Frantic...Running... Out....Of...Time...

I am in a fever pitch as I frantically try to pull everything together for Y.S. Convention in Austin. We leave at 5:30 in the morning, so a long night of sleep is already out of the question.

But, I do really like being a part of the convention connecting with old ministry friends and meeting new ones. Several odd things have forged their way into my mind as I hustle about:

- I'm a guacamole snob. I say I love guacamole, but really I only love it if it is fresh and chunky. I just at lunch at Wahoo's and their guacamole wasn't quite fresh enough. Most people would like it, but not me.

- Why do I have TWO cans of tennis balls sitting on my desk? I don't play tennis, we haven't used them in our ministry....why, then, would I allow two cans of tennis balls to sit there for the past month? Why do I not know how they got there?

- Maybe I'm suffering a very slight mid-life crisis. Lately I've been spending way more time than normal thinking about fashion and the like (way more time than normal only adds up to about a minute a week...but that' still WAY more time than normal...). Do I dress too old, Can I get away with that kind of shirt, would this make me look like I'm trying too hard?

- LOST was great last night, but I'm beginning to dislike Jack....

What? You can't not like Jack, he is the hero, the one and the only. Please love him, please.

Peace

smell the can of the tennis balls and you will be hooked and never remove them from your desk!

I'm kind of getting tired of Lost. Something needs to happen!

While on your trip to Austin, you must go hangout on 6th street one night. And yes, I think you are reaching your midlife crisis. Thats what happens at 45.

simple rule for both 24 and Lost... don't ever say anything bad about the character named Jack.

How was it possible that such an idea should enter our brains?
