I’ve got my reasons

image courtesy of

We’ve started a new sermon and small group series at C3 called “Not a Fan”. Here’s a VERY brief introduction:

It’s all about being a committed follower of Jesus Christ rather than just an enthusiastic admirer. Jesus has millions of fans. Far fewer followers. I’d love to tell you I’m a follower, but I can’t honestly say that, because there are plenty of things I put before God. In Sunday’s sermon, Jeff quoted a line from a song by Nickel Creek called Reasons Why: “Others have excuses, but I have my reasons why.”

That really hit home for me. It’s easy to look at someone else and judge what we think is separating them from truly following Jesus: pride, past hurts, addiction, the Church. Heck, even religion often separates us from Him.

But with other folks, those are all just excuses, aren’t they?

It’s different for me.



Where am I today, I wish that I knew
‘Cause looking around there’s no sign of you
I don’t remember one jump or one leap
Just quiet steps away from your lead

I’m holding my heart out but clutching it too
Feeling this sort of a love that we once knew
I’m calling this home when it’s not even close
Playing the role with nerves left exposed

Standing on a darkened stage
Stumbling through the lines
Others have excuses
But I have my reasons why

We get distracted by the dreams of our own
But nobody’s happy while feeling alone
And knowing how hard it hurts when we fall
We lean another ladder against the wrong wall

And climb high to the highest rung
To shake fists at the sky
While others have excuses
I have my reasons why

With so much deception
It’s hard not to wander away
It’s hard not to wander away
It’s hard not to wander away

It’s easy to allow ourselves to believe we cling to reasons rather than excuses. In my case, I often think my biggest fear is that I ever truly give everything over to God, there are certain things that I’ll never get back. In the end, I need to get to a place where I ask God to give me what I need. Not the things I want.

How about you?

Reasons or excuses?

Twitter Update: The highly edited version

image courtesy of

I’m sort of re-thinking the weekly twitter update. I’m toying with the idea of actually writing about social media in general and Twitter specifically. I’m still undecided about that at the moment. But I do know that these posts have become really time consuming to write, so I’ve decided to start posting very edited versions of what I tweeted for the week. If you follow me on twitter (and why wouldn’t you?), you may remember that I posed the question: “What is the point of Twitter for you?” I got some very candid and interesting answers. Stay tuned for a post on that very soon. In the meantime…

The best of me (or not) on the twitter this week:

Bahamabob And the moral of the story? Write a few good books, then you can coast.

RT @Bahamabob: John Grisham’s A Time to Kill was rejected by 16 publishers before finding an agent who eventually rejected him as well

You know, when I get an email with the subject line: MUST SEE, I delete it. Because you’re not the boss of meโ€ฆ

Not that there’s anything wrong with that…

What’s up w/the comments about the Barbies in the box? It’s not like I dismembered them or anything

Just saw someone wearing a shirt that said “werewolves beware” which would have been cute if not worn by a 40yo woman.

This year’s theme: You are special. Just like everyone else. Which coincidentally was last year’s theme.

On my way to 3rd grade awards ceremony at my girl’s school.

@WriteOnRideOn If “Ifs” were fifths, we’d all be drunk.

@duane_scott Singing. Practice for Sunday morning. We also pray together & make obscure pop culture references.

@sarahmsalter Yes. I am more experienced than you are, but immaturity can be timeless.

@CandySteele No. I only accept compliments about @billycoffey’s blog. @peterpollock is the complaint dept.

@MarketerMikeE And all the people said, “Amen”

@MarketerMikeE World famous? You must have me confused with another katdish. Oh, who am I kidding? There’s only one me.

Oh, you sneaky spammers! Best salutation of the day: Always yours, Mr. Cialis

RT @noveldoctor: The best moments in writing and life are the ones that bring unscripted smiles

“If it wasn’t for secretaries I wouldn’t have a step-mom.” – Andy #theoffice

Woke up this morning w/the final scene of #24 still fresh on my mind. I cain’t quit you, Jack Bauer!!!

Now if you’ll all excuse me. I’m a little verclempt…Talk amongst yourselves…#24

Jack Bauer is THE MAN! #24

Okay….when do they start filming the movie? #24

I repeat: GAAAAAAAAAA!!!!! #24


RT @Iconic88: “Facebook is the people you went to school with. Twitter is the people you wished you went to school with. @twittelator”

So I ask you, lovely people: What’s the point if Twitter for you?

