Until I breathe the
So, I must say congratulations to William and Kate. Up here in St Andrews, those two hold a very special place in our hearts. Also, as it seems, they allowed for us all to have a day off and for most people to spend said day off getting absolutely plastered.
So here’re a few photos from today (and maybe one of two of bunnies).
What a fatty watty…
Evidently the wedding’s hymns were well received
Ah, the time honoured question: “What are you meant to do while watching the royal wedding?” Well for us, the answer was simple. Play with pipe cleaners. Duh.
After the wedding is over, it is time to toast everything.Which went down something like this:
Ladies and gentlemen, the Queen! *clink*
To William! *clink*
To Kate! *clink*
To the Monarchy! *clink*
The Colonies! *clink* Isn’t it the Commonwealth?
The Commonwealth! *clink*
To Britain! *clink*
To the children of Will and Kate, may they be many and consist of at least two males in case we need backups! *clink*
To the horses pulling the Royal Carriage! *clink* and…
TO THE CONSUMMATION…
… HUZZAH! *clink*
Pipe cleaners, the flag and people of an inebriated nature. Royal Wedding success!
“It is of my opinion that Longenecker, though he may have created an authentic spatiotemporal setting in which to place his protagonist, cannot be said to have created an authentic narrative if the characterisation of said protagonist is not authentic.”
Nice try, Wakeling.
I love how just before Christmas I had to write an essay on Isaiah 11:1-10, which was basically a peace of advent prophesy talking about the coming of the Messiah, the saviour of Israel and the Lord over all people.
And now the day after Easter, where we remember Jesus’ death and celebrate his resurrection and victory over said death, I’m gearing up for my biblical studies tutorial on the resurrection of Jesus (which means there’ll be lectures on it too :D).
You can chalk it up to well-planned modules if you really want to, but it’s still cooltastic.
“It has been brought to my attention that copies of Lost Letters from Pergamum bought from the bookshop here in St Andrews may be faulty- the last 30 or so pages may be missing. If you take the copy back to the bookshop, they will refund you.
If your copy is missing these final pages, I’m afraid you will have to use one of the library copies to finish the book- or borrow from a friend! But it is as well that you are alert to this possibility now.”
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHRIS!!
I hope my gift made it to you, it contains many life lessons I feel you need to know to survive in this crazy world. One day you will thanks me.
You are very cool. And very strange. And have odd flatulence from time to time. Also you smell a little funny, but that’s OK because you’re my big brother and I LAAAV YOU. Thank you for being hou man and, dare I say it, for being zhen de boss.
Enjoy this commemoration of the day you came out of our dear mummy-dearest. See you in about 40 days.
Miss you bro.
The Lord and I are in a shepherd-sheep relationship, and I am in a position of negative need.
He prostrates me in a green-belt grazing area, and conducts me into lateral proximity with a non-torrential aqueous accumulation.
He restores to original satisfaction levels my psychological makeup.
Notwithstanding the fact that I make ambulatory progress through the non-illuminated geological interstice of mortality, terror sensations shall not be manifest within me due to the proximity of omnipotence.
Your pastoral walking aid and quadruped-restraint module induce in me a pleasurific mood state.
You design and produce a nutrient-bearing support structure in the context of non-cooperative elements.
You enact a head-related folk ritual utilizing vegetable extracts, and my beverage container exhibits inadequate volumetric parameters.
Surely it must be an intrinsic non-deductible factor that your inter-relational, emphatic, and non-vengeful attributes will pursue me as their target focus for the duration of the current non-death period.
And I will possess tenant rights in the residential facility of the Lord on a permanently open-ended time basis.
Amen.” —Psalm 23, as written by an Academic
On the back of Gerd Theissen’s “The Shadow of the Galilean” (1987):
“This book is amazing. If you thought German academics were incapable of writing interesting material for the ordinary Christian, just try this.”
…makes everything right with life…. :D
“Well at least it is in the UK!”
2 Kings 4:30
But the child’s mother said, “As surely as the LORD lives and as you live, I will not leave you.” So he got up and followed her.
The proverbs of Solomon: A wise son brings joy to his father, but a foolish son grief to his mother.
Thank you mum.
That you’ve always been there for me,
Always been there for all of us.
Thank you mum.
That you’ve given so much up for us.
And for so little back.
Thank you mum.
That you love us so much.
Even when it doesn’t seem like it.
And even when we don’t really deserve it.
And I’m sorry mum.
That we can also bring so much grief to you.
That there are so many times
That we just don’t treat you with all the
That you (and Dad) deserve
More than anyone in the world
And thank you
I love you so much
And miss you
Isn’t she BEAUTIFUL? :)
coming here…already I guess and the daffodils are in bloom (well they were already but….whatever). The sun’s been shining today with a lovely breeze running through St Andrews and people are starting to slowly come back to Andrew Melville Hall to get some work done before terms continues in just over a week.
Oh and today as some simple fried rice :P
Houmous and Olive Sandwich and Tortellini with chicken fo’ dinner BOOYAH….also i never realised just how LONG THE WALK FROM MY HALL TO MORISSONS IS.
Then again my cheapness forbade me from buying stuff if Tescos which is much closer. This is because our Tescos is one of the most expensive in the country….RAWR
Also, today I learned the beauty of UHT milk. It may taste a little funky, but it keeps for all eternity and since it doesn’t have to be in the fridge until you open it people
won’t can’t steal your mighty stash…… :D
I have expanded my Empire to occupy a second locker in the kitchen!
…just pwned an olive and houmous sandwich….mmmm….healthtastic
