Like A Young Woman…Hey!

This one is too good to pass up. Last night we were watching Jeopardy and one particular category was “Starts With A Body Part”. Or maybe it was “Begins With A Body Part”…it matters not. Some of the responses included SHINto, for an ancient Japanese religious, LEGacy, for something handed down. Then came the Daily Double, a video daily double and it was an image of hairy little rodent type critter and the description included the fact that its hair is 30 times softer than a human hair. The contestant thought for a moment, time running out and then in a last ditch attempt at a correct question asked, What is a TITmouse? And then immediately apologized. The correct response, of course, was CHINchilla. But, wow, we both got a hearty laugh out of it and I ended up with a nosebleed.

And why is called a nosebleed? If I cut my finger and it bleeds, it’s not a fingerbleed.

There’s gonna be an update in the next edition of the New American Bible. Scholars will be translating certain words to reflect newer meanings of them. “Booty”, so it’s no longer confused with a supple rear end, which I’m sure was the intended original meaning, will henceforth be known as “spoils of war”. “Virgin” will now be “young woman”. From what I hear these days on the news, how some schools hand out condoms to curtail teen pregnancy, maybe the two terms aren’t as synonymous as these scholars seem to think. Plus, Young Woman Mary just doesn’t trip nicely off the tongue. So that future generations will be saved the trouble to research the possibility of words having more than one meaning, (take gay–yes it also means happy and let’s not discount what foshizzle might come to mean one day–er, what does it mean today, again?!) the word “holocaust”, which has become inherently identifiable with the atrocities of World War II will now be known as “burnt offerings”. And “cereal”, I guess for similar reasons, that a younger generation won’t get confused (again eschewing any research) that changing “cereal” to “grain” is less confusing than thinking the fields were filled with Cap’n Crunch with Crunchberries.

And now on to the results of American Idol. Let’s see how our choices stacked up to the rest of America. The only thing I don’t understand is that I read, not that long ago, that they weren’t going to be so concerned about having even boy/girl sides, that it would be comprised of the ** best overall. I guess you can’t believe everything you read on the internet, except, of course, for what I tell you!

My  Boys:                            Ariel’s:

Jovany Barreto                  Jacob Lusk

James Durbin                   Casey Abrams

Scotty McCreery               Paul McDonald

Stefano Langone (w.c.)    Brett Lowenstern

Haley Reinhart and Lauren Alaina (my Katherine McPhee of this season, and that’s not a good thing)  was voted in among the Top 10. And Ashton is a wildcard, she wasn’t in either of our lists,which were exactly the same.  Stefano is a wildcard ( from my list…hooray) and Naima (from both our lists….oh it’s a happy day, otherwise I was gonna give them judges such a look) is a wild card, making The American Idol Season 10 Top 13.

    I had to chime in about the new edition of the Bible. “New editions” dilute the meaning of God’s Word. Let’s take “virgin” for example. The fact that Jesus is born of a “virgin” is the evidence that Jesus is God’s son. Jesus being born of a “young woman” discounts this fact! Jesus becomes just another man and therefore His purpose here on Earth is nullified! The Bible tells us that God provided the ultimate sacrifice for our sin…Jesus. Jesus came to take away the sin of the world; Jesus is God in the flesh….not just another man born of a “young woman”. God’s Word is not to be added to or anything deleted from. Changing “virgin” deletes the deity of Christ! Deuteronomy 12:32 Deuteronomy 4:2 Proverbs 30:6 Revelation 22:18-19
    We must remember, though, that Satan is ruler of this world. Colossians 1:13-15 Ephesians 2:2 John 12:31 2 Timothy 2:24-26 1 John 5:19
