That’s right, Mr. Martini. There is an Easter Bunny…

... the post below was written under the heavy influence of NyQuil. I bet you didn't know it was even possible to hallucinate from consuming too much of that green liquid. Well, it is. And I did. There is nothing worse than being sick and wanting nothing more in the world to sleep but you can't. Instead you toss and turn and hear things that aren't there. So to calm your tired mind you blog stupid things. But I feel better today so blogging should resume as normal. And by normal I mean … [Read more...]

blah …

... sometimes I have dry spells where I don't blog for days, even weeks. I wonder if there is really anything left I can say except for a few funny anecdotes. Certainly nothing inspiring or of greater worth that can't be read elsewhere. I discovered a correlation between my musings. When I am inspired I write. Seems simple enough. But what inspires me? Beautiful music and stunning art. Clever and insightful quips from the lives of the saints. Interactions with family and friends. Time spent in … [Read more...]

there’s a snake in my boot…

... I refer to my home as the Plague of Frogs. If you venture out at night you must watch your step. Nothing is grosser than stepping on a frog barefoot. Believe me, I know. It goes without saying that my property is infested with snakes as well which, for the most part, managed to keep to themselves... until now.I was greeted by an Eastern Kingsnake while taking out the trash. My son is outside right now peeing around the perimeter of the house. I doubt it will work but he was more than … [Read more...]

you can never have enough holy water…

... my wonderful son continues to be a model of piety. Every since he learned that Catholics can baptize people in extreme circumstances he has seen fit that every animal in our home be baptize. Even the neighbor's dog. And their ferret.When he ran out of animals he decided he needed to baptize the cats again, just in case. Because they're real sneaky. His words. I tried to explain to him that you only need to be baptized once. He was thoughtful for a moment but countered my catechism lesson … [Read more...]

Camino update….

... I haven't seen the Blessed Virgin Mary in my toast yet telling me otherwise, so I suppose that means my plans to walk the Way of St. James are still on. For those who are serious about going with me, here is the information I have thus far.In October 2013, I will be walking the entire Camino Frances route, starting from St. Jean Pied de Port, on the French side of the Pyrenees and finishing about 35 days and 780km later in Santiago, Spain.Do not be dissuaded if you are unable to walk … [Read more...]

I’m number five…

... the results are in and as predicted I did not win. However, much to my surprise I came in 5th for People's Choice and Best Blog By A Woman. I was delighted to see I was 3rd in Most Entertaining, just below The Ironic Catholic. … [Read more...]

perceived persecution, negativity, and pseudo theologians, oh my…

... some time ago I enabled comment moderation. Today I disabled anonymous commenting. By removing the immediate satisfaction of having a nasty comment published the nasty comments decreased in number. And really, I'm under no obligation to publish a comment, even if you email me demanding I do so. I really don't like how the internet has created an environment conducive to combativeness. It makes it too easy for people to say things to others they would never dream of saying to someone's face, … [Read more...]
