Some dialog from the T.V. series Lost, which I really enjoy:

MICHAEL: I hear you're a priest.

EKO: Yes.

MICHAEL: I guess you believe in hell, then.

EKO: For a brief time I served in a small parish in England. Every Sunday after Mass, I would see a young boy waiting in the back of the church. And then one day, the boy confessed to me that he had beaten his dog to death with a shovel. He said that the dog had bitten his baby sister on the cheek; and he needed to protect her. And he wanted to know whether he would go to hell for this. I told him that God would understand -- that he would be forgiven, as long as he was sorry. But the boy did not care about forgiveness. He was only afraid that if he did go to hell -- that dog would be there waiting for him.

Thank you for not smoking

Tonight, Lindsay and I went out to eat and see a movie (which we never watched). When I asked the host how long the wait would be, she said "30 minutes". I thought that was pretty good and asked if that was no preference. She responded "There is no preference now". I forgot! Greenville, SC has a public smoking ban!

I have to say, I originally thought it was a crazy idea to ban smoking in ALL public places. But when we walked to the bar for a pre-dinner drink, it sure was nice to not have smoke in our faces.

Save Me From Silverman

Am I the only person in the world who thinks Sarah Silverman is just not funny? I hate her self-loathing comedy routine. During an interview she was shown an image of herself in Star magazine in one of those best dressed/worst dressed sections. She was in the worst dressed. Instead of being a sport about it or writing it off, she got really defensive like she was back in high school again getting picked on. Get over it!

Reason I bring it up: her new show is horrendous.
