Books, Words, ect.

I woke up really early this morning to get to my library's huge book sale with my dad and my bro's Alex and Matthew. It was awesome. Unfortunately, the sale was already packed with people so we hurried to see what good books remained. In the end, I bought (for only 1 dollar!!!) two books: Webster's New World Thesaurus and the first book in The Bartimaeus Trilogy. By the way, has anyone read the trilogy before? It just looked pretty good but I don't really know anything about the series...
The thing that aggravated me was that I didn't look through the thesaurus until I'd already purchased it, and that's when I found out it didn't have the words: ameliorate, halcyon, gregarious, abscond, ebullient, voluminous, and a bunch of other really good ones. What kind of thesaurus doesn't have those incredible words? *groans* Oh well, I guess it's still an okay thesaurus. On the way back from the sale, I was thinking how awesome it would be to collect thesauruses. Wouldn't that be cool?
Right now I'm reading This Present Darkness by Frank Peretti: It's awesome. Totally, absolutely, completely awe-some. I'm not far enough yet to give a good report of it but if you're looking for something to read, get it!!!

Josh, from Blog of the Rejects tagged me for the five, favorite band tag. These are my faves:

1. Switchfoot (utterly awesome and amazing)
2. Tenth Avenue North (really, really good Christian music)
3. Kutlass (Awe-some. Check out there song: What Faith Can Do)
4. Hawk Nelson (cool band, :D)
5. Tie between Run Kid Run (I know, weird name but check out my playlist and you'll see their amazing song, Freedom. In fact, it's probably playing right now for you) and Matthew West.

A Freezing 5k

Well, never mind checking Sunstar's blog to see the debate. She deleted all posts and comments related to it, so yeah... :( Just remember to keep her in your prayers because she really needs to see the truth.
Something absolutely awesome happened today. It *drumroll* SNOWED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But there was one thing bad about that: at eight o'clock in the morning I was scheduled to run a 5k (3.2 miles I think) and now, I had to run it in the freezing cold. I managed to survive and finished 41st out of about 250 people although unfortunately, I failed to make it into the top rank of my age group, meaning I didn't get a medal. *shrugs* It was still fun though and I had a blast. :D
I can't wait for tomorrow! In my church, I'm an assistant small-group leader for the kindergartners and it's a lot of fun. The best part is the beginning where the kids come in and I pretty much just have the job of playing with them and making sure they all have fun. *grins* I can't wait.
Also, I'm now in a homeschool co-op called ROCK, and what's so cool about it is that the kids get to do everything. Plan awesome event, create cool websites, and pretty much just take charge of everything we do. One of the coolest things we've done so far is started up a writing and reading club where we're going to post writings, do writing contests, vote on books to read as a group, and then once we have, discuss them. :D It's awesome.

Prayer Alert

Hey Guys,

Alright, there's a girl in the blogger world who goes by the name of Sunstar and she has recently decided to deny and reject God. For the last two days debate has been raging in her blog about her announcement and many bloggers have been trying to witness to her and show her the truth. But she hasn't faltered in her choice. Right now, I'm asking all of you to please pray for her. I don't know what else to tell her, but I know even if we don't know the words to say: God does. Here's her blog: Check through the first four or five posts and their comments and you'll be able to see the debate.
