Blink Blink

Where have you been mr log? Oh there you are! I think I will write in you. Thanks!

So it's been a while! I was a blog evangelist for a long time and actually backslid and did not write anything in this thing after I've been on so many people to keep theirs updated. Even bloggers backslide.

I saw a movie this weekend about Christianity. The movie is called "Saved" and I will say up front that if you are going to watch it, it could be highly offensive to you. I will say that if it is, it probably served its purpose.

Nonchristians made the movie to sort of pick on Christian culture and they have made some really good points. One girl in the movie, "a professing Christian", is seen at the abortion clinic by a few of her friends. They go and blab all over the school about seeing her there. The nonchristians react by saying that she must have been planting a pipe bomb.

I really hope that isn't the world's perception of Christianity. But in a lot of ways, it probably is. The movie also points out the fact that many Christians try and make Christianity look "cool." They try to use cool words and be up on certain things to make Christianity look popular and the WWJD thing to do. I got the feeling that one of the preachers in the movie was really trying to convince and sell God to people. how lame. The movie is worth seeing and there a few sketchy parts, I must warn you. I wanted to see the movie to just get an idea about what some of the world thinks about Christians. If the movie is right, we have a lot of work to do.

So on a happier note, I must confess something. I eat dinner out daily. Well let's just be honest here. I never eat at home and I never cook. It's not because I cannot cook, because I can. It's because for the most part, eating dinner out is fun and way more fun than sitting home and cooking it yourself. If you are only cooking for one person, it's not even saving you that much money unless you eat leftovers all the time. So that's my justification for eating lunch and dinner out on a daily basis. Also, it's great for hanging out with people. At the office, it's a chance to get out for an hour and chill away from work. During dinner, same thing. So I do it, forgive me, I'm man.

So about this same subject. I must confess something else. When most people are in the drive-through at your local Zaxby's, they are HUNGRY. Why else are you going there? Well unless you are getting something for you boo. Yes I said boo. Forgive me. Well here is something I like to do. As you know, Zaxby's is not a fast food establishment and you must allow adequate preparation time for your food...it's sad that I have most of the sign memorized. Well anyway. Usually you will wait for Zaxby's at LEAST 10 minutes. It's good stuff and worth waiting for. Well here is what I do. As I'm waiting and people are behind me, I will let my foot off the brake. What is the big deal? I will tell you. Usually people in the drive thrus are rummaging around in their car or reading something when they are waiting in the drive thru. It's the funniest thing in the world. As soon as you let your foot off the brake, your brake light will turn off, of COURSE. Well this signals to the person behind you that they are about to move up and be ONE car link closer to their ZAXBY's. BUT I FOOLED THEM! It's the funniest thing and I about die laughing sitting in the drive thru by myself. You can do it around 5 times, over and over, and you can almost watch most people's heads just bob up and down. How funny. So if you are ever in a drive thru for a long time and preferably at NIGHT, this works great. Many of you might say that this is mean, well you are probably right. Forgive me, I'm man. And it gets my mind off the fact that Zaxby's is soooo good and I have to wait for it. MMMMMMM.

justin ryan tanner...what can i say, you are probably one of the funniest people i've ever known...and it's great! :) thanks for making me smile!

i must confess that i have avoided watching "saved" after seeing an interview with mandy moore (which, by the way, made me sad) about the movie. now i am curious and i think i will watch it with my boots on...i'll let you know what i think.
vietnamese people are maters at copying things...books, cds, dvds...my students and their homework...i do not think there is an original ANYTHING in this whole country! so i'm sure i can find a copy here...could be worth a dollar! :) keep it real!
