Finally!

So, remember a long time ago when I said I would post my Dinner Dance pics as soon as I got a website? Well, I did that about two weeks ago but haven't had time to post yet. So, now I'm posting!!! *Yay for me* So, here's the pics! Enjoy.


Me and one of my youth group buddies


Lorena, Constancia, Magdalena and I all having a good time


That's Maurice's brother


And that's Shrimplofter!


The hubby and I (er, ex-hubby, I guess :P)


JimBeth and I share a touching moment


With the fam!

Well, now that THAT'S finally done... all I have to do is get the pics from forking the Chronic Liar's door! Oh and I suppose I could post some pics of us trying on his Army duds, too... that was fun!
Unfortunately, I am very busy this summer (mostly because of work) so my posts will be few and far between. Sorry for the inconvenience, but Judit already explained the whole situation, so I won't go into it.
Anyway, word of the day: Weezer... because I'm wearing my Weezer shirt and I *heart* that band!!!

Fun with Fones

Hehe, like the alliteration there? Okay, lame. So Magdalena has recently gotten a camera phone, enjoy.

These were all taken on various trips to Perkins.

Howdy pardner.


Well ya know, when the back of your ear itches, scratch it!


Strange drinks are not just a CC thing! (But no one drank this one!) Drink a drink a drink to Lydia Pink a Pink a Pink...


Magdalena and her sandwich, it's a beautiful thing!


Oh! I broke a nail!


Lorena, looking her best!


Why are you still taking pictures of me?


She wasn't dress code. I'd make such a good RA!


No privacy! No privacy anywhere!


The time has come to pay, does Magdalena have enough moneies? Yes she does!

More different Book Meme...

Okay, so I guess it's my turn to post for the Book Meme-- because obviously Constancia is having problems doing so! (Grr!) No, really I don't mind. I actually kinda wanted to do this... that was until I realized that I haven't read too many books lately, but whatever. I will do my best!!! So, here goes:

Total number of books I own:
I would have to agree with Judit... WAY too many!!! Well, not too many, just too many to count :D

Last book I bought:
well, I would like to say that it was The Screwtape Letters, but I can't because Grant got the last copy of it from the regular book store and the Christian book store doesn't have any copies in right now either! (I really want to read that book!) So, I think the last book I bought was... huh, it's been a long time since I've bought a book for myself... I get a lot of them as gifts! I think it must have been Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

Last book I read:
yeah, it takes me forever to finish a book because I always get side-tracked! But I did finish MacBeth in English class! Though, I'm not entirely sure that counts as a book, seeing as it's a play. So I guess the last book I finished was Flowers for Algernon, which was also for English, but I really liked it! Oh and I am currently in the middle of Return Of The King.

Five books that have meant a lot to me:
1) The Five People You Meet In Heaven I read this for a religion assignment and man was it good!!! (I read a lot because of assignments) It's not necessarily Catholic, but it isn't necessarily NOT Catholic, either: mainly because no one really knows what heaven will be like. I think everyone should read this book, especially if you're scared about what will happen to you after you die. It has a way of easing the mind about that!
2) The Lord of the Rings series. You want a feel-good read, this is the place to get it! Though, really, it's so much more than just a feel good kind of trilogy. I love Tolkien. He can write so beautifully about Catholicism without revealing to his audience that he's writing about Catholicism! Not that we shouldn't know it's based on Catholic beliefs, it's just that even if someone doesn't want to read a spiritual book, it's still an excellent read. However, digging a bit deeper helps to make these books that much better.
3) The Chronicles of Narnia I must confess, I haven't quite finished this series. But I've read through book five (and 1/2 of six) and C.S. Lewis also knows where it's at-- spiritually speaking! Actually, at first he didn't. But after being challenged to write something Christian by his good friend Tolkien, he sure did change! He wrote the aformentioned Screwtape Letters as well. And, he has a way of making you feel like you're in the book; right along-side the children! I tell you, it's amazing and oh so spiritual!
4) Ella Enchanted This is a Cinderella based book. It's quite the lesson-teacher, actually! Good for the awkward, early-adolecent girl. It's about Ella's persistance and sacrifice and there are so many fun characters! I actually danced when I finished this book because I liked it so much! (Not that I'm not dancing all the time, but still... :D)
5) Each Peach Pear Plum I think this was the first book I ever memorized... or it's just the only one that I can still recite (I know, I'm a dork!) It's kinda cooky-- a mixture of Mother Goose and hidden pictures, it's extremely fun. Everyone should read it... or maybe you can just ask me to tell you the story, cuz like I said, I can still recite it! :P

And now for the FUN part! Tagging time!

Sorry to those of you who don't know me, but we are connected through the Hobbit and I was given the "okay" by her! So if you want to gripe, please address your hate mail to Judit!

Oh, and the word of the day is sulfuric acid, because it took Judit and I a really long time to figure out that is what H2SO4 is! Mmm, thats some good stuff! :S

Dormition

Hello all you out there in bloggerdom! If you are reading this, I commend you for your faithfulness. You have probablly noticed that this blog has been. . . dying. Don't worry, ¿Qué? is not dying! It's not even sick. (I'm not quite dead yet. I'm feeling much better, I think I'll go for a walk later. . .) "Then what's going on?" you may ask. "Why is no one posting?" Well, with Constancia & I home for the summer, the need to blog has diminishted. So for the summer, ¿Qué? is going into a sort of, hibernation. Not to say there won't be post. There will, but it won't be at the rate that you're used to. I hope you can manage the summer without hearing about our crazy-go-nuts lives. As some consolation, I suggest you check out some of the blogs on our sidebar. They're there for your enjoyment. (That goes for the links, too.) So God bless you & your family & good summer! Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom, pray for us!
