Where you can read the relatively rational ramblings of a silly half-monkey, half-boy. This freak of nature is named Joel. He also responds to the name 'Bart Wang'.

Haven't been doing a whole helluva lot. Work was closed on Friday for a 'snow day'. I felt like I was 9 years old. A snow day? Yeah, that's right. I slept an extra couple hours. I think that when I die, I'm going to sleep a lot in heaven. It's not only enjoyable when I'm tired but also when I'm not. Think about it. Tell me you don't love your warm bed on a late Saturday morning. Tell me you wouldn't kick your own mother in the shins for getting you out of bed then. Yeah, you know it.
I've almost watched the entire first season of '24'. I've 18 episodes down and 6 to go. Great present from Melanie. I really don't have a lot to say. I just felt I should write something. Here's what you should do when you finish reading this. Go to www.christianbook.com - yeah, I think 'Christian' literature is wack but they carry some good stuff, not just the stupid crap about 'What Would Jesus Eat?' [Note: He was a carpenter in the Middle East in the first century. Should a 21st century family in North America eat those things? Does God give a rip? The answer to the latter is obviously 'no'.] Then search for 'Messy Spirituality' by Michael Yaconelli. I'm telling you, you'll be grateful. I own two copies and just bought two more from said website. Also bought some other books REALLY cheap. Better than the Christian rip-off, uh, I mean book, store. There's your mission. Should you choose to accept it, you will be assisted in realizing that God loves YOU, and not primarily what you do, what you wear, how you smell (it's probably not good), what you should eat (though, to be kind to your gastrointestinal system, avoid real Mexican food) or who your favourite hip hop crew is (I think God's vote would be L.A. Symphony, in case you were wondering - www.lasymphony.com).
