Costello: Who is?
Abbott: Yes. Sometimes his wife comes down and collects it.
Costello: Who's wife?
Abbott: Yes.
Costello: All I'm tryin' to find out is what's the guy's name on first base.
Abbott: Oh, no - wait a minute, don't switch 'em around. What is on second base.
Costello: I'm not askin' you who's on second.
Abbott: Who is on first.
Costello: I don't know.
Abbott: He's on third - now we're not talkin' 'bout him.
Costello: Now, how did I get on third base?
Abbott: You mentioned his name!
Costello: If I mentioned the third baseman's name, who did I say is playing third?
Abbott: No - Who's playing first.
Costello: Never mind first - I wanna know what's the guy's name on third.
Abbott: No - What's on second.
Costello: I'm not askin' you who's on second.
Abbott: Who's on first.
Costello: I don't know.
Abbott: He's on third.
Costello: Aaah! Would you please stay on third base and don't go off it?
Abbott: What was it you wanted?
Costello: Now who's playin' third base?
Abbott: Now why do you insist on putting Who on third base?
Costello: Why? Who am I putting over there?
Abbott: Yes. But we don't want him there.
Costello: What's the guy's name on third base?

Abbott & Costello: THIRD BASE!
Costello: You got a catcher?
Abbott: Oh, absolutely.
Costello: The catcher's name.
Abbott: Today.
Costello: Today. And Tomorrow's pitching.
Abbott: Now you've got it.
Costello: All we've got is a couple of days on the team.
Abbott: Well, I can't help that.
Costello: Well, I'm a catcher too.
Abbott: I know that.
Costello: Now suppose that I'm catching, Tomorrow's pitching on my team and their heavy hitter gets up.
Abbott: Yes.
Costello: Tomorrow throws the ball. The batter bunts the ball. When he bunts the ball, me being a good catcher, I wanna throw the guy
out at first base. So I pick up the ball and throw it to who?
Abbott: Now that's the first thing you've said right.
Costello: I don't even know what I'm talkin' about!
Abbott: Well, that's all you have to do.
Costello: Is to throw the ball to first base.
Abbott: Yes.
Costello: Now who's got it?
Abbott: Naturally!
Costello: If I throw the ball to first base, somebody's gotta catch it. Now who caught it?

Costello: Naturally.
Abbott: That's right. There we go.
Costello: So I pick up the ball and I throw it to Naturally.
Abbott: You don't!
Costello: I throw it to who?
Abbott: Naturally.
Costello: THAT'S WHAT I'M SAYING!
Abbott: You're not saying it that way.
Costello: I said I throw the ball to Naturally.
Abbott: You don't - you throw the ball to Who?
Costello: Naturally!
Abbott: Well, say that!
Costello: THAT'S WHAT I'M SAYING! I throw the ball to who?
Abbott: Naturally.
Costello: Ask me.
Abbott: You throw the ball to Who?
Costello: Naturally.
Abbott: That's it.
Costello: SAME AS YOU!! I throw the ball to first base and who gets it?
Abbott: Naturally!
Costello: Who has it?
Abbott: Naturally!
Costello: HE BETTER HAVE IT! I throw the ball to first base. Whoever it is grabs the ball, so the guy runs to second. Who picks up the ball and throws it to What, What throws it to I Don't Know, I Don't Know throws it back to Tomorrow - triple play.
Abbott: Yes.
Costello: Another guy gets up - it's a long fly ball to Because. Why? I don't know. He's on third and I don't give a darn!
Abbott: What was that?
Costello: I said I don't give a darn!
Abbott: Oh, that's our shortstop.