The response? “I don’t get Twitter. What’s the point of Twitter?” To which I said, the point is what you want the point to be.

The other night at a dinner party people were talking about Facebook. I said I had a facebook account, but that I preferred Twitter.

@lainiegallagher You drive me crazy. You know that, right?

@KathleenOverby Oh, wait…Don’t tell him I said that.

@KathleenOverby Yes, but @billycoffey watches an obscene amount of television.

That last waffle iron tweet was meant for @PrairieLady . Literally makes no sense when talking to myself

@katdish I couldn’t use one. It would go right next to the waffle iron I never use.

And now, I’m back inside. Stupid nature…

Not sure I like the scented body lotion I’m wearing, but the wasp in my garage seems to.

But seriously…I really need to cut my fingernails…

Don’t you hate it when people tweet stuff like, “I really need to cut my fingernails?”

@redclaydiaries Only if your grampa is a shiny vampire.

@redclaydiaries I need 6 hours of sleep. No more. I can’t explain it.

And people gonna treat you better, you’re gonna find, yes you will, that you’re beautiful as you feel ~ Carol King

You’ve got to get up every morning w/a smile on your face & show the world all the love in your heart ~ Carol King

Twitter Update: I am Hunter S. Thompson

Happy Saturday everyone! This week on the twitter, it seems everyone was taking the “Which crazy writer are you?” test. Hardly scientific, but as it turns out I am Hunter S. Thompson. No big surprise there…

The best of me (or not) on the twitter this week:

@CassandraFrear @jpwire My long, flowing mane is in no way due to sea monkey.

But if you’re not already following @billycoffey & @AmySorrells, I would highly recommend doing so. Both very special to me.

I hesitate to do #FF, because I’m not kidding when I say I follow some amazing, wonderful people & I don’t want to leave anyone out.

Me too! RT @curtharding: FF @billycoffey //He has inspired me to write better and more often.

@CassandraFrear You don’t actually think I buy any of that crap do you? (in reply to CassandraFrear @katdish Good morning, you wild and crazy shopper, you.)

@billycoffey You is. (in reply to billycoffey @katdish I am, ain’t I?)

@billycoffey You’re so cultured. (in reply to billycoffey @katdish The only noise I hear at the moment are the voices of my two favorite redneck morning radio folks.)

@amysorrells Well, don’t hurt yourself. (in reply to amysorrells @katdish I mean, it’s a good THING. Although I THINK, too, on occasion.)

@CandySteele Ooo! Do it! (in reply to CandySteele @katdish I think I’m going to have to do a ghetto version of your SkyMall post – called Craigslist. #gotridoflotsacrap)

@CandySteele Thanks. Craptastic is a pretty sucktacular word, isn’t it?

@amysorrells Get that hairbrush out and sing it sister! (in reply to amysorrells “My heart can’t possibly break . . . When it wasn’t even whole to start with . . . ” ~Kelly Clarkson)

The pages are still blank, but there is a miraculous feeling of the words being there, written in invisible ink & clamoring 2 become visible โ€“ Vladimir Nabokov

Dear major dept store: my daughter is 8 yo. Not quite ready to dress like a prostitot. Love, katdish

@JeffHolton You forget I live in Texas. And we’re all rich oil barons here. (in reply to JeffHolton @katdish You couldn’t afford me. Heard of Peggy Noonan? Kurt Vonnegut? Maya Angelou? AMATEURS!!)

@JeffHolton Wait…are you offering? (in reply to JeffHolton @katdish It’s same as “I ghostwrite for Katdish” vs. “She kinda mentioned me on her blog once, sorta.”)

How does one confuse “when I served in Vietnam” with “I never really served in Vietnam”? Just curious…

@SouthMainMuse Gaaaa! (in reply to SouthMainMuse @katdish If you start getting texts from this Tiger — it’s probably him.)

Tiger Woods is now following me. Although me thinks it’s not the golfer.

I wouldn’t know >RT @RachelleGardner: “Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.” #funnyquotes

@arestlessheart ATM? Oh…at the moment. For a minute there I thought you were withdrawing some cash. Which would be quite the multi-task! (in reply to arestlessheart @katdish doin’ okay atm – holding baby, trying to work up energy for the next thing…)

@amysorrells Hello, my little guina pig! How are you this afternoon?

