Two Posts For The Price Of One!

Post #1 -

Watching "American Idol" I have come to realize something. There's a lot of people out there who can't sing and they show up on this show to audition. Now let's face it: I'm sure some of those poor souls actually think they can hold a tune. But most of them know they are terrible and are on the show anyway to try and get their 15 minutes of fame. Why do we crave this 15 minutes of fame? Why do we all, in our own way, climb to the top of whatever and shout out "HEY EVERYONE! LOOK AT ME!"

Meanwhile God climbs to the top of whatever and in His own way he shouts out "HEY EVERYONE! LOOK AT ME!" But you don't see God on American Idol. His shouting out is in a much sublter, more beautiful fashion. He shouts out for our attention in the rivers and the oceans, the sunsets and the full moon, the glittering snow and the vast deserts.

Who is getting out attention?

I had a dream that I was in the movie "Speed" and one of the babies from my work was the one driving the bus.

A Few Firsts

Today was my first time to...

1) Be jealous of the co-worker who walked out on the job (I really need a new job)
2) Be "employee of the month" (regardless of my desire to walk out on the job)
3) Take a shot (peppermint schnapps)
4) Drink alcohol that was given as a gift by an employer (the peppermint schnapps)
5) Get carded in Tennessee (two amaretto sours)
6) Play Powerball (did not win. 6 co-workers plus myself all chipped in)
7) Be on the internet in 2007 (therefore happy new year everyone)
