Some years ago, the parent of a dear friend called me to say that his daughter would probably not live thru her season of substance abuse and addiction. This news was devastating to me, but none of her family or friends gave in to resignation.

Today, I officiated her wedding.

One day, Donald Trump, like all of us, will die. I console myself with this simple fact multiple times a day.

I said in an earlier (5 minutes ago) post that many of my liberal friends believe me to be a conservative. Which is funny. But the opposite is also true. I have a fair number of politically conservative friends and many of them think I am a liberal (one of them loudly insisted that this is the case at a table in a Starbucks in West Chester, PA).

Comment

The angry tone that my conservative peepz sometimes take when accusing me of being left has, ironically, resulted in pushing me further left.

as a non-Christian, i find this conversation so helpful. I really appreciate this definition of "Christ centered:" "I try to treat the world the way I believe Christ would want me to" because that wasn't really clear to this Yankee-born atheist.

Look, I'm certainly not a political conservative (although many of my liberal friends believe that I am) but if you're honest with yourself, you'll admit that neither is our president nor any of his top tier staff/advisors. I should say current top tier staff. The real conservatives have all been fired or have resigned.

Anyone who still supports this unapologetically criminal (not to mention racist, but that, sadly, goes without saying at this point) administration is at least an accessory to their crimes.

I could start posting y'all's pictures with "Lock him/her up" captions too. Maybe I will before too long.

Actually the only thing that keeps me from doing so now is that you'd probably take pride in it.

I didn't know about the food fight incident that happened in 2002, when the freshmen from '99 were seniors.

Let's pledge right now to investigate the investigators of the origins of the investigation.

Today I asked my one and only Zimbabwean congregation member to teach me how to ululate. She said she would! #winning

Comment

She showed me a cell vid of her daugher's hooding ceremony (doctorate in biochem, biatchez!). Very staid affair... solemn and silent and all that, until daughter got her hood and suddenly, very close b/c it was the person holding the phone "ULULULULULULUL! and then the whole place erupted in laughter and shouting!

I wish I could have been at the actual event instead of watching it on a tiny screen. Still great though.

I'd love to post something profound but I just keep coming back to the fact that I really like chocolate. Dark.

Nightcrawler. Have you seen it? It's depressing and monstrous and you should see it. Jake Gyllenhaal is in it, if you're into him. And Rene Russo too.

Comment

I'm watching it and listening to the commentary (it's what I do) with the three Gilroy brothers trying to talk over one another. Much fun.

Cool, I'm glad to hear that. The pictures of you performing always seemed like honest joy. Hooray to hanging on to those thin threads when going through rougher things. +1 for the therapist, too.

Haunting of Hill House: episode 6, minus the portions that occur at the house, would make a pretty good one act play.

Avatar for jvjannotti

I hate snow days because they steal away summer vacation days. But I made the most of my winter imposed downtime, as you can see.

Avatar for jvjannotti

Haunting of Hill House. Episode 5 is the first really good one; well written, well acted, genuinely suspenseful and even frightening. However, Nell's therapist is ridiculous, unrealistic and worst of all, a terrible listener. @friarw

Comment

And also, the HELL written on the sign near the end of the episode. Any self respecting graffiti artist would have simply turned the I into an E.
