One of my college pastors died this week. He had a penchant and a real gift in telling bad jokes over and over again that got funnier and funnier for some reason, and he liked to say Coach Jesus.
In other pastoral death news, Robert Schuller died. If preachers die in threes, then Billy Graham must be on the on-deck circle.
DaughterGeeding, her friend, and her brother like to act out Jesus dying on the cross and his resurrection, and they wanted to perform the skit during chapel time at their preschool. So if you are up for a four-minute video about said subject in which the camera goes out of focus towards the end, here you go. I just got a kick they brought their own props from home and used a toy Black & Decker plastic hammer to nail Jesus to the cross.
Work had me bummed out yesterday. I’ve been working on something for quite a while which increased quality and efficiency significantly, but the credit went to someone else who isn’t very well liked. It bothered me for a good couple of hours, but then was able to move on better than I expected.
Fox4 has a new female sports anchor and Ed Bark tweeted her LinkedIn profile. If your summary starts of with ” My father served in the US Navy for 22 years . . .” then your professional experience must be lacking or you suck at writing a resume or CV. There’s nothing wrong with being proud of your papa, but you need to tout your professional experience and accomplishments, not start off with some sort of goody two-shoes story. Heck, I’ve seen high school scholarship applications better than that. But then again, she’s the one working in a top five market in a career she loves and I’m not.
WifeGeeding thought it was strange for a certain senior in high school to decide to go to college somewhere different than his parents. I thought it was perfectly normal for a kid to pick a college of his choosing without any parental pressure.
LiberallyLean posted a great video of window washers being abused by the wind on the 91st floor of a building.
James Corden did a neat little experiment on last night’s ‘Late Late Show’. He went through a neighborhood trying to find a house that would allow him to broadcast the show from their living room. So they found a guy with two roommates who agrees to do this, and then you have James Corden and Reggie Watts on your couch, and the next thing you know Jeff Goldblum and Beck walks through your door and you couldn’t have dreamed of such a thing earlier in the day. Corden likes the format of having all guests on at the same time, and he held true to this again but this time with all people of the house for the whole show with the celebrities. I’ll admit it wasn’t all that funny and made for a lot of awkwardness, but I was highly entertained. The homeowner actually had five vinyl Beck albums so it must have been an awesome experience to have the musician as a guest on his couch and then perform in his living room.
