Over the past few months, during my final law school exams, the bar prep and then the actual bar, I came to know God, through those experiences and others, as something fundamentally different than what most people think of when they think of God. The notion that God is a kind old man that sits on a cloud listening to orders from all of us all day long, "bless me, God; do this for me God" couldn't be further from the truth. Evangelicals just make me laugh. Think you can do anything and just say yes, God, I believe in you and gain eternal salvation? How dumb can you be? To me, God is a beautiful woman, the mother of earth.

God is also not kind. The God that a lot of people subscribe to is one that directly conflicts with the God we all know and love in the Old Testament, the God that burned down villages and slaughtered women and children. I think God is involved in our lives, but allows us to do anything we want. Sometimes she will play tricks on us. Sometimes she'll teach us lessons. Sometimes she will do nothing. It's all a game to our dear Lord, for her entertainment and ours. There have been too many coincidences recently for there not to be a higher power at work.

All I know is I have never been more certain in the existence of God and never more afraid of what she will do in my life next. Like all God fearing people, I am just along for the ride.

his excessive sleeping is a sign of depression.

I think it has been established that he is depressed. The anger and  crying episodes along with the excessive sleeping means it is pretty obvious. I think he also said at one point he was.

Maybe testing our students could be worked into a program for the poor to have better access to those tests, but otherwise I'm not really happy about subsidizing people who can afford to take the SAT. A lot of colleges are going away from the test anything, and I don't know if the regional government needs to be subsidizing the College Board.  They have enough money.

Bushie, how much do you sleep per day on average? Do you consider this normal and nothing to be ashamed of as well?

When I'm working a full day and sometimes even on weekends, I sleep on average 7.5-9.0 hours sleep.  I normally only take a 2 - 2.5 hour nap once a week.  Last Wednesday and today were completely abnormal.

Once a week? You nap almost daily unless you work a full day. Don't lie to yourself.

Girls were married off and knocked up at 13 all the time centuries ago. Even in early America.

I, Duke, do solemnly affirm that I will faithfully execute the office of IDS legislator and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the Republic of Atlasia, so help me Dave.

Thank you for the appointment, dear maxwell.

Like a woman you want to leave but continues to offer her bed to you, the IDS keeps calling back to me, and I just can't resist the feeling of being back deep inside her legislature. I guess I'll never really be able to retire. Tongue

im sure bushie got another one of his 'doctor's notes.'

but he is still fired.  id be surprised if the boss doesnt tell him to go home tomorrow.

I wouldn't be surprised if he is fired tomorrow, but I could also see him sticking around for a few more weeks until some unforeseen company or illness causes him to miss more time.

I'm at a loss as to how his parents have refused to put their feet down over these expensive habits and distractions.

Instead they're eager to keep feeding this lifestyle. Huh

Its hard to feel bad for his parents, because they are as responsible as he is. They never are tough on him and basically coddle him like he's 10 years old, and he acts like he's a little boy.

It's truly a tragedy though. The reason they do it is because of how unhappy they are in their marriage. Their greatest fear is for him to grow up and leave them alone with each other. So they coddle him and keep him around regardless of how worthless he's become.

He'll be let go by the end of next week if not before. I wouldn't rule out Monday/Friday if he makes it back by then. I don't care how nice his boss is, they won't keep an employee around that can't make it through 2 weeks before skipping work due to illness.

I woukdnt be surprised if he's lacking oxygen to the brain and his body. He sleeps way too often for something not to be wrong. Taking a 5 hour nap and still sleeping a full night isn't normal.

You're expendable. Your boss doesn't even need you there. Remember when your last boss cut your hours?

You'll be out of there in another week.

If you're already taking time off from your a week in, you're done. It's a temp job anyway, they just want bodies to fill the seats.

How you can continue to ignore obvious signs is just mind boggling to me. It happens at every job.

I wish I had a sports package. I got an offer for one for $4.99 for the next year, but I'm not sure it is worth it.
