A Quick Review...

Some of you (or perhaps many) have heard of Ben Stein's movie "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed". Last night, Cory and I decided to go see it. It was more of my choice than his... but Cory's a good sport and didn't seem to mind going. I don't want to give too much away (for those of you who want to see it)... but basically it is a debate between Darwinism and Intelligent Design. It's like a documentary that you'd see on the History Channel. If you want my honest opinion... I would say that the movie was interesting. There were things I didn't know... but there was nothing GROUND BREAKING. Four people actually got up and left (out of the 12 or 15 that were there)... and it was all I could do not to nod off (although I did a number of times). Over all... it was pretty boring. Something I would rather watch while sitting on my couch on a lazy evening. I definitely wouldn't recommend paying $8 or more dollars per person to see it at the theatre. Wait until it comes out on dvd and then rent it!!

On another note... I have been stressing about the stuff I need to get done for the Laurel Festival coming up in June. I have kind of been put in charge (partially by my own doing) of a Community Mural, Drum Jam, Praise&Worship, etc... on Wednesday, June 18th. THEN, I am organizing a Vesper Service for Saturday, June 20th. I need to find speakers and music... AHHH! I had a dream last night about it (I think it was because I was kind of panicking about it as I drifted off to sleep)... and I dreamt that I freaked out at the people in my church because I felt like I was doing everything and no one else was pitching in. When I say Freaked Out.. I mean.. SCREAMING out my frustrations! I woke up and felt better... since it didn't really happen... and then I remembered... today is our Fellowship Dinner after church.... and I am the one that has to head that up too!!!!! I started to panic and look around for food to make. If you would see my cupboards... you would know my dilemma. So... I've scrounged some things and I have to go work on that right now. But... PLEASE keep my in prayer about getting all of this stuff organized and taken care of. On top of all of that... I have work... which I'm covering for my co-worker all week... which means 4AM... here I come! AND.. I have some festivals coming up to sell pottery... and I haven't even looked at the pottery wheel yet! I'm stressing!!! But I gotta go cook now.............


  1. Nen....take a deep breath and count to 10~~ Now, if something falls by the wayside, what is the worst that can happen?

    You will get it all done, and then some....:-)
    Have FUN!!

  2. Well...that is good to know about the movie..cuz i really wanted to see it..but now I will probably wait till i can rent it!

  3. I've never even heard of that movie, Nen. I'll be looking for it, too!

    Pottery? Did you say that you make pottery? Fantastic! That is on my list of things I want to do before I get too old to do it! LOL
