i suck at titles

Time for a quick blog entry! I read the entire Cardcaptor Sakura manga yesterday and the day before, so that was fun.

I had emailed a draft of my reflections on some readings for this Lenten Reflection booklet that the church I attend at school is making. I received my first email back, which told me that I retold the reading instead of making it into some kind of real-life situation, and that some of my phrases such as "there is" and "it is" were made into contractions so as to sound "more like I'm talking." I guess I use contraction sometimes; everybody does. But I wrote the stuff just like I would say it out loud - after writing habitually for how many years, I think I know what my own voice sounds like. So...that was perturbing. Also, I would consider a Lenten Reflection booklet to require somewhat formal writing. APPARENTLY NOT. I'm sure I'll take a stand, but I'll probably have somebody else look at it first.

My sister has the flu. We watched "Beauty Shop" with Queen Latifah this afternoon, which was worth it just to see Kevin Bacon.

I've been massing a pile of crap in the middle of my room to take back to school. It's that end-of-vacation-feeling that's taken over now - like, as nice as it would be to stay home and keep relaxing, there are a lot of things I want to get done, and this person that is me that needs more shaping, so I need to kick some ass. I think I can do that, ;)

But I need to leave, because Ryan is coming to my house so we can watch the two new episodes of Battlestar Galactica (one of which is airing tonight!).
