She moves in mysterious Ways

Ahead of David impending relocation to Nebraska, I met friends at Denny’s, Ronni was the one to ask one of us to explain ‘Doctor Who,’ a rare privilege.

“After a hearty feast at Jumpin’ Catfish, we decided that the click-bait articles were either fishing for attention or jumping to conclusions. It was a good movie.”

Beware lest you say in your heart,
‘My power and the might of my hand have gotten me this wealth.’
You shall remember the LORD your God,
for it is he who gives you the power to get wealth,
that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers,
as it is this day. (Deuteronomy 8:17-18)”

Friendship is Magic: The Gathering, Part 2

Much time has passed since I last played ‘Magic: The Gathering,’ yet my friend Travis has an interest in learning the game, so elder statesman Scott has been teaching him; we all met up after I gave a ride to another friend to the bus station downtown, and hung out with Josh. We were at the restaurant a little later than usual and attracted attention from some fellow players, who just might join us in a couple weeks.

For today, a Word of the Day from Dictionary.comNoelChristmas.

“And the angel said to them, ‘Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.’ (Luke 2:10-12)”

Keeping up the Habit 061

Frequently, I complain about the other diners, yet the group of friends whom I know through Josh become disruptive or were two weeks ago Monday. I have to remind myself, “Hold Me Now” by Thompson Twins was not in Flight of the Navigator, which the family was watching Sunday, while “Lose Your Love” by Blancmange was.

nothing can be added to it, nor anything was taken from it.
God has done it so that people fear before him. (Ecclesiastes 3:14)”

Be see’in You too

“Sorry can’t hang out tonight I had to work today,” was what Josh sent to me Sunday, and I forgot to set the DVR for Roseanne, so my lone consolation was to meet our mutual friends at the Denny’s, where we caught the end of The Goldbergs and an episode from the first season of Seinfeld.

“Why are you guys laughing so hard,” reacted Scott (elder statesman, and comic-book authority), “wasn’t even that funny.”
‘Super Troopers 2’ opens on … 4/20!
“I have ‘Super Troopers’ somewhere at home,” responded Travis (who is close to my age), “haven’t seen it in a while, gotta watch it again before then. You know what’s hilarious? ‘Grandma’s Boy,’ one of my top five, all-time favorite comedies, at least of the last ten years.”
“‘Grandma’s Boy’ was funny,” agreed Scott.
“Hey Travis,” interjected Luke (who has an uncanny ability to dispense inappropriate humor, is the same age as a Taylor Swift song, and possesses a good knowledge of story structure), “‘The Walking Dead’ last night? I think they’re going to finish off at the end of this arc.”

“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!
Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, your king is coming to you;
righteous and having salvation is he,
humble and mounted on a donkey,
on a colt, the foal of a donkey. (Zechariah 9:9)”

Scott inquired, “What is that on your shirt?”
Characters from a show I like dressed as characters from a Japanese cartoon.
Bringing aggression to the great dilemma, Luke stated, “Scott really hates ‘My Little Pony,’ you know,” and on the subject of two weeks ago, “You imagined I was being sinister when I was being incompetent.”

Got to get the Bread and Milk

I’m pretty tired, but I got to get the bread and milk ahead of the storm tomorrow; I meant windshield wiper blades and socks

Perhaps the precipitation will have ceased by the time I’m supposed to go to work, but that doesn’t mean anything will be ready, “Remember, where you’re going, there are no roads,” and I have resisted going to bed thus far; I didn’t leave myself enough time to install the new wiper blades, and the windscreen was kept warm enough for it to not matter.

Before I went to the Walmart, I went to Denny’s, yet I’m going to try to ignore the people at the other table. Funny how they fell silent as soon as their pancakes arrived, while one of them was telling another “shut up,” and that’s all I’ve been screaming in my mind! “People these days don’t know where Czechoslovakia is on a map,” yeah, since those have been two separate countries for twenty-five years!

Approaching the self-checkout, a previous customer completed his story to the clerk, and I responded after he departed:

I don’t know what he’s talking about. I have no plans to help Stacey tomorrow at all. My name is Chris by the way.

“to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds,
and to put on the new self, (Ephesians 4:22-24)
created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.”

Quagmire sans Toupee

Often my blog is like a daily newspaper. In fact, yesterday was my birthday, so I should have first gone to Jazz, A Louisiana Kitchen in Kansas City, then gone to get a haircut; instead, I ended up driving around for forty-five minutes to three different places in northeastern Johnson Country and none had available parking.

Last night I went to a Denny’s. I’m not sure if I dislike these young people because I know only one in five songs with which they are singing along – – someone just used her first name as an adjective. I must concede if someone can have ‘Betty Davis’ eyes, then someone can have an ‘Emily’ smile.

“Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. (Ephesians 4:31-32)”
