St John the Baptist

St John the Baptist: The feast of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist is one of the oldest feasts in the liturgy of the Church. Unlike other saints whose feast days are usually celebrated on the anniversary of their deaths — considered the day they entered into final glory — St. John’s feast day is the day of …

SO SWEET

A guy proposed to his GF in the park and she said yes. It was also a couple hundred feet from the scene of the robbery.

TODAY IS THE FEAST OF ST. ALOYSIUS

St. Aloysius Gonzaga, S.J.: St. Aloysius Gonzaga (1568-1591) was a young man who experienced his faith as something more important than the worldly concerns of life. He lived in Renaissance Italy, a time noted for its high cultural achievements and low moral standards. Because he was born of a noble family, Aloysius was very familiar with court life, serving …

They named a church after him. And a school.

SAW THE STRAWBERRY MOON

Last one was in 1967, next one will be in 2062. Didn't look like anything special to me--just another full moons. With all these moons having special designations it makes them seem less special.

I WONDER HOW MANY PREGNANT WOMEN GO INTO PREMATURE LABOUR ON METRO BUSSES/TRAINS.

Not only that, but even in 90+ degree heat some busses didn't have A/C. Or at least not much of it.

RIP CLAIRE SCHULTZ

She taught history at Immaculata until she was 72, I was thinking of her over the weekend. There are some teachers whom you never forget: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/dailylocal/obituary.aspx?n=claire-schultz&pid=180370683&fhid=4453&eid=sp_ommatch

IT'S BEEN OVER A MONTH THAT I WAS ON CHANNEL FOUR AND PEOPLE ARE STILL GIVING ME COMPLIMENTS

Someone told me I would make a good spokesperson for the downtrodden .

SAW THE MOVIE MRS. WINTERBORN

Ricki Lake says she wants to pay for an attorney for the killer of her abusive ex-boyfriend. Made me think of Omar Mateen’s wife who said he abused her. And apparently was also questioning his own sexuality. Living with him must have been hell. 

Happy First Day of Summer!

The Cleveland Cavaliers are the winner of the 2016 NBA title.

IT'S WEIRD WALKING WITHOUT A CANE

Or crutch (es)

THE ORLANDO SHOOTINGS WERE ONE WEEK AGO TODAY

Like all those who have experienced a traumatic event, for the victims, survivors, their family and friends there will a "before" and "after," just as for me there was a before/after the robbery, breaking my foot, the surgery...

TODAY IS WORLD SICKLE CELL DAY

I think I've only met one or two sickle cell patients in my life. The prognosis is a lot better than it was when I was a kid: http://jamaica-gleaner.com/article/outlook/20160619/world-sickle-cell-day-i-came-home-die

I HATE SPEAKER PHONES

And I want to talk to someone under 90. If you hate people who call in to radio/TV shows think of me--I talk to the ones who don't get through.

IT'S A BEAUTIFUL NIGHT IN ADAMS MORGAN

On nights like this I realize how lucky I am to live here.  And hope not to have to move.

SILENCE IS GOLDEN?

Some guy is belching behind me in the library. Repeatedly. And there are people making all kinds of foul coughs. I wonder how much healthier a library is than a hospital.

SUCH A LOVELY PLACE, STARBUCKS IN YOUR FACE

Saw this on the Georgetown campus:



I'm such a ditz I thought it said "Hotel California."

On the bright side, I don't have to see the cardiologist for the next six months.

IT SEEMS BAD THINGS SOME IN THREES

Especially for Orlando. Christina Grimmie killed over the weekend, then the shootings and now a little kid attacked by an alligator at the Grand Floridian.
