And Then Who Knows?

  • Snarky Sister and I enter elevator. Snarky Sister points to the sign that reads "Capacity: 4000 lbs." She turns to me and intones solemnly: "I think you have to get off." Boom. Roasted.
  • Mormons can't eat coffee or chocolate? No wonder they endorse polygamy. Something's gotta make up for the absence of chocolate... *
  • I ask the chicklets "What do you kids want for lunch?" Sassy Brother responds: "Food." Spicy Sister: "Naww, we had that yesterday."
  • The sibs and I play "Radio Roulette" in the car. In which the person elected DJ flips through the radio channels trying to find something that they and the others in the car all want to listen to. Songs like "Cooler than Me," "Rude Boy," "Need You Now," and "Rolling in the Deep" are all automatic: "switch to the next channel ASAP." Not that they're all necessarily bad songs, but yes, my peeps, there can be too much of a good thing.
  • Go into the world and preach the Gospel to every Hipster. (The Good News? You probably haven't heard of it.) He who believes and is baptized shall be saved, He who does not believe shall become mainstream.
  • Playing Radio Roulette in the car this morning, and in the absence of all acceptable songs, in a move of desperation, I turned to the classical music channel. The announcer lady was speaking in that voice all classical music radio announcers use; the voice that sounds like it's wafting through a thick velvet curtain-a soothing effect and yet at the same time rather disconcerting. Anywhoodles, I popped in just as the lady was intoning: "from The Planets Suite by Gustav Holst, my personal favorite is Mercury, but we'll be listening to Jupiter." Finna. I eagerly listened to Jupiter until the anthem that is used to create "O God Beyond All Praising" started playing. Then, I cranked up the volume, rolled down the windows, and soared down the highway. Bless you, Classical FM 99.5.
  • There's nothing like a healthy sense of sass. Our family's snarkiness level has skyrocketed recently (see above thoughts), and everyone has benefited. Truly. The constant banter whets our wits. And yesterday I had a four-hour sass sesh with friends. Nothing like it. It feeds my soul, and plus also the Quotebook is always hungry for spicy material.
  • Our Adoration Chapel has new carpet, and it has roses on it. Total win? I'm thinkin' yes.
  • Best Thing About Summer #453: Edge of Glory dance parties in the car.
  • Don't search for Jesus in far lands-He is not there. He is close to you; He is with you. Just keep the lamp burning and you will always see Him. Keep on filling the lamp with all these little drops of love, and you will see how sweet is the Lord you love.--Mother Teresa
  • Seussical the Musical is one of my faves. Finna. The end.
