Hi guys! Just a quick note to let you know that for the next few days I won’t be blogging too much. I rather completely munched up a nerve in my right hand, which I now have to keep on ice and try not to use. I hurt my hand writing, of all things. I do a ton of writing at our kitchen table, which is …. well, this:
I slump in the chair on the left like I’m Joe Spineless Wonder, keep my forearms pressed hard against the edge of the marble table-top, and day after day stay there for so long that … well, that now I’ve apparently crushed some nerve that runs all the way from my right hand to my right pectoral muscle, if you can stand the anatomical continuity of it all, which as of right now I totally can’t.
Stupid nerves. When you need them they’re nowhere to be found, and when you don’t need them, they’re causing you major pain and making you keep your hand on ice.
So no Pastor Bob tomorrow (mounting Bob’s posts is a weird amount of work), and nothing more from me for … I dunno. Actually, I think it’s only going to be two days. So mostly it’s just no Pastor Bob tomorrow. The reason for which I certainly did want to explain.
Two quick things before I pop some more Tylenol (wait … it’s Advil), jam my hand back into the bowl of ice, and see what other loser movies are available on Netflix:
The softcover edition of my book UNFAIR: Why the “Christian” View of Gays Doesn’t Work is STILL ON SALE for only $11.51. The regular price is $15.99. I have no idea why Amazon put UNFAIR on sale (and don’t care: I get paid the same either way), or when they’ll take it off sale. But as of this writing it’s still (the odd price of) $11.51. UNFAIR is also available as a Kindle book and a NookBook; you can also buy directly from me an autographed softcover copy, inscribed according to your directions—with which I also throw in, for free, one of my [autographed and dated] awesome business cards (These copies of UNFAIR are the regular price, because I already bought them; even as I wincingly type this, they’re in my office.)
Also, if you used to belong to ThruWay Christians, and haven’t heard, we’ve changed our name to Unfundamentalist Christians. We’d love to have you “like” our new Unfundamentalist Christians Facebook page.
Let’s see, what else? Oh: if you think of it, send me your questions, etc., via my Ask John page. That way I don’t have to write you back and ask if you’d like me to answer on my blog whatever you wrote me. It totally saves me that permissions step.
Oh: and please tell your friends to check out my blog, and (assuming they like my work, of course), to “Like” my Facebook page. That’s pretty much the only way I have of getting new people to find out that I’m out here, doing my thing. Thanks for that help. You guys are great to me that way.
And there we have it! Hope you guys are all having a wonderful weekend. Thanks for all the great comments you’re always leaving on my blog. (Did you check out those insane Bad Pastor stories from yesterday’s When Bad Pastors Happen to Good Weddings?! Freakin’ unbelievable! I guess there are a whole bunch of pastors out there who think funerals are a winning time to evangelize, what with people just then feeling so vulnerable and all. I hear about one more story about a pastor that cretinous, and I may just give it up and go pagan. Not that there’s anything wrong with that!)
Love to you guys.
