Fomenting A Rebellion

“If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies, we are determined to foment a rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice or representation.” ::Abigail Adams

I can’t help myself. I love it when white people try to rap. It’s so … white.

Thug Christmas on

Happy Christmas!

If this doesn’t make my female readers happy, I don’t know what will.

Gerard Butler

It’s Gerard Butler. He’s Scottish, he sings, he’s SEXY, and he wasn’t driving when I was born. This means, of course, that he will love me for all time. But for now, he’s on the absolute top of my yes list. Mmmm.


I’ve Moved!

Yes, it’s true. My blog has moved to a new home, and I’m actually pretty good at keeping up with it.

Go here.

Hasta la vista!


A New Post! December 20, 2007

Filed under: school — ldgafford @ 11:18 am

A lot has happened in the past few weeks. Other than me not posting anything, that is. Here’s the rundown:

1) I went and presented a paper titled, “Rape as a Weapon of War in Rwanda and Sudan: A Christian Response?” at a conference sponsored by the Center for Ethics and Culture at the University of Notre Dame. Despite my nerves, the whole thing went really well and I had a great response to my paper. In fact, I think it’s going to turn into my Master’s thesis. It should be interesting, depressing, and exciting to finish. By the way, Notre Dame provides conference participants with tons of food and UNLIMITED Diet Coke. Take a lesson, Baylor!

2) I came back from said conference with a nasty case of strep throat. I’m sure breathing recycled airplane air for hours upon end didn’t help the situation. I can’t remember the last time I had a 101 degree fever. Gross.

3) I finished up my last semester of coursework(!). Semesters usually tend to go out with a bang, but this one just kind of fizzled out. I think it was a combination of the strep, exhaustion, and a general just not caring. Despite this, I managed to come away with good grades across the board. God does exist, and she’s merciful.

Now I’m just sitting back watching Scrubs and various movies, knitting (Christmas gifts and otherwise), and babysitting as much as possible because I’m poor and it’s the holidays. I should probably start working on my thesis soon, but I’m going to give myself a few days.

So to my readers, I hope your semesters or years are ending up well, and Happy Christmas to you!


Come Back to Texas … December 2, 2007

Filed under: random — ldgafford @ 10:03 pm

I have the “Come Back to Texas” song from Bowling for Soup stuck in my head right now. Why, you ask? Because I’ve spent the last three hours in the Cincinnati airport waiting for my continually delayed flight which probably won’t get me back into Waco until almost 5am. On top of that, I’m getting sick and I feel awful. It’s a good thing Delta gave us free Diet Coke and crackers, otherwise they may have had a situation on their hands.

I’ll post about the conference when I don’t feel so crappy. (It went really well, by the way).
