Why Do We Wait?

Sunday, June 26th, 2005

I’m trying to figure out why Christian parents who believe baptism is a means of grace would wait more than a few minutes or possibly hours to baptize their newborn.
I suppose reasons could range from disbelief to mere tradition. Some parents wait for family to arrive from out of town. If your child […]

Freaky Book Tag

Saturday, June 25th, 2005

I’ve been tagged here, here and here to list books high schoolers should read so I suppose I should comply, but just about all my books are packed up in boxes right now so I can’t just look at my bookshelf and type up the list. I will, however, write up a list of […]

Married men make more money…

Thursday, June 23rd, 2005

…when their wives are housewives.
Hmmm.
According to a Reuters article:
Academics Elena Bardasi and Mark Taylor found that a married man whose wife does not go out to work but is primarily responsible for the cooking and cleaning earns about 3 percent more than comparably employed single men.

Resume

Tuesday, June 21st, 2005

I’m beginning the process of looking for a new job and right now I am procrastinating. I ought to be working on my resume, but I’m about halfway done and sick of trying to sell myself as some super-perfect employee any potential employer would be foolish not to hire.
The truth is I […]

Driving the Alaska Highway

Friday, June 17th, 2005

I drove a car from Juneau to Anchorage for a friend this week.
On Tuesday morning I joined a convoy of my friends at the ferry terminal where we put the vehicles on a ferry to Haines. All of us on less than three hours of sleep drove 450 miles of crappy roads. […]

A new server!

Sunday, June 12th, 2005

Oh, joy unbounded! Oh, sweet relief! Oh, rapture unexampled!
Check out how fast this blog is now! It’s on a server in my brother and sister-in-law’s office now which hasn’t been oversold, doesn’t have an insane backlog of requests waiting to be procssed and comes with the coolest tech guy ever. There may be […]

Another thing I am intolerant of…

…is giving Jesus a sex-change.
Yes! The Son of God, Jesus of Nazareth has now become the Daughter of God, Judith of Nazareth!
The exact name of the book is Judith Christ Of Nazareth, The Gospels Of The Bible, Corrected To Reflect That Christ Was A Woman, Extracted From The Books Of Matthew, Mark, Luke, […]

Ringtone beats out Coldplay

Wednesday, June 1st, 2005

I found this article amusing because lately I’ve been harrassed by Coldplay’s new song Speed of Sound on the radio and in my head.
It’s not so much that I’m getting joy out of Coldplay not doing well. I’m just getting joy out of a ringtone doing better than Coldplay.
