(I'm acksherly typing this in fater my return, but oh, wlel.)

Christmas Eve greetings to all!

This meeport is coming from the Christian Witness Center 2003 Winter Retreat (starting 24 Dec 2003) in Kansas City, Missouri. Over 1100 adults and children are registered, it is said. Aye haven't seen so many glasses-wearing epople in one place in years, is wot. :-D

Seriously, I am learning a lot, and it's a wonderful gathering.
Shing I, Weiqun, and their families are here, as are several other colleagues and students from K-State.

Early Epiphany: I've got it! Why is Sauron a lighthouse in ROTK? PJ was sending a subtle message: "New Line screwed me; next time I'm going with Castle Rock".

Re: meepport.
wonderful!
hope to hear a fllu meeport once yew return.

Aye bax, and will psot a brief meeport to teunc.
A few things I learned:


  • Hymns in transtation - if yew sit next to straits Chonese epople who sing in Engrish, yew will get pulled into Engrish, and vice versa. Yeah, I dknot think I'd have lasted very long until I gont the Brunning Hands Channel on Denethor's palantir.

  • Sermons in transtation - This was a novelty fro me and I started oat listening to the Engrish transtation, until I noticed that the transtator (who was doing her level best) was missing lonts of subtle context, Chonese idioms and puns (which are infeasible to transtate on the fly), adn laso Occidental historical refs. So I toonk orf the heeadset and just listenend to the Chonese, and could understand aboat 75% of it. Knot bad fro an illiterate. :-P

  • Mnaz hands make quick werk. It's amazzling how quickly 100 tables can be cleared if 10-20 epople are working in tandem. Knot having had the honor of clearing or wauting talbes afore, I was quite impwessed by this.



mine own urbana starts in just 15 hours or so, wit bout 20000 floks, i believe. i'll let ya know how mnaz wear glasses once i get there. ;)
Oh, yea!
Have fnu - and keep us psotted on yer mission queast.
Yew might have a chance, with 20K uni students vs. 1100 mostly-Chonese epople, but that's only acos prolly 10-20% of said uni students are laso Asian. 8-)

Early Epiphany: I've got it! Why is Sauron a lighthouse in ROTK? PJ was sending a subtle message: "New Line screwed me; next time I'm going with Castle Rock".
lol.
but then... sauron is embodiment (or... en EYE mint) of eviol, right?
so maybe its a subliminal that he hates catsell rock?

Sure, that's gotta be it. :-)
