path of a Lightning Bolt

Last week, I was watching Top Gear and found out this week I was watching the last episode is in this current season, so an indie pop song from a Mini commercial inspires the title of this post.

The One Thing about ‘Climate Change’ That’s Always Bothered Me…
Be careful, Dr. Who Joins the March For Science in London, your love of science looks a lot like religion: The Original Earth Day

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart,
and you will find rest for your souls. (Matthew 11:28-30)
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

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,
so a McDouble® is one dollar today / There‘s something out there / I can’t resist:

“‘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

Whirlwind weekend 035

Great news, your federal return was accepted by the IRS, yet their correspondence makes me feel, “The Income Tax Basically Implies that Government Owns You.”

Monday morning I finally copied some music to my smartphone,
and many songs are from Rhema and Integrity Music,
which reminds me of my mother;
there were literally no words Easter Sunday,
What We Lost When We Lost Our Hymnals.”

“Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. (Philippians 2:5-8)”

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.”

Every Light in the House is On

Tuesday, I thought I was going to disappoint some friends this coming weekend but to my surprise, this weekend was filled with many friendships, at least three.

First was Ronni (I am going to pass your business cards to co-workers, I swear), to whom I gave a ride to Desoto on Friday, whose birthday was Saturday, which we celebrated Sunday at Red Robin Gourmet Burgers.

I thought I would be disappointing Big Joe, who held a housewarming party yesterday night, where I could not be because I was seeing Skull Island: Rise of King Kong with Bennigan.

This was no issue when I went to pick up Ronni, Big Joe greeted me warmly and gave a well-rehearsed and well-presented tour of the house.

The basement is his space with room to display his posters, collections (swords, blades, and knives), and collectibles (Batman and Hot Wheels).

The backyard continues to be an ongoing project; recent rains delay planting in the garden beds, but weeding has been easier, and newly installed window screens on a building in November show progress.

I don’t know but I’ve been told Fireball and Apple Pie Piehole Whiskey make Cards Against Humanity a fun drinking game.

Bennigan and I saw Kong: Skull Island and were blown away: Man of Steel beats Avengers. Later, we hung out at Bennigan’s house for a little bit to watch new My Hero Academia, Attack on Titan, and Saga of Tanya the Evil.

I have to confess I did Tuesday, “Backdating’s not a pretty picture. I don’t like doing it!” and updated Life is a Highway, Don’t Think I Don’t Think about It 005, News of the World 085, and This is why we can’t have nice Things.

“I have stored up your word in my heart,
that I might not sin against you. (Psalms 119:11)”

Life is a Highway

Two versions of this song exist,
one from the soundtrack to Cars,
and another that plays on the radio.

Would you be willing to get me to Desoto? I was. I just had put off a couple errands until Friday, and I accomplished one, so that is something. I left ruts where I pulled over to make a call.

“fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed,
for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10)”

I took 83rd Street East and I missed, of course, the turn for Kill Creek Road, but I visited a McDonald’s where a former coworker from Arby’s was pulling away (I-I could both hear and see her car), and I was greeted at the pickup window by former manager from Arby’s, who told me Scott had passed away from an embolism and wished she had heard when the service had been.

Don’t Think I Don’t Think about It 005

“Turn away from evil and do good; so shall you dwell forever.

I had to work Friday night, so I was not able to attend, “Local benefit for veterans with PTSD goes on, despite organizer taking own life

For the LORD loves justice; he will not forsake his saints.
They are preserved forever, (Psalms 37:27-29)
but the children of the wicked shall be cut off.

“Blessed are those who mourn,
for they shall be comforted. (Matthew 5:4)”

The righteous shall inherit the land and dwell upon it forever.”
