A Prayer Request

Oh the Biblotarians are right. Atheists, in our time of need, turn to The Lord for help. So here in writing for everyone to see, is my Lady Hope story.

Tomorrow, we have our last test of the semester. Its not that hard of stuff, I just want one more day to study. So Im going to ask my faithful readers to say a prayer with me:

Dear Baby Jesus (its Christmas time, so pray to Baby Jesus). Dear Baby Jesus-- please let us get enough sleet and ice for school to be canceled tomorrow. ERV wants/needs one more day to study before her final. Granted, if school is canceled, shes probably going to sleep until 11, and then watch Oprah, and probably play on the internet the rest of the afternoon, and only start studying at 8 pm Monday night, but still. You owe her. The apartment has smelled like wet dog all afternoon. Amen.

I'll only pray for you if I can substitute my god, the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

CleveDan said...

Praying is one thing...but watching Oprah???? you better be watching just to research pseudoscience

ERV said...

Brett-- Dont be silly. Its December. Pray to a pie god. Possibly a hot chocolate god. Pfff 'spaghetti'. :P

Clevedan-- Of COURSE its for, um, research! Oprah, and 700 Club.

PRAY HARDER! A couple local colleges have canceled classes on Monday already. PRAY HARDER!!!!

Sure thing, Abbie. I'll pray my ass off for ya! Though of course I will bill your insurance company for my medical bills if my ass actually come off...

ERV said...

"TROOP A- OHP IS DISCOURAGING TRAFFIC. ROADS ARE RE-FREEZING AND ARE VERY HAZARDOUS. CONDITIONS ARE NOT GOING TO IMPROVE OVER NIGHT."

OMFG WOULD THEY JUST CANCEL SCHOOL SO I CAN RELAX???

*humph*

Tyler DiPietro said...

In addition, I will bring my psychic mind-controll powers into play to induce whoever's in charge to cancel school there. It should happen any minute now...

ERV said...

8:10, I swear to God Tyler, school was canceled for Monday:
The OU Norman, OU Health Sciences Center and OU-Tulsa campuses will be closed Monday, Dec. 10. The new time and location of Monday finals for OU's Norman campus will be posted by noon Wednesday, Dec. 12, when classrom scheduling has completed the re-scheduling process.

Hail Tyler, full of grace, The Lord is with thee. Blessed at thou among bloggers.

It was the psychic powers. I knew they'd come in handy some day.

Bill said...

So if I remember my student days, you'll sleep late, watch some TV, surf the Internet for a while and maybe do a light review around 8pm before going out for a couple of beers.

Hey, that's how I got through statistical mechanics, whatever that was.

Art said...

Oh, goodness, Abbie!

You have that exactly correct in the too-common Christian sense of praying for something like a killer sleet storm that may kill dozens, just to give you the advantage of another study day (which you'll probably waste, anyway). Just like Pat Robertson. Perfect!

You've proven that we atheists are not different from theists, except OUR payers get answered.

Interesting, because I was praying at least as hard as Tyler that you would have to go to class today. :P

Jack said...

How did you manage to get your prayer through all the football prayers on Sundays?

大力 said...

Abbie, it was the Invisible Pink Unicorn Who changed the weather because She saw in Her timeless eternity that I'd pray to Her today. I'll pray for your success around Christmas.

Bill, I never failed an exam at the Uni except in theoretical physics. Late congrats for passing sadistical mechanics, whatever that may be.

Thor, mighty god of the skies, carrier of Mjolnir the maker of hinds and lightning, please give erv what she needs to slack another day.

Selfish atheist. It is always all about you, isn't it? I've lost about three blackjack, have a blocked driveway, and branches down all over the place. I've got more cleanup than I have time to do it.

*shakes fist*

ERV said...

Holy crap! Its hell out there!!

All the trees in my neighborhood are down, or about to be down. Theres no way Im going to not lose power in the next 24 hours.

And Im getting my comeuppance, Art and carlson-- Arnie, Princess Pit Bull, wont go to the bathroom. Hes afraid of the ice. He just stands there, tail between his legs, shaking-- and then cries in the house cause he has to pee :(

Im going to have poop in my apartment soon...

Rev. BigDumbChimp said...

When this is over, remember I was the one praying for you to have to go to school and this whole mess would have been averted.

monado said...

What if you hold an umbrella over Arnie? or is there a garage or something you can take him to? Bathtub? basement? Newspapers?

ERV said...

The neighbor has some holly trees that blocked a lot of the ice, so the grass under them was *acceptable* for pooping.

Thank goodness!

LOL!
