The National Cathedral

Today I went with my roommate Amanda to the National Cathedral. We met up with a couple of her work-friends and attended service. Then we toured the place.

The cathedral has all the fancy stuff that you would expect, including gargoyles and flying buttresses. Some of the stained-glass windows are spectacular. I especially like the one that I was seated opposite-of, which seemed to have a Star Trek theme.

Also, I think that this was the first time that I have attended a full Anglican mass. It was, of course, almost identical to a good ol Catholic mass—only some of the words were wrong and the songs were not as good.

It was interesting to see that the leader type figures get to carry around sceptres, which seems like a pretty good deal. I thought that it would be fun to have a legitimate use for a sceptre. I also think that it would be fun to say something like “Drat! I think I left my sceptor at TGI Fridays! Or did I leave it on metro?”

Another thing that I found interesting is that the former president of Iran, Mohammad Khatami will be speaking at the cathedral next Thursday. I think next Thursday is bingo night at Saint Catherine Laboure where I was baptized.

Here is a photo of the gals

The one one the far right is Amanda. It is with she that I have been staying with since July. On friday Amanda moves back to the San Francisco, and I move into my new place…
