The next 10 days: Monday, Monday, Monday, Monday, Monday, Monday, Monday, Monday, Monday, Monday,
It's nut-crunching time on getting the house boxed up and carried out, in the mornings and after work evenings, to get ready for the carpet people on Oct. 7.
And a big change at work is affecting every single thing that every person does, and there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Either one of those things would have my gut knotted. Together, it's whelming -- we'll see whether it becomes overwhelming. Ugh.
In the meantime: Open thread! What's on yer mind? I'll be in the comments.
Your place is starting to look like the church at Corinth!
Oh, and re: the above anon, I had to look up Corinth and found this:
"The city was young, dynamic, not hidebound by tradition, a mix of dislocated individuals without strong ethnic identities seeking to shed their former low status by achieving social honor and material success."
Dynamic? Non-traditionalist? A mix of various peoples? Yup, sounds like here.
If so, I'm not sorry. I refuse to apologize for being a Calvinist, even though it is, after all, a lifestyle choice.
I just know anon was talking about me and I am greatly insulted. Shit kiddo, I know a GREAT DEAL MORE than anyone else does. I must be holding back in my opinons for he/her not to see that!
Alan, on Calvinism as a lifestyle choice, that is funny on multiple levels.
DrLobo: I used to be able to see Arkansas from my house. What does that mean??
Y'all keep this place goin' while I'm out, 'K? ... Back to the salt mines ...
Does anyone remember the joke about Jesus, while he's on the cross, telling John, "I can see your house from here"?
Of course that is not as bad as the old Catholic school kid joke of: Why doesn't Jesus ride the bus? Because the exact change keeps falling through his hands.
If think I'm not a Christian is it because I refuse to admit that fundamentalism is the only path to salvation? Is it because I refuse to admit that Christianity is the only path to salvation? Is it because I say that all religions are equally good (as well as equally bad)? I'm sure I don't know, but at least, whoever this anonymous person is, s/he has been paying attention.
A Gay Calvinist . . . It's like the perfect storm of Christianity!
As for those who know more than anybody else, I think all of us qualify for that dubious distinction from time to time. It's a grievous sin, to be sure.
Anyway, the bailout tanked, as did Wall St., and it's all Pelosi's fault, apparently. Can anyone say fait accompli? For anonymous, that's French, that anti-American language, for having accomplished something that was planned beforehand.
Heh. I know lots of people who wouldn't mind us Calvinists so much if we'd just stop shoving our election down everyone's throats.
How about a re-write of the bill that lets all Democrats vote for it and leaves the Republicans holding the blame and Democrats with a liberal regulatory bill? Now that is cynical. So the Republicans voted against a $700,000.000,000.00 loan and let the Stock Market lose $1,200,000,000,000.00 in value or one and five/sevenths times the amount of the $700 billion.
