They say that the recipe for Sprite is lemon and lime, but I tried to make it at home, there's more to it than that.

kind of a random day, good, but really random. here are some of the things that have crossed my mind today.

why am i listening to bon jovi... again?

if you own a pizza place that happens to be on a street that will be closed for a parade, then no, you will not be able to deliver on that day.

i don't like country music, so i better find another way to categorize nickel creek.

if there is any official function for ministers, there must be a speaker. no speaker, no event.

every speaker must have an introduction.

every introduction must list off the things that qualify them to speak.

we had a luncheon the other day at pepperdine, and the 'host' listed the qualifications of the guy that was going to say the prayer for lunch.

i wish i needed to be introduced. my introduction would be, "speaking to us today is d.j. iverson, he's the youth minister from simi valley. he has a degree in graphic design and he's probably the only one here wearing jeans."

for the first time in a long time i am looking forward to the rainy season.

mountain dew is underrated.

so are hot tamales.

i'm 25 and i have a full time job yet i still enjoy getting care packages from my mom.

we had a dinner three weeks ago here at the church and i left some pots and pans here. we didn't notice until yesterday.

'taming a liger: unexpected spiritual lessons from napoleon dynamite' may be the greatest book i've ever read.

the great gatsby is definitely the worst.

lord of the rings IS better than star wars.

costco (or sam's club for the midwest) is a great place to do some people watching.

who needs five pounds of mayonaise?

what is the best way to send salsa to someone in another country?

the way i feel about 70's music is probably how most teenagers feel about 80's music.

old people always pay in cash.

if the retail value is $80, and you're trying to sell it in a grocery store parking lot for $20, no you are not cutting me a deal, you are trying to sell me stuff i don't need and/or want. and you wearing a suit and tie with running shoes doesn't help either.

well, that's about all i have time to ramble about today. things are pretty nuts around here, which shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that knows me, or anything about youth ministry.

one love, one heart.

This is Stephen McBroom. I am glad to hear that things are going great for you. This world needs youth ministers like you. I am living in Texas and work for a Production Company, Lonestar Film & Video Inc. I create broadcast graphics, a bunch of 3-D designing, and a whole lot of box designs. Anyways, just wanted to say hi and I am happy that you have found such a rewarding career. God Bless and talk to ya later.
