Friday Funny…

... and Another Priest Weighs in Against Blessing Kids.Kids. Can’t stand ‘em. Monsters of ego, every one. You know how you can tell a kid from a leech? That’s a trick question: you can’t. Well, actually, you can. If a leech gets hold of you, you can burn it off with a Bic lighter. Try that with a kid, and sure as you’re born, the little bastard will scream and cry like a Templar at the stake. Then he’ll tell his parents and you’ll get a nasty letter from your vicar general.So, I take it u … [Read more...]

Trayvon Martin™, irony, and abortion…

... Let me get this straight; it is perfectly acceptable for a mother to kill her own child via abortion but when someone else murders that child it becomes a national incident with teens rioting, death threats, intimidation, and bounties for that murder's head at prayer vigils. Oh, and we can't forget the capitalistic trademarks because righteous indignation, no matter how misguided, is a profitable business.Of course none of those actions are the same stereotypical behaviors African … [Read more...]

Bees and Vicious Chickens, Oh my…

So now I am being in talked into getting bees.Let me re-cap the insanity.First there was the rabbit trapping venture where one neighbor used my land to lay traps in return for some stew, then it was the veggie swap, then chickens - which I am still totally doing- and next is beekeeping.

Farmer Kat…

... or things I kill on any given day.I've decided that since I finally have enough land, I was going to start farming. "Farming" in the urbanized definition being a couple of raised garden beds and maybe some chickens. Ok. I'm totally sold on the idea of having chickens. Just look at this cute coop!That's a legitimate reason to have livestock right? Because of the cute accessories? Sure. I mean look at it. It's in Tarheel Blue!I'm even going to Raleigh's Tour d'Coop this … [Read more...]

pity be damned…

... God has a wicked sense of humor. I can prove it.What's worse than bumping into someone you once dated looking absolutely horrible - like ripped pantyhose, tea stained blouse, haven't washed my hair in two days horrible? Why bumping into him looking that way on Valentine's Day while he's out with his new love, of course. Not only did she appear ten years my junior but her hair was clean too. Figures.Even though I looked like a vagrant I could see the painful regret in his eyes as he … [Read more...]
