  2. Um, hello, the only time a woman should wear pants is if she forgot and wore them to Mass and then she should take them off her le, er, lower limbs, and promptly place them on her head, tying the legs into place, so that our Eucharistic Lord suffers no offense.

    Thank you, Fr. Z.

  3. To be fair, I think Fr. Z deliberately avoids the "no pants" stuff.

  4. Unless they're a part of "pantsuits," and the woman in question is a consecrated religious.

  5. In which case they're polyester and therefore indestructible so she's saving the earth!

    In the 60's-70's my grandma, her 2 sisters and a sil bought polyester pantsuits. The sil is last remaining and has custody of the whole collection. She has saved herself countless thousands of dollars by not updating her wardrobe while simultaneously saving the earth.

  6. What is a sil? Just wondering.

  7. Last count I had a sil was the seventh stitch on the applique on an appareled amice's left sleeve. In Spain. But only on Rogation days.

  9. Taken in and of itself, women in pants is no big deal.

    Adding it as a part of the whole, however, it gains much importance.

    The whole is a discussion waiting to happen, especially in the light of the overall monstrosity that has resulted of little pieces coming together.

    Satan has decided not to try for demolishing the entire Church, just a little piece at a time.

  12. Shadowlands-
    CONGRATS on the job!!

    Now the fun part is going clothes shopping :)

    Really though-- to get you started some good mix and match basics for the first couple of weeks...as you work there you can check out what everyone else is wearing, if they have a "Casual Friday", etc.

    I'm lucky..I'm the only lady in my office besides the secretary..I could wear the same clothes three weeks in a row and no one would notice or care... :)

    Again CONGRATS..and thanks St Joseph for your intercession :)

  15. Shadowlands, if you're there, by the way, aren't you from Ireland?

    Is it Ulster or the Republic that you're from?

    I wish I'd have gone there when I was living in Europe :( I hate the EU, but travel sure was cheap.

    My mom is from Southern Ireland. My dad is a Geordie, (I'd look that one up, if I were you or have you heards of Cheryl Cole?) but he has Irish descent. His dad was a protestant from Dublin.

    I was born in London. My mom inroduces me as an Irish person, but that's just her way. She'll find a bit of Irish in anyone if she can!! I believe she even discovered Obama's connections to the emerald isle!!

  18. Oh, okay, thanks.

    Geordie, huh? I've heard that on a song, "sailing to Philadelphia" by Mark Knopfler. He uses it to describe Charie Mason, of the Mason-Dixon line.

    So it's someone from the area around Newcastle, eh? Supposedly they've got a very different and very ancient dialect there.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Actually, come to think of it, it was Jeremiah Docon who was the Geordie. Knopfler gives him the line "All Durham and Northumberland are measured up by my own hand". It's a great song, a duet with James Taylor. The albums great, too.

  20. Dixon, no Docon. Stupid autocorrect - and Docon isn't even a word!

    Wy aye man, there's some canny wee phrases tu lurn'n unnerstan.
    which means(but my spellin was probably atrocius),
    Yes there's some difficult terminology to learn and understand.

    Such as:

    'full o'gannon, like a pitmuns dog!'

    A child full of energy, jumping all over the place like a miner's pet dog.

    Geordies call everybody 'man' and 'pet'

    You even hear some men call their wives 'man'

    Sort of goes like this

    "Hurry up, pet, man, pet"

    It's dead cool.

    harway the lads!!!!(football lingo).

  22. Terry, can you read my latest post? I think I might be killed by the WDTPRS commenters soon.....or their ilk. Not the ilk, please! Anything but the ilk!!

  23. Haha gotta love the "odd" British dialects. It amazes me how on those two islands (and the little bitty ones too), the variation between dialects is much greater than in all of the US and Canada.

  24. Shadowlands--

    Trousers, slacks--we call them both :)

  25. My blog is a forum! That's great!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Not only is your blog a forum, it's a bar, a lounge, an art gallery, a church entrance hall to meet folks I haven't seen in a long time and maybe even somewhere to keep Christmas presents hidden if necessary!

    Seriously, are you really angry Terry? Do you want us to rent a room somewhere else? There's a place down the hall from here with a 'to let' sign, but it looks a bit too small and dull for me. You have much more interesting visitors at your place, you see.
    Anyway, I can't afford their rent. I bet that's what this is really about, an increase! I bet I'm right.

  27. Shadowlands - heavens no, I think it is just fine that every one does that here. It's really entertaining.

  29. I think your blog needs a 'dress' code.
