If you got arrested, what the reason be?
I conducted an unscientific Facebook poll a few weeks ago. I asked the question, "If I got arrested, what would the reason be?" I don't think it's a crime, but the most popular response from my friends was "brushing your teeth while driving." This only fuels my bad-boy ego. Who else rebels by practicing proper dental hygiene behind the steering wheel? I'm definitely a rebel at heart.

At the game night I attend, one of our favorite games to play is "the game of things." A person draws a card that includes a thing, and reads it out loud. Everybody writes down a response. The responses range from funny to creepy to just plain sick. Then everybody takes turns guessing who wrote down what.
I like the game so much, I'm going to dedicate my Thursday postings to it. I will draw a random card, and write down five responses. If you'd like to join in, write a few responses of your own.

This post is from my old blog. For those who have read it before, it has been updated with one more line.
It's so hard to find a single song that paints an accurate picture of how I think my love life will end up. So, I took the initiative to parts of multiple songs together to make a mega-love song. . I set a few rules for myself. First, I can only use no more than one snippet from any given artist. Second, it has to be a song currently in my music library. Third, I'm not going to use anything that's just too plain easy.

While putting this together there are some things I've noticed. It's hard to find songs about growing old with your wife, with the exception of that Adam Sandler song in the Wedding Singer. It's hard to find "secular" music that paints a picture of love between a man and woman in a wholesome way. It's hard to find "Christian" music which doesn't portray love between a man and woman without attempting to be uber-spiritual about it. Hopefully someday I'll have my own love song to write.
I'm a Foursquare addict. Every time I think of it, I check in when I visit an establishment. This has led to me getting a handful of mayor-ships. Here's why I'm mayor now:
Walmart: What can I say? I only visit this place once every week or two, but I live in a town where Foursquare isn't used much by the locals.
McDonald's: I'm more than the mayor here. I'm "The Batchelor." It seems as though every time I visit, I get hit on by a different girl that works here. It's definitely nothing to brag about.
New York & Company: Let me explain myself... I've only checked in here a couple of times. I've entered this store with a few female friends who like to shop here.
Crosspoint Baptist Church: Everybody here is stuck on Facebook Places. I should try to show them the light (as far as location apps go.)
Pizza Hut: I buy pizza from here about once a week. I use to make my own, but it's just about as cheap to carry-out these days.
Sonic: I'm proud to be the mayor of America's drive-in. I'm a six hour drive from the nearest In-N-Out, and a 90 minute drive from the nearest Whataburger. This is the next best thing.
What mayorships do you hold? Are you proud of them?

The Mountain Three Wolf Moon Short Sleeve Tee: If you're going to try to pick up a woman, this tee will increase your chances. Girls dig wolves... or so I've heard. Read the first review for this shirt on Amazon's website, and you will be sold.
I wonder what type of father I will be and imagine what my kids will be like. I'm probably thinking a little too far ahead, since I don't see myself tying the knot in the near future. One thing I have decided is that I definitely want to have children. Who knows, maybe I will adopt if I don't get married within a few years.
Somebody please teach me these moves. You have to watch the entire video to appreciate the dancing.
Public transportation is an efficient way to get from point A to point B, but that's not what I like most about it. Living in Kansas, I travel with strangers only on rare occasions. While traveling on public transportation, traveling with strangers is the norm.
While riding the "L" in Chicago, I interacted with a great variety of people. There were a few people I tried to avoid interacting with.
