Odds and Ends

~Last night I dreamt that I went to see Nacho Libre. If you haven't seen it yet, look out. There's a live karaoke part during the beginning credits hosted by a black drag queen. For never hearing the song before, I held my own pretty well.

~I know of two local fireworks displays around where I live. Neither one are actually on the 4th. This will be the first 4th in a couple years where neither of us are working...hold on...when SHE isn't working. I haven't worked on the 4th of July since my job at Wal-Mart.

~It's 7:40 in the morning. I'm drinking coffee, and bouncing up and down (you should see it) to DJ Sammy. It's gonna be a good day.

~My boy over at Jeremiah's Field got called to a church a few weeks ago after a harried year of searching. Depending on the area of the country--'red'/'blue,' Good Old Boys Network in the Association, specific polity requirements, etc.--you really can end up being at it for a while. I'm happy that he's found stability and is ready to use the gifts God gave him.

~Rowan Williams, spiritual leader of the Anglican Communion, has proposed a two-tier membership system to cope with diversity. Those more 'correct' are full members, and those with 'growing edges' can still associate themselves with the Anglicans, but can't vote. How charitable. It sounds like a denominational split without calling it a split.
