There's a party tonight at the Greenhills for Jon Morefield's 43rd birthday. Mike wants me to go with him. I really don't want to, but I probably will. If I were extroverted instead of introverted, I would enjoy parties, but I usually find them to be a drag. I'm not very good at small talk, and who wants to have serious conversations at a party? So I'm probably a drag to them, too. But we were invited and we love Jon, so I'll go. Besides, Mike will probably need a designated driver to bring him home.

This whole business with the church has really pulled my spirits down this week. Whoever warned, "people who enjoy eating sausage and obeying the law should not watch either being made," knew what they were talking about. Not that any new laws were made, but seems like there was a lot of "baloney" that came out of it. I've never seen such disarray.

And Sunday when we go to church, nothing will have changed. No one will talk about it, few will even care enough to find out what happened. Maybe Tom will surprise me and address the issues in his homily, I would really like that, but I don't expect it. Bishop Gray has meetings scheduled in July for discussion of GC06. I guess he wanted the dust to settle, too.

Benji wants me to try posting my favorite links to my sidebar. I found the instructions and printed them out. He also sent some helpful hints. Surely I can do this.

My horoscope today says, Are you ready to get back into the debate? Fully prepared and well rehearsed? Oh well, never mind. You can wing it. I wish it said party instead of debate, I'd be more enthused about making merry.

Yeah, I pretty much hate parties, too. I'd much rather hang out with a couple of good friends instead.

If you can't figure out the sidebar thing, just email me and I'll give you the specific instructions (I just couldn't post them in this comment section b/c the html was confusing the site, I think).

Some people will care. Don't give up on our church yet, and remember you're kinda in the conservative section/stronghold of the church (MS).

I did it! That was pretty easy. I'll do the rest when I have more time. Thanks for your help.
