$50,000 text

Kate-Moore-US-Texting-Champion-218x300Kate Moore, a 15-year-old Iowa HS student recently won $50,000 in the LG U.S. National Texting Championship. How did she get so good at texting? Apparently she owns a 14,000 texts-per-month habit. Get this — 250,000 people participated in the competition.

Moore’s winning phrase was “Zippity Dooo Dahh Zippity Ayy … My oh MY, what a wonderful day! Plenty of sunshine Comin’ my way … ZippittyDooDahZippityAay! WondeRful feeling, Wonderful day!” which she completed flawlessly in less than 60 seconds.

re: the random-ness

Ok...so you've located the place where I put down my random thoughts. The key word here is random: music, sports, art, food, books, news, spiritual musings, weird stories, etc. I'm especially interested in how everyday experiences of life intersect with the ancient stories of Scripture. Thanks for reading.
