Herding Cats July 26, 2011

I love this commercial.  It sums up my life both as a dad and a church planter (Crosstown peeps, no need to take offense – cats can also be a lot of fun).

It seems like there are all of these important things that need to get done, but they all seem to running off in different directions.  Time spent chasing down one is time spent ignoring another.

But I wouldn’t want it any other way.  “It ain’t an easy job.  But when you bring a herd into town and you ain’t lost a one of ’em.  There ain’t a feeling like it in the world.”


Are you scared of Christmas? September 14, 2010

A local radio station has started a countdown for Christmas.  Now I love Christmas just as much as the next guy (well, actually a whole lot more than the next guy – especially if that guy happens to be Jewish or Muslim), but aren’t Christmas countdowns in September a bit ridiculous.

So what’s so scary about Christmas.  Well, there’s lots to be scared of, as you can tell from the picture.  First of all, it’s the only time of year when people expect you to be nice to them.  How scary is that expectation!  No way I can be nice to everyone for a month straight.

Secondly, there is gift giving.  As Sheldon Cooper so aptly puts it “You haven’t given me a gift, you’ve given me an obligation.”  No wonder this baby is scared.  What is Santa going to expect of him?

I leave you with this further explanation and demonstration of finding the proper gift.

My conversation with Payton this week:

Payton: “Dad, I think Papa is a vampire.”

Me: “What? Why do you think that?”

Payton: “When we were at church last week, they had Jesus blood in a cup and Papa drank it!”

This video is great satire.  It’s funny but a little sad.

This is minor league baseball at its best.  Will Ferrell pitched for a minor league team last week under a pseudonym.  Great idea – the guys in marketing need a raise.

You can read the article and see more video here.

The day the world stood still April 15, 2010

Most of you are probably aware of my love(read obsession) for Chick-Fil-A.  If not, the video below will inform you.

But I had a tragic experience on Tuesday.  Carey and I went for a lunch date to Chick-Fil-A.  Everything was going so well.  The waffle fries were the right amount of crispy, the sandwich was the right amount of tender.  Then I took a long swallow of the sweet tea I’d spent the whole morning thinking about.  Imagine my horror when a strange, tangy presence invaded my palette.  The tea was awful.  I was so shocked, I couldn’t even bring myself to leave the table to tell the manager.  I’d never had an experience like this.  I poured it out and drank a Dr. Pepper.  It was a good Dr. Pepper.  But it wasn’t the same and my lunch was marred.

All that said, I can’t wait to go back next week.  Surely I should have expected that out of 500 visits, one would fail to live up to my high expectations.  I know deep down that Chick-Fil-A will redeem itself.  My mouth will be blessed with the taste of sweet tea, and I’ll sing once more.

This clip has been a source of laughter for Carey and me over the last 3 months.  Some crazy church planters from Toronto introduced us to Jim and his comedy.  We stayed up late one night with our Canadian friends (during our missionary commissioning week) watching all of the Jim Gaffigan clips we could find on YouTube.  I find myself singing the Hot Pocket jingle at random times and it always makes me happy.  Enjoy.

If you’ve heard the song “I Will Be Here” a hundred times at weddings like I have, then this version is really refreshing.

My Nemesis May 8, 2009

Do you have a nemesis?  If not, you won’t realize how painful it is to lose your nemesis.  A nemesis brings purpose to your life and gives you someone to strive against each and every day.  This 8 minute video will take you through the pain of losing a nemesis and then the joy of getting them back.

There are so many amazing quotes plus the 2 songs are priceless.

“We’re not enemies, just really bad friends.”

“We just instantly disliked each other.”

“It’s not that I don’t hate you anymore, I do.  I just think it’s time for us to take a break and start fighting other people.”

“If you give me another chance I promise to hurt you in the right way.”
