Wheee! I THINK I had a weekend in there somewhere :) I took some vacation days to get Thursday and Friday off - spent most of Thursday working on church documents for new members and visitors, then had a two-hour conversation (the first real talk I've had) with the minister for corrections.

*mild frustration* the minister of my Unitarian Universalist church is hostile to "UUism" as a religion. This created some cognetive dissonance for me, but I think I've resolved it.

Friday...whoo, I wasted Friday. I didn't get out of the house until 2:00, at least, and I don't think I accomplished anything with my time that afternoon--I made dinner, that might have been it. Yeesh.

Saturday--Ip had a cookie party, lots of baking and some new faces. I majorly carb'ed out, this is probably a step backward in that "slim down by pridefest" goal I've got.

sunday...Church stuff until 3:30, then lunch, didn't really start my "day" until 5:00.

I've got a *five* day weekend coming up, so hopefully I can get some stuff accomplished--all the church work I've done is good stuff that I'm pleased with, but it adds such a crunched feeling to things!

I've been thinking of visiting the Unitarian church in San Antonio when I move.

What is UUism tho?

Well, the short run-down is that Unitarian Universalism doesn't have a "creed" (no code stating what they believe), and was founded from two weird branches of Christianity back in 1961. Over time, the UU church has drifted way far from what the original two churches--Unitarianism and Universalism--believe. So, the minister was trying to make a distinction between the Unitarian Universalist Association (the organization that Unitarians and Universalists belong to now) and the "religion" of Unitarian Universalism. It's a bit esoteric, really.

Speaking of church...
What's the deal with the intern? I read the email from Loer, and I'm very confused. Did she wig out and start throwing things? Just sit at home and stare at the walls and not do her job? What?

Re: Speaking of church...
I'm not really sure, I just got the Newsletter article about it. I'll try to dredge up some church gossip to see what happened the next time I'm down there. I know that Davidson's pretty demanding of his interns (in a "challenging mentor" sort of way, not a "bombastic boss" sort of way). Maybe she just wasn't up to the strain.
