Think about it. If you're Joseph that means you're the only one in your family capable of sinning. So anytime there's an argument and someone did something wrong, it's you. That's got to stink. A lot. Not saying Joseph necessarily had to apologize on all those occasions, but if on even half of them he did..well, it would kind of stink to be him.
On the other hand, I guess getting to share your life with a woman who doesn't screw up and a Kid who's the Savior of the human race doesn't rate too badly either. Maybe it just balances out, but it seems to have worked out well for him in the end.
After all, he is St. Joseph the Worker.

The Advisor refers to the guy who's teaching my Augustine class right now and who is the advisor for theology for probably a few people over half the current makeup of theology majors. He also taught my Modern Christianity class and is the same guy referred to as The Advisor regarding the Christmas Party.
The Chair is the chair of theology and hosted said Christmas party--he's been referred to as The Chair before.
The Historian is the professor teaching my western civilization class. She's pretty good.
The Theorist is the guy teaching my number theory class. He's the guy who walked 6 miles to get to UP on the snow day we had a long time ago, and so he's quite hardcore.

Moving on there is the exciting conclusion of the Catholic card set today with the "Intercession of the Saints" card. This basically says that your church incorporates the doctrine of intercession which means it's an acceptable practice for one to pray to saints that they might intercede on one's behalf. It's sort of a complex issue.
Lastly, if you're interested, tune into KDUP, the UP campus radio station, at 10:00-12:00. Some friends of mine are doing a show and I figured I'd help them by hyping it a bit. Not that I have some big massive readership. Since you probably can't get it on the actual radio, you can go here to find out how to listen online. Enjoy.
Time to go do my Linear Algebra and whatnot now. Good day and God bless!

Also, who'd have thought doing the reading for number theory would lead to better comprehension of the material?

L-Po: Please edit your blog to change "complements" to "compliments." We sent you to that big ol' University up there on that there bluff to get an edumacation ... now show us that you got some.
In other news, I think your family would love to test your game.
Changed the word spelling, and yeah, I think they would, too. As for showing you I've gotten some education, well, my plan for today is to go to breakfast in about twenty minutes, then do schoolwork (with general cleanliness stuck somewhere in) and mass at night. But aside from that I think I'm going to have to make schoolwork my only plan today. I got all my playing done earlier this weekend, so I don't have much choice.L-Po: P.S. Note the time stamp on my post. I feel so cool ... like a college student.
Holy snap, you're up late! Doing work mostly, I'm guessing? If not I guess your college student just rubbed off on you or something.
nana: somewhere in my family history there were some Hugenots (okay, so I can't spell) but i can't remember where. I think your Mom found them, okay found out about them.
i think you are wonderful.
Hey, cool beans. I'd be interested to see this...(Mom, do you know which Huguenots she'd be thinking of?) Huguenots would've been pretty far back in the history, it seems. Also, you're wonderful, too.
br>nana: i forgot to say i would love to play the game, but only if you want to test it out on an over the hill, not very bright about Church history, "older" (REALLY older) person.
Oh, that'd be just great, actually. Thing is the game's intended to be quasi-educational so if people can learn stuff about other denominations from it then I'm all for that. If it starts discussions about differences with other Christians that's also good.
An explanation about the new card element. How does this card fit in with a Lutheran set? It doesn't, officially. But Pietism began under Lutheranism. So, if you get the full Lutheran set, plus Pietism, it will be treated in scoring as if Lutheranism was a four-card set instead of a three-card set. At any rate I have only a few minutes left before I must depart for lunch and then back here to do some massive amounts of homework of the everything variety. First up I believe is an essay for History regarding the scientific revolution and my primary sources, although I don't at all expect that to be the first thing done; the first thing done is definitely going to be some sort of reading. Maybe even my history reading, but let's not get too optimistic. (Not that none of it's interesting; rather that it's so agonizingly long and drawn-out.)Good day and God bless!
