A Jim Clarification

A few weeks back, I posted about how happy I was that Dan was back preaching after a summer of vacation and sabbatical. I had a comment posted by Jim and I just merrily assumed it was my friend Jim. N. Why I assumed this is still a mystery given that I comment frequently on my other friend Jim M.'s blog. I even link to it on my page. And that the other Jim N. is a blog reader and not a commenter. I replied in the comments back to him making reference to a few "inside jokes". He chose today, 3 weeks or so later, to tell me it wasn't him.

Here is the moral of the story.
1. Don't use the blog comments section for "inside jokes" unless you want to look like a candidate for creepy girl of the year.
2. When you click on the link that your commenter's name brings up actually read it!
3.If you are to make a mistaken identity error, pray hard that you mistake your Jim N. with the Jim M. you have listed in your blog links. Jim Martin is a fellow minister who I love and respect and am always challenged by. And, I might add he is gracious - gracious enough not to have replied back with a WHAT???? I am sure he was a little taken aback by my warm fuzzy declarations of how connected I feel to him and how I love him, but nevertheless he was gracious.

So Jim N. get yourself a blog profile so you can at least comment and I can harass you over the Internet!!!!

I have no idea whot lol means, and if I ever figure out how to blog I will. But since I lack a conscience your harrassment will mean very litte.

I'm not going to comment. It's your lucky day.

Arlene Kasselman said...

Scott, I will take the "grace" and run!

Frank Bellizzi said...

I started to make a Frank remark about your Jim clarification.

At this point, I'll simply say, "Oh my!"

Arlene Kasselman said...

Frank I appreciate no "Frank" comments and besides, you may want to keep your name clear :-)!!!

Jim Martin said...


You are letting me off too easy. On my comment, only my first name appeared. (I have since tried to adjust that in Blogger profile.)

By the way---no problem at all. :)

Finally a word from the victim and this topic can now be put to rest!!!! This has really turned into quite a funny life tends to have these moments!

Arlene, you wrote to Jordan:

I have a theory that if you can not preach a message to the hurting masses in say, Sudan, or Oak Cliff you shouldn't preach it in a mega-church in Houston.

Huzzah, Arlene. I may need to ponder that a while, but it sounds exactly right, and I'm glad you posted it.
