What Infomercials Tempt You?
I confess a tendency to linger a while when the Miracle Blade 3 infomercial comes on. Especially this morning when I needed to give my hands a break from chopping two bags of potatoes for soup. I flipped on the tube and there was the Miracle Blade 3 (the New Perfection Series, don'tcha know).

So 'fess up. Which infomercials, past or present, have tempted you? And have you ever given in?

The Royal We
Yesterday I found myself a couple times praying for things in the first person plural. "We ask your blessing on..." and so forth in extemporaneous prayers. In both cases it was a reactive sort of prayer. You know -- you hear a need and you just pray for it right then rather than waiting for some more formal prayer time when you might have forgotten it. Since I wasn't really consciously thinking about the form of the prayer, I thought this was a good sign that a deeper corporate mindset seems to be developing. Thanks, Lord!

Rave Reviews
Paulo was jealous of Daniel's rave reviews (see 11/26 post), so I dug up some press on brownpau.com:

Competitive Women
Since half of our covenant group couldn't be there tonight, those of us who still wanted to get together decided to have a game night. There were three sweet, wonderful wives; the husbands of two of them; and me. I noted that the sweet, wonderful wives were much more likely to want to give extra chances, let the rules slide a little bit, and generally not get very intense about winning. I, on the other hand, tend to get very intense about games. I want to strictly enforce the rules, not let anything slide, and play to win. If it's a game I know I'm not good at (anything involving much strategy or physical strength), I don't want to play it. Don't see the point in playing if it's not to win. Of course, being me, I start comparing myself to the sweet, wonderful wives and thinking, "Wow. Competitiveness must be a really bad female trait, because they're not competitive and they're sweet, wonderful wives and I am competitive and I'm not one."

I've got an appointment for a sleep study next Friday to find out if the exhaustion I've been experiencing is apnea-related. I really hope they find something that's treatable. I've been really dragging lately. And I'm not exactly Little Mary Sunshine when I'm "normal," but being constantly cranky and ready to burst into tears day after day for weeks on end is unusual even for me. I'm having serious trouble concentrating, too, which has made work more difficult. Anyway, there's my whine of the day. I wouldn't object to anyone praying about this for me! :-)

The Cyber-Creep Mystery Caller Has Been Revealed!
It was Daniel, looking for Paulo's phone number. He finally called back last night. I am much relieved to discover 'twas friend, not foe. He is exonerated from all cyber-creep suspicions, though perhaps I should talk to him about proper hours for making phone calls -- a quarter 'til midnight is a wee bit late! ;^)

"The dream is ended: this is the morning."

The final book of Narnia, you're a sometimes disturbing story about the end of the world and the beginning of a new one. Your characters include an evil monkey, a misguided donkey, stubborn dwarves and all the human characters from the previous books. You manage to be heartbreaking and beautiful at once.

Find out which Chronicles of Narnia book you are.

It's always been my favorite!

Simul Amused et Freaked Out
A few days ago, someone called my home number and left a message for "Elizabeth Byrch." Obviously it's someone who knows me from online. He hasn't called back, and he hasn't 'fessed up. On the one hand, I'm highly amused that someone would tease me like this, but on the other hand, there's part of me thinking that it might be some major cyber-creep who's up to some sort of malicious tricks. So I hope whoever it was comes clean soon so I don't lose any more sleep over it.

Other Reading
I'm not as brave as Emeth to commit to reading a book a week, but I decided to post the title and start date to give myself a little more pressure to actually finish stuff I start reading. I started Cry, the Beloved Country today. Made it as far as the introduction and the word list at the back. I subvocalize when I read, so I always have to stop make sure I can pronounce each word. I'm generally pretty good at pronouncing languages if I can hear them. Unfortunately, I can't hear Afrikaans and Zulu and Xosa, or even the English pronunciations of the various words, so I'm going to find that a bit challenging.

On another note, does anybody have an opinion on which film adaptation of the book is most accurate?

And on yet another note, I've also added my Amazon wish list under Other Links.

I Always Want to Change This
The Collect for Peace Grace:
"O Lord, our heavenly Father, Almighty and everlasting God, who hast safely brought us to the beginning of this day; Defend us in the same with thy mighty power; and grant that this day we fall into no sin, neither run into any kind of danger; but that all our doings, being ordered by thy governance, may be righteous in thy sight; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."

I always want to change it to "and grant that this day we run into no sin, neither fall into any kind of danger." Run and sin seem to go together as volitional things. Fall and danger seem to go together as nonvolitional things.

A Poem I Wrote Last Year
Preposterous pink petunia
pokes up its head
in a flowerbox dead
since July’s drought
and September’s tearing out
by an impatient busybody.

It is November.
This fruit’s beyond reason—
a grace quite ridiculously
borne out of season.

The Spelling Police
We interrupt this blog to bring you an important announcement from the Spelling Police:

There is no such word as woah. The correct spelling is whoa. I must have seen this word misspelled on blogs half a dozen times in the last couple days and I find it almost as maddening as the sound of cracking knuckles. (Ask Paulo for my opinion on cracking knuckles.) Anyway, I would deeply appreciate it if everyone would make an effort to keep this little orthographic tidbit in mind as you post and comment throughout the blogosphere. Thanks ever so!

