memorandum from captain random

  • every time i hear the twang in john hiatt’s voice i realize that the “ole acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree.” i think that my penchant for folk music is simply a sophisticated expression of my boyhood love of country music. that being said, every time i hear someone talk about new country (read: shania twain, rascal flatts and toby keith) i am tempted to throw the country A-K rack out in the street and go work for a virgin megastore.
  • i recently received confirmation from the seminary that they had waived my immunization requirements due to my “stated religious objections.” i never registered an objection, but do have a friend who works in the registration department. it pays to have friends in high places
  • i’ve been reading a church growth book by thom rainer and actually enjoying it. shhh! don’t tell any of my emergent friends.
  • you know you’re getting old when an unexpected office meeting makes you doubt your ability to pay the mortgage.
  • memo to mr. pearass: you know you are loved when Gentry agrees to accompany you to a rufus wainright show. the aforementioned upright, integrous citizen cannot believe he is going to subject himself to such excesses of cruising, camp and cheese.
  • memo to mr. folds: Gentry expects you to make aforementioned evening worthwhile.
  • memo to self: keep saying “aforementioned.” it makes you sound sophisticated
  • that is all. i must now return to the pimp-driven life
