I am currently recording a food log, trying to figure out what i eat in a week, and what it all costs. I hope to find out whether it is financially a good idea to get a weekly weekly fruit & vege delivery from Yummy Tummy Organics, like David & Angela do.

At the end of the day lovely Chaffers New World, tenish minutes from my door, mark down their yummy filled rolls to around $1.50. They also have delicious Chicken Teriyaki sushi for 85c each (is it still sushi without fish? what are individual units of sushi called? is all fish sushi raw fish sushi? should sushi be Sushi?) and they include a dollop of wasabi, tiny bottlet of soy sauce, and shavings of fresh ginger.

Says Peter Leithart today:
Faith is not a knowledge, assent, and trust confined to one sector of life or one set of life experiences. It is the determination of ALL action by loyalty to Jesus.

One thing that never fails to make me happy is when i walk into the Italian bakery ten minutes walk from my house and the possibly Italian woman behind the counter reaches straight for one of their amazing $2 foccacias and sometimes it’s still a little warm.

YO Isaiah: tell Israel what their problem is! –
They are very pious in church, and they fast regularly
But when they get back home, they beat their slaves and
ignore the needy
Do I the Lord care that you reguarly attend the proper services when you ignore the hungry and oppress the poor?
Instead – THIS is how you should worship me: free the slaves, share your abundance, house the homeless in your own house. Then i will bless you like you want me to, and answer you when you pray. Then you will live in the garden of eden, and last for generations. If you make your worship services no longer lies, if you extend the Sabbath rest to those who need it most, THEN I will raise you up, and restore you to your former glory.

John S II told me today that Grant Lee Philips has a shiny new album out soon. You can listen to the first few tracks of it in full at his site [RealAudio required]. After one listen, they haven’t grabbed me. It will be interesting to see if they do.

My friends, I am pencilling in Friday, February 13 for a birthday celebration for me. My birthday was December 17, and i turned 24, but i was slack. I didn’t realise then that the International Year of Matthew was on the horizon. I aim to have dinner at The Jewel of Nepal in Newtown, and then head back to the flat in Oriental Bay for drinky-poos. Any objections?
