Creativity in Church

Give a person an old-school version of an iPad (read: chalkboard) and some chalk during a church service – this is what they come up with. Every week I collected these little treasures before wiping down the tablets.

Video: Despicable Me’s Best of Agnes

I don’t know how I managed not to see Despicable Me in the two years since its release, but I made up for it two days ago on iTunes. Can I just say: Loved it! I thought it was going to be about some crotchety villain doing bad stuff. Somehow, I totally missed the part […]

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Church

So, I volunteer at my church on Tuesdays to help with cooking.  It’s funny that I’d volunteer for this because I don’t particularly like cooking.  I do, however, love to talk and that’s what we do while we’re cooking so it works out beautifully.  Actually, that’s not true.  I like cooking, just not on a schedule.  Only […]

Melissaisms

[insert word]-sickles:   Fingersickles = cold fingers.  Melissasickle = cold Melissa. BP:   Big Plan.  As in, “Hey, what’s the BP for tonight?  Dinner and a movie?” Foofy:   Sticking up, out, or all over the place (as in a bad hair day). Futz:   To fiddle around with something until it is ruined beyond repair. Habawa?:   A question.  […]

Video: A Pep Talk from Kid President to You

This is truly inspiring. Erm, it’s maybe a little humbling, too, when a kid has to tell you obvious wisdom, but this is touching and funny and makes you think. And, c’mon, he’s – like – as cute as Emmanuel Lewis from Webster. Hey, we are all on the same side.

Monkee Money

You may or may not know this about me, but I had a major one-sided love affair with The Monkees from the time they started playing the series reruns back in the 1970s. In fact, by the time I was in grade 7, I had a full-on crush on Davy Jones. So much so that […]

Good News: 14-Year Old Chef

You know how I like to pass on good news. Goodness knows we are all inundated by bad news every minute of every day, so it’s nice to see articles like this. 14 years old and the kid gets to work in a restaurant in LA?! At 14, I could barely boil water!! And even […]

Clean Joke: Police Emergency

Another one that cracked me up. This is the (probably not) true story of George Phillips of Meridian, Mississippi, who was going to bed when his wife told him that he’d left the light on in the shed. George opened the door to go turn off the light but saw there were people in the […]

Clean Joke: Knock at the Door

Okay, I love clean jokes.  You never feel guilty telling them in front of your grandmother.  I stumbled on this one today and it cracked me up, so I had to share! A new pastor was visiting the homes of his parishioners. At one house it seemed obvious that someone was at home, but no […]
