Blog, dear readers, names

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.

Christmas, dear readers, feasts

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, everyone! I’ve had quite a nice one myself. Enjoy the whole season – we’ve got a couple more weeks of it!

The St. Andrew novena is over, but I love the prayer so I’m putting it up here.

Hail and blessed be the hour and moment in which the Son of God was born of the most pure Virgin Mary, at midnight, in Bethlehem, in piercing cold. In that hour, vouchsafe, O my God! to hear my prayer and grant my desires, through the merits of Our Saviour Jesus Christ, and of His Blessed Mother. Amen.

awesomeness, Blog, dear readers, language, triumph


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


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!

a confession, Blog, dear readers, Humour, random

I have something to tell you

A confession to make. Maybe you’ve already guessed it. It’s hard to hide.

I am a nerd.

It’s true.

I have been nerdy about the following:

Star Wars
Star Trek (not so much anymore though)
Doctor Who (ditto)
The Lord of the Rings
C. S. Lewis
Heck, the Inklings in general!
G K. Chesterton
I’m in training to be a Hayao Miyazaki nerd.
Books in general
Irish music
Fonts (yes, you read that right)
And probably other things.

I have not, however, been a computer nerd. I think those are called geeks. I am not a geek. But then these fine shades of distinction are rather confusing.
