I'm not a religious person at all, nor do I believe in the traditional 'heaven/hell' afterlife; but occasionally, a TV show or movie will touch on a deeply religious theme, and completely overwhelm me with an emotional reaction.

This particular conversation is from Lost, season 2, episode 'Three Minutes'.


Michael: I hear you're a priest.

Eko: Yes.

Michael: Guess you believe in hell, then.

Eko: For a brief time, I served in a small parish in England. Every Sunday, after Mass, I would see a young boy waiting at the back of the church. And then, one day, the boy confessed to me that he had beaten his dog to death with a shovel. And he said the dog had bitten his baby sister on the cheek, and he needed to protect her. And he wanted to know whether he would go to hell for this. I told him that God would understand. That he would be forgiven as long as he was sorry. But the boy did not care about forgiveness. He was only afraid that if he did go to hell, that dog would be there waiting for him.

New Dreads!

I got dreads again! I didn't forget what a painful process it was, either... 2 hours of hair pulling/twisting, then another 1.5 hours of chemicals and head throbbing! But it's worth it. :)

It's at the first stage of growth, so right now they're thin, curly and short...

But eventually, they'll look like this again! :D

Halloween 08!

Good food, good company, good drinks... rockin' costume! :D

Pretty close, right? :)

Hooray for special contacts! They were the most expensive part of my costume...

I lasted a good four hours with the mask and contacts, as they were both not very comfortable. But alas, one must suffer for such things sometimes! :)
