Now, I’ve written a time or two about Being Scott Malkinson, for which I thought I had to have another appointment to get my prescriptions refilled, but this is not the case and the experience at the Walmart Pharmacy turned today around.
Yesterday, a colleague at work lost a sibling (something I understand well), and her absence at lunch led to a discussion about loss. We explored grief and reminisced about a film by Seth MacFarlane, ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’
“But let all who take refuge in you rejoice;
let them ever sing for joy, (Psalms 5:11-12)
and spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may exult in you.
For you bless the righteous, O LORD;
you cover him with favor as with a shield.”

For me, Bruce Springsteen will never be as boss as the soundtrack to Digimon: The Movie, a film whose writer retained the rights to the story and made Summer Wars; the same thing happened with Never Say Never Again whose is plot basically identical to Thunderball. In both films, actions online almost cause nuclear annihilation.
“Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues with injustice. (Proverbs 16:8)”

“Kim Jong Un calls Trump ‘mentally deranged’ and a ‘dotard,’ did the boomy booms blow up all your wordy word books?”
Tuesday’s “International Talk Like a Pirate Day,” when I was visibly lollygagging (I was not moving with any particular sense of urgency) which led to a discussion.
Fortunately, I already realized this from ‘Star Trek: Voyager’ earlier on BBC America; a lack of discipline and focus is really not befitting of my new position, so I need to conduct myself with purpose.
“Love bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things and endures all things.
Love never ends. (1 Corinthians 13:7-8)
As for prophecies, they will pass away;
as for tongues, they will cease;
as for knowledge, it will pass away.”

Rainbow Dash: What’s the matter, kid?
“‘Basically what we have here is a dreamer. Somebody out of touch with reality,’ but the truth is in the eye the beholder, ‘When she jumped, she probably thought she’d fly,’” and I have disgust, Clinton, enough so “White People Renovating Houses,” new South Park, was what got me to stop.
“For where two or three are gathered in my name,
there am I among them. (Matthew 18:20)”

“Busy Saturday? Let’s get something to eat; I’m off at 3 tomorrow, your choice, my treat; Think about it and get back to me when you decide,” entreated Bennigan.
After the buffet, we watched “SmurfVlogs™ | ‘My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic’ Season 2 Finale | Episode 22, 23, 2…,” and You should watch ‘Restaurant to Another World’ with me!
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth,
where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. (Matthew 6:19-21)
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

The event, for which an initial post was made two weeks ago, was Laser Rangers last night. In attendance were two winners of the Hugo award, of whom one contributed to Wikipedia.

Medical Corps Major: [Major takes cigarette] How does he explain that?
“In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. (1 John 4:10-11)”

‘Forbidden Planet (1956)’
Commander John J. Adams: Monsters from the subconscious. Of course. That’s what Doc meant. Morbius. The big machine, 8,000 miles of klystron relays, enough power for a whole population of creative geniuses, operated by remote control. Morbius, operated by the electromagnetic impulses of individual Krell brains.
Dr. Edward Morbius: To what purpose?
Commander John J. Adams: And so those mindless beasts of the subconscious had access to a machine that could never be shut down. The secret devil of every soul on the planet all set free at once to loot and maim. And take revenge, Morbius, and kill!
Dr. Edward Morbius: My poor Krell. After a million years of shining sanity, they could hardly have understood what power was destroying them.

This time, I was asked to come up with a goal for myself and one for my supervisor, “according to our new arrival, life is more than mere survival?”
“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he dies, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?’ (John 11:25-26)”
