far fig newt in

So...has anyone noticed I love using these "..." ? Hmm...too bad I can't add them into my speech pattern. You know...for emphasis. I guess I could poke the air three times in a row. Or maybe I could start saying, "dot, dot, dot." I will try one or the other tomorrow.
Training is still going well - for those of you who want to know. I am enjoying myself. I realize that "Shannon" and "mutual funds" don't really mix well. As someone said on my facebook page today, "I never saw you as the business type." Yeah, either. But I gotta pay the bills somehow.
Lea is looking at loans for houses out in Cali. And Wicked is leaving LA in January of next year! Phooey. That's all I have to say about that. I still want to go see it in New York.
I am going to try to make it to Jacksonville for a visit in December or January. I would like to have my ordination service then as well. We'll see.
I still miss all my friends. But I have come out of the funk I was in for the last few weeks. There's so much possibility in the air. It's scary - but soooo cool. I definitely want to squeeze all I can out of this life. I've crossed a few things off my "bucket list." I don't actually have one. But if I did...I would have crossed these off:

Tour Europe
Jump out of a perfectly good airplane
Travel around the US...singing and playing guitar
Own a super fantastic, expensive guitar
Be in a band
Own a motorcycle
Graduate college
Get a tattoo
Be thanked on cd liner notes for a kick butt band
Go on a cruise (to the Bahamas)
Hear other people singing my songs (when they didn't know I written them)
Be completely and utterly open and honest with someone
Get married
Have sex
Get divorced

Ok...that last one wouldn't have really been on there.'s pretty much the best thing that ever happened to me. Although I would have done anything possible to make it work. One person just isn't enough when it comes to marriage. I think that's why there are usually two people. Hmm. Yeah.

Well...I've led a decently awesome life so far. And I still have a good ways to go. I'll add a few more things to the list that I have yet to accomplish:

Get my master's degree
Get ordained (soooo close)
See a Broadway show - on Broadway (preferrably Wicked)
Go to Hawaii
Make a cd of original songs
Pay off all my debt
Meet Josh Groban (whoops...already did that one. Thanks Lea!)
Write a book
See God face to face

That last one can wait a while though. I need time to do all the others. I'm pretty sure I'd have to be dead to see God's face. But, hey - if you wanna show me while I'm alive - bring it on. Oh - and can I hear your voice too? That'd be freaking sweet. For reals. Sorry...tangent.

Man...I love you guys. Whoever reads this (all three of you) - know that you are the best. And if you chuckled at least once during this work here is done.

All my love,

Maybe I should make a list of things I want to accomplish. But I'm pretty lazy right now.

Probably more than three people....
