apes, knaves, and rogues

While I was at the bookstore today, enjoying the heck out of some tea (of which i have an ever deepening appreciation for, thanks to the Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy) I saw some interesting books.

  • Acorna’s Revenge Rebels by Anne McCaffrey

Seriously! After seeing the subtitle, i thought for sure that this book had been written by my friend Rocky:

  • The further adventures of Unicorn Girl? Unicorn Girl Strikes Back?
  • Unicorn Girl goes to Washington? Unicorn Girl and the Temple of Doom? Unicorn Girl rides a bike?
  • The Neverending Unicorn Girl? Unicorn Ninja!
  • American Unicorn 3!

She doesn’t even look like a unicorn girl in on the cover! I mean, where’s the horn, eh?
then, i chanced immediately upon another book, and thought for sure it was a Hegaman conspiracy...

  • Shadow of the Hegemon by Orson Scott Card.

Recreational Coffee

Yesterday, was the first recreational use of just your old straight coffee for me in quite some time. ages really.
And I’d like to note how the strongest of emotions goes with the impossiblest of situations.  Perhaps I will be able to reconcile the two together, but as always, it seems impossible.
I picked up the works of Jonathan Edwards, and will be enjoying those next summer. I also picked up the three set work of N.T. Wright.
Those should keep me busy when I find some time to read.

I’m probably going to go back to Idaho after I graduate. Although I am desirous to go to Salem.
Then sometime in the future I will go back to school.

The Burnination is over!

The two week spree of victims charred by the spa of 112° has finally come to an end.
Onlookers noticed the swath cut by the 'spa of total devastation,' as a line of charred, burninated, scathed, and scalded spa-goers.
One brave spa goer attempted to withstand the ever-heated waters, but all accounts of that individual seem to indicate that he ended up in the sanitarium.
