Go brain, go!

A couple of things I'm thinking about tonight:

- Dr. Rick Davis puts the smack down on his blog, aintsobad, today. Among other things, he says,
"... we can function with the church as organic. Jesus says so. He is always talking about how the Kingdom grows in organic germs.

So, we could stop acting like the church/Kingdom grows organizationally. For every Saddleback, there are ten BoardedUps. (By the way every mega-church is about two generations away from a big, empty building. Go to England, drive by Spurgeon's old church. Empty.) Prayer, Bible teaching in understandable expressions and connections to the soil/air make a church grow organically."

WHOA! Yikes. I'm thinking you might want to check out the whole post.

- Stupid Texas. Everybody over here drives trucks. Now, I don't really care if you drive a truck - but for crying out loud, learn how to park it! Always overlapping the freakin' lines and stuff. Hey Zeke, there's only so many parking spaces under the sun - you can use one at a time per car (unless you can figure out how to use fewer). Here's what I think. If Bubba can't figure out how to put it between the lines, he loses the right to complain if, sayyyy... I dunno... his tires get slashed, or something - speaking hypothetically, of course. I know, I know... that's not love. Fine. Try this: If you want to straddle the parking line, I would LOVE for you to get hemmorhoids. How 'bout that?

- My Name Is Earl. This show is TV gold, if you ask me. An original plot device that makes sense, and serves to provide material that moves the story along every week? That's more than you can expect from most 30 minute sitcoms. Genius. Plus? Jason Lee and that super-hot chick (and no, I'm not talking about Jamie Pressly). Gold, I tells ya.

- Evidently, due to a dispute with the franchisee, all the Krispy Kremes in Houston will be shut down, and re-opened as Jumble's Dough Factory & Coffee Bar. No more KK for H-town.
In other news - I couldn't care less.

- Looks like the Texans are exercising the option on David Carr's contract. Contrary to popular will, it seems he might be around for 3 more years, making it fairly obvious who they are going to choose with their #1 draft pick.

- Reggie Bush, RB from USC - in case you were wondering.

- I think my upstairs neighbor must be an insomniac who weighs about a gazillion pounds, and is only endowed with a single leg - forcing him or her to hop their considerable girth around the apartment at all hours of the day and night.

- Dear Grey's Anatomy,
I'm glad we finally got to get together for a bit the other night. I have heard so many great things about you from people whose opinions I trust. I'm sorry for falling asleep during your third episode. Don't get me wrong - you're great, and all, but... I'm afraid you might not be for me. Oh, no, it's not because of anything you really did or didn't do. It's more of just a place that I'm kind of at right now. I mean, I know it's not what it used to be, but I've had this thing going with The West Wing for a long time, and with reruns and syndication and all, I don't want to mess that up. Things are also really good between LOST and me, right now. The truth is, I just don't have room in my life for another show. Especially one so complicated and long-running as you seem to have become. Oh -no... those are good things, just.... like I said... not for me - not right now. I'll always keep you on my external hard-drive, though. And maybe one day - after this new season of Survivor has come and gone - we can give things another try? I'd hate to give up so easily, you know? I'm not a quitter, but I know you deserve more.

-Yeah, whole post might help. That blurb? Made no sense whatsoever. Well, the examples given don't, anyway.

-Yes, that parking thing is a problem. Here at SMU, there are so many people with expensive foreign cars that think they DESERVE two or even three spaces. So glad I pay $300/year to deal with that. Looks like we both need to order some of these.

-Agreed. Genius. And Randy is teh awesome.

-Wha? Jumble's? What in the world?


-See above.

-It's a universal truth that when you live in apartments, your upstairs neighbor will weigh 400 lbs. and have at least one game leg. Or, as was the case at my old apt., having violent screaming fights with his wife that end with what sounds suspiciously like a body hitting the floor.

-Dear JT,
I'm glad you've enjoyed our relationship. But like all old, tired elephants, it's time for me to retire to the graveyard where my brittle bones will fade into dust and continue the TV life cycle. Find another, younger love.

Survivor over Grey's Anatomy? SERIOUSLY?

Killing me.

krysten said...

LOL at Bill's comments.

particularly the one with the link to the cards, the one about the body hitting the floor upstairs, and the letter from "TWW".

i'm pretty much "meh" on greys anatomy, the west wing, AND survivor (not to mention football!).

i had a speculatively (i think i made that up) 400lb upstairs neighbor who sounded like they must have had tuberculosis. *shudder*

my mom had one that was a tiny little asian guy who SOUNDED like a 400lb tasmanian devil. i dont know what they make floor/ceilings out of these days (or in "those" days, as all these places were probably built in the 50s.

Okay,i was going to go subject by subject but i can't/won't because (here's a little bullet point thing of my own):
1) i have no memory to comment on things read just 5 minutes ago

2) i am too lazy to go back and reread it

that said, you mentioned "my name is earl"? btw - who's favorite movie was raising arizona? you betcha. it's your old roomdog. and although it's a great show it's a white trash version of a white trash epic. this just to say props to nicky cage and johnny goodman.

secondly, i'm going with shelly on this but survivor takes precedent over grey's anatomy? over anything? sad deluted boy, one word- Heigl---it's australlian for tv gold

third, and i have held my tongue on both yours and jamie's blog for long enough,
the west wing is just a show...let me repeat this slowly. j u s t a s h o w. and one written by liberals who portray the world as a better place if they ran it. oops that slipped, sorry. point is, if i want a flowery world picture of how good democrats are, i'd move next door to the ragin cajun carville and be done with it. i enjoyed the show for 2 seasons but as i'm old fashioned, i like being preached to in a church, and even then i don't really like like it. but hey, you're young i don't blame you.
love and kisses
your old roommate

1. Pascal was an idiot... His wager makes Christianity a joke and otherwise nothing to do with Knowing Christ or following him or being part of His kingdom.

2. Texans don't have names like "Zeke" at least give us more love than a bunch of dumb Cajuns named Thibodeaux.

3. Pictures for backgrounds suck!

and one more:

If you're interested in reason and faith, might I point you to Soren Kierkegaard???
