“A dangerously subtle message has arisen that says, 'If you are intolerant, then you aren't loving and thus how could you really be a Christian?' Desperately we do whatever we can in order not to offend someone. We are so afraid of being labelled intolerant in our convictions that we become wishy-washy, having no firm values at all.”
-Susan Yates, Character Matters.

Last night I went to Boyd's house warming. Not many people were there, but his Mum made terrific food and we danced a bit, so it was a good evening. They (his house mate and him) have a big flat screen tv, it's awesome! I told Jacinta that we'd have to invite ourselves over often to sit on their comfy couches and watch stuff on their big TV. Anyway, it was a good evening. Brittany is a fantastic dancer. She has all this cool styling going on. She makes me look like some kind of cross legged elephant.

Speaking of, I think I had too much chocolate over Easter. Or unhealthy food in general. I've been feeling a bit fat recently. It's probably all in my head... but gah! Stupid self conscience-ness!

Bitter Tea

Gah. I figure, essay to write, daylight savings has ended and it feels super late even though it's only 8, so I should make myself a pot of super strong tea. Little did I remember, super strong tea is bitter! bleh!

It's now time to get this bitch of an essay written damn it!

Edit 9:35pm: 438/750-1000 words down. Only half way through my second paragraph. Hurrah! Furthermore, this whole citation things is going well. :D

Edit 8:34am: I went to bed at 11pm, having completed 705/750-1000 words. I did this because I was on my second pot/seventh cup of tea and couldn't type properly any more. It took me three turns to "correctly" type in a quote, and even then when I checked it this morning, it was still wrong. Also, I was feeling very ill, like I wanted to throw up. All better this morning though! :D Moral of story: too much tea is definitely a bad thing. Stick with super-coffee to stay awake.
