Religious Sisters - Nuns - and the like ...

Have you ever met one? were you ever tempted to become one?

I grew up in a kids home which was run by a religious sister.
at one time in my life, I thought I'd like to choose that path too ...
Sister Emmanuelle is one of my big role models. she died last year.
and a guy I know told me he always had a secret crush on religious sisters.

Sada,

From some of your previous posts, I don't really think that this is a route for you

Whatever your beliefs, you have to admire the commitment and dedication to devote one's life to a single cause.

Re: Religious Sisters - Nuns - and the like ...

When I was a child I was put on a catholic school. I had a nun as my first teacher.

She was from spain, I was 6 at that time and that nun was the most wonderful and sweet teacher I had, she was probably 22 then. I remembered like that when growing up and often came to visit her to the little kids section where she worked

When I was 14, she decided to give up the habits, and went out of the congregation.

I could however see her when she came once to visit with her then boyfriend.

There I saw her, now probably 30, with wonderful long red hair and so hot

That changed my perception about nuns forever

Re: Religious Sisters - Nuns - and the like ...

My aunt is a nun in Ingenbohl. Way back in the olden days, many families considered it a duty to put one of their many daughters into a nunnery.

My aunt seems to be happy but she's even happier after a glass of beer.

You're so right. I've abandoned the idea quite some time ago

Re: Religious Sisters - Nuns - and the like ...

For 11 years, I attended a convent school run by nuns. A few were sweet, warm and helpful, a few were cold or indifferent. All were strict disciplinarians. Until today I feel a compulsion to pick up any litter I see in corridors of public buildings.

Re: Religious Sisters - Nuns - and the like ...

I went through that thing of being a nun - but it was probably because I went to a girls convent boarding school for 14 years.
Some of the nuns were so lovely but some were not....
I was always a rebel and nearly got expelled a few times most notibly sneaking out to go to a party at the nearby boys boarding school.
I became a Governor of the school a few years ago but one of the horrid nuns was still unpleasant but another one who has long since retired remains one of my closest confidances and has been a major role model for me in later life.

The Flying Nun hasn't been shown much on Swiss TV I think. I can't remember having seen it. Looks fun


Here is a piece of my favorite Sister Emmanuelle.

Something about a bunch of healthy, non-retarded women sitting around and engaging in mental masturbation instead of actually helping people that doesn't light my fire for them... also most fell from the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down... before climbing up again and repeating the process...

tsk tsk tsk ... when that dude has a go in his ugly mood, it is also as if he hit the same tree over and over again with his head, totally deranged.

Re: Religious Sisters - Nuns - and the like ...

Nuns remind me of "The Sound of Music" which reminds me of Boxing Day.

Never had them feature in my education but one of them spotted me stealing a pink foam shrimp from the Pick n' Mix selection in Woolworths when I was a kid and slapped the back of my hand as I went for another.

I learned a valuable lesson that I should make sure nobody is looking before I steal something.

Re: Religious Sisters - Nuns - and the like ...

"A nun, at best, is only half a woman, just as a priest is only half a man." Perhaps the fact that Miss Sada is half of each explains her fascination for them. I imagine that, should she have chosen the path of nunnery, she would have insisted on donning this attire at all times:

Maeve Binchy, the Irish writer, has some fun episodes in her books, related to nuns. Love it.

I have a total fascination for nuns and prostitutes.

Audrey Hepburn made me want to become a nun when I saw the film on TV. My parents had some trouble in breaking the news to me that (a) I was much too young and (b) didn't look anything like Audrey Hepburn, and thus that (c) I probably wouldn't be able to duplicate her love affair with Peter Finch
