"Ordain a Lady" - Thérèse of Lisieux is not impressed

I noticed this video yesterday, featuring a nasally rendition of Call Me Maybe by the Women's Ordination Conference (not worth a link):

Quotables:

  • "Excommunication, I'm still glowing."
  • "[I] don't listen to St. Paul."
  • "We want our Church back."

Notably, comments were disabled sometime this morning, after over 300 comments were posted yesterday witfully deriding the lunacy of the video (additionally, the negative ratings were beating positive ratings 2:1). I guess the Women's Ordination Conference can dish it out, but can't take the heat.

The video mentions St. Thérèse of Lisieux, and says that like her "I need to give this a whirl." Looking at the WOC's website, I found the following:

Catholic Memes

I meant to post this sooner, just never had time to get around to it... there's a new Catholic Meme site around, aptly named Catholic Memes. An example of what you'll find browsing the site:

Wonka Meme - Catholic Meme - Church teaching

There's tons more where that came from. The site is a bit like an expanded LOLSaints; whereas LOLSaints.com centers around the lives of the saints, and incorporates little snippets of info about each saint pictured, Catholic Memes puts the message in the meme. Some may call that a bit more shallow, but I think they're funny nonetheless—with a healthy dose of sarcasm!

Rally Squirrel Says "Relax..."

Got this in my email inbox this morning, and couldn't resist posting it here. Though I'm very much not in favor of animated gifs in general, this one isn't too bad :)

Rally Squirrel - Relax
Kind of reminds me of this relaxing squirrel.

This year's World Series has been awesome; last night's walk-off home run by our hometown hero David Freese was one of the best moments in baseball this year!

Dreaming in Drupal

How do you know you've been thinking about work too much? When your wife relates a conversation she had with you in the morning, and you don't remember a word, but can definitely see how what you said relates to what you're working on:

Saith my wife: "Jeff, how do you set your alarm?"

My (groggy) reply: "Hit field, the arrow, then default."

Now, this could possibly have something to do with alarm clocks. There are often arrows on them, and you hit buttons... but I know better. I was referring to:

$this->addFieldMapping('field', 'source')->defaultValue(0);

...which I have probably typed about 100 times in the past week, and maybe 20 or so last night during a late-night debugging session with the Migration process of flockNote v2 to v3 (from a proprietary WAMP-based system to a new Drupal 7 LAMP-based system).
