He's not the Messiah, he's a very naughty boy!

We have finally introduced the family to "the Life of Brian" with suitable warnings about swearing and naked people. For the kids it was an eye opener (not about the naked people) because suddenly everything their parents say makes complete sense.
THAT is why Mum says "I'm Brian and so's my wife"
and "10 for that you must be mad"
and "we are all individuals".
Incidentally, I have always thought that the crowd scene would make a great point in a sermon about how we are, well, all individuals. But then have remembered that Brian has no clothes on. So I was pleased to note that he has by that point so I may show it one day...

It still amazes me that so many Christians were aghast when Life of Brian came out. It couldn't be shown in Swansea, where I was living when it first came out. The film never mocks Jesus Christ, just those who are religious. And we are all too guilty of taking ourselves too seriously. It mocks lots of other people too.

The only scene I have ever found hard was the crucifixion at the end. But then I remember that crucifixion was the punishment of commoners and lots of people would have been up on that hill. I don't expect many were whistling though. (Cue for another sermon which I shall save until Easter I think)

I had to work all day Saturday (sob). I have had some crafty time yesterday and today but yesterday was Daring Cardmakers stuff, which i can't show you and today I have been cracking on with my Circle Journal for Carolyn's and it is the bit I can't show for that until the end!

I will show you a photo that Phil took for me today that I needed for it though...
Oh yes, am I not the coolest person you know?







Don't answer that.

Isn't it frustrating when you craft away but can't share anything with us!!!!!
We all wait with baited breathe, hoping for glimpses....

You're super cool Lythan and don't you forget it Mis... was going to say Missus but its Rev isn't it! How do you walk in heels after the comfort of crocs though?

Enjoy the film, now your kids can join in the quoting and you can all say, "we are individuals" in unison! :D

You're just a Cool, Crazy Cat aren't you?
Please tell me that's not your stash there in the pic though...
About time they did some Python re-runs, so we can all sit and recite along with all our favourites.

"Come back and Fight...."
"Just one extra theen...."
