I killed A TOAD

I killed a toad mowing the lawn. As you guys know, we have 9000 sq of lawn to mow. And...there are weed patches here and there...well it was hiding in one of the weed patches. I ran it over with the lawn mower. It was really big so when it came out...all bloody and stuff...I thought it was a BIRD. I stopped mowing. I ran up to Cary and Sunny and they were like "...WHAT??" I WAS LIKE..."WAHHH, I killed something." The three of us went to examine the was a big TOAD. Poor nasty Toad.

One Fine Saturday Afternoon...

Jason and Ken came down to visit this weekend. We always eat at El Patio. This Sunday was not unlike the others..... Until we started talking about mixed people. Then I had to share some insight..."Zac Morris from Save by the Bell is mixed with Dutch and Indonesian!"

Jason: You are so stupid. He has blonde hair and blue eyes. He got all recessive traits...I don't think so.
Helen: He could have dyed his hair and put on blue contacts. DUH
Ken: WHATEVER, even if the website says Indonesian, we have to look up whether it's "Indonesian u know when the Dutch ppl took over Indonesia.."
Helen: Hey guys, why all the hating? (calm and collected) I saw it on
Ken: Let's look it up when we get back to ur place.
Helen: Fine, but lets call Katherine. She's mixed, surely she can tell who is mixed and who isn't. Plus she found the website.

Katherine: OF COURSE He's MIXED!

Of course, we look up to find that ZAC Morris, IS MIXED! Boo YAH.

Productive Afternoon.

God is punishing me for not liking KIDS.

The kid that I had to tutor...started to run into my wall in the dinning room after class... The first thing I thought of was "there better not be a scratch on my wall..." all the whinning..."I want to go home. What time is it?" oh I had a lot of answers for those questions...none of them nice.

Pat on the back to all you teachers out there. I wanted to slam my face into my dinning table after 1 hr with a kid.

Female Hormones in Beer

Last month, National University of Lesotho scientists released the results of a recent analysis that revealed the presence of female hormones in beer.

Men should take a concerned look at their beer consumption. The theory is that beer contains female hormones (hops contain phytoestrogens) and that by drinking enough beer, men turn into women . To test the theory, 100 men drank 8 pints of beer each within a one hour period.

It was then observed that 100% of the test subjects :

1) Argued over nothing.
2) Refused to apologize when obviously wrong
3) Gained weight.
4) Talked excessively without making sense.
5) Became overly emotional.
6) Couldn't drive.
7) Failed to think rationally
8) Had to sit down while urinating.

No further testing was considered necessary.

Response to Cary

This would be Larry's response to Carry's complaint!

"All them floods have messed up my fishing!"

Our Belief Constitutes our Living

A wise brother once told me "Our belief constitutes our living."

1 Thes. 5:16-18
Always rejoice, unceasingly pray, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Catch and Release

I have been watching "Catch and Release" EVERYDAY, once a DAY. Reminds of me the time Cary brought over "Nacho Libre" and I watched that everday (sometimes twice a day) for a week.

Good thing there is a "Love Feast" tonight at the Liaou's! Welcome visiting brothers and sisters from Houston!

I re-read my email to charles today and decided that I'm really mean to him. BUT YOU DESERVE IT CHARLES!


u nasty. u left the shoes u had on when we went offshore fishing in the back of our car with your nasty socks. last night we went Grocery shopping and sunny accidentally touched ur wet, smelly socks and i had to carry the food cause his hands stunk so much.

u r no.1 nasty is what you are.
u stink more than a ran over coon on the side of the road ?? Where did I come up with this??
next time i see you i'm going to slap you upside ur head

oh and go read my blog...and look at vanhdy's pic HAHA he's a clapper.


(Taken down per request...)

VD, I told you so! Told clap when you laugh.

Offshore Fishing

So, last weekend we plunged into the unknown by enlisting on Cary's Offshore Fishing trip. The trip going out was 1 hr offshore into no man's water. The ride there was SUPER Fun almost like a roller coaster ride. Then we stopped moving forward and just started swaying side to side. 5 min after we started swaying and drifting Charles started hanging off the side of the boat. His butt up in the air. I started feeling queezy...and Jenny didn't look too good either. Jenny sat near Charles...and I am pretty sure Charles made her puke first. Then I found myself hanging off the side gagging. The next few sentences are only for those with strong stomach. If you have a weak stomach, please skip the next few sentences. One of my friends at work told me that if you get seasick, "swallow what comes up and you'll be fine. It's an old navy trick" That is what I did. Did I puke for the entire trip. ABSOLUTELY NOT. Still I felt bad after all the gagging and seeing Jenny throw up repeatedly and ... fish guts flung off the boat... So, I did what I usually do when I feel bad...I went to sleep. As I was concentration on sleeping, I hear Vanhdy laughing AT ME. HOW CRUEL IS THAT?? He was laughing at me and Jenny because we were SEASICK along with half of the boat by this time. YOU KNOW WHAT! An hour later, he started throwing up like crazy. I mean puke out the nose and stuff. IT WAS GREAT. THAT's WHAT YOU GET VANHDY. MWHAHAHAHAHA.

As I was gagging and ... leaning off the side...I was thinking 1. "I want to jump." 2. "I want to kill Vanhdy." 3. "I really need to appreciate fishermen ... more." 4. "Damn Vanhdy stank up the bathroom with his puking for the rest of the boat" -- I had to hold off going to the bathroom for like 5 hrs. Vanhdy = Nasty

Congrats to Ben and Sunny for catching big FISH. :)

Lost and Found

Memorial Weekend

It all started Friday night, as soon as everyone got here at 11pm we hit the gym and played vball, bball, and football til 2am. After a few games of assassin, we got the only night of real sleep only cause it was raining really hard and crabbing was cancelled in the morning. Around noon on Sat. it stopped raining and we took off to go fishing at the pier. Nothing but catfish and small croakers. After a light lunch we took off to Port O'Conner to try our luck fishing there. Different place, same results. At least there was more variety in our catches. Of course, CK manages to catch the ugliest and nastiest looking fish ever (toadfish). I'll have to post the picture later, but it looks like a pile of poo. Back at the house, the girls have already started preparing for the BBQ.

