The Saddest Commute…

tumblr_m0axzgP1Qg1qhtih0o1_500

... Back story - my car battery died and I don't know the anti-theft code to reset the car stereo to get it working again. I also have no A/C in my car. So I have the saddest commute into work ever.But it's not all bad. Sometimes I pull up next to someone who has their windows down and radio on loud enough for me to listen. And I'm all like.... OOoooo. That's my jam.Except, some people apparently find this behavior super creepy. Especially when you start to sing along. Because … [Read more...]

... By now I'm sure everyone's seen the video of the dancing clerics. I just found the whole thing silly and awkward; just another facepalm moment in church news. Dignity... always dignity.And then I went back to my weekend... because, you know, it's just a video.When I come back online this happened.NAZIS! Nazis everywhere!Kitler is not impressed.Now, ripe from all the head spinning, the media has provided a new fresh hell. Pope OK with Gay Clergy, declare … [Read more...]

... Well, I do love me some ecclesiastical bling. Should I get the towels monogrammed to reflect the new title? I'm not sure whether to be slightly embarrassed, flattered, or horrified at my potty mouth. Allow me to present to you the hazards of conducting interviews while drinking wine.Like the continuous play of a rugby match, Ms. Fernandez completed her interview within a single eighty-minute session on Facebook chat. And a bottle of wine. The thread was at times chaotic, but never … [Read more...]

Chupacabra, Alien, or Devil Dog. Just a Typical Evening In Rural North Carolina…

skert

... Have I mentioned lately how hard it is to get adjusted to living in a rural area? There's the being so secluded no one can hear your screams freaky, the unpredictable and hostile animals freaky, and the monsters in the woods freaky. And don't get me started on the insects! But this weekend added a whole new level to the freakiness that is my everyday life. I saw a Chupacrabra Friday night. At least that is what everyone is telling me I saw. Or maybe it was a mountain lion... in … [Read more...]

... Boy, that coin I threw in the Trevi two years ago really worked! Looks like I'm going to be heading back to Rome with my partner in crime for the canonization of two popes by ... wait, two popes. What does it all meeeeeean?Since I was there for the beatification of JPII and now his canonization I'm pretty sure this makes me an honorary Polack. And the biggest Catholic fangirl ever.Anyway, I have so much to do until then. Like figure out what I'm going to wear for that long … [Read more...]

Is It Friday Yet…

Please hold while I connect you to someone who gives a damn.

... I certainly hope the conversation I just had first thing this morning isn't indicative of how the rest of the day will be. Warning: When my patience is tried, I say "shit" a lot.ME: Why hello. Yes, that property you are calling about is still for rent. Why yes, the rent is $425 a month.PERSON: Is it nice? I hate it when people rent houses that aren't nice or something they wouldn't live in themselves. Is the kitchen updated & appliances new?ME: We have photos available on our … [Read more...]
