knowledge is power

[Lent 27] joy sadhana

Apples to Apples: Bible Edition tonight went well. My mom brought homemade chocolate chip cookies (undercooked per my preference, which conveniently is also the preference of my best friend and my housemate) and also the British chocolate my sister-in-law had sent (saving on shipping costs, she sent my chocolate along with the stuff for my mom, knowing my mom sees me in meatspace with some regularity).

Housemate made Real (loose-leaf) tea for my mom -- and demonstrated the trick Houseguest J does with tea bags. My dad would have loved it. Speaking of whom, there was a conversation during the game involving terminal velocity and dropping mice from great heights.

Allie, I thought of you when we had an angelology question.

I won: Dull, Fascinating, Evil
Someone [ed.: Ari] won "Sinful" with "Sin." (Tautological card is tautological. Semi-relatedly, I am possibly going to cull some of the redundant green cards -- e.g., Delicate/Fragile.)
Ari thinks she and eponis tied with 9 cards/each.

"Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you don't give up." --Anne Lamott
