Just been gmail chatting-is that what it’s called-with my boy Tim Kirkpatrick in Austrailia.  I am excited for his adventure there and hope to partner with him for missions trips and the 2011 International Wesleyan Youth Convention.  Lindsay Cameron, if you’re listening, consider this my nomination for Tim to be National Youth President.  Here’s what is up:

1.  Went to a FHTM event in Charlotte this weekend where the company founder spoke.  Got a picture with him and he is a multi-millionaire who actually got my name right.  It was an amazing experience.  He kept saying that the business is not a sit on your fanny deal, but you have to work at it.  The only difference is now you are working your own field instead of someone else’s.  The best thing about this whole business thing has been reconnecting with my childhood buddy, Alan McAlister.  If we could find our Rednecks in Florida video, we would be rich.  The opening scence involved a newspaper, a bathroom, and bass tournament results.

2.  Putting the finishing touches on my roundtable topic for FUEL in Charlotte this weekend.  Get to hang with F. Matt Rhodes and other youth pastors from the south.  Also gonna be working on some Love/Mercy stuff.  As unofficial entertainment director, I have already procured our Thursday night activity and it’s a midnight showing of Star Trek.  Best time ever was in Orlando in the church van singing the blues with B. Hill and Matty Lee.  That was a great night and we met Domique Wilkens and Pervis Ellison.  The best times are always unplanned.

3.  Excited to start a new series at youth tomorrow night, “Life Between the Gutters.”  Can I just say I was disappointed to find out that this two-handed bowler dude is not going granny style?  He’s bowling regularly but with two hands.  Bowl a perfect game granny style and then you can be on Sportscenter.

4.  We have more than twice as many teens going to youth camp than we did last year!  Still got a few to sign up so I’m hoping for at least 20.

5.  My mission trip plans keep falling like flies.  We are on Plan E right now.

6.  Karen sold her first wedding coupon books today!

7.  Hey, let’s try to spread out the Red Sox-Yankees games next year!  They just played a series last week.  Sorry Yankee Fans, but the new stadium will be your undoing.  Ya’ll have as many empty seats as the Marlins(who have 25% the payroll but a much better record).  ARod will return soon, but he will be the “butt” of jokes the rest of his career.  Guess his passing Bonds won’t be so celebrated now will it?  Come on, Pujois!

8.  That’s it.  8 is my limit tonight.  Ghosts of Girlfriends past is good.  I cried.  The last movie I didn’t cry at was Wolverine, but that doesn’t count.  I’m actually crying now.  There was a Kodak commercial.
