- Booth to Sweets: Want to come bowling with us?
- Bones: Yeah bowling, at the bowling rink.
- Booth to Bones: Alley. Bowling alley. Bones: Alley, right.
In the past week (literally 7 days) I have been ONLY watching Bones. I am in season 4..yeah I am obsessed. I think I like it so much because of Dr. Temperance Brennan aka Bones. She is just so smart and completely socially awkward. It’s this whole new level of awkward though…beyond home schooled awkward. She has feelings but doesn’t all at the same time. She only thinks from a logical and scientific view so the things she says and her inability to understand why people do things from the heart and not mind is fascinating.
I can’t answer this with just one answer..it’s too hard. So I have chosen to list some of my favorites through the years.
- Sleeping Beauty
- Beauty and the Beast
- Finding Nemo
- Almost Famous
- V for Vendetta
- Count of Monte Cristo
- (500) Days of Summer
- The Holiday
What can I say? He is tall, dark and handsome. He has happy eyes and a great smile. He will be boyishly handsome for the rest of his life and that is great for all of us. Lifetime warranty :)
I mean…do I need to……even explain?
3. Kate Winslet
She is my favorite actor. Not actress. Actor. I could go on and on about why I think she is fabulous. On screen she is amazing. Her body of work is outstanding and as a woman she is completely comfortable with who she is and that is something to appreciate. Well I think she is genuine as well. I’ve never met her but when I do, I really feel like she won’t let me down. Look her up on Ricky Gervais’s show Extras..so funny!
4. Rachel McAdams
I think she is fearless. She takes risks and in her business that is ballsy. And I think that is why people like to work with her because they know she will go that extra mile for them.
For the same reasons I like Rachel, I like Ryan. For his work at least…he also a babe. And yes, I am still pulling for them to get back together.
In the past two years I have gone through many changes. Thinking about it, I realize those changes have all been very big and in many different areas of my life. The easiest changes to throw out there would be that I switched jobs (from Panera to Apple..UPGRADE) and that I graduated college. Yay me!
Around everything else, I have moved a couple times and made new friends. I didn’t lose past ones but just gained new ones and in the gain and over time, I became closer to the new and pulled away from the old. To put a layer on top of that, I have become close to the old again but in a different way then how the relationships originally were. It makes sense in my head. I guess it becomes even more specific to be centered around who I am becoming. Ever since I was young I have been all about meeting everyone around me and learning from everyone. I think people are put into my path so that I can learn a certain thing, and then in some way I move on to learn a new thing about myself. With that happening all the time with me, people are also recycled because they change as well. My close friends and family have learned that I am a social butterfly and have accepted this about me. What’s great about being a social butterfly is that I learn a lot from a lot of people. The bad thing is that it is exhausting and sometimes I have trouble making time for everyone. That is where things get difficult because I have to start the choosing game. This past year specifically I have become grounded again. I have found myself very much a part of a community. My church community. I think the past 2 years has been about that first and foremost. 2009 was about getting comfortable again in a church community and learning about MissioDei and seeing that I can trust the people in the community. In my past I was hurt by a church I was very much invested in and ever since I have had difficulties trusting a church again. BUT MissioDei has broken me down. 2010 was about me actually becoming invested. And because of all this, I have found myself wanting to invest in Him again. Genuinely. God is funny that way. He knows how to speak to all of us in the way we personally need to be spoken to. So while I have gone through some major changes, they all were really just leading me closer to Him. And well now that I have realized this, I am all that more happy about where I am and where I will be in the next 2 year…when I do another one of these.

- Me: I don't know. I was silly.
- Bea: You don't like your tattoo?
- Me: Not really. I did for a long time, but not anymore.
- Bea: Just wash it off, silly.
- Me: Thanks Einstein.
I was walking far from home Where the names were not burned along the wall Saw a building high as heaven But the door was so small, door was so small
I saw rain clouds, little babies And a bridge that had tumbled to the ground I saw sinners making music And I dreamt of that sound, dreamt of that sound
I was walking far from home But I carried your letters all the while I saw lovers in a window Whisper “want me like time, want me like time”
I saw sickness bloom in fruit trees I saw blood and a bit of it was mine I saw children in a river But their lips were still dry, lips were still dry
I was walking far from home And I found your face mingled in the crowd Saw a boat full of believers Sail off talking too loud, talking too loud
I saw sunlight on the water Saw a bird fall like a hammer from the sky An old woman on the speed train She was closing her eyes, closing her eyes
I saw flowers on a hillside And a millionaire pissing on the lawn Saw a prisoner take a pistol And say “join me in song, join me song”
Saw a car crash in the country Where the prayers run like weeds along the road I saw strangers stealing kisses Leaving only their clothes, only their clothes
Saw a white dog chase its tail And a pair of hearts carved into a stone I saw kindness and an angel Crying take me back home, take me back home
Saw a highway, saw an ocean I saw widows in the temple to the Lord Naked dancers in the city How they spoke for us all, spoke for us all
I saw loaded linen tables And a motherless colt then it was gone I saw hungry brothers waiting With the radio on, radio on
I was walking far from home Where the names were not burned along the wall Saw a wet road form a circle And it came like a call, came like a call from the Lord” —Iron & Wine : “Walking Far From Home”
