Party On Dude!


When I was in college I used to be a regular at dollar Tuesdays at Edwards Cinema in Irvine. Many of us would go every Tuesday since Wednesdays were always light days academically at good ole' Christ College. There was a time when Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure was playing and I went about four weeks in a row. I loved that movie. I still think it is pretty good. Some of the best work from Mr. Roboto Keanu Reeves. The reason I bring this up is that my Seminary class that I am taking right now is called "Christian Ethics and Culture". So far we have been studying the philosophy of ethics with a lot of time spent studying the ancient philosophers. I have been hip deep in Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Mill, Kant, Nietzsche etc. Boy those guys know how to write big, long, drawn out sentences. YIKES! So we have spent many hours with Socrates and I can't help thinking about how Bill S. Preston esq. and Ted Theodore Logan go back in time to get people from history for their project. Something was definately amiss at the Circle K. One of the unfortunate travelers is ole' Socrates. Now Bill and Ted aren't the sharpest crayons in the box and they call him So-crates. Now all through class I am thinking about So-crates and not Socrates. That movie has tainted philosophy for me forever. So here I am in class and I don't think there is a soul in my class who shares this nugget of info so I am relegated to having a party in my head. It is still a party, but not as fun. I wonder if "Wild Stallions" can play for my ordination. Party On Dude!!

In other news, I have an MRI today for my ankle. Yeah, I am moving at the speed of insurance, then off to the specialist next week. So nothing new there. This just in: The CT scan shows I have a brain.... and good sinuses. Next for me with the ENT is a new sleep study. I can't wait to be hooked up to about a million wires again and have someone watch me sleep in that green haze of night vision. Now that is a job that I don't want. On the Adoption front: I have filled out most of the paperwork. What a chore, but it is done. We will send it in next week and then wait for processing (about 2 weeks) after it is processed and there are no red flags, we can get fingerprinted and signed up for our class. That's about it from here. Talk to you later. Be Excellent to Everyone!!
