In a far away land, long ago, lived a king and his fair queen. Many years had they longed for a child and finally their wish was granted. A daughter was born, and they called her Aurora. Yes, they named her after the dawn for she filled their lives with sunshine. Then a great holiday was proclaimed throughout the kingdom, so that all of high or low estate might pay homage to the infant princess. And our story begins on that most joyful day.
And it goes downhill from there, until the man of her dreams comes to sweep her off of her feet. Although she is a compitent woman, she desires this man's companionship, and realizes that since he is a "manly" male, his ego is fragile and would not stand easily to a strong woman. Therefore she subtly manipulates him into becoming the perfect husband who adores his children and makes quiche, even if he doesn't eat it.
in all honesty, i didn't read your comment before posting - i guess the phrase "it goes downhill from there" is going to be kinda endemic to the area...
LOL. I was wondering about that. You guys are on the same train. Where ya headin?
Probably to hell, you wanna come with me?
Btw, if you want an interesting perspective on christianity read "JOB: A Comedy of Justice" by Robert A Heinlein. If you don't have a copy I might know a newsgroup you could dl one from or someone who could email a copy to you.
What's it about? I'll just get it from the library.. though I have about 15 books I have to read first. :(
- And been there, it's quite warm!
It is a story about a man who, as it starts, wakes having walked on hot coals and fainted, then realizes that all is not as it seems. Starting with, everyone is calling him by the wrong name, and the nice stam ship has changed names and become a "motor vessel." He continues as best he can, finds a lovely woman whom he finds out he was having an affair with aboard ship, and then when the iceburg hits the ship, they fall off and the ship disappears, things really get strange. For more details I would have to spoil some of the story, but if you liked Dogma (the movie) you would probably enjoy this.
I loved Dogma and this sounds very interesting. I shall have to find it.
Where are we going and what are we doing in this hand-basket!?
Forward, and we're tripping the light fantastic
Nice. Who wants to continue it from there? :)
