Yesterday was an interesting day.  I had taken some cough syrup the night before so I could sleep much later than usual and I made it to 9:30 am before popping out of bed, which was about an hour and a half better than I expected so that was a win right out of the gate.  Cinnamon rolls for breakfast continued the winning streak.  After a little TV and a shower, lunch was had and both mine and Erin’s cars were taken to the car wash in celebration of the beautiful weather we’ve stumbled upon.  Both cars got the “treatment” both inside and out.  After bringing them home, Erin’s back window now plays host to a new Apple sticker and a sweet Reel Big Fish sticker that we got at their show a couple years ago.  My back window now proudly boasts a second Apple sticker, a White Zombie “Zombie” sticker and a Reel Big Fish sticker with the same design, only different color, that was also purchased at that ska show.  I rocked out the kitchen last night, whipping up some pan-seared pork chops with sauteed apples and potatoes.  We watched “Snatch” on the couch and made it to bed just before midnight.

Today has been an interesting day.  Waking up from some incredible dreams (that I neglected to write down, even though I say I’m going to do that every time), I had a shower and fired up some blueberry muffins for breakfast.  I also fried myself a couple of eggs and washed them down with my creatine / blueberry-pomegranate juice.  Church was a lot of fun this morning, as I sat behind Pat Summitt and wondered if, after shaking her hand, I was somehow better at basketball (I asked my self the same question when I took a dump in the bathrooms at UNC Chapel Hill last year).  The message today spelled out everything this church is about, really nailing lots of characteristics that I really like, such as not pushing a political agenda, not being a “perfect person” church, and more than anything, accepting each and every person with the love of the Lord, no matter where you come from, your gender, the color of your skin or your sexual orientation.  I think a lot of churches could learn a lot from this approach.  Actually applying the LOVE portion of the bible to our lives instead of just the rules and punishments.  It’s certainly nice to have your spirits brought up on Sunday mornings instead of torn down.  It’s also nice to know that I’m going to a church where I don’t have to paint a face on before I go, and I actually look forward to going there.  Moving on…Little E and I took Trudy on a family drive this afternoon, enjoying the weather, some good tunes and a look around some of the spooky portions of the Knoxville / Powell area.  An afternoon nap was interrupted by my desire to finish reading American Psycho, which I’m just passed the halfway point.  I think tonight’s forecast calls for some chickcen alfredo mushroom ravioli, ironing a weeks’ worth of clothes, a nice shave and possibly “The Abominable Dr. Phibes” since I’ve gotten this blog and haiku out of the way.

Tomorrow will be interesting.  We’ll see what happens.

Enjoy today’s haiku:

Not even hungry
So someone please tell me why
I crave Burger King


  1. Highlights of today:
    cleaning the car windows with vinegar and newspapers, realizing God doesn’t stay in the church and play the drums when we’re gone, and seeing Trudy enjoy her first trip to the pet store with a Vols jersey in her closet now. I think Pat Summit would be proud. : )
