I’m feeling good. My immune system is finally back in gear so I can eat normal (microwaved food) again. Although I managed to add Cup O’ Noodle to my diet in the interim period.

Ran into snow today. The fortunate thing about typically getting to work 50 minutes early means that on days with bad weather I usually still make it on time. I’ve only been late to this job once by ten minutes and that was easy enough to make up on lunch break.

I’m keeping busy with lots of potential web projects. I’ve got MyTwitter that I’ve been working on and I’m also helping out with two other projects — one with my church and another one w/ some guys from Saturdays. It’s good times. Once I get a laptop I’ll be able to do even a little bit more hopefully, but this is still a hope and not quite reality.

Managed to sit in on a conversation regarding theology today. I know the term “Federal Vision” though I don’t have any grasp of the underlying theological concepts at this point. I intend to look at it more at some point, but that day is not today. Plus, due to either intellectual laziness or a more keen interest in other topics (punk rock, coding, etc.) I really am not all that interested. I’ll look into it a bit at some point though.

If I ever do read up on Federal Vision, these are the first resources I will check: Wikipedia: Federal Vision and Federal Vision and Theopedia: Federal Vision.

LOLCat Bible Translation
Posted by on January 26th, 2008, at 6:29pm

In a humorous bit of sacrelige, some crazy people are translating the Bible into LOLCat. Behold, the LOLCat Bible.

I can already hear you asking: yes, this is for real. No, I don’t think

they’re trying for accuracy.

e.g. God = Ceiling Cat

John 3:16 –

“So liek teh Ceiling Cat lieks teh ppl lots and he sez ‘Oh hai I givez u me only kitteh and ifs u beleevs in him u wont evr diez no moar, k?”

Excerpt from the Lord’s Prayer (Teh Ceiling Cat Prayer) –

Giv us dis day our dalee cheezburger.
And furgiv us for makin yu a cookie, but eateding it.

Campaigning in Spartanburg, South Carolina, Friday, the former president [Bill Clinton] brushed aside suggestions his wife [Hillary] would prove to be a divisive nominee for the Democratic Party, pointing out how she has successfully worked with Republicans in the Senate — including one of the current GOP presidential candidates.

“She and John McCain are very close,” Clinton said. “They always laugh that if they wound up being the nominees of their party, it would be the most civilized election in American history, and they’re afraid they’d put the voters to sleep because they like and respect each other.”

This pretty much says why I wouldn’t vote for either of them. Too similar.

Update: Obama’s crushing victory in South Carolina will keep things interesting. It probably adds additional fuel to Edwards’ trip towards the exit.

Juno was awesome. 5/5. Serious topic, serious actors, biting sarcasm, and excellent music. Probably my favorite in-theatre viewing since Stardust (and I saw that twice). So yeah. Juno.
