[Thursday (P+6)]

I felt more awake when my 7am alarm went off this morning than when it did yesterday -- having gone to bed ~9pm as opposed to ~midnight.

Jeff M. said on Friday night Liz&Megan's small group was at Orleans for Trivia and he saw them and stopped by to say hi. The trivia question was which female musician set some record for digital music sales in 2010. He guessed Lady Gaga (which was wrong).
He said his second choice was Jesus. Someone said, "But Jesus isn't female," and in unison a whole bunch of people said, "Elizabeth [my surname] thinks so..." ♥♥♥

I told him how Ari had commented, "A lot more of your people know about my lesbian Christology than my people do, which says a lot about the kinds of people we are, I think."

I think it was Harold who said, "Elizabeth is not afraid of conflict. This is a true thing." -- I disputed this...

Ben said to Harold, "Did Liz tell you she gets all her news from your facebook feed?"
Harold: "Other people have told me that, but Liz did not." (He said he once posted saying no more NYT for the month because he'd hit the paywall and Molly gifted him 3 months becaue she said she needed him to tell her what she needed to know from the NYT.)

cadenzamuse called ~11am, while Harold and I were still talking, despite office hours having ended ~10am. He and I kept talking until ~11:45am and then I went to the gym and got groceries and came home ~2:30pm.

cadenzamuse and I did phonecall later -- which, okay, had the problem I always have with people I haven't talked to in ages -- "How have I been? Um, it's been 6 months... Um, stuff... At this exact moment, nothing is v. exciting..." But I was glad to get to hear from her -- and possibly we will get better at this if we do it more frequently :)

FCS Bible/book study potluck barbecue was fine. I was glad I had brought fake burgers so I could eat food. We had some good conversation about how next round might go.

Marlin's small group was meeting afterward and he invited me and Harold to tag along 'cause it was just him and Jamie and Lisa C.

Harold's going to the Zoo tomorrow, where he'll see dinosaurs -- because birds are dinosaurs.
I think it was in Harold joking about having a dinosaur dealer that Jamie mentioned if we couldn't get a donkey for the Palm Sunday Donkey Walk, we could have someone riding an ostrich.
I said I could imagine Carmen riding an ostrich -- so Jesus was a tiny blonde 6-year-old girl, I'm glad we can agree on that.

I've been frequently biking during ~rush hour (e.g., heading to 8:30am office hours) and it was so nice to bike home ~11:30pm when there was barely any traffic! (Yes, after about an hour, Marlin's husband came to pick him and eventually Lisa C. headed home, but the 3 of us stayed for quite a while.)

Thus says God to these bones: "I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live. I will lay sinews on you, and will cause flesh to come upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live; and you shall know that I am God." (Ezekiel 37:5-6, NRSV, alt.)

Good things about today:
  • seen at gym: Navy unisex bathrooms
  • seen on facebook: Ten Rules for Fat Girls -- which I think is good advice for people, period; and which 3 more people shared after I Shared it
  • phonecall with cadenzamuse
  • I got compliments on my "I Think Therefore I'm Dangerous" t-shirt (which I got at Faces while at Smith and haven't worn in ages).
  • [redacted v.2]
Things I did well today:
  • got some groceries, including Boca Burgers MorningStar patties (including some for the potluck BBQ)
  • CWM announcement email draft
Things I am looking forward to (doing [better]) tomorrow:
["anything that you're looking forward to, that means you're facing tomorrow with joy, not trepidation," as Ari says]
  • Boloco smoothies with EarthSpirit!Sarah
  • FCS summer small group meeting
