Last night we had the first annual (hopefully) Oktoberfest at church. It was a lot of fun - I mean, when is a potluck NOT fun?? There are always so many casseroles at those things! However, this time there was not any jello salad with vegetables in it. That is my all time favorite potluck food. Although there was a lot of kraut and sausage since it was an Oktoberfest/the Reformation celebration (and a keg and lots of wine...).
There was also a trivia contest!! I love trivia. This one was over Martin Luther, the Lutheran church, and random German words. My team (Team Schnitzel) totally kicked butt even though we were comprised of two not raised Lutherans who go to a Lutheran church (me and Jeremy) a Catholic, and two Lutherans. The other team (The Bavarian Boozers) was all Lutheran and they went down! So I may have read up on Luther and the Lutheran church on Wikipedia this week in preperation for the trivia contest. That might have helped us just a bit... I can't help it, I like reading about stuff on Wikipedia. We each won a "Luther is my Homeboy" cup filled with riesens. Our pastor was wearing a "Luther is my Homeboy" t-shirt and had to ask Jeremy what it meant. It was pretty funny.
