People I Like

This week I've been very happy to be able to spend time with a lot of people I like.

Sunday I had the huge honor to meet the most handsome boy in the world, Mr. Ben Gatewood. :) Seeing him, Adrienne, and Whit filled my heart with so much love and joy. They are each strong and faithful people that combine to make an amazing family that I know will be such a great force of good in our world.

Then last night I went to see a movie with my long time friend Blake, with whom I have a "love/hate relationship". :) (his words, not mine) We went to see "One Night with the King," a movie somewhat loosely based on the story of Esther in the Bible. I was extremely disappointed, though it was my own fault for expecting anything from it. Try to imagine an ancient, near eastern theological story somehow morphed into something between a Disney movie and a Jane Austen novel. Pretty terrible, but whatever. :) We went to the dollar theater on half price night, so it only cost me 50 cents and two hours of my life. ;)

Then today I got to spend a lovely afternoon with my dear friend Misty. We happened upon a "corral of buffalo", and procured photographic evidence.

Me with the "bling bling" buffalo... and this is my "bling bling" pose... I'm really not very ghetto. :)

Best day off in a long time.

Also, I think I want to change my buffalo's name from Stormy to Bono, since I've decided it has a Beautiful Day kind of look about him.

How could anyone possibly hate Blake? ;-)

For the record, I don't hate Blake, but if I did, it'd probably be because he's from Missouri. :)

Those buffaloes are hilarious! Who knew that OKC was the home of such artistic excellence?
