Break is slowly passing away…
March 3, 2006 § 2 Comments
I am in mourning today for my break, which has slowly disappeared without my even noticing. In three days I will be sitting in a classroom on the third floor of the Philosophy building, thinking about how hungry I am and hoping that Dr. Druart doesn’t go over time too long so that I can get to Mass on time. God help me to enjoy every moment of the next few days.
Mommy came across this article yesterday and emailed it to me. If this is a problem in Great Britain, who is to say that it isn’t happening over here with our fervor for (carcinogenic!) “health” drinks? But it seems to me that if someone had just sat down and written out the equation for what chemicals they were putting in those drinks that they would have seen…
I stayed up late last night to watch Apolo on the Jay Leno show (a filthy show, by the way; I remember now why I haven’t watched it since Apolo was on after the last Olympics). Apolo was such a darling and patiently answered all the same questions again. That guy is sooooo close to being Christian with all his talk about the great “Olympic spirit” – if only something could just spark his interest in Jesus. I think that will be my prayer this Lent.
Apolo was fantastic on Ellen this morning as well; she tried to get him to shave off his soul patch! Naturally he refused, but made a big joke of it. Sadly he didn’t breakdance as I’d hoped, but that’s okay. It’s nice just to see him before he disappears for another four years.
Speaking of Apolo, I want to know: why on earth do they keep showing this awful picture of him on tv? He is so scrawny it is definitely not hot. Instead they should be showing this one. Ah well. Just goes to show that society today has no aesthetic taste whatsoever.
Enough of this. I am not allowing myself to touch the chemistry or physics books today in the hopes that I will actually get some work done on my papers. I have three of them on my plate currently: (1) Ethics-an investigation of the issue of adoption of frozen embryos; (2) Theology – Messianic prophecies in Isaiah; (3) Metaphysics – in Aquinas, or parts of form and matter the same thing as accidents which follow upon form and matter? I always goof off so much with my sciences (EASY and FUN stuff!) and never actually work.
St. Thomas Aquinas, pray for us!
