Because when I arrive, I, I bring the fire, make you come alive, I can take you higher...

I don't condone roughly half the lyrics of that song.  But, let's face it, the other half is just awesome.

Prom was Saturday night, into Sunday morning.  It was lots and lots of fun.  We went to Centro for dinner, and we rode in Michael's dad's awesome Hummer.  I am fairly certain that the Hummer was actually a Transformer.  Dinner was lovely, and the Hummer was very loud and awesome and everyone wanted to be our friend while we were riding it.  The subs in that baby were pretty boss.  So, we went from dinner to the Grand March, did our thing there, and then headed over to the actual prom.  The dance wasn't as good as last year, but post prom was way more fun.  The music at the dance was lame and boring.  It was all either weird rap or country songs.  There were more slow songs this year, which was nice.  Not that there were a lot, but last year there were probably only three songs that you could even slow dance to.  So yes, that was kind of nice.  Post prom was at Perfect Games in Ames, which is a bowling alley/arcade place.  That was lots of fun, because we got a free $20 game card.  I was pretty addicted to winning those tickets.  I was like a little kid in Chuck E. Cheese.  I won some tickets, and I also pwned at Laser Tag. *coughnotreallycough*  Then, after post prom, we went over to Jessica's house for post post prom.  We watched (sort of) Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure and ate a delicious breakfast prepared by Mrs. Wollaston.  Then we all went to church and half-slept through the sermon and then we went our separate ways.  I took a six-hour nap.  Mostly everyone else napped, too.  It was good stuff.  Pictures of stuff will come :)

I'm church shopping.  I have visited Immersion at Lutheran Church of Hope several times, and I'm eventually going to visit the regular service at LCoH, and I'll also check out Walnut Creek Community Church.  Immersion has been pretty cool so far, but I'm still kind of trying to figure out if it's something I really want to go to consistently.  I have kind of gotten the impression that the few people that are there are not really going to be easy to become friends with, or that they wouldn't be the type of people I'd really want to form lasting friendships with anyway.  But I am totally aware that I'm quite possibly being overly critical, and I don't want to assume things about people or make judgments on their character before I have even really been around them, and I don't want to lump them all together and assume that they're all shallow when that is really only the case with a few.  So, anyway, long story short, I'm still not sure on the whole Immersion thing.  But it has been fun to go to, and I'll keep going for a while and checking it out.

I'm tired and this blog is ready to be done for now.  Goodnight.
