Things I've Learned On My Trip to Cincinnati

1. In Cincinnati, Coca-Cola suffers from syrup-deficiency. I would opt for water if not for lesson number 2.

2. In Cincinnati, the water tastes like metal. I have purchased bottled water from the hotel store each day because I can not force myself to drink from the tap.

3. California is the only state in which people can be over 23 and unmarried. The more I walk around the convention, the more I'm made aware that most youth pastors over the age of 19 are married.

4. Teaching myself to use in-ear monitors is equivalent to teaching my Grandmother to use the Internet.

5. Grown men think they know the words to Bon Jovi songs, but in actuality, they only "chorus-know" them.

6. Blogger.com does not recognize the word "Bon Jovi". But it does recognize the word Doppelganger.

7. Apparently, to a majority of the world, Comic Sans and Papyrus are completely acceptable fonts.

Good news: my bag arrived this morning!
Bad news: I so badly wanted to post something that I am sitting in the bathroom typing this because my hotel roommate is asleep...

Remember I blogged from the bathroom in Prague? (The Prague blog)because you were sleeping!
#5 is hilarious. I just got home from the Billy Joel concert and EVERY ONE, including grown men, knew all the words to the songs!
#7 is hilarious too. I thought Comic Sans was for Children's Ministry only!
So glad your bag arrived!!
So good to hear from you!!
Have fun!

I lived out the harsh reality of not conforming to #3 the entire time I was a youth pastor in Texas ... people think there's something wrong with you they have to fix ...

Of course there IS something wrong with me, but that hardly seems relevant to this conversation.

Bon Jovi country songs were written for me...I know all the words...I married at 20, but I was always slow and didn't last at youth ministry, ...(and Julie), Billy Joel needs an eye lift (but I'm jealous)...I only use comic sans for my resume'

read about your car wreck...prayed for you today

I think it's pretty cool that you wanted to blog that bad...

I probably would've done that too!
