Girls Write Out
Saturday, March 10, 2007
No one's around. I'm bored. Lucky you, I'm going to rant for a bit. (May you have something better to do with your day!)

First rant: On weekdays, people who come in for coffee beans during the morning rush should really be shot. Can you not stop in AFTER work people? You screw up the line and your sense of entitlement is pathetic. Everyone knows the people who need their caffeine fix have precedence in the a.m. Um, DUH!!

Taxes: There has got to be a way to slow the flow of taxes based on housing prices in the Bay Area. Yeah, a lot of politicians are going to get on that bandwagon, ha! The mayor of SF is wanting to make all bus rides free. You know what "free" means, people? It means YOU pay for people who can't. That's called communism and I love this, on the radio it said the SF buses would turn into rolling dumpsters on wheels. LOL

Colleen is in Hawaii, but may I just say it's 70 degrees here and GORGEOUS and today my taxes are paying for the Lunar Unity Parade, so I better get out there! : )

Okay, I'll rant, too.

I was reading a really cute Christian chick-lit in the bookstore today and it offered the escapism that I needed. Somewhere between 75 and 100 pages, though, the character was all excited about this guy that she met because he had accepted Christ at one point and they both said, "Once saved, always saved," at the same time. I should have kept reading to see if the character ever finally decided to read Hebrews, but I just got disgusted and left.

I really, REALLY hope that the author doesn't truly believe that.

This is off Kristin's rant, but in regards to Kayla...that is exactly why most publishers don't allow their authors to write anything with a specific denominations doctrinal belief system. Those types of tidbits may turn off some people. As writers we need to be careful with these kinds of things.

Having said that...I'm Baptist and would probably have enjoyed the book. ;)(And yes, I've read Hebrews) LOL.

First Denise, then Colleen back in Hawaii. Can we have a GWO drawing to win a free trip to Hawaii?

:) Rachel

Sabrina, it WAS a good book...I'll probably go back and finish it at some point. It just thudded me out of my dream world and back into the bookstore, and the magic was lost and I realized I had to go home and clean. LOL.

At 9:40 PM, Blogger Colleen Coble said...

Um, Kayla, I believe that myself. In fact, it's a topic I'm passionate about. Eternal life means just that. When we are saved, God knows what sins we'll commit before we ever accept them. We are changed permanently, we can't be UNBORN. I grew up in a church that didn't believe in eternal security and it does a lot of damage because when a new Christian would fail, they would just give up, which is exactly what Satan wanted.

So I would have enjoyed the book. LOL Like I said, it's a subject I'm VERY passionate about.

At 10:11 PM, Blogger Kayla said...

Ack, I really didn't mean to start this. Sorry! If I could delete my comment, I would. It's something I feel passionate about, too.

At 10:16 PM, Blogger Colleen Coble said...

LOL, Kayla! Healthy debate is a good thing. We can disagree about a topic and love each other anyway! LOL

At 11:27 PM, Blogger Anna Marie said...

Hey Kayla,
I know you don't wanna talk about this any more,But I'm with you on this one. ;)

At 11:39 PM, Blogger Kristin said...

Hey, y'all are taking my rant and turning into a theological discussion! What the heck??? LOL Honestly, that kind of stuff doesn't really interest me. Today in SF they're having a big Christian event and there are a whole bunch of progressive (SF talk for liberals) screaming at them about their closed mindedness and lack of tolerance. Okay, I know they're way too close to see the irony in that, but whatever.

At 11:54 PM, Blogger Sabrina L. Fox said...

I'm with Rachel...lets have a drawing. ;) Or better yet, we could book a whole floor of rooms and have a GWO conference in Hawaii. Hmmm. Now how are we going to convince our husbands?

And sorry, Kristin...feel free to rant some more. We'll listen this time. =)

Last time I was bored was 1985...I was in high school in study hall and I vowed never to be bored again...

At 5:54 AM, Blogger Pam S. said...

What is a lunar unity parade--and why is the city paying for it? (Honest questions. I don't know the answers.)

At 9:56 AM, Blogger Malia Spencer said...

Hmm, GWO or ACFW conference? Either way it works for me because I love hanging out with other writers. Just don't forget to do it on O'ahu, if only for the shopping. :)

Colleen, I miss you guys!

At 10:04 AM, Blogger Robin Caroll said...

LOL, Kris. Can't even keep ranters on topic, can you? LOL

Yeah, Colleen in Hawaii and I'm at a board meeting....what's wrong with this picture????

At 3:38 PM, Blogger Kristin said...

I wonder if I would have less need to rant in Hawaii. I'm thinking, YES!!! I need a vacation.

At 3:48 PM, Blogger mazzucasinswaziland said...

First time blog reader and commenter here (but Kristin, I love your books!) I just have to say as a former Seattle resident (we're missionaries in Swaziland now) I've been that person holding up the line buying the beans. Usually, it is because I can't justify spending that much on a cup twice a day. Can we say that if they are buying beans AND a cup, we will let them slide?

At 5:01 PM, Blogger Kristin said...

Oh sure, tell me I offended a missionary in my rant. ROFLOL I just can't win on my rants, can I? Okay, you're a former Seattle resident, so you brought coffee to the free world, I must repent. Do you think that's why God has me in Silicon Valley so I can justify buying two expensive cups a day? OOOh now I feel even worse. Well, welcome from Swaziland. Come to California and I'll buy you cups every day you're here! Kristin Twice a day!~

At 1:31 AM, Blogger mazzucasinswaziland said...

Two a cups a day? That would be HUGE for me, seeing as to how there isn't a Starbucks on the whole continent and everybody here drinks instant (I mean, seriously, that isn't even really coffee!) But if all of your kids are potty trianed and you aren't dishing out the big bucks for diapers like I am, then I think it is okay to have two a day. You've earned it!

At 11:45 AM, Blogger Tina said...

I'd love to be with you in Swaziland, Hawaii, or SF. Calgon, take me away today.

In Wyo, people are fighting about the problems caused by getting rid of taxes on groceries. When I lived in Sacramento, I loved not paying taxes on groceries. I love it now. What's the problem? LOL.

Back to my book...

At 7:40 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Coffee - ICK lol. I guess I can't rant about it and taxes are boring, so no rant there either. Hmmmm...

I've got it - why does sugar have to give me a headache? I love chocolate, cake, etc., but alas, too much and I get a doozy of a headache like today.

Rant over lol.

At 1:13 AM, Blogger Kristin said...

Ooh you lucky girl to have a headache from sugar! Then you can't eat it and get fat and get diabetes and all the other stuff that comes with the addiction of sugar!! I'm jealous. I really am. I only get headaches from Beef Jerky. LOL

At 6:24 AM, Blogger mazzucasinswaziland said...

Can I rant a little more about coffee? What's up with those people who spend $6 to get a venti quad shot sugar-free fat-free no foam no whip raspberry DECAF white chocolate mocha? I mean, come on! The Lord created the coffee bean laden with caffeine for a reason! You might as well spend a $1.50 on a bottle of Ethos water and pour some Spelnda in it. That way, you still get your artificial sugar water and some of the proceeds will go to helping people who don't have clean water.
