A Poll about what I should write next  
So my body swap fic should be done in a few days and my crack!fic is constantly being updated, so I thought maybe I would do another short story spoof on something.

I've created a poll below for you to use. There's an other box for any suggestions you have.

Remember, nothing is sacred with me however if you ask me to drop Justin down that proverbial well that people sometimes request, I will. I'll do a spoof of "The Ring" where Justin is dropped down that well, literally, and then his super secret admirer, Ted, who has been lusting after him for, well, for a long time, makes a home movie and when anyone sees the movie, they experience erectile dysfunction within 3 days.

So just think about that.

*shudders*






What should I spoof next?

The Omen

Oh God - the blasmpemy! I can feel it coming.

Not religious. However, I was raised in a Catholic household (mom and dad are Italians).

I went to parochial school for 12 years of my life. At the tender age of 14 and onward, I was having theological debates with the priests and nuns teaching us religious history, the bible and such.

If that answers your question. :)

Why?

My high school was actuaally very open about what we could or could not read or watch. We had some very open-minded priests. However, when I was in grade-school, right about the time The Exorcist came out was when the priests and nuns would talk about how we shouldn't see the movie. Which is funny as the person who wrote the book had been a priest and was supposedly based on real happenings.

I was in 7th grade when The Omen came out and I remember the nuns talking about it - how the anti-Christ wouldn't show up in that way and that it was taking too many liberties with the last book of the bible. We actually had discusssions about it! Most of us just wanted to watch the movie to see the infamous 'head-getting-lopped-off-by-plate-glass-window' scene.

No! I did not. One of my employees did however and she was telling me a line from the movie and I thought, 'Wow, they've taken the good lines from there and still turned it into a shitty movie.' At least from what I've heard around.

I love the orignal, with Gregory Peck (who I've always loved since To Kill a Mockingbird). The new one is just a cheap imitation. It's like Psycho - what was the point of remaking that? The originals are perfect.

I know about the whole thing with close-minded clergy. There were still quite a few of them in the church. The funny thing is though, that the most close-minded people were not the clergy themselves, but the parishners. There were hundreds of the 'Joan Kinneys' running around.

However, seeing everything in the news recently, I really have to wonder about what is going on in the churches. I know we never had any problems with that in the schools or my parish. Go figure.

I just rec'd a movie called Sanit Ralph about a boy who believes in miracles and the priest who decides to believe in him. It was really well done. My rec is a few posts back. It's on DVD - I think you might like it. It really reminds me of school when I was young.
