Bible study is tonight and I'm excited. This series is about Christianity and postmodernism, and each study will be inspired by a movie. Last week was Reality Bites, one of my favorites. The header of the outline was one of Ethan Hawke's lines: "There's no point to any of this. It's all just a random lottery of meaningless tragedy and a series of near escapes." Tonight we're going to look at Saving Private Ryan. It's been a long time since I went to an intellectual-type study. I like it. Oh, and the girl who got mad at me for not making her a bridesmaid will be there. I've totally ignored her message, so there could be violence on her part. :P Yet another reason why I'm glad Evan is going with me. Of course, she's so unpredictable that she may have forgotten all about it. Who knows. I wish I could force that girl into counseling.

Something funny and random: A guy who used to be in RUF with us, when in high school, signed people's yearbooks with a verse reference. Since he went to a Christian high school, it was a popular thing to do. Well, when people looked it up, I Samuel 24:3, it read "He came to the sheep pens along the way; a cave was there, and Saul went in to relieve himself." This guy is a youth pastor now, by the way. LOL. Ryan just sent me an e-mail that said "Don't forget I Samuel 24:3," so that's why I thought of it.

Does anyone know how to make your entry icons show up in the Generator style? I've seen it done, I just don't know how to do it.

Y'know I have an anecdote about Ethan Hawke and Reality Bites. :) Ten years ago I was working as a security gaurd at the Fox Animation Studio here in Phoenix, while they were making "Anastasia." A VERY high-up of Fox at the time was hitting on me full force - and he was a guy 20 years older than me. He told me I looked just like Ethan from R.B., and brought me a still pic of the movie featuring him - and damn, at the time, I really *DID* look just like him! (I even showed my angry and cynical and anti-Chris brother the pic and even he was floored). I turned down his advances politely and worked there another year, but talk about awkward!!!! And damn my advancing age for robbing me of me Ethanicity! :)

Ethanicity...LOL. That's funny!

A lot of people say I look just like Darlene from Roseanne.

THat never occured to me, really...but your resemblance to that Da Vinci gal is supremely uncanny! How cool is it to look like classic art? :)

That sounds like a great Bible study. I'd love to do something like that. *mental note to tell Pastor* That girl sounds just like someone I know...she can do something totally annoying and then you confront her about it or even if you don't...then she just flakes out like she has no idea it ever even happened. :P

1. It is/was YOUR wedding, therefore the bridesmaids are/were YOUR choice. It's her problem now.

2. Yearbook verses: Yeah, I did that at my school, during the last few years. First it was Hebrews 11:1 and 3, then 1 Peter 4:16. (It had become my life verse.) Sometimes even this one non-Christian guy would put them in when he signed books. As for why he picked 1 Sam 24:3, all I can say is -- he is a guy, so who really knows? *ROFL*

Hee hee, fun post.

Wouldn't it be fun to go to a Bible study together?! That would be the coolest!
