Fractured, Part Two

What She Wore: Green capri pants; black v-neck t-shirt with this tulle-like stuff as trim on the collar and cuffs; black, beaded mules.

What She Ate: For lunch I had the very virtuous chicken and vegetable soup. For dinner–ENCHILADAS! It’s pretty sad how much this made my day. Even better? I’ve got leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

Do I think Oprah is a Christian? Nope.

I do think that lumping her together with Obama and the Occult makes somebody look like a raging racist. I also think it’s difficult to take a religious message seriously when it’s lumped together with a book promotion. Oprah’s the devil! Prove you love Jesus and buy my book. Correct me if I’m wrong, but Jesus never once tried to get money out of me. For the record, the only church I regularly tithed to was the one that told us every week that the service was a gift to us. Nothing inspired me to whip a checkbook out of my carefully matched handbag more than that. Sometimes I feel like so-called Christians are actually working against Christ.

I bought a book on writing and it’s had a rapid affect on my blog: I’m completely blog blocked. I don’t have one thing to say, so instead I’m watching Friends DVDs and ignoring the internet as best I can.

My child is as pig-headed as I am. He’s mastered rolling from front to back with the precision of a sychronised swimmer. He’s also completely positive that he wants nothing to do with rolling from back to stomach. Don’t try it. Don’t even think about it.

He’s also getting pretty snobby about his toys. He wants the higher-level toys now–rattles and teethers are rapidly becoming as stylish as acid washed jeans. Unfortunately, he has a lot of trouble operating most toys with his lack of head control, crappy vision, and poor motor skills. The end result is a lot of work on my part to get him operating his own toys. At the end of the day I know I’m as tired as he is–maybe more.

Dawson’s Creek Season Five is just great. I’ve also found that I’ve played Dawson and the gang so often during Charlie’s naptime that putting the DVD in the machine has as soporific effect on the little tot. As the credits roll, he starts to yawn and he’s usually asleep by the first commercial break. How’s that for suggestive?

***PS: I whipped out my trusty bible and googled it–there’s no mention of a swift rise to power in the bible. This is why I think anyone talking about the bible should be required to use proper citations. That could just be the anal English teacher in me, but I don’t think so.***

  1. I agree–if you’re going to say the Bible says something, you need to cite it–chapter, verse, and version of the Bible. It drives me nuts when people just randomly attribute things to the Bible.

    Okay, now I’m confused… that isn’t really your book, is it? Is that website just a joke? Either I’m super gullible or have totally missed something here… Either way, I went from a die-hard Oprah fan to a little wary of her. I don’t have a good explanation as to why, except that some of the ideas she projects kind of give me the creeps. The sad part is, though, that there are so many areas of life that SHOULD give a Christian the creeps, should make them wary, and so far, Oprah’s the only one I’ve taken seriously. Maybe it’s all the media hype around her & that book. Who knows. There’s definitely no excuse for that, though.

    Okay, so I thought I would give you a little enchilada tip from a fellow enchilada-worshiper … Amy’s Organic Enchiladas, in my personal opinion, are the next best thing to actual restaurant enchiladas. They’re in the frozen food isle, and oh my goodness. So delicious. You should try them!

  3. Ok–after watching all that, I just have to say that somebody might be a little paranoid and crazy.

    And where in the Bible does it talk about what will happen when an international peace organization is created? I’m unfamiliar with that. I didn’t realize God had a thing against peace.

    And finally–why are so many Christians so threatened by any book that isn’t the Bible? A Course in Miracles is a distinctly Christian text. It confuses me why people who claim to be Christians would condemn a book that teaches people to live as Christ would.

    (This, though, is likely why I am not one of them and why I eschew organized religion)

    Amen Sister!!!

  5. Sorry to confuse you Haz–the website isn’t a joke. It’s actually a promotional video for a book that’s coming out. The promo is basically saying that you better be wary of Oprah and Obama and that reading their book will help keep you safe.

    If someone was looking for a better bible study on this same topic that I would recommend Beth Moore’s study on Daniel. She raises a lot of the same questions about popular culture without resorting to sensationalism.

    Jenn, I’m not sure what the deal is with that woman they called the “atheistic Jew.” Never mind that that is a complete oxymoron. I tried researching it and I couldn’t find what the controversy was about her books.

  6. How about the “international peace organization?” Any idea what that’s about?

  7. I’m sorry but I’m just laughing
    because that was a random entry! The Bible…Charlie..Dawson’s Creek…

    And you always make me crave enchiladas!!

  8. Ok, Jenn, I did some digging and I don’t know anything about the Peace Organization. Perhaps I need to buy Don’t Drink the Koolaid and find out, eh?

  9. Preach it, sistah.

    And — you go, little man. Those toes are your new best friend. Good for sucking, twizzling, someday you’ll be putting socks on ’em all. by. your. self.

  10. I am literally afraid to go to church for these very reasons…

  11. I’m a bit behind on the bird blog. Trying to get caught up. Charlie looks great!

    I find Oprah a bit sketchy to say the least. That’s all I’m gonna say bout that.

  12. Oprah is so scary! Love the blog! Your son is precious!
