parting the red sea

These are sad times because my plants are dying. I entrusted them with a coworker during my time away. I’d had them four years or more. The chances of them reviving are about the same as that of some dude splitting a sea in two.

I’ve been watching 1950s epics with charleton Heston in them. Ben Hur was pretty cool. Must have had a huge budget for it’s time. I liked how it had the alternate viewpoint of history angle going, at least in the first part. It would’ve been better if they’d just had that bit where jesus is giving charleton some water, but then not crossed paths with the biblical stuff again. There was some good bits of scoring in the soundtrack too. Also pretty cool that Frank Thring got to be Pilate.

A little more cheesy was _The Ten Commandments_. This is probably the most memorable scene:

But I liked the bit where charleton had just come back down from talking with the burning bush.

Joshua: Whoa Moses, nice blow wave. Who did?

Moses: The Hand of God held the hair dryer that blew this wave.

Sephora: Sage.

I’m trying to start my masters thesis. I don’t know where the apostrophe should go there. And I don’t know where to start. 20,000 words is a lot.
