Friday Free Write

Trying something new today where I just write, with no agenda, and without stopping. So whatever comes into my head will go into this post. So here we go.

Mizzou to the SEC is gonna happen, it was even on the SEC website yesterday for about 20 minutes before it got taken down. Turns out somebody is posting too soon.

I am at work right now. Covering the front desk on Friday morning. As I type I just got a phone call and was called “Ma’am”…..not the first time it has happened, and did that call get dropped? Maybe….ok, no it didn’t, but I was sure to lower my voice for the rest of the call so the caller could sit in their tension. My hope is they still thought I was a woman who’s voice gets deeper and deeper.

Speaking of deep voices the call I just got! Wow! Impressive voice, I think that guy might be about to go John Wayne on somebody.

I got new contacts recently. I am not a fan in the slightest. I have worn contacts for over half my life now and have had the same brand the entire time. They quit making my brand of contacts. I don’t know who “they” are, but I want to complain to them so much right now.

Got distracted by an email for a minute, then posted a comment on Bryan Allain’s post about his Twitter hashtag #lessexcitingbandnames. My favorite he came up with “Safe Cab for Average Looking Girl”

Phone call. And another email. I better wrap this up.

I was trying to find a picture to post at the top of this new Friday Free Write I got going on, but changed my mind when they all looked bush league.

Question: Which do you like more salamanders or scorpions? And Why?


Seen Now Shared IX

The internet has been on fire this week. I think that will be proven with today’s Seen Now Shared.

Seen Now Shared is partially inspired by Knox McCoy’s “Monday Morning Meatloaf”. I was gonna share some of his stuff from this past Monday, but you should check it all out right here. It was some very tasty meatloaf this week.

Here is an article on Life In Student Ministry from a youth volunteer. I love to hear what volunteers are experiencing, because without them Youth Ministry doesn’t happen.

6th grade boys are hilarious. Proven here, at Why Is Marko.

Pretty interesting info graphic on how students use technology right here. Also, good to be aware of.

While Students are our subject you should check out this YouTube channel from one of my favorite students in all of the world right here. Here is a video preview of his 1st Crucial Tutorial if you don’t want to make the jump quite yet.

The Good Greatsby did it again with his breaking news about a Scrabble competition gone wrong. Check it out here. Also, I am not very political, but the most politics I read about are at The Good Greatsby, and it is because of things like this.

See what it is like to work at Facebook, Google, and Twitter right here.

Speaking of Facebook. I unfriended quite a few people awhile back. JoeRob did so for the same reasons I did. See why here.

With my new leap into the blogging world I have been reading problogger and tentblogger a lot. Right here is a good article from problogger on making your blog the event of the year. I am still not confident enough in my abilities to do that. Maybe my blog is like a small social get together where all the awkward people hang out.

Alice Cooper teaches Bible Class.

Bowling Green Just got a lot cooler in my book.

Thrifty Dad.
Well Played.
That is a lot of excrement.
Eye did not see that coming....get it?

Thanks for stopping by! Hopefully SNS has made your Thursday a little better.

Which gif at the end is your favorite? Mine was the awkward news camera shots, but it is now the Stanford student. How did he get into Stanford anyway?

Quick Thoughts

1. Welcome to my new set up. I have been hearing for awhile how WordPress is where it is at when it comes to blogging. If I am going to do this for real, I figured I better make the switch.

2. Some stuff when it comes to posting will take some time to get used to.

3. Over the past 3 days I have watched 3 Mizzou QB’s playing football on national television. 2 former (Gabbert, Daniel), 1 Current (Franklin). It has been cool to see so many Mizzou players in the NFL.

4. While watching Monday Night Football, (Sorry World Series), I learned that Michael Oher has moved from left tackle to right tackle. That is devastating…what is the movie “The Blind Side” good for anymore?

5. Miriam’s birthday is this weekend. Hopefully she likes her gifts.

6. This week’s Seen Now Shared is gonna be loaded with a lot of goods.

7. I am posting a video here on quick thoughts today. Turns out it is from one of my favorite High School students from Missouri. He created this genius YouTube channel. I am glad I found it! Click here to see his entire page.

What do you think of my new digs? I think I can get used to WordPress.
