When a specific date is important, and when we can use a 24-hour clock, we prefer to designate that moment not as 1200 midnight, but rather as 0000 if we are referring to the beginning of a given day (or date), or 2400 if we are designating the end of a given day (or date).
The kids are good, but something is off about the game. I realize after a few minutes what it is: This is the quietest baseball game I've ever seen.. No trash talk. No cheering from the parents in the stands. Near silence, except for the occasional crack of the bat. It is eerie and peaceful and beautiful (p35).
And I must, absolutely must, stop self-GOogling. It's a horrible habit that I still haven't kicked in my biblical year. I found one blogger in Singapore who got my book for a birthday present, though he seemed more excited about another present, a T-shirt that read, "I'm looking for Treasure. Can I See Your CHest?" I've done image searches on myself, and found an outtake from an appearance on C-Span's Book TV... (p 151).
