Christmas Eve, 7am

I started snoring around 6am this morning, so my better half lets me know via her own version of morse code (which is actually her own series of nudges, pokes, and kicks). I decided that getting up and starting my day might be a wise use of my time, so at 6:30 I'm headed towards Tom Thumb to pick up some sweet potatoes and other items. On the way home, I came across a song I hadn't heard in quite awhile.

Let There Be Peace On Earth
Let There Be Peace on Earth and let it begin with me. Let There Be Peace on Earth, the peace that was meant to be! With God as our Father, brothers all are we. Let me walk with my brother in perfect harmony.
Let peace begin with me. Let this be the moment now. With ev'ry breath I take, let this be my solemn vow; To take each moment and live each moment in peace eternally! Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me!
Written by Sy Miller and Bill Jackson
Merry Christmas to us all!

Just a quick note . . .

I had a pretty good update I started hacking out in MS Word at the beginning of the week; it had the makings of a first class rant (my ranting does get raves, I'm told). Anyhow, I got twisted up in my logic and ended up losing the head of steam I had carefully built up. It's saved, and will make an appearance at some point. Unfortunately it won't be the stream of consciousness work that I was hoping for.

Kudos to edieraye for reminding me of a wonderful memory from a few years back.

Take care, and if I don't post before we celebrate the birth of our Saviour, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

Some Sound Advice

If you come to work on Monday, and your emailed word of the day is Eviscerate: turn around and go home. Things will only get worse.

It's done!

I had my last class of the semester last night and submitted what is easily the most difficult paper I've ever written. It was 20 page body, 5 pages of references, and two appendices. I realize many of you out there have done more, but throw in a theoretical perspective that I wasn't completely familiar with, only two interviews (when I would have preferred 10-15) and the need to get as close to 20 pages as possible, it was a task. I had a ten pager that was submitted earlier for another class, but that one did seem a bit easy by comparison. I did learn a few things this time around:

Literature Reviews are a wonderful way to occupy space without having to resort to blatant padding, and

APA Style Helper, although is a little twitchy, makes handing your references a breeze.

Anyway, I can't completely relax until I get my grades, but I can say that I gave this one a good shot.

Now it's back to watching Good Eats reruns.
