Anti-social again...Plus: religion and penises

I went out with Chuck for the day but the truth is other than work, I just like to be at home...Whether sitting in the sun reading, or (more often really) screwing around on the computer... I'll blame my dentist... Because of the vicodin... Now I just like to relax...

We saw Superman Returns, I liked it... Good decision to use the John Williams score cuz that definitely pushed it over the edge into liked-it-ville... I mean parts were a little slow... but all of the actors in it were very good... I was surprised, I expected not to like the be-wigged Lois Lane, but I liked her... and it was smart to go with a relative unknown for Supes himself... and the dedication at the end to Christopher and Dana Reeve...class act all the way.

Oh man, my cousin that just had a baby, her mother is having a fit because she (her husband mainly) refuses to have the baby baptized...it's totally weird because she and the husband go to church and all but the husband says that he wants to let their kid decide in her own time what religion she will be...the reason that is odd to me is because religion annoys me a lot of the time but if I had a kid, I would baptize it.. just the ceremony, it seems traditional like a rite of passage and a time for the family to meet the lil baby...plus I would rather appease my family then have them all up in arms thinking that we are all going to Hell.... what's the harm in a baptism it's not like the kid is not allowed to explore any other religion in adulthood just because they were baptized as an infink. Here is the funniest part... my cousins mother (who is also my cousin, i know but i am trying to be specific enough so's that the casual reader doesn't get confused, good luck huh) and my mother plan to covertly baptize the kid... at first I thought my mother meant they were gonna kidnap the baby and sneak it to a church but all she meant was they are going to say a little prayer and splash water on her lil baby head... now that to me smacks of stupid-stition- but, whatever...I mean it is rather cuckoo when you think about it... I wonder if they will use tap? HEHEH I just hope my mother isn't vehemently pro-circumsion, because if i ever have a son, he is keeping his foreskin, thank you very much, and I hate to think of my mother and cousin absconding with the baby, rubbing alcohol, and a manicure scissors.

Just take an eyebrow pencil and make a little "666" on the kid's scalp. Gets a laugh every time.

i have to agree with alex. the sign of the beast will be a momentum killer.

i never thought audrey could make me feel sick ... but that waving ...

let me off the boat.

weird how you can go years without hearing the word circumcision and then *bam* (or snip?) it crops (doh) up twice in one day. apparently some study has speculated that by circumcising all african men, the aids pandemic can be controlled. they say men are 60% less likely to catch (and spread) the disease if they've been trimmed. (this was on the bbc, otherwise i'd figure it was some catholic medievalist crap.) just call me the world news service. i mention it only in case your hypothetical boy plans on being super promiscuous. though i'm sure he'll only ever love his mom. (not in *that* way. obviously.)
