Colbert the Catholic

By now you should have seen this soon-to-be iconic video clip of Stephen Colbert testifying before the Senate about the importance of migrant worker's rights. If you haven't watched the clip, you must. It's stunning to hear Colbert state so clearly the biblical gospel mandate to serve the "least of these."

Imagine my glee when I found (via Andrew Sullivan) this clip from 2008 of Colbert commenting so fluently on the problem of evil, origins of hell, and character and nature of God (watch to the end).

"I TEACH Sunday school, motherf*cker."
LOL! Classic. That belongs on a T-shirt.
Another good line: "You send yourself to hell. God doesn't send you to hell." Preach!

I cannot wait to go to Colbert and Stewart's rally in D.C. Wheeeeee!

sporadic posting due to unsustainable living

life has been a hectic whirlwind of activity which promises not to die down until ... ooooooh the holidays are over. this weekend was spent in New York celebrating my friend Sam's wedding. I am still haunted by some of the beautiful images from this weekend: sam's face when he saw his sister coming down the aisle as a bridesmaid; sam's face as he saw his bride, veronica (even i could not hold back the tears! she was stunning); sam's dad as he officiated the wedding and served communion; the ridiculously beautiful guests as they all danced salsa and meringue, while us less-coordinated races (read: asians) sat to the side nodding to the beat. It was seriously beautiful, see for yourself.

(Sam races down the aisle, high-fiving guests towards the finish line)

(How handsome is my friend?? Sam cannot hold back the excitement as
Veronica enters the room, his grandma and mother look on.)

(The beautiful couple at the altar. Behind them you can see communion ready to be served.
I had the distinct honor of singing a lovely Spanish worship song during communion.
I was blessed to play a part in their special day!)

In other news, I continue to be obsessed with Wicked. Here are photos of me on our bus ride back to D.C. singing along with the soundtrack -- I'm pretty sure I am singing "What is this Feeling?"

(I will gladly endure a long bus ride back to D.C. as long as I have my Wicked soundtrack!)

Here I am at the Target $1 section where I found some Halloween garb that allowed me to dress up like Elpheba. "Chris, Chris!" I exclaimed. "Take a photo of me as Elpheba!" He reluctantly agreed, to which I posed and declared, "No one mourns the wicked!"

Today I miss my parents. A lot. This photo on my sister's facebook page makes my heart hurt a little.

I admit it, I made fun. I doubted. I became exasperated. I rolled my eyes.
But I have to eat my words because Chris building his own bed was probably one of his best ideas!

Good job dude.

But seriously ... just buy a freaking dining table.

(built by Christopher in his new apartment. Congratulations!)

more Sufjan

another good one from sufjan -- all his shows are sold out *sigh* but he has a new album coming out, on top of the ep!

**for some reason the play is not working -- click on "new album" above to hear the song.

big update

Work has been insane and it's been nonstop after work as well. Here is a massive update to make up for my blog neglect.

The best grammar book ever, a lovely gift from my intern Amy

Washington Monument trip -- it was cloudy but awesome!

A nice quiet day at the office.

Chris and me before the start of WICKED! I'm officially obsessed (and a 12-year-old girl)

No one mourns the wicked!

At the U.S. Open!

Tennis matches are incredible to watch live.

Monfils in action. Chris said he was sluggish but he looked pretty amazing to me!

My favorite player Olivier Rochus! He lost the match but he played with great heart.

We are hot, tired, sweaty -- and ELATED!
