Below you will see 3 columns (2 of which have some similar info, but take it in two different but related directions)…. They are part of the greatness that has been my last week. I had 3 papers (with a presentation on each) due successively this week. Tuesday I turned in and presented the paper of Gnosticism: Wednesday the paper on South Africa, and today the paper on John Wimber. Thats 3 papers, and 3 presentations in three days. That’s 60 pages of writing and close to 1000 pages of reading and research ( my bib for the last paper was just over 2 pages long (with a 10 inch font). Can you say that I am tired? I am not so tired as not to give me take on a few things from the last week;
***** Tim Kring, it is cool that you have not experienced the wonders of comics, but next time you have a big plot twist just ask one of the buddies about it. That way when the twist hits, half of your audience will not say “awww man, that’s already been done before in The Watchmen- and better possibly). I know its notplagarizing if you are not aware of another plotline before writing it, but shoot me line, I’ll let you know…
**** Last nights Lost was ho-hum for me…. but I did love the ending. Matt’s theory number540– they are in an alternate reality????? It would make sense of alot of things…. Locke’s legs were not messed up, Jin was not, you know, ‘shooting blanks.’ Charlie’s not a whiny cokehead (oh wait that stayed the same).
***** Was there anyone in CTU that didn’t think “you know what screw the VP, I’m going to trust that Jack will do the job right…. and then be there as a back-up just in case hell has frozen over and he fails.” But no you got to start a firefight that you have no way of controlling and no way of winning just to prove that you the man. Who’s running CTU, GW?
***** Now that school is over (for the time being), here’s my agenda for the summer: watch Sox beat Yankees, go to 2nd City’s Obama play, watch Spidey 3, watch Pirates 3, watch Oceans Thirteen, WATCH BOURNE 3, see good friend get married, catch Hot-as-a-mother monday at Heaven at Seven, oh and get a job!!!!! Good luck with that, huh??????
***** I will have to congratulate the media for not yet running the seemingly obligatory the-world-is-not-safe-run-for-your-life piece in response to VTU. I still have not figured out, how I feel about this?
***** I figure I have listened to easily 45 paper presentations this week: here are my awards, the names have been changed to protect the innocent:
Balls Awards- my boy that presented on paper on Palestine Christianity for ending with a plea to be more open to the plight of the Palenstinians and the need for both sides to come together and compromise. Whether in the dispensationist south or the evangelical land of Wheaton that took guts.
SayWhat Award– some guy turned in an 18 page paper with a 20 page appendix…. since when did you put appendices on term papers, is this allowed; cause I think I just found the way around my wordiness. “I know that you only wanted a 2 page review of that book, Mr Professor, sir; the other 20 pages are an appendix. Another thought— how did he have time to write a 20 page “appendix” I was just prasing God I had done enough to write an 18 page paper (with title page and biblography). I’m not so sure what I think about this eithet.
Presentation of the Week: My boy with the strong Barth and Pentecostalism review. It has passion, it had scholarship, it had a point (after listening to many that didn’t [mine included], I’m so thankful for that).
Yellow Streak Award: to the three people from last night that never volunteered to present and so managed to avoid giving one. You know who you are, you cowards…. OK, so I wish I had done that, but oh well.
ReStating the Oblivious Award: OK so there were no oblivious duhhh moments this week (like someone presenting a paper stating that Hitler had issues, or that education is good). Good job people, good job…
