1. Players, you must list some fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
2.
When you are tagged you need you write your own blog post containing your own middle name facts.
3.
At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged.

shouldn’t be anything to worry about since my middle name is only 3 letters. (and here are some feet, since it’s been going around lately.)

r – one righteous babe

actually, does self-righteous count? that’s more like it. “i should have thought postmen would be trained to recognize first class stamp houses.” hyacinth through and through, though i can’t say i particularly try.  in fact, you might say i try not to, but it can’t be helped.

a – anniversary

today was our monthly date. we had indian food at the bombay grill to commemorate another month of marital bliss. *sigh*

e – english standard version of the bible

i was waiting to buy this and discovered at the last minute that it was a verse-by-verse layout. what is the point of having an easy to read, single-column format if you are just going to break it up into random verses? and i had been waiting for so long. where’s a girl to find a decent bible these days?

and i will tag mackenzie (just to see if it brings her out of hibernation), kandi, and violet. i think you should show me your feet while you’re at it.

    Have you looked at the Literary Study Bible http://www.gnpcb.org/catalog/bibles#literary-study by ESV? It is in the single -column format. There is a 16 page brochure in PDF that you can download.

    randy,

    i checked it out and it has a nice open presentation. it’s a shame it’s only a hardback. why couldn’t they make a nice easy to read one like that in leather, maybe with no verses at all? i think god left them out on purpose anyways. you should know your way around your bible because you’ve been there a lot not because you can count. it would also force people to consider the books as wholes and take things in context more.

    if this came in the rsv or esv, it is the kind of bible i would like to grow old with.

    i can understand having some of your numerically amalgamated bibles laying around for practical purposes, but it would be fun to have one real bible to get to know and keep around for life.

    if you have any other ideas, let me know. maybe we could start some publisher harassment group. 🙂 i actually nagged cambridge press (in england) to reprint their single column rsv and finally the poor fellow just mailed me one he had sitting on his shelf. what a nice guy.

    oh, and if you think that should have solved my problem, it didn’t. i gave it to my husband for his birthday and he now counts my bibles as inferior. “you want me to use that?” “…yes, it’s the word of god too.”
