Gideon's kookoo son

Captain's Log, Stardate 01.23.2006

Bible in 90 days: day 15. Reading Judges. Gideon just died. Boy, his son made all kinds of trouble. This boy needed serious psychiatric attention.

The Israelites must have been completely floored by all the foreign gods in Canaan. It was like an addiction they struggled with. They couldn't stay away no matter how mad they made the Lord. As soon as a judge died--"Ooh! Let's go dance around an Asherah pole. We'll peeve God and He'll send the Something-ites to conquer us, but then we can just whine to Him and He'll send a judge to rescue us."

Writing: Um...working on my synopsis right now. I had a bazillion Genesis emails to answer.

Diet: Went to PT, then ate leftover gnocchi (700?). Tonight, we'll have hamburger stroganoff over brown rice with steamed broccoli.
