Have We Met Before, or is That Just a Lion?

In the large “stack” of email I had waiting for me when we got back from Cambodia, one was from the Fort Worth Zoo. We are frequent zoo goers (although not as frequent as we were before the WCG moved to the other side of the world), so I clicked on the link. It took me to their Holiday Adoption page, where you can “adopt” a hippopotamus for Christmas. It wasn’t the adoption info, though, but the picture on the page that drew my eye. I’m still a bit (a lot) jet-lagged, but it looked very familiar.

Because, as it turns out, I took the picture.

The Earth Isn’t Flat, We Shouldn’t Be Either

I hate 3-D movies. The reasons are numerous:

  • They’re too dark. It’s like watching a movie with sunglasses on. (Because you are, literally, watching a movie with sunglasses on.)
  • In 999,999 movies out of 1,000,000, 3-D adds nothing to the experience.
  • They’re too dark.
  • They cost more, because the studios think we’re stupid enough to pay extra money for the “privilege” of watching a movie with sunglasses on.
  • They’re too dark.
  • Also, they’re too dark.

The Lull

It’s Saturday. Tomorrow is Easter, the day we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection. A lot has been written about that day, starting with the Gospels (Matt 28, Mark 16, Luke 24, John 20) and extending almost ad infinitum to the present day.

Yesterday was Good Friday, the king of all mis-named days in honor of the King of Kings. A lot has been written about that day, too (Matt 27, Mark 15, Luke 23, John 18:28ff).

But today’s Saturday, and no one writes about Saturday.
