i like being able to post stuff based on my not-so extensive readings rather than random, “what i did today” journaly junk. I remember where and when i wrote the stuff, so it serves the same archival purpose for me…but i hope it’s a little less boring for you…or at least a nice change.
On that note, i was reading about the Schism for my Renaissance/Reformation class (the only i always post from, complaining about how bored i am?). This nugget was skimmed from our textbook:On the Anabaptist movement (those following ALL Christ’s commandments, and literally): [they] persuaded credulous women that it was impossible for them to be saved without sacrificing their virtue, for, they argued, the Lord said that only he who was willing to part with all he held most dear would enter into the kingdom of Heaven (Rice and Grafton, The Foundations of Early Modern Europe, 1460-1559, 167).
To further the “men are pigs” theme, i am going to tack on one of my father’s favourite sayings: “Rule number one when attempting to determine the motivation for male’s behaviour – men are pigs. Rule number two, if in doubt, see rule number one.” This is not a shot at anyone in particular, but sometimes it’s nice to be reminded of the simplest truths in life.
And, lastly, i have an article from the National Post on Monday that discusses the sexiness of various colours and what they connotate. Yes, i know, this is boring, but i don’t feel like writing it all out to mock; i would much rather engage in a more reader-interactive post based on the information in this article that might even be humourous: so, what’s your favourite colour? Mine is orange…wait, purple, no…orange. Yes, orange. I’ll come up with something that at least i’ll find amusing if you’ll humour me…so pls participate for kicks. If not, then you’re just a party-pooper. Hopefully, this will prove we are all pigs, not just those of us con phallis (masc.pl. abl. of accompaniment).
Why am i in a good mood? A Professor of mine told me i got the first A+ she has ever awarded on that film review of 19 fevrier 1839 i was posting about earlier this month. I might just post it for you all to bask in my glory when i have no new material…but i don’t think that will be very soon…the stickies on my desktop are overwhelming me with interesting topics to investigate. Where was all this creative energy when i had the time to devote my evenings to posting?
