What do you do on the Sabbath?
Does anyone do anything fun on the days when religious people are congregating? I'm curious to see, since Sunday (the majority of people in this town are Christians) is the slowest day of the week for me.

RE: What do you do on the Sabbath?
I play video games, and more often than not, ones that involve violence. If I'm feeling really blasphemous, I might play one where I get to be a god, or kill a god (Black & White, The Elders Scrolls III: Morrowind, Neverwinter Night 2: Mask of the Betrayer, Baulder's Gate 2: Throne of Bhaal, etc).


After that I might watch some porn, lust after some women; the more sin the better is usually the case. Then I go out and pick up a stick or two for good measure. I also will laugh at a bald man if given the chance, although those rare moments are to be savored. Then I bake a whole cake, and eat it myself. Usually a devil's food cake, if only for the irony; I'm also a huge fan of German chocolate cake...

Also video games, occasionally a tabletop RPG. Laundry. Forums.

I go about my day as usual.

- Wonder why Long&McQuades isn't open, when its obviously the best day for fuckin around and playing some instruments

- Take a jog or bike anywhere full of trees and anything that can't quite be considered a path.

- watch the walking dead, even though the entire zombie mechanic makes no biological sense...

Dungeons and Dragons. Although since Hasbro screwed it up, I've been playing Pathfinder instead. These days D&D doesn't have that "Satanic" label anymore, not like in the old days with Patricia Pulling and her cronies trying to convince the whole world that D&D was satanic.

Noon - 6pm, every Sunday.

I live in Salt Lake City, the Mormon capital of the world, and they teach that working on Sunday is very bad, and it's just as bad to make other people work on Sunday, so no good Mormon would even buy a pack of gum or put gas in their car or go anywhere or do anything on Sunday that requires an employee to interact with them. Of course, this means that most of the city shuts down on Sunday - no reason to be open when most people won't come to their business on the sabbath. Not everything, but a lot.

So it's just as well to find something to do with friends at home.

Steal the neighbor's goat, and do a burnt offering to the gods. It works. You really should try it. Every day I do one, it wards off another earthquake. I have proof. I keep records. No really. Weeping

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Which Sabbath?

RE: What do you do on the Sabbath?
Husband's a (loosely)practicing Jew...so every Friday night at sundown is a Sabbath in our house. I make a Challah bread...we crack open a good bottle of wine, light a couple of candles and say the traditional prayer....Hopefully some schtupping will ensue... Drooling (Hey..its a commandment I like to keep!) and then Saturday morning we finish off the Challah (French Toast). Not bad for a couple of old people who unfortunately still have our two oldest living with us...love um...but ready for them to get out on their own....oy vey. Sadcryface2
