My Only Hope for Ever Becoming a Musician

My roomate Matthew's dad sent him this video. It's really amazing -- funny, nerdy, and pretty all at the same time.

Youtube video

In fact, it was so great that by the time I had watched half of it I had gleaned from it a spiritual truth. Consider how our prayers are presented to God by Christ, aided by the Holy Spirit, in a similar way as this video, assisted by the editor, has been presented to us (of course, we aren't God. So much for analogies).


  1. HAHA!! That's pretty funny!
    *wistful sigh* Only 24 hours, maybe less!

  2. I like the video. And the analogy. What happens in 24 hours?

  3. Joben and Hope and Annie and the rest of the gang come home, of course! Shame on you for not knowing that.

    I only wish I'd come up with that video first. Brilliant.

  4. Dear Heather, if no one told Caroline when we were coming home, how can she be expected to know it?
    But yes indeed, I'm already frenetically writing parts of books that I probably won't finish for at least a decade. My vocabulary hasn't degenerated yet, though.

  5. Aw, that's too bad. I'm leaving town early tomorrow morning. Looks like I'll miss you.

  6. Don't you "Dear Heather" me, young man! I did so tell Caroline you were coming home, and it is therefore her fault for not knowing what was going to happen in 24 hours!

  7. Oh dear. Heather, I won't call you that anymore if you don't want me to.
    Aww, that is too bad, Caroline. We could have..well...emailed, like in the good old days when we lived close to each other.

  8. I didn't mean it, Joben! I was fully kidding. After all, we're practically related, seeing as I live with your family and everything. You're coming home tonight!!!

  9. Joy!!!!!!!!!! Bliss!!!!!!!!!!! Happiness!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. *sigh* It's true. I wish I got to see you more often, but I supposed I'll just have to be happy for those who do. *Chloeface*

  11. Hmhm, no hard feelings Heather!

    At least, Caroline, however sad things may be, my vocabulary is being advanced by it.

    Query: What's a Chloeface look like?

  12. The Chloeface is an expression peculiar to one Chloe O'Brian, who you can investigate further here:

  13. Oh. Now I feel even more sorry for you.


A soft answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.
The tongue of the wise commends knowledge,
but the mouths of fools pour out folly.