BBQ was crazy, we had Ken, our grill master outside grilling, and the girls in the kitchen preparing all sorts of food. All in all we had enough food to feed all 15 of us plus around 10 of Helen's co-workers +wives + their kiddos. In fact, there was so much leftovers that we didnt have to eat out the whole weekend. The co-workers little kids are another story, I think their shrieks gave me a semi headache. Cory and Gina brought over their Alaskan huskie, Mylie. She looks just the dogs in the movie, 8 Below. I think Helen wants one now. After a short rest Jason went and picked up a bunch of dodgeballs at Walmart. I have to admit after watching the movie a few years ago, I've been itching to play. I lasted only a few rounds before my shin splints got the worst of me. I sat out and watched them finish a best of 7 game series. It came down the the wire, very exciting. Lots of OOOOOs and AHHHHHHs and yelling and screaming. By the way, how in the world is Kin so good? Why is he so good? He must have been secretly practicing at IBM in Austin with his coworkers. After dodgeball some of us went back out to fish while others stayed at home.

Sunday we woke up bright and early and headed out crabbing. Crabs were plentiful and Jing finally caught some quality fishes. Two redfishes!! too bad they were too small to keep. Duffy didnt get hurt this time and CK didnt lose any chicken necks. He did catch a large green moldly crab which no one dared to eat. Lunch consists of last night's bbq and sausages and crabs. Douglass and Kelly did the dishes afterwards and I went to sleep. By the time I woke up Helen and Kelly already finished watching a movie and everyone was almost done playing poker. Dinner we managed to finished off the bbq from yesterday, then headed out to the gym again for some vball. When we got there it started pouring again, good thing the gym is indoors. CK took a nasty fall, which didnt help out his messed up toe nail. I did give him some tylenol for it, but it turns out it was 3 years expired, heh. It's still effective though! After vball, everyone left for Htown except Vanhdy and Jenny.
Ken, Kin, Jason, Annie, Helen, Jenny, Vanhdy, Cary and I finish the night fishing at Port O'conner till 6 in the morn. Nothing but freaking catfish, pigfish and small croakers. Next up, DEEP SEA FISHING!!!! Anyone up for it?

PS> Anyone happen to find a set of Honda Keys? It has a big pink heart attached to it. It seems to be missing. Also Duffy's black Astro's hat is missing as well. It wasn't in the gym.

Save the Date

Here's the tentative save the date post card. A big thanks to Andrew for taking the picture, finding the location, and also editing it.

Wednesday, April 04, 2007


So, thanks to Homedepot's inferior customer and delivery service, we had to move our refridgerator into our house...manually. So, a few good men enlisted to do the job. They were: JASON, KEN, HARBERT, SUNNY, and CARY. The ones that showed up on time to move the fridge were...Sunny, Harbert, and Cary.

It was hard work. We had to take off the fridge doors in order to fit it through the front door. We didn't have a dolly that could support the weight of the fridge. So, we left it on a piece of cardboard and slid it to the front door from the garage. Then ramped it up to the door. THEN slid it into the kitchen. Cary got stuck in the mud on the side of the sidewalk a few times. His slippers were sacrificed. ALL IN ALL IT WAS JUST PLAIN HARD.

AFTER DOING ALL THAT... we realized that...the fridge had wheels. ALSO. That was when Jason and Ken walked in and asked "Do u guys need help?"

Anna and I in Red Square, Moscow

My cubby hole on the train back from Novgorod to Moscow

Helen waiting for the train to Novgorod from Moscow

Training Center in Ramenskoye

I'm really thankful that the Lord gave me the honor of participating in the gospel trip in Russia this January. GMR 2007 went out to 50 Russian cities to preach the gospel. My assigned city was Novgorod (only 9 hrs by train), and my sister rode a 37 hr train ride to Krugan, Siberria. Our day started at 6:00 in the morning and ended at 20:00. Sometimes we walked 6 hour days passing out tracts to the seminars, and some nights we knocked on 50-100 doors to preach the gospel. The militia came and kept tight watch over us "foreigners." I really wished that our food portion was larger... BUT praise the Lord, He taught me how to coordinate with other members in the Body, and I just felt like I've gained more of Him.

The Russian brothers and sisters were really awesome. They really took care of us. At one point, when our passports were taken up by the local militia, I remember praying about it and going to sleep thinking "The brothers will take care of it. God is with us!"

Out of the 2.5 weeks in Russia, I saw the sun twice. The second time was really significant to me because that day I woke up and I really didn't want to go out to preach the gospel in the cold. The night local team were cursed at for being foreigners and for being Christians while we were door knocking. It got really bad because Katya, a dear Russian sister, stopped translating what was shouted. We met with alcoholics...drunks. That morning I woke up, and I felt really defeated. But during our truth study, the Lord reminded me to have faith in Him. Preaching the gospel is not easy. A lot of people won't like you. They won't accept you. But we must go on with Him. Then the sun came out. He is light that shines in darkness. My team went out to a nearby market area to preach the gospel. I was able to preach the gospel to two Russians, who prayed and accepted Christ. The Lord is faithful!

If I given the opportunity to go again...I would in a heart beat.
