Tardy to the Party
December 22, 2011
This post is very late today. I’m an irresponsible blogger. Mainly because I stayed up really late and my fingers were too lazy to type you a note.
I was up so late because some of my high school friends came over for dinner last night. And we got carried away with talking because now we are old and no one can tell us when to go to bed or when to be home. We had to make up for all those curfews of the past. It was so fun to catch up with friends, some of whom I hadn’t seen in years.
I’m about halfway through Catching Fire the second book in the Hunger Games series. I wish I had known they were such a quick read — I didn’t bring the third book to Minnesota with me. I’m in trouble.
The second night of Hanukkah was last night.
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight. Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine and champions at mixing drinks, who acquit the guilty for a bribe, but deny justice to the innocent. Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the LORD Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel. — Isaiah 5:20-24
Who put darkness for light and light for darkness.
OK, I’ve got to go. My dad and I are going to a Minnesota Gophers basketball game tonight — I’ve got to get ready to cheer on the team!
