Let’s see some homework. Note that the “g” in today’s word is soft, pronounced like a “j” as in John Kerry’s pronunciation of Jenjis Khan.

I fear the news that Lebron James is organizing an NBA boycott is slowly turning me into a hypergelast!

hypergelast — the final person in a group to use a particular high colonic.

Good morning - although not newsworthy, I used to have stepsisters who were hypergelasts. They were dumb as posts to begin with but would laugh at anything - in the middle of a sentence - at inappropriate things. We were always stunned at the giggling fools.

You could say that Santa Claus is both hypergelastic AND hypergelatinous, the latter with regard to his expansive midsection…

He says many good things, i have not given up on him. I think that it’s good when they explain what the mind-set was at the time, Father Etsio will do that too, in his homilies. He will explain that at the time, this group was not talked to by that group, or was looked down upon for such and such a reason. These kinds of things we would not necessarily know. Which is why i had no problem with the alien analogy as a way to explain the outlandishness of preaching to the Gentiles, back in those days. I really do no think he spoke with the intent of being taken literally in that regard.

Chaput was working to make that happen. xsfiance’s parents were talking about how the mayor of Philly went to Rome and met with the Pope, and he was going to ask him to come too. They said it was ridic bc they literally broke in with live programming on local philly TV, of the audience, as if the Pope was going to give his answer on the spot.

Turning into a hypergelast
Has become a common sight
For Obama’s many minions
When questioned day or night

Any one of many inquiries
That are thrown their way-
A zoned-out look is first,
Then they start to bray

A very nervous laugh to defer
Any attention from the fact
They have no honest answers
But it is all just an act...

The left loves this pope, not bc they love him and his faith, but bc they can mock him. They take so many things he says and does and use it to strike at the church. I grow weary of it, and think that the pope could do more to use caution in what he says and does. That being said, I do believe that God can use this to His advantage, I just do not see it as yet.

Gov Corbett was going to hit the pope up for a visit as well, but his audience got nixed at the last minute.

How cool did it get at your place last night? It was 48 at 6am here-Husky girl was so happy she wouldn’t stop jumping around until we went all the way down to the river...

It is supposed to get down to the low 40’s tonight...

Everything is on schedule. The bridesmaid dresses have come in and were sent to out of towners. The IRELAND one was finally picked up last week , after much concern about its whereabouts. Xshub insured it and asked for tracking which must have prompted a duty to be paid on it which required Mary Liz to go to the PO to get it. So we were sweating that. Two other bridesmaids exchanged theirs between them a 4 was tight on one and a 6 a bit loose on the other so the trade worked well. And for some reason I had a brain fart and ordered a size 8 for xsbaby thinking that was the size she had tried on at the bridal salon, when I looked at the cellphone pic I had taken I saw she’d tried a 12! But I discovered this only after she tried it on and it zipped but she can’t breathe well in it at this point. She’s been dieting since the start of lent and obv lost significant weight. If she loses just a bit more in the next 4 mo she should be able to breathe comfortably!