@CassandraFrear Cuz she’s a cowgirl…

@CassandraFrear And @marni71 is going to be shot directly into Jon Bon Jovi

@CassandraFrear You know, @candysteele’s ashes are going to be shot out of a cannon, (in reply to CassandraFrear @katdish @jpwire Almost fell off my chair laughing! // RT @katdish Best part? Thompson’s ashes were fired from a cannon! What a way to go!)

@lainiegallagher It’s your world, Lainie. I’m just trying to live in it. (in reply to lainiegallagher @katdish I know; I can’t believe you even had to ask! :D)

@lainiegallagher Well of course you do! (in reply to lainiegallagher @katdish Yes.)

@lainiegallagher OMGoogle! Did you want a more specific test? (in reply to lainiegallagher Interesting. The quiz says I’m JD Salinger, and that I’ve been hiding for several decades. I haven’t even been alive for “several” decades!)

@jpwire @CassandraFrear Best part? Thompson’s ashes were fired from a cannon! What a way to go!

@CassandraFrear Hunter S. Thompson. So there you go…

Just took “Which Crazy Writer Are You?” and got: Hunter S. Thompson! Try it โž”

@redclaydiaries I think it means there is no spoon. (in reply to redclaydiaries @katdish I think it probably means something that u & I have such trouble w google calendar. What it means, I don’t know.)

@PeterPollock @billycoffey would be so proud. Well, maybe not the cookie dough part, but still. (in reply to PeterPollock @katdish I keep meaning to do something but apart from watch 24 and make cookie dough, I’ve not really done anything yet!)

@HeatheroftheEO Oh, he’s all Hey and Howdy to the rest of the world. You have no idea… (in reply to HeatheroftheEO I hope you get paid the big bucks to manage @billycoffey ‘s site. It can’t be easy, dealing w/ that tyrant. (I jest on Monday mornings)

@noveldoctor That’s you, Steve. (in reply to noveldoctor @katdish Just think of me as the cloud that gives the silver lining purpose.)

@noveldoctor sigh… (in reply to noveldoctor My Sbux is overflowing with shiny happy people…or shiny brilliant actors masking fathomless despair.)

@sarahmsalter Antonio the tiny wine steward. (in reply to sarahmsalter @katdish Awwww. So, now who do you hang out with at the grocery store?)

@sarahmsalter Sadly, he is gone. (in reply to sarahmsalter @katdish Say hi to the PCB for me. ๐Ÿ™‚

Why do I put off grocery shopping until there’s no food in the house? Oh yeah…because I hate grocery shopping.

DH: you’re not wearing flops to church. Son: didn’t the 1st Christians wear flops to church? Me: Snort!

@redclaydiaries Spam bots need love too. (in reply to redclaydiaries @katdish I’ll have u know I love ALL of my followers. Except the unclothed ones.)

@gabbysherri Yes. Heaven forbid Steph dip below the 4800 follow mark. (in reply to gabbysherri @redclaydiaries -Steph- Sorry. I didn’t realize It. I just clicked on your name and saw that you were “unfollowed” by me. Sorry.)

@lainiegallagher I cain’t quit you Lainie! (in reply to lainiegallagher @katdish Must be. ๐Ÿ˜€ You know you love me!)

@lainiegallagher I’m sure it’s completely coincidental. (in reply to lainiegallagher @katdish Man! How does every person I know come up with the exact same nickname for me? Inconceivable!)

@lainiegallagher I’m doing both Judgey McJudgealot. (in reply to lainiegallagher @katdish are you actually eating with your daughter, or playing on your phone?)

I’m seeing a trend.


Famous last words: No mom, I don’t need a fork.

The picture of stubborness & weinie dogness. @buddylovethedog refuses to do his bidness in the rain.

Just throw that crap away already!

Watching shows like Clean House and Hoarders makes me want to throw things at the TV.

Wow. After 9 am & I’ve yet to hear “There’s nothing to do” yet. Oh, wait. My kids are still asleep.

Enriching lives thru the power of social media. Again.

Seems I was a fountain of useless information and unsolicited advice on the twitter this week with topics ranging from new websites to feet scraping to creepy childrens books and every thing in between.

The best of me (or not) on the twitter this week:

@CandySteele Me write code? I don’t even understand suduko. (in reply to CandySteele @katdish Your blogroll phones well. Tell me you’re not writing code. Please tell me.)

