Heaven is going to be a busy place...

Excluding my own personal beliefs about heaven and all that end of the world stuff, I noticed something today that I think is funny.

It seems common in the discussion of 'heaven and what one will do there' people express the desire to hang out with the biblical greats.

for example:

fish with Peter
Dance with David (theoretically naked... o dear)
wrestle with Jacob
and just spend time with these people

It comes out in the personal statements people make about their heaven...

But lets think about it...

Under this thought process David would be pretty busy. Taking into account his personal family, his contemporaries and every person who read the bible since then... That makes his dance card pretty full. It means David will probably be dancing for most of eternity...

I don't know about you but that sounds crazy.

While a reference to 493's game of the year, age also refers to the length of time which you have lived on the earth. Currently it also titles a funny story.

I went to the new pornographers concert on sunday and of course I was carded and asked my age. I brilliantly responded 22 and was abruptly let into the show. YES!

But had it been two days earlier I would have had a bit of a challenge. You see I was talking to a new friend of mine online and they asked me my age. I brilliantly responded 21. As shocking as it was I failed to remember my age. It was also quite embarassing to have to explain exactly how I was born in April 1985 which means I'm 22.

So the moral of the story is 'Pat is an idiot' but in a good way.

Patman the idiot.

The New Pornographers.

I figured in this instance a clever name would be slightly confusing. Frankly just having the word "pornographers" in my title is intrigue enough to those who have no clue to what I am refering.

Let me explain...

The New Pornographers are a band. As far as I know their name has no real meaning just sounds cool. They play some form of 'Rock' but since I rarely move beyond that in musical genres we'll keep it simple with "rock." And frankly they really do rock!

Last night I went to their concert at "The Phoenix" downtown Toronto. It was great. I have been following the band for a little less than a year and I am quite familiar with their songs so I was able to dig the vibe of the hip atmosphere.

Shout out to Chris Clements and Nyssa Dhilon for letting me come along with them.

Check out the group. They are pretty good.
So says Patman the Pat

I have the Keys

So I bought a keyboard.

(at this point my mother gets really angry)

But it was cheap.

(she's still angry but understands)

Under $50...

We can thank kipling church.

You think you had a good weekend....

well I slept on a boat.

Thats right. Dan got married this weekend. But more importantly I slept on a boat.

"Just for fun" was its name. (It could very well be 'just 4 fun' which could be more fun but I didn't bother asking semantics) Yes I became captain of this boat for a brief moment between the hours of 9:00pm and 9:00 am. I had a proud first mate Disco Stu. It was great.

Slept well too.

Congratulations Dan... but more importantly congratulations me...

Captain Patman the Pat
