For now, just this one comment: I laugh heartily at these simple, strange people.

Here’s a nice little web application. Works just like MS Word, but it’s all in your browser. And it’s free, and does’t even require registration.

But, yes, it’s true. God has blessed us with snips and snails and puppy dog tails.

Argh. It is hard to be cheerful with people like this. I ordered some things for work. Time sensitive things, with a specified ship date. They were supposed to be shipped tomorrow, so that I would get them by Friday and have it for next week. Instead, I got it all last Friday. Which means it won’t be good by the time I need it next week.
So I called to fix the problem, and after getting shuffled around a bit, I finally end up with the lady who thinks I’m taking time away from her day to correct this mistake. It’s a real drain.
Plus I’m tired, because I was up periodically with the girls last night, as they’re all three sick-throwing up and feverish.

Keep your eyes peeled for a special edition Credenda that will be circulating soon.
And when you get it, be sure to pay extra special attention to the article entitled ‘That Wonderful Cup’.

I said it before, and I’ll probably say it again… “they were right”.
Today we were having our supper, and the girls got Mountain Dew to drink. We call it pop. So, Ashley took a drink and felt some on her upper lip. She looked at me and said, “I am popish”.

Some people can look at something like this, and find it laughable and irrational. Other folks can look at it, though, and be edified and encouraged.
What do you suppose makes the difference between the two reactions?

No more will I be spending three hours a day commuting. No more will I spend hundreds of dollars on gas a month. No more will I miss breakfast with my family.
Back in January I turned in an application for a position nearly indentical to my present job, only it’s in Lynchburg. I interviewed earlier this month, yesterday I spoke with the President of the college, and today I was officially offered the position. I accepted.

Lately we’ve watched quite a few films. Here we go…
Pride & Prejudice: Very disappointed. I didn’t like a lot of what they did. And it got worse and worse as it went on, anticlimaxing with the pathetic, laughable ending scene. I literally laughed out loud three or four times in that short scene. And Keira Knightley is no Elizabeth Bennet (and she kept sticking her tongue out when she smiled).
Wallace & Gromit – The Curse of the Were-Rabbit: I was expecting it to be funnier than I actually found it to be. But it was good, and very funny. “Beware of the Moon!”
March of the Penguins: Very well done. The girls watched it a few times, and love talking about it. Of course, they loved talking about the penguins that die at the dinner table with Sunday guests… but that’s okay. It’s an amazing story what those penguins do for their babies.
Bringing Up Baby: Yawn. I fell asleep watching it twice, and have now decided that I’m not going to bother finishing it. The first 20 or 30 minutes were funny, but after that it was just monotonous.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire: Nate DURSLEY Wilson is off his rocker. Of course, I have a theory about Nate Wilson and Harry Potter that has been independently confirmed (by a friend coming up with the same theory on his own). I’ll not go into that here.
With this fourth HP movie, I have settled into the idea that I’m not going to really like any of the HP films. I hardly saw a point to half of what was going on, they hacked the story up so much. And Voldemort looks stupid.
Millions: I liked it. That little boy is cute, and his character is so weird (in a good way) that you can’t help but love this movie.

Brett Bonecutter posts some top-notch content. Good enough to earn a spot on my link list (which is rare these days, what with RSS feeds and all).

Sorry about the downtime. Much thanks to Geof, though, for getting it all squared away.
