Random Thoughts

1. Today is warmer than yesterday, I blame climate change.

2. You know what’s sad? I am comforted by the fact that even though I had to go to the DMV yesterday, I was not at work. Probably not alone in that, and that’s not comforting.

3. Baseball season ended, I looked up and there was my wife and kids.

4. I only eat organic, locally-grown jelly beans.

5. Last year for my birthday I got an iPad. This year I got Bratwurst and freshly-sliced bacon. I’m calling it a tie.

6. Princess Leia is my favorite Disney Princess.

7. Unless you hitched a ride to the library to use a computer, you should not be writing articles criticizing the American Dream and the desire for prosperity.

8. Had to have the talk with my kids the the other night…about the Halloween candy tax levied by us parents.

9. All books on materialism should be available only in digital format.

10. We need a generation of pastors and Christian leaders doing small things you will never ever hear anything about.

    #7 and #9 remind me of a pastor from a hip urban church that I once saw tell a group of people how the biggest sin in the Church is consumerism, as he stood in a Panera Bread, Macbook and iPhone on the table in front of him.

    10. Random smart-alec comment :). If this came about – and I will submit that it has already happened and is even now happening – how would we know?

      Stop and read your comment very slowly.

    About 7, preachers with multiple Tivos and home theaters should really avoid denouncin gconsumerism.

    About 9, those books should also all be published strictly under the most liberal open copyrights possible. 😉 It’s pretty amazing to consider that in ten years some church I’ve heard about went from advocating everyone go open copyright because intellectual property was an outmoded idea to having a crazy quilt of licensing and terms of use notices on all their very-much copyrighted and trademarked material. .

      Great points both. Never thought about copywriter I relation to materialism, only communism.
