Well, I've moved from Xanga to blogger and am more or less deciding to continue blogging on into the semester. The JBJ Blog 1.0 launch, if you will. I've tried twice before and quit after a couple entries. The decisive difference is that I've realized that I don't have to update every day - or month - and still feel succesful with it. I got frustrated with the lack of options on Xanga, and Blogger lets you create as much side content as you want. And with no advertisements! You also don't have to be a member to leave comments.
I had a long theology talk with Patrick today. About 3 hours. Patrick is going with me to Egypt, my CSO (night patrol) partner, and just happens to be one of my favorite people on campus. He told me I was the person he felt most comfortable with expressing non-traditional ideas. That felt good. Possibly that felt better than if someone told me I had the best ideas of my own.
On the nerdy side, I'm pretty excited about the Apple announcements next week. It might be the ushering of an online movie store (one that actually works) or the legendary iPhone. Nevertheless, Apple has never failed to surprise and impress. Currently, my MacBook is here. Poor, lil' guy. I'm still trying to think of a name for it. Let me know if you have an idea. My Linux box is Tarpit and my iPod is Rubato.
