9:12 time suck with Weird Al

I think that Weird Al is part of the reason I'm such a happy person having steeped myself in his music and been a hard core fan since I can remember first getting the Dare to Be Stupid cassette tape back one summer while on vacation at Williams Lake.

So in a way, Al helped me trade any chance of being cool enough to date in high school for a life time of positive, happy sarcasm. Thanks Al... it was so worth it.

Too many reminders... and still I miss things.

It's awesome.

Ical has reminders that pop up, and emails reminders.
Ical is linked to google calendar who sends email reminders.
My google cal and work cal are linked... and both send reminders.

You'd think I'd never forget anything having had pop ups and sometimes up to 6 email reminders...

How do you live without embracing your Hypocrisy?

I was at a Pastor's cluster meeting today and it was awesome. The trust level is developing and it was a great time of sharing both joys and heart aches (yes... Pastors have lots of heart aches...)

It made me think and feel and analyze lots of things and... in my life of hypocrisy I'm so glad that I belong to a religious system that doesn't rely on me getting it right in all ways... I love living with the grey areas and the paradox. Of course, embracing paradox might not be as catchy a title for a blog though...

But really... a blog that was all about embracing holistic truth would be really hard to maintain... constantly going back and rewording and deleting posts to get things just right... I don't know how much fun that would be.

So... Sin boldly... that is... do your best and then trust that the one who creates all things didn't expect you to get it right anyway... and trust that you are loved... and this love transforms all things.

It's easier to read that blog...

There are those that blog and those that should read blogs... sometimes as I watch the months go between posts I think that I should be one who reads the blogs... but I'm too idealistic with what I might do with this blog.

I'm thinking of a series of "Phrases that need to be retired". I was inspired by this other blog that is doing the same thing and... I think that it will help me become a better person by getting rid of certain words and phrases....

will it happen?

Who knows....
