12 a.m. - 1 a.m.

My girlfriend, Megan, is convinced that premarital sex is wrong. Please write a persuasive letter convincing her she should change her mind. The letter should include no less than ten well thought out reasons to sleep with me, as well as some justification why your opinion matters. The letter should be emailed to me when completed for forwarding on to her.

Evening and morning, I will speak and declare.

Chris is scheduled to rise for Matins and contemplate a modern passage of writing appropriate for our times, suitable for inclusion in an illuminated Book of Hours. He may have pondered the matter previously, and use the time to compare final selections, or he may wait and use the time to discern his inspiration then and there. He will post his selection on this site, as well as any idea he may have on its treatment as an illumination.

8 a.m. - 9 a.m.

I will be flying to Hawaii (from Los Angeles-where I live) at 8 AM (PST).
I'd love it if Chris could give me a wake-up call, (collect, of course). I also hate flying, so while he has me on the phone, if he could give me some reassurance about how safe it is to fly, that would be great.

I'm married and have a child (2 1/2 years); if he wants to say "hi" to either of them, that will be fine.

9 a.m. - 10 a.m.

Chris will approach a female stranger, ask her if she has lipstick in her purse, and, if so, ask her to draw a shamrock on his forehead. If not, he will look for another woman to ask. He will then stumble away while singing a U2 song in a slurred voice. He may then wash the shamrock off if he desires.
