Hello out there!
Now Playing: Been awhile
Okay, first I'd like to apologize for my extended month-long absence. To be honest, for two weeks I forgot I had a blog, or a webpage for that matter. The last two weeks, however, I've had some pc issues, making it nearly impossible for me to stay online for more than ten minutes. So, I shall update all of you for the past month.
Passed one class, had to take an Incomplete in the other (pc issues, lost my references and part of a paper I was working for said class T_T, had to start over.) I turned afformentioned paper in today, and e-mailed it to the instructor to make certain he had recieved it. It was not nearly what it had been--there were four (4) references for all twenty (20) pages...cripes. Had someone ask me "How do I get a Jeebofish off my car without wrecking the paint job?" (There was a whole story about the Jeebofish, but it's kind of long and involved...if you're Christian--I apologize for any offense.) The word "Jeebofish" just made me smile, so I thought I say a word about it.
Speaking of words...I have a few new ones!
Tarradiddle: (meaning) a fib, pretentious nonsense. Pleonasm: (meaning) the use of more words than are necessary to express an idea. (that definition is a pleonasm (?))
Also, I watched one of my favorite movies again, and again, and yet again...just because, well, dammit, I went all the way to Blockbuster, paid them some money, and rented the damn thing, now it's mine til friday--so I'm gonna use it like I mean it, yeah baby! The movie? Boondock Saints. Now I'm not so exceptionally on the, shall we say, "orthodox" side of religious beliefs, but that doesn't mean Catholicism doesn't still facsinate the beJeebofish outta me. (Hey, Jen, you like how I worked "Jeebofish in there"?) For those of you who have seen the movie, but still don't know the prayer by heart, here it is:
"And shepherds we shall be,
for thee my Lord for thee,
power hath descended forth from thy hand,
that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command.
We shall flow a river forth to thee,
and teeming with souls shall it ever be.
In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti."
(by: Troy Duffy who both wrote and directed Boondock Saints, and will have a special place in my heart forever--gotta love Willem Dafoe in that movie! He just gets so into character! Fuck! Go watch the movie yourself!) Now for those of you, and you know who you are, who do not speak Latin or aren't Catholic, here is a translation of the last line: "In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit." (As if that wouldn't be obvious as all git oot, right?)
Okay, that's all...rent the Boondock Saints...
Veritas! Aequitas! Aut viam inveniam aut faciam!!
