Luther is my Homeboy

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.

This Lutheran won a Catholic trivia contest last year with a whole team of Lutherans. All the other teams were Catholic. Then we had an impromtu parade through the streets.

so, the jell-o with fruit in it reminded me of when we were in Flordia visiting granny and papa when we went to their friends house (Alice?) and we had orange jell-o with carrots in it and it had mayonaise on top and you thought it was whip cream and ate it all in one bite and then realized it wasn't! haha!!!! P.S. its really windy right now! gusts up to 50 mph!!!

Did you know that Papa and I were raised Lutherans and we were married in a Lutheran Church?

Hey, why don't you think about getting a Master's degree in journalism or communication. Seems that you have a real passion for news.

I was baptised Lutheran as a baby, I think. Ask mom. I think I remember going to Granny and Papa's Lutheran church in WV. I'm pretty sure it's that church that I'm thinking of. I was pretty young.
