Word of the Week

Things that are Ridiculous

In the spirit of how glad I am that it is Friday, I thought I'd post a list of some most ridiculous finds this week. Any of you have similar reactions?

1. The organization Baptist Women in Ministry submissive attitude toward men in Arkansas. Read about it here.  Boy, I'm glad to be in the mid-Atlantic region. I don't even thinking about these sorts of issues anymore. People who don't accept women in ministry now baffle me.

2. The fact that I keep getting spam from companies like Gap, 1-800 Flowers, and  Giant Foods even when I "Remove" from their email list. How did some of these people get my email after all?

3. How all of Washington seems to shut down in the rain because of accidents? Doesn't anyone know how to drive in the rain around here? One day a couple weeks ago, it took me an hour and half to get to work instead of the usual 25-30 minutes it normally takes.

4. So many companies are going out of business. I've seen so many of those sign flippers this week advertising "Going Out of Business Sales." Latest on the list, I heard on the news that Ritz Camera will soon be gone. Sad. 

5. The number of trips you have to make the DMV in your county, the county you came from and the county courthouse to officially have all your ducks in a row when you move. (It took three times for me to convince the head manager at our DMV of my correct name. She didn't believe I was married even though my previous state's driver's licence listed my real name!) After many of these, everything is in order for us as offical residents of Virginia. Yea!

Have a great weekend everyone!
