Lamb:

“Just a suggestion,” Peter said to Joshua. “Don’t say the fisher-of-men thing. It’s going to be dark soon; you wont have time for the explanation if we want to make it home in time for supper.”

“Yeah,” I said, “just tell them about the miracles, the kingdom, a little about your Holy Ghost thing, but stay easy on that until they agree to join up.”

“I still don’t get the Holy Ghost thing,” said Peter.

“It’s okay, we’ll go over it tomorrow,” I said.

As we moved down the shore towards the brothers, there was a rustling in some nearby bushes and three piles of rags moved into our path.

“Have mercy on us, Rabbi,” said one of the piles.

Lepers.

I just finished reading Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Friend. It’s got a absurd title and sure enough, the book is equally as absurd; I really enjoyed it though.

As you may have guessed, it’s the story of pre-messiah Jesus (Joshua) as viewed through the eyes of Biff. See, Biff was there when Joshua was only eleven, crushing lizards with rocks just so he could bring them back to life and kill them again. An angel brought Biff back from the dead so that a new Gospel could be written about the young Savior. Twisted, but not nearly as offensive as you’d think.

Potlock Slideshow

Last week ‘berto and I went to a Slideluck Potshow (get it?) where not only do people submit a slideshow of photos, but they also bring a yummy covered dish or judging from what other attendees brought, a box of donuts or a couple of cans of pringles. It was fun watching the slideshows and meeting the myriad people that showd up to the event.

I’m totally submitting some photos of my own for the next Potshow. I have about four months to figure how how many and which photos to use and to find some music to play during the whole thing. I REALLY want to avoid some of the trite, cliche soundtracks that people there had.

Girl… please. “Wind Beneath My Wings” while you show a photographic series of birds?

bah.

So, if anyone has any suggestions, let me know.
