History lesson

I recently was chit chatting with my friend Lindsey about Kirk Cameron, and what a great show Growing Pains was, and how lousy it is that old Kirk has turned out to be this crazy right wing fundamentalist, and we had this exchange:

L:  remember how his character had a friend named boner?
the 80s, man
erections had to be called boners then too right?
like, that didn't happen after growing pains, right?
Me omg
surely not
i think boner has been around a long time
i'm gonna go with since neanderthals
L:  yes
i would agree
Me:  since they finished dinner one night around a fire
and someone held a bone up to his crotch
and they all went
"heh heh"
L:  exactly

I need to have a party immediately

...solely so I can use THIS for the invitation:

So good!  Many more corgi gems, here

Jesus and donuts

I really enjoy being friended by folks on Facebook with whom I went to, say, elementary school.  Or took a canoe trip with in the 9th grade.  Or met one time while volunteering at an animal shelter in college.  You know the type - you barely know this person, but they friend you, and you go with it and then they update ALL. THE. TIME.  My personal fave of these in my own news feed is a gent with whom I've not spoken since the 6th grade.  He posts multiple times a day, and all his statuses concern either the Lord or pastries.  Occasionally he throws in some platitude of his own he's dreamed up.  Here are just a few recent examples!

Therefore, accept each other just as Christ has accepted you so that GOD will be given glory. - Romans 15:7 - Happy Wednesday!

Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness will find life, righteousness, and honor. - Proverbs 21:21

If someone breaks your heart just punch them in the face.
DONUTS IN THE BREAKROOM!!! Someone up there is really looking out for me!!! :D #YesYesYesYesYes

Always be yourself, this world has no room for copies.
My boss surprised me with a donut this morning........ #YesYesYesYesYes :)

Remember the past, plan for the future, but live for today, because yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come. #EverydayIsAGiftFromGOD

Looking for that white and red box to be in the break room. Hoping for that white and red box to be in the break room. Wishing for that white and red box to be in the break room. JACKPOT!!! :) lol. #GettingMeADonut

I seriously love this guy.  I also hope he brings me a donut, like a good servant of the Lord.

Another great bus convo

Last week I was taking the bus home and had a most educational conversation with a young lady of around 4 years old:

Child: The sun is going away!
Me: That's right!  It's night time, so the sun is setting.
Child: It's going away so it can come back again.
Me: Yes, that's right.  You know a lot about the sun!
Child: Look at that!  (points at light overhead)
Me: Okay, I'm looking at it.
Child: That's like the sun, but it's not the sun. 
Me: I think I understand.
Child: That's all I know about the sun.

SUN FACTS.  I'm telling you, you learn the best things on the bus

Sam on wishes

Sam does not like it when I wish on birthday candles, or eyelashes, or coins in fountains, because I won't tell him the thing for which I wished.  Everyone knows that if you tell, the wish won't come true.  However, some years ago Sam came up with what he thinks is a really foolproof system for how to make it okay for a person to tell their wish:

I find this to be somewhat flawed in terms of logic, and do not do this, which really burns his biscuits. 

He also does not use his own system. 

Corgi butts

Comedian Paul Scheer recently Tweeted a photo of the best bumper sticker ever, with the caption "Really?! How big is the market for this bumper sticker?"

The answer to your query, Mr. Scheer, is VERY BIG INDEED.

Corgi break, for pugs

Does this look like pure bliss, or what?!  Buried in a pile of pups!

Look at all that joy!

Hi guys...

Can I come in?

I've been sleeping on the blog as of late.  Will stop doing that.  Forgive me?  Love you!

Sandwich police!

I found this photo of a police car from Sandwich, MA, and Sam LOVES it.  He is crazy about sandwiches of all kinds and is always preaching about ways one can screw up making them.  So, I'm taking his comments and turning them into his very own meme (which, let's face it, probably already exists somewhere on the interwebs)!

He's got a lot of rules.  This is only the beginning, so more to come from the Sandwich Police.

Sam Thoughts

Sam complains that I don't post about him enough, so I am starting a new recurring feature called Sam Thoughts.  Here are some thoughts he shared just last night.

I hope so too, my love!
