Cheating on my blog April 29. 2009
You know I love blog posts that inform you that no posts have been made to the blog in a while and that the author is totally sorry about it. Well, this is one such post but I'm really not that sorry about it. I've been having a wonderful time acclimating to the world here in NYC and really just haven't had time to post stuff. I will be making soap again soon so if you are here for that... stay tuned.
Here's a taste:
God of Destruction
"Hear this word, you fat cows on Mount Samaria,
you women who oppress the poor and crush the needy
and say to your husbands, "Bring us some drinks!" "
What a ride this week has been: from temperature swings of 50 degrees, finding out America tortures, to the PCUSA once again voting against inclusion. It all seems so tumultuous but then again that's what Spring is all about. We are changing seasons. We are moving from the cold introversion and self-reflection of winter to the warmth of rebirth and community. As I was laying in the sun basking in this new found change in the weather, I came to realize something about my theology that was missing. For all of this new Spring life to appear, something needs to be destroyed first. God is a god of destruction. At first this sounded blasphemous to my uber-liberal-god-is-all-love ears but the more I meditated on it and upon the prophet Amos, which I had been reading this week, I came to find peace and a sense of joy in God breaking things we hold to be unchanging facts. God destroyed death in the resurrection of Christ. God overturned life and walked with us. God destroyed the power of sin.

) that suggests workouts based on questions you answer. It even gives you a meal plan if you want one or you can just track your food intake. I'm still waiting to find a catch for it being free but it hasn't popped up. They must make all their money off of ads, which don't really interest me.

The Job Search Begins August 3. 2008
In preparation for the "background" checks that the jobs are going to do for me, I've googled myself. It's actually kinda funny how old some of the stuff that shows up is. I think a big bonus is actually an article on this site. When I wrote Asterisk on OpenWRT, quite a few tech websites picked up the article and plastered it all over the Internet. My server actually went down (I was running it off a DSL connection) and I had to move it to a few T1s.
I can't wait to have my first NYC job!
