HABEMUS PAPAM - Benedict XVI  
So odd to see another face there on the balcony, after all these years.

It is interesting indeed. Though I'm not Catholic, well, I grew up in Latin America, so, hey.

I figured you might be keeping an eye on the situation *smile*

...still messing around with the dreaded essay - some progress has been made, at least...

I commented to a cow-orker about there being a new pope. She said, "Is that the super-conservative one?" I couldn't help saying, "No, this is the hippie, queer-positive, pro-choice, wild-sex-with-lots-of-people-outside-of-marriage, hard-drinking, pot-smoking candidate..." thus proving I have a twisted sense of humour.

I am reformatting stuff and trolling for thoughts in general... and pondering the dread essay. And trying to ignore a possible pending flamewar in the crochet comm. Oy. But hey, so far, today's ahead of yesterday on many counts -- yesterday started out with oversleeping, followed by us having to give the boy an emergency haircut (or really, head-shaving) since he cut part of his own hair, and wrapped up with the boy getting a nosebleed randomly in bed, and walking across all the nearly-white carpet while dripping blood. I feel like I can't quite catch up with this week... so I'm gonna stop trying.

You have nearly white carpet? How brave of you! ;)

Unfortunately the self-barbering seems to be attractive to young boys - my baby brother indulged himself about once a year or so, and it drove my mom nuts.

"No, this is the hippie, queer-positive, pro-choice, wild-sex-with-lots-of-people-outside-of-marriage, hard-drinking, pot-smoking candidate..."

*laugh* That is priceless! Yeah, I can totally see Benedict with a water pipe...

I kinda wonder at the people who wanted a progressive pope. Do they not understand what the purpose of the Church really is? It sure as heck isn't to appease a bunch of Americans.

I have made progress on the stupid essay - I could send you the updated text (has a few more ideas thrown in, including picking a knit along project) if you want. Just give me the address, as I'm away from my address book here.
