My 1:00 tutoring gig didn't show and I have another at 3:00, so I'm just sitting here bouncing between glaring at noisy people and browsing CPS. Not that you care.
Correct. I do not.
I'd be disappointed otherwise.

Depends on where you're sitting. If it were at the Ale House I'd care a Metric $#*7 ton. If not: No Cares. No Feels.

I haven't had a beer in a long time. I feel like having some Leffe Brown Ale. I think I'll go get some.

Apparently the abundant life is only for some. 5 years of answered prayer means $6 in cash the week before our baby is born.
There's a church in my town called Abundant Life. I have no idea what denomination they are or what they believe and a look at their website provides no clues that I can find. They've grown to be a mega church. Cops are needed to direct traffic around there on Sunday mornings. My friend Wayne had drifted away from the church before he died last year. His daughter goes to Abundant Life so Wayne's funeral service was held in one of their side-sanctuary's. The young preacherman would get himself so whipped up that he'd start yelling. Then he'd calm down and start building up again. It was crazy. Our rich friend Tim flew in from Chicago for the funeral . We all met each other 20-some years ago at St Paul's Episcopal church and, though none of us attend that church now, we've stayed close. Tim said "If I'd known I was going to be yelled at I would've stayed home."
I remember the church I grew up in, once had an "Abundant Life Campaign". A special emphasis of some sort, I don't exactly remember.
The reference is to John 10:10, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly." If we take Jesus to mean that we have abundant life in terms of riches and temporal happiness, then Jesus is plainly wrong. If we understand his statement in light of his overall teaching, he couldn't be more correct.
I don't even get the benefit spiritual abundance.

Cleon is still "Brother of the Briar" after 8 years.
I respectfully appeal to the "Hat Cats" to rectify this.

Up until this weekend I hadn't smoke in a while because of my sinus problem. I tried two small bowls of VA and had no ill effects. That is all.

HEY. HEY! I CARE.

Now you listen to me. We are still within the Box Pass Time and Space Continuum. Can I get a witness from a reader that doesn't care over here, please?

Therefore, I can by contractual agreement and approval, send you pie.

Thou shalt PM me your snail mail addy. No shenanigans! No PO Box in Canada. I know JimScreamingMonekyVHs addy by heart, jesters too. But I can get you jesters visa if you need it. Less than $80, I don't need receipts. Can you believe that option? jesters got a serious doomazzz for a financial attorney. Anyway.

PIE, DAMMIT! I MUST SEND YOU PIE!!!!!!

Got to hang with the 8 y.o. grandson today. His flag football practice was a washout so we went to Menards to pick up some supplies I need for the house. That's sort of our thing. We went exploring on their mezzanine this evening and we were the only customers up there poking around all the off-season merchandise and bulky cabinets and appliances. We had so much fun, you'd have thought we'd stumbled on to a lost cave. He bragged on himself over his last football game, an interception and two 50-yard runs, and I just ate it up. The we hit our favorite Mexican joint (the one with free queso, he swears it's the Mexican Caf because the 'e' is silent) and he told me all about Minecraft over dinner. He said "It's easy Papa!" but I pretended to get lost as he was rambling on so he'd have to slow down and give me detailed explanations of all the stuff you can do. This is the best job ever.
