Post-Rapture Wrap-Up

So, as you might have all assumed, May 21 passed and the followers of Harold Camping turned out to be wrong that the Rapture was coming that day.

Well, you’d be wrong!

Hah! I’m in Heaven right now tweeting while Jesus checks out some movies on Netflix, and I’m thumbing my nose at you because the Apocalypse is soon to start. And I bet you haven’t seen much of Kirk Cameron, either! He’s right here next to me, talking to God about how wonderful bananas are (bananas being the “atheist’s nightmare”)!

OK, yeah, you caught me lying.

I wasn’t raptured, and now for that lie and for making fun of Kirk Cameron, I never will be. *SadProgressiveChristianPanda*

I’m still really busy in life, mostly re-engaging with Mrs. Blue in some most amazing ways and also with Little Girl Blue in very different but also amazing ways. So, I don’t have any huge thought-provoking posts in me. And so, while I realize that the whole “ridicule the rapture” thing from last week is probably already at the “jumping the shark” stage, I’m going to be lazy and leave you with a series of some of my Rapture-related tweets over the past few days about the whole Rapture Debacle, in chronological order from oldest to newest:

I’ll probably only be raptured if I cancel my Saturday plans & stay home to repent nonstop

Don’t worry, there’s no cellulite in Heaven (which is good, considering there are apparently no clothes, either)

Dear Rapture Predictors: IF there is going to be an actual Rapture (& it’s not simply symbolism in Bible), you will NOT have advance warning

Rapture called off, everyone!…back to your regularly scheduled human failings, foibles and outright deviancy…

At roughly 1:40 a.m. EST on 5/21/2011, I experienced rapture, but I don’t think it was the kind the twenty-firsters were predicting.

Special today at Starbucks until 6 pm PST: The fraptureccino !

Understand, of course, the fraptureccino isn’t for everyone: coffee, mocha cream base, caramel syrup, blood, wormwood, small bits o brimstone

Unless media has finally tracked him down, I’m assuming Camping, given his silence, has been raptured to Barbados with flock’s $$$

Now that the rapture is old news I wanna move on to next order of business: Our new reptilian overlords, soon to arrive from Alpha Centauri

The only post-Rapture wrap-up I care to pass along (wish I’d written it) http://www.caffeinatedpriest.com/2011/05/whats-not-left-behind.html

Changes a’coming…

As I hinted before, things might change a bit around here. Probably nothing drastic.

However, some initial changes are in order, first among them to update the “About this Blog” and “About Me” stuff, since my spiritual journey has undergone some significant changes since I started this blog. My core faith in God and Jesus and belief in the Holy Spirit remain, but much else has changed, and so I need to reflect those changes in those places (as well as perhaps in some upcoming posts).

Where’s the Deacon?

I have just been too busy, and some of my time has been occupied by stuff I literally cannot tell you about.

Suffice to say that I’ve been busy. I see some folks have commented recently, and I usually respond to comments, so my apologies to anyone who’s been ignored. Frankly, I’m not sure what the future is of this blog or what direction it will take, though I am highly unlikely to simply scrap it.

But, believe it or not, in addition to this blog, my Tales of the Whethermen blog, a blog for my job, and two erotica blogs under my other online identity…I’ve just created a third blog for that alternate identity. Yeah, I know how to punish myself and spread myself thin.

Didn’t help that thanks to 5-year-old (almost 6 now) Little Girl Blue, I lost probably two months of productivity trying to advance her character through the online game Wizard 101

I’ll sort it all out soon enough, though, and get this blog back on something more like a regular schedule…though who knows what form it will take.




Deacon Blue is the blogging persona of editor and writer Jeffrey Bouley. The opinions of Jeff himself on this blog, and those expressed as Deacon Blue, in NO WAY should be construed as the opinions of anyone with whom he has worked, currently works, or will work with in the future. They are personal opinions and views, and are sometimes, frankly, expressed in more outrageous terms than I truly feel most days.
