"Thanks and thanks again to Him who offers to the man whom the sorrows of life have assaulted and left naked–offers to him the fig leaf of the Word with which he can cover his wretchedness." -Søren Kierkegaard

My Bullet-Pointed Life

Posted in Day-To-Day, Friends by matt on Sunday, December 27, 2009


My family always took a pretty private approach to Christmas, but this year’s been just about as public as it gets. Parties, work, meeting new people, and lots of eating.

Cayla decided to throw a couple of Christmas parties for all the melancholy expats who didn’t have anywhere to go for Christmas – it was a really great time! I’ve posted some pictures of our shenanigans here.


In other news, I saw Avatar in 3D at the IMAX yesterday and it melted my face. Other than The Lord of the Rings, I’d say this was my favorite theater experience ever. So epic. Go see it.


The kindergartners skip anytime they go anywhere. I really don’t ever see them walk or run. They just skip and smile. They’re all dressed in red pinnochio costumes and the girls all have pigtails; if you were dressed this way, you’d skip too. It’s is the sweetest thing ever.

I’d teach kindergarten for free.


Oh and in a few days we’ll be flying north (Chaing Mai) for the winter, so I’ll probably be out of contact until after the first weekend of January. 5 days for just the two of us to relax and enjoy cool weather. We may even go rock climbing!

Take care, and I’ll see you all next year!

    Yes, the visuals in Avatar were amazing! Saw it in 3D, but not IMAX, sadly.
