Other Blogs to Consider

First of all, please do read and contribute to the St. Blog's Prayer Network. Besides the wedding plans taking up a lot of time, most of the email I've gotten for the site tends to be spam. You can change that. Read. Pray. Contribute.

I'd also like to plug my wife's blog. Politics (mostly conservative), current issues, whimsy, and a lot about Yours Truly, especially when I do something, like kiss her after eating kimchi, or calling her "my little iguana", or complain when she wants to coordinate the toilet paper with the rest of her bathroom scheme...

People, Look East...

Favorite Advent hymns:

1) "People, Look East" -- A lovely hymn with vivid and unique imagery, calling upon us in turn to make ready for the Savior's coming.

2) "O Come, Divine Messiah" -- I've always liked the melody to this French carol.

3) "Conditor Alme Siderum/Creator of the Stars of Night" -- This venerable hymn speaks of the need for the Savior, Christ's coming, and his impending return to judge us, all set to a haunting melody.

What are your favorite Advent hymns, and why?

Well, I'm Back....

It's been over two years since I've written on this site, but I believe it's about time I restart....

What have I been up to?

First of all, I'm now a married man. I met Amy Louise Seeger in the ComedySportz parking lot in September 2003. We fell in love, and on October 22, we wed. The extremely extensive planning and preparation for that event had taken up much of my time since Easter of '04, when we announced our engagement to our families.

I'd also fallen off blogging because of other personal concerns. My roommate, a person with lots of issues, became even more unmanageable. She screamed at me all the time, trashed the apartment, and flooded the apartment below when she tried to bleed a radiator on her own. She was duly thrown out, and Amy spent our first Valentine's Day cleaning up sixteen trash bags' worth of mess.

Following that, Amy had to have surgery for fibroid cysts. I spent the month of March at her house (she lived with her parents) help with her recuperation.

So it's been a long, strange trip since I've last blogged for myself....but here I am.
