A Red/Blue State of Mind Friday Five

Colorful queries from the RevGals and Pals:

Favorite red food
Eggplant parmesan; strawberry pie.

Tell us about the bluest body of water you've ever seen in person.
Call me provincial, but the body of water whose color takes my breath away every time I see it is Crystal Lake, up in Michigan's Benzie County. It's the rarest, most beautiful shade of blue.

It's movie rental time: Blue Planet, The Color Purple, or Crimson Tide?
None of the above. Give me Das Blaue Engel with Marlene Dietrich.

What has you seeing red these days?
Well, among other things, Left Behind: Eternal Forces . Bottom line, everyone behind this product is nucking futs. (Is it allowable for a lay ministerial candidate to use that terminology? I don't care. Feel free to quote me.)

What or who picks you up when you're feeling blue?
My extended human/canine/feline family is very good at cheering me up...I mean, just for one example, it's hard to be crabby when a large, frantically wiggling dog is waving a photo album of herself in my face. I also find that listening to the blues -- the real low-down, down to the ground blues -- is one of the best antidotes ever for the blues.

Oh, yeah, the blues. Specially the Cajun flavour.

Roy Orbison works well, too. His songs are so sad, you figure no matter what's up in your life (or down, as the case may be) it's gotta be better than his...

I forgot the whole marinara family!

Yeah. I ranted about the Left Behind game on B-net and my blog. On B-Net someone said that I was overreacting because killing people in the name of Christ lowered your score evidently. Weird.

I haven't even heard of Left Behind: Eternal Forces. Is it a book, movie, game? Good to know that the kooky end of the Christian sphere hasn't completely dissolved. They're always good for a laugh.

i wish i could laugh at the left behind people, but they scare me!

thanks for sharing the bit about your frantically wiggling dog--too funny!

It's a computer game where the rapture has happened and one comes back at one of Christ's paratroops with the goal of converting or failing that, killing everyone you encounter. The "left behind" people are identified as non-Christians, mainline Christians and gays. In the game, the Anti Christ works at the UN and is the clone from the DNA of two gay lovers.

Oh, and when you kill someone you shout "Praise the Lord!"

It's like the video game the Flanders' kids played in that Simpson episode - except that was supposed to be satire and this isn't.

Please tell me the Left Behind thing isn't real. That I'll wake up tomorrow and it'll all be gone . . .

Well, except for that part, I enjoyed reading your meme!!
