    this could just as well be pissing me, but since its done, its now making me happy.

    for the first time in almost 4 years i did a full closet clean. im a terrible pack rat so this was a huge undertaking. now its done, and there is a huge bag of garbage, (boxes, papers...), a huge bag for AMVETS, a big bin for storage, and a pile of stuff i might be able to sell. and above all, my closet looks very nice.

    :bigstar:

    Reminds me of my dad in a good way, asked for a suit when I was about 14 (we thought I'd stopped growing, and I'd already started working)

    "Dad, I want a suit."

    "Where you gonna work?"

    "Dad, I need it for a job interview."

    "Better get a job so you can get that interview suit."



    Also, nearly half done compiling quotes, which is the hardest part of this paper. I'm not sure how this text is not available in RTF online, but I've made a lot of headway. Next two steps A)insert filler B) bs a thesis, then on to the professor.

    Pg 96 her time in þe desert
    “Þus Ic becom on þis westen and þanone oð þisne andweardan dæg ic feorrode, symle fleonde, mine God anbidigende and gehihtende, se þe hale gedeð ealle fram þissere worulde brogan þa þe to him gecyrrað… Hit is for seofon and feowertigum wintrum, þæs þe me þincð þat ic of þære halgan byrug ut for.”
    Pg 100 continuing temptation, going it alone
    Þonne geseah þyllice geþohtas on astigan, þonne astrehte ic me sylfe on eorðan and þa wangas mid tearum ofergeat, forþon þe ic to soðan gehihte me ætstandan…
    Pg 102, scriptures taught to her by God, release from þe fetters of þe flesh
    “Gelyf Me, ne geseah ic nænne man buton þe, oþþe wildeor, oþþe æniges cynnes nyten siððan ic Iordanen þæt wæter oferferde and ic hyder on þis westen becom, ne ic stæfcyste witodlice ne leornode ne þæra nanum ne hlyste þe þa smeadon and ræddon. Ac Godes word is cucu and scearp, innan lærende þis mennisce andgyt.”
    “þas þincg þu gehyrdest, mann, eac ic þe la halsige þurh þone Drihten Hælendne Crist urne Alysend þæt þu nanum men ne asecge ær þan þe me God of flæsces bendum alyse.”
    Pg104 requests þe sacraments, precognition
    And Ic þe eft binnan geares fyrste on þyssere ylcan tide æteowe, and þu me gesihst.
    Genim sumne dæl on gehalgodum fæte þæs godcundan lichaman and þæs gelyffæstan blodes, and hafa mid þe, and geanbida min on þa healfe Iordanen ðe to worulde belimpeð, oþþe ic þe to cume þa lyffestan gerynu to onfonne.
    Pg 110 miracles, nunc dimittus
    Soþlice, ealra þæra nihte þeostru þa þæs monan byrhtnyss onlihte, sona swa heo þære rode tacn on þa wætru drencte. Swa eode heo onuppan þa hnescan yþa wiþ his weardes, gangende swa swa on drigum.
    And þær onfeng þam halgum gerynum Cristes lichaman and blodes mid abrædedum handum. And in þa heofon locigende and mid tearum geomrigende, and þus cwæð: Forlet nu, Drihten, þine þeowene æfter þinum worde in sibbe faran, forþon þe mine Eagan gesawon þine hælo
    118 modesty and departure from þe world.
    “And swa þone lichaman on eorþan oferwreah, swa nacode swa he hi ærest gemette, buton gewealdar þæs toslitenan rægeles þe he Zosimus hire ær to wearp of þam Maria sumne hire lichaman bewæfde.”

    there was this asshole on the highway today... in a early 2000s grey Mercedes driving 80 on a 50 speed limit and weaving in and out, crossing over three lanes at a time, no signaling, and riding asses...

    I was so happy to see him get totally snagged by cop... the best part that it was one of those unmarked dodge challenger cars that was kinda following him for a while so there were a ton of violations cited probably.

    driving fast and over the speed limit is ok... but driving like a dick and endangering everyone else's lives... I'm so happy I witness his ass getting snagged...

    Man I wish I could have seen that.

    Reminds me of one time when my wife and I were driving on the interstate during a snow storm. Because of the conditions we were driving about 25 mph when suddenly this SUV ass goes flying by us at 60 mph. I think to myself what dick. At that exact moment his back wheels broke loose, the car spins around 180, and collides into the median barrier in such a way that you could tell everybody was okay but that there would be significant body damage to the car.

    ^the scary part for me was I was already doing about 70+ (in the 50 limit) in the left lane (but there were about 3 of us) and that fucking unmarked copcar dodge challenger was behind me for about 5min....

    and then the fucking charger started flashing his lights... the scary assed "inside the windshield/front vent unmarked cop car lights" and siren... I looked on my dash saw 70+mph and thought "fuck I'm finally going to get my first ever traffic ticket... after 17 years of driving..."

    but the cop swerves into the left shoulder and screams ahead and nabbs the dick in the grey merc...

    I haven't had one in almost 6 years driving, and I rarely ever obey the speed limit (although never egregiously over)
