I got a forward on my e-mail with lawyer jokes like this and I thought they were all pretty funny, so just thought I'd share one with all ya'll!

ATTORNEY:   Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
WITNESS:      No.
ATTORNEY:   Did you check for blood pressure?
WITNESS:      No.
ATTORNEY:   Did you check for breathing?
WITNESS:      No.
ATTORNEY:  So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
WITNESS:     No.
ATTORNEY:   How can you be so sure, Doctor?
WITNESS:     Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.
ATTORNEY:  But could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?
WITNESS:     Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law.

When the calls and conversations
Accidents and accusations
Messages and misperceptions
Paralyze my mind

Busses, cars, and airplanes leaving
Burning fumes of gasoline
And everyone is running
And I come to find a refuge in the

Easy silence that you make for me
It's okay when there's nothing more to say to me
And the peaceful quiet you create for me
And the way you keep the world at bay for me
The way you keep the world at bay

Monkeys on the barricades
Are warning us to back away
They form commissions trying to find
The next one they can crucify

And anger plays on every station
Answers only make more questions
I need something to believe in
Breathe in sanctuary in the

Easy silence that you make for me
It's okay when there's nothing more to say to me
And the peaceful quiet you create for me
And the way you keep the world at bay for me
The way you keep the world at bay

Children lose their youth too soon
Watching war made us immune
And I've got all the world to lose
But I just want to hold on to the

Easy silence that you make for me
It's okay when there's nothing more to say to me
And the peaceful quiet you create for me
And the way you keep the world at bay for me

I have had one of the most frustrating/tiring weeks ever!

I have been trying to get into 2 classes at the U of W...and every time I think I have it figured out...there is something wrong.

Now I have to make a decision that I don't want to make. That is, I don't really like any of the options, and I want more time than I have to think about it.

But I just want this whole ordeal to be over with, so hopefully the decision I make will turn out ok.

Now my biggest advice for anyone who goes to CMU is to go see Wesley! haha. If I had just done that from the beginning I wouldn't be having this problem. Him and I have spent a lot of time together the last little while...


On a funner note Jo and I went skiing/snowboarding yesterday! It was good to get out there even though it was a little cold. It was still fun. I wish so very much that I could go to the mountains and ski. And now I want to learn how to snowboard.


Lately I have been having strange dreams. Normally I don't even remember my dreams, but I have been remembering some of them. Sometimes I am just so relieved when I wake up that they are not real, and other times I wish I hadn't woken up b/c they were so good. One day the dream that I had seemed so real that for part of the day I sort of thought that it could've been real. I don't really like it when that happens. I would just rather not remember my dreams at all.

so i went to the dentist this morning...very traumatic b/c i don't like going to the dentist and i thought that i had a cavity!

but once again my record stays clear and i have no cavities!

so that's good news

however....

the x-rays showed that i will probably have to get wisdom teeth pulled.

that scares me a lot!!!


but other than that it's a beautiful day outside, so i am going to go shovel the driveway! wohoo!

I am at home now for Christmas

My parents waited until I got home to decorate the tree, so that is what we did on Friday night....




Last night was spent at my friend's parents' place with a bunch of people from church playing games!

Has anyone ever played the game Apples to Apples?? It's a good one!

It's nice to be home, but as much as I hate to admit it...I am kind of bored sometimes! I like it when there are lots of things to do. Don't get me wrong though, I do not miss school!

I hope everyone is either enjoying their holidays, or are getting ready to enjoy their holidays very soon!

I love learning new things about God and the Bible

But sometimes it is one of the hardest things to do

Sometimes when I find out new things, I am left feeling so helpless and so unworthy.

I also feel like I want to change, but how do you make yourself change, when really everyone needs to change in order for there to be any difference at all.


I am writing an essay about the biblical understanding of the material world. looking at the question "does matter matter?"

It's easy to write down all of the verses and what they mean, and then to look at how our world today is so materialistic and how much damage that causes to the environment, and to human lives. But what I am writing is so contradictory to how i live. It makes me feel so guilty.


why do we let ourselves focus so much on what we are not supposed to be focusing on, and define ourselves so much by those things that we shouldn't be focusing on? It is spelled out in the Bible pretty clearly, so why don't we listen?

today was an interesting day

was in grunthal this morning for choir

had a fun buss ride with my favorite ashley:
lots and lots of laughing
weirding out the buss driver
some good old MASH (ashley got the worst/best life ever! very ammusing)
nerds
green tonges...from licking gnomes
Kleefeld
and the use of a good word...volumptuous!!!


Last night we saw a fun movie called "flushed away". i had never heard of it, until last night. it was very cute and very funny and very cheesy. sometimes it is so refreshing to watch a kids movie!
