We must never, ever be boring.

So in my theater class we read Angels in America, which is a very good play and I recommend it to all of you who have never read it. But anyways we only had to read the first part and post our thoughts on our discussion group FOR THE FIRST PART. Well, I was reading through them and besides being pissed off half of the time for ignorant comments, the spelling errors and grammatical errors, and the plain just not being able to understand what they are trying to say half of the time got to me. ( Yeah I know it sounds like on of my blog-posts, oh well) Well, I came across one that went a little like this

"I didn't really understand what the angels was trying to say or what kind of a book it was that she was giving Prior. I understood that the story goes, God got bored of the Angels and left to be with human kind. Or at least turned his attention to them. This immediately made me think of Jesus Christ because many people believe that that is why God chose to send him son at the time he did. I have heard stories of God getting bored with heaven and that's why he chose that time. It also makes sense becuase it says in the bible, In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth, but nobody takes time to notice that it also says God did this because he was lonely. Interesting that the book would pick up on this idea. It really struck a chord with me, that those who believe must not ignore the fact that God is known to get bored. HOpefully he doesn't get bored with us anytime soon."

Which is all from the second part of the play, and doesn't make any sense. I was reading this to Raksha and she said I should respond with this quote from Chuck Palahniuk,

"All God does is watch us and kill us when we get boring. We must never, ever be boring. " - Chuck Palahniuk, "Invisible Monsters" I found it highly amusing and well did not have the guts to post it on the thread.

One final down, I BSed my way through 5 pages of an essay final in an hour and a half we'll see how that does me. After that I went to go sell back my books and they only took 2 of the five for the class and gave me $3.50 for it, it would almost been better to just keep the damn books, oh well. My other final is tomorrow and much happier, multiple choice and only 75 questions. Then off to watch Tessa read for her final and do laundry, clean my apartment before family gets here, pack half my stuff, and see practically all of my friends graduate in less than a week. Then it is off to Oklahoma City for a week where I will be building a house for Habitat for Humanity. Come back hopefully move into a new place, and start my new job cooking with my dad.
(was going to have cool photos here but it is not working because it hates me.)

Have a good week, and hopefully we'll see each other's smiling faces on the other side of this week.

Hey,
I hope that you have a great time this summer in OC.

The key to Angels in America,
"More life,"...always...no matter the circumstances...it's Prior's most holy and insightful request.

I love that play.

(((hugs)))

Dude, if I knew anything about computers at all, I'd hack into your discussion group and post that quote. I doubt there's much security for it. Your classmates are St00pid.

Online discussions give me nightmares. I can't comprehend people who don't proofread. It makes my eye twitch. Truly poor use of the English language causes the Dark Side to grow strong in me...

What photos were you going to post, little one?

Some ones of happy restaurant kitchen photos I found.

Linus: yeah some of it is truly horrid, one post was trying to say Prior was a Prophet, but instead they said, and the angel came to turn Prior into profit.(completely different meaning)
