Mysteries of the universe and other things that crack me up

1 04 2009

Gah! I’m so behind on blogging, if I wait a little longer, maybe life will lap me and I can just fall in step and pretend I kept up all along. (Don’t question my reality. I’m comfortable here.) Meanwhile, to grease the wheels, here’s one quick story and a couple of fun links. First the story:

Last weekend was the FDDDS+M (Father Daughter Daughter Daughter Son plus Mom) ski trip, an annual tradition for my family of origin. We flew to Denver and drove a rental car to Beaver Creek where we enjoyed two days of amazing skiing in 50+ degree weather on three feet of new snow. Yeah. Paradise.

But I’m getting ahead of myself. During our shuttle ride from the airport to the Budget Rent-a-Car lot, I told my family about Graham’s blog. Graham is one of Luke’s friends at Regent College, and he is also one of the funniest people on the planet. I was mostly aiming my remarks at my brother, because he and Graham have very similar senses of humor. I don’t remember exactly what I said, but something like, “Graham is one of Luke’s seminary friends and he writes a hilarious blog. You should check it out.” At this point, my mom interjected a question–one that I found myself unable to answer.

The world is full of mystery and wonder–enigmas that philosophers and theologians have pondered for centuries, and yet they remain unexplained to this day. This was not one of those questions. Mom asked, “What’s his horsepower?”

Awkward silence. Finally I ventured a response. “I have no idea what you’re asking.”

Then we all cracked up. I now have a new favorite question to ask about people. Thanks, Mom!

Okay, so here are the links. First, Graham’s blog. Enjoy!

Second, here are some photos I shot at the Dallas Arboretum last Thursday. Explanation included with the pictures. Again, enjoy!
