Mmm, the joys of experimenting in college

College Crab Surprise

1 lb crab/imitation crab (unshelled)
1 1/2 cup minute rice
1 unopened mac and cheese cheese packet
1 1/2 cup water
1/4 cup milk
a little butter

simmer crab for 15-20 minutes.
mix all ingredients together in large covered bowl. microwave for 2 minutes, stir, microwave for 3 more minutes. Stir. Let cool.
Serves 2-3.

a good explaination as to why the end times don't worry Lutherans

"Lutheran eschatology also plays a role. Because all is taken care of in Christ (justification by faith alone without the works of the law), we need not be busy reading the "signs of the times", something American Christians are especially busy doing. If Christ is coming today (and for all I know he is), I wish to be caught planting a tree, or blogging, or having a nice supper with my spouse. Fulfilling our daily vocations IS being prepared for Christ's coming, and this by the power of the Holy Spirit."

I slept until 9:37 today! And yesterday I watched TV and read a book for pleasure!
Peace,
Chris

The Neo-cons get it right about China

Done with finals. Ahhh.

I was online and checked out this quiz. I am...







Y...Yttrium
You scored 40 Mass, 20 Electronegativity, 59 Metal, and 0 Radioactivity!
Yttrium? Yttrium??? You're messing with me, right? That's not a real element. Really? If you say so. Okay... how about: You are really a solitary creature, and you're somewhat set in your ways. You work, consciously or subconsciously, towards the betterment of society, but I guess you do this by befriending it's strangest elements. You're kind of a spaceman/woman, but in the end you're allright. You should try to be with the benign weirdos of the world because, by goodness, no one else will. Oh, it says here that you are abundant on the moon. Interpret as you will.







My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:



















You scored higher than 59% on Mass





You scored higher than 16% on Electroneg





You scored higher than 66% on Metal





You scored higher than 1% on Radioactivity

An unpleasant reminder

10,000 people a month are still dying in Darfur. 2 MILLION displaced. It is our bloody moral responsibility to stop it!
Good eve,
Chris

Check this picture from the Lutheran Bend trip

The guy in front is Joel, the RA here at Christus House, the guy in back is of course yours truly.
In bigger news I'm pretty sure what I'm going to be up to next year, going on a mission! I'll be in the ELCA's Under-30 program. My top 3 places I'd like to go are Kenya India Egypt.
Peace,
Chris
