'Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances'
Today's devotion by the Rev. Dr. Jo Hudson, pastor of that big ol' happy and gay church in Dallas, the Cathedral of Hope, still-new congregation of my brothers and sisters in the United Church of Christ.
Happy New Year's Eve, y'all.
Maybe it's their New Years resolution. If so, I wholeheartedly support it. LOL
Happy New Year. Be safe tonight. Me? I gotta WORK, so the only threat to my life will be imbeciles who think it's fun to run around on New Year's Eve, rather than get drunk, throw up, and pass out in a strange house like everyone else.
BTW, Geoffrey and Feodor, I see y'all over there tanglin' with the 'Merican Descenders. I'm just not up to their low level of middlin' faux intellect lately.
Enjoy the New Year's festivities, and remember those of us who are enjoying the coming of 2009 by earning what most would refuse to call a living.
But I have yet to decide what the hell to do with that leap second they got going tonight. I wonder, will the last minute of 2008 be 61 seconds long or will they stutter for one second before they start counting for 2009. And how do you re-set an atomic clock? Do you tell the isotopes to slow down a mite or do you put a magnet near by it or what?
