The Church of What's Not Happenin' Now

I forget where that slightly altered line comes from.

The fact is, I doubt I have a dozen fully-firing neurons at work in my head right now.

I am in VBS melt-down. The sessions are over, but we still have the Sunday Morning Presentation (aka controlled chaos) to get through. I've also been pulling all-nighters (with a couple of short naps when even the padded toothpicks no longer kept my eyelids apart) to get a huge emergency project done for the most part-time of my day jobs...is my agency ever going to bill the boss big-time for this one! Why couldn't it have hit on any week except VBS week?

Anyway, I'm too dazed and confused to do the Friday Five, even a day late, or find an appropriately cute photo, or anything else. Madeline Kahn's Lili von Schtup is singing in my brain again..."I'm tired, so tired."

Think I'm gonna go catch a few zzzz, then it's off to finally finish this project. If any of the 11th hour preachers stop by, peace be upon you and those to whom you proclaim the Word tomorrow. And say a prayer for me as I lead the music, especially the pre-schoolers in that most profound of songs, "The Good Shepherd" ("If I get lost like a little sheep, BAAA, BAAA, Jesus will find me.") Hey...come to think of it, that ISN'T all that unprofound.

Jesus, I'm tryin' not to get too lost here. Thanks for keeping an eye on this pudgy ol' sheep.

I can only imagine how tire you are. Hope sunday's chaos went well. And hope the other job gets down with minimal problems.

Didn't you just love Madeline Kahn's Lili von Schtup. I can here her now.

It was from comediene Flip Wilson's imitation of Rev ____ ?? Can't remember the name of the Rev. But I can hear Wilson saying, "from the Church of What's Happenin' NOW."

Get some rest!

P.S. I tagged you for a book meme.

Oh, thanks! I sort of remembered that the other night as I was falling asleep...didn't bother to go back and correct myself! LOL

Thanks for the tag--I think! At the risk of sounding just as ignorant as I am, what do I do?

Ah...don't answer that yet! I bet if I pay The Owl's Song a visit, I will find out!!
