7 Quick Takes Friday, Volume 27

My sister graduates from college tomorrow!
The one on the right.
Congratulations, Christiney!! I love you, I'm very proud of you, and I can't wait to see the changes you will make in the world!


This has been quite a week, so I'm going to cop out on this 7QT. Please forgive me.

My cousin and good friend told me on Thursday that she's frustrated that I haven't been writing as much lately because she has nothing to read at work... I'm frustrated, too. The plan is: cop out on these quick takes and then get back on track.

A Catholic friend of mine just started up his new blog. He is also a creative writing professor and an MFA-holding writer, so if you abandon me for his blog, I understand.

Fighting Words

Congrats to my brother in Christ!! Praise be to God for the clarity in his life for this next step toward his vocation!


The smell of gas fumes, the burn of rubber, the muffled sound of 160mph that still sounds like one clamoring note of dropped pots and pans for hours at a time.... yes folks, I did it. I went to my first NASCAR race.

I was going to write a post about it... but as my cousin pointed out, I have been slacking. Oy vey.

You-know-who's shirt.

I linked to this on Twitter this week, but I want the non-Tweeple to see it too.

Watch ONLY IF you are ready to let your jaw fall out of socket and to start drooling all over your keyboard.


This was the most fun Bright Maidens post week yet because we got to read all of YOUR posts addressing "Why Mary?"

Visit the Facebook page and read the note with all of the posts from those who participated.

You're not alone... I have not been writing much lately... must be that time of year! But only 3 days until I'm finished with my Master's!!!! YAAAAAY! Then maybe there will be a blog post from me every day....... yea, probably not.

I was just reading something on seeing God in the beauty of our natural surroundings, His creation... thanks for posting that video!

Bill Gonch said...

Hey E, thanks for the shout-out! I'll send readers your way, too. Once I have readers. . . ;)

Julie Robison said...

I DO know whose shirt that is... 10 points to Gryffindor!

I love that video. I've already sent it around in at least two e-mails.

I'm copping out too... but burned out is a better word. Let's see if I can read and write a lot this weekend and get back on track. And if your friend reeeeally needs something to read, tell her to explore your archives. Then Trista's, then mine. How splendid!

I have no idea who's shirt that is :( Love that Julie wrote, "10 points to Gryffindor!"

Congrats to your sister!

We've all been slacking!

Elizabeth said...

Liesl- YAY!!! Congratulations!!

Thanks, Ciska! Me too...

Homeboy- He has created some immense beauty in this world, hasn't He? I love to go hiking for that very reason, even though I'm not a huge fan of some of the critters/serpents He created.

You're welcome, Bill!

Julie ;) I told her! Burned out, yes, that's a better way to put it. The thing is, I have 20+ fleshed out ideas in my drafts box, I just need to polish them.

Trista- Yes you do ;)

Kevin said...

it's a really nice shirt...

Don't follow racing, but I'll take a stab ... Dale Jr.?

Marvelous video!

It must be the May doldrums ... I'm kinda scraping empty on the idea barrel myself. But then, I've put out more in the last three months than I did the three years before, so I don't feel that bad.