22nd January 2007

11:44pm: I learned a great deal in 2006. The year started out rocky but ended up better than I could have ever imagined. I was reluctant at first to come to Liberty. Now I am able to see that God moved me here for a reason.
I have much better relationships with my whole family. I have spent so much time with my mom just hanging out or running errands and talking. I get along with my youngest brother most of the time and I talk to Andy about once a week. He'll be home tomorrow I think. Dad and I carpooled last semester and we get coffee together sometimes. We have family dinner at the table most days. We went to all the home football games.
School itself is great. When I am on campus, I feel completely at home. Granted, I live 20 minutes away, making this seem like a silly statement. I felt such peace just walking into convo this morning. My grades have tremendously improved. The people here are quite friendly and the professors really care about you.
I am keeping in touch with a few old friends and even getting caught up with others. i have a pen pal. That whole thing is kinda weird because I don't really know him and he's in the Navy so sometimes he doesn't have an address. Besides, how many people have pen pals these days? I'm sad to see some friendships fading despite the efforts, but I guess that comes with growing up and moving away.
I am learning a lot in all of my classes. My religion and philosophy classes are a big help with staying on track and keep focused on God. I love the fact that we have convo three times a week as well. Many people don't appreciate this amazing chance to worship as a student body, one that doesn't exist most places. I realize now how rare that is and am grateful to have experienced another side of college so I have a better understanding of how great an opportuniity I have been given.
I decided it would be neat to keep track of all the books I read this year. I write them down in my planner when I finish them.
I look forward to the rest of 2007 and all the things God will bring my way.

5th September 2006

1:37pm: long overdue update
New state, new home, new school, new people, new life?

People always hold the door open here. The library is smaller. Dress code requirements=everyone comes to class looking nice, and with a lot less skin showing. It's 30 minute walk from one end of campus to the other. The library is smaller than any I've ever seen. and you can eat/drink in there (what's that about?). Couches in the library are good for naps between classes or curling up to read a book. after the first year, there's a community service requirement. We have convo 3 times weekly. There's always lots of bible verses and prayers. all the professors I've met are friendly and it feels like they really care about you. oh yeah, you're not allowed in the dorm building of the opposite sex. we don't have 3 day weekends either.

yet people are still the same everywhere. people still cut you off when driving around campus. you hear people talking trash about each other, and some other stuff that's slipped my mind at this point. I imagine there's drama in the dorms too.
but to be fair, I haven't really met anyone yet.
the people I do 'know' are people I never really got to know in the past and as a result there's just the recognition of a name and a face.
even though I didn't feel the need to have someone with all the time at UNCG, I think the security was there because I knew there WAS someone if I needed them.

honestly all this focus on God is good for me. when I'm doing that, I'm usually feeling much better than the rest of the time. it still feels rough, but I can't imagine how it might be if I was somewhere else.

that's all I feel like writing right now.

10th June 2006

9:09pm: random memory
I remember this time in English class senior year...

the guys were trying to answer the question "what do women want?"

and then the girls were supposed to respond (I think)

I raise my hand, "What if you don't know what you want?"

most of the class looks at me like I'm crazy

"...because um some people don't"


I still don't get why they looked at me like I was crazy.

More than a year later and I still don't know.

14th February 2006

8:34pm: Who I want to be
I would like:

to be honest
to be kind
but not get walked all over
to be friendly
to be loving
to be forgiving
one who studies hard and gets good grades
to be good at my job (grocery store or whatever it may be)
to not wonder what might have been
to not curse (as much anyway)
to tell people when something bothers me
to have an opinion
to not talk about anyone negatively behind their back
to smile and make others smile
to be organized
to be a positive influence
to be a better friend (like learning how to be there for people)
to make my own (not dependant on anyone else's) relationships with people
to be healthy
to not drink or smoke

I have a long way to go, and it's not going to be easy, but I really think this is what needs to be done.
Okay, I may never get everything on this list, but i'm definitely going to try.

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In October I gave jeanbean1126 a Dutch Oven (-10 points). Last Saturday I saved a busload of nuns in Angola (326 points). Last Friday I gave meredito a life-saving blood transfusion (50 points). In August I pushed helloyesterday in the mud (-17 points). In January I punched geniusleveltwo in the arm (-10 points).

Overall, I've been nice (339 points). For Christmas I deserve a toy train!

Sincerely,

How You Are In Love

You take a while to fall in love with someone. Trust takes time.

You give and take equally in relationships.

You tend to get very attached when you're with someone. You want to see your love all the time.

You love your partner unconditionally and don't try to make them change.

You stay in love for a long time, even if you aren't loved back. When you fall, you fall hard.
