One of the reasons for my very long overdue update posting, is because of the advent of the return of the many, many shows after the very, very long hiatus. I miss them all. You name it, I probably am downloading them right now.
My two new favourite shows are 'Greek' and 'Entourage', which both are awesome in their own rights. But more importantly, it is the return of 'Gossip Girl' (XOXO!), 'Heroes' (Milo!), the CSI franchises (Grissom!), 'House' (Hugh Laurie!), and 'Supernatural' (El Deano and Darling Sammy!) that have me reeling from excitement and being all preoccupied by the too many shows bombarding me almost every day of the week now. Who doesn't love some drama, comedy, and scary sci fi looking stuff every week now, eh? TV is looking good this season around. There are other shows that I am keeping up to date with, like 'Prison Break', 'Monk', and 'Dexter'. And then some.
Anyways, things are floating around. Happenings, goings-on and stuff. I'm much too lazy and tired to recap them from the deep recesses of my
brian brain so I'm just going to extol some shallow fangirling type writing to keep things light since I've already started the ball rolling about my fave shows this season.
OMFG GG XOXO!! I love, love the second season of 'Gossip Girl'! How much do you love their clothes, their cattiness and the sheer awesomeness that is GG? It's so over the top but you can't help but salivate over the insaneness and suck up all the craziness of it all. Half the things that they do don't even fathom in reality simply because underage kids for example can't just get a drink in a bar so easily in NYC. I don't care how rich they are, you just can't do that! In any case, then there's also the lavishness of their clothes, bags, heels, and hair which don't make any sense in a private school no matter how lax the dress code is. But I guess a girl has to make do with what little leeway that they can get out of making their uniform as
slutty perverted individual as they are able to without being told to go home and change. And that without even mentioning yet the mad dramaness that these kids go through on a daily basis, from slutty blackmailing MILFs, an evil genius plotting a Queen Bee overthrow, and playing truant with fashion houses to sleeping around with toy boys and a stepson.
Dun dun dun, then there's 'Heroes'. The first episode of the new season doesn't seem to be as suspenseful and tight as they could have made it but nevertheless I am still going to be watching the show as closely as I can, only because of the hotness that is Milo and Weevil from 'Veronica Mars' making an appearance. Wee!
And of course, not forgetting my other love child, 'Supernatural'. God, it's been way too long Dean and Sam. You can't put down a Winchester kid for too long before an angel comes and pluck them out of the burning inferno down there. I can't believe it's taken them four seasons to finally come around to dealing with the concept of angels and God and the Devil. I can't wait for the supposed Apocalypse to come at the end of the season and see what happens to the kiddos and the world.
Okay, I think I've rattled off for way too long already. Time to get back to sucky reality where the pretty clothes are way too expensive, I don't get to fight evil bad guys who cut off the top of your head to look into your brain or black smoky demons who inhabit innocent peoples' bodies, and I don't live in West Hollywood or NYC to check out the fancy schmancy celebs at the local Coffee Bean or hip Greenwich Village.
When was the last time I actually talked about anything else that didn't involve the topic of me, myself and I? I mean well, since this is my blog, I suppose it's natural and a given that the main subject of this blog would be ME. I don't even like talking about myself outside of this blog with friends, family or a stranger. But here, I can blab on and on about anything and almost everything that involves myself in it even though someone might get hurt from reading this. Not that I've intentionally wanted to hurt anyone with my writing which I really hope I did not and will not do at all.
Anyways, the point is, I guess I'm just tired and bored of simply replaying my life in slow motion and put in writing when some remotely interesting and sometimes exciting event happens in my life. I want to return to my previous life of blogging where I can simply talk freely about anything and everything that didn't necessarily involve ME in the picture. It is definitely a hard thing to do and keep up, I can witness to that, but it's worth a try, eh?
Last night's prayer and worship meeting at my local church was a good one. For the special reason that it was the last meeting of the course thing that I have been attending weekly since four weeks ago. It recapped all the things we have learned and applied to our lives of what worship really is, was, and should be. I guess I still have a lot to learn about attempting to live a (w)ho(l)ly virtuous life. It's definitely a learning and ongoing process even for the senior pastor who's half a century old already but still look about ten years younger than other people his age.
It definitely can be stressing and awkward to explain to people of why I go to church, why I serve in church, and what I do for the life of the church so willingly even when I really don't have to. I try to keep it simple that I just figured that I could help out in some area of it and along the way make some cool new friends whom I would never have had the pleasure of talking to if I just simply attended Sunday morning service every week like it was a ritualistic event. It's a very organic experience, if you want to put it that way, as in that you grow as the people and the church grows.
It's taken a long time to get to this point in my life where I can comfortably say that I follow God and not a religion. To understand that it is not Christianity, the religion, that I subscribe to, but it is about having a relationship with God that is what we all strive for. Identifying oneself as a Christian is a straightforward and nonsensical way of telling others the fact that you have a relationship with Him and that you can then explain to people that way. Frankly, there are Christians out there that terrify the hell out of me with their ritualistic, superiority attitude and condemnation of everyone who doesn't read the bible.
I confess that I was one of those lacklustre followers of God that didn't attend church or read the bible but would admit that I was a Christian albeit not a very good one if someone should ask. There would be that moment of hesitation to explain why I didn't attend service regularly and of why I was one even. In all honesty, I didn't understand it myself either and I would just go along with it that I was born into a Christian family but that we just weren't very strong in maintaining that relationship with Him. It doesn't mean that we lost our faith, it's just that we the spectating Christians who look and listen but do not do.
Alright, see how this has become another boring post of ME. Pfft. Maybe I just can't ever escape this cycle. It is MY blog and if I actually started writing about other people and stories and events, it will just turn itself on me about what I think and I should do about it. It's oxymoronic that I should even want to attempt to do anything but write about what I know because that is all I know and should write about.
With that said, my life of course doesn't revolve around the church. I do do other things and meet other people and want to explore new things every day. Attempting to strengthen possible future relationships and obtaining new skills are the only vague outlook of my life that I can share right now. So run off and do something unorthodox in your life now and maybe you might discover some sort of revelation that you never thought even existed.
