As you may or may not have noticed, posting has been sporadic the last week or so. Blogging has turned into a chore more than something fun to do. I'm burned out.

Therefore, I am taking an extended break from blogging. During this time I will see if the desire to continue returns, changes to something else, or stays gone.

Thanks to all who visit me regularly, I will update the Roost in a week with what I've decided.

God bless, and play nice!

Halo - The Future of Gaming

You'd think this is a possibility with all the Halo3 tie-ins.

Have you ever played Halo? Will you?

I haven't. I'm not much for first-person-shooters. Especially player-vs-player ones. I just suck. Still, Halo3 looks to be graphically beautiful, and there is something a bit cathartic about blowing away digital enemies. I'm just not going to drop $350 on an Xbox 360 then another $50 or more just for a single game.

People are doing it, though.

Golden Shower Tree

Golden Shower Tree Plaque at Busch Gardens Tampa
This was taken at Busch Gardens Tampa. The descriptive plaque would lead you to beleive the tree's name is taken from the golden flowers which bloom in Spring.

They lie.

The tree is filled with incontinent howler monkeys and is a trap for unwary park visitors.

Took me twelve trips on the water rides to get the smell out. =/

"God" Responds to Lawsuit

Image Swiped from / Click to Go VisitYesterday I told you about State Sen. Ernie Chambers of Omaha filing a lawsuit against God.

Today, God responded.

John Friend, clerk of the Douglas County District Court in Omaha stated a filing from God "... miraculously appeared on the counter. It just all of a sudden was here - poof!"

"God" claims that Chambers' point that anybody can sue anybody simply doesn't apply in His case. Earthly laws cannot be applied to Him, and the court lacks jurisdiction. "God" goes on to state that blaming Him for human oppression ans suffering misses the point.

"I created man and woman with free will and next to the promise of immortal life, free will is My greatest gift to you," according to the response filing.

I wonder if the Almighty will pull in the Devil as a material witness? Or, would he be too much a hostile witness?

Nebraska State Senator Sues God

Image swiped from Associated Press / Sen. Ernie Chambers of OmahaSen. Ernie Chambers of Omaha is suing God.

The outspoken Nebraska state senator is attempting to make a point about frivolous lawsuits. And this one is about as frivolous as they get.

Chambers' suit claims God has made terroristic threats against constituents, inspired fear, and "widespread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants." The state senator also claims God has caused "fearsome floods ... horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornadoes."

Even though Chambers has criticized Christians in the past, his lawsuit is not really an attack on the Almighty. Rather, it is in response to a recent federal suit against a judge who barred the use of the words "rape" and "victim" from a sexual assault trial.

I'm wondering if God will have to swear an oath on the Bible?

And, does anyone else think the fan in the background of the picture of Sen. Chambers sorta look like a halo effect?

Go to Seattle, Ride the SLUT

This is one of the funniest WTF stories I've seen in a while.

Photo ripped off from

The South Lake Union Trolley in Seattle has the unfortunate nickname. It was quickly amended to South Lake Union Streetcar once the unfortunate acronym was realized, but the damage has been done. You can read more about it here.

What makes it even more hilarious, to me, is the trolleys are being installed by area developers Vulcan, Inc. (Who claim the SLUT acronym was never true, a new urban myth).

So, technically, Seattle will soon have numerous Vulcan SLUTs running about!

Not Tonight, Dear, I Have a Headache

No blog today. Near migraine level headache. Too much pain to even look for fart jokes.

See you tomorrow.
