On Labor Day, Janelle and I are inviting YOU to eat brunch at our house. There will be pancakes, bacon and mimosas for sure, but probably also some of my secret recipe "birthday casserole" (previously deemed so unhealthy as to only be consumed once annually, hence the name) and whatever yummy brunch items others care to share.

We will also play variegated and sundry games, such as the Western New York's own Kan-Jam (tm).

Your attendance is kindly requested. A comment, or response to the facebook event page will help us estimate the amount of batter to prepare. We hope to require so much that we are forced to rent a cement mixer.

10 Things I like about my new t-shirt

Yes, this is a shallow post.

1. It's stretchy, but not clingy.

2. It breathes.

3. The t-shirt was made in America, sweat-free.

4. And printed in Buffalo, NY.

5. It supports the Elmwood Village Association.

6. It is a good excuse to wear a t-shirt to work.

7. T-shirts are already the most comfortable thing you can wear, so a comfy t-shirt is like, double.

8. Green and grey are nice colors.

9. It was an impulse purchase. Even though I am an impulsive person, I'm not really so impulsive with my money.

10. It's finally t-shirt weather around here!

Why, yes!

I will be on bidwell parkway tonight. Thanks for asking.

A couple other bullet points, since I never post anymore.

-A friend from the last church I served died last week. Funerals are never fun, but they really stink when you are older than the deceased.

-I am all for health care reform, but every two weeks, a big part of my paycheck goes to BlueCross, who is lobbying against it. If I were serious about what I believe in, I would forego health insurance until everyone can get it.

-Yes, cash for clunkers, is more about stimulating the economy and getting the auto makers back in business then cleaning up the air. I almost took the deal, because we could use a four-door instead of a pick-up, and we would never get $4500 for the truck otherwise. But I haven't, and the program will likely die before I get to it.

-Steelers training camp has begun. I love it.

-I need to play disc golf a few more times while I still can. If you want to join, let me know. I can share discs and provide some instruction.

-working (still) on a logo for the church. It looks like we will have a bright, urban, classic, lampost as our pic, with a font that is simultaneously old and fresh. The pic will come when it is done.

-I took a dead rat out of my backyard yesterday. That had been nesting next door. Dead rats aren't as good as pet rats or lab rats, but after those, dead rats are the best kind.

-I want to ride a bike from Buffalo to Albany on the Erie Canal. Maybe next summer.

Bidwell party?

Every week at the Bidwell concerts, a group of people goes whole hog and sets up a table with good food and drink and basically puts everybody else to shame with their commitment to enjoying the show. Maybe this can be an inspiration for us?

I am willing to arrive early and set up a table. I'm thinking every (e:peep) BYOB and an appetizer/snack to share. What do you think?

Next Tuesday is Outer Circle Orchestra.

Computer peeps!

My friend Thomas is a computer guy (Web stuff, I'm pretty sure) and got laid off. Anybody know anybody that's hiring?

I also have another friend that is looking for a pastor/preaching/chaplain gig, but I figure the former job has a better chance on (e:strip).

International Bike Ride

(e:janelle) ran hard today, and embarrassed me off the couch, so I jumped on my bike. In addition to grabbing my helmet (a new habit), I also grabbed my passport. There is a nice bike path on the other side of the Niagara River, and along Lake Erie. It's a great ride.

One warning though--the ride from Canada to the USA is uphill, so be prepared for hard work going home.

I took some pics. I may post them later or maybe even make a movie.

I feel dirty

Because I have posted more on Buffalo Rising than here. Please forgive me.

Tonight I am hosting a back yard movie party. Guess where we will be watching Religulous?

yeah. My back yard. I think we are going to have a fire, too, so it should be fun.

Quick Review and Thanks

I haven't been posting much, and shouldn't be posting now--I'm kinda busy. But (e:heidi) shared her Shango gift certificate that she couldn't use, so (e:janelle) and I used it last night.

Shango was good. We just had drinks and apps. I had what the tap said was a Flying Bison Maibock, but seemed to be something different. It was still tasty, so no complaints. Sweet Potato fries were amazing, the quesadillas were, too.

It was way better than last week when we went to La Docle Vita. Overcrowded, loud, and bad service. I sent a feedback email and they didn't respond. Oh yeah, and the website is ugly and noisy

So, next time you go out, choose Shango over La Dolce Vita. And if you can, have (e:Heidi) share a gift to pay for it! (THANKS AGAIN!)
