On board I'm the captain

"This is what we have heard from Jesus Christ,
and the message that we are announcing to you:
God is light; there is no darkness in him at all.
If we say that we are in union with God
while we are living in darkness,
we are lying because we are not living the truth.
But if we live our lives in the light,
as he is in the light,
we are in union with one another,
and the blood of Jesus, his Son,
purifies us from all sin.

"If we say we have no sin in us;
we are deceiving ourselves
and refusing to admit the truth;
but if we acknowledge our sins,
then God who is faithful and just
will forgive our sins and purify us
from everything that is wrong.
To say that we have never sinned
is to call God a liar
and to show that his word is not in us.

"I am writing this, my children,
to stop you sinning;
but if anyone should sin,
we have our advocate with the Father,
Jesus Christ, who is just;
he is the sacrifice that takes our sins away,
and not only ours,
but the whole world’s."

1 John 1:5-2:2

FOODIE ALERT!: Nutella Shortbread Sandwich Cookies

Posted by Cory , Saturday, December 18, 2010 11:45 PM

A few weeks before Thanksgiving, The Pioneer Woman linked to a cookie recipe on her Twitter feed that I immediately had to save. It combines one of my favorite things on earth, Nutella, with the simplicity of shortbread cookies (butter? sugar? flour? yes, please). The only change I made was to sprinkle the cookies with plain old granulated sugar instead of turbinado, mainly because I'm a little lazy like that.

It really just does not get old. Jimmy Fallon plus Brian Williams plus the Roots equals so much joy.

I don't care too much for money

So, this happened:

As has become my habit over the past few weeks, I was up way, way past my bedtime early last week. Just before midnight, someone started pounding on my front door, effectively scaring me half to death. It turned out to be a police officer, armed with I can only describe as a very large gun. He told me that there was a situation in the complex involving a man holed up in his apartment with a gun, which is conveniently located directly across the parking lot from mine and that I needed to leave the apartment so they could use my living room windows as a vantage point.

Um, holy crap.

I got a lot of mixed stories between that time and the next morning watching the news; some said there was a hostage (not entirely true), others that the man was suicidal. Either way, I eventually wound up sitting in the exercise room in the main office of the complex, watching "Airplane" at 3 am.

Good times.
