To all you Husker fans...

Have you ever wondered WHY you like the Huskers? Read "The Napoleon of Notting Hill" (by Chesterton of course) to find out.

Dale Alquhist's talk was great! He went over the book "What's wrong with the World" and how it's still relevant to our lives today. He also included a lot of anecdotal Chesterton stories. We can have a discussion about the talk in the comments boxes.

Todays the Day!!! Whoopee!

Only 1 more day until Dale Alquhist's speech!

My worst nightmare: globs of goo rolling around and a skinny needle thing that says "one." The needle thing was the scary part, not the globs of goo.

Only THREE more days until Dale Alquhist's visit.

Three is the perfect number, being the number of the Trinity, the Triangle, and the meals of the day (except for hobbits and the English, and the Italians, that is. The hobbits have 6-7, the English have four, and the Italians have one. But the Italian meal lasts all day long.)

By the way, I will not be posting on numbers two and one. You'll have to use your imagination.

Only FOUR more days until the Student Union Auditorium is filled with people to hear about Chesterton...I hope.

Did you ever notice that the word Four has Four letters in it? Or that you can make a 4 from four sticks of equal length?

I don't know what Chesterton would say about the number four, but I bet it would be along the lines of

"Four men, and no women, are enough to form a club. For four is a crowd, and if there is a crowd, there is the possibility of speaking to nobody in particular, which is a necessary element of masculine conversation."

(If you don't understand that imaginary quote, you need to go read "What's Wrong with the World." And hurry. You have four days.)

Sorry, ladies, but I couldn't think of anything else Chestertonian relating to the number four.

Five Days Left Till Dale's Visit! Woo Hoo! Go Big...wait a minute...

Actually, red was Chesterton's favorite color.

And now for a Sesame Street Style presentation on the Number Five.
