I see you holding your grudges, I see you gunning them down...

I remember when it cost less that $20 to fill up my car with a tank of gas. Tonight, it cost $30.00...ouch.

On the upside, my class got let out early enough for me to get to the bookstore and buy a Blue Book for my exam Wednesday morning.

AND! Candy bars have been procured! One Snickers and one Take 5. Oh, the chocolate.


Plans for the evening:
- English Paper.

And along that vein, as a final note, I want to know what the original Bible said. Like...before King James threw out a bunch of stuff, and probably added a few details of his own. I'm sure it was horribly repetitive (at least the new testament...because it still is horribly repetitive). But it would be interesting, wouldn't it? Or am I just a geek?


[EDIT: Historically, most societies have allowed some form of polygamy. The West is a major exception. Europe and the United States have defined themselves as monogamous cultures. This was in part a Germanic cultural tradition, a requirement of Christianity (after the sixth century AD), and a mandate of Roman Law. However, Roman Law supported prostitution, concubinage, sex outside of marriage, homosexual sex, and sexual access to slaves. The Christian West formally banned these practices. (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marriages)

Those Romans sure knew how to have a good time. Besides...who needs polygamy when you have have prostitutes, concubines, and premarital (or extramarital) sex?]
