Genius

During a math workshop, I learned a couple of facts about Albert Einstein. 
1.  He was divorced.
2.  He had developmental problems and language delays.

My curiosity was piqued with these newly attained tidbits, so I went to the library.  I believe in books you know. 

I checked out a big fat biography on Einstein. I’m going to lap it up and then bore you with my knowledge of relativity and quantum theory (as soon as I find out what that is).

Then I’ll use big words like antidisestablishmentarianism.
Maybe I’ll hang his portrait in my house.

Just you wait.

Remember that cute little romantic comedy called I.Q.?  Walter Mathau, Tim Robbins and Meg Ryan……great movie.  Walter Mathau plays Einstein.  Go rent it if you haven’t seen it.  It’s delightful.

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.”

Guess who said that.

Tonight I conclude Day #13 in a 21 day partial fast known as the Daniel Fast.  We’re doing it in my church as a way of giving God our first:  the first 21 days of 2010.
It’s been a tough day.  I am craving peanut butter and chocolate.  I plan on blogging about it when it is completely over.  And I’ve decided I look pretty good in sackcloth.

“I’m tired of apples.  Give me pound cake!”

Guess who said that.
