Keeping up the Habit 055

For three days last week, I went to bed at four o’clock in the morning,
which was okay for the first day; however, combined with whatever medicine my mind becomes clouded and foggy and my work suffers. so I took nothing on Sunday.

“Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:9-11)”

“Good part, Kup! Tell Swoop good part!”

Though said many times many ways, I continue to find particularly repugnant those who seek to use a disaster to speak about climate change, this time a governor who prioritized High-Speed Rail over fixing infrastructure:

Southern California’s fire devastation is ‘the new normal,’ Gov. Brown says

“And now, little children, abide in him, so that when he appears we may have confidence and not shrink from him in shame at his coming. (1 John 2:28)”

Gamble Rumble

Honestly, I was worried about changing policies at work about sick leave, so I can no longer sleep this morning ahead of overtime today; I bought an “Initial D Ugly Sweater,” for “next Friday… Ugly Sweater Day,” since my colleagues tell me my sweaters flatter me.

Mentioning this allows me to segue into “Gamble Rumble,” my favorite song at the moment — from ‘Initial D: Best Song Collection 1998-2004,’ this Eurobeat is somewhere between “‘Perfect Strangers’ Original Theme” and “‘Doc Hollywood’ Theme Song” and first heard in ‘Initial D: Third Stage,’ and is the first track on my current mix CD.

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before he endured the cross, despising the shame, (Hebrews 12:1-2) and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.”

A Bad Reflection on You, Part 2

Last night, before the memorandum was distributed, its subject matter was being discussed, and I was enjoying myself until I looked over my right shoulder.

A look from you and I would fall from grace / And that would wipe
the smile right off my face”

She appeared stern to me, so I said, “Have a pleasant tomorrow,” and I wasn’t sure things were okay until she replied, “You, too.”

Humor vampirism 033

My friend, with whom I became friends when he made me an admin of his Pony page, also added me to a group for Rooster Teeth, an animation studio which produced Red vs Blue and RWBY among others. My friend is not the author of the following note.

Thankfully, someone in the thread explained the initialism M.D.B. in plain language; a post where one is given a hypothetical situation wherein one is offered a Million Dollars But one must tolerate an undesirable condition or situation as part of the wager:

“IMPORTANT ADMIN MDB POST RULING, PLEASE READ

Hey folks! To add to the post Gavin made, I just want to shed a little more light on the issue of the MDB posts.

Some of you will remember a while ago we had an issue arise where people were upset with lewd RWBY posts. We ended up with a divided community and had an overwhelming amount of people messaging us saying they were uncomfortable with the posts and that they were making them no longer wish to participate in the group. This is obviously something we never, ever want to be the case, and we ended up having to make a very hard ruling to fix the issue. We’re in a similar situation now.

Every year when a new season of MDB starts, scenario posts tend to flood the group. These are all well and good, and we 100% support this kind of community-building activity. However, there is an immense issue with them considering Facebook’s algorithm for relevant posts. Basically, the most active posts will be the posts that are featured most and have an overwhelmingly higher chance to be featured outside of the group. This can cause MDB posts to appear incredibly spammy and makes it so that other content doesn’t appear as often. This is a shortcoming on Facebook’s part really, but it’s, unfortunately, one we have to deal with as part of the platform.

To try and rectify this, I’ll be making a master post for all MDB content moving forward. It will be the stickied post for the duration of this season of MDB, and we ask that any scenarios you would like to present to the group be posted on that post. We will be deleting any MDB content posted outside of that post, and I will do my best to try to copy/paste scenarios posted outside of that post to the comments of the master post for discussion, and tag the original poster.

Thank you all so much for your fantastic feedback and criticisms. Please never hesitate to message me with questions, and have a fantastic day!

Lonely is the Knight, Part Five

“Oh, no, Lois. That’s the beauty of part 5.
It’s so intense it jumps right over parts 3 and 4.
Clock is ticking, ‘40-Year-Old Virgin.’ Keep it together.”

“Take my words and read them every day / Keep them close by, don’t you let them fade away”

“WORDS: They hold so much power. Make your words your superpower and use them for good. 🤨🧐🤔

Speak a kind or encouraging word (or lots of them) to someone today, you may just tip the scale and make their day go from bad/blah/ok to amazing. It takes you only a short time to speak the words but the impact of positive words on the listener can make a lasting positive impression.

Go out there today and love, encourage and speak light into someone’s darkness. 🤗”

“Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord,
nor of me his prisoner, (2 Timothy 1:8-9)
but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God,
who saved us and called us to a holy calling,
not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace,
which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began,”
