sorely vexed

"Vexed. I'm sorely vexed,” said Commodus to his sister.

No, not really. That's just one of the lines in Gladiator that cracks me up. Don't know why I thought of it. Maybe Joaquin Phoenix (who's set to play Johnny Cash alongside Reese Witherspoon in this fall's Walk the Line.) was on the brain. Who knows?

I'm not vexed, but I am a little worried. Mike and Seth (Mike's best friend), are heading out to New Orleans to do some relief work this weekend. I wish I could go! I feel like I’ve invested so much energy in trying to pull things together in my own little world—getting a good job, planning a wedding, finding a place to live, attempting (and failing it seems) to maintain relationships with my friends and the church—that I’ve felt self-involved and small-minded. I would’ve liked to go, get away, and help somebody else. Maybe the Lord has something else in store. And please Lord, keep them safe.

Apparently, there are Narnia Events going on all over the country that are movie "sneek peeks". I just found some information at Narnia Resources
