The party was calm, but a lot of fun.

Posted by thesinger on November 11, 2007

We had no broken bones, no wedgies, and no shortage of food. I think those in and of themselves make a great start to any party. In reality, not a lot of the guys showed up until around 11 and then most of them left after a while to go home and sleep. WHAT A SHAME AND A PITY!!! At least now we know who the real guys are.

Ok, so perhaps it’s not as bad as I want to make it sound, for instance, two of the guys were going hunting in the morning, and actually needed to get some sleep, so, I guess they are sortof real men.

We did have some smashing food; bratwursts, Mom’s cabbage salad, lots of random snacks, lots of random pop, and some desert that Kevin’s mom made. Just good times!

One notable person at the campout was one of our ministers, Julian Nisly. He has been attending our SS class regularly (because the ministers can decide which class to attend) so we decided to invite him to our campout. It was just good times for all!!!

Ok, I think now I will mention that this has been a really lame and rambly post so far, and by all appearances will continue to be lame. So, perhaps I should end this post because of the lameness I am becoming increasingly aware of.

Or, perhaps, I shouldn’t, if you see what I mean.

Like, yeah, I think I like that idea, so here goes.

Church this morning was a little different than normal because some students from an Anabaptist History and Thought class from Hesston College attended. So, our awesome SS class was “joined” (from Winnie-Pooh) by three students, Ben, Issac, and Drew. They mostly listened, but it was good to be “joined” (said in a really spooky tone). After church we had a carry-in meal to give us a time of less formal interaction. Random question from interaction: “Are you 19?” Answer: “No, I’m 17.” I sortof get a kick out of making people guess my age.

After the carry-in, there was a more formal time of questions and answers led by Bishop David. That was really very interesting.

This afternoon I decided I wanted to go play piano at Jacob’s house, so I did. That was NICE.

I think I will go prepare to go to the singing.

Peace and noodles.

That is the name of the day that I am writing this on. Why am I writing on this date, and not on any other date? Because I am a busy man who has little time to do random and fun things. I have many things that I save for Sunday afternoons. For example, I could fill up my delicious Sunday afternoon with several activities:
1. I could be singing and working over some Anonymous Somebodies music. This is a very enjoyable activity. The main problems are that I need to be in the right mood, and have set apart a fairly sizable block of time to really absorb what the music is saying.
2. I could be messing around with pictures already on my computer, or creating new ones. This is also a great way to spend leisurely Sunday afternoons.
3. I could be reading. I have several books that Lyle Stutzman loaned to me on music theory and conducting that would be very enjoyable and profitable to read.
4. I could be working and thinking about Youth Group committee kinds of things. This would NOT be a very restful thing or very enjoyable. Therefore, I will attempt to resist even the urge of thinking about it.
5. I could be lying on my bed, listening to some choral, classical, or otherwise nice music. I recently set up two additional speakers in conjunction with the stereo that I have now. They are positioned so that when I lay in my bed, all four speakers are pointed directly at me. One is at the foot of my bed, the second is located at the side of my bed, and the other two are at the other side of the room, pointed in my general direction. So, what I have is a lot a potential for a great swell of sound. I like this. I like this a LOT!!
6. I could be posting some random and generally useless information on my blog. I am doing that now, even as I type. Why am I doing that now? Because Sunday is a day when I am not obligated to go to work. Therefore, I can goof around and do lighter kinds of activities, like posting.

So, this is a rundown of what I can fill up my Sunday afternoons with. There is more that could be mentioned, but I’m feeling the urge to do something else.

Peace out,
