Twisted Sister

The following program contains graphic violence, mature subject matter and scenes which may be disturbing to some viewers, viewer discretion is strongly advised. 

  How twisted am I?  I find these warnings before television programs helpful, not because it offers me insight into what TV programs to avoid and the upcoming content and what not, but because I can run around, grab a snack, catch up on some other stuff around my apartment and be back in time for when my TV program resumes without missing a beat due to the 'alarm function' of this warning. 

 Watching Dexter last night I thought the announcer gave particular emphasis to "strongly"
in his cautionary warning, like: what kind of sicko are you to be watching this? Do your parents know you're watching this? Your pastor? Are you sure you want to go through with this? Right now, for Dexter, oh yes I am... it's deliciously twisted.

  I am traveling to Africa on a mission's trip this spring to Tanzania and Malawi for almost seven weeks.  I've never been to Africa before and I'm really excited. I've always wanted to go!

 I'm thinking I should start preparing...  I have been practicing my African geography on this game I found on the internet. I have looked into what to pack. I have- praise the Lord- all the funding I need to go. I have my shots booked for March... ouch.  But I don't think I've totally wrapped my head around the reality of this pending trip.  I've read books about Rwanda and South Africa and Kenya in the past... but I need one for this area! To get into the culture/climate/life a head of the game... 

 Any book ideas?

The Year of Technology!

   Why hello! So... it's been a while. My computer was dying, I could barely handle checking work email let along doing anything "fancy" online. And I may have even physically assaulted my computer once or twice as a result.  But now I'm back... with my sweet white hot macbook- ooh la la!!    

   New year; new computer; new printer; new dvd/vcr; new telephone... what's next?! 

  And in case you think I've been indulging a little may I remind you that most of my tech up to this point was years old, some even decades (!?)... including my 15 year old stereo which I still have and use!
