Valerie is a 42-year-old, single, Reformed Christian lady who lives in Baltimore. She doesn't remember a time
before she knew and loved Jesus, but she does remember accepting John Calvin into her heart in March of 2000.
Valerie is a member of Christ Reformed Evangelical Church in Annapolis.
Though her career aspiration is to be a housewife, Valerie has not yet found anyone suitable who wishes to hire
her for employment in that field (or, more properly, anyone suitable has not found her), so in the meantime she
earns her daily bread working in communications -- editing, writing, print design and website management.
I Need to See Say Anything Again
Two of my all-time favorite movie quotes (YouTube to the rescue!):
"I don't want to buy anything, sell anything or process anything."
Just sheer movie line awesomeness.
"You must chill!"
This is one of my most-used lines for talking to myself. Really...I must chill. This is a particularly useful self-talk line when contemplating real estate transactions and their related stresses.

I started to apply the doctrines of grace more fully in the early 90s...what better way to make it through eight years of the Clinton Administration. :-) The Puritans...now THERE was some major "Rare Jewel" jellin'.
I have a longtime friend who blogs regularly, and shares a lot of angst (not surprisingly, he's in ministry)...lately he has begun regularly reading great stuff like "Valley of Vision" and using the Daily Office in his devotions. Yay! Three cheers for the Tulip...keeping believers sane for over four hundred years!
I don't get it. Why is this movie excerpt so special? (I've never seen or heard of the movie; clueless as usual!) ~Eleanor

And for the record, no, if I had a daughter I would not let Lloyd Dobbler within a hundred yards of her. But in the suspended-disbelief world of the movie screen, I gotta love that boy.

I just wondered what it was that caused you to post this, especially when you feel as strongly about the role of men as you do.(a feeling which I share). In any case, I like it because it shows that there are alot of "clueless" people out there that have a bit more to offer by way of sheer decency than the world would give credit for these days. :>) ~Eleanor
