This morning I woke up a little early (i.e. 5:30 a.m.) and attended 6 a.m. Mass at St. Ferdinand Parish in Florissant so I could drive my sister and her friend to the the airport. On the way there and back I whipped out my trusty 'ol iPod, plugged it into my car's stereo (via a cassette adaptor), and listened to the new Thérese Movie Soundtrack ($15.95 on the Thérese Gift Shop).

I am truly stunned by the media today.
The stupidity, distance from reality and inconsistencies in thought really throw me off when it comes to the mainstream media outlets.

Some Academy Awards hopefuls had strong weekend showings:
The Aviator, starring Leonardo DiCaprio as billionaire Howard Hughes, expanded into 1,796 screens and took in $9.4 million for fourth place.
The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou played in 1,105 theaters with $4.9 million for No. 9.
The Phantom of the Opera wasNo. 10 with $4.2 million on 622 screens.

A front-page article in the St. Louis Review: Siblings Make Wristbands for Life

Have a Merry Christmas!
