Life's Creed #1

My wife has an assignment to create a creed for one of her education classes on what she believes about the classroom. This got my mind going down its many paths, and one of those paths was that it would be a good idea to put a personal creed up here on Rememorandom. So, ladies and gentlemen, I give you the first part of my life's creed.

I believe that Creed was really a craptastic band with few good songs, except for maybe "My Own Prison" and "Bullets."

I believe that I shouldn't have slept with the windows up last night, as now my nasal cavities and eyes have rebelled against their normal complacent disposition, instead vying for an unsteady life of dry and itchy and then suddenly runny and leaky.

I believe that I should put this bill in the mail today or risk the wrath of a late charge.

I believe that the cookies I made over the weekend, from scratch, were possibly the best cookies that have ever been made, and that you should go here and get the recipe and make them for yourselves.

I believe that my wife is one of the best cooks this world has to offer, especially after the feasts from yesterday.

I believe in the Bible and that it is God's Word, holy and true, and that we should live our lives by its principles.

I believe that Jesus was God and Man and that He died and rose again so that we could all have eternal life-- escaping the clutches of Hell, the agony of the torment, and the despair of being in the wrath of God--and that salvation comes truly and simply by confessing Christ as Lord.

I believe that many Christians of times past and now live lives that are ruthless and harsh, and that Christianity suffers from misconceptions.

I believe that we should love and respect everybody, everywhere, everyday and all the time, no matter how different they are.

I believe that bananas may be internally evil.

I believe that reading is one of the greatest pleasures in life.

I believe in being optimistic, always looking for the bright side in things, no matter how dark and uncertain they seem.

I believe in being tactful, always considering your words carefully before letting them spill out of your mouth.

I believe in bluegrass and folk music, man.

I believe in calculus and physics, art and music, science and faith and education all around.

I believe that Lost is going to have a killer final season, and that Heroes better do something or I'll quit watching it.

I believe that Arrested Development was the funniest television show ever created, followed by Malcolm in the Middle and Seinfield.

I believe in manipulating the rules of grammar for my own purposes and that it's okay to end a sentence with a preposition.

I believe in Kelsey Grammer.

I believe my addiction to crossword puzzles could potentially get way out of hand, as I now attempt three different puzzles nearly daily.

That's it for now, folks. Just a little window into my world. Sure, they're all my own personal beliefs, and I'm not in any way trying to force them upon you, but you really should watch Arrested Development if you've not ever seen it. You won't regret it. And if you do, then you're just lying to yourself.

Why are bananas evil? LOL! I love'em! Oh, the wonderful goodness of Banana pudding!

Ditto about reading! My favorite pass time!

I agree Heroes is losing its potential!

Cool post! All the best!

I believe mayonnaise is infinitely more evil than bananas...

Good post. It's always fun to assemble such a list. Thanks for posting.

Heroes tanked on the season one finale and hasn't recouped yet, I think... most of season one was so awesome...

As for LOST, I finally bailed on that show a couple episodes into season 5. How sad...

Bananas have only one thing going for them, and that's that it's spelled in such a way that no matter how many 'ana' you add to it, you always get a bananananananananana. Almost like the theme song to Batman...

Dave, you were so close to the end, too. Season 5 was amazing, especially once it started going.
