Does it get much better?

So I just faxed off a form that will give me some free reading materials from a certain vendor. I just needed to shared my stoked-ness with you. They are sending me my choice of reading materials and I got to choose six titles: The Church on the Other Side, Brian McLaren, SoulSalsa, Leonard Sweet, Suprising Insights from the Unchurched, Tom Rainer, Becoming Conversant with the Emerging Church, D.A. Carson, Church Re-Imagined, and Preaching Re-Imagined by Doug Pagitt. They are paying me to expand my library - how cool is that? Also in my bean-beverage job, they are providing me with free beverages and beans with which to make my own beverages. So I get paid to consume tasty bean-beverages whilst reading the provided materials - life is freakin' sweet.

Now, when you say bean beverage do you mean coffee? Becasue any other kind of bean beverage sounds sort of gross and I might pay you to drink it also.

shhhh, I'm trying to be all sneaky-like and not actually say where I work so I can't get in trouble for blogging about it.

I had no idea Bible majors could be secret agents for the FBI. Your crazy, I worked for Clark College, ryan works for outback steak house...I hope we don't get fired!! If we do can we get a job drinking bean beverages? (I would make a great secret agent.)

I'm not concerned about your bean beverages. I want free books. How do I get free books? Please help me. I need them. I want them.

Once there was an old man, sitting in his threadbare relciner, musing over the menaingful moments of his life; the meager contributions one man can make; the relationship one invests in; the prayers that are sent heavenward.
In his ample lap rested the old man's computer where words and images splashed, illuminating not only his darkened home, but also his old heart. With deft fingers, the ancient youth minister scrolled and clicked, reading the clever, humorous, and insightful thoughts of his old youth group members and their little friends.
As he linked from one blogsite to the next, the old man's heart warmed ... he sighed deeply ... and a tear fell.

Jess, bible majors make the best secret agents. Our whole plan is to infiltrate enemy territory and subvert those in the enemy's control. (I can't resist:) It's coup to be a secret agent.

Rizzle (my dizzle), free books can be yours if you become employed by a place that sells the books that you wish to receive for free. You must master your rage, or your rage will master you.

KW, you know what would be really neat? If the link to your blog worked, then the joy could be reciprocal. Either way, thanks for finding your way to my little corner of the blog-o-verse-sphere-ity-ville-etc.

Yeah, well, the thing is, I don't blog. I only accidentally setting up that blogsite when trying desperately to make my first comment earlier this year. No, I do not blog ... but I do act as the muse for many who do!

James, I can hear Ty geeking out over the idea that one might be paid to get free nerdy books--and he probably hasn't had time to read your post yet. Did you write that just to make him (and Ryan) want to be just like you?

Kevin, When Ty accidentally signed up for a blog when trying to make his first post, he actually STARTED a BLOG! And then he nagged me till I started one, too. I'm just sayin'.

Indeed, I felt a disturbance in the force . . . you know, from all the free books. I guess my set-up is just as good . . . actually, better: other people (Gina and Steve) pay for my books and bean beverages . . . nevertheless, it rocks to be you.
