"Remember, remember, the 5th of November,
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
We see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot."
Guy Fawkes Day, what a lovely holiday. too bad bonfires aren't legal without a permit around these parts. there's a fireworks display over the River Thames tonight and it might just be possible to view some of it from this webcam.
ok, so maybe it's just me but i don't see why everyone is making such a fuss over the Jesus theories in The Da Vinci Code. it's been purported for years that Jesus and Mary Magdalene had a relationship. that some people find that impossible to believe, well, it bothers me. i found this quote from Tori, who over the years has said a lot of about Mary Magdalene and it speaks to how i feel:
"I'd ask my dad, 'If Jesus did it with Mary Magdalene would that make what he taught any less valid?' And he'd go on about my disrespect. Because Jesus maybe had a sexual encounter with a woman, did that make him less? Was he soiled by it and what does that say about women?"
i do think it's good that the theory is, i guess, out there to the general public now, but it should have been ages ago. christianity is definitely a religion that could use a penis.
