Early Morning Thread, 1/31/15 - Early Morning Thread. [krakatoa]

This thread. It's up in the early morning.

I like starting off the day with something productive. Makes going back to sleep feel that much easier to rationalize.

12 Jenner should, at this point be pointed at, and openly mocked.

Although, living in a house full of female Kardashian probably does contribute to mental instability.

Bug...not feature.

The '76 Olympics were great, and Jenner's decathlon was the capper.

And yet, even as a 16 year old kid, I sensed something odd about him that I couldn't quite put my finger on.

Stay For The Message Of Faith

Dude Perfect, five buddies who recently graduated Texas A&M, have become one of the hottest sensations on the Internet for their trick shot and "stereotype" videos. They've done videos with Russell Wilson and Pete Carroll, among other sports stars, and have gotten product placement deals with Gatorade, car manufacturers, and other topline companies...but have eschewed alliances with alcoholic beverages or men's magazines.

That's because the subtext of Dude Perfect is their love for the Perfect Dude - their Christian faith underlies every YouTube video. What drives these guys to throw basketballs from the Goodyear blimp or the top row of Cowboys Stadium? If you guessed the love of God, you'd be right.

A Dude Perfect trick shot video will be featured in the NBC Super Bowl pregame show on February 1...sharing the airwaves with an interview with President Obama. That's coming a long way from College Station.


ffs
this is why the country is in the crapper
The JEF is so busy playing all these bs cards.
He ruins everything.
Don't these guys know he's anti-christian?
oh well

37 Except for the car situation I'm quite happy. I went to the store yesterday and there was a beautiful baby of about 18 months riding in the front of the shopping cart. He was Indian (Asian) with the most beautiful large dark eyers His name was Anush (sp?) and dressed in a red coat and he was kicking his green stripped leggings with glee and smiling from ear to ear. I said to his mother, "He looks like a really happy baby. "He is" she says , "He just loves going outside to look at the world."

Then I went to a drama performance of kids and a couple of adults at a high school. You could tell they were having fun and there were so many attractive kids of different ethnic groups. They shows (6 scenes) were well done and some of them were really funny, and teens being teens they all predictably laugh at any reference to sex or genitals. The latter could make them horde members ;^) except this is the most expensive private school in the country and the epi center of liberal central NJ so they find the world "Republican" funny too but not for the same reasons we do. A nice evening.

94 I looked at Weather Channel app & thought I'd get feels like but storm watch late Sundat through very early am Tuesday, 8-12 inches of snow on way.

It's snowing now & winds up to 40 mph today too.

There are mountains of snow here & I don't know where another foot can go. I wish it snowed before we had single digit temps. Last time I looked & it was before snow roses looked dead.
Snow is good for them but before those temperatures.

97 Then I came home and read part of a biography of Saint Therese of Lisieux by Fr. Bernard Bro and I came across this quote:


Therese believed in her most simple and direct life, believed that is was in the everyday that God comes, a God who is present and who says to each of us, "Will you?"..Nothing diverts me" she says of God, "Nothing destroys may plans. Nothing at all." The author says in it her writings Therese gives an advance commentary on "Lumen Gentium":

"The event comes to me then literally a present from God, present in the two fold sense of the word presence and of the word gift. This present moment comes to me wrapped in action that is offered to or asked of me. To makes one's bed or celebrate Mass, to peel vegetables or to receive communion, to wait for a bus or to pray, at every moment the action is offered to me in the presence God takes in my life

St Therese died young and of course had her times of depression and darkness. She took up her cross, but wasn't a complainer and really had a joyful attitude towards life.

It's very refreshing.

Didn't her marriage break up recently? Tends to indicate her "lifestyle" advice is suspect.

IIRC, she had an odd way of describing the split from her husband. Anyone remember?

109 [Waves back to Carol]

Mad Magazine's send-up of the '70s Hulk TV show. On the show, they had changed Banner's name to David from Bruce. Mad suggested they did this because of the "Bruce" name suggesting homosexuality, but in the panel for contrast were featured, like, Bruce Wayne and Bruce Lee and so on. And Bruce Jenner.

But sometimes, I guess, a name is destiny.

I went outside wearing my high boots only to toss things in recycle bin day after storm. I took picture from my living room window that day because I wasn't going out again that day.

Natural snow is up to top of first floor porch. They didn't add snow there because my older brother has bad knee & shoulder & has had hard time bringing snow blower up basement stairs & had shed built. The only snow added would be from that porch. Second floor porch has hardly any snow.

124 artisanal 'ette: "I'm watching soccer. I'm good. I actually really do like the sport. I know everyone here at Ace does not, but it's fun to watch."

I had no idea what soccer was when I got to HS, but I played it for three years, ending up co-captain of the B squad, which was pretty good for me, since I started out a flabby, pathetic last-guy-chosen type. And since most of the players were off-season football guys, we didn't play like fancy Europeans but like clunky Americans. Some good memories, despite the agonies.

And if the coach had just put one of my B team guys in for fullback after Tom got that concussion, we might have taken the tournament that last year! But I don't carry that around with me or anything.

I recently started watching Boardwalk Empire. It's on demand & all seasons are there. I started watching early this month.

The other day I was all dressed up & ready to go to bakery. It's on Main St. & I just pull over into Bus Stop area. Then I realized I'd have no place to park.
I have Stop & Shop bakery chocolate chip cookies instead. They're $3.99 for container vs $1.50 each at bakery.
Bakery used to be $1 but upped price by 50% since September. They're not as good but last longer than bakery's cookies & pastries.
