My collection of Jesuses – or Jesi?

I don’t know how it has happened, but I have a rapidly increasing collection of Jesuses, or maybe Jesi. No idea what the plural might be. It started years ago with Nick giving me a Jesus Super Hero figure. Then Henry brought me a little plush Jesus mobile phone cover thing from Hong Kong. My nephew and niece gave me a plush toy Jesus for my birthday this year, and I bought myself a Jesus action figure when at the Woodend Winter Arts Festival.

This week Cat sent me a Jesus on a spring for my dashboard. It came through the mail, and I opened the parcel just outside the Post Office and almost had hysterics.

And then Murray bought me some Jesus pencil tops.

Not quite sure why this is happening, but should I just give in and accept that I now appear to collect kitsch Jesus?

 (Thank you Cat and Murray – you definitely brightened my week.)

  1. Only true enlightenment can be found on the end of a spring. Beware of false prophets who will try and tell you otherwise.

  4. Bicycle helmets? Chopsticks? Has the world gone mad? (And here’s me feeling self-conscious reading Marcus Borg on the train.)

  5. I’m searching for a Bobble-head Jesus as we speak. (Err, write.) I’m fairly sure that Michelle had one, so she’ll know where I can find another…
