What I’m Thinking Right Now

Posted by Shelley on May 22, 2010 in Uncensored Shelley |

You didn’t ask for it but here it is :)

Mike bought some Ugly Dawg salsa. It is gluten free. Says so right on the back of the jar. We managed to eat 3/4′s of it just now. It’s dawg-gone good. Might be sending him out for some mo’ here in a minute.

Ummm…. AOL radio “totally 80′s” is about the best app my iPhone currently has going. PYT is on right now. Need I say more?

And did you know the word “awwwww” actually comes up in spell check on the iPhone? It has several more w’s in it btw, in case you are grammatically correct when it comes to these things. It also spell checks the word “ya’ll”. Which is “ya’ll” according to the iPhone. But really it is short for “you all” which should be “y’all”, at least that I was I learned in the previous century. I double checked this with the 5th grader in the house who actually has a (albeit 21st century) grammar teacher. She said “y’all” is correct. Which means the iPhone is wrong. Aren’t you glad you decided to read this far?

So there is this blog by the Christian author who is “pretty out there” which means, she basically just throws it out there kinda like me but she’s written a few books and actually has a “following”. She’s very genuine and honest and I have the utmost respect for her. Her latest is on “The Idol of Hurry.” I concur. Except I think most of the folks I know, including myself, are all about the idol of busy. Think about it, if you’re busy do you really have time to connect, bond or really, really care? You know the answer to this but I don’t blame you if you don’t answer. It’s a shame. But it’s the truth and I live, breathe and walk it out every day determined to change it. But that’s hard to do when the mind is willin’ but the spirit is weak.

Well, awwwwwwwwww…. not sure if that’s right not, b/c wordpress is not picking up on it… my kids are finishing up school this week. My son brought home his 5K memory book and I got out my daughter’s 5K memory book from 2004-2005. It is about the fourth of the size of his. Why do I mention this? For a variety of reasons but I think I will stop there. This deserves its very own blog entry.

Well, “99 Luft Balloons” just came on AOL radio and I think that is my cue to stop and listen to the wonderful lyrics of this song. Are they in German? and if so why I am listening to a German song on AMERICA online radio? good grief.

It’s all good now. “Jungle Love” is on. And you just can’t go wrong with Morris Day and the Time, I don’t care what decade you’re in. Oh-wee-oh-wi-oh.

Hey–thanks for mentioning the post. It’s funny. Last week, I talked about the idea of the book and had a bunch of comments and now, like, 50 people have bought the book that I can tell from my Amazon link…but the comments and traffic have been SO LOW on it…it’s like…we care…until we are forced to really think/change. Next week is all about the HOW…so…I appreciate you reading & linking! :)

Much love,
Anne

wow, Anne – thank you for commenting!

I was so all over the place in this blog entry last night! Your concept of the idol of hurry deserves it’s very own separate entry indeed! Thanks for reading. I always get something so meaningful from your blog and I really do appreciate your way of expressing ideas and thoughts that may be very worldly but are the very things we Christian folks need to address. You do such a great job – I’m just sayin’!
