The Decision

Lent is over as you all know. Therefore, this blog would appear to be over, but I've had multiple people tell me that I should keep blogging. So I need opinions! What should I blog about? Should I continue to blog? Let me know, Comment, Facebook comment, email me, anything! But unless I get enough response or ideas, I'll quite likely just stop doing so, because figuring out to write takes time, but I love doing it, so if I still have people who want to read my writing, I will continue.

Good Friday Blog Post

Today is Good Friday!
Warning: gonna be kinda wordy and serious for small parts, buuut you'll get my commentary in the parentheses as we go, got it? good.

We mourn the crucifixion of of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ:
His humiliation at the hands of the roman guards, the crown of thorns, the purple robe, the lashings, and his crucifixion were all read out in the twelve gospel readings of last night, (tl;dr.... REALLY LONG SERVICE)
and then father brought out the icon of Christ on the cross:

Today, after lots of sleeping (and not having to wake up for school, WOOT!) we got to celebrate the Hours services, in which we reread the gospels about the crucifixion etc (a bunch) and during the last one, we get to read the beatitudes! (warning, godspell clip incoming!)
Tonight, we'll have the friday night vigil service, and then the Good Friday retreat, in which the teens stay up until REALLY early doing stuff to make the church ready for the Saturday night service. and then chant the Saturday morning service. 

Just something random, my favorite Icon in my church: 
It's the "dome" icon, but we don't have a dome, so it's flat, but it's been my fave icon since i was little.

Anyways, now, to do english homework! (just because i'm out of school doesnt mean i'm out of homework)

Good Friday Updates

I know I promised a post tonight, even without food, but it took me too long to get around to it, so I've nothing worth saying. To make up for my lack of meaningful post tonight, I will be giving updates on the Hours services that I will be going to tomorrow during the day INSTEAD of being at school ^_^ have a good night everyone!

Thursday Bento, holy week

So, Today's post will be a bit shorter, but I promise to post more tomorrow night, even though I won't have a lunch (I'll be at church for the Hours services instead of at school on Friday) Today's post will just be food, because I'm quite tired, and had a rather long day. And have been playing a LOT of portal 2. I'm so GLaD to be back... (yes, it's another reference)

Broccoli in cheese sauce flavored rice, fake chicken nuggets, and ketchup, because that actually sounds really good, and I can't wait to eat it tomorrow ^_^ (i've been looking forward to the cheesy rice and broccoli all week)

Wednesday of Holy Week bento

PORTAL 2 IS OUT. I stayed up until 1 AM playing it after I posted last night. I can't give any spoilers, but I will say a few things about it that don't give anything away. It has been amazingly optimized, so that it can run even on my laptop (4 years old, and worked nearly to death, poor Esmerelda, luckily I'll be getting a desktop for graduation, so that'll take most of the strain off her) 

The graphics are wonderful, the sounds... WOW. I've been looking at concept art for this game since last February, and had it pre-ordered for 4 months ahead of time, so when Valve released it early (yes, Valve is awesome. Working there is my dream job... or working for Steam, but.. mainly Valve) They released it at 11:30 last night, It took until 12 for it to finish downloading, decrypting, and verifying (and yes, I did already have it preloaded, I might add) but, then, I played for an hour, and was in absolute gamergirl heaven! (Seriously, the only words Sam could get out of me via text were "omgomgomgomgomgomgomg" and "AAAHHHHH!!!!PORTAL2ISOUT!!!!SOMUCHAWESOME!!!!!") 

Now that I'm done with my Portal 2 Appreciation for the moment.... (ok wait.. no I'm not, back to Portal 1:
"Aperture Science would like to remind you that the weighted companion cube will never threaten to stab you, as it cannot talk"  
and as a sidenote, anyone who gets me one of these? I will love you forever: )

NOW! Onto the food! 

This should all look rather familiar, fake chicken nuggets in sweet and sour sauce, veggies, and rice, and then the goldfish cookie medley:

Yes, I'm being lazy, but, it's holy week, cut a girl a break, There's your post for the night!

Tuesday of holy week bento

Well, Assassins is over now. As I was going to be out anyways for not getting my target, I allowed my Assassin to shoot me, as it's better that he gets the point for taking me out and gets closer to winning then my having played meaning nothing ^_^ 

Secondly, tonight's holy Monday service was fantastic... I started out the evening by looking at my holy week book, and realizing that I've had it since I was ten, I'm eighteen now, and expected to be an adult. It was an odd realization for me, because it truly does not feel like it was 8 years ago that I was actually old enough to have my own holy week book. Pascha has been my favorite holiday for a long time, not only because it breaks the long Lenten fast (BACON!) but because it's a celebration of  Christ's resurrection. My dress for Holy Saturday is long and white, in celebration of Christ rising from the tomb on the third day, and raising the dead as he does. It is the happiest time of the year, and even if my Pascha does not often fall on the same weekend as American Easter, it is still the largest celebration of my year. (and yes, we do roast lamb on a spit, it's pretty amusing)

So! Onto the food!

Noah's Ark themed lunch today!
we have ark shaped waffles, and I got a lion and giraffe for my sausage shapes (Elena got a bear and an elephant)  and then we have mixed veggies again, because I'm in a veggie mood!

There's your post!
