so it’s friday… you know what that means…. i’m hitting up the video for Eminem’s “Sing for the Moment [of TRu]”… actually i was torturing my officemate with some pretty horrid “holy hip hop” a little bit ago but i couldn’t take it much more myself… i figured that one of us would explode like this whale if it kept up… “they might come after you in the alley/ if they don’t get saved at my youth rally” that’s where i drew the line… anyway… i’m off to do things that will blow your mind… like woah…. oh… speaking of woah… i am accepting prayers for the best resolution to a surprising turn of events… and that’s all i can say…

peace… love… bdg…

woah.  this is not a good day for my eyes… first i reset the DPI on this laptop so that all the fonts are actually legible… the downside, which i have to adjust to… is that EVERYTHING is tiny… it’s really trippy… but… i’ll adjust quickly i’m sure… it’s good to know that i’m fully utilizing the 1920×1200 display capabilities… so then if this adjustment wasn’t enough… my 19 inch flat panel display for my desktop is on the fritz… it’s 3 years old so i suppose it’s time was running thin but still… it’s irritating everything is so dark and streaky… blah… technology is trying to make me go blind…

um.  anyway… today is Thursday… American Idol was funny last night… i have a meeting tonight… and there’s snow all over the place still… some of these things are cool… some are not… oh… and there’s a new walk TRu up go peep dAT…

so if you’re like me and you’ve seen that starburst commercial and you think it might be cool to walk like that… be careful and don’t try it on the stairs… you’d be surprised how easy it is to fall down the stairs… and it smarts a bit too…

yeah so people are dumb… there’s no other way to say it… i mean… they KNOW that they are unsatisfied with life as it stands… and here i am with the answer in my hands… and they refuse to take it… they swear they can make it… their own way… on their own… fine… but stop telling me you feel so alone…

i’m gonna go now… maybe i’ll become the 2013th best music site on the web after today… getting better all the time…

peace… love… bdg…

oh another thing about the communion… after the 9:30 service it was funny because four of the other deacons were like patting me on the back and shaking my hand… like i had passed some test or something… yeah funny and a little weird…

more later…

peace… love… bdg…

so three people are at least somewhat interested in my happiness… makes a guy feel special… anyway… how about if in 28 days or so… if the audience is large enough and if i feel like it… i’ll explain why… deal? why 28? because i just saw an ad for that movie… (28 Days Later)… yep i’m as random and whimsical as ever…

anyway… so i served communion this week… one of the visible Deacon activities… and yeah, i know it sounds silly but i was a bit nervous… of course it went fine… i did the main sanctuary at the 9:30 service and the overflow room at the 11:00 service… i got to wear my suit and a cool blue tie (which apparently i found out later that i wore with that suit the last time, oh well)… anyway, it was my first official Deacon duty i guess… but i have learned a few things in the 3 weeks of my deaconship…

as a deacon:

1. everybody knows you… or least acts like it…

2. you must know everybody.. or at least act like it (difficult in a church with 1200+ members and lots of visitors)…

3. you must have all the answers…

4. you must be happy

i’m sure there’s more, but i’m off to rewrite the modern history books…

peace… love… bdg…

i wanna tell the world… if the smile on my face hasn’t given it away already….

well… no.. i’m not gonna tell… for now you’ll just have to enjoy the picture of me smiling… (in your mind)…

peace… love… bdg…

FRIDAY!… well this friday isn’t off to as good a start as normal fridays… i mean… normally i get the office to myself until like nine thirty… today there’s like three other people here already… what is that all about?…

anyway… thank God for (headphones)… were it not for the pair on my head right now… i’d be assaulted by the sounds of my officemate slurping his morning yogurt… yeah slurping… okay… first of all, yogurt is disgusting… i don’t know exactly what it is that i find so detestable but it might just be the texture… and second, slurping your food… i mean for real… i thought that was entirely something reserved for bad television comedies…

so i watched the end of American Idol last night, Wednesday’s episode anyway… i had only seen half of it due to basketball… man that show is funny… i’m loving the bets that Simon makes with the bad singers that tell him he’s wrong…

listened to Shaun Groves this morning as i drove into work… Invitation to Eavesdrop that’s such a good album… case in point…

What should I tell them when/
They’re thirsty Lord/
My cup is empty Lord/
Come and lead me here in this place/
Cuz I’m unashamed, but I’m unprepared/
And I’m just plain afraid…
…What Should I Tell Them – Shaun Groves

yeah. been there… anyway… i’m gonna go change the world… (wide web)…

peace… love… bdg…

ah see… yesterday i played basketball… and i really didn’t feel well… i was very lightheaded and whatnot… so my shot was off and i couldn’t hold onto the ball very well… my handle was really tight and my defense was solid again… in the first game i had the guy i was guarding so frustrated i think he almost punched me… see, i’m not much of a post player… so he decided to try to post me up all night… the problem with that is that when i defend the post, my intent is that you never get the ball… see i figure if you get the ball in position… i’m done for… so the dude only got the ball like 3 times… every other time they passed it to him down low i either stole it or knocked it out of bounds… anyway… i may have to come out Friday to make up for my offensive display (or displacement as it was)…

anyway… the sky was very clear… i got to see all the cool constellations… big dipper, little dipper, orion, cassiopeia, draco, the whole gang… good stuff… and i wrote a pretty cool review that may never get published… well… i’ll publish it, if the guy won’t… let me give him a chance then i’ll link it here…

peace… love… bdg…

yeah.  so… kevin max blocked me on AIM… i think that’s pretty lame…  his fanboys attacked my character in order to justify his action… i say, whatever… perhaps i’ll never interview him… there are plenty more interesting fish in the sea…

peace… love… bdg…
