Learning a friend’s last name is good, remembering it is even better!

I’m going to OKC today to visit my eye doctor and go clothes shopping with my parents. I like shopping (I prefer doing it alone), but clothes are incredibly expensive, making every purchase an incredulous one. My eyes have gradually gotten better over the past seven years, and I would eventually like to get laser surgery if it’s financially possible. I was told that laser surgery isn’t always permanent, however.

The weekend was pretty typical. The only thing worth mentioning is that I ate with Aaron Saturday night at Papa Giorgio’s and watched Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind in his apartment. Oh wow, that sounds like a date and not a half bad one. That Aaron is shady! After reflecting on it, I think the end of the movie is a very bitter one, indeed. Joel (Jim Carrey) and Clementine (Kate Winslet) are exactly where they were at the beginning of the movie, making me suspect that it was a cycle of bitter-sweet relationships always ending with erased minds and unsuspecting new beginnings. It’s only a conjecture, though. It was worth the $10 I paid for it at Hastings as I will watch again.

It has been mentioned before, but I was thinking about it again on Saturday. Paul, the Apostle, was a very high ranking Pharisee. How was it that he was not married? He says that he is single a couple of time in the Epistles, but it isn’t something that makes sense given the context surrounding his life as Saul. I have often wondered if a marriage or divorce to a non-Christian Jew was the thorn in his side.
