God in the Machine

Literally "God in the machine", Deus Ex Machina originally referred to Greek plays, where the "gods" would be lowered onto the stage with ropes in order to provide a quick resolution to the story. Today, Deus Ex Machina refers to any improbably and/or overly convenient character or mechanism that comes out of nowhere and saves the character(s).

I feel horrible today.

The tooth that needs root canaling is constantly painful now, not just when it hits hot or cold. No sleep means I'm a zombie. A grumpy, irritable zombie, and those are the worst kind.

Presuming the pain and fatigue don't make me accidentally say something I mean in the sermon today (a sure way to lose a pastor's job!), there will be less blogging this afternoon and more silent whimpering.

Carry on without me!
