Pardon me, do you have 97 seconds to spare?

12 07 2008

What can you do in 97 seconds? Well here are a few things to pass the time…

  • Pretend you’re a robot – Walk down the street with mechanical movements, adding ‘zzzzzt’ sounds with each motion. Pretending to have a motor or something. Try not to do the “Robot” dance, but we all know you will!
  • Learn blow spit bubbles – An interesting little talentless talent I picked up in the 6th grade. Gleeking was all the rage, but I couldn’t do it to save my life. So my friend Ed Winikie taught me how to blow a spit bubble! I’ve been grossing out my wife ever since I started dating her… thanks Ed!
  • Nuke a Hot Pocket – One of life’s guilty pleasures! Quick, easy, delicious, a million flavors! They’re Ramen Noodles for adults, everyone eats them but most of us don’t want to admit it.

Ok, I’m guessing you all won’t do these things with your 97 seconds… well, my sister-in-law Beth will, she’s hella cool like that! But let me give you something you can do with 97 seconds.

Just for Blog’s Sake…

30 10 2007

anberlin is in town

anberlin isn’t in town… but they will be next month! i basically wanted to post something and didn’t feel like making a new banner for the post, like i usually do! call me lazy but i’m trying to work on a logo that i have come up with nothing of value so far, so i want to get back to that…

the reason I used the anberlin banner is because i wanted to post something i read on the lead singers blog, The Modesty Writers Guild. there is a lot of good stuff on his blog, as i mentioned in a previous post. so if you are in a mood to think and really search your heart after reading his posts, head on over there!

i read this post earlier, and it really caught my attention. these emotions and feelings are normal associated with the negative. but this benediction puts them into a new perspective! these are things we all should be praying:

A Franciscan Benediction

May God bless you with discomfort
At easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships
So that you may live deep within your heart

May God bless you with anger
At injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people,
So that you may work for justice, freedom and peace.

May God bless you with tears
To shed for those who suffer pain, rejection, hunger and war,
So that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and
To turn their pain into joy.

And may God bless you with enough foolishness
To believe that you can make a difference in the world,
So that you can do what others claim cannot be done
To bring justice and kindness to all our children and the poor.
