One of my friends e-mailed me and asked if I’d be breaking my usual policy of not watching TV except during the World Series to catch Aimee Mann on some TV show called West Wing tonight. Or maybe it was tomorrow. Whenever it was, my response was terse.
“Dang it! I don’t have time for that!”
I’d mention our ensuing dialogue, but I’m afraid some of it might be taken out of context and haunt me later. Oddly enough, it was my second conversation of the day where illegal mind-altering substances came up.
Most of my attention is going towards moving. If Aimee Mann were single, I’d probably take time out to watch her and swoon, just because I’ve heard far too many comments lately from single girls about Bebo Norman. But Aimee Mann’s not single so I shouldn’t be oogling her, and I don’t have to have an inferiority complex about Bebo Norman.
No, that money on the dresser isn’t my savings fund for an acoustic guitar. No, those aren’t lyrics in that notebook. No, I don’t have an inferiority complex about Bebo Norman! I don’t know what I’ve got but I know it’s not that!
I’m looking for an easy cure, easy cure
An easy cure for my ills
I could never find my way
You said you were the way, the truth, and life
They said it was impossible
You said anything is possible
And that’s why I celebrate faith
Ha! Did Bebo Norman ever write any lines as good as those? He did? Rats.
OK, fine. I’ve got an inferiority complex about Bebo Norman. So sue me.
I’m gonna go move big, heavy stuff and assert my manliness. (I bet Bebo Norman couldn’t LIFT THIS COUCH all by himself!) You go read a comic strip or something so you’re laughing at it and not at me.
Just stumbled across your website–actually it was the old page where you surfaced the LCMS conflict. I am also a conservative member of LCMS who supports Dr. Kieschnick and Dr. Benke wholeheartedly. (I said conservative, not reactionary) Have sent each a couple notes of support. I suppose you have found the Lutheran Central website by now…
And we have a support group at our church called Linux for Lutherans — nothing to do with the conflict mentioned above, just a revolt against Microsoft hegemony. I just dropped in on the group last week, and that’s all I know about Linux. Group leader is looking for a good way to exercise his skills, and I’m trying to figure out where step one is. I’ll give him a challenge….

At least Bebo is a good guy… he is a spokesman for the place I work, Compassion International. He’s been here a couple of times to perform for us in the office. Way, way cool.
I just never thought I’d live to see the day when you’d be too busy for Aimee. Of all the people to leave me for a loss of words, I never thought it’d be YOU! 😉
Oh, Bebo’s definitely a good guy and I like his music too. I just wish he’d hurry up and get married so I don’t have to compete with him. 🙂
OK, I’m not sure if you’ve done it and I’ve missed it, or whether you haven’t done it yet, but I want to see pictures of this other love of your’s. Both the house and rooms, but more importantly, the YARD.
Haven’t posted any pics yet. I need to borrow a digital camera.
Dave, I just saw that Waterdeep is playing in St. Louis on Novemeber 2nd. Don’t know where, but the band’s website should. They are one group that you should make a point of going to see.
