I left my bowling shoes in the car overnight and it was 2 degrees F. Boy was that a rude experience when I went bowling last night.

We went bowling the night before our wedding, no stag (ette) parties for us.

Hey, that's 1600 posts.

My hockey equipment has been sitting out in -20 (celcius) weather all day...putting on that jockstrap will take some courage. I wish they'd at least put some more heat in the change rooms!

The other night the phone rang and it was for me and my flatmate brought the cordless phone to my room. I opened the door to take the phone and he jumped back about a metre in fright - I forgot about the white clay face-mask I had on!

I kind of like the new collaboration of the former Rage members and Chris Cornell in Audioslave. I miss Soundgarden....

And they'll be touring in a new Lolapalooza this year!

I am lukewarm to it. Some songs are good, but others seem like album filler. It is nice to hear Chris Cornell singing the way he did on the early Soundgarden albums.

Yeah, its OK. Its kind of unspectacular - it reminds me of what some successful local band would sound like who is "influenced by Soundgarden and Rage Against the Machine." After 10 years, Rage had developed such a formula that you didn't need to listen to any new songs anymore. I'm one of the few people who liked Chris Cornell's solo album - I like him better as a songwriter than a screamer.

Audioslave is similar to Billy Corgan's new band Zwan. Two bands with members of groups that rocked in the early nineties (Smashing Pumpkins, Rage, and Soundgarden) trying to recaptrure some of the magic. Unfortunatly, I think that is what this new Lolapalooza will become. As much as i liked Janes Addiction 10 years ago, I can't imagine there is a huge demand to see them now.

My Volvo has an OHV cam. The engine is a non-interference engine. This means that if the timing belt were to break the pistons would not strike any full extended valves. If I were to purchase and install the "VX" cam from ipd and shave the heads 3 mm, the engine would ingest itself in any timing belt mishap. Thus it would become an "interference" engine.

Most high revving rice racer engines fail due to interference and "valve float" occurring at high RPMs. The addition of NOS doesn't help.

How much longer is the pope going to live?

When child abusing priests go to prison, do they shower with a soap-pope-on-a-rope?

Got Catholic issues, Brian? I have a few myself. Maybe we could talk elsewhere about this item. ;)

An associate had a Baptist neighbor who was always denouncing "Popery." She thought the Pope was satan. Anyway for years my associate thought she hated that dried flower concoction you women like. And could never make the connection between it and religion.

I remember in High School going with my friends to look at all of the Catholic School girls in their kilts.

I gave up the Catholic church in 1987 when my god daughter was born. The priest initially wouldn't allow me to be the godfather because I didn't attend church often enough. My sister pitched a hissy and told him she'd find a church that would accept me as the godfather. He recanted and decided that perhaps for a larger cotribution to the church he would allow it.

Case closed. You blew it twice, buddy:
1. Extortion.
2. Going 180 on your values.

I only go to church for weddings and funerals now.

I can beat that one,

I have an application on my desk from a church for a project. I told them what they had to do. They asked me to a meeting at the church, then in the church hall, in sight of the pulpit asked me to lie and ignore deficiencies on the application.

Sometimes I'm glad I am not a Christian.

What gets me is the fact that there is even discussion about what to do with priests who abuse childen. Kick them out and report them to the police. There is not room for debate. I think that not allowing priests to be married is a joke too.

I was inspecting a Jehovah's witness church that had E&S problems so bad that I had to include a PA DEP compliance specialist. We were reading the plans and showing them the E&S controls they were not using. One of the church members said, "Well, they told us at the township that we needed to submit this plan to get the building permit..." I asked him if that statement really meant that they never intended to use the E&S plan, and he about answered yes when the pastor wisely interrupted him.

My favorite chrismtas ornament is a 1974 Pope ornament that we inherited from rob's gramma. Everyone that came to our house over the holiday season, would go look at our tree and the double take on the pope ornament was priceless. :)

As for the child molesting priests, i totally don't understand where the indecision on what to do comes from! Send them to JAIL. sigh.

One of rob's aunt still maintains that this whole controversy is just "Them" out to get the catholics. like this is a whole protestant conspiracy to wreak havoc in the vatican. again, sigh.

Didn't the Lutheran and Episcopal churches in the U.S. reach some sort of cosmic concord within the last couple of years?
