Romans 8:18 - Our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.
Matrix Revolutions opens on November 5th. *drools*
Anyone keen to watch on the 9th? Do SMS me.

If Doctor Seuss wrote the Matrix

I am the One and I am free.
The Oracle is fond of me.
I need that dude who makes the key.
You only dream that you are free,
Look all around -- causality:
It's in the wine, it's in the steak,
It's in this chocolate cake I bake.
See yonder blonde? She sure looks fine.
One bite of cake, and she'll be mine.
Then in the restroom where we're meeting,
You can guess what she'll be eating.
So, goodbye.
NEO: But I am free,
And he is not the boss of me!
He is a pig, she is a whore,
I've seen this scene twelve times before.
The tricks he's pulled, the lies he's said --
I'll shoot his werewolf in the head!
I'll fix him good for being sly;
I'll give you the key maker guy.
But first, a kiss to seal the deal;
Just make me feel that it's for real.
This bargain does have some appeal . . .
OK, a kiss, and now we're through.
I'm very cute, curvaceous too,
Is that the best that you can do?
It must be true, the things they say --
The tabloid stories that you're . . .
NEO: Hey!
Let's try again, you are a hottie.
Here's a kiss that's really naughty.
(Trinity will hate this night.
She'll bring it up each time we fight.)
PERSEPHONE: Now, that was better, way to go!
I feel a tingle, head to toe.
Let's have another.
TRINITY: Back off, ho!
Or taste a bullet from my gun.
Too bad you're with her, she's no fun.
Well, come with me, we won't get caught.
I'll let you in my secret spot:
A steamy, dark place down below,
A tunnel deep in my chateau.
MORPHEUS: Could this be symbolism?
Come through this door and take a peek.
This little guy is the locksmith geek.
I've got the keys to every lock.
I jingle-jangle when I walk!
And can you get me to the Source?
I have that key. Of course! Of course!
I'm on your side, just don't take me
Through airport gate security.

Television - a medium
so called because it is neither rare
nor well done
i'm just praying and seeking God's will regarding my posting. I still don't understand why i am in 1SIR, but i believe God has a purpose for me here (takes great faith for me just to day that). As i don't know God's purpose for me just yet, i'll just keep praying that i can be posted out, or downgraded, or excused outfield, uniform etc.
trust me: it isn't fun being here. i've been close to tears this past week as i think about my friends and family, and the "why am i here?" questions. pray that i can understand why God has me in this situation, and that i can trust Him wholeheartedly.
and pls send little SMSes when you think of me. they mean the world to me, they really do. =]
vaches de chier is proud to present the Downgrading Private Aaron campaign. We'll keep you posted.
