1. I’m a big kid now!
My blog is now http://secretvaticanspy.com. I’m having geeky fits of glee over the fact that I own a domain. Don’t judge me – I’ve wanted one since I was ten years old. No, really. I was always a nerd.
2. Join the resistance!
Earlier this week I mentioned Project Vatican Hit List. I was going to upload the preliminary list tonight, but quite frankly, I left the grease-stained notebook in my car and it is in the thirties. I am nice and comfortable in my warm cozy bed, and do not feel the slightest bit compelled to run and retrieve said list. I have a few books that are calling my name, and they shall get the attention they so desperately crave as soon as I upload this post.
All that to say, we would love to have you join us. Several of you mentioned not being able to commit to daily mass, because you have to do trivial and carnal things like, oh, I don’t know – RUN HOUSEHOLDS AND RAISE BABIES. Pssh. I jest. There will be alternatives, and tomorrow when the sun is shining and I am no longer tired, grumpy, and literature deprived I will throw a few suggestions out to y’all.
3. Best song ever.
Skip ahead to 1:11 if you want to skip the introduction. It’s cute, guys. The rosary line is my favorite.
4. Speaking of rosaries. . .
I’ve been making rosaries for the Vatican Hitlist. I’m getting pretty good at them, which is surprising because I’m, um, how you say, completely uncrafty in almost every possible way. I’ll add pictures later.
5. I was wrong!
The Rite of Acceptance is THIS Saturday, which is all sorts of goose-bump inducing – it is exactly one year TO THE DAY that I decided to give this whole Catholic thing a go, and asked my soon-to-be-godmother if I could accompany her family to Mass the next day (Christ the King Sunday). I can’t believe it’s already/only been a year.
6. My boyfriend is awesome.
Eli has been writing like a mad-man over at Practical Catholic. I mean that in the amount written and time spent doing so sense, not the gee-I’m-dating-a-wild-man way. You should stop by and say hi. He’s far more articulate than I am.
7. It’s Thanksgiving season!!
I can already taste my momma’s absolutely sinful Thanksgiving dinner. I wish I had a TARDIS so I could revisit Thanksgiving day every single day of the year.
