First and foremost, as a movie lover, a Colorado lover, and a Christian, my heart pours out for Aurora tonight. That’s a lot of tragedy for one area.
Second, can we go ahead and say there’s something slightly cursed about these movies? I mean, even if they were remotely considering a fourth one, why would they now? Woof.
Third, and keeping with the movie trend, let me explain my title. Dogma is a movie by Kevin Smith that deals in various forms of hilarity and religious…symbolism…among other things. But my favorite part is by far the opening, in which Kevin Smith attempts to defuse some of the hate that was most certainly coming his way by simply telling the viewer that he believes God has a sense of humor. His proof of this? The duck-billed platypus. Genius.
I also firmly believe God has a sense of humor, mostly because parts of the Bible are pretty entertaining, but also because the Dude (capitalized for respect) has a wicked grasp of irony. That’s right…
We’re going back to Houston. Willingly. Happily. And quickly.
Part of the reason I haven’t blogged in three weeks is that this all came together pretty fast and I didn’t want to mislead or misreport information. We’ve procured an apartment, Dr. Wife started her job today, and within the week we’ll be back in the humidity and traffic. The funniest part of it all is that this was our choice…it felt like the best job, the best community, and the best place to start finally being adults. Well, she can be an adult. I’m holding out for a little bit longer. So get pumped Houston…we’re bringing the thunder.
(In a related note, I now will have been in Denver for the flash of Tebowmania and in Houston for the start of Linsanity South. Not many people that can claim that distinction.)
Breakfast–Frosted Mini Wheats. I felt like I needed some fiber to clean out the system…I succeeded. Finished off a box of sweetened hay…very poetic.
Lunch–Got to have lunch with Kyle Stallard and Lauren Waggoner today, which was stinkin’ awesome. We went to Cafe Brazil, which I have to admit I have unfairly judged in the past. It was delicious! I had a three egg omelette with ham, homemade chorizo (not worth the expense…), bell pepper, onion, mushrooms, and some sweet potato fries on the side. I approve that restaurant. I also approve that Kyle has apparently moved back to Houston as well, so we can go less than six months without hanging out now. Win/win.
Dinner–On the Dallas Farewell Dining Tour Version 3.4 or whatever we’re on now, we had to cross Snuffer’s off the list. So we did…spicy chicken strips and fries. Awesomeness, although not perfect. There’s this disgusting phenomenon that occurs in Plano/Allen around July or August of every year where the water supply seems to mold on itself, causing everything made with unfiltered tap water to taste like dirt. So my Dr Pepper, made with carbonated tap water, tasted an awful lot like if you attempted to drink Dr Pepper from a homemade mud cup. That was nasty…won’t miss that.
Tomorrow is my second to last day of work (woo!) and then Sunday Abby comes home (woo!) and we have a going away soiree (double woo!) before the packing begins. Again. Boo.
Have a good one.
