Oh crap, it’s not Monday!

So here, a bit LATE, is my Tuesday's post for The Register, in which I Do Not Make Anyone Mad.  I hope. … [Read more...]

Masculinity Reduction Surgery

Today at the Register:  Masculinity Reduction Surgery.  In a delicious irony, a few lines of text were snipped from the post, rendering it somewhat less potent than I would have liked.  Oh well. Also, we had some technical problems, and weren't able to include this video, which should have appeared after the line, "THAT'S BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT A MAN." Okay, the whole world is against me today.  WordPress won't let me post the video.  Well, here's the link. … [Read more...]

Straight to the Source!

Today at the Register is the post which made me realize that I was more tired than I thought, because I came this close to naming it, "Never Mind the Politics, Here's the Eucharist!" … [Read more...]

Are you a Catholic feminist?

Well, huh, are ya, are ya? … [Read more...]

Podcast of me on the Son Rise Morning Show

You can find the podcast archived here -- my ten minutes or so start at around minute 50. I did manage to mention Curious George, which makes for good radio, I always say.  And apparently I am incapable of going more than five seconds without saying "absolutely."  Could have been worse! … [Read more...]

I knew it.

TSA Searches and Modesty: What’s a Catholic to Do?

Today at the Register:  A problem which I, happily, don't have to deal with. My short radio spot on the Son Rise Morning Show went well!  I think!  I didn't say anything brilliant, that's for sure, but I managed not to swear or cry or burp.  I'll put up a link when it's available online. … [Read more...]

I’m the NnnnNOUNcer

Tomorrow, Friday, I'm going to be on the Son Rise Morning Show on Sacred Heart radio from about 6:50 to 7 a.m. (EST)   I'm filling in for Danielle Bean, who graciously asked me to sub for her before I made that Red Bull crack on the Register. I will be talking with the host Brian Patrick about big families.  Seeing as I usually get up about ten minutes after the segment is scheduled to end, and seeing as how I generally spend the first hour of my day making feeble groaning noises, I'm … [Read more...]


Spring has sprung, more or less.   I'm sitting here bundled up like a bag lady because I absolutely refuse to buy heating oil in May -- in MAY, for crying out loud -- no matter how chilly the house is.  So we all wear double socks and triple sweaters and gaze longingly at the untouched bathing suits and sandals I optimistically took down from the attic a month ago. The rest of nature seems unaware that it's frickin' freezing:  the tulips are in bloom, the bees and ants are working away, … [Read more...]


Today at the Register:  It's the end of the world as we know it, and I want to offend everyone one last time before I go! … [Read more...]
