More fun with bible passages!*

Heard this one in English class, thought some stuff sounded off, especially the way the bible liked to use the verb "lay" and it's many conjugates.

Isaiah 11:6 "The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, The leopard shall lie down with the young goat, The calf and the young lion and the fatling together; And a little child shall lead them."

So let's see here. First off let me say that the quote that led me in this direction was the misquote our English teacher gave to us via popular usage ("The lion shall lay down with the lamb"), which made me wonder why the bible would be supportive of interspecies sheet-dancing.

Ok, so wolves and lambs living together, not a problem...though lamb means younger sheep...uh...hmm.

That leopard lying down with the young goat thing is kinda sketchy too, I'm almost suprised none of the preists used that for justification of...well you know. Then there's the calf and the young lion and the fatling (a pig maybe) wrangling either a 3-way or some polygamous relationships. All led by a child.

...hmm



*This is only meant to be half-serious, or something     
After much panicked driving about, I managed to get to Jess's wedding. It was a nice, somewhat quick and nontraditional affair, but none of the meaning was compromised. Gwen was there, so I socialized a bit with her and also talked a lot to Jess's uncle about school and future plans (or theorized future plans). Then I had to leave early but I made sure to get a dance or two in with Gwen before leaving, and that was nice.

death to apathy

So this term i'm doing a major group project that involves working with 4 other people to create a game. Already I'm having my misgivings because I don't think what we're making will actually be a game (puzzle games are hard to make, esp. when you try to innovate), and to be fair I enjoy action more...but whatever, I was talked into accepting this so fine, I'm ok with that.

What I'm not ok with is the fact that nobody seems to have remembered we actually have to have a challenge, I even brought up this misgiving to my roommate, who is in the group, and he's like "I don't care"

Well you fucking should care! This is our grade at stake, as well as the grades of the other people in the group! What the fuck would make you not care about that especially when we're trying to prove we actually can do work!?

Arrgh.  

musical thought

I get down on myself a lot for not being able to write music, and yet I just realized it might not matter. After all, Nickelback released an album where 90% of the songs were the same damn chords only with key changes, and that sold well.

And I actually like Nickelback, but still, the fact that "Animals" and "Sign of a Bullet" sound like the same song until the lyrics start, well... 

well that's new...

Apparently there was gang-related violence on Highland Street tonight (Highland Street being one of the four streets that encircle the WPI Campus. 4 people were shot on or near that street. A bit freaky when I think about it but then again I was spending the night indoors anyway.   
So I finally caved in to all the pressure (percieved) on me and asked Kate out. No it wasn't the first thing I said in our morning conversation, it was more of the last, and it was offering to ask her out to dinner. Of course, predictably, she said "Well I am seeing someone," but she said she'd love to anyway.

So yeah, she is seeing someone...guess I should've abandoned all hope a bit sooner.

I'm not too disheartened though...

Subject Thingy

So anyway the costume issue is resolved, thanks to iParty (or is it I-Party...will Mac sue them? who can say? DUN DUN DUNNNHHHH). Now all I have are all the other issues...like the one where i haven't done my "sit on my ass somewhere outside and write about what i see" assignment for Creative Writing, but that's like a 10 minute thing anyway.

Also my calendar looks like it has a gun design drawn on it now thanks to how i coincidentally posted things to it this month.
