beano is here!!! woohoo! she came in a couple days ago and it's great to have her back for a few days.
i think that it was the biggest baptismal service that i have ever been to this morning. i think that there were like 15 people. simon baptized alot of the kids from pt (the youth group), his first time doing so. yay simon.
today we have more christmas show stuff to put together. whatever happened to sundays being a day of rest huh? i think that master's need to read and see what the bible says about this.
NICHOLAS!!!!!!!3 DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!AAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! not even three whole days! i can't wait to see you!!!

well, today has been amazingly busy. i think that this one of the first times that i have sat down since 10am. the day started with me getting up late because my alarm did not go off. blast. one more late away from my ultimate punishment...running the streets of copenhagen in my underpants.
so, back to todays events. we worked on christmas show props all day and will be doing so for the next 9 days. sorry nick but i will be undescribably busy for the first week that you are here. but hope fully there will be others to entertain.
lotte, rachael and i were assigned to sew velcro on a tarp. we ran into technical problems when the sewing machine didn't work. hm. so we find brittny because we all know that she is a wizz in the sewing industry. she also runs into problems. there was a fight with the machine and it was decided that brittny's "eyes were going" trying to thread the needle.
then it was time to COOK. that was brittny, mine and daniel's job. i would have to say that i have not had so much fun cooking in a long time. we'll have to do it again soon guys. all i know is that brittny insisted on saying daniel's name anytime that she was addressing him.
after we ate, i was trying to wash my dishes and andy was provoking me in some way, i don't quite remember what he was doing( i think that i got amnesia after what happened after this. you will understand in a minute). i went to kick him and slipped in the water on the floor and landed flat on my back. all i could do was lay there and laugh and before i knew it andy was sitting on top of me laughing so hard he was crying and so was simon. i was told by simon that it is i that makes his life richer...yeah makes it richer by making a fool out of myself and falling.
well, that was my day. now off to xln't

well, thanksgiving i would have to say was a very exhausting day. we had rock show and then we had lots of cooking and getting stuff together for family night. took a half an hour break and went to lunch with simon. we were both so stressed out and tired all we could do was sit at the table and laugh at the day because if we hadn't we would have just cried.
our big dinner party of 100 went great. my host mom never showed up which was really weird because she said that she was going to be there and then she wasn't. hmm. there was lots of food and christmas music.
we played dirty santa, or some would call it chinese christmas. that was absolutely crazy. there was running and screaming coming from nicole and sarah and craig trying to steal presents from one another. that was pretty funny. then jon sang o holy night and there was a two year old witha pasifier in his mouth that stood right in front of him and stared at him the whole time and danced around. it was great.
then we ended the evening with family night which was watching home alone and eating more. but hey, isn't that what thanksgiving is for? tonight we are having a christmas party at karin's apartment and are going to watch the second one. i love that.
i would just like everyone to know that i have received a package from home that i have been waiting for for three months. yay for sour sticks and pictures!

there were several arab boys outside tonight and they decided to blow more of my window up. like it wasn't bad enough with a huge hole in it, now there is an even huger hole that is almost the size of the entire window. i wanted to swear really bad, but being the christian girl that i am of course i didn't. yay for fireworks.
we have the craziest week ahead of us. the only time that we have off is on friday night.
nick comes in 7 days! i am so excited! sorry man but i am going to be WAY busy for the first few days that you are here. you will have to find some other friends....hahhaha.
amanda shaye |11:03 AM
today i didn't have to do much of anything which was quite alright with me. sarah johnson was in need of my assistance with a little shopping for someone that we know and love. so i spent all afternoon downtown instead of in tracks. woo.
i did a little christmas shopping of my own. i had to mom. I LOVE CHRISTMAS!
i would just like to say though that andy oldenburg is a scrooge and needs to be disemboweled for being so.
yay for glogg.

i just listened to, with my awesome director, craig johnson, queen's "bicycle race" and "fat bottomed girls". i really needed to laugh and he definitely helped me on that one. thanks buddy, owe you one.

