SPEAKING OF BEERS AND CHURCH

Next time you nip up the weckershams to the pub, you may have to consider a career change.

First!

"Cardinal Murphy-O'Connor will make the plea in Westminster on Sunday, as part of ambitious plans to reform the diocese."

Great. Beer mats to attract priests. Leave it to an Irish priest (Murphy AND O'Connor) to consider alcohol as a resource. (I'm Irish so I can say it.)

If they think this will work, why not post billboards at playgrounds.

Just saying...

And if you miss the first pub just pop 'round the gorn-and-scumbles, and, Jack's a doughnut, there you are!

Way to go, Marie!

Drunken Priests: It's What's for Dinner

*hick*
"Schhine me up-p."

note to recruits under this plan: "Pater nosters" does not rhyme with "Foster's"!

and, no, you can't rename Wednesday night Mass, 'Ladies Night: Two For One Confessions'

It's just not a glamour profession anymore. In the olden days, with massive corruption, a priest could have a wife and 8 kids, and still misappropriate enough church funds to keep a couple of lavish mistresses on the side.

Then they started halfass enforcing the celibacy thing, and it all fell apart. People figured you had to be kind of wrong to be a priest, and nowadays, people would bet hard money on you being a church-endorsed pedophile. Sure, you can't get married, but if you touch a few choirs of kids, they just ping pong ball you to the next parish.

I remember on career day, way back in high school, talking to the priest because nobody else would. He had a very lonely table, and he looked about twenty. He was funny and cheerful, although you could not forget there was a collar present. It was hard not to stare at it.

Later, everybody pounced on me to ask what was wrong with him...

Call me silly, but how desperate are they, now openly encouraging the dunken louts to sign up? "Come here, no one else wants you! And no one else will have us! We're a better match than single and malt!"

I had a thing I was going to say about altar boys being under legal drinking age, but I think I will not say it after all, and attempt to preserve what eyelash-sized chance I have at avoiding Hell for at least a little bit longer.

Well, I guess my birthday this year was so dull that nothing got blogged that day. I'll have to settle on this thread.

Let's see. I hate my job. I'm not in the mood to read. I have all sorts of stuff that I need to do around the house. Especially the grass. My car died. The friends I have are all crazy. Money worries me more than anything else. Family... annoying, mostly. And yet... I love my life.

I want to break free. I need to. Focus. Determination. I can do it. Free. I'm free. As of this moment, I'm free.

Make it so.

Ha ha! Mine! All mine! MINE!

... and of COURSE I've moved into a thread about beer. heh heh

Nothing to see here. Move along.

Okay, I'm about 95% complete on my web site. I should be able to complete it tonight, and upload everything. This will make it a lot easier to add content and keep the pages all the same.

Next, I'll have to concentrate on actually adding content (photo albums especially), and maybe come up with a look that I like better. There's just something not-quite-right about the current look.

Football draft is THIS Saturday? Holy snikes. I'm soooo not ready.

I think I have all the document updates done. Now I have to wrap up testing.

I owe $8.00 in fines at the library. Dios Mio. I wonder where that DVD is? It has to be in the family room somewhere. Perhaps I can return it tonight. If I remember. Ha ha. Fat chance.

I returned it. Paid my fine. All is well. Got two more DB books.

I should annotate them. All of them. I'd know everything about them that way.

Boring.

It was a lot easier than I thought. Old habits don't die hard... they just die.

You suck!

I know! So do you!

Must be Monday.

Week one, and I won! Woo hoo for me!

August? That was a long time.
