Yesterday’s local news: storm, storm, ebola, storm, storm
A CBS11 reporter actually reported back that Big Tex was still standing after the storm, as if we were all worried about him. Yes, I understand him burning down was our 9/11, but unless he gets ebola there’s no news there.
When the Mavs were losing to the Heat in their first NBA Finals appearance I remember telling a coworker how much I couldn’t stand Dwyane Wade. He asked why I told him it’s because he gets all the calls, and then he tells me I shouldn’t be mad at Wade, but at the refs. He may not know it, but that moment replays a lot in my head and now makes me focus where my anger or frustration should be directed.
In the seventh grade I had a devout Christian teacher explain what GD meant. I’m not sure how we got on the topic, but she stated that one is not damning God, but telling God to put something to damnation. So if you say GD to a person, you are telling God to send that person to Hell, or if you stub your toe, you are telling God to send that pain or moment to Hell. From that moment I’ve been fascinated with etymology.
I’m not saying this is the case for everyone that gets offended by GD, but I tend to think a lot of those folks who make a fuss about it are looking for an opportunity to stand up for Christ and showcase they are a Christian. It’s my understanding that God is pretty powerful and can defend himself, perhaps a better weapon would be grace, which doesn’t mean you have to like the term.

I can’t remember if I mentioned it, but the kids are really into Tom & Jerry. Last night one of my favorites came on, the one where Tom is an opera singer singing Figaro. The other one I really like is when the house floods and they rig the freezer to turn the flooded house into an ice skating rink.
I don’t clear out my cache and cookies as often as I should.
