Saved!

Hubby and I watched the dark comedy Saved! this morning. The whole idea behind the movie is that being Christian alone doesn't automatically make you a good person, and that you can be a good person if you aren't a zealot Jesus fan.

So of course, I loved this movie. I hate when people profess themselves to be good, heaven-bound Christians, but bend the rules to follow their wants. You know those people, the ones who follow the easy rules and ignore/alter the ones that are a little hard or uncomfortable.

There is a scene where one PZ (previous zealot) girl is confronted by her zealot friends. The leader of the zealots get angry at the PZ girl and throws a bible at her. PZ girl responds to the Zealot Leader with, "This isn't a weapon."

What a wonderful proclamation! How many people use what they find in (read how they interpret) the bible as weaponry on those who are different? The bible isn't a weapon - I love that.

Talk, Talk, Talk...

Proven yet again: I talk too much sober. I talk way too much (and too loud) when I drink.

Another Thought on Hot Chocolate

Adding mini-chocolate chips to your hot chocolate doesn't necessarily make it chocolatier. Turns out they just fall to the bottom and melt there, into that little chocolate mud on the bottom. Better keep that spoon handy.
