Journey to happy Rock

I didn’t budget for Planet Comicon and I dislike crowds and situation with parking downtown (you have to pay money and you have to walk quite a distance) Thankfully, a friend through whom I can live vicariously is operating a booth there.

I always say my excuses will outlive me.

I forgot that I had agreed to wake up early and miss the live broadcast of Pony to drive Ronni to the Northland, specifically Gladstone, today, so I’m too tired to make the Asian Cultural Festival like I said I would to Josh.

“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it. (Isaiah 55:10-11)”

This season of Pony is giving us everything we could want, and I could emphasize individually with each character in “Rock Solid Friendship” today.

The Shipping News: Humor vampirism 030

“See, it’s difficult in a business situation, there’s an invisible line, even if you are attracted to someone,” and I have rules; I don’t accept friend requests from coworkers or ask them out. Yes, if she’s in a different department, but that was twelve years ago and then I didn’t ask out a coworker until she left the job.

“because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth, one confesses and is saved. (Romans 10:9-10)”

Curmudgeon 101

Tree trimming, inquiry from Dell, and other noises are making it impossible to return to sleep this morning so I may have to take Extreme Measures, meaning caffeine, and its most potent an absorbable form – – coffee

You’re calling because you’re concerned about my privacy and because someone has allegedly been accessing my email from Texas … Paris, Texas?
I am way too tired for this; I said they could call me back in an hour, so I was going to go back to bed for an hour, which I tried but realized that was going to be futile, and I went to Hurricane Allie’s instead, and rejected the call on my mobile.

“No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation, he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. (1 Corinthians 10:13)”

Celebratory note 064

For two and a half weeks while her new position with a different company was on hold, our supervisor returned, but yesterday was officially her last day.

A woman of her word, she was caring, confident, genuine and led our team very well. The thing I will remember most, however, is when I would be leaving for the day and I would tell her humorous riddle which was so terrible she would simply say, “Goodbye, Chris!”

“Seek the LORD while he may be found; call upon him while he is near;
let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts;
let him return to the LORD, that he may have compassion on him,
and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. (Isaiah 55:6-7)”

These Dreams by Heart

Last night, or this morning, whenever I was last asleep, I had these repeating dreams one involved a large group gathering with a friend since elementary school and food (especially ham), and in the other I was trying to write some speech for a class and needed a video on the same cassette as a recording of an episode of ‘Walker Texas Ranger’, “The Road to Black Bayou

Thanks, but the Kansas City Royals had a double-play yesterday,

“‘Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.’
For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved,
but the one whom the Lord commends. (2 Corinthians 10:17-18)”

Of course, before I left this morning, I asked my father if he wanted a McDouble. He said no, but thank you. Friday is when they collect trash in our neighborhood, so I also asked if I had woke him up when I was taking out the trash last Friday morning.

“I don’t know,” he continued, “that was a long time ago, Chris.”

Being Scott Malkinson, I can only dream, “I drank Starbucks’ Unicorn Frappuccino and now I sparkle,” analogous to New Girl and truth about her to which I have resigned myself— she was wearing her hair down yesterday then, with rubber bands she found at work, had some trouble to put it up into a ponytail.

I said to her, “There’s no hairstyle you can’t make work,” or something similar— I’ll be damned.

“Thank you,” she replied, “but these bands are going to hurt like hell when they have to come out.”

Truly, women go through such work for the sake of beauty, and I really fail to appreciate.

Would have been weird if I had made a status update without context

Tippin’s Gourmet Pies, Easter

“How does it feel to be sixty-six today?” I asked my father on his birthday.

“I’m tired,” he replied, “time for my mid-afternoon nap.”

We have all had a full day. I attended Easter service like I promised, and I misunderstood when my father and sister said they were going to pick up something from Hen House Market, so I got myself something from Walmart Neighborhood Market.

Ronni called me, and we ran some errands this afternoon ahead of her family gathering. The conversation with my father was after I returned home.

Why Do Some Americans Admire Putin?” an article from Intellectual Takeout got me to think about Epic Rap Battles of History, so I commented the relevant episode and watched several more, which promptly delayed this post.

Josh is working with a filming crew today, yet I suppose I could watch some anime myself, except I have the premieres of Doctor Who and Top Gear to watch from the DVR.

“Blessed are the peacemakers, (Matthew 5:9)
for they shall be called sons of God.”
