Some Thoughts....

I had 3 parties this weekend. I think I might have gained 5 pounds. Yuck!

Not a minute goes by that I don't think of my Siberian sons. I keep thinking to myself that this adoption will be final sooner rather than later.

This past Sunday I had the incredible opportunity to be a part of an ordination church service for one of my best friends, Billy Almaguer. It is so cool to watch a man grow in his ministry like Billy.

Tomorrow is our last regular large group meeting for our Student Ministry. Next week we are having a Christmas party with 6 other church student ministries from the area. I will post more on this, but please pray for us as we look to reach hundreds of students in this area.

I have never watched an episode of The Apprentice, but the new celebrity version looks awesome and I may watch it. I will be rooting for former heavy weight champ Lennox Lewis.

The Miami Dolphins are 0-13 and the New England Patriots are 13-0. How ironic that these 2 teams will be playing soon. I know it is almost impossible, but what if the Dolphins win this? I have seen stranger things happen. I really hope New England loses at least one game this year.

I am addicted to The Bigs, a game for the Wii. It is an amazing baseball game if you are into those types of games.

On my iPhone this week: Harry for the Holidays, Harry Connick; A Charlie Brown Christmas, Vince Guaraldi Trio; Our first trip to Russia video (sorry, it's not public yet!)

Is there a better rock band in the world than the Foo Fighters? They just know how to rock and you don't have to worry about obscenities.

I have come to the conclusion that McDonalds makes the best iced coffee. It's incredible. If you havent tried it yet, run out right now and order a large vanilla iced coffee and leave me a comment!

Hey, I think I'll wait till we reach Moscow, and see if the Russian version is great, too. How bout it? First round is on us.

Hard to believe a team of "professionals" can't win at least 1 game. The Dolphin fans will soon be wearing paper bags over their heads like they did in Tampa Bay years ago.

Mickey D's iced coffee... no thanks. Someone at work told me the same thing - that it was the bomb, so I had them pick me up one. I thought it was pretty awful, kind of like a wet, dirty ashtray.

Now, a Frappucino, or even a Coolatta (the Dunkin Donuts version)... with some flavor (not just cold coffee) THAT I can do. But then again, I'm one of those people that puts so much sugar and milk in coffee that I don't think it can be classified as coffee any more.

HOWEVER, every so often I get a good cup - and by my standards, that means the coffee TASTES like the beans SMELL. Now THAT's good coffee. Any suggestions?

I had a McDonalds Iced Coffee this summer. It was terrible. Maybe there was just a bad barista?

I'll try them again ;o)
