Exciting!

I didn't know this! Jennifer Ehle (the actress who played Elizabeth Bennet in the '95 version of Pride and Prejudice) was born here in Winston-Salem and lived here for eighteen years!!! I was just looking at the Wikipedia article about Winston-Salem and saw her name in the list of famous residents. There are other famous people whose names I recognize, but the actress who was in one of my favorite movies? That's neat!

Also exciting, I've mentioned the Extreme Weekend at camp before (2nd paragraph under the video); the brochure is up for 2008! September 26-28. It's $35 for singles and only $25 if you get your registration in before the 15th. (There's an extra $18 charge if you go canoeing...I'm not sure yet if I want to do that or not.) If any of my readers (18 and up anyway) are interested the brochure can be downloaded off of this page. It would be really cool if anyone was able to go, because I'm not sure that I'm going to know anyone at camp! Not that that'll stop me from going. :)

Do you know how much "above 18" these campers could be? Camp would probably be fun. However, I think this is the same weekend as the Stokes Stomp, which is an annual weekend festival. It has been doing on for years in our county seat. The festival is sponsored by the Arts Council and has a parade, musical performances, a children's area and arts and crafts.

Ah...I really don't know! I'm guessing anyone who is up to hiking and rappelling and rock climbing and other activities like that would be welcome. *shrugs* Older people might not fit in as well, but you're not that old.

I'm sorry it's not going to work out that I can come...I was really thinking about it for a while, but my schedule this month/semester is quite hectic :( But maybe if you do it next year.

And I actually knew that about Jennifer Ehle...but I saw it on the special features of the DVD. I thought it was pretty exciting!

OF COURSE I'M NOT OLD!!!! :0 Who would suggest something like that? I will never grow old! (Well, I guess I might but just temporarily...) ;-> I was just wondering if it would be just young adults, college-aged or everyone from 18-60 or 50... or whatever age stops getting around a mountain well.

Aw, I was hoping you could come, Jessica. :(
Ah, I haven't ever watched it on DVD, so I hadn't seen that.

I didn't say you were old, Amanda!!! I'm going to guess that it'll be 18-35-ish...or "-esque" (did you hear that conversation on Sunday?)..."ish" works better in this case.

Anyway...I really don't know, I'm just guessing.

Temporarily?? :P

I know you didn't say I am old... That was the point. Would such a thing even cross someone's mind... :) Anyway...

Yes, temporarily... If I don't die first, (which would be a blessing to go to Heaven sooner than later, although I'm content with whatever the Lord wills,) I will get old physically, on the Earth. HOWEVER, with a glorified body, perfect, healthy and content, I just 'imagine' being young, but whatever perfection looks like and feels like, I can't wait!

I heard the ish comment... I think smart people use ish... :) Actually, it made me think of a college professor who turned many words into adverbs and nouns... What's wrong with verbs, adjectives....?
