I fail at time management…

Every day I make a “to-do” list and every single day I proudly put lines through what I’ve managed to get done and frown over what is left, and too much gets left.

I just discovered a list of people I needed to write thank you’s to, for something. I wrote the list ages ago, and it got buried. Thankfully, it’s never to late to express gratitude, but what a slob I’ve been!

For weeks now I have been meaning to wish a Happy Fifth Blogging Anniversary to Obi’s Sister; I don’t even get to go over there, anymore to read her — not because she’s not interesting, but because some days I don’t even get to read the headlines until…well, about now. It’s a big thing to run a blog for five years, and Ginny’s a sweetie. Happy Anniversary, girl!

More catching up – I’m going to do an old-fashioned tab-bar clearance to get the weekend started:

Over at Catholic Key: Jack Smith is writing about the State Department’s apparent dislike of Ambassador Doug Kmiec’s thoughts and ways. I thought he was foolish to support Obama on the belief that, somehow, this Senator with a 100% approval rating from NARAL would magically turn out to be the president who reduced abortions; he’s the president who will veto a bill that cuts funding to the nation’s biggest abortion provider. But that said, it sounds to me like perhaps Kmiec is not getting a fair shake, here.

A look back at Jonah Goldberg’s writings on abortion, euthanasia and Margaret Sanger. Offered in response to this vile little quote

The Vatican will be meeting with bloggers! We’re coming up in the world! Rocco has the story and Miss Davis is feeling inspired to go to Rome! Somewhat related, today is the anniversary of John Paul II’s funeral.

Msgr Charles Pope: Without the truth we are left only with power. A really good piece, looking at Pope Benedict’s latest book.

The Day the Earth Stood Still: You SciFi geeks kill me, usually, but I like Joseph Susanka’s comparison of the old film and the remake.

Pat Gohn: Makes a great analogy as to getting to confession and that other place you go where nobody else knows…

Via Lisa Graas, who is a Passionist Oblate, news of a new novice and a lovely slideshow of the vestition

The 6 Most Unexpected Converts. I love the Lourdes story, but was also every taken by the information that Buffalo Bill Cody and Sitting Bull!

Hell is getting hot: with Intrigue!

Max Lindenman: Mummies, Miracles and Dry, Dry Bones

Susannah Breslin: I love her name, but I love her smart columns even more

Jennifer Fulwiler: A beautiful piece on the beautiful moon

Patrick Madrid: Mama’s don’t let your babies date non-Catholics. Don’t know if I agree; my Elder Son wouldn’t have met Kitty had we had that rule, but it’s an interesting argument.

A Court of Israel?

The Anchor: If you’re secure in it, you don’t mind where the wind takes you.

Horrible story; I swear, looking at the Drudge headlines is enough to throw me back into wondering if the world is truly upside down and in the grip of a diabolical disorientation.
