As the title phoenetically suggests, I’m going to lay off posting during this next week. That means that the next time you see me post a picture (because who reads the words, anyway?), it’ll most likely be almost a week from now.
What you should consider:
- Ricky Gervais has a podcast, and it’s hilarious.
- Yahoo! bought del.icio.us, both of which I find myself increasingly impressed with.
- Narnia will rock.
- I got a resume request from factor360 (but, it’s no CRESH).
- Toba Sojo is getting tape, a pen, and plastic silverware for his birthday.
- I wish I had British television AND American television.
I normally don’t quote scripture or talk about church that much, unless I’m making an ill-taken point, but I liked today’s Gospel. It had it’s share of slapstick and omninous. First off, I was confused because it’s the gospel of John and he’s talking about John (the Baptist). So, for a couple paragraphs, I was thinking, “Man, John sure has an ego, doesn’t he.” Then the Jews send priests and Fair-I-Sees to check him out.
FIS: Who are you?
John: I am not the Christ.
John: I just… I want to make it perfectly clear that I am NOT the Christ. John – write that down a couple times.
FIS: What, then? Are you Elijah?
John: No, I’m not.
FIS: Are you the Prophet?
John: No, I’m not.
FIS: Why don’t you just tell us who you are.
John: I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, `Make straight the way of the Lord,’ as the prophet Isaiah said.
FIS: AHAH! So, you’re Isaiah.
John: No. I am NOT Isaiah.
FIS: What, are you bugged?
John: No, I got a guy taking notes. Don’t put that part in, John.
FIS: Then you didn’t really answer my question, did you. You just gave us a quote.
John: Okay, you want some real info? There is one among you whom you do not recognize. He is the Christ. You must kill him.
FIS: Seriously? We should kill him?
John: No, I’m just kidding. John, don’t put that part in. We done here?
FIS: Yeah. We’ll just mark “Isaiah” in our book. No charges will be filed. Kill him… Not a bad idea.
John: Oh, no. I’ve made a huge mistake.
And that, friends, is verbatim.
