Most times, I find knee-driving to be extremely dangerous. However, yesterday as I utilized this thigh strengthening maneuver, I recognized its helpfulness in the following three scenarios.

1. Changing. And, puuleeese, re-inhale that know you've done it before.

2. Booty-dancing. Shakin' your bum in the car is pretty much impossible, so in these cases, you must flail both of your arms about as a crazy person in order to make up for the inability to drop it like it's hot.

3. Eating chips and queso. Knee-driving is, in my opinion, most fulfilling in this scenario as you can hold the queso in one hand and dip the delicious chip with the other all while reaching your desired destination in a timely fashion and impressing the safe drivers around you.

Please knee-drive responsibly...

Distribution of Passion

I just realized I hadn't blogged in two whole weeks...I still can't believe it's been that long. I tried to think what could possibly be taking up so much of my time that I haven't a blasted minute to indulge my readers (insert ponder here)....I quickly figured it out.........College football, ABC and the Village Church.

I am currently obsessed with college football...particularly Texas Tech football. I have spent nearly every Saturday heating up queso, staying in my pajamas and watching football games like a freakin' dude. Alumni...what, what!

I am also ridiculously over-committed to television. Last night, someone asked me what shows I watch. Here's what came out of my mouth...Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, Pushing Daisies, Eli Stone, Extreme Makeover Home Edition, Brothers and Sisters, Samantha Who, Lipstick Jungle, The Hills and Project Runway. Project Runway is gone now so I can strike that, but in 2 weeks the gaping hole will be replaced with 30 Rock and then another will be added in January when Lost returns in all of its gloriousness. And, what's so crazy about this list is that I have seen every episode of every season of every one of these shows and that half of them are on ABC. Oh, how I love thee ABC!

With all of the tv watching, you may be wondering if I'm even a believer at all anymore...what with seemingly zero time to engage in a church community. But, alas my dear friends, the Village actually takes up more than all of that put together. I know I mentioned it vaguely in a previous post, but I've managed to stumble into a small group of girls so deeply engaged in discipleship that it makes me feel like I'm sitting in a Challenge group in the great atmosphere of Lubbock all over again. They have been a much needed answer to a sometimes frustrated prayer. The Village loves discipleship and it makes me feel like I'm home again.

Hope that got you up to speed. I'll have some new material to blog about in the coming's a teaser. I am supposed to attend a "Hick-Hop" dance party with the very famous baker, Lindy Means, this Friday night. Tell me that doesn't get you excited for a re-cap post!!

The Cinematic Orchestra

For the past 3 days, I haven't stopped listening to The Cinematic Orchestra (Cinematic Orchestra). Part of me can't believe I haven't heard them before, but then again, they are categorized under the acid jazz genre...not appealing at first glance.

There are certain artists that move me to creative productivity and reflection...they are one of them. Stumble upon them if you get a chance. Start with the track "To Build a Home" from Ma Fleur and then listen to the Everyday cd or the Ma Fleur cd...they are both great.
