Bloggish Celebrations and Adultish Laughter

Well, this is my 292nd post on this thing. I suppose I could have just not said anything and left the surprise until my 300th, but I was afraid I would forget and just not have any celebration at all. So lets have a toast to my 292nd post on this friggin’ massive blog of mine. Cheers!

Now that the festivities are over until another 8 posts go by, let me tell you just a tiny bit about my day. To make a short story even shorter, nothing much has happened. I got up, had a shower and got dressed, then was pleasantly greeted by my father who asked why I hadn’t called Sears yet. My sister went and took her driver’s test to get her G license, passed, and is now driving like a maniac (well, actually she’s upstairs, but oh well). I called Sears once the store actually opened, got the lady’s voice mail, and it said she was on holidays until August 8th or 9th. She then rhymed off the extension of another supervisor, which I then called and left a message on his voice mail. I called Marco Sales as well, and found out that the lady I thought was looking at my resume actually had an employee doing that for the summer instead. So I got patched through to her voice mail, left a message there, and am now thoroughly confused, waiting for someone to call me back.

Once my sister came home from her…Continue Reading

The Roller Coaster Day

Well, I must say that yesterday was certainly a day of ups and downs. Soon after posting yesterday’s entry, Steph phoned me up and provided the means of distraction that I needed. She told me that we were going to go to Apps Mill – soon after, Josh, who was also there, decided that he didn’t want to go since he had to work “soon.” Of course, it would still have given us a couple hours there, but he was whiny, so Steph told me just to come over to Kristy’s house and we’d figure something out for what to do after Josh left for work. We watched Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, then Josh left, and we decided – well, they decided – to go hang out at Wal-Mart for a while until Zeth got off from work.

I suppose I probably wasn’t all that fun to be around yesterday. With the whole situation going on yesterday, I was not in a good mood, and after getting up early to cut the grass, I was grumpy and sore. I just kind of followed Kristy and Steph around Wal-Mart making sarcastic comments about whatever they looked at. I soon realized that I really wasn’t having fun at all with this, and was probably ruining their fun as well, so I tried to shut up, but I don’t think it worked too well. Soon I didn’t say much, and I think they likely appreciated that more than my sarcasm. Anyways, soon before…Continue Reading


I’m not sure how exactly to start this, but I needed to write another entry today, and so I guess I’ll just jump right into it. Today is a strange day. I was perfectly fine for a while, and now suddenly I’ve become all reflective and stuff. I’m thinking about all sorts of things, and they’re all clogging up my brain like a big wad of toilet paper clogging up a toilet. Excuse the imagery.

I guess the easiest way to start is to do this in chronological order. It all started when Dare You To Move by Switchfoot came on. Earlier I had been grumbling and complaining, and right when that song came on, I started thinking, “Hmm, I guess I need to ask for God’s forgiveness. It’s sin after all.” I was feeling all guilty about it, and then that song just kind of hit me. I hadn’t even been listening to it really, but as soon as it said, “Maybe forgiveness is right where you fell,” I realized what it was talking about. All of this…I don’t know, stuff…just slammed into me like a freight train, and my brain couldn’t process it fast enough. I just sort of sat there for a minute or two, trying to focus.

I then began searching the archives of this blog of mine to look for the time when this happened before. I remember it happening, but I didn’t know when, and so I went to look. As I did so,…Continue Reading
