:: love ::

one of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “of all the commandments, which is the most important?”

“the most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘hear, o Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one. love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ the second is this: ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’ there is no commandment greater than these.”

mark 12:28-29

:: grandmother advice ::

cute project (despite many typos and grammatical errors!). this is one of my favs.



for some reason, it made me think of the last few years of my grandmother's life when she became a huge fan of TLC's what not to wear. far from a fashionista, maunga would watch the show and (very critically) judge the women & men who had agreed to have their wardrobes trashed and closets restocked. she also was quite opposed the style (or lack thereof) of hilary clinton and considered nominating mrs clinton for a spot on WNTW. so stinking funny.

:: random thoughts ::

- i wonder if the aol man ever gets tired of saying "welcome, you've got mail." i always have mail. it's a given.

- it really bothers me that we call a bathroom meant for both genders "unisex" because to me, that sounds like it's only for one sex. bi-sex or omni-sex bathrooms would be much more fitting. (and when i say that it "really bothers me" i mean for years. to the point where i have sounded like i don't know what they're called because i will try to avoid calling them that in conversation. it really, really bugs me. and this is the week i've chosen to admit it.)

- earlier this week a girl told me i look like someone who would be on the bachelor. i'm still processing that.

- i get upset when i see/hear people saying that obama is a muslim who claims to be a christian. i hate to think how i would feel if people hatefully, repeatedly and ignorantly doubted my profession of belief in Christ.

:: what's for dinner ::

last week i made shrimp tacos for dinner one night...and another night...and another. and then i made them again last night.

- thinly chopped red cabbage
- sauteed shrimp (cut in half): olive oil, lime juice, cayenne, black pepper
- sliced avocado
- whole wheat tortilla (i found some that i looove, but can't remember the name!)
