  1. HEAR YE! O HEAR YE!! Wanna be at my BIG-ol, kick-ass, party-hardy celebrating our resurrection for maaaaany eons in Heaven? A profusion of peace, eternal plethora of paradise, palm trees, 72ish degrees, fuzzy navels, pink, picturesque-portions-we-possess, without price, nor passwords, nor plastic?? You’re more than welcome; you’re definitely invited, miss gorgeous --- God only gives bawls to those who see the need for humility.

  2. Sounds like Judgement City in Defending Your Life.
