I was just thinking earlier today about how much better my dad looks when he lets my mom dress him. Man was not made to live alone. --Lindsay

Would Fry be this, then, but with B16?

Have you ever heard of the Sweet Valley High series, by Francine Pascal? It was always common knowledge that she used a team of ghostwriters, but it turns out that she did not write a single one of those books nor any of the many spin-offs. Not one. Yet her name is on every single cover. She just came up with the basic plot outlines and got royalties. Best writing gig EVER.

What an excellent imagining of chastisement in purgatory. It reminds me of discussing walking across that awful intersection to the CSC and then across the old rickety bridge. If you did get hit by a car or die falling into the river, at least you were on the way to church. That has to be worth something.

Awesome! Thanks for posting this; I would have missed it otherwise.
I, too, got a free copy of Kelly's book, only at FOCUS Conference years ago. I read it, and I was entirely unimpressed until I got to the latter part that talks about practical applications for the faith (or something like that). That section reached me much more than any of his theory did.

I think that analogy makes sense. I've always thought that, in the case of particular judgment, God would allow souls one last opportunity to demonstrate their choice to love Him or not love Him, to choose eternity with Him or eternity without Him. If you don't want to be with Him, the last thing He would do out of love is force you to be with Him (i.e. in Heaven). He'd give you what you want: the only place where He is not, i.e. Hell. --Lindsay P.S. Did you mean to write that Dante pitied the souls in Hell?

That is a pretty sweet poem. Working in a church does have its perks (daily Mass is as natural as lunch), but it's tricky to adjust to "working" on Sunday. :)
Thanks for posting that; I definitely would have missed it. I still think of Sr. Mara Rose every time I see a Kitchenaid stand mixer (including yesterday at Sears).

Sounds like a good movie. I've never been much of a video game or comic book girl...ever...but something about the trailers for "Scott Pilgrim" drew me in. Thanks for the tips. :) --Lindsay

Elegant review. I've seen the trailers for the film version a lot over the past few weeks, and I am definitely intrigued. North America doesn't seem to be host to much magical realism, so it'll be interesting to compare Scott Pilgrim's journey to, say, Borges. --Lindsay P.S. I *want* to like being able to sign in with my Google account (or, in this case, LJ), but TypePad is the only Google account-enabled site I've seen that wants to post my last name (which I avoid doing). Is there a way around that?
