So, I'm watering a bunch of plants at the Botanical Garden when this wasp flies up to me and says "Bzzt--zzt-zzt--Bzt?" I said, "Yeah, it's back the way you came," while cocking my 50-calibur can of raid. "We don't take kindly to yer type around these parts." This boy was smart enough to flitter off … Continue reading The Wasp Racist
Oreo cookies supported gay pride. Oh...wait...what? A cookie company supported...I...didn't know they supported stuff. Are the Keebler elves Republicans now, too? Whether right or wrong, this was some weird news to see. But the picture of the Oreo with the seven rainbow cream fillings looked DELICIOUS. I heard this on the Phillip de Franco show … Continue reading Christian Freakouts! The GAE COOKEEEZ!
This is part 3 of my self-management series based on Proverbs 27:23-24, being stewards of all that is ours. Well, what about our time?

Pt. 3–Time
I just recently started a job at the Missouri Botanical Gardens (a big plant place for those of you who don't know what a botanical garden is). It's landscaping work, which is fairly tough out in the heat, but I saw that coming and the pay is worth it and the people are good, so … Continue reading 10 Questions About Bug Bites
I went fishing with my dad today for father’s day. I’m not much of a fisher, but dad like is and we went a couple years ago and that turned out to be very enjoyable, even if my first two catches were a power line and a stick. Dad had just moved to Lake St. … Continue reading Dad, Are You Watching?
I've done a lot of strictly sermon-like posts lately, and this blog is more than just that, so I thought I'd do a list instead. Being a writer, I'm also a reader. On top of that, I'm a bit of a tech dork--I don't have every newfangled invention, but i want 'em all, whether they're … Continue reading Top 5 Things I Love/HATE about E-Books
As I started writing this, I was watching a video from one of my followers (asktasha) that features a 15-minute workout, and I'm like "Dang, that girl crazy!" as I reach into a bag of chips. Workouts suck. I've started a zillion of them and quit just as many. Every time I get into a … Continue reading Manage Yo’ Self! Part 2–Your Body
The more my wife talks about her old church, the happier I am she left the place. Basically speaking, it's a closed, dead church. They may welcome you in the door, yeah, but they have no mind for outreach or growth of any sort. There's nothing wrong with being small, but there is something wrong … Continue reading We Are Gathered Here To…What, Exactly?
I know a guy who would talk about how he's struggling to get by financially. It's a hard economy no matter what the government says, his job only pays so much, and when you add in all the bills, it's tough to get by. That's true. Especially when you're buying brand new sports cars and pimping … Continue reading Manage Yo’ Self!–Pt. 1: Money
I've decided to start doing a weekly series as well as my regular blog posts. It's all based around one of my favorite proverbs: "Be diligent to know the state of your flocks, and attend to your herds; for richers are not forever, nor does a crown endure to all generations." -Proverbs 27: 23-24 A farmer's … Continue reading Manage Yo’ Self!–Intro
