The sun was pretty low at this point, so I used my flashlight to help focus. I think it worked well. For some anyways. Others look awful, and thus you won't see them here.

The problem with mixed metaphors is not
primarily that two or more diff'rent
comparisons are being mixed, but that
the two comparisons are expected,
and so, dead. The power inherent in
a metaphor is this: the surprise found
when a song takes up its mat and walks out
of the house and makes its bed in your heart.
A mixed metaphor is better than one
that is dead - at least the surprise shocks you
out of expectancy and into thought:
the very thing that which is dead could not.

Tradition! As that old song goes; it is
well with me to conserve the old things we
sometimes forget to take along with us.
And thus, mo chara, am I writing in
pen, on a piece of paper, in a book
bound in leather, tied with a string, filled with
the ramblings of an unwillingly
post-modern mind, hopefully ripe for re-
volution and reform, by the Spirit,
and the freedom of His constraining will.

I will also send the disclaimer that I already have, or will be getting some of this for Christmas or my birthday (next Friday).
Remnant KIN Bracelet - ya'll have already heard my thoughts on this awesome project. Seriously - how do you not have this yet? This is one of those that I already have. Early Christmas presents for the wife and me.
Waskerd Wooden rings - I've written on these before, too. If I had the coin to drop on one I'd do it in a heartbeat.
A JRR Tolkien print - the first few lines from "A Elbereth! Gilthoniel!" I love Lord of the Rings and all Tolkien stuff. I also like prints and fancy writing.
Pull-up leather iPhone case/wallet. This is what my wife bought me for my birthday. I don't have this one yet, though. I've been rethinking my EDC philosophy, and I think this will allow me to carry more stuff (and more useful stuff), but more on that later. I really like pull-up leather - my Chippewa boots are pull-up, and they look awesome.
Joe Thorn's advice on setting up a Moleskine made me want to get another one.
ESV Journaling Bible. This is another trifecta of interests for me. The Bible, writing notes, and looking like a Moleskine. I've also been wanting to check out single column settings for the Bible (thanks a lot Alan - great blog, by the way).
So there you have it. This is the type of stuff that's been floating around my head lately. Send me an email if you want to buy me a birthday present. No, don't do that.
Oh, OK, you can, if you want to.
