If you order something like bookends, and are overjoyed when they arrive, you just might be a geek.  :D  ;D

I got mine from the Amazon.com seller Office Quarters, who are selling them for $1.34 (see here, and scroll down a bit). Shipping is $5.73, so you can get them for about $7 total from that seller. Of you might be able to get a pair at Office Depot or a similar store for the same price (for example your local store might have this one or a similarly priced version).

Methinks Papist's avatar is super cool and should be awarded because of it. Maybe he could be declared as the "Pontifex Maximus of the OC.net" by Holy Synod of Moderators or something.

Why? Has he built some impressive bridges lately? ;)

Well, considering the facts that he seems not so enthusiastic with RC-EO ecumenism and that Tertullian is using that title in ironic way, yes. :p

I'm having car problems and I didn't want to risk my car breaking down tonight, but I had a bit of a problem... I'm almost out of soda. That's like a near death experience for me or something! So I did what any sane person would do: I ordered some food to be delivered. The minimum order the place required is only $6, so I thought about just ordering three 2 liters of soda, which would have covered the requirement. I just couldn't do it, though... how do you call an Italian restaurant and ask them to deliver three bottles of pop to you? :D I was wondering "what the hell's wrong with me?" just thinking about it.  8) They probably would have thought I was just too lazy to go to the store or something. Anyway, so they got some extra money out of me for some grub. Though I don't mind, they make good food.

My dog was very sick today. She is now doing better, though. Whew.  :)

Also, I've had an interview scheduled for every day this week (except Monday). Huzzah!  ;D

Why do they sell deoderant. body spray, and shampoo in pairs, but not toothbruses or packs of pork chops?
I had to re-answer this, because the other day some of us took our parish priest out to breakfast, and he made a big point of asking the waiter to verify that the menu item "pork chops and eggs" was indeed "CHOPS" (plural) and not "CHOP" (singular) - because he really wanted those TWO chops!  :laugh:

I see a tag below that says, "I like soup". On that note, I had some vegetarian chili for lunch today. I'm not liking it so much now. :p

There's nothing like walking through an intersection during a rain storm only to find the drainage grate on the other end of the crosswalk backed up and overflowing. :p

It's a norm in Poland.

I was looking through some of my things, and I found a nice CD of Romanian chant that I thought I'd lost. Hooray!  :angel: Nice for this time of year.

A happy birthday to you, Michał Kalina.

Yesterday was my baby brother's 50th. He told me he wasn't looking forward to it at all. I had no problem with that event eight years ago. I was able to triumphantly announce, "There! I've completed my first half century!".

Mine have felt pretty long when I think about all I have done and how are God has brought me.
Hmmm. Maybe I have not accomplished as much as I should have during my twenties. I turn 30 next April.

I got a job! I start next week.  ;D  I have been out of work for almost a year, so this certainly is a relief.

Thank you, Lord.

"According to eastern horoscope, the coming 2011 will be the Year of the White Rabbit. By astrologic forecasts, it will bring comfort, warmth and hospitality. It might be more complicated for those born in the Rooster Year and in the Rabbit Year," Lobsang Gyatso, a monk in the Golden Abode, told Interfax.
