My probable fall textbooks!
Introduction to Hebrew Bible
History of Christianity II
Bibliophilia has no known cure except extreme poverty and even that will just slow the infected down not terminate their behavior.
Dont waste your $$ on that intro to the Hebrew Bible...I got one of them...It just says...
"Welcome to the Hebrew Bible. If you plan on reading this, it would be helpful to be able to read Hebrew. If you cant, you are
peh'resh minnay' pega' "
Aw, it looks like Susannah's not using the Reading Biblical Narratives book she used in our class. That's a great book. I have the Life in Biblical Israel book and the Old Testament Parallels book, which I'd flat out give you with a right to borrow if I need them. And I've got the Story of Christianity 2 and The Word Made Flesh books that I'd just flat out give you. If you don't mind mark ups, that is. Can totally understand if you like nice clean copies, but if you'd like to rescue some books from the dust and cathair on my bookcase ...
The senior has spoken ...
Yes, the page is nothing but paper with black marks on it. Like any addict, however, even tho I know this intellectually, I just . . . can't . . . give it up. The first step, that my library has become unmanageable, is just that. It means I try to remanage it, not toss them on the bonfire of my vanities.
ER -- word verificiation is "cleanic." It's a new term for you packing up five boxes of books.
ahh, pickled quail eggs...the caviar of jarred poultry offerins...when mama Loney was weanin me oft the breast milk, she used to mash up those lil pickled delights into an old goat milkin glove and cut holes in the finger ends and I'd just go to town... course Ms. Werly, my 4th grade teacher would make her leave when recess got over.
Gourmand! You always gently squeeze them or cut them in half before you eat them. Same as with pickled Chicken eggs. I bet you nibble on your pickled pig's feet too. Gawd,Philistine!
Dr. Bill you remind me of my oldest son.
And I thought the things I was served at the dim sum place we went to for Sunday brunch were odd...
But I did enjoy the puffy, biscuit-y thing they gave me that had a whole crab claw poked into it so it looked like the rest of the crab was still in there valiantly trying to claw his way out. I didn't eat it because I don't eat sea bugs, but it reminded me of that scene in "Alien." I wanted to take it home to put on the mantle and use it to scare door-to-door Jesus salesmen, but I was vetoed. Alas.
Haven't had pigs' tootsies in a long time. Mebbe I'll pick up a jar this weekend. I recall liking them room temp, just opened. Once they go in the icebox, the juice goes all gelatinous. No thanky.
Eggs wrapped in meat, breaded and deep-fried? Yes, please! (Got some ranch dressing to go with it? Because fat wrapped in fat, deep-fried in fat is better when it's then dipped in fat.)
still can't believe you're in seminary! that's awesome dawg!
