O Me of Little Faith

Happy Monday. I’ve done something like this before, but I figured it would be a good time to run with it again.

What I’m doing right now: Biding time while compressing a video in iMovie. Day job stuff.

What I will do next: Design some posters for a Christmas gift-giving thing for my church’s internationals ministry.

What I did last night: Watched the movie “Get Smart” with my wife after the kids went to bed. I don’t recommend it. Despite the presence of Steve Carell, it was pretty boring. I only watched the first 4/5ths of the movie. The last 20 minutes were spent sleeping, which I never do. (Well, at least which I never do during a movie. I do sleep. Almost every night even!)

Another thing I did this weekend: Watched “High School Musical 3” with the kids. Loved it. You could definitely tell the difference a big-screen budget makes compared to the first two made-for-TV editions. Better music, more complex choreography, large-scale cinematic sequences. HSM2 had a better plot, probably, but who cares about the plot of a musical anyway? Especially a musical for kids?

What I’m drinking now: Coffee. Black. Out of my standard Phillips Motor Oil mug. No idea where it came from.

What I’m reading these days: Salvation on the Small Screen? 24 Hours of Christian Television, by Nadia Bolz-Weber. Nadia is a Lutheran minister who spent 24 hours straight watching TBN with friends. This is her report about the experience. It’s brilliant. Every writer has the experience of seeing a book on the shelf and thinking, Man, that’s a great idea. I could SO have written that book. But then you read it and think, Nope. He/She totally did a better job than I would have. I’ve had this experience with Nadia’s book and also with A.J. Jacobs’ The Year of Living Biblically. Which you should also read. Right now.

Last blog entry I read: This one on Cool Hunting about FlipBooks from Bob Books. Which look pretty cool, but are also a little pricey for a flip book.

Last email I received: An email from Amazon wanting me to “Kick-Start My Holidays” by buying stuff from them. I am not yet ready to kick-start my holidays, Amazon. Quit pressuring me. There will be no kicking and/or starting of holidays until I can at least smell the turkey. Sheesh.
