take daniel's parents' car and go on an adventure. an adventure sounded way better than sitting at the computer watching hour upon hour of strongbad, so i went. my partners in crime ended up being rebecca, daniel and danny. our adventure first took us to christiania. in case you don't know this is the place where all the hashheads go to smoke. ALL OF THEM. danny had never been there so he asked if we could show him. so we get in the car and danny tries to get us to play a "hide from the stop lights" game, rebecca is blaring german country music and daniel is rolling down the windows yelling at the bikers( by bikers i mean 10 speed ones). the whole time i am just sitting in the back taking it all in not saying a word. i was just excited that we were going to christiania. i was preparing myself for the large amount of second hand smoke i was about to inhale. so we stop off there for awhile and then we went downtown. couldn't find a parking spot so daniel decides to break danish law and drive on the walking streets. that was interesting. we go to KFC, and i thanked jesus for that. daniel wanted to get a family meal for like 20 people and eat it all himself, but we restrained him. we went back to master' s, thanked each other for the adventure and went our separate ways. my way was to the bathroom to dye my hair. that was a good time. then i went to bed.
enjoy photdoc of last night
amanda shaye |7:30 PM

what to post when there is nothing to post...had a good talk on the bus last night, drank some coffee at the best cafe in town, saw faces i hadn't in awhile, and gave a little TLC to a friend that needed it.
it has come to my attention that there is going to be a halloween party next friday down in the club, given by "drejervej rock". wow. the invitaion to this party blows my mind. it is going to be one of the weirdest things that this master's has ever tried to pull off. i do have one question though. the point of this party is to show the danes what halloween is like in the states, and yet, danes make up the majority of the creative committee....why? hm, this confuses me.

i was completely and utterly shut down by my crew last night. this was a very sad night considering that i had seriously already had the crappiest day ever and that just was something to pile on top of it. yeah guys, you know who you are. i feel betrayed in the worst way. we have had how many hours of this together and then you decide to take one of the most crucial episodes and watch it without mandie because mandie does not matter and it also doesn't matter that she is not able to be there. you know what though? being the nice person that i am i suppose i can forgive you this sin. so, consider yourselves forgiven boys. jesus forgives, jesus forgives through me, so yeah.

tonight i went out with a daringly handsome man. yes, DARINGLY. he picked me up on his harley davidson and we hit the streets of copenhagen pretty hard to say the least. as we drove along we suddenly realize that we are being followed. we turn off into a dark street for effect....:da da da: they see our abrupt turn and follow. we try to hide in the shadows but they are too observant, and see us. we are immediately captured and thrown into the back of their van which i could have sworn was a car a few minutes before.... they tie us up and put packing tape over our mouths and ears (they don't want us to hear and know their plans for our immediate torture and execution). knowing that we will soon die we confess our undying love try to wrap our arms around each other, forgetting that we are not able to do so because we are duct taped and tied up and can't hear anything. from out of nowhere jennifer garner is right beside me! she shoots everyone is the car with smooth, machine like movements and jumps in the drivers seat and unties us...all at the same time (WHAT?! she is jennifer garner! of course she can handle it! I think that she took like, 4 awesome pills that morning). so she takes us back to the harley which amazingly did not get stolen and was right where we left it...hm. we get on and drive home. when we get there we tell each other that we confessed our love out of panic and didn't really mean any of it. rock.
i hope that this satifies you "feelthelip". very inconspicuous with the name too. oh, and you have no idea what an exciting life i lead. the only reason that i don't post about it is because you couldn't handle it...
amanda shaye |4:36 PM
last night i watched 3 episodes of 24, did scripture memory, watched andy and rebecca do jennifer garner impressions in the SALT library, and then made the ever popular mistake of going into the computer lab. this room is now deemed a "silent study room" by a certain individual who will remain nameless. danielle, simon and i decided to be spontaneous and go to the kiosk. danielle wore her cape and slippers and i wore my pajamas, purple ones that is. simon is so lucky he doesn't even know. we went to 7-11 and bought stuff and then went up to the first floor and chilled on the couch because it is definitely warmer there than it is in the sleep in. we layed up there and talked and laughed for awhile, and spoke of what we call our grandparents (ie: mammaw, poppy, pappaw, hey you with the money). at one point danielle heard someone coming and had the great idea to pretend to be asleep. we did this with her, but i guess that she forgot that she was doing it 2 seconds later because she started talking loudly, completely ignoring our pretending to be "opossums". i would like to know why my father called me an opossum when i pretended to be asleep. do opossums pretend to sleep so that they don't have to walk inside from a car late at night? i think that that is one of those things that he tells me that he forgets to say that he is joking and then i believe him for years. runs in the family. we soon called it a night and went our separate ways. very interesting evening.

