Wisdom of Lawyers

Real happening---

Lawyer: "This myasthenia gravis -- does it affect your memory at all?"
Witness: "Yes."
Lawyer: "And in what ways does it affect your memory?"
Witness: "I forget."
Lawyer: "You forget. Can you give us an example of something that you've forgotten?"

That was kinda cool. It was also kinda cool to have my family have no idea what's going to happen. And then have me be able to know. Sweet.



So tonight (Sunday night) from 10-11 is the episode of the Cable TV show "Leverage" that I happened to be apart of. I'm going to watch it and see if I'm actually in it or not. My brother and I were asked to be apart of the extras crew for that particular episode. We weren't just audience or random crowd mind you, we were in fact in the orchestra that was performing the famous song, "Scheherezade" during part of the episode. So... first time I got to be on a real live TV show set and I might actually be on TV for millions of viewers!

Post to follow once I find out!


P.S. Then again... not so sure I want this ugly visage on cable TV. Oh well!

"Zip through traffic"

Is most CERTAINLY an oxy-moron.

Heck. Even oxy-moron is an oxy-moron. Go Greek.

Oxy = Sharp
Moros = Dull

Sharp-dull. What weirdo thought of this language known as English anyway?

English is the only language in which you can say, "Seat your seat in a seat." And it actually MAKES PERFECT SENSE.

What an age we live in.

Odd that... people comment on this blog quite a bit. But I rarely get a comment on the blog that actually matters in the long run. Can anyone give me a good reason why? I think it's just today's society. Who knows. It's still sad in my opinion. Because, this blog, it's fun, it's a nice update for those of you who don't see my often, but the other one, it's the one that truly matters. It's the one that will get us thinking, pondering, and hopefully drawing us closer to Him.

Just a thought...

I think I'm gonna die. My reputation is about to fly out the window. Lord save me.



I'm not sure how many of you know that I'm quite into photography. So I figured I'd share my picassa web album with you. If you like the pics please comment on Picassa! I'd love to hear your thoughts on any of them.



P.S. you can look at the other albums, that's just the one you might like the most. Happy looking!

No title. (Because I say so.)

If you're tired, if possible try to sleep.

If you're hungry, if possible try to eat something.

If you're thirsty, if possible try to drink something.

If you're happy, energetic, not hungry, not thirsty and just plain doing great?

Then for goodness sake share the wealth!!!!

Wherein you get confused....

For those of you who don’t know, I’ve got a couple/few years of Latin under my belt. So if you don’t like Latin don’t read this post. Or. If you’re interested please read and comment.

I was doing logic this morning at 7:00 (only God knows why). And my logic instructor is quite the nerdy fellow. He, of course, connects a lot of words with their Latin roots as is only understandable. You know Latin, you know the roots, you can get the definitions of words quicker. Ergo (which is Latin for “therefore”) I am used to him using general Latin roots to define his terms.

This morning he made a mistake. (Oops!)
He said, “This word comes from the Latin, sequor, meaning to follow.”

In my head I hear, “DINGDINGDINGDINGDING!!! ERROR IN TRANSLATION!!!!!” So I begin to ignore my poor instructor completely and begin trying to figure out what he just stated. As I’m sure you know, “to follow” is an infinitive. The most general form of a verb in Latin or English. You put the, “to” in front of the verb, it turns the verb into an infinitive. i.e. to go, to live, to drive.

In Latin the infinitive use is the most common. However, it is different in certain declensions. So if I wanted to say, “To love” I would say, “Amare”. If I wanted to say, “To walk” I would say, “Ambulare”. In a different declension the “to” infinitive suffix is, -ere as apposed to –are.

However, when my instructor said, “Sequor, meaning to follow.” I knew something wasn’t right. Sequor can’t be a “to” anything. Then I thought, “Well, could be he’s using classical Latin not ecclesiastical Latin.” So I went through in my mind the infinitive endings for classical Latin. And then I thought, “Nope. He’s just wrong.”

Finally I decided that according to the declension, the only alternatives were either, “Sequorere, sequorare, or insequor.” The last of the three making the most sense. Even though Latin is an odd language, and a dead one at that, the words themselves still make sense. “Sequorere” simply is hard to say at best. And to say, “Sequorare” you REALLY have to twist your tongue up. Which is quite awkward. So I decided I’d stick with, “Insequor”. The prefix in- being the infinitive form of the verb in this case. So then I googled (not an infinitive) an English to Latin translator online, looked up, “To follow” and guess what it said it was?

Happiness = being able to be happy and blessed when:
You have chicken pox
General illness
All at the same time.

Happiness also = being happy after all this is over. Which is now. It is all over.


Anywho, that's a little update. Very little update. Which I'll end with a joke. I think.

I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

Ug. That was bad.
