Considering new blog

Well, everyone, there is a new poll in the sidebar. I am considering moving my ‘serious’ writing to a new blog (i. e. book/movie reviews, essays, poetry, etc.) and keeping my more subjective writings here (i. e. memes, spinning/knitting, personal updates, etc). What do you think?  Please go ahead and vote.

 I’m also considering names. Preferably something memorable and not cutesy.

Also, what would you think if I assumed an actual pen name? I was thinking my first name, Margaret, and then a last name stolen from P. G. Wodehouse… which hopefully wouldn’t violate any copyright laws… say, Margaret Fink-Nottle? Something which no one could possibly mistake for my real last name.

Blog

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I pretty much wasted Christmas vacation as far as the blog goes. I did read the first Hunger Games book recently, and I may do a review of it soon (my feelings about it were mixed, incidentally). So more to come.

Blog, prayer

Novena

I subscribe to a free Catholic email service called Pray More Novenas which sends email reminders of various novenas (about one every month or two) every day it is said, with the prayers. I find it very useful and recommend it; and as they just sent out another email asking that bloggers post about the next novena (to St. Jude), I didn’t see any reason not to do so.

So here’s the address:
praymorenovenas.com

Accomplishment!

I, gentle reader, have coined a new word. I even Googled it to make sure it didn’t exist.

Neotheophobe

Neo=new, theo=God, phobe=one who is afraid. I coined it to refer to those unfortunate New Atheists (Philip Pullman in particular), whom I hope earnestly you have never heard of, because they are wretched and ruin people’s days, besides having a fascinating ignorance of philosophy.

Spread the word! Use it whenever you get a chance (which will hopefully not be too often)! Use it whenever you talk about New Atheists to your friends in the midst of your delightful philosophical conversations!

July daybook

 Date… Tuesday, July 26, 2011 A. D.

Starting time… 9:34 AM

Mood… contented.

Outside my window… it’s… CLOUDY?!

I’m thinking… what the heck? It’s CLOUDY?!

I’m reading… well, yesterday I began The Heir of Redclyffe by Charlotte M. Yonge.

I’m listening to… Tell Me Ma by Gaelic Storm. “I’ll tell me ma when I go home, the boys won’t leave the girls alone/They pull my hair, they stole my comb…”

I’m wearing… A brown t-shirt that says “Pure Heart” in pink and a verse citation that I can’t read in this light but refers to a Psalm, and the black skirt I usually wear for this auspicious monthly occasion.
 
Yesterday, I… attended a Latin Novus Ordo Mass, made homemade bread, chatted with my friends after Mass, and almost-semi-freaked out about something to do with the approaching school year.

I’m excited for… going to the TLM this Sunday (by the way, if I ever say that I’m excited for school to begin, give me a good slap in the combox).

I’m sad because… It will be ages until I see Christendom again. 😥

I’m hungry for… doughnuts?

The song stuck inside my head is… Sweet Afton by Nickel Creek.

I want… to dance! I want to move! I need to feel the rush of the wind under my shoes!
Ahem. That was a relapse into VeggieTales.

I love… my new knitting project.

I loathe… school…….at least the math/science portion of it.

This week, my goal is… this question does not attain the dignity of a reply.
