I went on an adventure to Goodwill yesterday, looking for planters for my new herbs (more posts to come on that!). While I was there I had to stop by the shoes. Now, I have pretty big feet - but nothing like this!

On Friday, a volcano that has been dormant in Chile for a suspected 9000 years erupted causing the evacuation of more than 4000 people. It caught everyone by surprise, but somebody grabbed a camara. Here's what Chileans were looking at:

It's a crazy time in the world with natural disasters adding up. In case you don't know what's going on in the world, check out the earthquake in China and the cyclone in Myanmar. If ever there was a time to pray for the nations, it is now!

The Secret Joys Of Elevators

So my office is on the second floor of the church which requires one, yes only one flight of stairs to reach. However every time I'm headed downstairs (or upstairs) I spot that beautiful, beckoning, steel masterpiece calling my name.

Yes - the elevator. I try to be good and take the stairs, but here's the deal: I wear heels a lot and wouldn't want to injure myself! Truth be told I make up lots of excuses for using the elevator...but that's not actually the point of this post.

The point of this post comes from the fact that while I was in said elevator this week, I found myself busting a move (and the move was not at all cool)! I was seriously into it, and suddenly I stopped and laughed at myself and thought of the ridiculous things I do (or other people do) when in the elevator.

Really, it's just 10 seconds out of my day that I can be completely insane and nobody can see me! So, with that being said, here's a list I've compiled (and by compiled I mean totally made up) of funny things people do while in elevators:

  • Dance
  • Do a quick clothes adjust (did someone say wedgie?)
  • Dance ridiculously
  • Employ the face (or gesture) they wanted to use when having a "difficult" conversation with their coworker
  • Sing (this one is funny because the elevator is NOT sound proof)
  • Sniff check (for those of you who don't know this one, that would be head to the right, arm above head, sniff)
  • Handstands (really Kenz?)
  • Stretches

So the next time you're in the elevator I hope you think of this post. And I hope it makes you laugh. And I hope you do one of the things on that list. And speaking of the list, did I forget anything?