@lainiegallagher Do you realize that if you & I were morphed into 1 person we would be the most demanding person EVER? (in reply to lainiegallagher @katdish It’s decided, then. It should be fast by tomorrow. ๐Ÿ˜€ )

@lainiegallagher Well that’s true. (in reply to lainiegallagher @katdish Haha I know… me too! Make him fix it. I mean, your list of demands is already long. What’s one more?)

@JeffHolton Don’t mention it. Unsolicited advice: just another service I offer. (in reply to JeffHolton RT @katdish: @JeffHolton If they ask U what UR weaknesses R, don’t say, “I tend to oversleep & call in sick a lot after 90 days.” // Thx. ๐Ÿ™‚

SNORT! RT @br8kthru: Wow. It smells like boiled rotten cabbage in our office hallway… & not in a good way. ๐Ÿ™‚

@arestlessheart Snort! I’m going to unfollow myself now. (in reply to arestlessheart #FF MUST FOLLOW @katdish ๐Ÿ˜‰

When someone does a #FF in all caps that says MUST FOLLOWS, it makes me think “You’re not the boss of me!โ€

@Helenatrandom Hmmm…Now there’s a thought. My feet do need a good scrape and polish. (in reply to Helenatrandom @katdish Sounds to me like the ladies need a retreat as well… to a spa….)

@br8kthru I actually DO appreciate how men’s minds work. I consider it one of my greatest strengths. (in reply to br8kthru @katdish Nice! You have to appreciate how men’s minds work, right?)

@br8kthru DH is going on a “leadership retreat” w/Jeff & 2 other elders. To the beach. With the boat. And fishing poles.

There IS only one me, for which many are grateful//RT @CassandraFrear: @katdish There’s only one you. Shine.

I think it’s really funny that folks will go to such lengths to defend a creepy childrens book.

RT @marni71: @duane_scott @katdish Whatever dude. If my MIL broke into my house to rock my husband to sleep, I’d taze her.

@duane_scott guess one of us still holds a valid man card. (in reply to duane_scott @katdish true. But its also sweet. Did you lose your entire heart to Texas? The book still makes me choke up.)

@duane_scott It’s Creepy. (in reply to duane_scott @katdish @PeterPollock Love you Forever? The kids book? Don’t go hatin’ on that one. Its a childhood favorite.)

@PeterPollock I love you forever’s creepiness stems more from the artwork than from the wordage. (in reply to PeterPollock @CandySteele I’m not sure I understand the giving tree. Someon gave me it and said it reminded her of me? Never heard of Love you Forever)

@duane_scott @JeffHolton @CandySteele Possibly the best book ever written? Hmph! As Triumph the Dog would say, “For me to POOP on!โ€

@forthegirls Spending time with family, are we? (in reply to forthegirls My tongue is gonna have some serious teeth marks from biting it all day. Lord please let this day hurry)

I should probably go write something. My mind is a bit rambly.

Do you know what would be really mean thing to do? Let your dog lick a bowl clean & then put it back in the cabinet.

@buzzbyannies What to the eva, Annie (in reply to buzzbyannies @Katdish I had no idea there was such a thing as sugar free Ragu. Probably because I make my spaghetti sauce from scratch.)

Snort! Got a new fitness follow

As part of a new healthy eating regime, I had spaghetti made with Ragu-no sugar added. Which was really not bad once I added some sugar.

@RandDuren I must admit, he’s very good at playing David Caruso. (in reply to RandDuren @katdish I love him haha!)

@RandDuren You are crazy. Because David Caruso is so annoying. (in reply to RandDuren Call me crazy but I feel like watching CSI:Miami… I miss Horatio putting his glasses on.)

@CandySteele Is that a real word? (in reply to CandySteele @katdish @BridgetChumbley Or medical terms? Rectoretinitis is one of my favs.)

@CandySteele Whatever helps you sleep at night, Candy. (in reply to CandySteele @katdish See his left ear? When it’s bent, that means I’m on his mind. So there.)

@buzzbyannies Actually, my feet need a good scraping. You’re welcome. (in reply to buzzbyannies @Katdish Only if your toes look as fabulous as mine.)

@CandySteele Nah…he’s thinking how much he’d like to be sitting at my feet. (in reply to CandySteele Bozley couldn’t care less about @buzzbyannies new pedi. He’s really just dreaming of me. #puppyfix #NiceToesAnnie

@CassandraFrear Words to live by.

