New frames... new glasses... more "I'm old and blind" glasses. :)

Wake up to a windy, sunny morning... and I could hear the skatepark calling...
We answered that call and had ourselves some big early morning fun. There were a few kids there working on their own tricks... there's always one in a group who rocks, a couple that can catch up and one or two that will always lag behind and enjoy watching. The "rocks" kid was doing and wiping out a 180 off a 7 ft drop... over and over and over... and then he got it. Awesome.  I'm jazzed about managing something new (new for me) and getting it nailed (a 180 on a convex curved vert ramp ... the "convex" has always totally thrown me off my board but today? Today I did it like ten times and I feel great about it. :D  I hovered over my goal "drop in" spot and ... just couldn't pull the stones together to try it... but it'll come. :)

Wicked wicked rain and t-storm after we got home... knocked out power for a bit... but only a bit.

Work is mental. No, really... totally mental. I'm trying to absorb all this new information form these new text books and I'm trying to get sorted on two other initiatives the bosses have me working on. I'm off to another big ass government depart tomorrow for a "sales presentation" with a room full of bosses and clients. No stress. Nope... nuh'huh. gah!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! So The Pope has issued a bull (or whatever it's called) pointing out that only Catholics will find salvation and that all the "other religions" (i.e. Anglican, Protestant) are only "communities of religious thought).  Hows it going in all those faker religions guys?
Frigg'en Popes have been a scourge on history.
Looking back through the pages of history (my bed time reading is a book called "Tables of History" - awesome btw) you can see the various Popes just messing with humanity.
But you look at the modern Popes and you think you'll see a little more understanding and even (gasp) some contemporary thought.
NOPE.
"Contemporary Thought" is definitely not on the Popes menu.
I swear there is no greater source of hypocrisy in modern society than that which lives, breaths and prospers in the confines of Catholicism. The people, the leadership, the institutions and the values... One giant mess of hypocrisy. It must be embarrassing to be a catholic these days.
