For Rachel Lee Fix.

Dear Rach,

This blog is for you. I know we've been kind of our of touch lately but things are on the up with that lovely email you just wrote me. Hereis the blog I've promised to you. A few things first. I'm going to write exactly how i would talk to you and that means that i'm not going to fix my spelling mistakes or grammar, even though i just fixed 2 words in that last sentance already.

hi laych.
yesturday i was on my friends facebook and he had this photo of a friend of his doing some sort of race outside in the snow and i poasted a comment that said "if i could take a photo of my worst nightmare, this would be it" and i knew you'd aprpeciate that. Also i left you a wall comment and diana responded to it i think...diana or sara.

Me and mollie went for a walk the other night and i told her all about river bus and ofta tacos. She laughed hysterically for about 30 sefconds. i just got a memory of us and air doing the can can on main street with street kids in the rain in front of touristy source cafe. funny hey! oh man.

remember that one time we all got dolled up and were waiting for friends and they never came so we hung out in the v-house and the power went off and there was a bat in the house so we got musa to kill it? speaking of musa, he facebooks me a lot and you should see his english. its incredible! he needed school fees so good ole papa dukes king gave him them. my dad seirously loves musa, its so cute.

right now i'm sitting at jacylns house. or in rather. she lives in downtown edmonton and is the nanny for the son of the man who used to own the oilers. they are super nice with this crazy house where the kitchen is upstairs and the bedrooms are all on the main floor. its so cool. its right across from the crackercats stadium where the edmontons baseball team lives. but i dont really care beacsue no one really care about baseball in canada. its about the hockey. one time, when i was flying to africa, i was sitting beside this man and he had a giant stanley cup ring and he was so nice because i was crying and the helped me get my bags at the airport in toronto and he offered to buy me lunch and he had a corvette and a half wolf dog and a wife and 2 kids and was a nice old grampa man. he played for the rangers, montreal, and the oilers and i felt that i was really cool in that moment.

i'm going to name my dog juma. do you want to guyess why? want to kjnow the real reason why my no shopping rule starts next saturday? its a secret so dont tell anyone. its beause jaclyn works at the gap and i can get 50% off with her discount so i'mg oing to get a pair of jeans and a really cute purse and then my craving will be satisfied and i'll be set for the year. HA. i'm not THAT selfless.

last night was the most spectacular storm i've seen this side of the nile. for real. it was like an africa storm where the whole sky is like the daytime and the rain pours so hard that you are soaked when your banging on the gate for 2 minutes for the escari to let you in but he cant hear and you want to climb the fence but the fisheries man tells you he is going to shoot you if you do that.and you cant see 3 feet in front of you and the thunder cracks your body in half. i thought of africa. and it felt good.

isnt it weird how bernie mac died? i wrote Ellen and told her about ellen's room and about katie davis, mary pat davis's daughter. Did you know that i had cut up some pineapple for you in the fridge? i love katie. so i told ellen about this wonder child who is 19 and the ma to 10. nuts.

i start school soon and i'm so nervous but i feel really good about it at the same time. I'm excited to bring such cool africa stuff to make my room feel like i'm at home and i'm really nervous to meet my hosuemates but i feel really lucky that i found a hosue of christian girls and we're going to have tons of fun i think.

ava is hilarious. you would just die. carter is probably the cuteste white baby ever and he has these giant chubby legs and i always tell him are just like his moms. my sister loves that espeically because she weighs 92 opiunds soaking wet. dont you loe that phrase? what does soaking wet have to do with weight.....wait a sec. i get it now. never mind.

you need to get air to email me. michelle emailed me. shes in congo with raoulie bear and deborah and they are having a great time. i love them. jaclyns cell phone just rang and its a country song by kenny chesney and i have nothing against kenny or ocuntry or cell phone or ring tones but i HATE song ring tones. i dont know why. also micehlelt odle me that the rumor around jinja is that bethany is coming back at christmas which is kind hilarious becasue how would anyone get that info? also. today in church i was reading old dc jinja bulletins and my notes were SOOO funny. Pastor martin said "we're going to preach the gospel like noones business this year" the first sunday aft erhe new year. hilairous hey. i love that guy. bethany is on the website.

ok i have to go because i want to watch tv. tlc has these awesome medical mysteries on sundays now like "i dont have a face" and "i have a tumor twice the size of my body growing out of my leg" and "i have tree branches for limbs" and I LOOOOOVE them.

rand blair told me to tell you he said hi, and that hes doing great and wants to know when him and jumi are going to go on that blind date we're always talking about.

cracked up the whole time! remember when you wrote about ar falling out of the van in your journal? i sometimes think about that and it ALWAYS makes me laugh. we need to go back to Africa together. even for just a lil visit.
i think jumi said she was going to meet michelle and raoul in congo...let me know if michelle emails you to let you know.

arielle's mom wanted to block "A shot at love with tila tequila" on MTV for her and her 21-year-old sister because she thought it was disgusting and inappropriate. can you really block shows from your 21 and 24-year old daughters?
