Look, it’s a post! About things! A full hour and one minute before midnight on the day it’s supposed to go up! And even better, this story saved me from having to write about Putin again. (Even though, seriously — the Pope is going to meet with him in a few weeks. Wouldn’t you like to be a fly on that wall? Word is, he’s going to tie a rock around Putin’s neck and toss him in the Trevi Fountain.)
. . . now we have What Would I Say? — the app that sifts through your old Facebook statuses and comments, scrumbles them around, and makes them into new statuses which sound almost human, and almost just like you. A couple of my favorites from SomechopBot (“Somechop” is my Facebook name because never mind): “Benny has tucked her halfeaten apple inside my shirt and her hand in a bona fide theologian!” “Update he’s lost four new tires, and a...

Uh, I mean, uh, um, OHHHHH, how beautiful is the body of woman in all her mystery! Ovulation filmed in close-up for the first time (this is in 2008). BTW, this would totally be me, in the middle of having surgery to have my uterus removed, and still squeezing out another egg just in case, because you never, never know. I am so tired.

Enriquez Sports Complex in Zamboanga City.

People need to hear this more. Will Duquette (are you reading Will Duquette? You should be!) says It is true that the first stages of Eros are like shooting the rapids on a river: exciting and scary, and great fun, especially if you’re an adrenalin junky. But mature Eros is that like that same river, downstream: wide and deep, flowing strongly, deeply peaceful but in no way static or stagnant. Oh, yes: and sometimes there’s sex involved, and it gets... Read more
Great interview with Bonnie Engstrom of Ignitum Today is up today. An excerpt: You talk a lot about how you and Damien have grown and overcome a lot of the struggles you had early on in your marriage. Was here a specific turning point for you? A moment where you said, “Aha! So this is what God wants me to do/say/understand!” If so, when was that moment, and what precipitated it? No one specific moment, no. There were several “believe...

Ha- this is funny. Debbie Wasserman Schultz stumbles into the people-who-read-too-much mispronunciation of “misled”: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nw-Vuni0EYQ[/youtube] I recently ran into this myself, when I was recording my audiobook last weekend. It seems that I use kind of a lot of words that I am not 100% sure how to pronounce. (John Herried called this “Homeschooler’s Syndrome.” Oh lawsy, there she goes again, attacking homeschoolers!!!1!)
