Friday Jumbles

Alright bloggy are my thoughts for this week:

--In this, the final chapter of the Chronicles of Charmia, I would like to report to you all (because, of course, you care) that the last of the John Wayne toilet paper is now currently somewhere in the depths of my septic tank. And in the drawers beside each toilet??? My beloved Charmin. (sigh) I considered taking this Chronicles of Narnia analogy to another level, renaming characters with potty words, but alas, as I thought it out to its logical conclusion, it took me down a road for which I would inevitably have to apologize. And so I won't.

--While eating my mini wheats yesterday morning, I noticed a claim printed on the box that stated that it is "clinically shown to improve kids attentiveness by nearly 20%." Oh, whatever. How in the world did they come up with those results and how can they be proven? Don't you love random studies and the claims they make supported by rediculous percentages?

--Perhaps I am a bit narcissistic, but I am pretty sure that I am the only person who seems to get the shopping cart at Walmart that has the broken wheel.

--In the spirit of thoughts two and three above, I would like to assert that I get a cart with a broken wheel on approximately 81% of my trips to Walmart.

--I am still reflecting/chewing on all of my notes from Catalyst last week. As leaders we should make time to fully digest all of the information and inspiration on which we feed. To swallow it whole and consider it no more will never bring about personal growth.
--Leaders who do not continually learn and grow are like hood ornaments. They serve absolutely no purpose in their ministry/organization

--Lesson from last nights' episode of The Office: Spelling is everything. Astrid....Astird....hmmmmm.

--You must check out Eddie's blog post from yesterday. Two words: armpit hair.

--And finally, if you are going to simmer pot pourri on your stove so your home will smell nice while the realtor is showing it to a prospective buyer, you should turn on the burner underneath the pot rather than the burner in front of it. One of the seven wonders of the modern world is the fact that my house is still standing and not a sad, charred heap of good intentions.

At least you didn't almost blow yourself up. That is one good way to look at it.

I actually have burned down a kitchen...but it was with pierogies. Ahhh, pierogies. And hot, molten-hot, boiling oil.
