    We do what we do as missionaries supported by people like you.

    We also prefer to give away as much content as we can, and not cloud that issue with a lot of public requests. That said, we do have specific needs that are met by people who believe the work we do has value.

    If you'd like a short list of immediate financial needs, you can find it HERE.

    Thanks!

Childhood decisions can chart your course in life.

I am working with someone on a major project right now…without making it too clear, let me say they are in their twenties and a highly professional type…fun, but completely capable of running the world without breaking a sweat.

Recently, her corporate email server went down for a short period of time and she had to give me her personal email address. I won’t give the address here in full, but be aware that it contained the words “Bratty” and “Pants”. Her explanation was “I’ve had it since I was 13 and couldn’t bring myself to change it….”.

I see.

Childhood decisions can chart your course in life. Choose wisely.

EDIT: Bratty Pants herself later confessed to me that she’s not quite in her twenties. I can’t tell you her age, but it rhymes with QWERTY. What can I say. I’m too smart to guess high. Always guess low.

  1. After that blog I am naming you bratty pants.

    High Point Though.

    Great conversation starter and often takes friendships to the next level.

  2. Ah! The days of creative, cryptic emails.

    Lets just say a certain someone I might be marrying in August had an email with “level the devil” in it. 🙂

  3. HAHAHAHA…

    It makes me better knowing my childhood name is duckwater.

    LOL

  4. That’s awesome. I remember when I outgrew my e-mail address I got when I was thirteen… but I couldn’t bear not to part with it.

    Let’s just say using a baby nickname as the basis of the address was a never a good idea to begin with, and it took me until I was about sixteen to figure that out.

  5. I am so old that my original address was jjrx76c@prodigy.net.

    Rolls right off the tongue, doesn’t it?

  6. Email at 13???? Boy do I feel OLD. I was still trying to figure out the Commodore 64 at age 13.

  7. Feel young, Kelsey… at 13 I was cleaning toilets and floors at the local Good Sam nursing home for $1.50/hour with not a thought that there would be a machine called a computer, let alone that I would be on one all the time in my later years!! Heck, we had just got black & white TV!! We thought that was pretty neat, but could only watch 1/2 hour a day. In saying that, there wasn’t any shows to watch after 10pm. Oh, one more thing… I walked 10 miles to school in the snow. 🙂
