Good Friday

Someone told me that in Mexico today, they will reenact the crucifixion by actually hammering nails into “Jesus’” hands. OH HALES NO TO THAT.

This person agrees to be “Jesus” for five years. The doctor xrays his hands and marks a target into his palm. Ambulances stand by.

Growing up, I took my Holy Communion and was even confirmed. I chose Mary Magdalene as my saint because my name is Marie Madeline and because I liked how she was a whore.

Once when I was a kid I found a pink Hello Kitty mini notepad at church.

Nowadays if I drink too much whiskey I will sometimes recite a whole Catholic mass.

I still think Catholicism is the prettiest religion.

I was never Catholic….

…but my mum once bought me one of those tiara/veil thingies that were obviously intended for First Communion. It was the best thing I ever had in my dress-up box.

[Does this make me a bad person?]

I am a total heathen but I’m related to a bunch of nuns. They are sweet as pie. I drank beer with them today.
