Look What I Dug Up?

This is one of the weirdest songs of all time. I came across it on the Youtube. Then I remembered watching this on Soul Train when I was very young.

What a Day!

This morning started out really good. I had to meet with a couple of guys about youth ministry over at Starbucks. So, I woke up early, took a shower, and got ready for my day. After all that, I went for my half mile walk to my bus stop. At the stop, there was this family; a mom, a dad, their son, and their two little girls. I don't know what happened, but all of the kids just started screaming. A couple of minutes later I was starting to go INSANE!!!!

Finally the bus comes. I'm the first to get on. I forgot to say that the bus was empty. What happens next? The family decides to sit next to me. I got to thinking that it was going to be a while until I got to Starbucks. The kids are still screaming by the way. A few minutes pass. I start to show frustrations and I go and sit at the back of the bus.

The rest of the ride seems rather calm. That is, until the kids come to the back of the bus and start screaming again. I am fed up at this point. I don't even get to my proper stop. I just get off. As I get off, I realize that Starbucks is about two miles away and I'm supposed to be there at 9am. It's 8:45am. There's no way I can make it by 9. So I go to call Rob (one of the guys I'm meeting) and I don't have his number.

It's about 9:04am and I get there and the guys aren't around yet, but guess who is. Go on guess. It's that darn family. The kids are still being brats. When Roba and his friend Dan arrive I ask if we can go outside.

After the meeting is over, we go to the thrift store to look for some stuff for an upcoming event. A few minutes after we go inside, I run into that family again, and yes the kids are still screaming.

A few hours later, I decide that I need a trash can, so I go to Walmart. Guess who just happens to be at Walmart? That family again. This time their kids are quiet. I am finally at peace.

After I get my shopping done, I get on the bus. The family is leaving at the same time as I am. The kids are complete angels. That is until we get on the bus. The kids just start to go nuts. This is where a different Chris Luna comes out. I don't know what got into me.

These kids are yelling and going crazy and I have had it. I yell out, "knock it off"! The dad looks at me and asks me if I'm okay. I tell him no and I get off at the next stop. I walk for about four miles until I get home. Then I kind of think about it for a while and I just give myself a pat on the back.

The end.

Six Days Later

Okay, so I've been off of Facebook now for six glorious days. They say that when you quit something, it's always hard the first week. Whoever they are, I want to punch them in the face. Only because they're right.

I'll go online to check my email then without thinking, I'll go to the URL box and start to type faceb... then a little devil will pop up on my shoulder and tell me to go ahead, nobody's going to care. An angel on my other shoulder will soon pop up and tell me that If I do, I'm lying to myself, God, and my 500 some odd friends. So I then get angry and punch the devil and the angel in the face and throw my computer at the wall. Well, mentaly speaking of course.

So that's the Facebook update. Plus it's cool to be back in the blogosphere.

Back to Blogging

As some of you know, I have made the choice to leave the Facebook nation for a while. You may ask why. Here is the answer.

I took a small trip to visit my good friends Mike and Danielle in Arizona last week and check out their church, Real Life. Everybody at the church was challenged to give up something for a month. Mike and Danielle gave up eating out. I wasn't going to give up anything, because I was just visitng the church. Then Dan, a pastor at Real Life asked me what I was going to give up.

I thought about it for a while. What was it that I could give up? Some people were giving up sugar, others would give up TV. So, I started thinking about the one thing I was obsessed with. I came to the realization that I am on Facebook way to much.

This is what I do in the span of two hours a night before I go to sleep. First I update my status, then I chat with people for a bit, then this is what takes up most of my time: I play games. Yeah, I guess I could have just given up on the games, but I decided to give up on the whole kit'n kaboodle.

So now I'm back to my first love on the internet, blogging. I guess it would be better to share what's going on in my life. I know I've said that I was going to blog more. I blog every once in a while. Since I'm not on Facebook, I guess this will give me something else to do.
