There have been many writings about this subject but never, that I can think of, written about like it will be here. Here we will explore just what is the bride of Christ and what it means to those, or rather the haters that call themselves Christian. We will also look at just what the word Christian means, not what people just say it is.
What is the Bride Of Christ?
In the new testament Christ is referred to many times as the groom or bridegroom with the Church being referred to as his bride. Also in the old testament there are many references to God’s people being the bride of the divine. I wonder if all the religious haters out there have even read the books that they claim to hold so dear. If they did, maybe they would not be so judgmental about everyone else and would mind their own business and look to themselves before judging others. (To all those Englishcrats out there, its a long drawn out sentence for a very good damned reason) With all these references to the divine being the groom and the church or gods people being the bride you would think that the hypocritical Christocrats would be more understanding and giving. If only that were so, there would not be so many problems in this world. Read more...(1509 words, 1 image, estimated 6:02 mins reading time)
Buzzled(adj.)Right now I am buzzled. This is that feeling when you’ve had a really nice little drink, but can still focus enough to do simple tasks like cleaning and cooking easy meals, so long as knives are too much of a problem. Buzzled is a state in which one really should not drive in, but simply stay put and enjoy the little bit of a ride that has been given to you by way of the various breweries and distilleries of the world.
Being buzzled is fun for the short amount of time that it stays with you, and it helps ease the pain if you are sore from a hard or stressful day at work. Many people look forward to becoming buzzled as soon as they can get to a full service restaurant or even places like the Mills Av. Liquor Lounge, where they can find other people that are getting buzzled along with them. The best description of buzzled in pop culture has to be in Billy Joel’s song “Piano Man”, but some of his characters got a little more than buzzled as his story progressed. So for those of you who just got off work, and a looking to be buzzled, here you go…
The Lagsn. A symptom of a type of frustration that can happen whenever work or play involves dealing with the Internet. This is often caused by having a weak connection to the Net. It is more likely to happen in rural areas, since service providers tend to not take the needs of rural customers seriously, even though there might be that farmer’s daughter who is a geeky gamer, and spends her weekends playing World or Warcaft or Guild Wars. It can also happen at work when a credit/debit card line is being very slow due to overuse, especially at a business’ peak transaction time, such as a fast food or pizza place on a Friday night. This can also occur on various order-taking apparatus due to the same thing. Read more...(232 words, 1 image, estimated 56 secs reading time)
Princess (or Prince) Snobby-Snootsn. This person thinks he or she is of nobility, and will usually use any silly occasion to make themselves feel important. They could come through your gas station, local discount store, or fast food drive through, and if your computers are lagging or if you don’t set something up exactly the way they want to see it, they get all hoity-toity and pick apart every little thing they think you might be doing wrong. They could be impatient, or just particular, but they really don’t see thing from the other side. Even if they have, they forget about the unspoken rules of the service industry, like, “Do not anger the people serving or making your food.” or “Do not anger your hairdresser.” or anyone else whose business you are in. Regular people are here for the same reasons they are, but most of them are pretty cool and patient about sticking around during busy and difficult times. Prince or Princess Snobby-Snoot can be anyone from a toddler having a tantrum to an old coot that has a cranky disposition. Do your best to make sure these “nobles” are cleared from the space quickly, and the rest of your workday can go pretty smoothly.
Mediamnesia (n)That feeling you get when inundated by so many mixed messages from so many media, that you can’t remember what happened from one week to the next. You also can’t seem to remember what happened to you five years ago, or even before that, but somehow you survived long enough to get to where you are now.
So many messages, so many places and names and outlets, news networks, and so many other forms of information and entertainment, it is a wonder the average North American person can remember it all, but some of us are suffering from mediamnesia, or so the companies that run these places hope. We are scanning our phones at every stop, hoping to get a clue on what or whom might be important this day, when they or it might not even matter a week from now. Sadly, that’s the way they want us to do things. From season to season, from sports to fashion, to regular TV shows and movies, we forget so quickly, it seems as though some kind of evil spell has been placed on us, but we have no Rememberall to help us look back. Hopefully, some of us do come our senses and recall the events listed in Bill Joel’s song “We Didn’t Start the Fire” , but the further away from that timeline that we go, the more and more mediamnesia sticks around, and it is a scary place to be.
