10 Things I like about the economy

Just for the record. I don't like what is happening. People I know and like are losing their jobs. This is an exercise for me in trying to find the bright side.

1. People are growing in their empathy. For many of us, people in poverty are no longer "them," they are "us."

2. Gas prices have come down.

3. This will get us to do things differently.

4. We will have learned that ridiculous debt is ridiculous.

5. People should end up happier. Statistically, people are more likely to be happy when they have less disposable income (as long as basic needs are met).

6. What goes down, should come up? Maybe? Right?

7. (e:vincent)'s cogent analysis.

8. I expect to be able to find some used skis super cheap.

9. The best things in life are still free.

10. My grandparents prepared me well for living in a depression.

10 Things I like about Xmas decorating

This might be easy for some of you, but I am doing it because I have to remind myself.


1. Spending time with people I like.

2. Snacking while I work.

3. The moment when you turn off the overhead lights and look at the glow.

4. Trying to take low-light pictures of the tree.

5. The smell of a fresh tree.

6. It only comes once a year.

7. Happy memories.

8. The celebratory cold one at the end.

9. The fact that other people do a lot of the work.

10. This year, the churches decorations DO NOT include a live tree--which makes my life a lot easier.

Say it ain't so!

I love football, but sometimes I hate the NFL. Watch, and you will see why.

Football tonight

The game starts at 8:15, but I may not be able to leave house church (it's like church, but in a home, and with snacks, and better) until 8:30.

At that point, I will go to Casa di Pizza, where there is NFL network.

It's the Steelers vs. the Bengals, so hopefully the game will be pretty much over by halftime, and I can go to bed at a reasonable hour.

If you want to watch some football, stop on by.

Brian Fellow's Safari Planet

I don't know if you remember this, but it just came back into my mind, and it is one of the funniest things in my life that I have ever enjoyed.

Steelers

So, according to Nike, tomorrow's game has been anticipated since Troy Polamalu and Ladanian Tomlinson were in the womb.
