Why the name "bLog in Your Own Eye"?

Matthew 7:3 - 5 "Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye."

We should all endeavor to think rightly about ourselves and graciously about one another. We all have specks and logs in our eyes.

"You'll Shoot your eye out!"

Well, those of you who have seen the beloved classic, "A Christmas Story", will know where I got the title of this post from. Its actually nowhere near "beloved classic" on my list, but now is not the time for movie criticism (one of my hidden talents). I'm actually posting to tell you about the wonderful, pleasing to the eye, picture now posted behind the blog title. I know it looks dreadful, and its a pain to look at, but I'll be changing it soon. So, just another Christmas Challenge while its up, post a comment saying how long you can stare at the picture without blinking. Have fun!

Words to Remember

"If I have seen further [than certain other men] it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants." –Isaac Newton

"I know the difference between giving advice and taking orders. You've had my advice, and now its the time for orders." -Trumpkin the Dwarf, Prince Caspian


Last night :)

Last night, my Church had a Fall Festival! It was going to be outdoors, but it was really, really, really, really, really, really, really, cold for South Carolina. They did have the s'mores and the hayride outdoors though. But inside, the hired a Caller, and so I learned to Square Dance! It is really hard to remember what the terms mean, and where to go, and which way is left and right...(unfortunately, I still struggle with that) But Square Dancing was a lot of fun, and there was BBQ which was absolutely delicious. Being someone born and raised in the South, I've been pretty much raised on BBQ. Back to the topic, after I ate, I pretty much danced the rest of the time there. I also should win the award for most hands touched in one day, because I probably touched a gazillion hands last night, and I'm personally not at all fond of touching other peoples hands. So, that was pretty much my whole evening!


I think I might look into Square Dancing lessons, so if you've ever had more experience than I, do tell!

Hello! I found this on my online classes blog, and thought "you know, this is pretty awesome", so here ya go!

You know, I'm not really feeling like telling you right now, so deal with it. :)

2. YOUR GANGSTA NAME: (first 3 letters of real name plus "izzle")
3. YOUR DETECTIVE NAME: (favorite color and favorite animal)
Skybluedogg (2 g's on purpose :D )
4. YOUR SOAP OPERA NAME: (your middle name and the street you live on)

7. YOUR JAPANESE NAME: (2nd letter of your first name, 3rd letter of your last name, first 2 letters of your middle name, last 2 letters of your first name)
i personally feel that this is making fun of Japanese names, so i'm purposely skipping it. :)
8. YOUR WITNESS PROTECTION NAME: (both parents middle names)
Lee Anna
9. YOUR GOTH NAME: (black and the name of one of your pets)
this is just nonsense....

Anyway, I'm gonna tag Southern Commander, sir.iain (if he wants), and ֆlick Mysterζ. And if I didn't tag you but you want to do it, feel free to do so!


A Pumpkin thingy...

I was tagged, so I guess I now have to put it on my blog. So here ya go:

A woman was asked by a coworker, "What is it like to be a Christian?"

The coworker replied, "It is like being a pumpkin." God picks you from the patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off of you. Then He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff.He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, and greed. Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see."

This was passed on to me by another pumpkin. Now it's your turn to pass it to other pumpkins. I liked this enough to send it to all the pumpkins in my patch!!

And I'm not gonna tag anyone, because I don't really think its worthy to be passed on, though it makes a good point. :)

This is one of my Abstracts...Cool isn't it?
I'm tagging sir.iain, and I would tag more, but they don't get on their computers much, so it'd be a waste. Anyway, talk to y'all later!

Blog Award!

Well, I was given the Million Dollar Friend Award!! I didn't deserve it though... But my BFF Southern Commander apparently thought I deserved it, so here I am, with an Award. Many thanks to Southern Commander for it!! I think that I just might pass it on to sir.iain now, who has been such a helpful and wonderful friend, even though I barely know him. Also I'll give it my other near and dear friend care, who has been such an awesome friend through the years.

Anyway, hope everyone out there in cyberspace is having a truly wonderful day!

