I'm going to be a godmother | It was so cute how many people were wearing green yesterday. I wish everyone wore green every day. | But at the pub last night the "green" was decidedly more obnoxious | There has been a grapefruit sitting on my desk for 2 weeks now. | My to-do list is 3 pages long and totally illegible. | Going to the theater with my favorite theater buddies, one visiting from Colorado. | We're seeing Oscar Wilde. I love him. | Calling your home parish when you haven't been registered at a parish for five years feels like going to confession when you haven't gone to confession for five years. | On the plus side, my new pastor said he'd vouch for me, but only if I went to confession more than once a year. | (He was teasing. Sort of. I love him.) | Oh, Japan. It's been a week. My heart aches for you. | "Even among these rocks, our peace in His will." | I get to meet, finally, Myrna's best friend today. We'll get her to DC semi-permanently yet. | Turns out my favorite quote from An Ideal Husband is not actually from the play: "To look at a thing is very different from seeing it, for one never sees anything till one sees it's beauty." | In ten days I am going to have a spiritual daughter. I don't even know where to begin to prepare for this. | But I pray I will see her, and, in some small way teach her to see. | I do know exactly what I'm going to buy my goddaughter.| "I thought at least she'd be good for a present." | (Bet you can't guess.) | The age old question on a Friday in Lent: pizza or thai? | I need a new mug and a new pair of heels. | #1 priority while shopping for these two items: comfort. | Yes. Mugs can be comfortable. (Shoes, on the other hand...) | There's a Facebook meme going around: "Name the first five friends on your profile. They are your Zombie army. Will you survive?" | My first four FB friends are my mom, sister, brother, and grandmother. | Yes, I'll survive. | I can't wait till my goddaughter is older and I can tell her about how her mom was my first friend. | In the meantime, I'm going to go eat my grapefruit.
