yesterday was the celebration of kyle loeffel’s 21st birthday. His mother got together a bunch of his friends for a BBQ and a Kane County Cougars game. It was supposed to be a surprise, which it was to me, i didn’t know there was a BBQ, but kyle knew something was up. Poor kid has been talking about going to Medieval Times for his 21st since he was like 7. I wish we could have done that instead. who doesn’t like cornish game hens and knights? really, anyone?
For father’s day, i went golfing with my dad, papa, and uncle mike. I don’t golf, to start, but i was up for the outdoors as today is beautiful, and i like to spend time with my dad. But man, golf sucks. I was getting so pissed at that stupid little ball that i quit around the 8th hole just because i was getting so worked up that it was no fun. So i became permanent cart driver for my uncle (who brought sunflower seeds, but when the bag got low, he pocketed them so he could finish them off...jerk) turns out golf is really terrible if you aren’t getting hole-in-ones. I like mini golf though, need to do more of that. In fact, i just started throwing my ball on the green when we’d get up there and putt. It was the best part.
I knew the beer wench (is that the technical term, or just what my uncle calls her?), it was Andrea, rich’s girlfriend. saw her about fifty times through out the 4.5 hour 18 holes. Looooonngggg time. don’t think i’ll be golfing again for a while. my dad bought me a new golf glove cos i was still using the one he gave me in 7th grade. i think im giving it to him as a father’s day present now..hehe.
now im gonna get outside and enjoy this sun.
i love you all

There is nothing better than just sitting in a park with two old friends and talking about anything and eveything that come up. I love you guys.

staying in theme with the day’s posts, i think there should have been one more law laid down by the almighty. Though Shalt Not Rideth Your Son Like a Horse...eth. Why you ask? because i was just at the top of the stairs on my hands in knees talking to my dad who was downstairs, and my mom sat on me and said “giddyup!” i refused to move from fear of breaking, but that didn’t stop her from yelling yeehaw. What an odd mother, i tell you.
Practice was good tonight, dave was gone so it was just the other three...duh. we got some cool harmonies down for chris’ back up. im happy with them. my fingers are raw from playing the guitar the whole time. i like that too.

I've been feeling a bit more atheist than usual these past couple days. Maybe it's because I'm around my mother more often. Her being the strong Christian that she is, makes it sort of difficult to live with her. At dinner, the privilege of saying grace is pasted around the table, a different person each night. For quite some time, i've been excluded from this for obvious reasons. But now my mom has decided that i should say grace...only it's not a prayer, it's just being thankful. I have nothing against being thankful, but you're not fooling anyone mom. It's a prayer. So i thought i'd call her bluff: Last night I started grace with "Dear God..." and she requested that i stop. I guess my blasphemy wasn't what she was going for.
The subject for this is something I heard this morning while eaves dropping on a guy in a cube near mine. Such deceit in this company. Everyone is out for the gain of their department, their office, them self.
Then again, this applies to the previous statement about religion. The church plays that game like it's its job. Which i guess it sort of is. They only show people what the people want to see, and what the church will allow them to see. Everyone has their own answers to the little gaps in Christianity: "God is too powerful for you to understand" seems to be a favorite. Well then what the hell was god thinking when he did it?!?! why create something that the people he made and loves can't understand? What's the point? Way to have a cop out answer. Why not look a little harder and say "Oh, the sparrows have a differently shaped beak to accommodate their eating habits" It's called evolution, not creation. Single cell to multiple cell to complex beings. It happens in labs and in nature today. Why not million of years ago? What? oh thats right, there is no reason why not?
but i digress...and apologies for going off, but you can see that i've been surrounded by christianity for too long in this house. woo. Well, another day at work ahead of me. At least i've been here for an hour and done nothing. I got some honey for my tea this morning, that should kick things up a bit. On the drive here, Dave and saw an old man walking down the side of the road in a full robe that he seemed to have pieced together himself. He had a long white beard and a tall staff with him. I think he may have been a wizard of sorts. I'd really like to go back and find him and ask him his story. I bet it would be a good one.

Yesterday was my little sis's 16th birthday. I got her a card that i found at Dominicks that had the best message ver on the front. "Welcome to the world little one." Turns out the inside said "Congrats on your new baby boy!" but i felt the message on the outside suited the occation so well that i just bought it anyway.
CGTS is comming along quite nicely. We roughly recorded some stuff last night, but the damn files all got corrupted somehow and we'll probably have to do it again. Watch "Along came Polly" last night. Maybe im just a sucker for romantic comedies (my favorite is "When Hary Met Sally") but i thought the movie was great. Had the humor, the emotions, and the sex while wearing flippers. what more could you ask for? nothing, thats what.
grrr..do you ever just want a switch to turn of your emotions sometimes? It would be quite convenient. make a lot of things easier. But alas, none such a switch exists. I guess i'll just have to learn how to deal with them. thats the healthy thing to do, right? and of course by deal with, i mean bottle up.
