Wherein the continuing saga of personal revelations are brought to light. Links for the previous editions are at the bottom.
a. Lots of new music have I received lately, through either purchase or trade, including, but not limited to, Bright Eyes, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Damien Rice, Cold War Kids, Arcade Fire, Ryan Adams, Hanson, Monsters of Folk, Andrew Peterson, John Mark McMillan, Luke Dowler, and a few others.
b. I bought Fallout: New Vegas today.
c. My yard is getting aerated and seeded on Thursday. I know very little about lawn care.
d. I sometimes wonder about other bloggers that are no longer active and wonder what happened to them. Did they tire of the blogosphere? I hope they're okay.
e. Peter said to Paul you know all those songs we wrote...
f. My head pastor resigned on Sunday. The church is in for an interesting few months as we work through everything.
g. I wrote a new song yesterday. Maybe I'll put it up here when I get it recorded.
h. I'm watching (and even enjoying) Glee. I'm not sure why.
i. I sliced into my thumb yesterday while chopping potatoes. On the bright side, this recipe for zuppa toscano soup tasted exactly like Olive Garden's.
j. I really want to retry the Wheel of Time series again. I love the new ebook covers, and all the hype for the next book is making me excited.
j.5. ...are just the rules of the game and the rules are the first to go...
k. Stella & Sofie may both have ear mites. Ugh.
l. Going to a Halloween party Saturday. Got a beautiful costume planned. Expect pictures. Maybe.
o. Uncertainty, especially in important things, like design work for a project, is a difficult thing to deal with. I'm not sure how confident I am in some of my work, partially because I've only had my job for 17 months, partially because everything I've done has been self-taught, and partially because engineering requires educated guesses.
oo. ...Now talking to God is Laurel begging Hardy for a gun...
g2. It's hard to believe that something like the narwhal actually exists.
a1. Just about everything I eat kills my stomach.
p. The del sol is giving me a little trouble. I think it's the starter, but, like with lawn work, I know very little about vehicles.
q. Going through the book of Matthew in Sunday School has been really great. We're progressing only a few verses per week because of the awesome discussions.
w. One new blog I've been reading: Omphaloskepsis. Interesting book notes there.
24. It's really hard to beat Bruce Springsteen. I'd love to see the Boss in concert...
y. I miss college. Too bad I can't make money as a professional student.
z. RED looks like a pretty sweet movie. So does Hereafter.
(z.) Fall is still my favorite season.
[z.] ...I've got a girl in the war man I wonder what it is we've done.
*. I come to complete stops at STOP signs; I use my turn signals; I don't speed like crazy; it irks me to see people doing otherwise.
&. My ipod is near capacity full. This is going to be problematic sometime relatively soon.
