Too Funny

"The Hoohaa Monologues":

A theatre in Florida had to change the title of a charity production of The Vagina Monologues on its marquee, after a woman complained that it was offensive. [...]

Atlantic Theatres in Atlantic Beach, Florida, received a complaint from a woman who'd seen the advertised title as she drove past with her niece. She said that it had made her niece ask her what a vagina was.

Yeah, because with a name like Hoohaa kids won't ask any questions now...

I can understand that parents might be a little disturbed if suddenly "penis" and "vagina" and other words were being flashed at their kids.

But Hoohaa...for me it's almost like calling it Putang or Punani or I don't know what Monolgues...

Hoohaa and Tatas...

*sigh* I will stop being childish and get over this...

Seperation of Church and Football

There’s something rotten in the state of America….

It was to have been a wholesome evening of fellowship and football.And it would have been illegal.Farmland Friends on Friday joined churches nationwide in abruptly canceling its Super Bowl party for fear of violating a federal copyright law that prohibits public venues from showing NFL games on big-screen TVs.[…]

“Under NFL guidelines — and federal law — churches, schools and other public venues can hold football-viewing parties only if they use a single, living-room-size TV, no bigger than 55 inches. When they project the game onto 12-foot screens or set up banks of TVs, they cross the line, according to NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy.”

And of course:
Sports bars are specifically exempted. Churches are not.

I am not a church-goer, but I have often taken part in church community gatherings: pot-lucks, Halloween parties, etc.

I think this is so sad. I understand protecting copyrights, however it’s not like all these churches will be selling tickets or earning money, it's not like the congregation would otherwise be going to a sports bar. Instead they will either: a) not watch the game, b) watch it alone at home.

I wonder which politician sold his soul to disallow the viewing of televised football in public venues other than sports bars.

Wedding Dresses

So I have been to two bridal gown "trying ons". The first time I was just shocked. It wasn't a totally enjoyable experience, because it hit home that I would be walking down the aisle.

Don't get me wrong, I want to get married. I am just worried about the whole ceremony. I wish I could just blink at get it over, and then go to the reception. I have a fear of speaking in front of large audiences. And I don't like it when everyone is looking at me. I get extremely self-conscious. But on the other hand I am looking forward to the whole seriousness of the situation, and I am sort of torn. I want everyone to witness this moment, but I also feel like I want it to be personal and private.

The first trial I just looked at myself in the mirror and was speechless. Especially when they put a veil on me. I was almost in tears.

The second trial was a lot better. I was like those brides-to-be that you see in movies. All excited. Ooohing and aahing with each dress. It was fun.

But I have yet to find THE dress. And I don’t think I ever will. I found many dresses I liked, and would like to get married in.

The lady in the store helping me said sometimes that happens.

So I was wondering…does anyone have any bridal gown stories?
