Starting off Sunday fluff

We've gone to church, watching Meet The Press, took ground beef out of my freezer for meatballs, jotting notes down for the week then planning for the week ahead, clip coupons, and planning to watch the Cleveland Browns/Bengals game later, Ultimate rivals!  Lol! 

How is your Sunday going?

"I think non-Catholics should buy their own sympathy cards and take the time to sincerely pray their own prayers." So do I, but there is nothing to prevent one from doing both; offerein masses for the souls of the deceased seems to bring comfort to the relatives of my deceased friends.

Kickboxing is really great for toning. I love that I can do it now twice a week.

My "work" is often not physically done in the office. I can be reading on a park bench or grading papers at Starbucks and be "at work." Again, a very limited perspective about "work" and "working hours."

I very much like Pope Francis so far.

You really want my teaching schedule? OK, it is public info: 11-11:50 and 1-1:50 MWF, and 2-3:15 TT/Th. In addition I direct an honors tutorial and a Freshman Fellow: we meet Tuesdays at 11 am for about an hour. I have several administrative commitments during the week that tie me up specific hours. Other than that, my work time is flexible.

Yes, I have purchased mass cards many times for the souls of deceased friends.

I think that's tacky. But you have the etiquette books written by previous Popes I guess.

 

Lol. 

Bord, I know you've had some pretty strong things to say about the last pope's resignation.  What do you think of Pope Francis?  Any thoughts?  I think he's a pretty amazing man and I think he's here to stay...

Really well said.  When I worked, I worked.  I didn't quibble over this hour is mine, that is the employer's.  When employees are too afraid to ask their employer personally if they can play on the internet during work, the answer is obvious.  When employees hide behind the fact that the employer hasn't specifically forbidden Facebook and iVillage in writing, again the answer is obvious.  It's interesting the defenders of playing on the internet at work often work for a public institution, read : it's only the taxpayers' money. Wink