RT @CassandraFrear: @billycoffey OK. Now. Discovery Channel was not what I meant by being on to something. Maybe you shd listen to @katdish

@billycoffey Thought so. (in reply to billycoffey @katdish Well I’ll make an exception there, of course!)
@CassandraFrear I’m content, I just like to see what I’m missing. (in reply to CassandraFrear @billycoffey @katdish I love to travel. But “there is great gain in godliness with contentment”. (1 Tim 6) Billy’s on to something.)

@billycoffey Whatcha gonna do if Donnie Baseball invites you to a Yankees game? Decline because your mountains won’t let you? (in reply to billycoffey @katdish Isn’t that what the Discovery Channel is for?)

@billycoffey There’s a big old world out there Billy! VA is beautiful, but you need to see the Grand Canyon & other places. (in reply to billycoffey @katdish Oh hush! The mountains won’t let me.)

@billycoffey You never leave where you live now. (in reply to billycoffey @makeadiff21 WOW. If I lived there, I’d never leave.)

@lainiegallagher Oh, like you could do that. You’d miss me too much. (in reply to lainiegallagher @duane_scott I say we band together and boycott @katdish ‘s blog until it’s fixed!)

@KathleenOverby Because people are annoying, that’s why. (in reply to KathleenOverby why would a person bother to set up a ficticious blog/profile to comment japanese symbols into my comments? It’s not even spam. It’s numbers)

@chrissulli Why do you say that? Do you have any idea how many years he’s been writing? Almost as many as you’ve been alive. (in reply to chrissulli @katdish reading @billycoffey leaves me part in awe he is such a good writer and part discouraged)

@PeterPollock, Would you please put a (dot) between katdish and net on my website? @lainiegallagher is breaking out in hives.

@lainiegallagher SNORT! I KNEW you would notice that! (in reply to lainiegallagher @katdish The fact that you don’t have a [dot] does drive me nuts.)

@lainiegallagher I think you secretly do, but won’t admit it. I also think if I spelled my name wrong on that header it would drive you nuts (in reply to lainiegallagher @katdish Do I ever like anything?)

@lainiegallagher Of course. I didn’t think you would like it. (in reply to lainiegallagher @katdish I like it. Except for that pesky font…)

@CandySteele He works for the “You can tell an engineer, but you can’t tell them much” Railroad. (in reply to CandySteele @katdish I did not know that. What railroad?)

@buzzbyannies Huh…go figure. (in reply to buzzbyannies Just took an online personality test and the results are that I am sarcastic. Huh.)

@SBeeCreations You killed my father…prepare to die.

RT @SBeeCreations: @katdish You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

@Helenatrandom INCONCEIVABLE (in reply to Helenatrandom @katdish I l know how you feel. @duane_scott is the only one who tweeted me today. (TWSS) And that was after I’d been here an hour…)

Just so you know, I can see all you people talking amongst yourselves but not to me. Hmph!

@shrinkingcamel And you are one fine looking camel, Brad. (in reply to shrinkingcamel Being good-looking helps your career.

@CandySteele Yes. Feel free to live vicariously through me. (in reply to CandySteele @PeterPollock In case you didn’t know, @katdish does anything she wants to. That’s why we love her so.)

@PeterPollock Easy, I threatened my friends on #FOTTSP to either join my site or lose admin privileges. Power is good. (in reply to PeterPollock @katdish So let’s get this straight.. you haven’t even launched your new blog yet but you already have 13 ‘friends’ on it? how’d you do that?)

@CandySteele I picked out the font, he loaded it for me & changed it 562 times until I liked it. I’m a pleasure to work with. (in reply to CandySteele @katdish Did he do the fancy schmancy header too? Or did you do that? #randomfontarrhea #cool)

I’m really not hard to please, I only expect perfection.

@SurfCorp I think twitter should pay me. (in reply to SurfCorp If you had to pay for Twitter what would it be worth to you every month?)

@noveldoctor You are really ARE Eeyore. (in reply to noveldoctor God hit the reset button on Twitter to remind us we’re all made of the same stuff…low self-esteem.)

RT @unmarketing: I need a Facebook enema, too much crap in my stream.

@PeterPollock Yes. You are correct. We are all rich oil barons. (in reply to PeterPollock My understanding from TV is that all Texans are rich oil barons. Is that correct?)

