things to do when bored

I saw a fun thing over at shlog the other day. It was a link to a little applet that lets you make a customized south park character of yourself. I've never been a south park fan, but this was kinda fun. Go here to try it for yourself

South Park Me

I also did this one, with a little help from photoshop

It's on it's way

Monday in the middle of my novocaine induced high, I ordered a new tshirt from busted tees. It should be here tomorrow. I think I might have some feminine tendencies. Let me explain. If I'm not feeling well or I'm kinda down, buying something always makes me feel better. I don't even feel ashamed of myself.

They have some great shirts. Of course most of them I would never wear in public, but they're funny.

this getting older thing... sucks

I had my much dreaded trip to the endodontist yesterday. I can hear you asking, "What's an endodontist?" He is a dentist that has gone to school longer than regular dentists and specializes in only the worst kind of pain. The Root Canal. It took forever to get me numbed up. Eventually he had to give me a big shot right in the gaping hole in my tooth. This is when I screamed and wet myself a little. After two hours of drilling, grinding, and gagging it was over. I stumbled out several hundred dollars poorer, but glad it was over. I gotta go back for some more work in two weeks. As an aside the dentist mentioned that some people lack the microbiology that causes tooth decay. You have got to be kidding me. I want to find one of these lucky idiots and punch them.

Disclaimer: Many of you may think that I am an Anti-Dentite. I am not. I appreciate the roles they fill in our society, and the holes they fill in my teeth. I just wish I didn't have to go.

funny things we say

I have always had a great fear of saying something really inapropriate or dumb while preaching. I bet this guy wishes he had chose another topic

Our time in Richmond was great. We had a wonderful time and took pictures, so check them out at flickr. We stayed with Jeff, Holly, and Bryan Prosser; our dearest friends in the world. Bryan asked if I would write about him in my blog, so here's one better. We got to see some old friends, some old teachers, and some old haunts. We stocked up on ale-8[now in twist-off].

bad news

I blog when I'm happy. Lately I've had a difficult time maintaining an acceptable level of happiness. We found out this week that Bill, my sunday school teacher and good friend, has been diagnosed with Mutiple Myeloma. It a pretty mean type of cancer of the blood that affects the bones. It has really been devastating to his wife Sally, their family and to our whole church family as well. Sally is our pianist at church and works with Lydia at DuPont Elementary too. The prognosis is not good, and the cancer has been advancing at a fierce pace. We have been praying that God would touch Bill, and that if that isn't His will that He would give peace to everyone affected. I would appreciate your prayers.

we took this a few weeks ago when we were walking in the riverpark

supreme court

I was thinking about the vacant seats on the supreme court that W is gonna be filling. I wasn't really thinking about the major impact W will have on the court, but was more wondering if new members get hazed or initiated in any way. When I joined the boy scouts, the first overnight trip we took involved an initiation ritual for me and the other new guys. I was blindfoldedand had to do some chanting and be led around by the rest of the troop and stuff. I know most of my friends in school that were a part of a frat went through hell for that stupid little pin. I was just wondering if the new justices on the supreme court get called "noob" behind their back. Maybe they become the target of practical jokes around the building. You've got to think that there is more to these folks than the public persona we see. I wonder which one of them is the most gassy? You know if a group of people are around each other for very long everyone figures out who "the farter" is. The thought of all of the justices playing jokes on the new guys really cracks me. I can just imagine seeing thomas and suitor giggling like schoolboys because they lit fire to the back of "new guys" robe, thankful they aren't the new kid on the block anymore.

actually it's not wednesday anymore.

major pain waking me up
pain meds kick in now

This is horrible. The pain is not being relived as fast as I would like.

Wednesday, September 7, 2005


I know I've been a little unfaithful lately. Sorry! It's been a busy week. and I've been kinda down. I've been working like a slave at church tyring to get the great office remodel over. Last week my knee and back were really hurting a lot. The back has returned to normal and the knee is well on it's way to full strength. One of my teeth has been hurting a lot, and I was putting it off as long as possible. I went to the dentist and he says I need a root canal. He gave me a copy of the x-ray, meds, and a referral to a root canal specialist. See for yourself. Anyway the pain is starting to subside a little. I'm no anti-dentite, but going to the dentist is one of the few things that really gets me uptight. dentists and clowns. Before you ask, Yes that's really my teeth.

I know if your like me you've probably spent lots of hours watching coverage and looking at images from the Gulf Coast wasteland. It's horrible, and I can't imagine the pain and loss so many are feeling. They are in my prayers.

Here are four pieces of good news.(1) Konfabulator, a great little app, has been bought by the fine folks at yahoo, and it is now free. (2)Todd Snider is coming to town, and I'm going to try to make the show(late saturday night and early sundays). (3) my wife is scratching my back even as I type. She's good people. (4) I'm 2% away from having the entire first season of Veronica Mars in my possesion. It's a great show, and chatt has no upn.
