Oh, come come now, I said "unchivalrous" and "unsympathetic" not "lout" and "barbarian." You're extrapolating on my descriptives.

I did liken you to high school boys; does that make you feel young?

Phil --

You're not a nobody, and that's not a flasher. It's a bald fellow pleading with the Heavens for something.

Now I have to redesign the blog header. Swell. :-)

Kim:

Nothing makes me feel young these days. But I sincerely appreciate the effort. BTW, I checked your blog this morning. 1. I hope my wisecracking BlogSpots didn't play any part in prompting your thoughts about "Sticks and stones." (Great post.) 2. Tiger Balm is an effective remedy for gremlins. Apply sparingly to forehead.

Frank:

I knew it wasn't a flasher. I was just havin' a little fun with you. I like your new design. What I really don't get is the grainy picture in your profile. I'm guessing that's not really you. Who are you, anyway? Do I know you in a real-life context? If you're within driving distance, give me a call (661-295-5777) and let's do lunch. I'll buy.

Having glanced at Kim's sticks and stones blog entry, I was reminded of a time in one of those artsy courses in college where we were given three descriptive words about a person, and asked to provide three more that we imagined could be inferred to the described individual (given the three a priori descriptives) The words were "warm, intelligent, patient" Our "group came up with something like "fatherly, loving, and kind" Another group was given the set - but instead of "warm" as one of the words, "cold" was given - such that their list was "cold, intelligent, and patient" this one word exchanged in the group of three had the power to change the entire scope of the generated/inferred words: Words like "conniving, calculating, and evil/hateful" came up. This example was given to us to demonstrate how certain words associatively imply more than others.

That is what that reminded me of anyway.. :)

Well, the header is changed anyway. Whether that guy looked like a flasher or not, I'd think about it every time I loaded the blog.

I'm always in for free lunch, but I live in rural Arkansas. The odds of me driving up for a bit of Chinese buffet are low. However, PP needs a free lunch, so if you run into him take care of the poor lad.

I'm also not so sure that posting your phone number was a great idea. I'm not saying that Dave Armstrong and iMonk are into phony phone calls, but at the same time, some people are.

Thanks for mentioning me. *blush*

I'm interested in what you may write on this topic in the future. . .

You don't look like the guy from Princess Diaries... er, not that I saw it, or anything... it's just another guy with a goatee.

I can identify with the pizza guy. GTY was the main agent in my conversion from Finneyesque Arminian to THIS. I was predestined to say "thanks" in this comment. So, thanks.

I forgot to mention - I was delivering Chinese, not pizza. GTY works on any food-delivery type.

Kim said...

No, Phil, your antics did not spur my post for today. The one that inspired that would me little old me. Actually, I felt a little bad after calling you unchivalrous and was convicted about my motor mouth *blush*

Sherry said...

Fixed it. Thanks.

Dan Paden said...

Kind words are always appreciated, sir. Thanks.

Phil,

I think you need to design a little seal or plaque that those of us who have been blogspotted by you can put on our websites, so that everyone can know how important we are.

Interesting thing happened- a deacon at my church came up to me and said he found out I had a blog when he went to your site and saw me listed. HAHAHA

Daniel said...

Ryan

The same happened to me in reverse. I am a deacon, and my "secret" blog was spotted bu Phil, after which it was almost instantly noticed by one of the young men in the congregation. The fellow suspected that I had a blog, but since I never told him what it was called or where it could be found. He had to live in darkness about it - that is, until I was spotted! We both had quite a chuckle over it - well, I did at least. :)

Glad to see someone's reading my stuff. Thanks for the link, Phil. Peace.
