How I just asked my coworkers if I could use their scanner.
It goes without saying that I am continually surprised when people don’t invite me to things.
I dread those appointments enough as it is, and that’s without some lunatic in a white sweatshirt with puppies printed on it shoving a pamphlet in my face and yelling “DON’T DO IT!” Don’t do what exactly, other than worry that this tunic apparently makes me look pregnant?
Finally, someone teaches me how … :P

I’m mostly fascinated by the law school at Oral Roberts and how a school be accredited even when its department chairs claim that Biblical law takes precedence over the American justice system:
"[Professor] Eidsmoe explained to me how the Coburn School of Law, in the years that Bachmann was there, wove Christianity into the legal curriculum. “Say we’re talking in criminal law, and we get to the subject of the insanity defense,” he said. “Well, Biblically speaking, is there such a thing as insanity and is it a defense for a crime? We might look back to King David when he’s captured by the Philistines and he starts frothing at the mouth, playing crazy and so on.” When Biblical law conflicted with American law, Eidsmoe said, O.R.U. students were generally taught that “the first thing you should try to do is work through legal means and political means to get it changed.”
Absolutely awesome, but in the Biblical sense of the word “awesome.” I am in awe.
