Well, I spent a week at TPBC doing the A-team work. That was real fun. We got to go up and sit looking at the stars at the ball diamond twice. I played and got real good at playing ping-pong. One of the quite interesting things I never would have guessed I would have done is 1. learn how to play Yu-gi-oh. A pretty weird game but not too bad. and secondly I learned how to play basketball. It’s not like I didn’t know how to play before, but I haven’t played a real (real is a loose term ok?) game of basketball in years. I did alot better than the last time I played basketball I’m pretty sure since the reason I wouldn’t play it ever is because I stunk like you wouldn’t believe. I’m still not that good because I can’t make too many shots but I’m not too bad. It seems that at a certain point of my maturing from kid to near-adult my senses, acuracy, and muscularity have heightened making it feel like I’m more elvish than before. By the way that’s what I compared it to because of what happens to Eragon in the books by Christopher Paolini (that might be wrong spelling).
Anyway I ended up doing those things on Friday after getting really bored out of my mind because I couldn’t find anyone on the a-team that was doing anything fun except for the people playing basketball. I also managed to bloody Danny’s lip during basketball (on accident of course) because I didn’t see him and I leaned left to run that way and slammed my head into his chin.
I was sorry (not nearly as sorry as I would have been if it were someone else, but sorry nonetheless).
All in all it was a great weekend.

and an article that’s freakin awesome for you to read and contemplate till next week.

These are too good not to post. They’re not quotes but they’re one liners that I couldn’t pass up and I’m not going to hang on to the e-mail till I post them one at a time, so enjoy while I’m gone. Maybe you can read one a day or something.

1. Birds of a feather flock together … and crap on your car.

2. There’s always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to lookfor it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don’t hurt.

3. When I’m feeling down, I like to whistle. It makes the neighbor’s dog run to the end of his chain and gag himself.

4. If you can’t be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

5. Don’t assume malice for what stupidity can explain.

6. A penny saved is a government oversight.

7. The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

8. The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat are really good friends.

9. The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement.

10. He who hesitates is probably right.

11. If you think there is good in everybody, you haven’t met everybody.

12. If you can smile when things go wrong, you have someone in mind to blame.

13. The sole purpose of a child’s middle name is so he can tell when he’s really in trouble.

14. Did you ever notice: When you put together “THE” and “IRS,” it spells “THEIRS.

I couldn’t decide whether to post this on The Loudmouth, but I just decided to post it here especially since I can’t upload pictures at Townhall.
Anyway, I like this not because I’m unhappy that the president vetoed the stem cell research bill, but that this is the first bill he’s vetoed, thus the emergency box. Before I even read this I was joking with my dad about the president practicing up so he’ll be in veto-writing shape when it came.

Till next post.

Woo Hoo! Here comes A-team!
This Monday I’ll be off for a week of funness at Twin Peaks, being an A-team member for the Jr. High week. Unfortunately this means I have to put up with Sarah and her airheaded friends, but It’s not all that bad lol.

I wrote a post detailing a little better what I’m going to say here but my internet filter blew it out of the web so, I’ll sum it up. I take notes as I do my Bible reading. The things I write down aren’t usually all that great, but occasionally I write something that is really good and is pretty good insight (At least it seems that way to me) and seems like something that I ought to share. So, I’ve decided that I’m going to go through my Bible reading notes and find some excerpts and publish them here. Of course this won’t be anytime real soon since I have a full two weeks of camping at Twin Peaks, but after that I’m going to have to try and get that going.
Hopefully I’ll get a chance to update my blog in between weeks, but we’ll see, I may not even be coming back in between if I get a place to stay while I’m up there. In any case I’m going to Max’s house this weekend too, so starting tomorrow I’m gonna go have alot of fun stuff to tend to.

Till next post. (which would hopefully be the next time I see a computer)

I haven’t been updating this blog that much and I have a good reason too! I haven’t done anything worth blogging about! Mostly just delivering phonebooks, but besides that, the reason for this post is just to say that I’ve thought of something that will provide some “blog fodder” as Chandler calls it.
I have been reading through the new testament and taking notes while doing it. Just personal notes nothing really great, but while doing it I have written some things that might be worthy of blogging and so I’m going to post some excerpts from my Bible reading notes for you to read and (hopefully) comment about. Right now however it is after midnight and I have to get up early so I’ll be hitting the hay and try to get a post up tomorrow with the first one.

Till next post.

I updated the links to the right —>
Also, notice the new link (not The Loudmouth one)
But the one below it.
It’s a really great blog, fun to read!
I put below mine because it’s so good that mine needs a little more publicity so that I can hopefully compete with this guy’s lol
I really like how he writes.

Till next post.
