About

If I were a t-shirt, it would say “I Use Inappropriate Humor as a Coping Mechanism.”

I’ve been known to get lost in the woods without a snack.

I can’t turn down friend requests on Facebook even when I know I should.

I am strangely proud of my certificate suitable for framing that says I am on the Dean’s List Honor Roll.

I love my family, although I have been known to check the Craig’s List rules to see if it’s legal to list them for sale there.

I love Jesus and believe in limitless grace, which is a good thing because I am going to have a lot of explaining to do.

Especially if He really is offended by swearing.

I know Winston Churchill is falsely attributed with the quote “If you’re not liberal when you’re young, you have no heart. If you’re not conservative when you’re old, you have no brain.”

I still find that quote entertaining, because apparently I was a heartless 20-year-old and am brainless at 40.

I have been kicked off a cooking website for being a smart alec. No really. You can’t even say my name over there. It’s like I’m Voldemort with a whisk. However, in the process I made some of my best friends ever.

    Oooh, you’re an instigator. I can’t disclose that information, due to legal waivers, but it kind of rhymes with “Sesame Bar.”

    Ah, yes, the infamous “Sesame Bar”. I know it well. Welcome to “banned camp”. 🙂

    I know about the wisk but what is a “Voldemort”. by the way Elle sent me. I found her blog a while ago and I am pleased to be reading your blog now.

    With my bad day today waiting for the ax to fall on my husband’s job, desperately disliking what I am doing at work….I find your humor wonderful. Maybe I can catch it.

    I hope to return often. Have a great day, only one more week till HOPE arrives. Marie

    Remember this one time? At Banned Camp? Hee! How come *you* get to be Voldemort? Hmm? If you’re Voldemort, I’m Ursula, k?

    I’m sure the Big Guy will understand about the swearing, umm, I hope so, cuz I’ll be standing behind you when you explain……….and you’re a rebel too? Kicked off a web site-what kind of funky thing does it take to do that? I seriously haven’t lived enough in these 42 years…….

    Can I be your friend? 🙂

    Forgot to tell you Elle sent me. You can blame her.

    I know not of the “Sesame Bar”. But I sincerely want to know. Because I, too, want to be in banned camp.

    A swearing person who loves Jesus? OK! I’m in that line-up!

    I can one-up the cooking kick-out. While President of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, my best friend (Mennonite Missionaries daughter) did a spoof medley at a retrreat–Christian-ish lyrics to Heartbreak (Holiness) hotel, etc. It was a hit. So we were asked to perform it at her parents’ church for a youth fundraiser. There we were, on the stage in front of 300 Mennonites who got quieter and quieter as we sang our funny song. And before it was over the MC took our mic away, apologized to the audience, and informed them that we would leave now. Which we did.

    I went on to become the Worship Leader at my church 10 years later, and lasted for 7 years, but I think of those angry people whenever I drive through their city,lol. No humor in THEIR Heaven!

    And by “readink,” I meant “reading.”

    Sigh.
