Just in from a late Mass. For all my whining yesterday, today was a far better day, for me. The plumbing worked like the docs say it ought to work, I sat at the computer and got a lot of typing done, and didn't waste hardly any time to speak of: I feel like I have justified my existence for the day, and I needed that. Yay for male neuroses.

I finished my section on noting the songs in the book of Revelation as a precedent for having songs that can convey apocalyptic content, which is what I'm arguing in my Apocalyptic Literature paper is the case with the Odes of Solomon, and I'm well into my examination of the apocalyptic content of the Odes themselves, although I think I'll be a touch short of finishing tonight. If I'm not exhausted tomorrow after Nouvelle théologie and the Augustine seminar, I think I can knock if off then.

Looking ahead to the new apartment, I'll have to replace 195 inches of built-in shelving here that I'll lose for my books, and probably double that to absorb the numbers piled up on the tables and chairs, and to be able to shelve all my old pulp Star Trek and Star Wars novels, which are currently packed and buried. I think I've found some solid-wood shelves at IKEA (Leksvik is the name of the style) that will work. I'd like to not get particleboard shelves that will eventually begin to sag, but rather the real thing. My new apartment is currently my favourite fantasy.
