Happy birthday to me!

In keeping with my longstanding tradition of throwing birthday parties for myself: today is my birthday! Happy birthday to me!


Here's a fun game: If you want to get me a gift, don't buy anything ... just copy the internet address from your browser and paste it into a comment. So, for example, you could put your favorite book from Amazon.com, or maybe your favorite video from YouTube. After you submit the comment, I'll put a picture of your gift at the bottom of this post.

Fun!

Happy birthday to me!

Happy Birthday, Matthew! :-)

I did get you a virtual present ... a book ... The Beauty Of The Infinite: The Aesthetics Of Christian Truth by David Bentley Hart

About the Hermeneutics link - I can't remember which it was :-(. But maybe it was one of these? ....
Biblical Hermeneutics by Holger Szesnat ... or ... Biblical Hermeneutics

This page at the NT Gateway has good links to Hermeneutics sites and articles - hope that helps.

Here's some Starcraft/Warcraft nerdiness for you. I dunno if this project will ever see the light of day, but just in case...

Happy Birthday sweetie. If you ever get bored with riding your bike to work, you can take this instead.

Happy Birthday! Seems like all the cool people are born in October.

Here is a good funny youtube clip. Okay, it is from cable TV, but since I don't have cable or a TV it is a youtube clip to me.

Happy B…yada, yada.

Kierkegaard's Fear and Trembling is a fascinating book that I think you might enjoy as much as I have.

I thought I'd give you another option for modes of transportation to get to work....

a genuine Taiwanese scooter. But not the one in that link, the one with this great saying...

Happy birthday, enjoy zipping to work on your new scooter!

Matthew said...
