The Twitter version: MS Southern Baptist Ancient Medieval Biblical History Patristics Buff listens to Classical & Movie Music reading too many books btween movies and tv series.
The olde longe version:
The blog name refers neither to a snot-like substance nor a Hungarian delicacy, but rather the town I’ve spent much of my life in.
The site itself is going to reflect my fluttering butterfly nature. It will be primarily biblioblogging, but I am also interested in many other things, like movies, music, books, and–gasp!– politics.
My politics are somewhere to the right of Attila the Hun, so there’s the politics for you. Hope it holds you for a year or two.
I stay up late but I don’t sleep around, I wear my sunglasses night and day because I have transitioning glasses, and I try to obey the rule of threes. Thus I am either a Trinitarian or from Mars.
Oh yes, I am one of those weird people who watch DVDs with the commentaries on first viewing. In fact, I often rate DVDs by the commentaries rather than the actual film.
Is that enough useless trivia for you? Serves you right for reading past the first bad joke. There are a lot more where those came from. Fair warning.