we had a first year reunion last night at kimie's house. there was alot of snacks and "question games" and picture looking at. jon sang oh holy night and made me happy. then he played some worship songs and we prayed for each other. it was really good. as jon said, it was good to find that time with God outside of master's, with people that weren't in master's.
and then somehow we were in the van driving somewhere. we decided to go on an adventure. we weren't sure where the adventure was leading until we saw signs for the little mermaid. we got there and got out and it was freezing. took some pictures, jon jumped across the water to the mermaid and got his picture taken up close. we drove off and left him...sucka! then we tried to get filip to stay and have a slumber party,(it's not like it sounds, i promise)but as always he had more important things to do, like...work. and vera is the BEST.
all in all, good time last night. these people have all touched my life in different ways and i love spending time with them.

tonight danielle and i did nothing. we tried to get our friend/turned enemy filip to come and see us but he had better things to do than come see his two favorite girls in the whole world...
we watched the human video tape with about three human videos from the first year. we laughed so hard i thought that we were going to pee our pants.
simon- as stephen the martyr
lea- too many hand motions
and we thought that we had it bad last year.
yes, we did nothing. NOTHING. i am still so bored. i think that i need to jsut go to bed. goodnight everyone. and to my american friends and family have a good afternoon.
shout out to rebecca, the love of my life, that is now back from Århus! that's right boys, be jealous.

i have just been informed that my little maltese dog has been sold to people that live far away from chester... here is the story as my mother told it, the circumstances behind his move.....
max (my dog) was peeing on an elderly neighbor's rock and the neighbor threatened to call the police. He was calling almost everyday about max being down there. So we put max on a long leash, but he wasn't happy with that and started doing his business in the house, so we put an ad in the trader and a lady from down by vienna called and came by and bought him. He will have a good home and a girlfriend now.
stupid, stupid man is what i have to say, and when i get home i am going to march down to his house and cut his dirty face! then we'll see how fast he can call the police when he has no eyes! yep. that is what i am going to do. you can shove it mr. amshler!

last night we watched the mothman prophecies. i thought that it was a good movie....danielle thought otherwise. ok, as some of you remember last year filip and i decided to play a little trick on danielle after we watched the movie the ring...
we had lauren stand in the dark hallway with her dark hair covering her face. we then called over danielle over saying that we had to talk to her. she saw lauren and was so scared that she couldn't even talk. she just screamed and and told us that she hated us both. well, the trick that we pulled last night definitely ranks right up there with that one. so, she made me sleep inher room with her because she was so freaked out.
so i was in the bathroom and nicole decides to go into danielle's room and hide in the bed across from danielle's. she covers herself up and just waits. danielle comes in and thinks that there is something in the bed, but then tells herself that she is being silly. nicole waits a little while and then just sits straight up really fast. i was in my room with the door closed, and i still heard her scream. oh, man. i think that she was horrified. there was also a little drawing in her journal waiting for her. for those of you who have seen the movie you know what i am talking about...
so she thought that she heard noises all night and couldn't go to sleep intil 4. there was someone, she claims, that came into the room at 2. hmmmm.
moral of the story. danielle, don't watch suspensful movies. you can't handle it.

i would like to ask a certain former friend of mine,(since he ended the relationship in the guestbook. if you have not observed the guestbook, please do so now) a mr. eric binder, "why i am a jerk and why you are mad at me?". whatever did i do? i think that this is just his way of wanting to get posted about on the site. good job eric. yay, you got posted about. oh, but please tell me why it is supposedly "over".

today for chapel we went for a run. that was actually very enjoyable. i really had a good time doing it. yes, chapel was good today.
last night i went to a clothes party. this is where you bring all the clothes that you no longer want and either trade with other people there OR sell them for way cheap. it was so cool. teddy, sarah and i had a very good time i would have to say. it was not enjoyable lugging my garbage bag full of clothes around though. it gave me a headache...
i gave simon a spongebob hat (sorry mom and dad, but it was the one that you gave me for christmas a couple years ago in my stocking) and he wore it ALOT today. i wish that i had a picture of it so you could all see how ridiculous it is. it is one of those hats that you would only wear if you were dressed in coveralls and going out to sled with some friends who looked equally ridiculous. but being simon, he felt the need to wear it around the offices all day. it was quite funny i would have to say.
tonight lotte and i decided to make dinner a little more exciting tonight. we lowered the lights and got out the wine glasses and made it sooo nice in the cafe. there are only 13 of us here all weekend. it has been really nice so far. really quiet. i think that it is going to be a great weekend. and tomorrow we go to jarle's! yay!!!
amanda shaye |1:02 PM