I really need to narrow down my categories list for my new site. I think I can eliminate “My big fat head” & “oreo cakesters”

I love me some twitpics

I was debating whether or not to do a twitter post this week. Note to self, when debating whether or not to do a twitter post, settle the debate before 10 pm, otherwise, you’ll be up way past your bedtime…

And now the best of me (or not) on the twitter:

@pagan43 Peptoflingo? Nice… (in reply to pagan43 @katdish – ” IT ” finished all 3 bowlsful and still has room to eat those leaves ? Peptoflingo.)

@TchrEric It better not be anyone from Georgia! (in reply to TchrEric @katdish Maybe someone will buy it for you for Christmas, you know, anonymously,because they love you, -could be anyone, everyone loves Kat!)

@TchrEric Yeah…like that’s gonna happen. (in reply to TchrEric @katdish Send the pic of it when it is in your house/yard! ๐Ÿ™‚

Okay people. Gotta go face my arch nemesis – the grocery store.

RT @noveldoctor: Ben and Jerry’s to introduce new writer-themed sorbet: Literary Agent Orange – “It tastes like rejection!”

And by “adult fiction novels” I realize I was being redundant. Sorry, my bad.

@PeterPollock And FYI, my daughter has read your MS about 5 times. She loves it.

I’ve read two of the best adult fiction novels I’ve ever read this year, & neither one is published yet.

@PeterPollock Let me rephrase that… (in reply to PeterPollock @katdish I don’t get it… ‘cos you read my book LAST year, not this year ?)

I’ve read 2 of the best books I’ve ever read this year, & neither one is published yet.

@M1ke6 – If you’re only going to talk to me via DM, I’m not giving you the potato salad recipe.

@jamieworley Aw, Jamie…It’s a good thing we’re not neighbors. Snort! (in reply to jamieworley Gullible people like me should not be allowed out of the house or online on April Fools Day.)

Ooo! My mom is bringing her famous potato salad on Sunday! Nom, nom!

Esp. if followed by “anymore” RT @curtharding: You know it’s a bad day when your lawyer tells the press that you’re not a Nazi

@noveldoctor Yeah, but I wonder what the resale value is. ( in reply to noveldoctor @katdish Then here’s some good news: You don’t have to report empty longing and unredeemable angst to the IRS!)

@Goannatree I have celebrity ducks and bunnies commenting on my blog. It’s all very sordid.

@noveldoctor Hey, wait a minute…by that description, I think I already am one. (in reply to noveldoctor @katdish I pay my favorite muse with empty longing and unredeemable angst. She loves it. You should probably ask for cash, though.)

@VariantVal I do a pretty good Stevie Nicks impersonation. Saw her twirl right off the stage once. I was like, “Where’d she go?”

@noveldoctor I should branch out and be a rent-a-muse. (in reply to noveldoctor @katdish I don’t know. Maybe tomorrow? My personal muse is missing, but I can always rent one for a day.)

Oh, Sweet Fancy Moses! Due to ever increasing threatening comments on my blog by @bunbuntherabbit et al, I will post a rematch on Tues.

@melissa_rae Yah! August is commonly known as “Dishmas” around here. More specifically, “katdishmas”.

RT @noveldoctor: Vampire novels: out. Umpire novels: in. “Harry Wendelstedt and the Foul Tip of Death” a sure bestseller

Integrity is not found in the limelight, it is where it is tested.

@marni71 That might entail me having to take notes. Not so sure about that. (in reply to marni71 @katdish My association paid to send me. Maybe your church could send you??)

@monicasharman Ah yes. The bling of choice for all the white upper middle class mall gangstas in my hood. (in reply to monicasharman @katdish The first thing I noticed was the C3PO near the bottom left.)


Okay! Who loves this book? Because I wanna know how many I’ll offend when I write a new version.

@WriteOnRideOn You know, @billycoffey loves Jesus more than he does the #Yankees, but it’s pretty close… (in reply to WriteOnRideOn @katdish Okay…THAT made me actually bust out LOL. Still Laughing. Out Loud.)

@WriteOnRideOn Okay…What if I tape it and watch it Monday? Is that okay? (in reply to WriteOnRideOn I realize few if any will publicly agree w/me about @MLB #scheduleFAIL Opening Day on EASTER Sunday. It’s what I believe. Strongly believe.)

@WriteOnRideOn Not that I’ll be watching (ahem), but who’s playing? ( in reply to WriteOnRideOn Speaking of getting fired up~WHAT the heck is up w/ @MLB choosing EASTER Sunday for opening day?!! #MAJORLEAGUEFAIL)

As always, sorry/you’re welcome!

A very blessed and Happy Easter to you all!
