I've got a bad case of Joe envy.

One of my favorite sites is Joe Carter's Evangelical Outpost. I met Joe once and I would say that he's a pretty forgettable guy, but then- I remember him and he doesn't remember me. Before you check out EO, you'd better know what you're getting into: Here are a few items from Joe's Resume´ -
I once solved the mysteries of the Navier-Stokes equations but forget the answer before I could write it down.

The Pirahã people whistle an epic tale of my grandeur.

The Canadian Forces Dental Branch has a standing order to kill me on sight.

I can tear holes in the space-time continuum and repair them with a quantum duct tape that I created.

The best job I ever had was the summer I worked as a roadie for Lawrence Welk.

The scent of my pheromones has been known to ease birthing pains in Chinese pandas.

It's been said that my face resembles a Picasso painting.

Tom Wolfe wears white suits as an homage to my virtue.

I once quelled a riot in Chile by singing "Muskrat Love" in fluent Spanish.
Yeah, I'm definitely jealous. The most impressive thing I can say about myself is that once a skunk shot at me from point blank range and missed. OTOH, at least my story is true!

What? Of course I remember you, Mark. We met at the first GodBlogCon in 2006.

I don't forget my fellow Godbloggers. ; )

Well, that and you can run further than any human should (or any human in their right mind would).
