Monday Miscellany

Today, I am profoundly bored.

This morning began eventful enough; as I approached the turn that leads to my office I realized that road construction had the entire highway blocked less than a quarter mile from the building. Which of course meant that I had to somehow get turned around and backtrack through some back-roads to get here. Even though I miraculously made it on time, it was still an unnecessary hassle, especially that early in the morning.

The boredom, I believe, is a result of still being drowsy from a busy weekend, combined with the fact that over half of the office staff is at a training class at a local community college today. But whatever the cause, the effect is a severe lack of motivation and, as stated above, profound boredom.

Sit Ubu Sit – Good Dog

Here’s a completely useless distraction. (One minute and eight seconds never seemed so long!)

Did I mention I was bored and unmotivated?

But it made me laugh so hard, I had to share it!

McCain would appoint 12-year-old Christian girl as Secretary of State

ST. PAUL – The reaction to John McCain’s choice of Sarah Palin for vice presidential nominee has been so positive among grass-roots conservatives that the McCain campaign is quickly moving to name even more young evangelical leaders to a potential McCain cabinet.

Yesterday John McCain stood next to Meghan Crandall and announced he would appoint the 12-year-old Girl Scout as Secretary of State, should he win the election.

“She’s a beautiful Christian girl with a lot of spunk and promise,” he said. “She has demonstrated strong executive leadership as student leader of Girl Scout troupe 312 and proven toughness selling cookies door to door.”

Given Crandall’s strong faith and church-going family, evangelicals were immediately ecstatic over the choice.

“I was in tears jumping up and down when I heard she would be appointed,” gushed one housewife from Missouri. “She is such a strong believer. She reminds me of my own daughter who is very active in Awana. I think she’ll do a wonderful job of running the State Department.”

Being considered for chief of staff: precocious 13-year-old Danny Anderson, a Bible Quiz champion and burgeoning leader at Pleasant Oaks Christian School in Pittsburgh, Pa.

And for the Supreme Court McCain says he would strongly consider Judy Brumford, a 43-year-old Sunday school teacher from Cleveland, given her “years of Bible knowledge, common sense and experience running the Sunday school department.”

As for Crandall, “She’s an energizing pick and we are confident she will grow into the job,” says a campaign spokesman.
