XBOX = AWESOMEBOX

So I’ve seen a few commercials for the “Kinect” for Xbox. It seems pretty cool, they state “you are the controller”. Apparently you can even say verbal commands such as “XBOX PLAY” and it will play whatever movie that may be in the system.

Even though I think the concept in this is kinda neat, I do have 5 command suggestions that would make the “Kinect” even awesomer…

1. “XBOX PAY THE BILLS” – So you just shelled out some nice change for your new XBOX KINECT… wouldn’t it be sweet if it paid itself? Now that’s what I call a “sound investment”.

2. “XBOX CHANGE THE BABY” – Okay, so you can verbally control a DVD, big deal. What about the mound of poop just lingering in your baby’s diaper? Now that is a command we would love to give to the XBOX… “XBOX CHANGE THE BABY”, “XBOX SPRAY SOME FEBREEZ”, yea, that’s what I’m talking about.

3. “XBOX GO TO WORK” – SO what’s the point of having a cool game system like the XBOX if you don’t have anytime to play with it? If we could simply command the thing to take our place at work, we would have more time to spend playing Black OPS and saving the world one dead zombie at a time… wait, aren’t zombies already dead?

4. “XBOX CLEAN THE DISHES” – Hey, since we are on the lines of the thing doing our job for us, it might as well do some stuff around the house as well. “XBOX MAKE MY BED”, “XBOX WALK THE DOG”, “XBOX TAKE OUT THE TRASH”, “XBOX ROTATE THE CAR TIRES”, etc…

5. “XBOX MAKE ME A SANDWICH” – So really, how cool would this thing be if it would make you a P&J on command? I mean, yea, I guess that is why God created “women”, but I’m sure they wouldn’t mind a break every once in awhile, you know what I’m saying?

How would you make the XBOX KINECT even awesomer?

REAL LIFE SUPERHEROES

I have always been fascinated by Superheroes, from Spiderman to Batman with Superman being my favorite of course. I like the idea of one person making a difference, standing up for what is right even when others would not.

So when I came across this article about “Real Life Superheroes” on msn.com the other day, I thought it was kind of cool to see real people wearing masks and capes and doing “superhero” things within their community.

Granted these tasks are not necessary leaping over tall buildings and going faster than a speeding bullet, but they are going out and helping the homeless and even fighting various types of crime. There is even a community of Real Life Superheroes found at reallifesuperheroes.com.

So this made me think that if I was a Superhero, what would I wear? What would my Superhero name be? And do we really need a mask and cape to be a Superhero?

If you could be a Superhero, what would your name be?

TO OUR FUTURE DAUGHTER

Dear Mrs. [R]uebin Switzer,

I’m writing you this letter to let you know how much you are loved. We have been praying for you ever since the day [R]uebin was born.

We have no idea what your name is, and there is a good chance that we haven’t even met you yet. However, we pray for you each day. We are praying that you will be protected from the things of this world. We are praying that your parents will raise you to honor God. We are praying that you will preserve yourself for our son. We are praying that you will grow into the virtuous women that God wants you to be.

We are also praying that [R]uebin walks in the path of Christ. That he will be the husband that you deserve. We are praying that we raise him to treat you with respect, and cherish you more than any other woman in the world. We are praying that he becomes the leader that he is suppose to be. We are praying that he is the Godly father that your children will so desperately need.

And though you most likely won’t see this letter for at least 20 years from now, we want you to know that God has something special for you both and we are praying that He uses you both for great things! We love you both. We love you…

Sincerely,
Seth & Pam (Your future Father & Mother in Law)

p.s
It’s not required, but if you were
a Yankee fan, that would be a great plus…

GOING CO[R]PORATE

Pam and I have been praying about the next steps for The [R] Project. We have decided that it’s time to go corporate… that’s right, we are starting the process of becoming an official non profit organization.

We believe that God is ready for The [R] Project to do bigger things.

Please pray that we can find a good attorney, accountant, and the funds needed to go through this process.

There’s more to come, and there’s more to share about the future of The [R] Project, but that’s going to wait for now…

The [R]evolution of Hope continues…

I BET I’M LESS COMPETITIVE THAN YOU ARE

Okay, so I have a problem.

I’m not quite as perfect as some would think I am.

I know… shocking to say the least.

But, here’s the deal… I’m overly competitive.

Now Biblically, good competition is encouraged. “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it.” – 1 Corinthians 9:24.

But, healthy competition also requires good sportsmanship, attitude, and not yelling at your 3 year old nephew when he schools you at Mario Kart. (he cheated, I swear…)

Healthy competition also requires one not to get upset at his dad on the Volleyball court, and excuse his sister of not “shuffling” her cards properly.

So yes, I have a problem.

My name is Seth, and I’m overly competitive.
