afternoon thunderstorms

Posted in Uncategorized by Jules on 29 May 2007

i don’t have much to write about them. i just like them. i tried writing a whole montage about my childhood and such, including some heartwarming story about rainstorms. but really…i just like them. they make me laugh, no explanation why. the same way roller coasters do, but for different reasons i’m sure.
i have decided to not take any classes this summer and so i am looking forward to a calm, relaxing summer of afternoon thunderstorms…or if it’s not calm and relaxing…maybe i’ll have a summer like in the burbs, full of adventure…spying on neighbors & suspecting them of murder. i mean isn’t that how all those movies start? with someone planning on having a great “relaxing time” like beatlejuice or funny farm. man, how completely awesome would that summer be; a mixture of the burbs, beatlejuice & funny farm.
other random thought: perhaps people walk around with their iPod permanently connected to their head because they wish…like so many, that their life could come with a soundtrack. i mean, it’s pretty close you gotta admit.

    Julie- I got to spend time with your bro last night at Jeff and Krista’s church, and your lovely sister-in-law and beyond adorable niece (seriously– have you SEEN a cuter child?? and I have a niece and nephew, so that says a lot that she is cuter than them).

    Anyway- I’d always seen your brother (and you of course but I interacted with you) growing up at church and didn’t really know he was so great. I was astounded at the wisdom and insight he and Lindsay candidly shared last night. It was amazing and I just wanted to pass it along….keep enjoying those thunderstorms. 😉

    leisel, i’m so glad that you got to meet them!!
    sean and i just wish that we lived closer to them…or they to us.
    i am simply constantly blessed by their passion & thirst for life and truth, it’s contagious.
    & yes, gwen is fabulous.

    If i were you I’d be thinking the same thing…actually…after last week I’d like to live closer to them too.;-) Especially with how cute Gwen is and how chill they are with her!I’m jealous. Plus– it was just an unusual experience noting your bros similarities to you. You have the same voice inflections and sense of humor!fantastic…but people probably tell you that all the time.;-)
