Jasper Speaks:

Just took an online candidate match and it looks like Fred Thompson is my closest match running for President. I mean I really do like Law and Order so ...

Had an amazing time just playing with Jackson last night. I am so blessed. He giggled and was in such a good mood. He is in a stage where he ignores toys and just wants us to read to him all the time. I know he is going to be SO SMART! He already is. He just grabs a book and walks ove rto me and looks up and says, "Da?" How can you resist that? He ignores television completely. He doesn't even watch the commercials. He just wants to read. Cool!

Off to chi-town tonight with Kendra, Jon, Kevin, Daniel, Betsy and maybe Michelle. Jackson has to stay behind with my sister. That makes me a little sad.

Antigone ROCKS!

I love Bread Co. (Panera for you non-Stl-ers) Fridays! I always get an asiago cheese bagel and veggie cream cheese and a hazelnut coffee on Friday. YUM!

Long weekend coming up! We are headed to Chicago on Friday at about six which means we will get there about 11 or so. Then we are off to Aislinn's storage locker to clean it out and keep what we want and throw out the rest. Then it is back to the Lou. Fun. Not. I won't get to see Jackson for those two days and I won't get rest either. We are taking a couple of guys from the youth group, my nephew and Betsy so the fellowship should be good at least!

Jasper Speaks:

I am MUCHO better today. I woke up feeling better than I had in MANY days. I got a good night's sleep and I am just much more joyful today. I got to spend the evening chilaxin with the fam and I think that helped as well. It was nice to have a "do nothing" kind of night.

Also, I am pumped about the Youth Specialties Convention. It is the first weekend in November and I can't wait! Should be a great time! REALLY! Plus, I get to see Doug Fields! Yippee!! However, I do wish some of my far off youth minsitry friends could be there! We still have an open invitation if you want to come!

Jasper Speaks:

So, I am very BLUE today. I am not sure why but I woke up feeling very emotional (like I could cry at any minute) and haven't shook it at all. Am I a WOMAN now?

Things I am thinking today:

- Is it Friday yet?
- Eating makes you happy
- I could not function to do my job without coffee in my life
- I could really care less what you do your research paper on
- I can't stand the twit who keeps missing my zero hour class. I am here at 6:00 AM everyday I have no sympathy for you
- In spite of everything, I don't really mind being a teacher
- I love being a Youth Pastor
- I long to really sleep in
- I love my wife and kid
- I miss college and the carefree world you get to live in
- Ice Cream is God's gift to us
- Fat people really ARE harder to kidnap
- Is it truly possible for me to be HORMONAL?
