Sheer Lunacy

Precisely why I fly under the radar:

December 16, 2007
NO. LIE.

And then there was the STRAWBERRY INCIDENT.

I am sorry this picture wasn't clearer. Sorta. The batteries were almost dead. The camera was accidentally set to "Scene" -- most likely by the intervention of the Holy Spirit. I have a LOT to say about this one. But if you want to know the dish, you will have to write me privately. By all means, feel free to leave a comment. I'd love to read them.

Dude... what is up with the Christmas decorations already????


OIE VEY!

swissmiss said...

I'm confused...must be missing something! Don't know what you are hinting at. I need a clue...please write me at swiss-miss at att dot net

Unless it's the decorations that are causing you to mutiny or something. Sorry to say that I think those palm tree-like decorations need to go the way of the tree in Mr. Roberts (one of the few movies I've seen!).

KAT *precisely*

Swiss: you got it. :-D But your eye sight is missing something very obvious.

Karen, I can't see the picture!

Adrienne said...

Even though I feel like I am suffering from macular degeneration, it would appear that they have purple on the altar (at first I thought it was a coffin) juxtaposed with Christmas decorations. Purple is the liturgical color for advent and the rest screams Christmas. Is this your church?? Have they gone mad??

gemoftheocean said...

Adrienne, yes. Precisely. Digi. Look at all those pointsettias [sp!]
To say I felt like throwing them all in the street before Mass is an overwhelming understatement.

Karen,

No, I literally could not see the picture because it was not loading. Now it has. Holy martyrology, Batman! That's a LOT OF RED!

ArchAngel's Advocate said...

Karen, were you so angry that were seeing red? Or had you hit the sacramental wine so that your vision was blurred and bloodshot? Maybe your parish needs an Ensign Pulver!

gemoftheocean said...

AA: The diocese needs a bishop who has a brain.

Digi, drop me a line on gmail so I can fill you in too. It's a dilly.

ArchAngel's Advocate said...

Karen, the men with brains aren't getting ordained these days. They are either too smart to take up the hassle, or are being kept out by those who don't want thinkers with Roman collars.

gemoftheocean said...

I totally agree with you. Too many knuckleheads, not enough heads. This particular "issue" is due to an unreconstructed stealth hippy. seems orthodox enough on the outside, give him a little power, a few key positions -- a weak bishop -- is it any wonder our diocese is literally bankrupt due to incompetence? All I'd like is for Rome to pop its pasta fazoo head up and give the long suffering people of San Diego some relief. I don't care WHAT they have to do to clean house.... just. DO. IT. That's ALL I want for Christmas. Really, a Vatican that cares about my particular corner of the world. We;ve suffered long enough from this horsebleep.

Do you think it would look better if we used 3-D glasses? I'm just sayin...

gemoftheocean said...

Thorn, it would look better if you used one of those hoity toity sleeping mask domino things. I'd have put a bag over my head, but I had to read from the lectionary and help with Communion. So help me I SHOULD have told the pastor: "Okay, WHO are you, and WHAT did you do with Father X?" I was --><-- THAT close...
