On Friday, I did a jewelry party for my friend Jen. I've always wondered how I am at sales - and the answer is not good. Apparently, when people tell me 'No', I'm supposed to try to talk them into saying 'Yes.' I figure No means No - it's the RA in me! Oh well - I'll stick it out for a few more months. Jen made the most amazing prosciutto-wrapped asparagus and champagne cocktails with champagne, pear juice and pomegranate juice. Very yummy!
On Saturday, Simon and I went to a co-worker's wedding. Afterward, we headed to the Columbus Crew game because Best Buy had offered Simon free tickets for some reason. Unfortunately, I got paged for work before Best Buy could give us our tickets, so we missed out. By the time I was finished, it was almost time for kick-off. Ugh. I was really looking forward to the game.
On Sunday, we went the Church at Polaris. It was very much like the Vineyard - ultra contemporary - the pastors wear jeans and loud shirts. I actually liked the message - it was about the conflict between worshipping God and worshipping your stuff. However, all the crazy singing with arms outstretched in the air was scary. I like music as much as the next person, but I never feel moved to hold my arms up in the air. I guess I always feel like that stuff is more for show than an actual profession of faith. "I'm so close to God I'm going to wave my hands in the air so I feel like I'm touching him/her." (Shouldn't God be beyond gender?) I waved my hands in the air at the New Kids concert and I certainly didn't feel particularly religious then.
After church, we went to the Mellow Mushroom pizza place and to the Westerville Mini-Golf/Batting Cages. I can actually hit a softball -- not as well as Simon, though He's a softball stud. He was hitting balls all over the place. I almost won mini-golf - just 4 points away. I even got a hole-in-one! Possibly my only hole-in-one ever. It prompted me to invent a hole-in-one dance, which was very fetching.
I'll try to be better about keeping this thing updated - my schedule is just obnoxious and I never feel like using my computer when I get home.
