Halloween Stinks

I hate Halloween. I despise adults who get excited about "what they are going to wear" for the day. Halloween is for little kids who go trick or treating for candy. It's not a day for grown men to act out their transvestite fantasies in public or couples who don their B&D gear for everyone to see. I think its a bizarre display of exhibitionism. Quite frankly, it's disturbing to me to see my 40 something year old neighbor in her daughters cheerleader outfit. Deep down I know she wishes she was that little kid again and perversely she is soooo enjoying the Halloween moment in front of us all. Yuck! Please people. Keep all your costumes locked up in your closets and just wear them for your spouses and loved ones who care for you. I hate to tell you this. You are annoying and you don't look as good as you think you do. Now get away from my door step or I'll have to get my peace-maker and blast your ass!

Being Martha or Being Mary

I assume if you've attended church you might have heard this one before, but I think its important. I read the Bible in the morning. It helps me focus and gets my mind centered on life's priorities. I read the passage in Luke where Jesus was visiting a house and the two sisters, Martha and Mary were there. Martha was running around making dinner and tending to all the details for the guests, but Mary was just chilling listening to Jesus and enjoying his company. Martha was getting pissed because she was doing all this work and Mary wasn't doing crap and she said to Jesus, " Hey Jesus, do you think its fair that I'm running around doing everything and Mary is sitting there doing nothing?" Jesus turned to her and said, "Don't sweat the details Martha. Whatever will be, will be. Mary knows I won't be here forever and she's enjoying the time she has with me. You should chill too." Jesus is cool in my book. I don't think he was trying to put Martha down, but she has to know when to stop and enjoy life. Too often we get caught up in the details. We need to slow down and enjoy what life has for us, what God has given us and don't be in such a hurry to always do the work that we think has to be done or take care of the silly details. I think we should pay attention to the little things and enjoy them. The laundry and the garbage and the painting and the vacuuming can all wait. Be with your loved ones.

Furniture Shopping Continued

Cathy and I finally pulled the trigger on some furniture. A leather couch, loveseat and chair for the room from Thomasville. See pics at this website I guess we can finally sit in our family room. Too bad that there's no money left to get a TV! Damn furniture! What good is a family room without a TV! What are we gonna do? Sit back there and read? Play the fiddle and square dance like we are Ma an Pa, Half-Pint and Mary in the Little House on the Prairie? Damn Damn Damn! I need to watch some football games in my room. I'm pissed.
