I know, there's a lot

So, this is my sister's dad's mid-life hobby. Yeah, you know you wish you had one; especially to get to that one class across campus.

I'm going to NY.
Then to Germany.

Then to Africa.

Heck yes.

The buzz begins (repost for some)

As the date approaches for the Equality Ride's visit, the buzz is beginning around campus. Letters were sent out to all of the students today stating that Biola is letting them on campus and hoping to provide a peaceful environment by only allowing closed sessions for select members of the Biola campus to dialogue with the members of the Equality Ride. I don't know. I guess it is a great way to try and keep the extremists out of their hair, I know a lot of people who are very willing to dialogue with them however, and it seems like they might not get that chance. At least it seems like the group will have a better welcoming than at Liberty, Dr. Cook, as far as we know, isn't calling a task force to arrest them as soon as they step on campus and start their speeches.

You can read about their expreience as they have traveled around the country to schools on their itenerary to spread the view of their motto "Learn from History - End Spiritual Violence." here:

I personally am somewhat sad, though I appreciate Biola's precautions, that the sessions are going to be closed. Well, maybe I will try and keep a running update on the campus buzz. Until then be sure to check out their site and read a little about them.

...she sits there on her bed reading the news as tears swell in her eyes, "God bless the country, bless the people Lord. Heal them. Thirty-three is too young to die. Father save them. Don't you want them Lord? Can't you do something?"

"They don't want me, my child."

Heck yes for customer service:

Subject: Jace - Your CD Baby Order! (#1178866)
From: "CD Baby loves Jace"

Your CD has been gently taken from our CD Baby shelves with
sterilized contamination-free gloves and placed onto a satin pillow.

A team of 50 employees inspected your CD and polished it to make sure
it was in the best possible condition before mailing.

Our packing specialist from Japan lit a candle and a hush fell over
the crowd as he put your CD into the finest gold-lined box that money
can buy.

We all had a wonderful celebration afterwards and the whole party
marched down the street to the post office where the entire town of
Portland waved 'Bon Voyage!' to your package, on its way to you, in
our private CD Baby jet on this day, Sunday, February 12th.

I hope you had a wonderful time shopping at CD Baby. We sure did.
Your picture is on our wall as 'Customer of the Year'. We're all

Today I might not be a vacuum user

In the first thirty seconds of powerful roaring life with my new Dirt Devil vacuum, it shut off-and won't turn back on.

Possible Reasons from the manual:

1. Power cord not firmly plugged into outlet. (I don't think that is the problem)
2. Blown fuse or tripped breaker. (That wouldn't surprise me due to the overwhelming blow of such a small machine, it literally took off when I took it on, ,and the body is about the size of a cat)
Or 3. Needs service. (This would be typical in my case. All that I bought last semester in the area of home improvement [aka, couch, ottoman, and vacuum] have shown signs of help wanted, or in other words are broken)

Though I have yet to make completely sure that my outlet is actually still working, I have found that no amount of resetting, or securing the plug has done me any good in my attempts to revive the roaring machine. Llama face indeed.
