Where have you been? Where are you going? And why?

The Dull Moments

My blog description above mentions the dull moments of life being a topic. I realize I haven’t done a great job of including those. So here we go.

The weather outside decided to finally turn cold for winter, making it harder to get out of bed each morning. When I finally did today, 40 minutes after my first alarm, I was cold. Because my Nick Saban-like NFL salary of $4.5 million dollars hasn’t come in the mail yet, I do not have one of those showers that sprays you from 6 different angles, assuring that every inch of the body is kept warm for every second of the shower. So, probably like you, I am forced to move around in effort to stay warm. I discovered that keeping my head under the hot water is strategically the best way to stay warm.

Once dressed for work, I ate cereal. The generic brand. It was $0.75 cheaper that the name brand. The milk is halfway gone, if you were wondering. Oh wait, that sounded negative. The milk jug is half-full. It’s also the generic brand.

The drive to work was all about sports talk. Nick Saban again. What an example of integrity for the players he will coach. Huh.

I talked so much at work that my throat hurt. I like talking to you now because you don’t require my voice. It is resting.

Once home, I sat on the couch. Tired and bored. Then I realized it’s Thursday. Do you know what that means!!!???? The Office is on tonight. I love The Office. Brilliant. I haven’t laughed so hard since Dumb and Dumber. I checked and found that Dwight K. Schrute has a blog. Crap. Because I am tiring my fingers with you, I missed the first 5 minutes of the show. Here’s Dwight’s blog. Gotta go.

    I must thank you for the comment on my own blog. I moved to blogger from a social networking site ( and none of my friends seem to have followed me. It’s nice to get a comment.

    I don’t pretend that I will complete these, but it is a matter of faith to continue them. The older we get, the more we tend to get jaded and realize that these repetitive resolutions never achieve their perfect end. But, if we aim to be Christ-like (and given your reading list, I’m inclined to say you do), we must remember something about God:

    He is terribly repetitive. So many hand-made daisies and daffodils…the same. The sun rises every day. How dull and repetitive. But a small child goes on a roller coaster to come off and say “Again!” And he gets the same joy over and over again, even when his father thought the first one was quite enough.

    “It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we.” -G.K. Chesterton

    I love The Office. I received the first two seasons on DVD. I am waiting for the third one to come out before watching anymore, because I do not want anything to be spoiled for me. It’s a tough wait, though. I heard yesterday’s was hilarious.

    Ah, hark! The repetitive cycles of life, the repetitive cycles of history. Solomon noticed this. The image of the child on the roller-coaster is very touching. And G.K. Chesterton. Gotta love his works.

    Darker than Silence, if you haven’t watched any of the third season, you are in for a treat, especially the Christmas episode.

    HEY BRO! Man it was really good to hear from you on my blog. Man I’m sorry I’m so bad at keeping up, it’s not an accurate reflection of my thoughts about and for you and Shannon…everytime I attend a men’s gathering here in K-town I think of you.

    THE OFFICE ROCKS! Tracie and I are on the fourth disk of season two (we finished the third one last night).

    I look forward to looking through things here (on your blog) and catching up on your life. You are a good man Luke, hopefully we can talk over coffee some time soon.

    Great to hear from you Ted! I would enjoy that cup of coffee greatly. Your kids are getting so big. From the looks of the FBC website, things seem to be going well for you guys. Make sure you use your blog to update me on all the Larger Story movies I need to see.
