**Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, find line 4. Write down what it says.
--Zephaniah: Zephaniah focused on the coming day of the Lord, which would purge Judah, resulting in a remnant used to bless the entire world.
**Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What do you touch first?
--I’m at work, and its my phone.
**What is the last thing you watched on TV?
--We we’re playing Mario Party 5 on GameCube. That was the last thing I ‘watched’ on TV.
**WITHOUT LOOKING, guess what the time is.
**Now look at the clock, what is the actual time?
**With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?
--Other people rustling around at their desks.
**When did you last step outside? What were you doing?
--I walked out of our office to go and speak to someone working on the gardens outside. I’d seen them yesterday when hubby and I were out for a ride. I forget that when we’re out on the motorcycle that with all the biking regalia on people don’t recognize me/us. There I was madly waving at them and they just looked at me strangely. Today I had to explain who exactly had been being silly in their general direction.
**Before you came to this website, what did you look at?
--My guestbook and notes.
**What are you wearing?
--Rust coloured top, beige pants, and brown shoes (That doesn’t sound like that works, but it’s ok to me)
**Did you dream last night?
--I almost ALWAYS dream, and often to many to recount, but last night . . . . ummmm, no I can’t say I can remember what I dreamt.
**When did you last laugh?
--Last night playing Mario Party 5 with husband. We were the “Pure Evil” team and whooped the CPU teams butt!!!! Way to kick A--!!!
**What is on the walls of the room you are in?
--I’m in my cubicle. I have a 120 day timeposter to keep important dates. I have a bulletin board to keep important items and phone numbers. I have a variety of photos – friends, wedding, kids. “Children’s Ministry Core Values”, Kid’s Praise Choir Schedule. Crosswalk Sunday Morning Schedule, a lovely postcard from Laura-Jane, and other random notes.
**Seen anything weird lately?
--Interim Lead Pastor just stuck his tongue out at me.
**What is the last film you saw?
--Rented – House of Sand and Fog. Heart wrenching, but amazing. A well deserved nomination for Ben Kingsley.
**If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy first?
--This is going to sound totally hokie, but the first bit of money would go to my church. I know, I know – I can hear you groaning even from here. But its true – they could use it. After that was done – the first thing that came to my head was NEW VEHICLES for T and I!!
**If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?
--toughy – everything I’ve started to write down makes me think of the step that is needed before what I want to ‘change’ can happen. How fair is that? I suppose that I would make the rich realize what ungrateful, uncompassionate, greedy flakes they are. Make them give half their money to the poor who will use it wisely, generously, and usefully.
**Do you like to dance?
--I used to love it, unfortunately I haven’t done any dancing since the 80’s and my style hasn’t changed much. Don’t picture that – it wouldn’t be pretty.
**Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her?
--Almost anything but Shirley, Beatrice, Charlotte, Brenda or Dot. My daughter will NOT be named after her grandmothers.
**Imagine your first child is a boy, what do you call him?
--If you asked my husband – Shadrach, Meshach, and/or Abednego. Actually he wants triplets. All so he can say “Shadrach, Meshack and Abednego – off to bed you go”. I on the other hand have completely different view on what to call our son (if we have one).
**Would you ever consider living abroad?
--A Tuscan Villa sounds lovely, but I somehow can’t see it in my future. I’d miss Canada.
Cheers!! - LJ
