muffins and the Newell lectures


I discovered my bank account is not as low as I thought it was. That means I get lunch today and tomorrow. Meals during the D.C. trip...? We will see. I may have to be very creative. For today, I am eating--and of course that merits muffins. And they had chocolate chocolate chip ones! I had something substantial to go along with them.

I had difficulty staying alert during the first hour of the lecture. It was held in our little chapel, which means we were sitting in pews, which means my back was hurting badly... Pain meds are good things, and I don't mind the staying awake side effects during the day! I really enjoyed the last two hours! Dennis kinlaw was the lecturer, and he will be back tomorrow. I will post a recap at some point. I am thinking a lot about how much I really do enjoy theology when I can understand the presentation... My greatest problem is my difficulty with ultra-academic language. I just don't think things have to be that hard~ I think it has to be possible to say the same thing in a way that doesn't require a super genius IQ to read it. I will say much more on this later. For now, I must be reading.

The white flour and sugar in those muffins you love so much don't help with this. (as one muffin-phile to another)

muffins vs. staying alert
That would be true if I had actually had muffins before going to lecture... However, I had whole grain cereal this morning. Muffins didn't happen until after lectures. My greatest alertness stealer is pain.

I don't like reading books or listening to lectures where words are used that I have to write down and use a thesaurus later to understand what they mean.
