***Penance, laughing***

Last night my friend CS and I saw Late Night Catechism II. Just like last week, we were quickly in stitches as the nun (played by a different actor) focused on the new topic: penance for one's sins. Some of the highlights:

  • Why an ex-nun (from the audience) was asked to leave the nunnery (i.e., got a little too friendly with the wine.)
  • Lots more Q & A.
  • Why it's better for all Christians that Jesus chose to die for humanity sins on the cross than be stung by bees.
  • The difference between gossip and too much gossip (the latter is a venial sin apparently.)
  • Why Frank Sinatra's burning, roasting, sizzling, etc.
  • Chutes and Ladders, Catholic-style.
  • Episcopalians: Catholics with Cash.

Several of the audience, including myself, noted LNC II felt more preachy than the first one. But it didn't matter: my face was aching when the show ended. And apparently my laugh was loud: several members of the audience came up to me and said I must have been really enjoying the show since they could hear me so well.

Overall, a great evening.

***Super spouse to the rescue***

We saw--finally--the movie, the Incredibles, on Saturday. Wow! We haven't enjoyed an American animation since Finding Nemo. Both The Spouse and I enjoyed the more quiet beginning and the rocket ride that formed the latter half of the movie. You know a movie's good when the audience clapped several times throughout its showing and at its ending.

Sunday I played Mr. Incredible to The Spouse when I drove an hour up to Northridge to drop off some forgotten toiletries. Now I hope that my endurance is super today: I continued reading Kushiel's Dart after I got home from writing and got sucked into the dark fantasy, reluctantly putting the book aside at 0300 in the morning. Ugh.
