Phenomenally Craptastic Week…

... I missed my calling as a hermit or rather a pampered recluse. The general public never ceases to amaze me, and by amaze I mean ::facepalm:: I guess I should be seriously grateful I'm not in customer service. I studied forensic pathology for years in hopes of never having to work with the living. Or at least seriously minimizing my contact.Fast forward fifteen years and here I am knee deep in the general public. Last week I was asked out by an ax murderer. Well, I don't know if he … [Read more...]

Vladimir Putin Riding Things…

... I've got no excuse for this post other than I am a day drinker. Oh, and that I am suffering a bit from presidential envy.Whew. Now I need a cool down from all that unbridled masculinity. Ah, that'll do the trick. … [Read more...]

There is Never a Good Reason For Liturgical Dance…

... I loathe liturgical dance with the white hot passion of a thousand burning heretics. I don't understand it's purpose other than to keep the makers of spandex unitards in business. Even more baffling is why liturgical dance has to be performed inside a Church, a sacred space. Or even worse, during the liturgy itself.I suppose if the performers did their jigs, more appropriately, in a dance hall then it couldn't technically be called liturgical dance, now could it?But that begs the … [Read more...]

Hiss. Spit. Growl…

... I would like to take a moment to publicly thank the idiot that shut down an entire interstate during the height of the early morning commuter traffic... for a dead battery. Here, let me make this clear. Move that shit out of the road. Don't sit there taking up THREE of the four lanes of traffic while your buddy gives your battery a jump... in the middle of *@1&! interstate.Man, I wish it was socially acceptable to drink during business hours. … [Read more...]

The Saddest Commute…

... 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...]

Did Everyone Take Crazy Pills and I Miss My Dose…

... 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...]

The Liberace of the Catholic Blogosphere…

... 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…

... 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...]

I Guess It’s Settled. I’m Rome Bound…

... 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...]
