Crisis averted

Thanks for the advice and kind words, just what my ego needed to help me along. I have also been thinking that with the mad summer we have just had and all the travel and vistors in October that I am probably a little tired.

I am off to speak in England next week, a young leaders day on the Saturday and then Tracy and myself are speaking at a friends church on the Sunday. We are all going which should be cool. We get back on the Wednesday then I fly to Belfast on the Thursday for a time with some friends and a chance to speak at the methodist youth thing called autumn soul. So I need to spend this week digging deep.





Anyway, just in case you didn't know I am a huge charity shop fan, I love clothes and shoes but don't like paying full price. In fact it's an obsession, this may surprise you but I have about 20 pairs of shoes, a few I have bought at charity shops. Tracy calls them dead mans shoes. Well last time I was in England I managed to land a pair of loakes, they retail at £98 I got them in oxfam for £7.00 I am glad they didn't bury the chap in them when he died. Whoever he was he has blessed me. God rest his soul.


One day I want a pair of handmade cowboy boots preferably in ostrich leather, I am not gay, just fancy wearing them around the house, with shorts in the summer or in the evenings by the pool.

Alternatively if I had a spare $3000 I would get these Nile Hornback crocodile boots no crocodiles were deliberatly hurt in making these boots, just roadkill crocs only.

I think that all good shoes must have leather soles, it bugs me at weddings when people spend loads on a suit, but neglect to get a decent pair of shoes.

A good sole is everything.

oh my gosh. You are so flippin adorable. Yep, you still manage to surprise me.

Before I wondered, but now I'm convinced ...you are definitely metro.

Have a great time with Tracey and the kids and rock the house when you preach.

'flippin adorable','metro' and 'rocking the house' - what sort of planet are you living on? Do you realise what a sycophantic idiot you are? People like you make non-Christians gag.

Don't know who you are and I don't believe in comment moderation. You sound angry and a little uptight. Great that you have such an understanding of "non-christians". Please leave off the slating others on the blog. Cheers.

i've been working in my mum and step dad's 'mission' charity shops for a while now. some great bargains to be had. few months ago i bought a pair of stars and stripes, converse baseball boots for one noop. ps those cowboy boots are definately a little camp. pps ... annonymous, do you like hanging around the 'christian' blogs just to make yourself sick, coz that's a bit weird?

i think the anonymous blogger is entitled to their opinion, certain of the phrases used by the girl are a bit alien to people,also if someone 'non-christion'is looking at this and other sites maybe their searching for something.is it wierd?? paul heasley

'flippin adorable','metro' and 'rocking the house' - what sort of planet are you living on? This would have been fine for me. I have no problem with that. It's this stuff that bugs me:Do you realise what a sycophantic idiot you are? People like you make non-Christians gag.

Flippin adorable, metro and rocking the house are not christian phrases, just North American ones.

My little comment about non christians, was just me feeling a little peeved as i don't like it when someone assumes they can speak for a whole batch of people, especially when they won't even attach there name to it.

I also don't really like defining people by what they are not, and personally don't use the term non christian.

Opinions are great, but they are just that "opinions", positions people take to bolster their positions.

My blog may occasionally appear wierd but it is just what goes through my head, I want my readers to see me for who I am not what I think I should be.

I'm scared now that I know my brothers read my blog!

It was you Paul, you grumpy old git, I laughed when I found out.

unless i knew north american terms i would find those terms strange. debate is good,but what i find strange is that with this blog are you letting people get to close to you, do they think they own part of you. paul ps. it was for a reaction

Hey Paul

Perhaps next time you're looking for a 'reaction' you might want to think about how you make another human being feel- glad you were able to get your rocks off at someone else's expense.
But thus do I counsel you, my friends: distrust all in whom the impulse to punish is powerful!

weaksauce trolling

dave wiggins said...

fair point Paul ... maybe the annonymous people are just simlply interested>

Karen said...

Wow. Glad I can help stir things up on your blog Brian. Let me know if you need any more lingo phrases and I'll send it your way. I've got tons more. I usually use them in bars so the "non-christians" gagging can beat the crap out of me. Oh sorry..I used crap. Should I have used "shit"?

And just to bring it back to shoes...

"I think that all good shoes must have leather soles, it bugs me at weddings when people spend loads on a suit, but neglect to get a decent pair of shoes."

And the suave car salesman in the natty suit with the crap shoes. I mean come on!

One cannot have too many shoes. Especially those that are on sale and in your size. They are meant to be yours.
