Tonight on Countdown, Keith Olbermann took Bill O’Reilly to task about some nasty words he said about NBC. Some of the better quotes:
Regarding cheap shots…
You know… I gotta confess that it never occurred to me; but when we quote your own words back to you about how the Catholic Church was out to get Christmas, or how we should let Al Qaeda bomb San Francisco… they must seem like cheap shots.
Regarding Robert Wright (president of NBC) being aware of said “cheap shots”
And let us leave our bosses out of this Bill, or I’ll have to call yours; and we all know how much Satan hates to be disturbed while “American Idol” is on.
There were others but these were the good ones that I caught.

Here is the game for this year.Â Since I’m under doctor’s orders to drink enough water to drown myself, I could theoretically play.Â However, I’m already dealing with nausea and vomiting so I think I’ll skip the speech.

As some of you know, my husband Jon is into foxes.Â We were driving between two of the churches today and saw one playing in the fields.Â This was just really cool for Jon.
On the way back, the following conversation took place:
Jen: *scans the fields* I wonder where Herr Fuchs went.
Jon: He’s probably back in the hills now in his fox den, sitting on his fox davenport, drinking a beer, and watching football.
Jen: Jon, there’s no football until next week.
Jon: It’s probably a college game.Â And he’s probably eating chicken or pheasant or whatever he’s been able to catch.Â Then his vixen will come in and tell him to take out the garbage.Â His response: “Honey, we’re foxes.Â We eat garbage.”
I’m not sure what is scarier: the fact that we had this conversation or the fact that I can quote it verbatim.Â I’m thinking the fox went to get himself a lattÃ©.
I must be really in need of something to do if I’m listening to this and watching this.Â (That last one is PG-rated at least, so please don’t show it to your 3 year olds.)
A friend of my sister-in-law’s was killed by a drunk driver a couple days ago and my s-i-l asked if all Lutherans could sing “Children of the Heavenly Father” in her memory.Â So…
Children of the heavâ€™nly Father
Safely in His bosom gather;
Nestling bird nor star in Heaven
Such a refuge eâ€™er was given.
God His own doth tend and nourish;
In His holy courts they flourish;
From all evil things He spares them;
In His mighty arms He bears them.
Neither life nor death shall ever
From the Lord His children sever;
Unto them His grace He showeth,
And their sorrows all He knoweth.
Though He giveth or He taketh,
God His children neâ€™er forsaketh;
His the loving purpose solely
To preserve them pure and holy.

I have a second interview with the bank tomorrow.Â My life will go fine on if I don’t get this job; but we could use the income and I’d really like to be working again so… please pray for confidence for me as I go in tomorrow morning.
