Me: The work order system is broken. We can't put any work orders in.
My Boss: Put in a work order for it... they'll fix it on Monday.

A protestant oversight
It strikes me that, as part of our (that is, modern American protestant Christianity) gut-level rejection of much of Catholic practice, we have alienated a perfectly scriptural, viable, and even vital member of the Body of Christ, and rejected out of hand a valid calling for some of Christ’s followers. That that to which I am here referring is the call of celibacy. Celibacy seems an...
are infinitely better than parenthetical citations. They are cleaner, more clear, and generally contribute better to the overall flow of a paper. It is a mystery to me why they insisted on teaching us to use parentheticals in high school, and I am so happy that my professors allow us to pick our own format so long as we properly cite all of our sources.
One of those days
that makes living in the South entirely worthwhile. The sky is utterly clear, so piercingly blue that it makes your heart ache. Recent rains cleaned the pollen and the humidity out of the air. Everything is so verdant that it looks like even the leaves have leaves, and the smell of living things is everywhere. I’ve got a cup of chocolate mint tea, several hours, and a paper to write on...

Well then. Travel adventures.
Flight out of Houston back to good old Red Stick got cancelled. Fortunately, I hardly had time to worry before I found out they had already gotten me a seat on a later flight this evening. Jarod wasn’t quite so fortunate—they found a flight into NOLA for him. So now we have a roughly 8 hour layover. I’ll have time to finish a paper for Roman history, and to explore the Houston...
Excellent first half of Spring Break! Now, home!
For the first half of break I had to stay in Baton Rouge for work, so I’ve been relaxing here for a few days. Been good to be in Baton Rouge without having any serious obligations. Reade rounded out her tour of friends at southern schools by stopping in here for a couple of days, so we’ve been hanging out. Very good catching up with her; she hasn’t had the easiest college...

THIS IS AMAZING and also terrifying →
Coolest thing. Ever.
God made him who knew no sin to be sin for us.
So that in him we might become the righteousness of God. While we were still weak, at the right time, Christ died for the ungodly. Christ suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring us to God. He was pierced for our transgressions. He was crushed for our iniquities. The Punishment that brought us peace was upon him And by his wounds, we are healed. Today is the day...
