Random Top 10...

So much has been going on in my little life since I last posted. Here is a quick review, in no particular order.

1. Youth stuff seems to be going well. I still am feeling like I am short handed and all, but the overall vibe of what we are doing is working. Sunday is our youth Christmas party and I am fairly stoked about that. Got some fun and goofy things planned. Plus, there will be presents involved and presents are always good.

2. The Sweet Pickle, cagey veteran road warrior that it is eclipsed the 150,000 mile marker. Very soon it will be completely paid off. If I can just manage to get it to pass emissions here in Nashville, I will be set. I need to do a Sweet Pickle tribute post this weekend...

3. Church stuff- oh boy. The long and the short is that there are some financial issues and the church is working out what it wants to do with next year's budget. I am simply praying for wisdom and discernment for everyone involved.

4. It is a strange feeling to be yelled at by a creditor on the phone and knowing that I have nothing worth them seizing. Very bizarre. And they are very rude. Like rude to the point of anger. Which they shouldn't be because a quick Google search provides one with their address. (I was looking to send one of those "Cease and Desist" letters to them, because they wouldn't give it to me, which is a violation of the law.)

5. It snowed this morning. Now, it didn't stick to the ground or anything but it snowed. Like enough so that in Atlanta, I would be swinging elbows, bowing up and fighting for eggs and bread and milk, even though I only use milk. Here it was like no big deal. And I realized that if it ever really does snow, there is no way I could make it to work with some the hills between my apartment and my office.

6. Went to the National Youth Worker's Convention. Long and the short- it was great, as always. Really liked Starfield leading worship, though I missed the Crowder moments. Heard some great talks and went to a really, really great seminar- Marko's "Leading Through Change." I owe him a "Atta boy!" email. (And I learned that other people have been punched by a senior pastor and fired because a handful of people didn't like them.)

7. Been reading. Slowly. Reviews forthcoming...

8. We had a programming staff meeting yesterday and it was fantastic. Worked on Lent and that time frame. Felt good to do some team planning and have some needed discussions. 9 AM until nearly 4 PM. On a Wednesday. At the end, I was severely brain drained and still had a full night of youth stuff, which when all of that is added to my convention crud cold, it made for a long night. Feeling better today and will request that in the future such meetings be Tuesday meetings.

9. Headed towards the end of the fantasy football season. Hasn't been a stellar season but I have had a good year, anchored by Steven Jackson and Warrick Dunn at RB and Tom Brady at QB. In the rising rookie report, Vince Young has been fantastic for me, and considering he was my last pick in the draft, that has been good. This week I battle the Mighty Edina Colonials, so we will see. Two men enter and one man gets a better draft position next year...

10. I love the TV show "House." I am about halfway through season 2 and it was great. I also tried to watch some "Entourage" and just don't get it. If it had a good cast, maybe. It is a show being carried on the idea that it is a good concept with no execution. Best thing I am watching is still "Heroes" and "Battlestar Galatica."

Dude, you got punched by a senior pastor?! Wow. I'm sure there's a story there...

I have a friend who got swung at by his boss who was in the midst of a diabetic crash/seizure/delirium/whatever.

The mental image of you bowing up and combatting people in a crowded aisle at Kroger for eggs and milk made me laugh out loud at work ... eliciting looks from passers-by.
