so what else is new?

Much encouraged by other bloggers, yesterday I declared a "SNOW MORNING" and didn't come to work until noon...I had time to read the Sunday papers (including the coloured funnies), sort some laundry, tidy up a bit in the kitchen, and drive #1 Son to campus on my way into the church.
Sunday evening was intense -- great turn-out for the Lessons & Carols, crackling good reading and roof-raising singing -- and then an absolute MOB for the potluck. We had set tables for 110, and had to find two more tables before everyone could be seated...AND there was food left over.
To my great joy, the folks from St. Fearfully High attended in large numbers and STAYED in large numbers, and indeed looked comfortable and happy and well-fed. It was most gratifying. These folks have tended to be more than a little isolated from the rest of the diocese for a number of reasons...it's good to feel that we've broken that down just a little. Of course we didn't pose them any specific liturgical problems such as female celebrants, either. But it is good to know that we can do together, what we can do together!
And our friends from the Mothers-Against-Drunk-Driving had left us a couple of dozen white roses so we had flowers to give away to the kitchen volunteers at the end of the evening as well!

so this morning I tried the Spice Quiz, results below. I suppose "salt" is what I'm SUPPOSED to be, after all. Darn. I was hoping for "FENUGREEK" or something a little jazzier... Maybe all that 50%-50% is a reflection of the ever-lovin' via media too...maybe?

Your Score: Salt

You scored 50% intoxication, 50% hotness, 50% complexity, and 50% craziness!

You are Salt!

You may be bland, but life just wouldn't be the same without you. You're plentiful and you come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colours. You bring out the flavour in whatever you touch and have been the world's best preservative for millennia. You rock.

Salt of the earth, surely. You are probably fine company for a meal.

You have such a busy, good life! I'm glad you could stay home this morning. I'm fennel, which doesn't seem quite right. Salt of the earth sounds much, much better.

Auntie Knickers said...

I suspect I would have come out as salt, too, but couldn't make the site work. Glad you could have a morning off! I wish I could have attended your Lessons and Carols, but was too sick even to walk 3 blocks to our own -- made do with the St. Olaf Christmas Festival on radio.

Oh dear, auntie -- not good -- I hope you're feeling much better today. You remind me to get my 'flu' shot before we're any deeper into December!

I am a Chiltepin Pepper.

25% intoxication, 75% hotness, 50% complexity, and 0% craziness.

Damn straight.

So are you in good health? I would hate to lose the pillar.

I HAVE to try this one! :-)

And wondering, are you Episcopalian? Being a priest and all, I assume so.

Thanks for visiting my place.

And it is supposed to snow tomorrow. I think I'll take a snow day....hmmmmm
