    Last night, I gleefully skipped out of my very last final exam as an undergraduate...the thrill was exhilarating. No more classrooms, no more books, no more teachers' dirty looks! Graduation is this Sunday, Pentecost, at 8 am...I guess they don't think church is all that important or that anyone actually goes anymore.

    On an entirely separate note, why is love so difficult and yet it is so crucial? Struggle, try, love, fail, try, love, fail, struggle...I'm always getting in my own way.

    For one human being to love another: that is perhaps the most difficult of our tasks; the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation. Rainer Maria Rilke

    So, in utter duality... Yipee and Lord have mercy.

    My only real experiences with this fuzzy foe have been of the old produce varieties or the back-of-the-fridge leftover varieties. I have never done this one.

    Yesterday, we discovered that our water heater has a slow leak. Evidently this has been going on for some time because the linen closet beside it has developed a blue-green colony. The wood is warped and all of the blankets were damp and moldy as well.


    I am most afraid of the spores somehow traveling into our lungs. I have to admit, I don't know much about this...I guess some research is in order.

    We hate calling our land lords about these things because our rent is a steal and I'm sure they are no younger than 150...I guess a phone call is in order.

    Go away mold.

    A Quick Timeline or A List of Things You May Not Even Care About

    Ok, I know these things get old...but hey, I've only done one thusfar so I figue I still have a couple left in my quota.

    And Thanks, Carmen for the idea.

    - Was dating the Munkee
    - Started drinking coffee
    - Went to Italy, France, and Germany

    Why Do l Always Do This?

    Will I ever grow out of my procrastinational tendencies? I should be working on a paper that is due on Monday...but what am I doing? Blogging...and getting some chocolate ice cream...checking on the sleeping baby...opening the window...reading one more web page. Seriously, it's a joke.

    The evenings have been so enjoyable now that the little inchworm has been hitting the hay earlier. Not that I don't enjoy my time with him...I do. I just like my space for an hour or two at night. I like it too much...now it is plain laziness and avoidance of what I need to do (sigh).

    Come on, Sara...it ain't that bad.

    The New Testament Gets a Makeover

    Yes folks, it's true. While perusing our local bokstore last night, I happened to find it. There for all to see: "The first Bible to look like a fashion magazine!"

    It really does look like a teen fashion magazine...bright colors, happy frolicking teeny-boppers, cool fonts and pictures, even the classic 10-question surveys with titles like "What are your spiritual gifts?" Apparently this "totally relevant" Bible-zine comes in two versions, Revolve for girls and Refuel for boys.

    I know this is someone's version of a good idea...but I just don't agree.

    It really makes me want to Regurgitate.
