Verse of the Day

"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the LORD, "My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust." Psalm 91:1-2 (ESV)

For those wondering about Mormons I'll try to post later today when I have a little more time. We met last night and talked for about an hour. I mostly listened. They may come back in a couple of weeks.

Added:
Sorry, I thought I posted this but apparently I saved it as a draft. I'll still try to give more news later.

Well, I'm a little disappointed. I was enjoying the image of you in the bicycle basket.

Jenn Hacker said...

HA! I laughed so loud when I read that, my boss stuck his head out of his office to see what all the squawking was about!

Why are they coming back?

Lydia said...

Jenn, don't you get it? Everett is converting them! THat's why they're coming back. Why do I have to tell people over and over and over. My brother is a mormon missionary--wait, no, not that. He's a missionary to MORMONS. That's just part of who he is. Everett, glad to know they haven't caught you yet.

Becca said...

Yeah, one of these days they'll track him down and find him and immerse him in green jello while thwacking his head with golden tablets.

Jenn Hacker said...

Hey, I think I had a dream about that once.... no, wait.... that was something else....

LOL!

Jenn Hacker said...

Everett, do you ever feel that you and your blog are surrounded by crazy women?

Becca said...

Because if you did, you'd be correct!

Don Pardo, tell him what he wins!

Jenn Hacker said...

Maybe he doesn't post a lot because he's afraid to see what comments we'll write... LOL

Someone you know said...

Oh, and Everett - What does a Ranganathan button look like? And what is FRBRizing something?

someone you know said...

And did you know that there is someone with your first and last names who is active in the men's bowling league in Springdale, Arkansas? Google your name, and you'll see what I mean.

Yomama said...

I'm missing something here--I went back and re-read your entry, but there was nothing about a bicycle basket. Anyway, you can't be a Mormon missionary--you don't own any white shirts! And what is Ranganathan? Is that anything like Swaminathan? and what is FRBRizing?

yomama said...

And one more thing while I'm at it, I won't be home tonight. Sorry. I'm stranded in Nashville, with a bent key stuck in the ignition. I hate when that happens. Love you.

Jenn Hacker said...

Oh, no! How on earth did you bend the key? Is there a dealership nearby that can fix it? Ha ha, guess you and the fish will be stinkin' tonight! But seriously, I'm just glad you're okay. But...really... how did you get the key bent while it was in the ignition?

Jenn Hacker said...

And I'm still waiting to hear about the Mormons....

annalu alulu said...

it wasn'tin the ignition, it was in the trunk, and it happened hte same way it happened last time--she tried lifting the trunk by teh key. it's not a handle. she's way too much like me. anyway, we're glad, because we got to entertain her longer. i bent the key from a c shape to an s shape by sticking it through the hole in another key and getting some leverage (we both tried standing on it to fix it and were thankful that it didn't work for either of us). so that's how we got it straight enough to get it into the ignition and the car out of biglots parking lot. so it stayed in front of our apartment last night with the key still in teh ignition ('cause it's stuck there), and now she's just gotta get it home, where daddy can use his daddymagic on it

and mom, the basket was in teh comments, not the entry. the ocmments are the best part!

brother, i'm proud of you for listening to the mormons. very very. i had some friends in college who befriended the mormons on campus and went hiking with them, and they made some serious ground (pun intended).

i always mix up the mormon guy and pocahontas' boyfriend. just thought you'd like to know.

Becca said...

"Ha ha, guess you and the fish will be stinkin' tonight!"

I just had to point out that I love a good Ben Franklin joke, and shamefully, there are very few.

Everett said...

There is not bicycle basket in the world up to that task. They'd have to tow a little trailer behind them.

As it happens I do have a short sleeve white button up shirt but I can't wear a tie with it because the collar's too small. Actually I could wear a tie but I couldn't breathe and I'm prejudiced toward breathing (and comfort) over ties.

Way to call it on the Franklin quote but I'm mystified, yea, spiflocated by the green jello bit.

For FRBR and Ranganathan that's library stuff that you can probably find out more by googling either term, or reading the blog that you already saw a Google link to, than you would by reading my blog. But in the interest of the lazy and indifferent, and of my own development I'll post about it around lunchtime.

Finally the Arkansan bowler is an imposter though he would likely say the same about the Illinoisan Library Tech.

Becca said...

There is a huge Mormon community in Arizona--I believe the temple in Mesa is larger than the one in SLC--so I know quite a few through work. I'm not sure about the green jello myself; I only know that if a team has a potluck, and one of the team members is Mormon, that team member is bringing green jello with something suspended in it. Fruit, vegetables, marshmallows, tiny Books of Mormon--doesn't matter, that's their dish.

And I decided to do some research on those two items above. I found that a Ranganathan button looks like this, and that FRBRizing is when you use that freshening product by Proctor and Gamble to eliminate odor in your library carpet. Only the carpet; it's not recommended to spray the books themselves, for some reason.

Jenn Hacker said...

Yep, Beck's working from home today! Too funny there, girl!

Becca said...

Ah, let me guess--posting every ten minutes is the dead giveaway that I'm working from home and trolling around, huh?

I'll have to work on being less transparent. I've been caught! I'm sure I can dig up some documentation to do....

Anonymous said...

Actually, it was more like 30 minutes apart. But still....

Everett said...

I think I'm going to have to stop saying I'll post at x time. I never do. It's making me feel dishonest. I'll change that to a generic "later".
