my work computer is fried and has been on the fritz most of the week. It's at the doctor for some repair work to the fried motherboard and processor. I usually blog from work.

Much like my computer, I have been to the doctor this week and found out I also need some repair work performed. I have kinda had a slight bulge on my stomach for a few weeks now. I can hear all of you laughing and saying that I've had it a bulge for a lot longer. Seriously, It turns out I have a epigastric hernia(this is not a picture of me, my breasts are much smaller) and will need surgery. It is scheduled for the morning of November 9th. Most probably I will be able to go home, but may have to stay overnight. It will be laproscopic surgery, which is better for recovery time. I guess most folks would say that it's not a serious surgery, but any surgery is seriouys when your the one who will be wearing the gown laying on the gurney. I would appreciate your prayers

being sick...


I took some much needed time off Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Monday was great! I slept in for the first time in about six months. Lydia is on fall break so we really got to just hang out a bit. Tuesday I woke up with an intense burning in my throat. I assumed it was just my allergies kicking up. I didn't think much about it as dad and I shopped for new cell phones. Wednesday morning, I had an appointment with my new doctor. I'm ok...For the most part. As the day wore on, I continued to feel worse. By church time I was miserable, but I went and had choir practice anyway. This morning I have a full blown cold and I'm so miserable I could SCREAM. I have a lot of work to do today and tomorrow since I took off the first off the week, so I can't really go home. I would rather break a bone than have a runny nose.

Oh BTW I found the phone I wanted. It's an LG vx8100. very cool

...whatever I feel like, gosh!

Ok I admit it's been a little while since I posted, but I've been super busy. Our church has been in revival and of course I've had to be at church every waking hour for the last several days. Next week I'm taking a few days off, but it won't be much fun cause I got to go the doctor. I have been one of the millions of uninsured American for the last several years. Luckily no major illnesses happened and the lord prevented me from injuring or otherwise maiming myself. However, I'm glad to say that we have insurance now. And it's actually good insurance. Yesterday I used my insurance card for the first time. How I love amoxicillin! The endodontist thought I needed it when we finished up the root canal. Jokingly, I told Lydia the other day that I might break my arm on purpose just to see if this isn't a dream. She said that it probably wouldn't be a good idea.

This morning, I got a random call from Steve Hammond, an old BSU buddy, trying to find Dave Falkenberg. I was no help, but he called later and said he had found the found number and gave to me. Maybe I'll give him a ring. Steve seemed to be doing well. He lives in Louisville.

Anybody going to see "Elizabethtown" by famed filmmaker Cameron Crowe this weekend. I noticed in the preview that orlando bloom is wearing an Ale-8 shirt in one scene.

Dr Greenlee

During our recent trip to EKU homecoming, Lydia and I got to visit one our most favorite people. Dr. Greenlee was our choir director during the time we were in school, but He was so much more than just a teacher. He was a really great friend. He has been one of the biggest influences in my life and I constantly hear myself saying to my choir at church things he used to say. He always encouraged me by letting me know that I could make it as a professional musician if I wanted, but still supported the calling I had toward the ministry. He has profoundly affected my life in a way that few others have and I owe Him a debt of gratitude.

Famous Greenlee'isms

"hot fudge!"

"Tree's don't move"

"Let those crazies pass you by on the interstate you'll pull up right behind them at the exit"

"Put a quarter in it"

"Everyone's a quarterback. We have no second string"

laughter is good

I know I've posted cartoons from perry bible fellowship before, but this really cracked me up this morning. It's a new take on an old story.

new crowder

Hey blog type folks. Last weekend I was browsing around the iTunes store looking at what new music was available. I do this most weeks, but normally on Tuesdays. I saw where if you pre-purchased the new David Crowder Band album you got a bunch of neato extra stuff, like unreleased mixes and other fun stuff. It also included a pdf of the liner notes. Have I mentioned how much I miss reading liner notes when purchasing music online. Their brilliant marketing worked flawlessly cause I jumped on it without giving it a second thought. Tuesday when I logged into iTunes to see what's new it popped up and told me my purchase was ready to download. I normally listen to something immediately when I get it. But if I don't listen all the way through the first time, I may just listen to the first three songs over and over cause I liked them. I was busy Tuesday and didn't have the time. So today, I finally listened to the album all the way through after running it through JHymn to unlock it the files and then converting it to mp3 so it can be played through our networked TiVo's and in my player which is 10 times better than an ipoo.

The album is fabulous. This is really something, considering I don't often say that much music is great. It's just refreshing to see somebody doing something original that I actually like. Don't get me wrong, lots of people show originality, but a lot of it is original crap. Recording an album full of the sound a dry erase marker on a white board makes would be original, but who wants to listen to that. Anyway, check out the album it's good. Apparently I'm not the only one who thinks so. It was as high as #2 on iTunes, and currently sits at #4. This is pretty impressive for a "Christian" artist.

If you want a listen check them out on myspace...uh actually their space on myspace
