(Noah bites the big one.)
Yesterday, I walked to church. It was a five mile jaunt. But that's OK. I need the exercise. The service is held in a bar/restaurant. We have several ordained pastors who lead the flock. I usually just pretend to listen. I'm quite good at smiling and nodding my head in a thoughtful manner.
The guest lecturer was a former North Korean refugee. He talked about being tortured as a young man. One of his friends actually had his arm chopped off by his own mother. She used his severed appendage to nourish the family. I shit you not. In fact, our speaker crossed into China for the food. He now attends a popular university in the ROK. The government is picking up the tab for his tuition. North Koreans get a lot of financial benefits.
I took the family for pizza. Then we went to the cinema and watched Noah. The film stars Russel Crowe in the title role. I didn't relish the experience. The writers completely screwed up the story. They turned the biblical classic into a misguided fantasy/action flick. To make matters worse, there was a touch of new-age humanism mixed into the fetid broth. Yuck. I was very disappointed.
We walked back to our Soviet-style concrete tenement. I paid homage to the Christ God. I said the Lord's Prayer on bended knees. No big surprise. I refuse to babble like a pagan. Furthermore, I begged Jesus to forgive Russel Crowe for starring in such a piss-poor stinker. I want a refund.
I went to bed at 10 p.m. I didn't dream. I woke up at 6 a.m. and drank several cups of coffee. Then I read the paper while enjoying a bathroom break. Ryu Hyun-jin pitched five scoreless innings for the Los Angeles Dodgers. The squad defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks seven to six. Both teams are currently competing down-under in Australia.
I turned on Fox News. The pundits are finally admitting that Malaysian Flight 370 is at the bottom of the Indian Ocean. About freaking time. Some of the news coverage has been downright shameful. Nothing but baseless speculation. I've heard everything from aliens to black holes. Talk about a load of shit.
Anyway, let's listen to the song du jour. Here's Aenema by Tool. God bless.
