Episode 13Had a pretty good birthday yesterday. Thanks all of you who sent birthday greetings. I treated myself to lunch at Mimi's Cafe, where they give you a complimentary muffin with any salad order. Yum. Then it was off to the dog park in Round Rock with my puppy. We normally do this every week, but we skipped last week cuz I had a cold. When we don't go every week, his little paw pads soften up - and so when he gets to the dog park and runs around like a lunatic, he gets blisters. Poor puppy!
My partner (I say 'partner' instead of 'wife' because I think 'wife' is condescending and sexist) took me to dinner at Texas Roadhouse, where they were kind enough to serve us quickly so we could hurry off to our movie on time. The movie was 'Angels & Demons', which I have to say was a major disappointment. And not just because the Vatican fails to get blown up by an anti-matter bomb. No, seriously, it was simply nowhere near interesting or well-made as DaVinci Code.
I'll be on The Atheist Experience tomorrow, with Matt Dillahunty. Last week Russell Glasser and Matt Wagner were on. Near the end of the show, they had a caller who said, "I know this won't mean anything to you, but I just want to tell you that God loves you." To which Russell replied, "We know it means something to you, so thank you." Wrong answer, in my opinion. The guy said he'd call back; if he does, I'll be happy to give what I think is the appropriate response.
