We know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge makes arrogant, but love edifies.
1 Cor. 8:1
And thus Friday arrives, not with a bang or excitement but with a sputter and a lack of my absentee ballot. The first year I register to vote, and am passionate about voting for Christine Gregoire for governor, and the Postal Service does not even have the common decency to deliver my ballot. I must counteract Ian’s G.W.B. vote, too, although my vote for Kerry still cannot bring the apartment into a positive liberal index.
And time ticks by. I have begun waiting for Christmas actively by playing Christmas music loudly in the living room, making Happy Birthday, Jesus! Cake, and singing Christmas carols while I wash dishes. It is my belief that such actions may hurry Christmas and all its lovely connotations on its way.
