Will we have breakfast in heaven?

If you are a fan of the Newsboys or Audio Adrenaline, go to another page - NOW! I'm about to say things you may not like. In fact, go to and learn about new bands...

I just have to say that those two bands DRIVE ME CRAZY! They were hot in, what, 1994? The problem with Christian radio is that they're still playing their same old tired songs from a decade ago like they were the newest hits of today. It makes me cringe. This is why I don't listen to Christian radio!

While Matt was in the shower this morning, he had the radio on Air1 and the stupid breakfast song came on. If you don't know it, I'll give you a lyrical snack:


What...the...HECK is that supposed to mean????? How do they know that? Maybe there will be breakfast in hell, but it will be soft boiled eggs and lumpy grits? What if they don't serve breakfast in heaven? Will the Newsboys show up at the pearly gates, find out that there's no breakfast and then turn away? It's just retarded. Who writes a song about that? I mean, if you're going to write a silly song, do it right and say things like "Light up the stage and wax a chump like a candle". Matt just walked out of the bathroom saying, "What kind of crappy evangelism is that? 'Oh, well, you know, they don't have breakfast in hell, so you'd better straighten up and get right with God so you can have your Apple Jacks after you die.'" for me.

AND - did you know that Audio Adrenaline still charges somewhere around $35,000 to play at a concert??? WHAT????? Have they even made that much in record sales in the past 5 years?? Every year in our town, we have a big Christian music festival called Ichthus (you may have heard of it or been one of the 20,000 people who were here). Every year, Ichthus keeps raising their ticket prices just so they can keep bringing back tired, expensive bands like Audio Adrenaline. COME ON!!! There is so much more going on in Christian music right now. Oh, and this year they had Michael W. Smith and Selah play on the last night of the festival. Are you serious? I like them both, quite a bit actually, but at a rock festival??? They are not festival bands at all...and I wonder how much Ichthus paid for them...

All of this to say, if you want great Christian music, you're going to have to go out and find it for yourself. Those radio stations aren't doing it for you. Check out or

Sorry if that offended anyone. I just get a little worked up when it comes to this stuff. Matt will probably laugh when he reads this.

Now - can I just say that I'm a little ashamed to be a Hoosier fan today? They got beat by Indiana State last night.'s even more painful to see that in writing. Anyway, I don't know much about sports, so I can't really tell you much about it except that it hurts. I'm hurt.

Okie dokie - off to the bathroom to get ready for work. Lots of students to get admitted!!!

Peace, Katie

I don't think we're in Kansas anymore...

I know Kentucky is just a border away from Indiana, but it feels like a completely different country!

Apparently in Kentucky you have to apply for a license to hunt elk. I didn't even know there were elk in Kentucky, but whatever. So, out of 40 some thousand applicants, 10 (not 10,000 - ten) were chosen to be elk hunters this fall. Well, zip-a-dee-doo-dah, our landlord was one of them.

Matt came home from work Saturday afternoon with a crazy look on his face. "Do you know what's going on outside?" I had no clue. Then he proceeded to tell me that there was, at that very moment, a skinned, hoofless elk hanging from a tree in our front yard. What a trophy! I was immediately grossed out and mortified. "Maybe no one will drive by..." I thought. Much to my dismay, we got a call 15 minutes later from our good friends.

"Word on the street is that you have a cow hanging in your front yard!"
"That is not true," I replied. "It's an elk."

They were laughing so hard they had to hang up.

WHAT THE HECK? Kentucky is so crazy...

I'm not a vegetarian or anything, but for crying out loud, do we have to hang meat in the front yard? How gross? Now I keep thinking I'm going to have an dead elk at my door or hooves laying in the yard.'s just too much.
