Random and Odd


There are only TWO things I have ever prayed for that wasn’t something that was NEEDED.  You know, like…let my mother live until I get there, watch over so-and-so as they go through surgery…stuff that’s ‘needed’.

These two things…these two tiny self indulgent requests  I have prayed for have been over looked by UPPERCASE GOD for decades.  I didn’t want to believe he wasn’t listening, because HELLO…how many nights can I lay there praying for them and he not hear me?


Oh, I guess you need to know what those two prayers were, right?

1. They cast Philip Seymour Hoffman as Ignatius J. Riley in the movie based on the book “A Confederacy of Dunces”

This request has fallen on deaf ears.  I am just happy that Will Ferrell will NOT be doing it.  Baby steps, Hollywood. Baby steps.

2. They make a sequel to My Favorite Movie That Has Ever Been Made.

Thank you. I was looking for a reason to live…and it has been handed to me on a silver platter.

“See, Kristine…life does get better.  Sure, you’re broke, depressed, out of medication, your tooth is chipped and causing shooting pain through your jaw and the car is being held together with dried soda syrup and French fry dust…BUT THERE WILL BE MORE CHRIS KNIGHT!”

We can all rest well now.

I'm a lot of things, but mostly I'm just Random and Odd.
