You didn't order the Metallic Pea?

i didn't know until just now that i missspelled 'championship vinyl' when i was creating the web address. i guess chapmionship vinyl works just as well.
on to bigger and maybe better things...

my sides are killing me. and it's not just the pilates. yesterday was one of a few days in a row where things have really been going pretty cool in the youth ministry. the kiddos had the day off of school and some of the girls invited me out to play miniature golf with them. you gotta love a job that includes mini golf as work. oh yeah, we did the bumperboats too. the biggest thing was that they had me laughing pretty much all day long. the comical highlight was when one of the girls turned a simple act of trying to open the door to in and out into an acrobatic act complicated by having two sodas in hand. it's a you-had-to-be-there kind of thing, but it def ranks up there with rockstar putting lime juice in his eyes because his brother told him it would feel good.

this past weekend i went to the l.a. auto show with a few of my kids. i'm not really into cars all that much but this was really impressive. the biggest thing that i noticed was how many cars a) look alike and b) seem to resemble legos that i played with back in the day. there were def some sweet rides in there, inc a maybach that had a full size recliner in the back seat. the kids were most impressed by the car that had a working fridge inside. the coolest thing was the fact that i cold afford some of the cars there. weird feeling. anyways, i'm in car shopping mode now. i went and test drove some stuff last night, and everything you have heard about car salesmen is so true. i laughed last night when one salesmen actually started banging on the inside of the car to show me how sturdy it was. another lady couldn't seem to grasp that i wasn't willing to test drive a jeep liberty when i wanted to take a wrangler out. evidently she wasn't willing to move the other cars out of the way so i could do so. seriously, do you want to make a sale or not? anyways... it was frustrating, and i actually let myself get suckered in to talking with one of the guys about going through with buying the car. no worries, i didn't buy anything yet. i think i'm going to wait a few weeks and do some more research. esp since my top pick is out of the mix now. the 3 finalists now are the nissan xterra, mitsubishi outlander and for some odd reason the volkwagen golf. we'll see.

what else... i started listening to christian hardcore music a little while back, and i think i'm getting past the initial 'can't understand what these guys are screaming' phase to really enjoy the energy that they put out. clarity aside, i've got to give props to any guy that can proclaim their faith at the top of their lungs.

well, i've got a lot on the calendar that i've got to get to.

one love, one heart

"Help me if you can I'm feeling down" - I also think I must be lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him on the golf course yesterday. Now this is strange because usually I see him in the supermarket.

Honest really, last time I saw him there he was right in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new lcd tv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a lcd tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger.

Then I'm gonna go home, put ma dancin' suit on, munch me some uppers and freak out to that maaaaaaaaad surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on ma lcd tv .

How cool is that boy?

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