amanda shaye |4:58 AM
today annie and i decided to have isi (accountability group) outside. so, we decided to scandalously break the rules and risk being caught and knifed by a certain staff member and went out on the roof. this involves a bit of climbing and jumping and falling all at once. very complicated, don't try it. so we finally get everyone out there with no small amount of complaing from nicole because of "shortness of legs". we start running with our heads as low down as possible because if someone sees us, we are had and there are office windows everywhere. scariness. a certain elderly gentleman decides to take his smoke break at this very time. annie and i notice and run faster. the other girls noticing that we have increased speed yell for us to SLOW DOWN. the man says "hej" and keeps smoking, some of my isi girls in turn say "hej"...what the?! we are trying to be inconspicuous here and they just...aren't. anyways....we almost got away without being noticed...i don't think that he will tell. but, the kid that was down on the playground that i almost threw a rock at and saw me might tell. hm, i need to figure out where i left my guns....i feel like being jennifer garner for a day.
amanda shaye |4:53 AM

last night i called mimi at a very late hour...for me. i found out that she is going to jamaica for like the twenty third time this year. whatever. all that i have to say is that i had better have lots of christmas presents from mimi and that she had better not be spending my present money on those dirty jamaicans. there mimi, do you feel like my aunt and friend now that i posted about you? oh, and i am very excited that you figured out how to sign the guestbook...and my name is not gladys, and simon does not like you hitting on him. he told me so.
and eric binder i have a few things to say to you mister. you were in copenhagen for 8 days. i have been here for almost 11 months. think about it. also, i was not the one driving. it WAS a man. and that man also managed to get us lost inside of copenhagen. so don't tell me that direction is a man's thing because you are full of crap. it was only when he started listening to a girl that we DID get home. so, keep your dirty, violence intended comments to yourself.
danielle definitely has my back on this one.....you poser.

this post is dedicated to my friend nick. nick got very jealous because dan got to be famous for a day. so this post is being made because he threatened me. nick and i are very good friends and we have been for 3 years. it may not seem like very long to be best buddies, but we are. we got to be this way by many late nights of doing nothing. nothing as in....midnight runs to super walmart to get water for his dad's breathing apparatus, and highlighting hair. nicks hobbies are surfing(heh heh), pizza making, and cave wandering or whatever you call it. he is italian.....need i say more? yes, all you single girls, he is hot stuff, the man. he is supposedly coming to visit me in one of the upcoming months. so danes beware, you will soon have an itallian stallion in your midst! Love you man!

i just got back from a weekend trip to århus with my isi group. it was the craziest trip ever. as soon as we got there on friday we were put to work. the guys helping us out were way nice though so that made it better. we basically cooked and cleaned for three days, but seriously we had so much fun together. we got to be pretty tight with the cafe lady named Margarethe. annie wipped out the naughty stick(a big wooden spoon) and started spanking everyone on the butt with it one afternoon, including margarethe. that was so funny i almost couldn't handle it. we also had some great....ehem....girl time in our room every night. yeah, i will say no more on that subject, but it was definitely a "show" to remember....we took off at at about 2:30pm yesterday and we arrived home at 12:15am. a four hour trip turned in to a 9 1/2 hour one and don't ask me why because i don't feel like explaining it. we also got the grand tour of copenhagen when we got into town....lets just say that our driver was way tired. a weekend full of memories.
oh, i was told by my friend simon, who was mentioned in an earlier post, that he did not need me as his pimp and that he could get girls all by himself. so this is a formal and public apology, to the love of my life, simon jakobsen. never again will i try to help you get a girl, because pretty soon "every fiber in every girl's body will scream your name"...am i right?

today i went to klippen in the red light district and got to talk to ALOT of prostitutes. there were so many out to day. we just give them coffee and cakes and invite them to come to the cafe. they appreciate it so much, just the little bit of love that we show them. it really makes me grateful for the life that i have. the small things that i take for granted mean so much to them.
i talked to amber dalesandro today on the telephone today. it was so great to hear her voice. i have to pack up all of her crap, which is alot, three boxes so far, and send it to her. man amber, can't you get your mom to do this stuff for you?! such a pain! just kidding. you know i love you ams. found out that i get to ride with two of the best girls ever on the way to minnesota in january. woohoo! bridesmaids bridesmaids bridesmaids!
andy's a wussy. no matter what he says.
filip ditched me for simpson's. i definitely do NOT feel loved at the moment. need some TLC up in here. i guess that i need to call my boyfriend in chicago.

