You know what sucks?

First I have to say three beautiful things, though...
1) my prof's wicked sense of humor
2) buttery shrimp scampi with a nice sauvingnon blanc
3) praying with john, even though we've only managed it once in the new year

Ok, that mushy stuff is out of the way. Now I can get to what sucks!
Online greeting cards! Man, they are so stupid! And while I'm at it, the ones in the stores are pretty much crap also! We went to Target recently and just about every card in a humor section was about alcohol or farting. Seriously. Get a life, people.
Also what sucks is Greek. I hate to say it, but I'm pretty much in hate with the whole language right now and especially with having to translate when I don't know what I'm doing. Blech. It took 3 and a half HOURS to translate NINE VERSES today. That sucks.
Also I think my reading so far sucks. I want to read Omnivore's Dilemma, not a Galatians commentary. But by the time I'm done with all my reading for school I'm too tired to read another word. Yuck and suck. Omnivore is so great, too - I'm reading all about grass now, a much nicer plant than corn, one I would much rather make up part of my ecosystem and food chain.

OK, that's all I can really think of at the moment. So that wasn't too bad.

I get to lead class tomorrow. I'm very excited. They're mine, all mine! No prof for miles! Ha ha ha ha ha ha!! Should be wicked fun.

Are we talkin like 9 verses of John or 9 verses of Acts?

Either way, I feel ya on the Greek. There really are no shortcuts. I had to fail the class twice before I figured that out. Third time was the charm, but yeah, it took A LOT of work, and that was with all the right helps, too [a book for special vocabulary, a book that had all verbs parsed by verse, printouts of the verses in English from ESV translation on Biblegateway.com, beer, Handel's Messiah cd on repeat, etc.]

Have fun!
