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)”

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.

“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.”

Happy day of Mirth

Last weekend, new episodes of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Doctor Who and Top Gear cheered me up; they’re also new this weekend, but I really need to see some Ham Kitty at the Kick Comedy Theater.

I’ve never liked Earth Day, I can never forgive its self-aggrandizing Word of the Day from Dictionary.com – green-collar – noting or pertaining to workers, jobs, or businesses that are…

These are troubled times in the galaxy, neither of these things sits well with me since my mother and sister have passed away: today is the day my sister Kimberly was born, there’s already ads for Mother’s Day.

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
