I stood in the middle of Penrith Plaza filming this. And almost got punched out at the end.

  2. What I'm thinking is we put all the religions on a lazy susan and spin them around like it's one giant game of Wheel of Fortune. Because when you think about it, that's all we've really got isn't it.

    Now, who to be Ian Turpie and Adriana Xenides.

    Funny side story - a friend of my BIL was on WOF many years back. He cracked a joke and then, when there was a production break, Ian Turpie came up to him and through gritted teeth and fake smile said, "I'm the only one around here crackin' jokes buddy, are we clear?".

    True story.

  3. Christmas is a really confusing time isn't it. Last year, in the depth of my struggle, we went to church every week, and I sent out baby Jesus xmas cards...... This year I am Buddhist and don't quite no what to do with the holiday season. (my poor kids must be confused)

    They say Jesus is the reason for the season, but in this modern age, how much of the reason for the season is actually Santa REALLY?!? (And I mean no offense to Christians, really, I don't)

    I guess at the end of the day, we all have to assign our own meaning to Christmas, religious, spiritual or not.

    It is great to reflect however, on what Christmas means if you are not Christian or Jewish. Perhaps we should pay a little more attention to celebrating and respecting other religious festivals.

    Not as a "token" form of respect, rather, a "let's take a day in the life of this religion and learn about it by doing". It could be fun. Our kids could learn by doing, and understand that at the end of the day who cares what religion you follow, as long as you respect everyone else's.

  6. It's just spinning so fast! To, The Lake House Writer - I agree, "these days" (hate that phrase, sounds so silly but I'm too tired to think of another way to say it) Christmas is about Santa now, which is why we've chosen not to include Santa in our Christmas celebrations - for us we believe it's about Jesus. We are met with a lot of opposition for our choice though...

  7. I agree, it's spinning too fast. You might stab Mary or Joseph with your fork instead of Baby Jesus when trying to make your lunch choice.
    I was expecting security to come up and ask you to stop drooling over the lazy susan. That or stop filming..

  9. A religious bain marie might be nice or maybe some sort of spit roast. Buddha kebabs?

  10. You know that people probably thought you were filming this because you loved it so much, right? And when you go to this mall people are going to say 'There's that chick-a-do who loved the Christmas decorations' Forever

  11. Love that lip curl at the end. Be careful with that thing. You don't know your own strength. ;-)

  12. As always, you make me wanna do crazy things. Santa, Jesus, it's all gotten so complicated. When I was little it was all about Jesus and family and food. Now it's all about presents.

    If I could be bothered I'd change it. But sometimes it's a struggle to just stay alive...

    I might go do a vlog about you...

  13. God love ya (and I meant that in the non-spiritual, you're a crazy cat kinda way). I would have walked right on past that without a moments notice. Love how your mind works. All that was missing was a bit of glitter/snow, and it would remind me of my awesome snow globe collection (just minus the baby Jesus et al)

  14. Wow, baby Jesus is definitely going to spit up.

  15. I seriously love you. You are so brave. *hugs*

  16. Yeah it probably does feel like a smorgasboard with every variety of religion or belief system on offer. I don't know how other religions would feel about linking up on the same day however....I mean the Jewish community have Yom Kippur and the Buddists have Visakah Puja... would they want to share those sacred days with Jesus..... what's wrong with letting Christians have Christ-mas, seeing as Santas got a pretty big bite of that cherry already...

  17. Pathetic, ignorant and disrespectful

    ReplyDelete
  18. Anon, disrespectful is sticking Jesus, Mary and Joseph in that thing to begin with. I'm not ignorant. But I *am* pretty pathetic. I'll give you that.

  19. They at least could have included the Buddha butter dish I saw in a catalog today.

  22. I find that display pathetic, ignorant and disrespectful, anon! Just like your comment!

  23. Fuck that thing goes fast. A not-so-lazy susan.

    Jesus would get all cut up and stuff from trying to catch him.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Dude! If that thing went any faster you could have called it a spinning vortex or religion.

    Oh oh! They could do an agnostic spinning vortex with a nice big question mark in the middle.

    Seriously though, maybe they were trying to keep it in the same spirit as the pope mobile?
