It's been a long time since I've done one of these posts.
Part 1 is here. Part 2 is here. Part 3 is here. Part 3 (again) is here. Part 4 is here.
i. I eat onions, though as a child I swore I never would.
iii. There is a thing called Transcendental Folk music. There is a band called Elephant Revival. I now own their second album.
v. I like my Kindle more than I ever imagined I would.
one. The line is drawn, the curse it is cast...
vii. Holding Avonlea and rocking her to sleep at night is one great joy that I cannot describe.
ix. Imagine the grossest thing you've ever done/had done to you. Now multiply that by around forty-six or so. Now throw in a dog and, uhm, doggy byproduct. Let's say that I win.
xi. I abandoned Facebook. My account's still open (for those that read Rememorandom there), but I'm not planning on coming back.
xiii. My faith has been challenged more this year than any year ever before, like I'm being refined in a forge fire. This is exciting, yet also un-fun.
two. The slow one now will later be fast...
xv. I'm pretty sure that there are no ugly characters in The Great Hunt. Everybody is uncannily beautiful.
xvii. A few weeks ago I took a razor blade to my head. Since then, I've repeated this process weekly. I love having a bald head. (Keisha does not.)
xix. I've got a stack of books to review from publishers/authors, and I don't have much time to devote to them at the moment.
three. As the present now will later be past...
xxi. Big meeting next week, kinda making me nervy, as they always do.
xxiii. I'm still reading the Fables comics, and it's the only one I actually take time to go to the comic shop and purchase.
xxv. Stella cut her cornea a while back, but it's mostly healed.
xxvii. I make my own trail mix. Holla.
four. The order is rapidly fadin'...
xxix. Currently reading The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson, Bloodlines by John Piper, Don't Check Your Brains at the Door by Josh McDowell, the Book of Second Kings and Second Chronicles by God, and The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan. I'm starting A Dance With Dragons tomorrow, methinks.
xxxi. Sometimes I get emails from people asking me to review a book and I can tell that they've never spent any time on my blog. The insincerity is easy to spot. But sometimes I get respectful-and-sincere emails, where the sender at least pretends like they're trying. I'm much more likely to say yes with the latter.
xxxiii. That's a long Roman Numeral.
five. And the first one now will later be last...
xxxv. I love Monday Night Tennis league.
xxxvii. I wish OBKY was a bike-friendly city.
xxxix. Parentheses are definitely the best of the punctuation marks.
xli. The word ampersand (&) originates from us having an open-ended alphabet, concluding with "...X, Y, Z and per se and." This morphed to "...X, Y, and Z" somehow, and the & at the end dropped off. Fascinating.
six. Oh the times they are a-changin.
xliii. I've memorized over fifty verses of Scripture so far for 2011, putting me at about the halfway mark.
xlv. Skyrim is in the future, and so is the new Zelda game, but I shan't buy either, as gaming has practically ceased to exist. I've still not beat New Vegas...
xlvii. I make monstrous Excel sheets with lots of useful/useless information.
xlix. Seems like a good stopping point.
