Yes, Code! Not coke! I started & finished reading the entire "Da Vinci Code" yesterday. I could not put it down. It was so interesting. The story plot was not true, but all the other facts are supposed to be. In our area there has been a lot of little meetings/speakers on the book, but they have all been Christian ministers & priests. I am interested to hear what they have to say, but what if everything they have to say is all a lie.
I never liked that I felt brainwashed into the Catholic religion. But went you are sent to a Catholic school they aren't going to teach you any other religion. There are a lot of things in the Catholic religion that I don't agree with. (Andy & I say we are recovering Catholics -- which makes people laugh because they are either not Catholic and just think it's funny or they themselves are recovering as well and never heard it put that way.)
We have not found a church for us since moving down there 3 years ago. We really liked House of Mercy, but it's too far of a drive. Everything we found down here is way to conservative and traditional. But I still have this guilt thing hanging over me that thinks when we have children they have to be baptized. Is not baptizing a kid so bad -- I guess it depends who you ask. I just wonder how much that would upset the grandparents (not mine - which I guarantee would be upset, but the future grandparents of our kids -- my parents & Andy's parents).
I think I am addicted enough to code that I will go check out what the ministers have to say at their little conferences. I'd like to see how they dig themselves out of this one.
I might just re-read the book because I do want to investigate some of it -- the claims on Disney, the Da Vinci portatits, etc. And for those of you who are shocked by my "Black Iris" by O'Keefe in the formal room - well, here she is referenced for her work and images of the female body (and some think it is just a flower).
As for addicted to coke - I read that book, "Dirty", the day before and it was pretty good. It was very interesting. I really like the irony in that book.
