Get Real

Get Real May 6, 2006

I just noticed that my last two posts were awfully cheerful. This must stop; I cannot continue perpetuating the illusion that the world is a cheery place.

My commitment to angst is why one of my favorite companies of all time is this one. If I had my way the entire office would be decorated with their products.

Here’s one for today, particularly as my sermon from last Sunday used an illustration about the arduous journey of the Pacific Sockeye Salmon:

"I really, really, really liked this article. Thank you. ♥"

    Oh,! I love their BitterSweets (for anti-Valentine’s Day parties… so sarcastic, so perfect for making better poetry with candy hearts).

    I met a couple who attend a Presbyterian church in town. They recognized the name Calvary Baptist from the recent Post article, and thought you sounded like a breath of fresh air, refreshingly open and candid; in other words, from the brief bit they saw, they like you.

    Heehee. Those remind me of the “Deep Thoughts” by Jack Handy calendars – I like “It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.” They look really nice and happy, and then you look closer and they crack you up!

    Then again there’s the poster in a local store, showing a frog halfway down a crane’s gullet, nonetheless choking the bird with its little front feet.

    The caption: DON’T EVER GIVE UP.
