Busy month!

I just wanted to let everyone know that I haven't disappeared. I have not been home for most of the past month.

My best friend's family recently bought a new house about 20 miles outside the Oklahoma City metro area on the shore of a nice lake. It needed quite a bit of work before they fully moved in, so I spent most of the first two weeks in June helping them out and spending some quality time with my best friend. Ever since I've had to take a break from school, we have seen little of each other, especially since she spent the spring semester in Sicily. Unfortunately, Internet access is quite sparse out there.

Subsequently, my best friend and I traveled to Iowa for 5 days for the wedding of one of our closest friends. I am incredibly happy for her and her new wife. I only wish that we could have celebrated this wonderful event at home in Oklahoma, but, disgustingly, like the rest of the Bible Belt, Oklahoma has banned gay-marriage.

After that, I had only 4 days of rest at home before leaving for a vacation with my family. We are spending the week in San Antonio and Corpus Christi, Texas. Hopefully I will be back home this weekend and will resume regular posts next week.


  1. Thanks for the update. I wondered were you went. I thought, well maybe Sammy went in the rapture. :)

  2. I had missed you and hoped everything was okay. Thanks for the update.

  3. @Bruce- The Rapture?! Ha! Fundamentalist Christians hate universalists just as much as apostate atheists. A chicken is more likely to be raptured than me! :P

    @Doug- No problem!

    Sorry if I worried anyone. I kept telling myself I needed to write a short post to let everyone know what I was up too, but it kept slipping my mind because I was having so much fun.

    However, vacations with my family are the opposite of fun (I only came to make my mother happy), so I've been looking for any distractions I can. I'd love to write some actual posts, but I'm in such close quarters with my family that they wouldn't leave me alone until I told them what I was doing. No one in my family knows anything about my religious beliefs and I take every precaution to make sure they won't find out. It would be a disaster. I only feel safe writing this now because they are all sleeping.

  4. You've got an interesting blog, here. I look forward to when you have the time for further posts. Also, I've been enjoying your comments on Doug's blog.
