I tried out the fifteen shot clip that my Grandpa Tom gave us for the 9mm. They were illegal for a long time (illegal to produce, if you already owned one, that was ok) and it worked great.
This evening, three of our neighbors dogs got out. The own a kennel, and sell English Labs, which go for thousands of dollars each, so they are out driving up and down the road trying to catch them as I type this. I think they ended up in my Aunt and Uncles new addition, which didn't make my Aunt and Uncle very happy, as the dogs had compiled quite a bit of mud by the time they go there. Speaking of their addition, it's huge! I just saw it with all the lights on for the first time last night as I was coming back from watching I Am Legend with Josh and Stephen. It looks like a tower or something sitting on our hill.
Speaking of I Am Legend, it was very good! And probably the scariest movie I've ever seen. It was very thought provoking though, posing a lot of questions like When is a human still a human? So I was glad I stayed in Corning after church to watch it. Before we left the Cornfields, where we had house church, I watched part of Star-Dust. I thought it was pretty stupid at first, but then, one of the characters posed the question: "Why should you fight to be accepted by people you don't really even want to be like?" And from that moment on, I began to relate to the main character in the movie like I don't believe I have ever related to one before. Take away the fantasy setting and the first forty five minutes at least could have practically been a description of my life!
I guess that's about it... I have my orientation at Mansfield University this Friday and start classes Monday.
Church is still in a general state of chaos and discombobulation. I feel like in the last nine months I've lived through the 15th century reformation in a petri-dish; this faction going this way; another forming here; constants changing, revolutions against revolutions. I've found out a lot of things that I never before dreamed were expendable... like relationships.
Why should you fight to be accepted by people you don't really want to be like?
