The convert names thread reminded me of something. When I was a kid I wanted to change my name to Crystal (I thought it was a boy's name for some reason).
*wiping effluvia from computer screen*

This is the sorta thing you wait a year or two to tell your shrink.

EDIT: Remember how I said I never call people by whatever LARPing names they use in RL? Well, Crystal baby, since this was this wish of young and sincere child:

Done.
It's not that bad. I mean, if I was a kid and I didn't know Crystal was a girl's name associated with a particular undignifistaed occupation, I'd have the following associations:
Crystals give you power in video games.
Crystals probably give you power in real life. It's not like the good folks at Naughty Dog and Squaresoft would just make that up right?
Crystals have cool shapes.
Crystals are shiny.
Salt is a crystal, and it makes food delicious.
Sugar is a crystal, and it makes food delicious.
Superman's home planet is covered in crystal (I know I've ranted against this before, but my earliest exposure to Superman was all post-crisis stuff sadly) and Superman is awesome.

Of course, I'm not ruling "Volnutt has aspired to be a stripper since childhood" out of the question., in which case he probably ought to seek some therapy.

I've always loved the way crystals looked, but mostly I remember thinking being called Crystal would make me handsome and blonde.

Enough of this high-falutin' theology that the Archdiocese puts out and nobody reads or comprehends. What is urgently needed is a teaching pamphlet on the following topic:

"How To Maintain Your Sense of Stillness/Hesychia While Preparing Seafood For Dinner and Sharing a House with Multiple Cats"

And the sooner, the better!

Fr. Chris, for serious, I always laugh when I read your posts and your signature. Do you moonlight as a comedian?!  :laugh:

Random postings, eh? Well, here's something random: my favorite kind of pie is blueberry. :)
It's about time! We need more randomness.

Cherry and apple are my favorites. Although I'm partial to strudel.

I too enjoy apple and cherry pie. Chocolate eclair pie is delicious too, and the same goes for pumpkin.

Pumpkin with whipped cream is the best.  Banana Cream is second.

As a side note, is there anyone out there who can write banana without singing the No Doubt song?  I can't.

Strawberry rhubarb and I was unaware of such a song. I sometimes think of Raffi's "Banana Phone" but only because it was an internet meme.

What is a rhubarb? Is it a fruit, a vegetable, or some kind of geometric shape?

???

I guess it's a midwest thing. It's a tall plant with edible stalks and poisonous leaves that grows in people's yards like a weed.

Okay. Thanks. Think I'll stick with apple or cherry, all the same.  :)

It's the Nativity Fast... I hope we're not driving anybody crazy. ;)

Or Cat Steven's Banapple gas.  That's a weird one.

No way. That **** is bananas.

The idea of banana creme pie sounds amazing, but I can't stand cream in any form. I just love bananas.

Worst pie? Key lime. Without a doubt.

Oh yeah, I love lime flavored drinks, candy. I suck on limes, too, since I can handle how sour they are.

So, limes are awesome in everything except for pie!

That's funny, how some things are good in one form, but not in another. I don't eat eggs, but I like cake that has egg in the batter. Go figure.  :)

I love garden fresh radishes.  They are easy to grow and taste great.  I think that I am the only one in my household that thinks this way.

I can't eat tomatoes but will eat a completely pureed tomato sauce.

I can find something to eat in almost any restaurant, but I admit, I'm no fun to cook for.  :-\

Grilled cheese sandwiches?

No. No. No.

OK. You want to fry them.

My favorite:

Fried peanut butter, cheese, banana, and bacon sandwiches.

SIGH.

Decided my new avatar pic might be too racy for OC.net. Although I got it from here. It is a detail from a much larger pic . . .

ERG!

You are such a tease! Now we must know what the original picture was. Were there shoulders involved?

:mad:

Tollhouse 23. See ya there....

On my note of randomness, it is beautiful outside and I'm terribly upset that I have to work. Today would be a good day for a mile run. (Okay, with my CFS, it's more like a power walk. ;) )

We've had the like the most rain and overcastedness ever this year in forever or something.

This morning was jacket weather (30F), so I was wearing a hooded sweatshirt.

Of all the insulting celebrities I have been compared to, this one took the cake:

Some one quipped: Look here comes the Ghost of Christmas Future.

More pale than ever. Thinner than ever. etc.

But today the sun is out and I have to actually be in the salt mines till sundown.

What on Earth is going on in that thing? Abortion, women with fishnets, Jesus or someone on the lower left with no beard, a child's leg broke off in the mother's lap?  ??? ??? Uh... canonical, anyone?

You two need to quit griping about the weather.  I'm getting tired of snow.
