Yesterday morning I received a text from Katie that read, “Tis the season for pogroms…oh, and we sang “Were You There?” and now it’s stuck in my head.” I laughed so hard I almost choked on my oatmeal.
Because those are the two things that were (are) pretty much running through my mind. Although this time I really tried to understand how anyone could listen to the Passion and want to go out and kill somebody. And I failed. Although, we only got Luke yesterday. I’ll have to let you know if I’m whipped into a homicidal frenzy that I’ve ignored for the past twenty-one years after listening to John on Friday.
Also, Were You There? has to be my least favorite song (after Lead Me, Guide Me and anything that involves clapping) EVER and it’s played CONSTANTLY this week. *sigh*
Anyway. It’s Passover and Holy Week, blog kitties! And that means my little comparative religion major self hardly knows which way to turn and she’s just very excited, okay? I took her to Mass and Eucharistic adoration today because I feel compelled to remind her exactly which covenant she ascribes to, but she also really wants matzoh. So.
I’m very fascinated by Passover. I kind of feel disrespectful because I’m so fascinated, but I swear, I’m not being disrespectful. Just very, very interested.
My head. It’s very interesting sometimes.
