Articles are up at The Foundation

I've recieved 3 articles for the Foundation so far. Two out of three of them are pro-war, which was kind of surprising. I didn't realize that many pro-war people read my blogozine. Check it out.
In other news Viktor and I got "Hip-Hip-horray"ed today by the residential group. It's kind of fun.

The best of the Blogs

Josh points his satirical arrows at Ablaze, the ELCA, and well pretty much everyone.
Clint has had a baby boy!
Scott talks about being Children of God
Lutherchik led worship.
Melancthon has a lovely idea for Christmas cards that stick to the meaning of Advent
I am a Christian talks about progressive Christians Books and contemplates if Bush is the anti-Christ
The Exile asks what made John Paul II "the Great" and takes a look at his own homosexuality
Samizdata shouts with joy that the Law Lords have decided information gained by torture isn’t admissable in the court of law
Oh, and The Foundation and Universal Bones are still in need of submissions!

And finally a joke from my parents:

Two Norwegian hunters from Minnesota got a pilot to fly them to Canada to hunt moose. They bagged six. As they started loading the plane for the return trip, the pilot said the plane could take only four moose.
The two lads objected strongly, "Last year we shot six and the pilot let us put them all on board and he had the same plane as yours."
Reluctantly, the pilot gave in and all six were loaded. However, even on full power, the little plane couldn't handle the load and went down a few moments after take-off.
Climbing out of the wreck one Norski asked the other, "Any idea where we are?"
"Yaaah I tink we's pretty close to where we crashed last year."

Greek and German

So today I started an ambitious project for this year. I intend to re-learn German (which is made easier as Jon is a foermer German instructor and Viktor is a native speaker) and teach myself Greek. I'm using "German Crash Course" by Schaum and "Learn Ancient Greek" by Peter Jones. So far I like Jone's work much better, in fact I'd recommend it, its really witty and I've already translated a pedophile pot (my name for them) which is a pot that men gave to their boy lovers. It reads Kalosopais" or "The boy is Handsome."
Other than that I'm reading Hesse's "Steppenwolf" and John R. W. Stott's "I believe in Preaching. I also got Christopher Hitchen's "Love, Poverty, and War."
Good times. Tonight we are holding our first RYPPERS meaning, hopefully it should be good.

I passed my Trampoline exams

So now I'm a certified Trampoline Coach! I have to say it was actually quite hard for me, as it was all about body movement and things that I almost never think about.
