I need some help here with a theoretical question.

It seems as though everyone around me wants some cake.   I wouldn’t mind cake, because I generally like it but I know from past experience that it can be hard on my digestive system.   Yet, still I do like cake and there are days I miss eating it.

Right now I know of at least 8 people who would do almost anything for a really good piece of cake.   They are losing sleep over how badly they want that cake.

Someone has recently offered me a piece of cake  that looks like it could be my favourite flavour.  It has everything you could ever want from a good dessert.  Moist cake, gooey filling, sweet icing.    But I suspect–can’t prove it, but strongly suspect–that the cake has been baked by someone who had the flu at the time and if I eat a piece I’ll get the flu too.

So, do I risk eating the cake or pass on it?

This day is killing me.

It reminds me of being a teenager and hoping my ne’er do well boyfriend would call me.

I’ve got several correspondences outstanding.  I think I’ve hit the ‘Get Mail’ button about twelve thousand times.

On a related note, the people at Prevention dot com and Amazon dot com can bite me.

They clearly have no idea how horrible it is to hear the incoming-mail ding, only to receive their loveless dictates on what I should be eating and reading.

except my dad, my brother and Roger Abramson.

I’m prattling on about tort reform over at Mack’s place.

And no word about how my position on TR directly contradicts my libertarianism. I know that it does. And I’m duly ashamed.

I had a long post all simmering on the back burner that went into much detail about Evangelicals and conservative politics with a dash of Church of Christ thrown in. But it’s Friday and I have no desire to go there right now. Maybe later in the day. Maybe Monday when all the political wonks are done misunderstanding the Christian Church and I can get my thoughts out there untainted.

For now, though, I’m going to do a Friday Random Ten because it’s FRIDAY. And you’re supposed to do a Random Ten if you blog, I guess. I do try so very hard to follow the blogging trends. It is only out of mercy for you, the kind person reading this blog that I don’t engage in Half-Naked Thursday. I really don’t want to blamed for “Kill Me Now Friday”.

So without further ado, I give you my Friday Random Ten.

Bullseye candyIf I were a candy I’d be that bland, flavourless white gunk in the middle of the Bullseye, while my family and friends were the rich, gooey caramel surrounding me. There’s so much chewy goodness right now with the other people in my life.

  • My sister has been named ‘Teacher Of The Year’ at her school. I’m so proud of her for that. I think it takes real guts and a good heart to go into teaching. She has made it her life, and a lot of kids are blessed by it. She brings both dedication and innovation to her job. I’m so glad she’s received recognition for all she does.

I’m so proud of these two and their accomplishments, and I just had to brag a little.

Update I’ve added the link to the Tennessean article, which also features another blogger, our buddy Dan Hensley.

Doesn’t my husband look serious in his bike gear?!?

I have a second interview scheduled for Friday, April 6th.

This is for the company that gave me a first interview back in mid-October.

I guess I just figured they’d either filled the position by now or decided not to create it after all.

I’ll try not to read too much symbolism in the interview being scheduled on Good Friday. Nor will I make any punny jokes about it resurrecting my career.

I’ve gotten a lot of folks coming here for the information on the actual song featured in the show.

All of the details are available here, at the song-arranger’s site.

The portion of the show with the full song can be seen & heard here.

According to Bear McCreary, they will be releasing a Galactica soundtrack album in August to coincide with the Direct-to-DVD movie. That soundtrack will feature their version of the Bob Dylan song ‘All Along The Watchtower’.
