Monday Musings

The sun. We fear it, we loathe it, we need it. Let's muse.


Was watching the View this morning (what, weren't you?) and Whoopie Goldberg expressed her doubt that the moon landing ever happened. So this is what stay at home moms feed themselves day after day. No wonder they have that look in their eye. I thought it was all the breast feeding.

------------

At the beginning of the year, I predicted that the emergent church would cease to resemble Christianity in any meaningful way. Here you go folks:

Tony Jones thinks it's hilarious to call conservative Christians gay. That's trekking in new comedic territory. I can play that, too. Hey Tony, your glasses make you look gaaayyyyyyyyy.

And Brian McLaren can't get through one of his quasi-mystical musings without referencing three of his own books.

A new kind of Christianity indeed.

------------

Words really don't describe how bad the last season of Roseanne was, do they? Wait, yes they do. Strained, indulgent, contrived, melodramatic... Words are great.

------------

But only one word describes Sec. Sebelius' performance on Meet the Press yesterday. Yikes.

My question, did the Obama administration just assume the CBO would reinforce its claim that insuring millions of people would be free? 'Cause they sure don't seem prepared, here.

------------

Used a gift certificate at the Chambers Kitchen on Friday, which you won't be able to do, because it's closed (and soon to be replaced by a D'Amico restaurant). Competent food, but who in Minneapolis is looking for an experience this stifling? Apparently nobody was.

------------

Hopefully, a better future awaits Papa's pizza in North Minneapolis. I wouldn't go all the away across town for it (thought I've gone all the way across town for worse), but the pizza is good, the atmosphere is the anti-Chambers, and Surly's half-price during happy hour.

Speaking of pizza on the north side, Scoreboard pizza wasn't too shabby either. I've never been a fan of the "cracker crust" style that is so popular in Minnesota, as it's usually not crispy, and has way too much sauce. Not so in this case, and it's cheap.

So there you go. If you're stuck here, you have options.

------------

I'll refrain from commenting on my experience at Bangkok Thai Deli, other than to note that they will be in a new location in a couple of months, and that they are probably worth another visit at that time.

------------

No more musing.

I battled the sun this weekend and lost.

People still watch "the View"??? Weren't there any reruns on?
