5 things I am currently loving list

1. Mad Men. I watched season 1 this weekend and I pretty much love it. Well, actually I kind of hate every story line that has to do with Don Draper... but my love for Penny, Pete and Joan totally make up for Don's dumbness.

2. Ryan Heshka paintings. I used to blog about him on myspace but then kind of forgot about him for 3 years. Yesterday I remembered.

3. Georgia Peaches, only from Georgia.
4. Page cxvi I really love hymns. Like a lot.
5. Paul Newman

girls vs. boys

Most of my guy friends are musicians. They talk about the same things over and over and over and over.

This is what they always want to talk about:
guitars, cab, bass, orange, frets, tone, reverb, lyrics, fender, blues, deville, harvest moon, tabs, marshall, tube, peavey, etc. Sometimes they will talk about food and sports and sci-fi.

This is what I always want to talk about:
dresses, cupcakes, makeup, nailpolish, starbucks, crafts, taking pictures, jewelry, nancy drew, apple butter, true blood, cute boys, old pictures of ladies in fun dresses, vintage circus things, anthropologie, dolly parton, blogs, etc.

Is this true for everyone else or just me?

We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake, so that his life may be revealed in our body. So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.
2 corinthians 4:8-12

internet shminternet

Dear friends,
I haven't had internet in about 2 1/2 weeks. It's been pretty terrible. And normally I would tell you the entire situation, but I would probably end up saying something incredibly mean so I will refrain. Good news, I do get internet at work!
Love, Allison
