Do you think the prince was played by a woman in order to prevent the actress from having to touch a MAN? Also don't you love how the King decides to ignore forever his earlier daughter who married for love?

I went there and tried to read it, but I just couldn't because it was so boring. We need a new acronym tb;dr

1) So you'll be a "princess" if you wait until Daddy picks out a husband for you, and a "peasant" if you pick your own. Even if being a princess means you live with your husband and 12 children in a 1400 sq. ft. house with one bathroom, while the peasant lady gets to live in a nice house, travel, and do all sorts of interesting things with HER family, because she and her husband waited and worked for a few years to build up a comfortable nest egg, and then decided to use intelligent family planning to ensure each child was loved, wanted, and able to enjoy all the world has to offer.

Got it.

2) I've wondered for quite a while about the whole kissing/hugging part of movies such as Fireproof and Courageous. Having seen neither one, I don't know if they include kissing and hugging (only between husband and wife, of course!), but if they do, how do they justify allowing the actors to engage in such behavior with someone other than their spouse? OH, wait a minute! I DO know...it's the old "This is the rule, except when I say it isn't the rule, and I say it isn't the rule when it makes money for me."

Got it.

Again.

Of course the prince was played by her Daddy! Played by another girl? That is an abomination (like shrimp, lobster, and cashmere/angora blends) Guttermind!

Didn't read the link, but "Fiddler on the Roof" was on tv the other night....I'm thinking its much better than whatever this fundie musical is. :)

As far as 2), I thought Kurt Cameron's wife actually did stand in for the woman playing his wife in Fireproof for such scenes...

Edited to fix html.

SouthPark reference]Do you think the women all gave 45 minute blowjobs afterwards?[/southPark reference]

Saw this the other night and laughed so hard I woke the kid & the dog up, and had to call my sister! We are waiting not so patiently for Book of Morman to begin it's tour in Denver next year.

Really?! Sheesh, these people are just...just...okay, I can't even think of a word.

SO, by that standard, if there is kissing (Princess Bride!!! Is there kissing??), the male actor must be married, and the female actor must resemble his wife enough that they can use the wife as a stand-in.

Not my best parody, but I humbly submit:

TONY

There's a place for us

Somewhere a place for us

Patriarchy is the only way

Wait for me

Somewhere

MARIA

There's a time for us

Some day a time for us

Time together

With no chaperones

Time to learn

Time to bone

Someday

TONY

Somewhere

We'll find the Right way of living

MARIA

The Lord will find a way of forgiving

Somewhere

TONY & MARIA

There's a place for us

A time and place for us

Don't Hold my hand

Or we'll be impure

Hold my hand

When I'm betrothed to you

Somehow

Someday

Somewhere

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
