Sports Night @ 12:15 am

Current Mood: cheerful

So life is good, the last week. Totally chill, for the most part. I've been staying up late to catch Sports Night, because I'm a sad, sad sack of man, but I'm okay with that, and it's given me time to play a lot of Twisted Metal. ;) And Gordon has finally bowed out, so Casey is back in the game, which means it's all been worthwhile. =)

And work is going well. Slower than I'd like, but I feel like I'm learning and making slow progress. I still suck at focusing, but I'm getting better...(?) Well, I hope so. I went to the Chia grill tonight, which was cool. Basically it was me hanging out with strangers drinking beer and eating sausage. But it was more fun than that probably sounds. :) I've been reading Dan Barker's book, Losing Faith in Faith, which is just incredibly cool. I finally feel like I'm getting some inkling of what it's like to be a believer. Barker is able to explain things in ways few other people ever could, because he's been in the center of both sides of the game. Kind of like my dance teacher in college who could communicate so amazingly with the techies because he'd started out as an M.E. Or, well, opposite, but still very cool. =) Finally someone who can explain not just why atheism makes sense, but why it's so hard for atheists and theists to hold meaningful dialogues about it. I spent a lot of the last two workdays reading instead of working as a result. Fascinating stuff.

Other than that, I have little to report, so I'll see you all in Roman hell.

Yeah! Sports Night is a good show!

Just commenting on the part of your post that had the least substance...

Sports night is one of the few shows that i miss about not having cable. My visit home also had me watching a show on MTV that is sort of a Real World meets Survivor where a bunch of twenty somethings train for 5 weeks to be WWF wrestlers. The training is "administered" by actual WWF peronalities. God help me but i was captivated for the half hour duration. I do however lament the loss of the music video as an art form.

Now then who is the book by and where do i need to go to get a copy?

You're gonna feel really silly when you read through my post again... As to where to buy it, it should be in any major bookstore, probably under comparative religion (thats where they bury the freethought). I got my copy from Amazon, and you can probably buy a copy from www.ffrf.org in a pinch.
