10 Totally Random Things

(10) Napoleon Dynamite has probably influenced the fashion world more than any nerd in history.

(9) This morning I read the Book of Jonah in the Bible. This short little story is absolutely amazing. I could study it and meditate on it forever.

(8) Today the SonRise Church staff went to lunch. As usual, we laughed hard for most of the time. I’ve laughed harder and more frequently with this group of people than with anyone else I’ve ever known.

(7) My wife absolutely loves little children. Many days she comes home stressed out from teaching kindergarten and says she doesn’t want to talk about it. But before long, she’s laughing and telling me all the cute and funny things her students said and did that day.

(6) My brother Jason and his wife Kristi have their third kid on the way. They churn out some pretty cute ones.

(5) I like the scrambled eggs at TC Diner in West Ocean City, but they sure don’t look very scrambled.

(4) We’re starting a new series at SonRise this Sunday. It’s called “Just Walk Across the Room,” and it has the potential to revolutionize our church.

(3) Our secretary, Terri, turns 42 today. I hope she doesn’t mind me sharing that with our little global community.

(2) Some dead guy in the Middle East is now famous because he’s been mistaken for Jesus Christ. I bet he never saw that one coming.

(1) That’s weird how every day people have to eat and drink stuff and use the bathroom. Wouldn’t it be simpler, faster, and cheaper to just avoid both? (Look, it makes sense to me.)

The Top 10 Good Things About This Half-A-Degree Weather We’ve Been Having

It’s been a while since we’ve had a Top 10 list here, so I figure it’s about time. Plus, we’ll have better attitudes about the weather since this list can help us keep this cold spell in perspective. So here is…

The Top 10 Good Things About This Half-A-Degree Weather We’ve Been Having:

(10) No need for hats, scarves, or gloves. I mean, you’re instantly numb anyway, so what’s the point?

(9) Even people who have to use their fingers to count can tell you the temperature.

(8) The mercury in thermometers gets a break.

(7) Driving over frozen puddles. Nuff said.

(6) Even a light dusting of snow doesn’t melt. And winter without snow is like summer without sun.

(5) Good health–it’s too cold to get a cold. Even germs are staying at home by the fireplace.

(4) Eating ice cream actually warms you up.

(3) It shows that global warming is not yet as severe as it seemed.

(2) It’s funny to see the Ocean Pines ducks and geese sitting on a giant block of ice. They’re goofy looking.

(1) How often do you get to spit and it turns to ice in midair?
