I read this on Fark, it was a winner in some kind of twitter contest I think.


CNN lost all bowel control on Monday, we're down to the really squeaky, empty farts now.

Me membership star is missing

I am almost positive it was there but it seems to have vanished. Could you please put it back. Thanks.

A great speach by Glenda Jackson, MP about Maggie Thatcher.

She is such a great speaker and was one of my favorite actors.

The magic of Aurora Borealis.

I do not know if this has been shared before, I just saw it today and thought it had to be shared:

I think 60,000 annulments a year is quite a significant number.

Too many for even them. They are even thinking of closing that little racket down: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/deaconsbench/2012/05/loose-canon-vatican-may-tighten-rules-on-annulments/

and apparently, a divorced catholic can, under the very special circumstances that would technically meet all the archaic rules they rely on so much, RECEIVE COMMUNION. I am shocked.

"The fact is, the Church does not teach that Catholics are forbidden to receive Holy Communion if they are divorced. Rather, it teaches that a Catholic who has been divorced and remarried, without having first obtained an annulment of the first marriage, is not permitted to receive the Eucharist"

I am getting more sure that I do know what I am talking about.

btw, I hope you consider this to be a lighthearted back and forth. I am an ex catholic and I know that the church brought a lot of joy to my mother and father as well as to many other members of the family. So I am glad it did that but my faith is long gone.

It is television shows like this that make me feel like a complete failure.

I was watching "Army Wives" which I watch regardless of the fact that is is completely removed from any real life reality. This young child was rushed to the ER because of complications in his medical condition around supper time. His mother sits in the waiting room, wearing the most beautiful color gloss lipstick, make-up so perfect that it was magazine photo ready and her hair was perfect.

I thought of the odds of looking like that when I was younger when I had to suddenly leave the house because of some kind of emergency. I know for a fact that "Art does not imitate life."
