Me: okay, Past Me, wanna explain how we ended up in this state?

Past Me: oh ummm, I overstayed writing that thesis, which is now two days overdue.

Me: And?

Past Me : It was sixth such night in a row.

Me : And?

Past Me : When I finally couldn’t think anymore I went to sleep.

Past Me : Except I couldn’t fall asleep.

Past Me : So we ended up having delirium.

Past Me : Like shivers all over the body, due to the gusts of cold wind, except we were bundled in 5 blankets and objectivly aware that we are overheating.

Me: And now we have this all-consuming headache that threatens nausea whenever we so much rise the head 2 inches up.

Me: So. ..

Me: WELL DONE, PAST ME, I HOPE YOU ARE PROUD OF YOURSELF! !! LOOK AT THIS MESS…

Brain : *stumbles in slightly slurring* Heyyyyy, wanna hear plotline theories for the Han Solo movie???

Me: What the hell?

Brain : …The resistan-Rebelion! sends him to find labirynths because they are portals to the future - you can get visions through them…

Me: *groans *

Brain : …and young Han gets a vision of his death by his son’s hand.

Brain: he promptly claims he doesn’t remember what he saw, buuuut. ..

Brain : He really does! So he goes on living knowing his fate and trying to be cheery despite this.

Brain : Clever, huh?

Past Me : I’m so sorry.

Me: *deep sigh * I don’t care about Han Solo and his movie!!!

Me: * starts crying* I just want this headache to GO AWAY!!!

That sounds extreme :o take care of yourself! Also, consider writing fanfiction ;)


Feel free to use the ideas of my deranged brain. It was a sign of how delirius my brain got, because I’ve never cared about Han, least of all his solo movie.

just give credit to the Martin:

who so e'er draws forth this sword from this windshield becomes true monarch of all automobile-dom

fictionadventurer:

I’m becoming bored with the anti-feminization of fantasy novels. I’m all for heroines who take up a sword, or who chafe against the expectations of their society. But can’t we have more heroines who like dresses and housework and embroidery and family life? We don’t just need heroines who do stereotypically masculine things. Because that perpetuates the sexism–women are only welcome if they’re just like the boys. We also need to show that stereotypically feminine tasks and roles can be heroic.

To that end, here are some suggestions:

  • The princess who arranges her own marriage, because someone’s got to make the alliance to save this kingdom and it may as well be her. (Extra points: her parents want her to be a knight, but she runs away from home because she would rather get married).
  • A heroine who really, really loves babies and want to get married and start a family.
  • Women who love doing embroidery,and comparing patterns and making up new designs. And maybe they embroider a map or two for the adventure, because paper can tear and get wet, and that’s not a problem for fabric.
  • A woman who has to wear trousers for a portion of the adventure–and hates them. They might be slightly more convenient for running, but they’re uncomfortable, and her legs are too warm, and can’t she please get into skirts again?
  • Mothers as fantasy protagonists. Caring for their children while also dealing with the demands of the fantasy plot. Queens who negotiate treaties and care for the demands of the castle and then go back to spend time with their children. 
  • Women who don’t get married and aren’t pressured to get married, but have a happy, successful single life–working as a spinster or running a farm or having any other sort of successful business.
  • Fantasy societies that are built around the fact that women get pregnant and have children. Bringing your children to the meeting of the fellowship is totally okay! You can run the castle while your children play at your feet! Women aren’t trapped in the house caring for the babies because babies are welcome!

There are loads of interesting things that can happen if stories go beyond the tropes and include the reality of female life. (And if anyone knows of fantasy novels that include some of these things, please point me toward them).

The Spirit of the Lord Filled the Earth – A Homily for Pentecost

by-grace-of-god:

by-grace-of-god:

“In the great commission, the Lord said, 

Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age (Matt 28:19ff). He also said, I have come to cast a fire on the earth and How I wish the blaze were already ignited (Luke 12:49).

How is the Lord going to do this?

Perhaps a picture will help to illustrate. My parish church is dedicated to the Holy Spirit under the title Holy Comforter. Above the high altar is the following Latin inscription: Spiritus Domini, replevit orbem terrarum (The Spirit of the Lord, filled the orb of the earth). (See the photo above of our high altar.)

The walls of my parish Church answer the question. The clerestory walls are painted Spanish red, and upon this great canvas are also painted the stories of the lives of twenty saints, surrounding us like a great cloud of witnesses (cf Heb 12:1). (See also the video below.) Over the head of every saint is a tongue of fire.

This is how the Spirit of the Lord fills the earth. It is not via “magic fairy dust.” It is in the fiery transformation of every Christian going forth to bring warmth and light to a cold, dark world. This is how the Lord casts fire upon the earth. This is how the Spirit of the Lord fills the orb of the earth—in the lives of saints (and in your life)!

In the end, the great commission (Matt 28) is our first and most important job. No matter what else we do, we are supposed to do this. Parishes do not deserve to exist if they do not do this. As individual Christians, we are a disgrace and not worthy of the name if we fail to win souls for Jesus Christ. The Spirit of the Lord is going to fill the orb of the earth, but only through us. The spread of the Gospel has been placed in your hands. 

…Let the evangelization of the whole world begin with you.”

- Msgr. Charles Pope (Full homily)  

THIS is how the Spirit of the Lord fills the earth.
