My new iPod has a video camera, so I got the idea to make use of it and do a vlog. (Video-blog, in case you didn't know.)
Hopefully y'all can understand me...I really do mumble, I think. Either most people have gotten used to the way I talk, or they don't care if they miss an occasional word, but I'm surprised I don't get more people asking me "What??" when I talk to them. I feel rather sorry for them. Or maybe I'm the one who can't hear very well so I think I'm hard to understand. Who knows. I know I have several friends whom I have a hard time hearing sometimes. Somehow I think that's usually from an inability to block out ambient noise, rather than from deafness, because I feel like I can hear most things quite well. If I'm in a crowd of people however, it's very hard to hear just one person clearly.
Note: you have to click through to YouTube to see the video, since I turned off the embedding feature.
When I was helping my grandparents with their books, I was looking at all the piles and piles of old hardcover books, and got a sudden picture of where my book collection is headed. :D With the difference being that my books are mostly classic fiction, while my grandpa has old religion/theology books. And lexicons. I don't know how many Greek lexicons one person really needs, but he feels the need to have about, oh, at least twelve! Plus three sets of Bible commentaries (big long sets), and several 2-3 volume commentaries as well. We didn't get rid of those. I carried them all back and put them back on the bookshelves.
So, that's that.
Incidentally, my camera seems to make odd ringing noises, because I hear them in the background, but there was nothing else that could be making that noise. Very strange.
