This has nothing to do with the movie and it is not a review so sorry if I misled you. Lately, I have been feeling as if I was in a twilight zone. It is not necessarily a bad thing. It just feels quite surreal. First of all, I have never really a attended a church outside of Ghana where everyone refers to the other person as "sister-this-or-that" and "brother-so-and-so"! Seriously! I am not even complaining about it but barely stating the reality. At first I did not really know what to think of it. It just sounded weird to hear someone call me "sister Maxine" as if I was a nun. That's exactly what it reminded me of! Maybe I had joined a convent without knowing? The church is a very lovely place and everyone seems so nice and friendly (well most people) but I don't really want to be "sister" Maxine. Just Maxine will do :)

Oh and I just realized that I always spell the word weird wrongly! Grrr... Glad to have spell check!

LOL, about your church? I hope you tell them that? I usually do in a nice way. Even when I was still back in Nigeria, it never sounded right to me. Some say we're all sisters and brothers in Christ and I agree but it does sound funny, LOL
