Don’t you just hate it when your heart bids you to make decisions your brain cannot abide? I can count on one hand how many hours my dog has been in the ground and I’m already daydreaming about a new animal companion.

In reality it’s more complicated than that, but in essence that’s what’s going…

I adopted a cat immediately upon my previous cat’s passing, if only because my logic allowed that waiting might soothe my guilt but it wouldn’t keep a cat at the pound alive another day.

If anyone tries to make you feel bad about adopting another animal ‘so soon,’ don’t let them.

You may want to look into foster programs, as many of them will help pay for the pet food and will pay for all the medical expenses. It would allow you to show love to the animal without having to commit to expenses you can’t handle.

A reading from the Gospel According to Luke 1:46-55

Mary said,

'With all my heart I glorify the Lord! In the depths of who I am I rejoice in God my savior. He has looked with favor on the low status of His servant. Look! From now on, everyone will consider me highly favored because the mighty one has done great things for me. Holy is His name. He shows mercy to everyone, from one generation to the next, who honors Him as God. He has shown strength with His arm. He has scattered those with arrogant thoughts and proud inclinations. He has pulled the powerful down from their thrones and lifted up the lowly. He has filled the hungry with good things and sent the rich away empty-handed. He has come to the aid of His servant Israel, remembering His mercy, just as He promised to our ancestors, to Abraham and to Abraham's descendents forever.'

That is suitably unsettling, in every sense of the word. It certainly gives me something to ponder on.

Thank you, dear.

What did Jeanne d’Arc really look like? 

We can only answer that we know very little indeed. We know that she was about five foot two in height, thickly made, muscular, and very strong. Her eyes were far apart, and somewhat prominent. Her hair was black. She was reasonably good-looking, but by no means pretty. Her complexion was distinctly dark. She had a red birthmark her left ear, and was gifted with a low, sweet and compelling voice. That is absolutely all we know of her physical characteristics.

A further description of the Maid is contained in a letter from Milan, written on 21st June 1429. De Boulainvilliers was Chamberlain to CharlesVII, and Seneschal of Berry. His description is as follows:

"This girl is reasonably good-looking, and with something virile in her bearing; she speaks but little, and is remarkably prudent, in what she does say. She eats little, and drinks wine still less; manages both her horse and her arms superbly well; greatly likes the company of knights and soldiers; scorns the company of the rabble; sheds many tears; has a happy expression; so great is her strength in the endurance of fatigue that she could remain completely armed during six whole days and nights.

Lana Del Rey is extremely overrated and is so contrived that it’s comical, but “Off to the Races” is by far the most beautiful song I’ve ever heard in my life.

Contrived? How dare you.

Spoiled princess who likes bad boys is my aesthetic.

Feet don’t fail me now.

Let me guess, you don’t fully appreciate Marina and The Diamonds either? Natalia Kills? Kitten?!

Marina is my favorite and you should know this because we both had Lucifer feelings because of her.

I think you should know that I am working on a St. Sebastian playlist. It also takes me weeks to make one, as artistintheshrubs can attest to…and this is going on the third week. (I’m still not 100% happy with  my Judas playlist, unlike my Lilith one.)

I just ate a whole pack of pepperridge farm nantucket double dark chocolate chunk cookies because I feel bad about stuff

When you indulge, you sure know how to pick the good stuff.

I mean all sins are equal so if you’re going to sin at least indulge properly

Honestly, I’m disappointed you didn’t buy something fresh from a bakery.

Baked goods shouldn’t come with a “sell by” date.
