Jesus casino!


Here's a pic of the big cross up close that I pilfered from Benjamin. I've always felt that it looked like a casino with a staunchly Christian theme. Note how it looks an awful lot like individual lightbulbs.

There's a big lattice cage around all the lights that looks particularly gaudy in the daylight. Also, there is a chain link fence around the bottom that tends to be surrounded by broken beer bottles and cigarette butts.

I used to think of the cross as an eyesore, then I got used to it. Since leaving the plateau and moving to the NDG I found that I really miss seeing the cross at night. It was like a big tacky nightlight. I'm not saying that I was wishing death on the pope by any means. It's just that if he was going to die anyway, couldn't he have croaked while I still had the awesome apartment on Esplanade that gave me a great view of the cross from the livingroom?

My mom, a self-described recovering Catholic tisked me for saying this. According to her they have to wait 15 days to see if he's really dead, yet they bury him in three days or so. I wonder what colour the cross will become if the pope turns out to be a zombie.

Yes, yes, I'm going to Hell. Want to hang out with me when we get there?

It reminds me most of an airport runway at night. But I guess that's just 'cos I spend too much time travelling... Maybe it is a religious Rorschach test?

Then again, I see Rorschach tests wherever I go; I'm sure it says something about my psychological state of mind...

I'm on a quiz fix lately ... remember that Dante's Inferno quiz? I seem to recall that we are going to different levels of Hell, my fate being far worse than yours (for those of you who are interested, in discovering your level of Hell find out here.).

Anyways, the whole point of my ramblings being, should I find a way to wander on over to your, much happier level of Hell, I shall be more than pleased to hang out with you ... But remember, I still have that plan for a coup and you promised you'd help me give Lucifer the boot.

I shall hold thee to that promise!!!

I'm glad to hear my photos were helpful to you. There weren't as many beer bottles up there as usual, but maybe that's because the cops and TV crews were up there...

What a great picture. I like Jesus. But the pope was better, according to every news station in the world. Forget that millions of people in Africa are dying of aids thanks to his lack of compassion for humanity.

By "recovering catholic" do you mean she's regaining her catholicism after having strayed, or is she recovering from being a catholic?
