Musings at slightly after midnight

Should I go to Urbana 2006?

I like 1 & 2 Thessalonians. Reread them last night and the night before. My favorite book of the New Testament is 1 John, though. My favorite OT book is Habakkuk. I've got a thing for minor prophets.

I don't remember reading any novel by Isabel Allende in which I failed to find at least one explicit reference to (and/or instance of poking fun at) Gabriel García Márquez. I think my favorite reference is the allusion made to El coronel no tiene quien le escriba (in English, No one writes to the Colonel) in De amor y de sombra (a.k.a. Of Love and Shadows). It's my favorite because it made me laugh the hardest.
