Early morning theology

I'm having to get up quite early in the morning these days to squeeze in a bit of extra time to work on a paper that has a looming deadline. But to adapt a quote from a famous Theologigglian of yesteryear, "I'm not much of a theologian at 6:00 in the morning. At 6:00 in the morning, I don't even believe in God. In fact, at that hour, I'm not sure I exist."

Hair Club for TV Preachers?

Sketch idea we had:

Man with enormously large hair and other suitably flashy TV preacher accoutrements smiles a big smile and says,
"You know, I didn't always have hair like this. I used to have the most ordinary hair around (picture of man with normal hair). I dreamed of starting a TV ministry, but thought, "how can I do it with such ordinary hair." Then I joined the Hair Club for TV Preachers. . .
Now I can preach powerfully, annoint for healing and even baptize in my new hair (suitable pictures for each phrase) . . .

Birthday bashing

Hey super-friends, check out the post here to find out about Deb's birthday gifts...

(You also need to know that now she's officially 40 and I'm, well, not yet, I've started to call her "old lady." She retaliates by calling me "cabana boy.")

Stereo Pictures and Annoyance Level

Just to let everyone know that we made it back to Kentucky yesterday evening, a bit tired but an uneventful trip home. Jerusha watched her videos most of the day, and we made it back in time for a few minutes of playtime before bed. Tomorrow is the *BIG DAY*, Jerusha's first day of first grade at her new Catholic School, Saint Agatha.

Someone asked if the stereo pictures could be posted. The answer is yes and no. Here is one way to do it, perhaps almost as annoying as a popup ad.

I need to get offline now, time for Jana to start sucking on the coffee stirrer that is our pathetic internet connection.

Looks like they made it

Theologiggle veterans (and monster Manilow fans) Jack Brown and his wife Sharon and their son David joined us last night for a fabulous Chicken Pomodora dinner.

Set a course for adventure

We spent a chunk of yesterday afternoon in a friends' boat out on Spring Lake. Pip and Jerusha got a kick out of sitting in the captain's chair.

In our boat conversation we all decided that should the weather start getting rough, and our tiny ship should be lost, we would surely die in very short time on the desert island were it not for Mr. Phil. We're persuaded that he could make a nuclear reactor out of coconuts and beach sand.

Boy Band Love

Wish I thought of this. More than a silly song--it's a formula for sure-fire pop success. Original T'Ger Jack Brown put us on to this.

Last year's invitation


"There's a monkey on my back and it's called Peanut Butter Me Up with my good friends Ben & Jerry."

Ticket to ride

These are the tickets for the first Theologiggle back in '92. It was a benefit for the Heifer Project, hence the animal butt theme.

How it all started


This week (Aug 1-7) is the 9th annual Theologiggle reunion. This year held in beautiful Grand Rapids, Michigan. Woo hoo. We've had much fun so far pretty much just doing nothing. Well, we did have a raucously good time at our Harry Potter Symposium. Lotsa theories, no answers. Not yet.
