pizza and pajama pants

--oh, how i love thee, random posts.  i don't have to spend hours thinking about what i'm going to write.  i just sit down and see what comes out.  it's liberating.

--'new girl' with zooey deschanel is seriously one of the best shows on television. her charm is unstoppable and irresistible.  the supporting cast is really fun.  now that i think about it, it's sort of like "friends" for 2011, with less hairspray. 

--yesterday caedmon looked at our stockings hanging on the mantle and said, "why do we have these giant socks hanging here?"  i guess he isn't big on Christmas traditions yet. 

--last night was my turn to cook. so i had to make a tough choice between ramen noodles or papa johns. i think you can guess which one won.

--our church is doing a christmas play called "live from bethlehem" this sunday afternoon.  if you're in the sunbury area, you should come check it out around 1pm on sunday at our church.  it'll be worth it just to see caedmon sing away in a manger (if he does it anything like he did it at the nursing home this weekend); it comes complete with a dramatic rock-star ending in which he ends up on the ground.  seriously.  he is so dramatic.  no idea where he got that.  here's a a picture of shannon holding the largest baby jesus you ever saw. 

--'tis the season for Christmas music. is giving away a song every day.  some of them are awful, but there are some gems, too.  i love Christmas music, especially since i have about 700 Christmas songs that i can just put on shuffle and fa-la-la-la-la my way through the day.  here is one of the more amusing ones. 

--the steelers play the thursday night game this week, which means that they play TOMORROW NIGHT!!!  i've said this before, but in my paradise, the steelers play doubleheaders every day, and win them all.  this week the steelers look to move to 10-3 against the browns.  as with most of the other teams we've played this year, the browns will probably put all their emotion into this game, wanting to beat the reigning afc champions, not to mention a division rival.  they would love to spoil our playoff run.  so the steelers better not take this game lightly.  you hear me, steelers? 

--we ran out of cream for our coffee this morning, so after i took jackson to the bus stop i went to the grocery store.  in my batman pajama pants.  i've sunk to a new low.  but i needed that cream. 

--everybody have a great wednesday. 

--ps.  it was pizza, in case you were wondering.

Clinton and Stacy would not be proud of you and your grocery store attire. Ask shannon if you can't remember who these important people are.

oh, believe me, i know who they are. i was worried the whole time i was in there that they were watching me on a secret camera.

oh how we miss your humor around here! great post today! your boys are sure to provide you with many years of fun activity and honest expression ... they certainly have a great mentor!
Went to a small luncheon yesterday ... a few ladies from CUMC ... were your ears burning? Several "greg stories" were thrown about!

Seriously, one of the cutest baby Jesus's I've ever seen. His Aunt Julie was pretty cute in the manger too (many years ago). BTW, I hope you weren't wearing slippers too! Gross.

@peggy: i can't believe that there are any stories to tell about me! :) thanks for the smile.

@mom: no slippers, but i was wearing steelers sandals. probably not any better. i'm a mess.

bad haircuts (for a laugh)

everybody needs to laugh.  one good way i have found to make that happen is to do a simple google image search for 'bad haircut.'  when you do so, some of the following gems show up.  thankfully, my 9th grade school picture does NOT show up.  otherwise, it would certianly make this list!  please laugh freely and without inhibition.  thank you and have a nice day. 

State College to Birmingham

 as some of you know, i have been working towards a goal i set at the beginning of 2020 of running 1000 miles in one calendar year.  today is the last day of september (what?!?), and so that means the year is 3/4 of the way complete, which means i should be right around the 750 mile marker.  however, i am doing better than that, as my 5 mile run today put me at 847 miles for the year, almost 100 miles ahead of schedule!  i am feeling great, enjoying the journey, and experiencing a real sense of accomplishment as i work towards this goal.   i have also enjoyed these little milestones along the way, just to see how far i've come.  as it turns out, 847 miles from State College (along the roads, not as the crow flies) would have me arriving in Birmingham, AL, right about now!  not too shabby!  only about 150 to go!

i will give you a new name

in our church, we are continuing with a series called "letters from Jesus," in which we are looking at the seven letters in the beginning of revelation addressed to seven churches in asia.  we are imagining what it would be like if we were to receive a hand-written letter from Jesus to our church.  what would it say?  how would we be encouraged?  how would we be challenged?  we've looked at three of the letters now.  this week we looked at the letter to the church in pergamum.  the letter to them includes some harsh criticism of some of their behavior, but it also says that Christ understands how difficult their situation is.  and in case they feel like they are stuck in their sinfulness, Jesus says something amazing to them:  i will give you a new name.  the world gives us so many names, doesn't it?  our parents, of course, give us our birth names.  but the naming doesn't stop there.  it continues right on through elementary school, high school, and into t
