I need all of you to stop what you’re doing and listen

I should really re-watch Anchorman. I love that movie — everything in life can be responded to with an Anchorman quote.

Anyway, I’ve got a lot of updates.

I’m about half-way through The Year of Living Biblically by A.J. Jacobs and I’m liking it. It’s not as instantaneously satisfying as his The Guinea Pig Diaries, but it’s deeper and it’s really making me think about the way I do things and the parts of my church that I agree/disagree with. I am really impressed with the job he’s doing — he’s honest but also careful to get both sides of a story before judging. Next post, I will put a review on my book club site and link it here so keep an eye out for that. You won’t want to miss it — I have gotten in the note-taking mood while reading this so I have a lot of commentary on it.

[Update: Check out my review on my book club Web site.]

Also went back to Romney today for a beginners/intermediate Pilates class — and loved it even more than before. We used this piece of equipment called a “magic circle” and it was amazingly effective. I actually just ordered one on Amazon.com to use in between classes.

Besides those bits of news, I’ve had a pretty rough week. Started out with me getting cursed at by a drunk co-worker — who did not get fired for coming in drunk or for cursing in my face. So, that was special. I have spent most of my spare time since that incident looking for a new job to no avail.

Yesterday was my mom’s birthday, so I sent her a copy of The Year of Living Biblically and a scarf, which I hear are very popular this season (via my grandma who says everyone on her show is wearing them).

Cannonball!
