Too funny not to post.

So I sent an email to one of my best friends in Chicago tonight,

"hey babe- i miss you!
this website should help you with some of the tasks you have weighing on you right now.
you're welcome."

The link leads to the official Oregon state website's "Moving Tips" page. As in, here's how you can move to Oregon! (She has no plans to move to Oregon). Cute, right? Hint hint, I miss you, move to Oregon, ok funny email, love you bye!

Except I am perpetually multi-tasking and so rather than waste the approximately 1.2 seconds it takes to open up a compose mail window by just waiting on gmail, I was looking up recipes. I had just copied the Oregon website address, but found a good looking tomato-pie recipe in the meantime and without thinking copied that one too.

Then I wrote the email to the friend (who is, btw, recently married), over "website" pressed paste and linked her to... the recipe.

"Hey babe, this should help you with some of the tasks you have right now..."

Human Needs Global Resources Covenant, 2009

As fellow travelers on this journey, we commit to this covenant before God. Lord, in Your mercy, hear these our prayers:

When confronted with scarcity, need, and inadequacy, may we be nourished by the Bread of Life and the Cup of Salvation. Abundance overflows from Your table, sustaining all who come in faith. Father, help us.

When monotony blurs our vision and dulls our senses, may we encounter others as Christ did, through intentional presence in daily life, submitting as clay to be formed into vessels filled with the Spirit. Christ, guide us.

When wounded by the fractured condition of Your people, may we be united by Your Lordship in faith, hope, and love; seeing, as through the facets of a diamond, the beautiful spectrum of Your light reflected onto Your holy Church joined in praise. Spirit, empower us.

When all Creation groans, afflicted by injustice and driven to despair, may the promise of redemption root us in the hope of Your Kingdom: "Behold, I am making all things new!"

Holy Trinity, send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve You with gladness and singleness of heart.
