    HAPPY CANADA DAY!

    We have quite a few resident Canucks here, and this thread is here to celebrate what the day is aboot! It's too bad Arwen isn't around, but that's okay. We still have Descyple and Agirlandherguitar, though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IY_bhVSGKEg In all seriousness, though, Happy...

    WORST. CHRISTMAS. SONG. EVAR.

    Home. In front of computer. Type out lesson for tomorrow's Sunday School class first? Of course not. Procrastinate first. I haven't started a thread in a while. Why not? And why not flip the coin to the favorite Christmas song thread? We all have the Christmas song (or songs) that we are...

    Shoutout to the BWI Peeps! Shour's Thanksgiving Travels yet again!

    In the summer of '13, I cruised up through California with a buddy, and we stopped to have burger with CatHerder. (He'll tell you all about it. Fun times.) Last Thanksgiving, I hopped in the Miata, and got to spend some time with Catlynn, Duchess Aimee, and Grace-Like-Rain. It was awesome...

    Ugly, Wisebeardman, Tintin...beardy folks in general...

    So, I have probably gone the longest ever without shaving or trimming short, and have the thickest fu-manchu of my life. I *have* to keep it for at least a couple more weeks...but then Movember comes along. I'm thinking of actually letting it grow into a fairly long fu-manchu just to see how...

    Do you believe in romance??

    KenThomas suggested I blog this reply. Considering that I haven't written a blog in eleventy billion years, why not?

    Sometimes I wonder if I'm defective...

    ...like I'm missing a particular chip or co-processor or something. (More of a ramble than an actual thread, but you guys are more than willing to take the thing and run with it. Wisebeardman, I'll save you the trouble of posting the usual "The OP was too long, so I didn't read it," and tell...

    To die is gain...

    My pastor is currently teaching out of Philippians, which as many of you here know is a book that is dear to my heart. I felt like sharing with you some of what I was reminded of today. Phil 4:19-26 For I know that this will turn out for my deliverance [Paul and Timothy are imprisoned as they...

    Uncomfortable

    I wonder if this place has supplanted anything I ever did in Facebook or LiveJournal. I'm not certain what's off with me today. Or yesterday. It's definitely been a two day thing. You know, when you're lying in bed, and after a minute or so, you flop over...a minute later, back to the position...

    A CC Meetup Would Never Work, Blah Blah Blah! Well, I Got News For Ya...

    On Tuesday, November 26th, DuchessAimee steps off of an airplane at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. As she is collecting her bag from baggage claim, Shouryu, who is in Dallas to spend Thanksgiving with his brother's family, finds her, and greets her with a hug. Although it is nearly...

    Big changes, big blessings!

    As things have changed over the summer, mainly stemming from my colleague/roommate's marriage and relocation, I have been left in a precarious situation. The challenges at work have been well documented. If anything, those are the challenges I feel best equipped to tackle! It has been...

    How do YOU read? (NOT a poll...)

    (...because a poll is a poll, and a roll is a roll. If we don't take no polls, we don't eat no rolls. I made that up.) Someone in either the DART thread or Streams thread asked about which book in the Bible to read next. There are lots of different ways to tackle the Word of God, really, and...

    Off to Houston

    Heading out to Houston this morning; won't likely arrive before 10. But I fly back to EP Thursday evening. If you're in the area Tues, Weds, even Thurs AM, and are interested in meeting for burger (or bacon and eggs), shoot me a PM.

    If you've a minute to spare...

    ...I'd appreciate it if you could say a quick prayer for my parents, particularly for comfort for my mother. After several days of trying to treat their dog's failing kidneys, the vet has pretty much declared it a lost cause. They'll put him to sleep tomorrow, and my mother is taking it very...

    I have awesome friends

    So I'm in Lacey, WA right now with some friends, and they just took me out for one of the best days of my life. I've spent most of the day with a huge grin perma-plastered to my face. When I'm feeling down about my situation, the Lord always puts the right people around me to lift me up. We...

    Man on the Move!

    I'm going to be out and about over the next couple of weeks. If I'm in your neck of the woods, and we can make it happen, I'm up for grabbing a bite to eat, or just a drink and a round of pool or bowling or something. (I know I'm not super tight with EVERYONE on this forum, but anyone who's up...

    Sexism and Double Standards

    So, Arwen made mention in the Streams thread the concern about wanting to dress comfortably during the summer, but points out the issues that women have to face when it comes to wearing summer wear. Not wishing to break protocol in the Streams thread (no public responses), I PM'd her my...

    Always blessed

    It's really funny how we get things twisted around. I have a busy few days here. Yesterday, after work, I had to go to a banquet honoring a co-worker and close friend. Today, I had to get up early to take 130 students across town to play a concert, and then bring them back for a cookout to...
