it figures...

Bright, sunny Saturday, so I decide to move some boxes to the new house. And, my friend John comes to meet me so he can give me a quote on some minor repairs. We go out into the back yard, and what happens? Door locks automatically! Yep, that's right -- I got locked out of my new house on the first day!
Fotunately, John had his phone, so we called a locksmith. One hour and $90 later, I'm back inside.

something not quite right...

I loooove Rachel's yogurt, so I stopped to check out the sign @ Whole Foods - and then I did the math.
4 for $5 means each one is $1.25, right? (fortunately, they're on sale for $0.79 at HEB this week... ) If you can read it, in the corner it says reg price $1.19 - you *save* 6 cents. um.... no.
Maybe I should tell the manager? :)

Finally, someone who both believes in Gd and understands evolution! A Baptist blogger has written a nice piece about why religion and evolution do not have to be mutually exclusive. I'm not sure I agree with him 100%, but at least he makes the case for open-mindedness.

All I have to say is, Thank you! I'm pleased to see that rational thought exists somewhere in this country!

For another view on evolution vs. creationism, see this Family Guy clip. :)

A few days late...

but you'll notice the Bush Countdown Clock is GONE from the sidebar! He's GONE! :) hoooray!

Pope 2; Reasonable Thought, 0

He's at it again -- already! Just one week after reinstating a Holocaust-denying Bishop (and then releasing a statement about how we must all work together to make sure the Shoah doesn't happen again), the Pope has now elevated to Bishop an Austrian priest who says that the Harry Potter books are spreading Satanism, and that Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans to wipe out the hedonism (and the abortion clinics) there.

If there's one thing that was drummed into me as a child, it was "Question Authority." Please tell me there are Catholics in the world who don't agree with this man? ... Who have more sense than this? ... Who, even though it might be sacrilegious, are willing to question the authority of the Pope to do these things?
