Seis de Mayo!

So…what’s been on Glo’s mind lately…well…a lot…much of it unrelated…I feel a ramble coming on.
  1. Goos and I are thinking about getting an open mic off the ground for the summer. We’ll see how this goes. There really is nothing to “do” in my current town aside from going to the movies, dinner parties or game nights if you’re not into clubbing or bar hopping. We’d like to change that. At least for the summer. haha.
  2. Working 8am-5pm right now. It’s a welcomed change of pace. Going back to regular schedule in about 2 weeks.
  3. I was in my office thinking about people my age with children…I can’t even imagine Goos and I as parents. It’s really weird even thinking about it. I want kids but wow…how would it work? Guess we’d make it work like everyone else.
  4. I love this chick's locs. Her hair is SO thick. Tried to listen to her music…Didn’t like it as much. Well…at all. Shouts to Holistic Locs for introducing me to her. Don't think I'd ever freeform or go the holistic route BUT I can still appreciate her beauty.
  5. I feel like I need a “Swagger Wagon” after watching this. #dontjudgeme
  6. Why do I feel the need to read more than one book at a time? Still reading Shadow Rising but I’m not satisfied. Talked to J.Nicole about reading Working While Black…we’ll see. Saw it in Books-A-Million the other day.
  7. Speaking of books, I’m working through the gospel of Mark with hubby.
  8. Speaking of the Bible, PB is finishing up Numbers. We’ve been in Numbers since 2008. I laugh as I type that because it seems so long. There was a 16 week break while he was on sabbatical but either way, he’s thorough as all get out. I’m glad he takes preaching line by line so seriously. Some pastors don’t....and who knew there was so much gospel in the book of Numbers, anyway? I know I didn't.
  9. Found ExitChurchianity a few days ago. My only gripe with the whole “I hate the Institutional Church” crowd is what I saw here at EC. The blanket statements about the so-called “institutional church” sound more like gripes against a particular denomination. I know there are churches who engage in the behaviors the blogger discusses but, I think s/he has thrown the baby out with the bathwater. Realized that this blog is probably FaithandReason's site.
  10. Cinco De Mayo at the Carroll's last night. Japanese food and cheap wine. Didn't eat Mexican vittles but did enjoy good conversation.
  11. Iron Man 2 tomorrow! Woop!


  1. Just for the record, I think you and the Goos would/will be phenomenal parents :)

  2. As a parent you always find a way! You have no choice ;) Swagger Wagon was awesome btw. Wow, LOL "Back 'er Down"

  3. Thanks Laurel :-)
    @Alex...the Swagger Wagon is amazing...

  4. 1. Do it! That sounds like good clean fun!

    5. I love that! LOL. The mother is all G'ed out.

    7. You and me!

    9. SO you found that blog...sooo much to say about that one. That blog is FaithandReason's blog. I'm actually friends with her on Facebook...beautiful woman, but...some things I am concerned about. I'll just leave at that. (in public terms)

    10. I gotta see Iron Man 1 first, LOL. Yea, I'm late, I know...
