My Holy Hangover

First off: Mad props to Shawn for the term Holy Hangover.
So what is a Holy Hangover? It’s what we in the ministry affectionately call that feeling we get on Monday Morning. Especially after a day like yesterday:

  • 1:30 – going to bed b/c we are at the beach and get to sleep in tomorrow morning!
  • 7:30 – Up and packing
  • 8:30 – Breakfast
  • 9 – Lead worship for last weekend retreat session
  • 10:30 – Say goodbye and pack up
  • 11:30 – Grab a bite to eat
  • 12 – On the road!…with 2 kids..ugh….
  • 4:10 – Backing trailer into the driveway…Orange Beach -> Baton Rouge in 4 hrs! BOOYAH!
  • 4:15 – Pulling out of the driveway in Rae’s car
  • 4:38 – Youth group! (8 mins late)
  • 6:20 – Wrapping up Youth (20 mins late but was so worth it! Amazing youth tonight!)
  • 6:30 – Changed and off to downtown
  • 7 – Arrived at Whitney’s Celebration Service for 10 Years at First Pres.
  • 8:10 – Hugging and goodbyes
  • 9 – Eating lunch…dinner…um…whatever
  • 9:30 – Check emails put on Psych! It was a Bollywood theme!
  • 11 – Heading to bed. Probably one of the earliest in months…years?

And voila: Monday Morning’s Holy Hangover.

How are you feeling this morning?


The Speed of the Internet!

Minutes…hours…after Kanye West showed how much of a ass he is on MTV VMAs (sorry G rated audiences that’s probably the nicest way to describe that jerk) this pops up on youTube! Hilarious. Stunning. Speedy.


SYTYCD Music Takeaway

It’s summertime and that’s when Rae and I endulge our reality TV appetite with Wipeout, The Ultimate Fighter, and of course the GREATEST reality show competition there is: SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE! I dare you to disagree with me but that will be another discussion.This discussion will revolve around one of the many aspects I love about the show: the music!

So each week, I’ll list my favorite new songs that I’ve found watching our favorite reality show! This week there were 4:

Falling Slowly24 hoursBEP

  1. Falling Slowly by The Frames – such a great track! Mesmerizing!
  2. 24 Hours (Ashton Shuffle A-bomb mix) by Terry Poison – quirky, crazy, weird, I love it!
  3. Imma Be by the Black Eyed Peas – sorry the Peas are a guilty pleasure! Can they do wrong?
  4. Violento (Up Mix) by Bailango! – not sure if I got this right, couldn’t find them but a gritty Spanish tango!!

The Office goes Broke

The Office FINALLY puts to rest this awful rabbit trail of the Michael Scott Paper Company. I mean seriously, was there a doubt that it wasn’t going to end this way? Oh wait…no there wasn’t:

The Scranton office starts floundering and Wallace boots Charles so Michael can return. Yay, smiles and what a wasted story line.

Ugh…at least now we can get back to life as “normal” for our Scranton branch of misfits! Make sure you don’t miss press release by Michael Scott as well 🙂

When all is said and done, Michael’s heroic stand against David and Charles was funtastic! Was it worth these past few episodes? Eh…

My Thoughts & Favorite Quotes

Your doughnuts make me go nuts! – Michael

Crunch. – Accountant

The Office gets Heavy Competition

I haven’t been crazy about this whole Michael Scott Paper Company. While episodes like tonight get some serious laughs, in the back of my mind it feels like they didn’t have any good story board ideas so they thought: hey while we come up with something good why don’t we do this? I see this ending 1 of 2 ways: 1) The Scranton office starts floundering and Wallace boots Charles so Michael can return. Yay, smiles and what a wasted story line. or 2) Michael moves on and someone else takes over the Scranton office. Boo, tears and I’d hate that even worse.

For more on the Michael Scott Paper Company make sure you check out their new site:

Michael Scott Paper Company

As for tonight’s episode, in a nutshell:
Jim pranks Andy in what seems like an effort to get over Angela.
Michael and Dwight go head to head for the top sales client in Scranton.

Thoughts and Quotes:

One of the best openers! It just kept getting funnier and made those Tiger Woods golf commercials look silly!

Am I walking down the aisle to “You can call me Al?” – Pam
You will not be walking, you’ll be boogie-ing. – Andy

It’s not a dress code, it’s a death sentence! It’s like a straight jacket! – Dwight

I just think she doesn’t want a crucifix cake! – Jim (Oh man I was dying for a visual! Hilarious!)

Let me be your traveling pants. – Andy

I…understand…nothing…- Michael

I got hit in the face with a pee filled water balloon! – Michael

I took a month and put that thing on his Blackberry which he now uses as a nightlight. – Pam

Dwight and I wear the same undies! They did NOT appear to be tighty whities but black Fruit of the Loom boxer briefs with the grey waist band! What does this mean!?!?!

I hit a bear. – Dwight

And I knew that you would do that! Their meatball sub is their worst sandwich! – Dwight
…ugh…bastard!- Michael


Great closer! Just a great way to put a tidy little bow on the whole episode!
So what’d you think?
What underwear do you wear?
Favorite line?



Finally a Reason to Watch MTV!

I know none of “us” watch MTV anymore, much less the Real World. I mean is there anything more ironic than the Real World being called “real” anymore?!?

Anyway, please check it out tonight and when they feature “Lindsay Rae Spurlock” make sure you holler out loud for me…for us! We’re having a house party viewing party in Austin so if you’re near the “Mopac?!?” and hear screaming…no worries, it’s just me 🙂


Get LOST – Namaste

Namaste! I don’t even know what to say about tonight. I’m already a little late here and I just feel like Hurley…”oh…what?

So good to have “old Sawyer” back with the nicknames: Khan, Doc, Quickdraw but no Freckles 😦
Again what I love about this show is that not only are we getting some answers, sure more questions but at least a few answers and is encouraging me to go back and watch the old seasons! EVERYTHING is seen in a different light now (Ethan!) I mean and did they have this planned since the beginning or not? I mean would I see the earlier things in a different light or not? Very curious.

The 3 years/30 years thing is freakin’ me out! So obviously, the first time around the gang were part of those who stayed ON the plane. For some reason, part of them “fell off” the plane and just so happened to land when the lefties were??? Again…”oh…what?

Perhaps the craziest is seeing the “new Sawyer and Juliet.” Juliet totally just made Kate wiggle on purpose. Then did you catch Sawyer…sorry Lafleur…say “my people.” All is not well on the island folks and it’s getting freaky. I suppose now we’ll have 2 storylines: Sun and friends tryiing to get 30 years into the past and Jack, Kate, and friends trying to work things out with Dharma!

Next week looks AMAZING! What’d you think?



The Office’s New Boss

While you still can, get your Office Desktop Wallpapers!


This week we are introduced to Michael’s new boss. He states it so well:

Previously there was Jan and then Ryan. The former my lover and the latter my best friend.

So obviously, we know it’s not going to go that well. Charles Minor comes in and lays down the law and creates some tension in the Scranton office. “Tension” might be an understatement, especially for our band of misfit employees.

Funniest moment came from a slightly comical prank on Dwight by resident funny man that goes awkwardly tense with the arrival of Charles Minor.

Thoughts and Quotes:

A string quartet playing classy-cal music. – Dwight

A cane, monocle, and a top-hat! – Priceless 🙂

The former, my lover and the latter my best friend. – Michael

I think I thrive under a lack of accountability. – Michael

If we hire Cirque de Solie as salaried employees, think that’ll help with the year end taxes? – Michael

Tell him to call me ASAP as possible. – Michael

I think it’s hypercritical. – Michael

What is a 2 way petting zoo? – Charles Minor



That’s about all the discussion I can do here in case you hadn’t seen it (Ginger!) so if you want to talk more then leave a comment!


The Office Blood Drive


It’s Valentine’s Day. Michael is completely bummed and gathers all the singles together in hopes of finding the girl he flirted with in the blood drive.

Jim and Pam go out with Phyllis and Bob Vance of Vance Refridgeration and find out how freaky Phyllis is.

Sorry for the lame recap, I guess I didn’t care too much. I don’t want Michael to move on. I want Holly back! Michael does end the show with a great monologue talking head about moving on in relationships…but…well there were a few laughs and awkward moments however it kind of went over like a lead balloon for me.

A brief mention was that Andy is off on all the Honeymoons that he paid for without being able to get his deposit back. If you missed the episode just check out what Andy’s doing 🙂 It’s just as enjoyable!

Andy's Honeymoons

Thoughts and Quotes:

AAYYYYY!! – Jim, Pam, Michael, & Dwight

Roses are red
Violets are blue
It’s time for your dental cleaning
And maybe a check up too – Kelly

Blood: The gift of everlasting life! – Michael

I feel like a human juice box! Hawaiian Blood Punch! Type O-cean Spring! – Michael

Where’s Andy? – Michael
He’s on one of his honeymoons. – Oscar

I was hit by Cupid’s sparrow! Funny little bird but he gets the job done. – Michael

So that’s what I got…You?
