Call Me Maybe, Olympics, and Tacos

I don't think I've even heard the song "Call Me Maybe" all the way through, but every time I hear it, I picture her singing it:

Speaking of which, I am interested/excited to see what the new Arrested Development season and movie will bring.

Well, in the battle of the bottom feeders, the Twins beat the Cubs in their first skirmish. It's more like a war of attrition. This has not been a good couple years for Minnesota sports. All that could have made it worse was for the Vikings to get shipped off to LA a la the Minneapolis Lakers. And in other sports news, I keep forgetting that the olympics are this summer, and then I remember and get excited all over again! I love the way you can be root for your country without anyone being on the other end of a missile strike, the way Bob Costas sits cross-legged in front of a fire (I guess that's more winter olympics) and tells you what's on the agenda, the poignant feature story that has you cheering for a woman from a country formerly a part of the larger Soviet Union, the national anthems of the gold medal winners as you see someone achieve a life-long dream for themselves and their country. Really, what's not to love?

Also, I'm about to watch the Christmas episode of The West Wing, which, if you remember my earlier posts about Christmas episodes in general and West Wing in particular,  you realize that this could be a perfect storm of awesomeness.

My mom and sister are in town today and tomorrow, so tonight my mom is making tacos because she's basically the best mom in the world. As an added bonus, Matt, Elsa, and Lucia Johnson are coming over for dinner! Also, they will get to hear me preach tomorrow! I'm preaching on Psalm 130,  De Profundis, "Out of the depths." So, if you're looking for a feel good sermon, come on over to ResCov at 10:30!

And with that, I'm going to go practice my sermon. Later.
