My daughter insisted on dressing up as Scott and I, and she picked out what it meant to look like us.
When I’m wondering if my daughter is enjoying dressing up as us or mocking us, I’m becoming more popular by reading and writing elsewhere.
My Other Hangouts (don’t tell my blog):
- Would You Vote For Jesus? Questions Christian Voters Must Ask: On Progressive Christianity, I revamped an older piece on what Christian voters, particularly the “one issue voters” like anti-abortion voters, need to be asking themselves about their political canidiates: Not who is pro-life but who is the most Christ-like? (Thanks to my Facebook freaders for encouraging me on this piece. Progressive Christianity loved it and worked very quickly to get the piece edited, up on their site and in their monthly newsletter before election day.)
- How do you blog so well: Lateenough: On Kevin Rothermel’s blog, he asked me “How does your typical blog post come to life?”, and I dish all my secrets, which basically come down to two words: Luck and organization.
- A Halloween Costume That Includes Sweatpants And Chickens (you’re welcome): On This Blogger Makes Fun Of Stuff, “Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road?” is one of my favorite Halloween costumes. It’s great for family with a new baby (like we did) or a couple (because who doesn’t want to order a rubber chicken off of amazon).
Favorite posts I didn’t read, I mean, write:
- 7 Good Days-Tale of Arthritis: From Super Exhausted, an important reminder that arthritis affects all ages and many families and is often not treatable as much as managing the pain as best as medicine can. (heartbreaking)
- Christian Group Finds Gay Agenda in an Anti-Bullying Day: From The New York Times, The American Family Association is urging parents to keep children home on a day when schools encourage students to eat lunch with someone they don’t usually speak to, which, to me, makes them an anti-Christian group. (frustrating but important)
- Avery Durable View Binder with 2 Inch EZ-Turn Ring, White, 1 Binder (17032): From Amazon, the new reviews of the three-ring binders since the second presidential debate are totally worth reading. (hilarious)
