The Great Downtime of March 2019

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

The Great Downtime of March 2019

Post by TNLawPiper » Tue Mar 12, 2019 3:13 pm

What did you do for the roughly 18 hours we were without our beloved CPS?

I drove to Oklahoma City and brought peace to the warring factions led by UncleBob and Tuttle. You may thank me later as you read the no-longer-controversial CPS.

I played Pokémon Go and found a shiny Machop. Also battled in two raids with friends.

I saw Blues Traveler last night. They were late getting onstage so I could only stay for three songs since I had to work today.

I sat here with a vacant expression on my face and clicked on the CPS bookmark every three seconds. You know, the usual.

I tend to find the doctrinal books often more helpful in devotion than the devotional books.... I believe that many who find that "nothing happens" when they sit down, or kneel down, to a book of devotion, would find that the heart sings unbidden while they are working their way through a rough bit of theology with a pipe in their teeth and a pencil in their hand.

Yes. It's the latest and greatest. A dachshund pipe.

It'll be a while before it's house trained.

I honestly never anticipated this conversation occurring on CPS, but I can’t say I am opposed to it.

I just learned about "shinies" the other day. I've transferred a bunch of them, also transferred the other kind, cant remember the name of them AT the moment.

..anyhoo, to answer the question. I rode my moped about, I watched Netflix, I worked, ate, slept, drove my automobile, confronted a vagrant parked out front of my house, read various news stories, smoked, had different conversations with various people, went for several walks, prepared some chicken thighs on the Traeger, did dishes, showered, changed several Clocks, I could on and on but I'm guessing anybody reading this prolly quit reading it already.
