just finished watching Passion of Christ which was a movie i had tossed in my netflix queue (add me: aubreykaye@hotmail.com, btw) eons ago and forgot about completely until i yoinked it out of the envelope. i tossed 120 things on my queue, you see, and forbid myself to look at it afterwards, so everything's a surprise. and boy was it.

not a bad movie, i would recommend seeing it once, if nothing else. quite gory. never realized a human could hold so much blood. but then again, we ARE talkin the big J here. ;) as far as last night's thingie on the history channel went, they elaborated later on that lazarus was the first zombie, not Jesus.

i also want to know what it is about me that causes people to walk by a whole bunch of other pedestrians, but approach me directly and ask for money. the hell? it certainly can't be because i dress better than most public transit people. and it certainly isn't because i GIVE money out. because i'm approached on a regular basis (shit you not - at LEAST five times most days), i've made it my personal mantra that i will not give money to ANYONE AT ANY TIME EVUR, unless they have blood visibly seeping from them or a rib sticking out. even then, i may just offer to make a phone call for them, instead. but cheese, is it getting old. and every single time, they walk by several other people that are sitting there by themselves, and ask ME. get OFF.

really need to upload the pictures on my camera, yo.

got an 86% on my music theory midterm.

got a 93% on my psych, putting that as my lowest test score this quarter. booya.

still convinced my ear training instructor has no freaking clue as to who i am. it looked almost as if i frightened him when i greeted him at the coffee stand this afternoon. maybe he had too much vanilla caf already.

I tend not to make eye contact with panhandlers. I tend to get targeted if I do.

Congrats on your psych and music midterms! :D

i don't make eye contact with them, i blatantly ignore them and even try to shoot them a 'don't talk to me' look, but it still doesn't work. it's not like i look like shirley temple or anything.

panhandlers like you because...
you probably have an open, "nice" face. Me too. I'm the one everyone picks out of a crowd. People get the impression very quickly that I won't ever harm them.

Once I was doing a traffic survey on a corner with a panhandling Indian. The cars who stopped were always these old beaters, the giver never looked like "managers", more like Democrats instead.

I'm glad the husband and I aren't the only people who never give money to panhandlers. Morgan asked me when he was here under what circumstances I give money to bums, and seemed to think I was somehow not enough of a humanitarian because I said "I don't." But honestly, I've seen at least three people get dropped off at a curb, take off their expensive Timberlands and brand-name clothes, slip into something dirty and full of holes, then hold up a sign saying "Homeless." Besides, call me heartless, but I tend to not pity people in that situation anyway....

My husband had someone ask him for $50 when he got off the bus on Friday. I was pretty amused at that one. I never give money either, too many people asking for it.

You have inspired me. . . .
Dear Rune. . .

I am a Catholic nun from Herlev.
After reading Darwin's book about Origin of Species I have grown insecure about my christian fate. Is it in our modern time totally in vain to believe in Jesus Christ and can the answer be related to something cinematic?

Dear Nun4fun

I cannot answer your question without talking about "The Passion of the Christ". . . The much debated work of art by Mel Gibson.

I must admit that I could not be bothered to watch the rubbish, but judging from Mel Gibson's career; I would suspect that Jesus gets down from the cross by dislocating his shoulder. My guess is that the film ends in an nerve-racking scene, where Jesus and Judas meets for a final fight in some sort of Thunder-dome. If I am all together right, Jesus will still have nails sticking out of his palms which he will use to spit his arch-enemy. Of course complimented by Jesus famous catch-phrase "I nailed him" So please continue believing and look forward to the sequel. . .

ooo... did you cry??

I didn't cry about the Sacrifice, the way a good Christian would.... but remember the part where Jesus is trying to carry the cross and he falls in the street and his poor mom is screaming for him, the way any mother would for her son?

THAT part made me bawl.

i came REALLY close when they were whipping him and she left. really close again during that scene where he falls and the random lady comes out and offers him water.
