Entscheidungsproblem,

What does your avatar symbolize or mean?

It is just the patch Brown Coats wore in Firefly.

Shiny!

One of the best shows in the 'Verse.
Started watching it last night. It's pretty rutting awesome.

Cudda been Whedon best stuff. Watch the series then the movie. Big Whedon fan here (not so much with the Doll House, although the unaired episode which showed where the series would've went showed that perhaps it had some promise. Dushku just ain't the actress who could pull of the range of the role she was cast in though.)

Dollhouse had some great promise, but I completely agree that Eliza Dushku did not have the acting chops at all. I knew that it was going to fail when we got an intro of Eliza with tank top, Eliza as dominatrix, Eliza naked. She couldn't carry the series on her shoulders, absolutely not.


On the other hand, Enver Gjokaj was A-MA-ZING. When he was Topher? Brilliant acting.

orthonorm, at first I thought that you meant that Eliza was going to star in a film adaptation of the Doll House and I actually went to check IMDB!  Shocked Thank God that is not happening, ha ha.

And Asteriktos, I know a few male fans of the show who watched just for Eliza, obviously that's why the 1st season intro was just all about her in various stages of undress. I know they are tired of me griping about how her acting skills.  Grin "Shut up and watch the show!!" I HATE bad acting but the story line was intriguing so that did keep me for a bit.

Can't say much about it. The funding ain't fully secure and most of the players haven't completely committed but she will have nothing to do with it.

She was Faith. And that was good in both series.

I think we are five by five on this one, I.

Watched Jesus Camp with my raised-Pentecostal husband last night and didn't sleep very well at all.  Undecided


Even at my most charismatic "peak," I would have never raised my children like that or permitted them to attend such a camp, but I cried last night, wondering why I had stayed so long when I harbored serious doubts from the very beginning -- I was tricked into being saved, and I knew it.

Usually Christians don't get the benefit of the doubt in movies, but this film I thought was pretty fair. It was entertaining but wouldn't go for a second watch or a recommendation.

I feel similarly cheated at times. That all my life I've been led to believe something was Christianity only to find out it really isn't. And as you said, there are serious issues/red flags the whole way, but what can you do. I thank the Lord that truth wins out in the end.

Yeah, it was really weird...I usually trash documentaries, but after it ended, my husband and I just looked at each other. Besides from the talking to the cardboard Bush part, we had seen almost every aspect of the movie in our own churches. He said that it reminded him too much of his own upbringing and riled up some anger against his own parents.  Undecided

Kind of wish that we didn't watch it, but it opened our eyes even more and I am thanking God constantly that He led me to Orthodoxy. If that's what it had to take, so be it.

Like you said, it hurts because we thought that it was Christianity, but let me tell you, watching those children speaking in tongues, convulsing, and getting red in the face....my body tensed, I felt goosebumps erupt all over my body, and I was just weeping. That didn't look like God to me at all- I couldn't believe that I was there just a few years ago. Yoy.


On a lighter note...I can't think of one. Feels like one of those days where everything is going wrong, spiritually. Lord have mercy.

Thank you!  Smiley Indeed, I am very excited about tomorrow.


Had a not-so-great night last night, but some reading out of Met. Kallistos' book and some prayer greatly lifted my spirits. I'm ready for this day to be better...if it's even just spiritually!

Have you tried Alavert?  It's the only thing that works for me, besides Nyquil/Benadryl, and those only work because they render me unconscious.

Haven't tried Alavert yet. I'm thinking of picking up a new medication this week. I'll check it out (I was also thinking about Allegra).

Same here with Benadryl! It works wonders, and by wonders, I mean that I am pretty much rendered useless for the next few days. It triggers my fibro symptoms badly. I only take it when I have a bad reaction to mosquito bites and benadryl cream isn't enough...

My rarefied nervous system has yet to find the substance that can knock me out. At one time some opiates could, but no longer and many of those I am allergic too nowadays. Shot opiates for a while when young then stopped because frankly it was pretty boring. Had oral surgery for wisdom teeth extraction later and I blew up and had to go to the hospital after taking a pittance of opiates. Very embarrassing.

Had to go through twilight sedation for an angiogram. They couldn't put enough benzos and barbs into me to put me into a sedate state. My respiratory rate got too low to take any more and I was a very chatty, yet relaxed, and annoying patient I am sure. Took the edge of having to watch my arteries and heart in HD thankfully.

The nurse assured my friends who were to take me home, I would eventually hit a "wall" and pass out from the sedation and surgery. That happend about 60 hours later. Was high and ready to go for a few days without much sleep.

Next time, I am asking for ketamine. Didn't do much of it to develop any great tolerance and did it a long time ago as a youngster as it was easy to get from folks who made their living off of large animals. K is what they give to kids for the most part due to easier dosing, so that is my choice next time.

There aren't enough benzos in the world to put me under, well unless it is enough to kill me. Even then it would be a heroic amount. Stopping them though is life threatening if you are hooked. It is serious drug like alcohol. No piker stuff like heroin or coke.

Did pop a handful of amitriptyline once, knocked me out for a few hours only to wake into a fugue state. Made for some awesome middle of the night phone conversations evidently.

Amitriptyline might be the sleep drug of choice for little old ladies but is easy to OD on. One of the drugs I would not counsel most kids not to swipe from Granny's medicine cabinet and eat like candy.

If anyone has any drug or alcohol problems feel free to PM for suggestions on stopping or taking the edge off or adding to it.

If this is too explicit, feel free to wipe, mods.

I would think just about any webpage at that age would be respectable. When I was 11 I was too busy playing with Lego and G.I. Joes to be involved in all that fancy smansy computer stuff.

Well I was growing up at the age when more and more people started to have computers in their homes, around America Online 2.0 or so. We were the beginning of the computer-obsessed generation, and I ended up teaching my parents how to use it.  Cheesy Sad to say that I didn't learn much more HTML than I did when I was 11. Things have been moving so quickly!


Just got my federal tax refund!!! My accountant told me that the gov't basically took pity on us because we were in a "certain income tax bracket" (her euphemism for POOR) and married. Hey, we need to attend to the car so Glory to God for that.  Cool

Whhhooo I just have to say this, I posted a quote from of Frank Schaeffer's Crazy for God and he commented on my blog page! He just said thanks for reading the book, but I always get a kick out of authors doing that.


The other time that happened was when I posted an entry about a dairy-free cookbook that my friends gave me for Christmas one year. The author actually wrote me a long detailed comment about my review and made suggestions for my diet. She never identified herself as the author, but I knew it was her!


Teh interwebz is strange stuff sometimes.


ETA: I have to post the quote. It was too good. (I just stopped myself from e-mailing it to all of my charismatic/pentecostal friends.)

"The logic of those prayers, if one was reading between the lines, was something like this:

'Dear Heavenly Father, in Your Word You say that when two or three are gathered together, You will be in the midst of them. Well, we're gathered here, so do what we're telling You to do because we have You over a barrel and can quote Your own books back at you! And in case You're thinking of weaseling out of this deal, we claim Your promises, and because You can't break any of those since You wrote it all in the Bible, You'll do what we say, and You'll do it NOW! AMEN!'"
