Impatiently waiting

It's just after 8:30am and it's almost time to pick huinatnaaq up at the airport. The suspense is killing me!! LoL I had my alarm set for 7:30am but ended up waking up on my own at 7:15am... that's the same time I'm SUPPOSED to get up for work, but somehow the snooze button keeps getting pushed until around 8am... not this morning let me tell you!! I'm really looking forward to meeting the crazy man from the north... though I don't know if he'll be able to handle these warm temperatures! It's currently only -3 degrees and expected to get up to +6 degrees! Of course it't not as warm at they were forecasting, but when are the weather people ever right?!

I just caught a commercial about the Mel Gibson movie, "Passion of the Christ" (or whatever it's called) and I'm kind of tempted to see it. There's no doubt in my mind that Jesus was a real person and even that he was able to perform miracles, however I don't feel that the way he's been portrayed over the centuries and the "propaganda" surrounding his teachings are quite ... accurate. *shrug* Besides, I am a religion major afterall... so if nothing else the movie could be educational. (I think one of my friends expressed similar thought a day or two ago)

LA la laaaa.... killing time.... doo dee doo.... half an hour to kill.

I'm not going. I'm waiting until it's on video. 7 day rental. And free. I'm not giving Mel any of my money?

Why?

Because satan "hovers" around the riled up, big nosed, stereotypical jewish people as they chant for jesus' death.

Because Jesus is blue eyed, has perfect teeth, and is white. So is Mary...actually anyone who's NOT Jewish is white and perfect, albeit a little dirty.

Because Roger Ebert said it was the most violent and gory movie he's ever seen. He's seen alot of movies, so that's saying something.

Because people are taking their young (4 and 6 year old children, in the case of one father) children so that they can see "how much he really suffered".

Because I've already been shot down by a few people online claiming that it's "the TRUTH", so it's good.

Because Mel Gibson, according to several priests, not only didn't film "the truth", the didn't film the "biblical truth". He changed things that are in the Bible to things that are myths!

Those are my personal reasons. Yech. From now on, when people ask me about this movie, my response will be "Jesus who??"<--(crossposted to Phaira's journal)

On another note: I hope you have a WONDERFUL time today! You are in my thoughts for a day that bring your all-too precious smile to your face. ;) *big hugs* Love you sweetie!
See, THIS is what I'm talking about, Bean. You just presented a kick-ass essay argument in this response post, one of the more powerful ones I've seen. :-) I'm telling you - you have a talent for non-fiction and argumentative essays.