We now return you to your regularly scheduled blog.

"Learn of Jesus Christ to Pray"
The hymn "Go to Dark Gethsemane" came to mind last night as I was reading Luke 22 and it struck me that we can learn of Jesus Christ to pray not only by His perfect example of surrender to the Father's will, but also by His instruction to His disciples. They were, as the NIV puts it, "exhausted from sorrow," yet He bids them pray against temptation. Our sorrow or joy or whatever other passion seizes us must not be allowed to dictate our prayer lives. And what exhaustion of ours could match His, who "being in anguish...prayed more earnestly"? I so often think sleep is the thing I need most, when anyone glancing at my life for half a second could clearly see that I need to get my head off the pillow and my knees on the floor.
Go to dark Gethsemane, ye that feel the tempter’s power;
Your Redeemer’s conflict see, watch with Him one bitter hour,
Turn not from His griefs away; learn of Jesus Christ to pray.

See Him at the judgment hall, beaten, bound, reviled, arraigned;
O the wormwood and the gall! O the pangs His soul sustained!
Shun not suffering, shame, or loss; learn of Christ to bear the cross.

Calvary’s mournful mountain climb; there, adoring at His feet,
Mark that miracle of time, God’s own sacrifice complete.
“It is finished!” hear Him cry; learn of Jesus Christ to die.

Early hasten to the tomb where they laid His breathless clay;
All is solitude and gloom. Who has taken Him away?
Christ is risen! He meets our eyes; Savior, teach us so to rise.
BTW, this isn't in the Trinity Hymnal. Anybody have any ideas why it might have been excluded?

Church Newsletters
My church hasn't had a newsletter in a couple years, since the last editor moved to Arizona. I'm planning on resurrecting the Faith Report. I've edited newsletters before (it's part of my job, in fact), but I've never had an opportunity to plan such a publication from scratch. So I'm looking for ideas. Does your church have a newsletter? What sorts of features are in it? Do you have an online version I could check out? Thanks in advance for any feedback!

Barb's one of those multi-P chicks -- "a predestinarian, paedobaptistic, partial-preterist, paedocommunionist, postmillenarian Presbyterian" -- and she starts off her blogging career by calling John Barach crazy.

My Ignorance Just Grows By Leaps and Bounds!
So in case you're reading this page top to bottom, and haven't yet gotten to the point where I mention seeing Gideon, Brian and Paulo this evening (Paulo has pix), please now be aware of that fact. We met at the 2002 Kuyper Lecture, which was so far over my head that I'm surprised it didn't require air traffic control. Noting like a good political discussion to make me feel like a moron! I did catch bits and pieces, though. Like when someone referred to the United States Catholic Conference, I was able to mutter to Brian that it is no longer called that, but is now called the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. My knowledge of that point afforded me a moment's smug superiority. Another phrase I caught was a disparaging reference to "small-government fetishists." I found that somewhat ironic, since I was supposed to spend this weekend visiting my small-government fetishist friends at the Highlands Study Center in Virginia. Since my cold is lingering, mostly in the form of aching joints from head to toe, I decided not to go, which left me free to attend this lecture.

Of course more important than the lecture was getting to spend some quality time in good conversation with these three fine gents at the Towson Diner, even if they (the folks at the diner, not the three fine gents) didn't know that regular fried chicken wings are not the same thing as Buffalo wings. Topics included a whirlwind lesson on the evolution of the various Reformed denominations in the Netherlands and North America; neo-Calvinism; neon-Calvinism (day-glo TULIPS figure heavily in this theology); certain conversations Brian is planning to conduct on Saturday; the absolutely monstrous slice of lemon meringue pie that was served to Gideon; Paulo's gadget collection; pietism (which, with it's experiential emphasis, we decided might be another form of neon-Calvinism -- "Oooo! Look at all the bright colors! I must be saved now!"); our various family trees; the hodgepodge collection of foreign phrases we've managed to collect (I can ask for orange juice in hebrew, Paulo can ask for tea in Chinese); and (of course!) blogging. A dandy time was had by all!

Today's Totally Pointless Blog Activity
Since Duane and Sarah are moving today, Duane's not likely to to post a TPBA, therefore I have one to propose: wherever you travel in blogdom today, work the word "dandy" into your posts and comments. When Gideon used it in context tonight, we all agreed that it's a grossly underutilized word. Wouldn't it be dandy if we all strived to reverse that trend?

"Someone's Having Car Touble," I Thought
I just got in from an evening with Gideon, Brian and Paulo. I was getting ready for bed and thought it was odd that someone in the distance was having trouble getting his car to start. You know, that grinding ignition sound when the thing just won't turn over. Then I realized the sound was coming from my computer in the next room (which I had left on this morning). Why would my hard drive sound like someone in the distance having car trouble? It's probably not a very good thing, is it?
