My creepy dream..

I had this crazy dream last night that I was in this huge dark room like a cavern and I was surrounded by these tribal looking people. Just like something out of an Indiana Jones movie. I felt like I was trapped there even though I wasn't tied up or anything. These people just kept looking at me with this crazy wild stare in their eyes and then they slowly started to do this weird dance. They like bounced up and down while pushing their hands in the air, sort of like when people go "whoop! whoop!".

They still had that crazy look in their eyes as they danced but now they were looking all around themselves as if they were in fear. Something told me that I should start doing the dance too if I wanted to survive so I started doing it. Then they focused their attention to the back of the huge room/cavern and it was dark so I couldn't see what they were seeing. Then it emerged from the darkness.. a giant cartoon bug. Yes it was like a 3D animated toy bug but it was huge, like over 10 ft tall and it had this smiley green face but the weird thing is that the bug was walking on its hind two legs and it was doing the same dance that the people were doing except it looked like it was the bug's natural way of moving.

It started to make its way across the room and through the middle of the crowd and I could tell that these people were really frightened and they dared not stop dancing because somehow I knew that if anyone stopped dancing they would be eaten by this thing. I woke up before anything else happened. :p

This little guy actually looks a lot like the bug in my dream except the one in my dream had 2 more pairs of legs.

I don't like the phrase "God only gives you as much as He knows you can handle."

I don't think it's Biblical, and I don't think it's true.

I have been given many things in my life that I could not handle. I can think of many things that could happen in the future that I know I would not be able to handle. At all.

If I could handle everything, why would I need to run to God? Why would I need to give Him any of that burden if He's only giving me what I can carry on my own?

Every one of us here brings our own experience, thoughts and hearts, and we share them with each other- it is here where we are connected at the most fundamental level of existence.

I can tell you exactly what's been streaming through my consciousness the last two days:

"I hate state-mandated testing. I haaaaaate No Child Left Behind. Why is it only 8:30am? I'm going to flip EVERY DESK IN THIS CLASSROOM!"

Man a stream of conscienceness thread...you asked for it. Well there is a girl at work, who is absolutely stunning like 12 out of 10, but she is also an admitted pot head. And while that disgusts me there is something about her that almost makes me want to ignore it, though I know better and have not made a move its still weird. Oddly enough her roommates are all really strong christians. I dont know what happened with her but it kills me it happene to someone so beautiful. Also I have to ok at 10am. I know it wont be fun and will rag all day so i dont care but i also know i will pay for staying up all day tomorrow. Besides I need to earn money for a tattoo so I cant really complain too much. Now if only i could find something better than my current job in this dead end college town without having to move and leaving all my friends behind...also I love this song. Its 'And we danced' by Macklemore and it's fantastic though parental advisory the lyics arent the best. anyways dinner just got here and its chinese so im going to eat...

If keeping a healthy physique were easy in our American culture, we wouldn't have an obesity epidemic!

(I don't know about you, but all the motivation I need is knowing that no man on my father's side of the family has made it to the age of 60 without either having a heart attack, or flat out dying of other health reasons. I am bound and determined to prove that my last name doesn't sentence me to ballooning up to 250+ lbs after the age of 35.)

I am tired of people saying they are one way only to find they are the complete opposite. Just be straight with me! Is that too much to ask? Obviously....

...been thinking about how it seems as if some Christians are more in love with the trappings of Christian culture than they are with Christ.....then wondering if, how, and to what extent that applies to me.....I want chocolate.....I am annoyed by certain phrases Christians use such as "lovin' on" someone - for some reason it makes me think of Paula Dean slathering butter on some unsuspecting victim, and "Jesus with skin on" - I hate that one even more, it's just creepy sounding to me, but I understand what is meant by it...it's amazing that we think of people in the third world being in such dire straights, but they are praying for us in America because our materialism has made us lukewarm...

I've been reading bits a pieces of the Old Testament Pseudepigrapha (books not included in the Bible) and they seem to be more detailed accounts of things that happened and are recorded (sparsely) in the Bible. For example: The Book of Adam records in detail the Genesis creation, their activities in the garden and even the fruit they ate from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil - a fig tree (God, if you'd put me there I wouldn't have touched the fruit). Also, the Book of Enoch (I haven't read much of it) refers in great detail to the Nephilim described around the time of Noah.

I'm just wondering if the Torah was just a pared-down version of these early Jewish writings (focusing only on God and his story and not the details and on the elements that were inspired by the Holy Spirit?) Because the accounts are quite similar in both the Bible and the Book of Adam and Book of Enoch, they just have far more detail. Naturally, elements are rather fantastical but that happens when the story is shared for some time and integrity of the oral story isn't paramount. Thoughts?

It's 10:52 pm here, and I really want some Pepsi. Like, a lot. There's some in the fridge, but I'm thinking it's stupid to drink caffeine right now.

Is this reply okay, Arwen?
I'm so sorry. Please forgive me for my misunderstanding and excitability. The last thing I want to do is annoy people. I'll take my heavy post elsewhere in the forums.
