1. Inter-personal, -religious, -regional, -political conflicts seem to have taken a temporary backseat this week to (a) exhaustion (b) today's big grammar "midterm" and (c) the stomach flu. I'm not sure whether I'm happy about this or not (feel free to stop for a minute and reflect on the type of conflicts that may make the stomach flu seem like a good thing).
2. I love my church.
3. Turkish coffee is great, but American coffee is . . . homier. I love American coffee. I also love cheeseburgers, bacon, and ice cream. Er . . . thank you.
