Weird Events

Hah, that seems to be all I talk about. Just weird stuff that happens. Anyways, I woke up at 4 in the morning today, and heard strange noises, like people dropping sutff or hitting the wall or something. So anyways, it was kinda weird, cuz I was really awake, and wasn’t sure what was going on. Thought maybe it was burglars or something. I got this bat thing from under my bed and just kinda lied there for awhile. =P It was nothing (I don’t think), but I started praying for people just outta the blue, just in case of something. Wasn’t sure what it was, but if something happened at around 4:07am today, let me know, hah.

Chet Atkins SST

Lol, most of you who read this have no idea to what that title in green letters means. =P It’s a guitar! hehe, big surprise right? Well I was at guitar center today picking up some Hot Rods (drum sticks) for the youth dept. and I stopped into the acoustic guitar room for abit. Now this Chet Atkins technically isn’t an acoustic guitar…but sorta is. It’s a hollow-body, meaning that the inside is hollow (erm…duh). It has no sound hole, and holes up against feedback very well. Two very good rythm guitarist play these, and man, it’s a nice guitar! (oh, the two guitarist who play them are David Crowder, and Dave Matthews, heh, each respectively hold there own in the music worlds). =P
Anyways, the Chet that I saw was on sale for 899$ because it was used. Wow, it was nice, a nice sunburst finish, that I’ve only seen on a few Chets (David Crowder has one with a sunburst finish). It had a few small dings in it, but man, it was still nice. The strings stunk on it though, very old. I was talking to the clerk and he said that it would be released to sell in 5 days (in used equipment, they hold on to it for 30 days for police check). I could put it on layaway, but it would be 250$ down, and I would have 30 days. Hrm….could be a challenge….hehe, wonder if I should do it, haha.

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday! Big Events at FLCC Auto Show! (well church, hehehe)

Service went well today. We did a lot of songs though, hah, and I had to practice them all right before service during worship practice (I knew all of the, but not sure if I played all of them before). Pastor Kevin had a very good message today on being Obediant to God. I felt like he was going to do a Altar call, but was sorta surprised that he didn’t (he did ask for some hands for people that struggled with being obediant to Him). After service I had a bunch of papers I had to print up, but the computers were all acting funny, hah. Pastor Sandra had me print and deliver some papers for her while she was away, so I needed to get them out before the meeting next week. Found out the HS class had no teacher today, but I couldn’t go in and do anything since I needed to get those papers done, heh. Tim stepped in and talked about camp and hung out with them and stuff though, so it was alright.
After church we went over to Lisa Chui’s house. Hung out, played ping pong (and some CRAZY round robin style ping pong) ate pizza, and just hung out pretty much, hah. Oh and played mah-jongg. Grrr, man, I was so dumb playing mah-jongg today!! I falsely declared, not only once, but TWICE!!! aiya, so horrible.

At 5:30 at church we had a potluck dinner thing as a goodbye party for Pastor Valerie. Pastor Val was our children’s pastor at our church for about 4 years now, been awhile. It was a good gathering with fun and food, and friends. 3 Fs, whooo. hehe. A few of the kids were playing around with me left and right. Pastor Kevin has the cutest kids though, they go in the order of Matthew, Nicholas, Andrew, and Cameron. Cute kids, hehe. Nick and Sara Chin were messing around with me when I was sitting there and eating. =P

I felt bad today as I was around the 280/380 intersection. It was then that I realized how easy it was for me to find parking at church, when it took Lisa Lau like 10 times around the block before she gave up and just parked in the church parking lot. I remembered that I prayed for parking right as I was in the park coming over to Fulton, but I never gave God thanks for the space once I had it. Blah, thanked Him there for it though. =) God is good, through even the little things like praying for parking spaces.

Lalala, Half Weekend Update

Well Pat and Erik came over late on Thursday night, erm, wait, I just read that I posted about that already….ok. Well the beach was cool, but REALLY cold, haha. We met at Janet’s place and then headed out to Baker Beach over by 25th Avenue. We played some Boggle out there on the beach and hung out only for about a half hour until some of us had to get to church for Prayer and Worship Practice. Lisa’s car went out to eat (forgot where) before worship. Friday’s service went well. Janet led games by doing that game “Bitty Bitty Bop” hahaha. It was slow at first, until everyone understood it and got into it. Justin spoke tonite and I think it went really well. He spoke about how we serve an Inconvienant God, ie, we only make time for God, under our conditions, and how it seems inconvienant for us to make time for Him. During prayer, I felt the urge to say something in a matter of encouragement, but also so that God would do a work in people, but Justin went up and said something else, so I didn’t get a chance to. I hope that even though I felt like I was supposed to say something, but didn’t, that God wasn’t mad at me for not saying it or something. Just as I felt like God was telling me to say it, Justin went up, so I decided to leave it be, since he sort of went off in a different direction of praying. *shrug* I dunno.
Afterwards a few of us (well just Lisa’s car load and mine) went off to Crepevine over in Sunset. It was a fun time to just hang out, and Mike Misland also came out with us to eat. During eating, Justin noticed someone else in the restaurant and it was some guy named Jaime (I think) that was on the New Orleans edition of The Real World on MTV. I (and most others of us) had no idea who he was, since we don’t have cable, but Lisa Chui went crazy, and screamed, and caused a lot of attention in the restaurant. It was pretty funny. We talked to him for like a minute, and then just let him be. Lisa Lau left to drop off Janet, and later she called me because of a strange situation that Janet was in, which I won’t really go into, but we prayed for her as we sat there.

Today a bunch of us guys had a get together and went out to watch “The Fast and the Furious”. It was a pretty interesting movie, and I think most of the people were cast pretty well, but it could have used a few more race scenes, and maybe a lil less plot. I was going in expecting a really fun, action packed, race movie, and really just wanted to go in and be entertained, but it was a lot of plot in a small movie like that. *shrug* Afterwards, we all went to my house and then dropped Justin off and the rest of us (Joe, Gordo, Eric and I) went to Mel’s Drive-In to eat, then went home.

I’m currently watching the Simpson’s Movie Marathon =P It’s pretty cool. The Simpsons is a great show, and I’m always surprised to hear how the people do so many of the voices of different characters. Check sometime to check out who does what voices (just type Simpsons into the search part).

That’s about it for now. I have worship practice early tommorrow, and I forgot my shoes again! oh no, oh well….I’ll just have to keep remembering to bring them.