this one goes out to my brother jonah just so he will worry and email me about it later......
I have a date tonight.
amanda shaye |3:34 PM
today we were all set to go work at a nursing home for a fundraiser to get us to London and then they cancelled on us. so instead of working during that alloted time we kicked back, made some milkshakes, popped some corn and watched schindler's list. great movie by the way but definitely a tear jerker. even the guys were crying. big wussys.
i went downstairs to hang out with some of the kids from pt (youth group) and totally got suckered by simon to help clean up. you know, that guy can get you to do almost anything just by giving you this certain look that oozes "oh, you know you love me and would do anything for me". sick. and i, being the sucker that i am, fall for it everytime. funny, men say that it is we (women) who are the deceivers and manipulaters...now i don't wany any of you to get the wrong impression of my friend simon. simon is a great guy. a note out to all you single christian women in DENMARK (because he won't go for americans. direct quote from simon; women are already difficult and complicated enough without throwing in cultural differences) you should come to the pinsekirken and date simon jakobsen. he's worth it.
amanda shaye |3:29 PM

sick i am today. well, i was sick earlier, but i am definitely feeling alot better now. i think that i ate something at breakfast that totally didn't agree with me. but my pink friend pepto and i had a little date and that helped. i was sitting in the computer room and they tell me that i am supposed to be in my room. what the...? whatever. i ate something bad spent a few hours resting and now i am better. big wup. i suppose that they are going to try and tell me that i can't eat dinner either. sure.
we (nolan, andy, and i) had another incredible night of 24 yesterday. whoa. it is so intense, give
me a sec..........whew. i think that i am headed for another one after dinner. word of advice, only start watching this show if you have intentions of dropping everything else. yeah, that was it, the word of advice i mean.

this goes out to my super mega groovy friend Daniel Tejada who makes his home in houston, texas home of cowboys, flapjacks and large women with lisps. dan and i, well, we are tight, and i mean TIGHT. i mean, like, you can not even imagine. we have a kind of tightness that cannot be broken by distance and time. we have "the pizza tightness". dan and i, we flipped pizzas together, we slaved in the back kitchen of a restaurant together and when things got rough we were there for each other....to wipe the sweat from each others brows. yes, "the pizza tightness" is not easily put aside. so dan, you are in texas, i am in denmark, so we will see what happens when i get home....that door is definitely open. heh heh.
one more thing. i would just like to say that david nielsen is the worst person to be around when he is bored. he will constantly touch you and bother you until he is bored with you and then he will just move on to someone else. he just now has removed my green converse shoe and is attempting to make me upset and angry by throwing it in the trash. i will not be moved. i am very happy that he is throwing it away. i wish that he would take my other one.
amanda shaye |9:43 AM
i am sitting here, in my detective hat that i got from h&m to help me think better. i don't think that it is working. i have a class due tomorrow that isn't ready, or i guess i could say it liket he danes do, "i haven't made my class for tomorrow yet" and i also haven't "MADE" scripture memory. jaralei i hope that you aren't reading this. um...er.. nevermind. i just can't concentrate. i have tried for the last three days and i can't do it. THIS DETECTIVE HAT WAS DEFINITELY NOT WORTH THE MONEY!

today i went with pernille, my host mom. which also happens to be danielle's host mom, but i like danielle and she likes me so it is cool. she took us to this place down on the walking streets called 'turtle' where you go and make your own sandwiches. it was very nice. afterwards we went to espresso house and she bought us vanilla chai tea lattes and cake. THEN when we left there she gave us bus money and also one hundred kronar to buy ice cream. She is a bit of a hefty woman and she says that we need to be bigger so we will be warmer in the winter. This is her reason for always buying us food.
The plans to go to greece have fallen through due to the fact that the place we were going to stay at is not open september through may. they are only open during the summer seaon. crap. that kind of had me down a little bit yesterday. cause i was all pumped up to be out of this building for 5 days in november and be in ATHENS. i think that we are going in may though when the infamous lori larsen arrives. woohoo!
last night lea came over and her, jaralei, melodee and i all decided to watch a movie up in jaralei's apartment. so we kindly go to aj and ask him if we can use his computer and he gave us permission. but then he was a big fat jerk about it and takes forever to download it. maybe that was because i accidently erased 9 files on his computer though....hm. well, anyways, i decided to take his phone until the movie was downloaded. i had so much fun calling all the people in his phone book! I got to talk to alot of really nice people. definitely have to do that more often, it was just too much fun for me to handle.
i also had a talk with a great friend of mine from back home yesterday. are guys really as selfish as they come off sometimes? i am beginning to think so. lets just say that i was not pleased with the end of the conversation. i was somewhat depressed and not happy. i was not happy because this conversation had been had far too many times already and i couldn't believe that it was occuring again. but, have no fear, i have not lost all faith in men, you can all redeem yourselves...with a lot of the green stuff(or purple, orange, tealish if you are in the dk).

