you down wit jc? yo

from going jesus:

"Every week, the music director gives me a CD with the edited recording of Sunday's sermon, which I then convert to mp3 using iTunes, so that I can add it to St. Ned's web site and sermon podcast.

Naturally, iTunes wants to be helpful, so it queries CDDB to see if it can identify the CD. And sometimes it grabs hold of a title at random.

This week, it thinks the sermon is Supa Rock Mix Mutha F by Supa Mix Madness. Last week's was identified as Phat or Wack? by Insane Clown Posse.

Apparently sermons are much more creative on their planet."

cruel to be kind in the right measure

so my dad spent the night in the hospital this weekend. the simple explanation is that he was severely anemic and required 5 units of blood transfused over two days before he could go home. he's got a few follow up appts this week to try and take care of the problem.

the more complicated explanation is somewhat embarrassing and i won't go into it here. but the bottom line is that what might have caused his anemia has been going on for some time now, quite likely YEARS and for whatever reason, he has done nothing about it.

although i'm concerned and scared for him, i'm more mad than anything that he hasn't done anything so i am going to be ON HIS CASE in a major way to make sure this all gets cleared up. i don't care if he stops speaking to me because i will be such a pest. there's no excuse for letting your health go when you can do something about it.

i can relate

from mimi smartypants:

"...I found myself sitting on the floor watching Nora poop. I keep hearing about all these lovely toddlers who want privacy for their pooping endeavors, but that's not my Nora. No, she insists on company, and if she is having a particularly hard time she even wants to hold hands. Sometimes it looks like a creepy fundamentalist prayer meeting in there, with us holding hands and Nora's head bowed in pooping concentration. "
