there’s already a patron saint for lost causes…

... in the past I've been accused of having a martyr complex. If I do, it's only because I really really want to make it to Heaven and I will welcome any sure shot I can get. Martyrdom is the quickest route, or so I hear.Remember that heart attack I had during mass and how pissed I was I didn't get whisked to glory straight away after receiving Communion? I mean, come on!

it’s almost funny, if it weren’t so terrible sad…

... this week has been a rather unfortunate one, full of mishaps and malfunctions. Last week, a perfectly nice gentleman I was acquainted with asked me to join him for dinner. I happily accepted.

Luckily I had foresight enough to write down the phone number to the store. Here is what happened next:Dude: "'Sup.
