Hey, is this thing in English. Like I just started learning Katakana and Hiragana. By the time I get this though, I will know it. So do you reccomend this? And where can I order it?

I'm thinking of becoming a television evangelist to pay for one, it's not like any of the other tele-evangelists believe in god either anyway...

JESUS THE LORD SAVES! HALLELULEJA!

Are you familiar with the song "Preachin' Blues" by Son House?

"I'm gonna get me religion, I'm gonna join the Baptist church
I wanna be a Baptist preacher, so I won't have to work"

Wow, I resent that. I am Baptist. Wow you are a man of your faith, oh wait you don't have any. You know that's what's wrong with the world, people like you. It's not even funny, joking or not. But it's ok. Just know that I pray for you! ^^
