Sister Act

  • I was staffing a table outside a conference and the occasional individual would come out with a question or concern and we'd slip in later with the answer on a folded sheet of paper. One of our more distinguished Sisters exited the conference room to ask me the score of the Cardinals game...

  • The Bishop arrived to hold evening Liturgy. He was a very impressive man, and yes, I ironed his vestments in my room prior to his arrival.

  • The Bishop gave me half a bottle of non-consecrated wine after his Liturgy for personal consumption. Good man, the Bishop.

  • The hotel bar has Pilsner Urquell on tap. None of the Sisters joined me.

  • One of the Sisters found a large screw in the floor and handed it to me. I ignored all the usual implications and said simply, "Thank you."

  • And lastly, A Sister came down with her arms crossed and her hands hidden in the opposite sleeve grasping her wrists, Eskimo-style. One of the staff asked if she was cold. "No, it's just a habit." she replied.
    "No pun intended?" I quipped. *bada-bing* She didn't get it.

At least you're having a good time!

Everything I do, I do with enthusiasm. Even ironing the Bishop's vestments.

Of course!

OK, let me get this straight. So you say none of the nuns joined you in the bar for Pilsner Urquell. OK so far… but I absolutely refuse to believe none of the queens joined you! Do you need to confess to a round of "I feel pretty" at the karaoke machine with the tall number in the ruby slippers and silver stretch pants.... that’s so hot!
ehowton at 2006-10-10 02:30 (UTC) (Link)
Fine. I'll confess. That tall number in the ruby slippers was me.
photogoot at 2006-10-10 02:34 (UTC) (Link)
Nope, not buying that either. You've got twice the ass of that ruby slippered he/she!
ehowton at 2006-10-10 02:43 (UTC) (Link)
And half the audacity.

I feel pretty,
Oh, so pretty,
I feel pretty and witty and bright!
And I pity
Any girl who isn't me tonight.

I feel charming,
Oh, so charming
It's alarming how charming I feel!
And so pretty
That I hardly can believe I'm real.

See the pretty girl in that mirror there:
Who can that attractive girl be?
Such a pretty face,
Such a pretty dress,
Such a pretty smile,
Such a pretty me!

I feel stunning
And entrancing,
Feel like running and dancing for joy,
For I'm loved
By a pretty wonderful boy!

Like I didn't know the words to that. It's one of my favorites!

I sing it all the time!

In my minds eye you are right now pirouetting about your hotel room belting out the lines with enthusiasm… Just like the old days.
ehowton at 2006-10-10 03:01 (UTC) (Link)
You can see me? Where are you? Damnit - I'll close the blinds.

Non-consecrated wine

My dear boy,

I hope it was a good vintage!

You wanna watch out for them Catholic Penguins. Before you know it you'll be taking Holy Orders

Chin chin.

Re: Non-consecrated wine

In this particular instance, the blood of Christ was a particularly inexpensive Californian Merlot...and I haven't been rapped across the knuckles yet.

Re: Non-consecrated wine

It could happen at any time though! :)

Re: Non-consecrated wine

Yes it could - Sister Joan is here!

You are such a lucky man. If I didn't know any better, I'd say that you went up to DC to play, not work.

That was funny about the Cardnial game score. Classic.

Nice job for the bishop. Tell me sir, did you suck his cock before you turned on the TV to watch World Trade Center?

Its 100% work, 17 hours a day. But I'm not one to allow external events to influence my attitude. Not even your poor one. I'm truly sorry you hate life.

I did not mean to project a sour attitude. Rather, the last comment was reminicent of the debate we had on my blog. Just had to rub it in one more time.

Speaking of which, there is a new post in the old style. See if you can guess what it's about.

Is it about you fisting your own ass again?

*Laughs* That's certainly an interesting situation- and an even more interesting picture.
ehowton at 2006-10-12 03:08 (UTC) (Link)
The entire thing was completely outrageous. Nuns & Drag Queens. Never again in my lifetime will I see such an event!

That was her polite way of telling you that you are screwed big time.

No, really, I know nuns she was really telling you that your screwed!!!!!

I forgot only Catholics go to heaven.

No, the correct answer is the mormons!!!