The Gruesome Tooth Story

WARNING: Long post ahead. I would try and fix it, but I'm too lazy. :)

Well, it all happened on Thursday. I had this baby tooth which had no big tooth under it to come in, so it would have had to be pulled anyway. But along with that, the tooth was ankleosed, which means it was attached to my jaw bone, and was sinking lower, and lower into my gums. So it was level with my gum-line when I got it pulled. When I got to the dentist's office, they gave me shots in the gum (which i really don't mind, except i saw the needle this time...) and soon the right side of my mouth was numb. After that, they went it and tried to get a little more working space (since it was level with the gum-line). Then the dentist got some sort of tool and grabbed my tooth and started moving it back and forth. He then said "Now, you might hear a little crack" and so I heard a few little pops, and was thinking to myself "Oh, this isn't that bad", I heard the deafening crack of my tooth. Seriously, it was pretty gross even to hear. But anyway, I thought they got the tooth out and it was over, but they wanted to X-Ray it to make sure there weren't any fragments left, because if there were, it could cause in infection. Well, there were still some of the roots left in there, so they dived back in, this time with a drill. Oh, I hate those drills. It feels weird firstly, but then it flings something all in your mouth and over your face(I don't know if it was tooth or water...). Then there's the smell. It was horrible, plus the smell was a taste in my mouth(yuck), so I just had to live with it. Well, after he grabbed the last shard of tooth out, he was going to play it safe and X-Ray it one more time. Unfortunately, there was still a tiny little piece left. So out came the drill, and the plier thingy. I won't go into detail about the drill again, but I must say that there was a lot of blood. Blood, with whatever the drill was flinging around, does NOT taste good. Don't ever try it if you can help it. Anyway, Finally, they got out the little piece, and since he was sure that it was the only piece left, he didn't X-Ray it again. Then the assistant came back with an ice pack that I was supposed to hold on my cheek to reduce swelling, and they stuffed a wad of gauze in there so it would slow the bleeding. So by now, I was looking like I just got beat up really bad. As I walked into the waiting room to leave, one of my friends was sitting there (waiting for his appointment). Now, having a friend see me in this state, was the last thing I wanted to happen, but it did. I could barely talk also (the gauze caused this), so it was hard to talk and explain what happened. So now I'm feeling almost back to normal, my tooth is still sore sometimes so I can't and don't chew on that side of my mouth. But yesterday morning, I was SO hungry because I had been eating liquid things, and we happened to be having bacon and eggs. (FYI, I have braces). I was anxious to eat a lot of bacon, but I ended up popping off one of my brackets. We called the Orthodontist, and he came into the office on a Saturday, to cut the wire. So I'm still recovering from an exciting weekend. *GASP*, I think I'm finally done with my story, so you are now allowed to go about your merry lives.

*darn it*

Well, I can't seem to get the poll on my blog to work, hence you shall post a comment, giving me your answer about my gruesome tooth story!



Wow! I really am slacking on my posting, sorry everyone. (its not like anyone ever reads my junk anyway...) Anyway, I would really like to create a play list, since there are some AWESOME songs that I'd like y'all to hear. But I need my dear Father's permission before I do, and he's been pretty busy, so..... But I'll try to get it up soon! I'm WAY into the oldies, so you'll get lots of 50's-70's music on it. :) I just absolutely love old music!!!!!! I'd go berserk without them! I apologize for being random. That's just the way I am. Oh, and if you're wondering what I've been up to, I can tell you a really gruesome story about getting my tooth pulled! I'll make a poll, because some of you of the "weaker stomach" types might have a hard time. Well, I'd better scoot, Cheerio!

Hello everyone! Sorry that I haven't posted in a while, I've been busy with school (you know how that can be...). But I'm catching up.....kind of........ Anyway, enough of that. I got to see Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and it was EXCELLENT!!! Usually with movies, when they make multiple sequels and all, the latest ones are terrible, but this one was not. If you loved the older Indy movies, then you'll be very happy with the latest! They had a great cast, including Harrison Ford who is one of the best actors ever. It also had a great storyline and plot, which pretty much makes the movie. They really just don't make movies like this anymore, so it was great for me to see that there are still some good movies left in the filmakers today. So, if you haven't seen it, and you loved the other Indy movies, then you definately need to see this one.

The Fair

If you've ever been someplace where you smell cinnamon rolls, elephant ears, funnel cakes, pizza, soda, hot dogs, hamburgers, and deep-fried pickles, then I am most positive that you were at a fair. I had the privilege of going to the fair in my town twice, once with my family, and once with a friend. I really liked the rides where you laid down on your stomach and flew around, that was awesome. And of course you have to do the Ferris Wheel first to scope out the park, and decide what to do first. More of my favorite rides are the swings that are so much fun, and the bench-like things that you can ride in the air across the fairground. We also got to pet the animals, and eat. I love eating, but thankfully I'm not fat. Anyway, I was noticing how the fair brings such an odd assortment of people together in one place. Its like the candy assortment you can buy at bulk candy stores, with good candy and bad candy, except its with people. It also brings out the best, and worst in people's personalities. You get to see the true person at work at the fair because there are so many different surroundings that your patience most of all, gets tested with your friends, your family, and the ride workers too. Anyhow, I'm sure you're getting bored by my long, long post, so I'll let you go about your merry way. As I always say, "Live now, post later."!
