ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL???

For the record, i haven’t yet seen the games from yesterday, but i have them on my DVR and i’m planning to enjoy them soon… This weekend disappeared from me rather quickly as i spent the time organizing my CDs at home and tying to get them all catalogued on my computer for better accessibility… i managed to get through about 600 of them… quite a few boxes to go and then there’s the six boxes here at work to deal with… nope, i’m not complaining at all… i’m quite fortunate, i know…

I’M DREAMING OF A WHITE DRIVEWAY

When i wasn’t digging through the crates of albums, i was outside shovelling and playing in the snow with the littles… that’s right, snow!… and even though it was only about 2 inches or so, we made the most of it… got the shovels out and the three of us were “digging” up the driveway… when all was said and done i shovelled the driveway at least three times thanks to the littles following behind me taking shovels full of snow and replacing the missing snow… those boys… i got them back though when we took a sled ride around the house and i dumped them both into the snow…

NOW KIDS PAY ATTENTION TODAY’S LESSON IS…

We also dodged a bullet yesterday in regards to the leadership of our Sunday School class… the teacher/leader who had been in charge of our class had moved back in September… we’d been doing that Love and Respect thing for a while and more recently, we were searching for a permanent teacher… and we got to the ultimate low this week… if it weren’t for some fast talking and reasoning, it might have gotten so bad that i would’ve volunteered to lead the class… and since you don’t know me in person, you may not think that’s such a bad thing, but even if i do have interesting things to talk about once in a while, public speaking is not my forte and a lot of it probably would get me into even more trouble with my church than i’m already in…

WHAT THE &*&(*& DO WE (K)NOW?

Also noteworthy was the occassional and recurring throbbing of a cracked temporary crown courtesy of my local agent of Lucifer… yeah, i survived and i was numb for most of the treatment this time, but dude cracked the crown and just shoved it back into place and now, the nerve is still getting shots of air thanks to its new window… great… most of the time it’s fine, but last night i woke up several times and couldn’t get back to sleep… naturally, as i lay there in bed not sleeping i decided to ponder Quantum Physics… i know i’m strange, but to be fair, i watched What the Bleep Do We Know? not too long ago and it got me thinking… okay, i suppose that doesn’t help my strangeness… anyway, i think it was pretty interesting… that’s for perhaps another time though… (or perhaps i’m simultaneously posting about that and everything else that will ever cross my mind right this moment…)

GOTTA GET THAT PAPER, YO

anyway, today, i’m back at work having faithfully trudged through the blizzard (all two inches of it) and made my way into the office… i’m ever so behind on my writing assignments again… and that’s not really too good since i’m trying to sell myself more and more in the coming months… yep, as it turns out, it looks like the ole barrY gambiT needs a better cash flow ratio… seems like my mortgage payment is taking a significant jump later this year and i need to get ready for it… so i’m campaigning and pulling any strings i find dangling…

BIG (LINK) PIMPIN’

speaking of campaigning, i interviewed Dale Thompson from Bride over at CMCentral… i was kind of told not to post this on CMC, but i did it anyway… i guess it kind of makes me a rebel, but i felt like it was worth posting… it’s an interesting read for sure… also over there is the traditional “Our Favorites” piece that lists staff picks for the past year… coming later this week is Left to Write, an interview with Eric Owyoung of Future of Forestry, and plenty of reviews… in the near future, “Your Favorites” (for those who participated in the survey), RunDown on Books…

at theTRu, i’ve begun the 2oo6 Year in Re:TRu series with part one of three in the Year End Playlist… coming soon is a slew of lists and other such nonsense… i’ve also interviewed TobyMac and Jackson Waters, with scheduled times coming up for John Reuben and Relient K… all in a month’s work… well, i need to go get something completed before close of business…

currently listening to:

Mars Ill – Old Ironsides
Lifesavas – Gutterfly
Robert Randolph & The Family Band – Colorblind
The Roots – Game Theory
Future of Forestry – Twilight
Matt Wertz – Everything In Between
Bride – Skin for Skin
Shaun Groves – One Night in Knoxville

keeping an eye out…

peace… love… bdg…
