Right now Gmail is telling me that I have 777 unread e-mails in my inbox.  Well, “unread” is a relative term, because a lot of those are e-mails I’ve opened, skimmed through, and then marked as unread because I intend to get back to them eventually (yeah, right).

Anyways, I’m blogging because 777 is one of the key, symbolic numbers of completeness in the Bible.  Ok, apparently I can find that number only once in the Bible, but I’m pretty sure it’s spelled out somewhere in Revelation, too.

But to me, 777 “unread” e-mails symbolizes my losing battle with keeping up with life.
