Back from The Sessions, Again

September 13, 2004

[I see people]Mike & I got back on Saturday in time for supper. I’ll just type super-random things… Here are my Soliton photos.

Jared and Regina, thank you for opening your home to us.
Greg, Jeph… so good to connect with you guys face-to-face. The Bunny!

I enjoyed lunches with “Provocative Oozer” Spencer, “Allelon Aussie” Malcolm, and “Solomon’s Giant” Doug.

Watched In America — a wonderful movie I’d never even heard of. Also enjoyed Donnie Darko (first time) and Magnolia (second time). Got very little sleep.

I did not say “vagina” over the P.A. this year. Instead, Greg dropped the F-bomb, not once, not twice, but three times.

I can’t remember the last time I danced so much — to 80’s tunes. This is a conference?

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.

  1. Thanks for the shots, Jon – I feel like I was there!

  2. Jon,
    THose pictures were amazing. Thanks so much for sharing. You caught moments I totally missed. I was hoping you got some of Greg and Jeph making out, but I’ve got my own.
    Maybe someday, if I can pay someone enough, I’ll have a blog to post them to. (just figured I’d say it before Greg got a chance…)
    =)
    Love you and miss you already. Regina and I both feel like you’re family. Give our love to Kay and the kids.
    Jared

  3. BTW, Christian & Sids names are reversed…

  4. All I wanna know is, what body-art did you come back with? (Sounds like a very cool time! Maybe next year.)

  5. Making out with men? Dropping F-bombs?
    Guys… I don’t know how to say that but… i didn’t even GO to Soliton! My car broke down in Nebraska on the way to California. Whoever the crap that studly looking handsome guy in the pictures is, it ain’t me! Seriously. I wasn’t even there.
    For real.

  6. Mike: Maybe next time?
    Randall: No, it was communicated to me in no uncertain terms that if I came back with permanent body-art, I would be sleeping outside.
    Greg: Snap snap, grin grin, wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more?
    Jared: Thanks, I fixed the names.
    “If I can pay someone enough, I’ll have a blog to post them to”
    Funny you should say that. I actually have one set up for you. It’s easy to use, it already has a nice layout and even has compelling content… and it’s free! Check it out.

  7. WOW. From the very brief (really) description, and the photos you have, I suspect it was very radical. This is exactly something my brother would enjoy, but my mother would totally think absurd.
    When he wanted to have scripture and a “Jesus” (fish or something)sign tattooed on his body, mom mumbled something about “worshiping the Lord in an abominable way”.
    Hmm. How paradoxical is that?
    I’m glad you and Mikeeeeeeeeee had a great time! 😀 w0000000t!

  8. Who are you, mystery person? I swore this (and the other one) was left by Jan, but she denies it (while admiring what you wrote). Please sign your name!

  9. It was me. Your blog didn’t let me sign! 😛
    ~kreek’t~ <--- signing just in case it happens again mwahaha
