15: Al-Hijr (Part II — Devil may care?)

with 40 comments

Like I said in the last post, there isn’t much excitement in chapter 15.  It’s mostly just a regurgitation of the same boring old bullshit.  The story I’ll break down in this post has come up a few times already.  I thought it was worth examining in detail, because — come on! — it’s about the devil.

He may well be the only interesting character in the Quran.  And, as I learned in this chapter, he may not be such a bad guy after all.  If he actually existed, I might feel kinda sorry for the guy.  Shit, I might even invite him over for a beer & ice cream pity party.  We probably have a lot in common; hating God and all.

15: Al-Hijr (Part I — Same ol’, same ol’.)

with 24 comments

I’m dying.

…OK, fine I’m not really dying.  But I do feel like shit.  I have the flu.  I got it when I was telling a sick co-worker of mine to feel better, and she coughed in my face mid-sentence.  No joke.  I had my mouth open and everything, and she coughed in my fucking face.  She didn’t cover her mouth.  She didn’t turn her head.  She looked me in the eye and went *A-HACK!*  Ugh.  I’m getting all queasy just thinking about it.  I’m taking a couple of sick days and using them to blog from my couch.  Whoo!

Something to not Whoo! about:  apparently I’ve already read chapters 15 – 18.  I read them way back before my work life took over my life life.  I made a ton of notes in the margins and everything.  The sad part is that I don’t remember any of this, and I have to sit through those same fucking chapters all over again.  Boo!  Hiss!  I guess that’s what I get for procrastinating.  …still.  Boo!  Hiss!!

Lets get chapter 15 over and done with so we never have to think about it ever again.  OK?  OK!  Jump on in.
