busy weekend

O little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie!
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep the silent stars go by.
Yet in thy dark streets shineth the everlasting Light;
The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight.
-"O Little Town of Bethlehem" (Phillips Brooks)

Earlier this weekend I was feeling grinchy for not having participated in most anyone's holiday card polls and lo, I picked up my mail when I got home and it included one from pandorasboxes which filled me with ♥.

I'm feeling somewhat overwhelmed/inadequate. The idea of writing this Joyce paper, of writing an exam, when I have no thoughts; plus the cleaning I should do before I have visitors this holiday, plus etc.

Sunday

I woke up at like 5:45 or something -- or dreamed I did -- but went back to sleep and didn't end up getting up until about 9 (which means ~9hrs of sleep/night two nights in a row).

I also had weird dreams.  Collapse )

The Second Sunday of Advent

Today I went to service at St. James Episcopal.  I purposely included some Episcopal churches in my church-hopping during the Advent season because I actually enjoy high church stuff during Advent.  This morning, though, I found myself trying to recall what I had meant by that because I am so not Episcopalian.

In other news, according to LJ, the peoples I was thinking of purchasing paid LJ for for xmas: "These friends have paid accounts that aren't due to expire for a while."  Anyone know what LJ's definition of "a while" is?  I'll probably just make the purchases anyway, of course.
