OMG #4: Too Much Information…

I get spam comments on my blog all the time – pretty much daily…  Usually they are just garbage, and they get deleted immediately and life goes on.  But this morning I saw that I had a comment that had been sent to the spam area of my comments management area (sorry – couldn’t think of what that area would be called…), and I went in and checked it out.  I always check them out – just in case a real comment got pushed there on accident.  Well, much to my surprise, I see this:

100 Comments Celebration!!!

I have wonderful news!  What He Is Teaching Me (the blog…this blog…) just reached 100 comments!  That’s right!  And even though 50 or so of them are actually me replying to other people’s comments, I still take great joy in the fact that 100 different times people have written a comment in relation to one of my posts.  So to celebrate, I am going to write 100 posts today.  Not really…  I am going to post 3 or 4 different times…like the STM post I did earlier, this post, and the next one where I share a screenshot of a comment someone left about their problem with herpes…I only wish I were kidding…

Anyway, thank you for coming to the site!  Thank you for reading my mediocre posts! And thank you for commenting!  You don’t know how much I am blessed by it!!!

That’s Just Wrong… #1

Okay, so if you ever read my blog, you know that I’m not an extremely negative person. I don’t rant and rave about much, and I definitely don’t throw hissy fits. (Is it wrong that the spell checker wanted to change hissy to hussy?).  But sometimes something happens, and you just need to vent.  Well, today presented just that.  Let me explain…

In our office, where I work, people go out to eat just about every day.  About 3 times out of 10, they will come down and ask me if I want to go, to which I usually say “no” because, well, let’s face it, I’m not made out of money.  I realize that I have been labeled as a person who doesn’t socialize because of this (and also probably because there’s a sign on my office door that says “I Don’t Socialize!”…not really).  And I’m not the only one – the guy in the office next to me also never goes to lunch with them, and he’s starting to get the same kind of treatment (for our purposes here, we’ll call him “Bob”).  Well, it’s starting to bleed into other areas of the office environment.  For instance, today my boss tells everyone else in our department that he is going to be out of town – everyone else, that is, except me and Bob.  When we found out, it’s not like we threw a hissy fit (well, I didn’t…Bob picked up his chair and threw it out the window, then proceeded to punch the wall over and over while he cried and chanted Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow? …not really).  But we did feel a little left out.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, this is the reason he’s venting to us right now.  Well, you’re wrong.  The real reason I’m venting is because Bob proceeds to come into my office and tell me that the reason we kept getting left out is because everyone in the office thinks we’re “anti-social.”  At first, I totally agreed with him.  But then my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology kicked in, and I remembered that anti-social behavior is what serial killers have.  What we are exhibiting is asocial behavior.  Big, big difference…

So, for effect, here’s the definitions:

Anti-Social – of or pertaining to a pattern of behavior in which social norms and the rights of others are persistently violated (i.e., their right to not be dead..)

Asocial – withdrawn from society (i.e., shy…)

The next time someone tell you you’re being anti-social, perhaps you can give them a small taste of what anti-social behavior is really like.  It’s doubtful they’ll ever forget again…

OMG #3: How NOT To Kill An Animal…

Maybe it’s only because I lived in the deer hunting capital of Texas when I was a teenager. Maybe it’s because I’ve watched a lot of TV.  Or maybe it’s because I have common sense. But whatever the reason, I am pretty sure that, if given the opportunity (or maybe I should say, presented with the necessity), I could kill an animal. I’m not a hunter, and I don’t own any hunting firearms – I used to own some archery equipment, but I sold it and never hunted with it. But if someone said “Jeremy, there’s an animal that is suffering out there, and we need you to take this handgun, go out there, and put it out of it’s misery,” I’m 98% certain I could do it with 2 or less shots.  Sadly, not everyone can say this.

I read a news story this afternoon about a sheriff’s deputy who was sent to see about a deer that had been hit by a car and was still alive:

“…the incident began after a call came in shortly after 7 a.m. regarding a deer that had been hit by a car along Tower Road near the Alachua County Library. The deputy was sent there and found that the deer had been hit at least twice but was still alive…’the deputy didn’t know where to shoot it. He calls the sergeant, and the sergeant says to shoot it right behind the shoulder, which is the location of the heart,’ Lt. Maynard said. Instead, the deputy shot the deer in the stomach.”

And not just once – 17 times, to be exact (see the entire story here).

So what is the biggest lesson we can all learn from this?  Deer are incredibly tough animals who can live through getting hit by a car – twice – and 16 gun shots. But not 17. Seventeen gun shots kills them every time.

Excited for the Weekend!

It’s been a while since I’ve been this ready for a weekend. I’m pretty excited…  How excited, you ask?  Well, not quite as excited as this dog is excited about pop-up books. But I’m pretty darn excited.

OMG #2: I am obese :(

So I’m going along this morning, minding my own business, reading some theology blogs and having a good time. I’m learning a lot, seeing the diverse point of view held by many people who share my faith, and really not expecting anything funny. I get to this one blog, talking about the Calvinist belief that regeneration (being born again) comes before faith in Christ, and I am reading through the comments, when all of a sudden I see this:

I laughed. I laughed hard and good.  All I can say is, “oh my goodness…”

OMG!!! #1

So I said I was going to start a few new series on the blog here – stuff that wouldn’t necessarily be regular, but that would be awesome. A little something to look forward to, maybe.  Well, here’s one I’ve been wanting to start for a while, but that I haven’t had anything for. I’m going to call it OMG, which of course stands for “Oh My Goodness!” It will contain stuff that makes me both laugh, and shake my head. Here goes number 1:

This is a screenshot from my WordPress Dashboard (admin page). It’s of my referrers – Websites from which people have clicked to get to my site. You may have to click on the image to make it full size, so that you can read who my only referrer for today has been. Out of all 3 views that I have had today, only one was referred from a different site. And the site was  Yep…  That’s my audience, folks.  That’s the kind of stuff I’m attracting here at What He Is Teaching Me.  Makes me want to shake my head and say Oh-Em-Gee…