at the moment there are about 5 people sitting around one computer watching "STRONGBAD"! we are laughing hard and hillariously. i made up a new rule today. whenever anyone laughs for the next 24 hours they have to laugh like this, "MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA". i think that it is the best rule ever. i applaud myself for thinking of it.

this morning i was woken up at 8am by a very rude person who told me that I had to get up and clean the handicapped bathroom because i failed to do it last night. i was like, "are you joking?" then i punched her right in her dirty face and went back to sleep. well, that is the way that i wish it would have happend, but it definitely didn't. that would explain why i am up and awake on a saturday moring at this ungodly hour. a morning where i have absolutely nothing to do and no reason to be awake.
they are practicing the korn video right now, I can hear them in the next room. a video that i think makes everyone in it uncomfortable at some point. whether you are the abusive husband beating the wife, or the wife getting the crap kicked out of her, the make out couple who has to stand with their faces in each others necks, the falling demons and the sleezy ones(need I say more), the guy that is getting jerked up and down by chains, and of course there is always the jumping jesus. at some point, i promise, you will be uncomfortable doing this video. just for future reference.
last night we just all kind of hung around the dorms and basically did nothing. filip came over and hung out for awhile, have to give him props for being here this time. i went with nolan and andy upstairs to watch more of the most addicting series ever...24. seriously, it kicks my butt. but nolan always wants to watch ONLY two at a time. i was actually not as intrigued last night as i usually am. for some reason the ones that we watched were kind of cheesy. i swear that you saw the camera man 2-3 times in the first episode that we saw, and then there was a scene where you could just totally tell that they didn't know what to do. yeah.
i got a phone. fleming gave mandie a phone, fleming got the sims card to activate the phone, but the phone that he got does not take the card that he bought. so, again here i am without phone and people have tried to call and then they get mad because i told them that i finally had a phone...and i don't. so if anyone has a danish mobile, yes i said mobile, that they would like to donate to the 'mandie has no money fund' it would be great and much appreciated. l would love you forever.
so i am going to continue on now with my meaningless day and just see what happens...you never know i just might find out what kind of acid dissolves meat today, and therefore it would not be a meaningless day...

i always said that i would never do this, and yet here i am, sitting at my computer posting on my very own online journal. oh, it goes without saying that rebecca is my best friend for today. she was the the one with the majic in her fingers as we set this all up. thanks babe.
today was a very...unexpected day. I like those kind. who would expect that lives would be tenderly touched and dramatically changed because of a message layed on someone's heart? who would have expected that we would find God in a dark basement? who would have expected that i would discover things within myself that i never noticed before? i think that today i learned alot about myself. how i deal with certain situations and what my initial response is to various....things. Who would have expected such an unexpected day?
rebecca just walked in and told me that i was a freakin stalker and that i shouldn't check her website every 10 minutes. she said all this in reference to a conversation that we had earlier about how she never posts enough. she is now making up a song about "all the food that she is eating and how she is going to be a porker".
the big gospel concert is tonight. woohoo. we sat down a couple days ago with this great gal VERA from the pinsekirken to work out schedules for cleaning and all that great stuff. little did we know that we were getting ready to enter...."A VERY EXCITING WEEKEND". or so that is how she described, and put it on the white board. an exciting weekend of cleaning toilets, dishes and packing sandwiches. I hear them singing, this is going to be a long night.
prime was at anna's house last night because almost all of the kids are in Italy on a school trip...seriously....tell me again, why do i live in the states? there were only a few of us but it was very nice. we didn't want to take the bus there sooooo, we all decided to pack and smash ourselves into daniel's very small car. danielle placed herself on my lap and her butt bones were hurting me. henrik kept accidently "leaking" on jasper's lap and made me and everyone else in the car laugh. brittny wanted to play a looking out the window-screaming game, but none of us got up the guts to actually do it. definitely goes in my book as one of those nights i won't forget.
Went to campsite concert last night. each time i see and hear them i am more pleased with their music and performance. it was great, all except for the fact that i was sweating like no other because of too many bodies in the small underground room. there was alot of master's up in there....
well, that is it for my first post. i think that i need to go study or do something productive at least for awhile. filip SAID that he is coming to hang out tonight but i am not sure how much i trust him after what happened last time.
