Glad to hear all is swell and kickin'! I trust everything is in good shape. A big thank you to Stephen and Chris for the money. I love them so much and let them know that I will spend it solely on pirated Argentinean movies and mate. Also, I will keep Traci and her fam in my prayers.
I don’t have a ton of time to write today (which stinks ‘cause I have a lot to say) but oh well. First off, I got 2 packages today. The zonies got them in
T'was a good week. We started out by having an interesting experience at a less-active’s house. As I was sitting in their kitchen I heard this noise and turned my head. There was a bathroom to the direct right of me with someone using the bathroom. The only thing wrong with this picture is that this bathroom doesn’t have a door so I just waved back to the guy in the bathroom and tried to direct all of my attention to anything at all interesting in the room so I wouldn’t have to see Mr. dookie. Gotta love it, right?
It was a pretty normal week. Stinkin' cold!! Its supposed to be heating up soon but lately its been freezing! Luckily we have 2 nice heaters and they are amazing and I'm always toasty but those cocoa packets will for sure come in handy! We went to our branch president’s house for lunch this Friday and, low and behold, guess what we got to watch? Those, ever so timeless, Living Scripture cartoons. It was funny to watch them again after all these years ‘cause I totally remember them! We watched the “Tree of Life” one. Its funny, whenever I read the scriptures about Nephi and his family,
I met a recent convert named Fernanda (we call her Fernanda 22 ‘cause we have 2 Fernandas that we work with: One that’s 22 and one that’s 27) and she is so funny. She showed me the music she likes and its stuff like Vampire weekend. She’s way cool. She reminds me a lot of my good, dear friend Holly Green. Way cool!
This Sunday was good. During priesthood this guy sat by me who smelled like he’d kept his mouth unbrushed and closed for 35 years. Then he decided to breathe right in my face. Needless to say, I have no eyebrows left. Seriously, this guy was the bane of all hygienic existence. He just wanted to talk to me the entire time and, to top it off, he was very weird. He kept poking me with a toothpick, touching my scriptures, and kept bumping me while I was writing my talk. After that I just got up and went to another seat. It was good fun.
Oh, and I did give a talk in sacrament meeting this Sunday. It was on charity like my last talk (‘cause we were called to give talks that Saturday night) but it was revamped. It went over really well. I wasn’t nervous or anything. T’was a good show!
Oh, and I guess I should say that yes, this week WE HAD A BAPTISIM!! Fernanda (Fernanda 27) got baptized this week. We had to fill up the baptismal font with buckets of boiling water that we continually had to boil and pour in the font. It was fun! Elder
- Do you eat with members still?
- Did you make your banana bread from a mix or from scratch?
- Who’s in your district?
- Have you heard anything about Maxi and Noelle?
- Anything we can do for you on this end?
"Lullaby" by The Cure is playing in the cyber now and I think that’s big Bob Smith’s way of saying "its time to get going". Just know how much I love and appreciate you guys. Its been a year on the 15th that I received my call. Can you guys believe that? I remember opening my call by the island in grandma’s kitchen in my pajamas (after rushing over to the post office to pick it up). Remember that ha-ha? I remember opening it and reading "
P.S. A happiest Father’s day on the 17th, Dad! Thanks for the good advice! I’ll put it into play. And thanks for the terrific Morrissey cat toupee picture in the package. Moz would be proud. I’ll see what I can do about hooking you up with some nice Argentinean garb. Which are basically shell suits, nice huh? Also, I've noticed some of my comps have had something from their dads missions like plaques, ties, dirty undies, etc. Do you think you could hook me up with something in a future package from your mish like that? Anything but kimchi! If you have any questions just ask me. Thank you. I love you!
P.S.S. 7 months. I got that going for me....which is nice!
