Douthat on the Catholic Problems. The Anchoress:
"We’re in Lent; it’s Holy Week. This time of the year, it’s always something, and it’s always something that “changes everything!” If it’s not someone declaring that The Gospel of Judas (April, 2006) invalidates Christianity, then it’s someone claiming they’ve found Jesus’ casket (February, 2007). If it is not a Lent-long hype for a stupid movie, it’s the “Jesus was a racist” silliness (February, 2009)"
While I was going to Bernadette's today I heard a state legislator who wants CSUStanislaus to disclose Sarah Palin's speakers fee. A caller asked "Would they care if it was AlGore?" I want to know do they think they'd get $500 a ticket for Al Gore?
Another story, from Mark Steyn, on a Chinese guy with man-boobs... he's a dairy farmer: are there chemicals involved?
Gareth and I had a great time. We read books and talked (some: he still hasn't realized that there's a reason people make these noises. I don't think it'll be long, though.) Bernadette says she's fine, some effaced, some dilated, which sounds like maybe the little girl will be earlier than the two-weeks-from-now due date. Grandma's coming next week, so it's likely we won't need to be babysitting when the baby comes after all. That would solve a lot of problems.
Meanwhile, since his mom is coming, that should get Robert to clean up the bathroom. His "green" kitty litter is not popular with the kitties and the room is disgusting.
And today, Brian from Brian's Drapery Service came to measure my front window. 100" by 42". I'll be ordering this stuff soon.
Dude, where's my country? Somehow, I'm not surprised Phelps is a Democrat.
How to cook bacon with a machine gun.
I keep seeing John Barrowman! He was in De-Lovely. Now he's a bad guy in Desperate Housewives.
I already posted this... it's all Rich's fault. He said something about not liking Carlos' voice: I say hey, he's a grandfather sitting in his kitchen talking to the kids. How neat.
Only TV we have all seen is Owl MyChildren!
