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.”


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,”

I am already beginning to forget the dreams from last night; one was like the ending of an episode or a movie.
“Light it, blow it out, and tap the golden cylinder three times,” replied the female child.
“In the next three seconds, to grant him eternal rest, which was more than life ever gave to Dana Plato,” said the villainess.
I was there, watching; the door to the secret chamber was not closing fast enough; the boy from Jurassic Park had magically become a golden phoenix, which looked like Terrorsaur from Beast Wars, and bit down on my right shoulder which is sore.

In the second dream, I would not let myself hear what my mother was saying because I could not get around how she could be living. There is to be pizza tonight at our team meeting.

An unexpected musical Journey, (there It Is)

“Oh, thank God! You have not finally really done it,” usually 94.9 KCMO and KC 102.1  change their formats by now and they had already been playing holiday music for ten days by this time last year.

With the preceding, one can understand my relief to hear “Band On The Run” as I left work (94.9 plays two songs in a row each hour for Beatles’ Wednesdays), which was followed by “1999,” a recorded announcer who introduced “another 50-minute Christmas music marathon,” appropriately before “No Satisfaction,” and I was like, “Ha, denied!”

Barely Breathing” preceded a blast of Eurobeat from my current mix CD, my ride home concluded with “Come Together” covered by Gary Clark Jr on X105.1 KC.

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. (James 4:7)
Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

I don’t know where, my Homies

I don’t know where my soul is (soul is) / I don’t know where my home is /

By the time I got to work this afternoon, today was not going well, and I-I was right because I forgot something I always have to have for work, so I called in to call it a day.

I briefly had the ambition to clean but my resolution dissolved after the center desk drawer, and I am relenting being unfriended possibly in response to my blog post and no idea by whom.

“For those whom he foreknew, (Romans 8:29) he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.”

I rescheduled with Bennigan, and watched NEW GAME!, Kino’s Journeythe Beautiful Worldthe Animated SeriesFood Wars! Shokugeki no Soma with Josh on Sunday.

…Ready For It?

As I was leaving work Tuesday night, I heard a song by Taylor Swift whose title is shared with this post (partly sounded like Kesha to be redeemed by some UKF Dubstep). I wasn’t sure if I was going to get a chance to nap before I return to work Wednesday and since I’d been awake since 10 that morning and went to bed at 4 in the morning, I could certainly use one.

From the medical professional I’ve been told bronchitis is viral and will pass within 3 weeks, if not it could become pneumonia, so I’m taking this seriously.

Wednesday night, I went home sick and Delsym.

“I appeal to you, therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God,
to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, (Romans 12:1)
holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.”
