maybe if i look at the world upside down it'll all look better.
do you think god ever gets tired of us giving him the same stuff over and over?
there are no more fumes, and the car has sputtered to a stop...so maybe if i look at the world upside, and ask god what he thinks of all this...

Eyes looking almost through my head
Fingers probing tenderness
Hit so hard, fierce echo and shake
Hold my head to still inner quake
Prolonged moan of surprise
Just how exactly did I manner that
Five cups of caffine a day habit of late
Too tired to wake, too tired to sleep
A deprivation of sorts
An indulgence of sorts
Though they say I've smiled more of late
Random bits of song escape
Less frazzled laughter
The jade begins to fade
Clicked to PBS
Students interviewing successful people
On how they found success
Listen to that inner voice
Follow different paths
You just know when it's right
Stable and secure don't really go with take a chance
this just might be it
The Today show featured Vermont today
This evening featured finding one's calling

Go back through one's archives and find "favorites" for the following categories:
Link 1 must be about family
Link 2 must be about friends
Link 3 must be about you yourself
Link 4 must be about something you love
Link 5 can be about anyone or anything you choose.
Link 1: Barbie and Ken
This was a post my wife wrote, but still one of my favorites.
Link 2: A Prayer
For my friend.
Link 3: The Outing of My Discernment
Where I've been and still heading
Link 4: First Homily
I don't love religion per say, but the sharing of one's faith.
Link 5: YouTube Fun
Choose this one for the joy of laughter.
(1) Grab the nearest book that has 123 pages in it
(2) Go to page 123
(3) Find the fifth sentce
(4) Type fifth sentence and next three
(5) Tag whomever (San, Lee, Murat, ALT)
The book I grabbed was Leo Tolstoy's, "The Kingdom of God Is Within You".
And it reads...

"Imagine living in a city with the country's highest rate for violent crime and the second-highest unemployment rate. As an added kicker you need more Superfund dollars allocated to your city to clean up contaminated toxic waste sites than just about any other metro." -Kurt Badenhausen, Forbes.com (Feb 11)
Did you know there's a thing called a Misery Index - an economic indicator??? There doesn't appear to be a Happy Index, but there is a Happy Planet Index - an envirnomental indicator.
So in light of places to live, check out this website: http://www.findyourspot.com/ (and if you're curious, here's my top three: Burlington, VT - Montpelier, VT - Northampton, MA)

Part of me is scared about getting too excited about Tuesday, because the let-down will really suck. This company is one of those places where you use words like "dream job." That if God is only calling me to Vermont, then this job is a safe harbor, a good place to grow, a place of intergity. But if the call is to more, than this job becomes a place to polish skills that will help me be a better priest.
Well, gotta run, the wife needs the computer and I have studying to do.

I was told I'll know 1-2days after the technical interview the outcome...here's to hoping I have enough experience.

...I've been working my butt off...
...I've been dealing with some personal stuff: what I'll say is even careful people can get stung by ID theives...
...I have my very first Vermont job interview tomorrow for an awesome company; I really hope I can nail the interview...
...gotta go prep for the interview.

|My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is:|
Her Noble Excellency JS the Unctuous of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch
Get your Peculiar Aristocratic Title
My, my, I ummm, can't even pronounce my title :-) But, that seems fitting; leaves me room to grow.
And in case you to wonder at the word "unctuous" - from dictionary.com: characterized by excessive piousness or moralistic fervor, esp. in an affected manner; excessively smooth, suave, or smug.
