Woo. Long day. I don't know when the last time I attended a 2 1/2 hour long Catholic service was. What's that, never? Yes, well. I went to see my father-in-law enter the church, or, as I put it, become "Catholicized" after 37 years of being a good not-Catholic around the church. Go him!

Random thoughts I had during the service:

Jesus invented the three-day weekend. Called in dead on Friday, was better in time for work on Monday.

The litany of the saints would be much cooler, if done in a Pokemon Rap style. I still swear the priest was making some of them up.

Jesus was a great poker player even from birth. Why, while in the manger, he had a full house: three Kings, and a pair of Jews.

Don't hurt me. I respect the religion, but my thoughts are whimsical. I shared them with the priest, (except the last one) and he was highly amused.

Tired now. :>

Hey, I found out recently my mother joined the Catholic Church after all those years of being nastily anti-Catholic in front of us kids. Not that she told me, but my grandmother told me Mom's been quietly going to Mass for a couple years now.

I say, go them!

My sentiment exactly. All of the people at the church we attend (by that, I mean, the church the in-laws attend, and to which I go several times a year for my religion checkup in the company of my dear wife) are very nice, very welcoming people. I don't really do organized religion, but there are days when I figure Catholicism, as practiced by some folks, wouldn't be too bad.

Except for the no meat on Fridays during Lent thing. :>

So it's good people are happy. :>

hee! see, now I'm going to be thinking things like that all day tomorrow, while I work at the house of a charming Catholic woman who hired me...

it's just a good thing she has a good sense of humour

let's hope I can avoid trying to write the pokemon rap version, for that matter..

Someday I would like to see a list of all the really irreverent things that people have been thinking of during services. I know my mind wanders all the time. ;)

Hey I know this is really random, but I was wondering... how does one go about trying to find contact information for an author?

I've had randomer. :>
It depends on the author. Sometimes, Google will dredge it up, or they'll have a website, or an LJ. Sometimes, you might have to go through their publisher. Anyone in particular?
