Absolutely Useless Facts About Yourself, No One Cares About

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

Weird noises behind us at church this morning. A visitor, with some intellectual disabilities, stashed an old school fart machine in one of the pews, and then ran away to peer around the corner and giggle with the remote in his hand. During the meet and greet time he also tried passing out fake gum and came up to me and asked, "Do you want a piece of gum, Mike?" I've never met nor seen the man before. 8O

You're a long way away from Ajo, Thom. You should feel complimented.

We have an ugly sweater contest. Why yes, I did print out the logo and affix it with binder clips to my plain, green sweater.

I am so gonna win. And get written up.

I hate those little white spiders that blend into the ceiling.

Oh yeah, and I got so cold last night sitting in my dining room that I started having muscle cramps all over my body. I haven't had that happen since I was a kid.

I cannot find the interwebs place where I previously designed and then they made & mailed me my single decade rosary.

It was an easy to use site.

As I searched I did find this. I like it quite a bit.

I just got a phone call telling me that my car repairs will be $500. Will be taking it back in during Jan 2018 for another $1300 worth of work. At least it's paid off.

Cool crucifix. Very nice. I always wanted a rosary with the Anchor Crucifix. Never did it though. Always had a serviceable one in rotation.

Good luck on your quest. Remember to check bead size this time!

I think it's an unwritten law that something expensive always breaks around the holidays. Our list keeps growing, too.

My wife is teaching my four year old to play Domo Arigato, Mister Roboto on our piano. Part of me is laughing and the other part is contemplating moidur.

Mrs. UB found her Christmas present: an 8 mm projector. She is looking at 8 mm movies including The Mummy and The Deadly Mantis. She is a happy camper!

Thread fail alert, but I don’t know where else to put this . . .

Just got off the phone with our kids.
They’ve decided to say the heck with work.

It’s Christmas!

They’re driving down from Oregon with our grandkids.
Mrs. DP and I are doing the happy dance.

This deserves a chorus of dancing Chile’s!

I have noticed over the last few years that I have started to turn my body away from people in superior positions when having conversations. Peers and subordinates I will face straight on, but I find myself turning about 5 degrees to the left when speaking to 'higher ups'. Subconsciously attempting to run away?

Forgot my car on the street out front last night. Got a ticket for parking on a snow route. There's no snow to move :(
