    I've just booked some cinema tickets for later today and also ordered a book I want to take on holiday. From nowhere that scripture they were always quoting at us came to me, something about don't be planning ahead for the desires of the flesh.

    You always had to be planning spiritual, theocratic stuff, entertainment and pleasure were a bit dodgy, better not tell anyone. No wonder they're all sick and have mental health problems.

    Ucantnome you should have at least two vacations a year now to make up for it. Same here because my mother took us to conventions instead! Then I pioneered so no money, stupid! Making up for it now.
