My 7 things:
1. I am a big proponent of prayer and meditation. I read Compline from the Book of Common Prayer every night. I also pray Psalm 91, verses 1-4 and 9-12 for several of my beloved friends who are suffering from cancer and other serious illnesses. I invite anyone who reads this to read it with me at 10 pm CST each night and pray for your loved ones who are ill.
2. I love British comedy. I am currently enjoying the Vicar of Dibley Immaculate Collection, that I bought as a splurge from amazon.com. That Dawn French is a genius! I was watching an episode in an airport earlier this month, and not only did I laugh so hard that tears came out of my eyes, but people started coming over to see what I was watching.
3. My children provide my heart with most of the aerobic exercise I receive. The Preeteen Daughter especially has made my heart race a lot lately-- and not always in a good way.
4. I have read 7 books thus far this break: Starman Jones, (an old favorite) by Robert A. Heinlein, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, by J. K. Rowling, The Memory Keeper's Daughter, by Kim Edwards, How to See Yourself as You Really Are, by the Dalai Lama, Evil and the Justice of God, by N. T. Wright, The Bill of Wrongs, by Molly Ivins (God bless her), and Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen. I hope to read a book for every day of break.
5. I am a big sports fan. I love to watch football, baseball, and soccer, especially. I play softball and racquetball, and am going to promise myself to start walking and running again this year before I start influencing the tides more.
6. I enjoyed Rome and Weeds and Six Feet Under, but the really repetitively obscene language grates on me after a while, and I am no prude. Do people really talk like that all the time? Outside of fraternity houses, I mean? It just seems boring and indicative of a lack of imagination.
7. I cannot watch horror movies and even the CSI shows are too much for me. Although I have no moral qualms with it, I could never go see one of those exhibitions of preserved human bodies. The images stay in my head for years-- and I mean years. I foolishly went to see Se7en with my husband at the theater, and I have regretted that decision many times. Yuck.
