"I'm a material girl, living in a material world"
My mom has worked at the same office for like 15 years and everybody knows everybody...It's like a big family. I have worked there too off and on during breaks or on weekends. The owner is a really old, sweet guy. The problem? He is an ultra-conservative Catholic. Not that there is anything wrong with that, I was raised in the same environment.
anyways, I was working today and he came and started talking to me. He asked how school was, "it's going really great". He asked me what my major was "History" I replied. Then he said, "but not the history they teach at the University right? It's full of damn liberals. It's a good subject to learn. I know you won't forget our roots and what this country was founded on. What's your plans for after school, teaching?" I said "something like that."
I can't tell my moms boss that I am also getting a degree in Religion, and I want to be a minister! He still thinks I'm a good Catholic girl.
I told the truth, I am majoring in History. I just didn't tell the WHOLE truth...That's not bad is it?

Actually I have 4 different bibles. I hate and love each of them differently. There are tons and tons of different translations of the bible and when you go to the bookstore to buy one you have to be careful. So how do you know if you have a "good" bible? How do you know if the bible has a good translation? Or do you even care about the translation? These are questions for yall over the weekend. I know the answers to them, and I know how to pick a good bible from the rest based on my own "scholarly" knowledge of how bibles work, and the various translations. What bible do you use? and why?
Just thought I would through those questions at the world, I will post my opinion on Sunday or Monday. Hope everyone has a good weekend.

Jihad by pepper
"A woman contacted UNM police to report that someone poured a large amount of pepper on her vehicles hood, causing damage to the engine and other mechanical items, a police report stated.
She told police she took her car to a mechanic who found pepper in the engine, the vents, and the entire interior compartment. The woman said five pounds of pepper were removed from her car, according to the report. She didn't have the monetary damage amount.
The report stated the woman did not know who could have committed the act, but would keep police advised.
The next day she received a suspicious letter containing biblical quotes and the dictionary definition of "selfish."
She told police she did not know if the letter was connected to the pepper in her vehicle."

Tao Te Ching Chapter 5
They exist without moralizing.
They act regardless of our wishes
within the ebb and flow
of every pregnant moment.
The space between yin and yang
is like a bellows--
empty, yet infinitely full.
The more it yields,
the more it fills.
than the silent balance
between yin and yang.

The Shitty Blogs Club
However, I was determined to join, I just had to. All the cool bloggers are in it and I wanted to be cool to. Plus, the site was started by a[e] http://www.anti-everything.us/weblog/ who is lurking here somewhere on campus. So after long hours of trying to figure out computer crap that I could care less about, I was able to get a button, in the right place and thus became a member of the Shitty Blogs Club.
I would like to thank G-d, my mom, Harold and all my blogger roll models, David, Liz, because I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for yall.

Here is the infamous San Diego Zoo duck:
Here is a duck balloon taken at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta:
Here are the "Outcast" ducks at UNM. These three swim at the other end of the pond, and don't socialize with the other ducks.
Here are some non-outcast ducks at UNM
So everyone say hi to Harold...my newest duck friend, and make him feel welcome. He is a little shy at the moment. But if you click on him he might like you :-)
Yeah, I better go take a shower or I'll miss my class :-/

In elementary school we used to draw "squiggles" Our teacher would give us a squiggly line and we where to make something out of it and then write a story about it. I wish it where that easy now-a-days.....
Well, maybe it could. Maybe I will make a squiggle and then divine inspiration will hit.
Unless anyone has better ideas. What do yall want to hear or know about?

My Greek Civilization class has relatively nothing to do whatsoever with Greek Civ. We have two textbooks for the class: The Iliad and the Odyssey. It is more like Greek Civ. according to Homer, Brad Pitt, and my diva teacher Cyreno, her shoes, beer, her hair, sex etc. I’m not complaining to much because lets face it….it’s an easy A. Besides, those who know me would say I am a diva too. However, I am not learning anything I didn’t already know and it has nothing to do with the Greek Civilization! I mean, Homeric Greek yes, but there is more to Greece than Homer and I am pretty bummed that I am not going to get to learn anything about it. Plus, divas don’t get along with other divas (or at least not this one).
Oh, did I mention that I have read the Iliad and Odyssey so many times that I could send Athena running for her money? Seriously.
Ok, I’m sorry this has become Jen’s personal bitch fest, but I really don’t know what to write about. Besides, I’m grumpy today. Actually, I have progressively been getting grumpier and grumpier since last Thursday, or was it Wednesday? I can’t even keep track of the days anymore. Anywho, it started raining one night. The next day it was still raining. That’s fine, NM needs the rain, but my boots are kinda old and yeah, my foot got completely soaked walking to class. Then, the next day…no rain! Woohoo!
But there was snow. And then the next day, snow. Today, it’s just cold and cloudy. I don’t handle the cold to well, but no sun for almost 5 days straight REALLY GETS ME GRUMPY.
I NEED SUN!
I’m ok, I swear. Maybe I will feel better when my blog gets beautified. Hopefully Chaz can do it this weekend. Yo Chaz, if your reading this, please, please, please make my blog pretty! It’s not bad, but it is so boring, and then my posts are boring so it’s just really boring and no one ever posts besides a few beloveds and yeah…(David I know I still owe you an email about Mormons and sacrament).
Oh Joy! It has started to snow…and guess what?! I am wearing open toed shoes. Shit, this sucks. At least my shoes are cool, they are red with white polka-dots and about a 2 inch heal.
So, what to you all want me to write about? I can be a really good writer if I actually set my mind to it. The problem is, I don’t know what yall want to hear. Give me some topics, suggestions anything…
I think I am going to go to the Frontier and sulk about the snow for a while.
