The weekend was extra bland this time #fooledme. The highlights of the weekend were going to church, doing my hair, and getting my cable wire fixed. Yay O_o womp.
Since I’ve moved to Indy, I’ve gone to a total of 5 different churches: Emmanuel Missionary Baptist Church, Eastern Star Church-Main Campus, Eastern Star Church-Northeast Campus, Phillips Temple CME Church, and St. Luke Baptist Church. Eastern Star is the mega church of Indy that is working on its 4th location. And the pastor goes to all 3– 8:30am at Main Campus, 9:30am at Northeast, 10:45am at Northwest, and back to the Main Campus for noon service. I have no clue how he does it all, but it just seems pretty ridiculous to me. He just pops in for the sermon and dips out right after to head to the next location. One of my girls, a native Hoosier was brought up in Phillips Temple. It was my first time going to a CME church. Nothing was too different from normal, I just didn’t feel like I belonged there. Emmanuel is the first church I went to out here and has stuck as my favorite. Initially, my coworker invited me to tutor after work with her and then I was convinced to stay for bible study, and then I was invited to come to Sunday service. I really enjoy the pastor and the casual vibe, but they are on their job of helping the community. They even started a partnership with NASA and I’m all for it! Yesterday, I was intending to go to EMBC and when I get there at 10:30am, nobody was in the parking lot <I figured they went to another location or were having a special service> so I went right down the street to Eastern Star to find out they didn’t start service until noon. Between the two is St. Luke Baptist Church that had a marquee to celebrate the 27th pastoral anniversary. I knew this meant a long service, but it started at 10 so I parked and went in. Of course, I was right and they had a guest preacher so I had to dip out when they were giving more gifts to the pastor and first lady. I may come back another Sunday to hear the preacher, who can allegedly sang very well.
Also, this weekend I spent all day Saturday doing my hair in a full sew-in weave. I’ve never worn my hair this long, but I wanted a different look. It took the most time to do the closure so that it looked somewhat real. I combined a regular closure method with a sew-in invisible part method because I am not for glue in my hair. It took extremely long to close the weave and make it look okay. I took it down 3 times before it was tolerable. I may take it down and redo it one last time before the weekend. It really just take practice.
During this hair stuff, I had to track down the cable man to freggin fix my cable cord that Cooli O. just decided to eat one day. That same day, he ate my window blinds, and eyeglasses. I found the lens on the ground and he found my hand on his rump! The cable would go out whenever anybody would go by the cord, which is right next to the door. And it also affected the internet. Good thing I had some dvds on deck that I needed to watch. I watched Following (by the writer of Inception), The Final Cut with Robin Williams, Adaptation with Nicolas Cage and School Daze A Spike Lee Joint that was spoofed by Alicia Keys. Oh yeah, Friday I also went back to Morty’s and saw the comedian Mike Britt. I really love it when comedians can freestyle based on the audience like he did. All in all, it was a pretty bland weekend, but I made it sound somewhat fun, huh?
