*Note to all of you out there…if you are offended by the words “snot” and…well, “snot”, read no farther. These are the rantings of one who misses the days of frolicking in the sunshine because she is indoors feeling wretched.

Dear Sinuses,

Generally, you do a good job of doing what you were made to do. You allow me to breathe, and to speak, and even to sing, though you really could do a better job at that last one. Most of the time, you even do a good job at keeping yourselves healthy. You produce the right amount of mucus at the right consistency at the right times to keep those nasty little viruses away.

What you are doing right now, however, is not so good. I realise that you need to produce snot to be able to rid yourselves of that dratted outer layer of membrane that has been so wrongly infected with said viruses. However, the amount you are producing is really over the top. THIS IS RIDICULOUS!!! There is no possible way that you were designed to produce more snot than you could possibly hold. Please return to functioning the way you were created immediately.

Thank you,
A Concerned Citizen

Means brillaint. In Chinese. And if you know where it comes from…well, you’re just cool.

(Same place as “shiny”!)

Happy Thanksgiving, all!!!

What am I thankful for, you ask?

Ok, I’ll tell you, but this is only a representative sample:

  • growth, of all kinds, because it only comes from God
  • my small, green, swimmer
  • DanceDance Revolution
  • joy from ashes
  • new things, new beginnings, beginnings of new things
  • penguins!
  • Adobe PhotoShop and my friend who taught me how to use it
  • Tetris
  • my books
  • all the people who are concerned about me/want to make sure I’m not lonely because I’m not going away for Thanksgiving this year
  • ALL my books
  • our house
  • our orange tree

Adjectives

22 November 2005

I find it highly amusing that there is an adjective that basically means, “like an adjective” (adjectival).

Or, at least I did this morning.

Proven.

1. That a girl with no money really shouldn’t go shopping, because she will find the cutest shirt in the whole, entire WORLD and then she’ll have to buy it, even though she still doesn’t have any money.

2. That Rachmaninov is truly one of the world’s greatest composers (listen to his Vespers…now…as in, stop reading my Blog and go listen).

3. Cummings is not so bright (It was sunny all day. The sun started to go down around 4 or 4:15, or at least, our backyard started to cool off and get really shady. What time does the turtle choose to sun himself? 4:30.)

4. Stick shifts are more fun to drive than automatics…I had so much fun with Stephanie’s clutch going up the huge hill on Bastanchury on the way home from church.

Me: So, I’m going along in the gospel of John, with these commentaries, and they keep saying that John is referring to one thing, or the other. And my hermeneutics prof. says that Bible verses only have one meaning. And I just can’t buy that, because John just seems like the type of guy who would legitimately refer to more than one thing in a passage.

Jill: Well, yeah, and besides, there’s the Holy Spirit who’s inspiring the Bible…and I don’t think anyone could say that HE never means more than one thing at a time.

Me: Yeah…that Holy Spirit…he’s just a double-entendre sort of guy.
