Okay, I give in

Yes, July has been an especially slow month for the Replacement Friend Blog. Of course this does not mean our lives are slow. Steve is getting married August 5th to a surfer girl he met in Hawaii. Mike is taking the MCAT. Jeff... I don't really know what's happening. I know that he is maybe not going to law school this year. Maybe there are more details on his blog. I can't remember.

Either way stuff is happening. Oh! And I passed my first year of Medical School! And, Lisha and I are doing very well.

I know this post is lame and boring. You know what, don't even bother commenting. But hey, something is better than nothing, right?

Oh July, I thought you would never come.

As per usual, I love sharing with people the music that I love. So it is always my hope that you will find something awesome in this little 8track I created. I am loving Passion Pit recently. They sound a lot like MGMT... but that's not a bad thing. Other highlights for me also include the Stars track, and the Jealous Girlfriends. But it is all awesome, and is all really catchy.

I would love to hear if you actually like any of the music I put up. Also if you want to download the tracks I put in this mix, just leave a comment and I will get them to you somehow.

oh life...

Three parts.

Part one... Lisha and I have supposedly mastered Craigslist. We decided that most likely we wouldn't have a patio in Seattle so we sold our Ikea patio set for just a little less then we bought it. Then we sold our Ikea bed frame in lieu of whimsical dreams of constructing our own headboard... plus the bed sits a little too low for my liking.

A few other things are spinning around in our heads to unload on Craigslist.

I kind of like it. I love eliminating the unnecessary. I like a clean desk, clean counters. I remember when I lived with Stephen how he would have all his books and mission memorabilia thrown all around the room. Me on the other hand, I like putting that stuff in boxes and accessing it when I feel the urge.

For the most part, Lisha is very much the same. She is really organized.

Now I'm not saying I'm clean, I am just stating my ideal. I don't like it when little bits of peanuts, or other food stuff are in a big jar or bag and left in the cupboard or fridge. So I combine things that are similar. This was done to the disgust of Lisha when I combined the honey roasted peanuts with the salted peanuts.

I also like a really organized computer. I hate it when there are things on my desktop (plus I swear it makes your computer run faster). I also like organizing all my documents in folders rather than throwing everything in "My Documents". I uninstall every unnecessary program.

Now on to part two... Lisha is in Canada. I started missing her right when she left. But this will mark her first time to Canada. You know, a lot is riding on this. I would really like her to say, "Wow, Canada is spectacular!" I'm not saying "I hope she likes it so we move there." I just want her to appreciate Canada.

Part three... so I just finished studying the immunology of diabetes. Did you know that research has been done to show us that we are more likely to choose mates who will compliment our immune system make-up? Yes, it is true!
