Daniel drove me into work this morning. This was the entirety of our conversation:

Daniel: Are you cranky again this morning?


Daniel: Do you ever feel like a plastic bag drifting through the wind wanting to start again?

Eli: No. Please not this again.

Daniel: Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin, like a house of cards, one blow from caving in?

Eli: I can't do it today. Please no Katy Perry right now. Or ever.

Daniel: [singing now] You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine. Just own the night like the 4th of July. CAUSE BABY YOU'RE A FIREWORK! COME ON SHOW--

It was at this point that I opened the passenger side door of the moving vehicle and rolled out onto the street.

And now, your pictures and distractions:

Some of the church kids watching Daniel teach them about CPR.

Somehow I have not mentioned this lady to you, even though she and her husband have been a big part of my life in Palau. This is "sister" Johnsen and she and her husband are Mormon missionaries in Palau. They have become a couple of my closest friends in Palau and after being here for 18 months, they are about to head back to the U.S. in 2 weeks. I will cry my eyes out when this happens. Although it will be nice to not have to lose at game night with them week after week anymore.

Crap to distract you from whatever you're supposed to be doing
Some incredibly weird and unexplained black and white photos. This might be my new favorite thing on the entire Internet. Thanks, Candice.

I am certain you will participate in this much longer than you should. Thanks, James.

Nice work, government of China!

A woman kills her husband over a cat. But she lives in Siberia, so she shouldn't be held responsible for anything she does.  Thanks, Jade.
