Hare-Brained Scheme #427

As the day comes to a close, merry christmas to all. Mine was pretty decent, even after all three female members of my family, in rapid succession, tried to wake me up...way too early. Love you guys, but please, please...don't do that again.

Tomorrow, much of the world returns to work, while i have another week's vacation. Alongside continued R&R, a few plans are on tap:

Investigate the fruits of a partnership between Wendy's and AirTran. Here's the deal. Buy 32 sodas at Wendy's before year's end, redeem for a one-way plane ticket. 64 sodas equates to a round-trip ticket.
If this could be LA to Atlanta, we've come upon something...

Is soda to Mike Work as pudding was to Barry Egan? We shall see...

Spend time with family, and connect with what friends/contacts i have in Atlanta. I grew up here, but haven't really lived in the area since high school; much has transpired, & LA is much more my home than ATL at this point...

Reading for the week will include Families at the Crossroads, Interpreting God and the Postmodern Self, A Spacious Heart, and finally finishing a first read of Exclusion and Embrace. I aim to put related thoughts and reviews on the blog, as well as relevant insights from other works recently read, specifically Alan Mann's volume on atonement and shame.

Put to paper my end-of-year reflections, which may make their way here.

Look into going over to WordPress, which may lead me to leave blogger.

Keep your eyes peeled.

    How can that be real? I am going to start buying drinks tomorrow.

    So, did you buy all the drinks to get over here?

    update on the soda front:

    so i did go through with it, and bought the drinks for one round-trip ticket, to be used this summer, either LA to Atlanta & back for me, or vice versa for a family member, likely my mom.

    Net cost: about $60.
