6 Random Things About Me

Tagged by sarah_mae13 on MySpace...

1.) I noticed this week that I stick out my tongue when I mow the lawn.  I have no idea why.

2.) I had surgery for an esophagial stricture and twisted intestines when I was a baby.  I later had surgeries for abdominal adhesions in 1989 and 1997.

3.) I have been a lifelong member of the Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod, my dad is a pastor at Holy Cross Lutheran Church.

4.) I started fencing at Ball State University when I was a freshman in Fall 1995.  Ridgewood High School offered a Fencing/Golf class (don't ask me how they got that combination!) which I was interested in, but we moved before I could take advantage of it.

5.) I got my Master of Library Science at the IU School of Library and Information Science at IUPUI in Indianapolis.  While there, I worked at the archives, the main university library, and the art library.  I also volunteered at the local public library for a couple months.  I did some studies in the medical and law libraries, so I got a pretty good range of library experiences down there.

6.) I shriek like a little girl when I am intently playing video games and something unexpected happens!

*ROFL*  I was looking at a few "friends of friends" journals and saw that voicetrack had posted this on 10/30:
On this day in 1938, panic occurred across the U.S. after listeners tuning in late to the radio play "War of the Worlds" thought the drama was an actual newscast and that the U.S. had been invaded by Martians. The Martians were also confused. They thought they would be greeted as liberators.

Glad to meet you

Peace of the Lord be with you.


Cool to meet another Lutheran fencer. Though I haven't been fencing as long as you.

We have a school and have started a fencing class on the elementary school's campus.

How many other LCMS lutheran fencers have you come across?

Not many. I'm sure they're out there, but we don't talk about church membership when we're on the strip! :)

Synod

According to dictionary.com:
A council or an assembly of church officials or churches; an ecclesiastical council.

Basically, it's a way of saying we don't have a pope or one person acting as ultimate authority. Decisions are made in council, hopefully by building consensus. It's named that way to reflect how the denomination was set up, much like how a town can officially be a "village" or a state can be a "commonwealth." Hope that makes sense, welcome to the flist! :)

I always figured stuff like that is exactly WHY aliens haven't visited us (publicly, anyways). They pick up our broadcasts of stuff like "Independance Day" and think "We can't go there! They'll kill us and steal our stuff!"

Earth- the stereotypical ghetto of the galaxy.

This is why I have NEVER finished a Silent Hill game. Something scares the bejibble out of me, I scream like a woman, then get all embarrassed at myself and stop playing.
