Turkey Day

It’s a shame really that people start putting up Christmas decorations and listen to Jingle Bell Rock before Thanksgiving is even celebrated. I feel bad for poor Turkey Day, with it almost always being out shined by Christmas. My family agrees to not do anything festive until the day after Thanksgiving, and I think others should join us in that pact. Recognition for this food lovers holiday is a real issue people, and not one to be taken lightly.


The Plan

I have a theory, and my theory is that God has a plan for every human that walks this earth, whether they believe in him or not. I believe that he allows bad things to happen to us because “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” But of course he allows great things to happen to everyone, even if they don’t think they deserve them, to show that his love for us is incredible, and everlasting. I don’t want you to think I’m trying to be a preacher, or that I’m pushing my religious views on you by writing this, but I did want to take the time to write this because I’ve been feeling God working in my life lately. It’s not like you hear this ominous voice coming from the sky telling you not to do something, or giving you directions, it doesn’t work like that. He sits back and watches you make decisions that he knew you would make, and maybe later on you begin to see just why God let it happen. This theory helps me get through the bad times in life. Whenever things aren’t going my way, I just have to remember that God probably knew this was going to happen, and that he has something else planned for me in the future that’s a whole let better than this.

Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.

Just recently I have discovered what may quite possibly be the greatest thing that has ever been created in the United States of America, aside from pizza rolls. I am talking about The Office people. It is the funniest, most amusing, wittiest, and laugh out loudiest (I am aware that loudiest is not a word, but the show is just so good it was necessary) show I have ever partaken in in my 16 years of living. I started this show a very short time ago and I am already on season 3, that is how addictively amazing this television show is. The characters are ingenious, for example we have Dwight K. Schrute, a beet farmer/salesman/owner of his own bed and breakfast. According to him he is an expert in hundreds of different fields, and he definitely knows a thing or two about Battlestar Galactica. Another character Greg Daniels, the creator of this wonderful show that I owe a lifetime of thanks too, created is Mr. Jim Halpert. Jim is the perfect combination of sarcasm, charm and seriousness. His favorite pastime; finding a million different ways to get on Dwight’s last nerve, or simply messing with him if he doesn’t feel like working that day. Halpert is also in a love triangle that only he knows about. He is head over heels in love with the receptionist Pam, but Pam is engaged, and has been engaged for 2 years now. Still waiting to see how that one plays out so I will fill you in later. Last but not least we have the star of the show. The boss of the office. The man who is in charge, but still makes “that’s what she said” jokes whenever a sentence could be interpreted in an inappropriate way. This man is Micheal Scott. I would love to describe the many different qualities of Micheal Scott to you, but I do not think I would be able to do him justice. Therefore I will leave you with a request. Please download Netflix, pay the $8 a month, and start binge watching The Office ASAP, because I promise you, you will not regret it. Your life might even be better because of it.
