SAW "ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS."

Anne Hathaway is hot, Helena Bonham Carter got a bum deal.

STUPID AUTOCORRECT

I tried to type "fuck you" and it made it "duck you." Like when I was in grad school and it made "bullshit" into "belched."

TODAY IS THE FEAST OF ST. RITA--PATRONESS OF THE IMPOSSIBLE:

St. Rita of Cascia: In 1381, St. Rita was born in Spoleto, Italy, to elderly parents who were such examples of Christian charity that they were known as “Peacemakers of Jesus Christ.” As devout as they were, however, they seem to have been somewhat misguided when they insisted on St. Rita’s marriage, at the age of 12, to a …

WE SING TO YOU O'CONNELL HIGH

We sing your praises to the sky
Your colours blue and grey we’ll cheer
We’ll keep your standards ever dear

Chorus:

O’Connell High School, praise to your name
In every student’s heart you’ve won your lasting fame
Through all the years to come
Lighting the way
O’Connell High traditions with us will stay

O’Connell sportsmanship will shine
O’Connell loyalty is fine
No matter what the game or test
O’Connell spirit is the best

Chorus:

O’Connell High School, praise to your name
In every student’s heart you’ve won your lasting fame
Through all the years to come
Lighting the way
O’Connell High traditions with us will stay

The O’Connell High School song, author unknown to me (lyrics as I remember them)

The O’Connell High School Fight Song:

O’Connell High, we’re loyal
O’Connell High, we’re true
O’Connell High ,we love you
And your colours grey and blue
Fight, fight, fight!

O’Connell High, we love you
Everybody knows we do
So we’ll fight, fight, fight
With all our might
O’Connell, for you.

Again, author unknown to me. One of my girlfriends said “your dreary colours grey and blue.”

The Immaculata University song:

High reared upon thy noble hill
Immaculata!
Could I to thee bring aught of ill
Immaculata!
Thy colors shining white and blue
To them unshaken I’ll be true;
Nor coward faithless to thy trust
Low drag them soiled in the dust,
Immaculata!
Thy halo rich in golden light,
Immaculata!
Cheers on the traveler of the night
Immaculata!
Thy mem’ry fair as any star
When from thy gates I’ve wandered far
Let be a beacon ever bright
To guide my footsteps in the night,
Immaculata!

Words: Reverend Anthony J. FIynn, PhD. Music: Sister Immaculee, I.H.M.

And the unofficial St. James school song:
Give a cheer, give a cheer
For the men who drink the beer
In the cellar of good old St. James
They’re so brave, they’re so bold
All the liquor they can hold
In the cellar of good old St. James
For it’s run, run, run
I think I hear a nun
Grab all the beer that you can hold
If a nun should appear
Say Sister have a beer
In the cellar of good old St. James
Author unknown to me


But seriously, all jokes aside, I am touched by the kindness and generosity shown by my classmates from elementary through undergraduate school. The Sisters Servants of IHM taught us well.

A GUY ON THE TRAIN WAS WEARING SOME COLOGNE I REALLY LIKED.


I asked what it was and he said "China Musk." I thought he said "China Bus."

If someone smells good I feel as though I could follow them all day. I felt that way about two women I worked with. China Musk is unisex. A guy in Columbia heights gave me a good deal on a bottle. I can still smell it on my jacket. 

THE RAPTURE WAS SUPPOSED TO TAKE PLACE ON THIS DAY FIVE YEARS AGO.

During my shift yet. Yet I'm still here. And you are too, if you are reading this. 

INTERESTING MORNING

Got messages from one drunk, one foot fetishist and a bunch of probable scammers. 

I wonder if other Armenians are embarrassed by the Kardashians.

If my doctor tells me I'm going deaf the first thing I'll do is get a bird.

ONE OF THE MOST LUCID THINGS I'VE SEEN ON FACEBOOK IN A WHILE

"Just some random thoughts about facebook and diversity of opinions. I belong to any number of discussion groups on facebook, one in particular is dedicated to exploring most any issue from all sides. In such a forum it is expected that personal beliefs and views are challenged with counter evidence, opinion, theory, etc.
All of us have diverse personal opinions and beliefs, it is part of our individuality and makes the world an exciting and interesting place. And all of us are fully entitled to our own personal opinions and beliefs. When I read through my facebook newsfeed, I see countless opinions, memes, cartoons, etc. expressing views different than my own - everything from politics to religion to dietary habits to general outlook on life. I respect everyone's right to have views different from mine. Only in groups dedicated to exploring issues do I think it is appropriate to challenge anyone's views. That's fair, and those who belong expect this.
But when I read comments from someone who has views different than mine, and those views are expressed on their own home page, I would no more dream of jumping in and challenging those views than I would if I were to say overhear a conversation at a supermarket and jump in even if I knew the person talking. I most assuredly do not think I have all the right answers any more than anyone else. And I most assuredly do not "live to challenge." I simply make a mental note of the differences, sort of assemble a group of those holding views similar to mine, and those who probably don't, but either way I move on!
It always amazes me the sheer number of people on facebook who do seem to live for challenge. Every time I post something on my home page, I can almost count on a small group of people trying to argue with me about my own beliefs!
Guess what? It's a waste of your time and mine. You are most assuredly not going to change my mind, and I have no interest whatsoever in changing yours. So please, have some mutual respect. When I post something you agree with, give me a thumbs up. If you disagree, do consider simply shrugging your shoulders (hey we're not all as enlightened as you), and move on!
Amen."
