"every time i blink, i have a tiny dream..."

i kind of cried a little at confession tonight when the priest told me to "keep running the race." is that not the coolest christian image ever? do you think paul was a runner? like maybe he ran his own letters over to corinth and stuff? [i KNOW he didn't, people. it's just an idea.] the priest also talked about christian perfection, which is perhaps the second coolest christian image ever. [paul will be happy to hear about this when i tell him i have a blog.] maybe he had this in mind:
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us rid ourselves of every burden and sin that clings to us and persevere in running the race that lies before us while keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, the leader and perfecter of faith. - Hebrews 12:1-2 [NAB]
and we don't have to be perfect because, you know, our perfection is in christ. i like it.

okay, so who read the new york times article yesterday about how the west wing writers originially wanted vinick to win. now WHAT? [kath likes it.] i feel that vinick has been really evil in the last few episodes i've seen. did they recently make him evil? when did they start changing the episodes, or did they just change this one? i mean, the election was really close. [okay, just to be clear, his STAFF is evil. not vinick himself.] i've also had "deep in the heart of texas" in my head since the second election episode. ["the stars at night, are big and bright - CLAPCLAPCLAPCLAP - deep in the heart of texas."]

i have a shoutout in kath's profile for saying that i often get too hot (HOT) in my office and should, therefore, stop in the church and get some holy water. and get someone to hose me down with it. and listen to the meat loaf song that used to get us from south bend to indianapolis.

every time i blink, i have a tiny dream...
what kind of paradise am i looking for?
i've got everything i want and still i want more
maybe some tiny shiny key will wash up on the shore...
and what can i say but i'm wired this way
and you're wired to me...
