Random Gutchecks

Inspiration: Twitter. Mood: guilt. Reason: longing to connect with a new post. Situation: should be in bed, sleeping.

***
My friend Josh went to see Prince Caspian tonight. Not saying I'm envious or anything, but...

***
I started writing a book on Caspian over a year ago. I got as far as one chapter, ran it past two of my literary Ph.D. friends, then put it down and never got back to it...

***
I want to actually complete and publish a book one day. It may take more than a day.

***
I dropped my brand new Katana II cell phone into shark laden waters in Terra Ceia Bay a week and a half ago. It was a camelback breakingstraw. I've been fighting mild depression since then (nothing worrisome, just a slight valley). I jumped in, but couldn't save it.

***
We caught two small sharks in the same spot the next evening. I think mamas were giving birth nearby.

***
Ministry challenges, tragedies, some regrets, daily living have been heavy.

***
My father-in-law's baseball team, the MCC Lancers, finished "Runner up" in the state JUCO baseball tournament. Great job. We all wanted to see them go to Grand Junction for the World Series.

***
I've started two posts within the last 10 days. Couldn't finish either one.

***
Did I mention: My friend Josh went to see Caspian?

***
I wonder if Vicki Beeching has been to see Caspian yet. She speaks the language and all...

***
Dave is still boycotting his blog.

***
Carmen's posts have been really thoughtful and funny. Carmen is regularly tweeting.

***
I'm co-teaching a "Christian Thinking" class at church, starting next week. We revised it after the first time we taught it. Should be better.

***
MCC asked me to teach philosophy and ethics courses. No time. Bummed.

***
Josh is probably finishing Caspian right now. Wonder if he'll tweet about it?

***
Twitter rocks. Wish I had a cell phone.

***
Vicki Beeching was the first person I know to start with Twitter.

***
I should go back now and put links and labels on this post.

Call your BFF and go see Caspean (don't worry there's a few others of us who haven't seen it yet and won't get to see it until it's on DVD).

Sorry about your phone, but at least you didn't become shark bait.

I'm looking forward to your book - one day (but it will probably take more than one day to read it).

And remember, take heart!!!!

What... Caspian dies I didn't see it yet...oh man what a bummer...

Josh Lauritch said...

bill, i was gonna text you about your first tweet which made my laugh out loud (i think the kids just say lol) but then i realized some shark would most likely reply so i decided to comment on your blog.

Now THAT is a way I could actually BLOG ... just short, sweet points of the day or thoughts. I like it!
Saw Narnia -Prince Caspian last Friday night... good movie.
With the "tweeter" mentions I had to look up WHAT it was and low-and-behold, found out that I (in fact) TWEETER! Ain't that just the coolest thang!? LOL
Love ya Bill. (I read your BLOGS). Wendy

I need to go see Prince Caspian so I can hand out the rest of the "Chronicles of Narnia" gospel tracts that I have left over, to those in the theater. I got them from livingwaters.com, but they don't sell them anymore, unfortunately. Anyone reading this comment who is interested can, however, send an e-card, have your unsaved friends listen online to the gospel message, or download the MP3 from:
