Shrove Tuesday
Funny things
PANCAKE PROCESSIONS:

Encountering a Pancake Restaurant:

In certain neighbourhoods, the solemn pancake procession will of necessity pass by a restaurant whose speciality is pancakes, flapjacks, or crepes. Extraordinary means are not to be taken to avoid this situation, unless a detour would add dignity and not unreasonable length to the route. Traditional ceremonies are to be observed while passing before such an establishment.


When the restaurant is sighted by the verger, he shall signal to the acolyte, who shall ring the bell thrice. The procession shall continue, but the serving of pancakes shall cease until the restaurant has been passed by. o­n hearing the bell, the clergy and lay ministers in procession shall turn their heads so as to face the establishment directly whilst they continue forward. Upon a single stroke of the bell, all shall stop and turn to face the restaurant. The sacred ministers shall remove their birettas, taking care not to drop the syrup pitcher as they do so.

The lay ministers shall take the birettas and pitcher. The sacred ministers shall then double-genuflect, first bringing the right knee to the ground and then the left knee to join the right o­ne o­n the ground. All others shall bow low. The celebrant shall chant the collect for Shrove Tuesday. This completed, all shall rise, and the celebrant shall cover and resume the pitcher. A single stroke of the bell shall signal the resumption of the procession.

When I was young...
Funny things
Something funny for the day...

When I was younger I believed the reason I never got caught doing naughty things at school was because I said my Our Father everynight. I thought the line that went "and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil" actually went "and lead us not into DETENTION, but deliver us from evil". it certainly made sense to me.

The 12 Pains at Christmas
Funny things
This is to be sung to the tune, the 12 Days of Christmas.

I was shopping this evening at Target (this is a good time to go shopping for Christmas goodies, short lines, good supplies and no maddening crowds), looking for candles for my advent wreath. They dont have either the saram blue or the pink tapers we were looking for, but I did find a jumping animated reindeer, Im considering putting in my front yard, jumping out of the sewer line ditch (aka as the ditch of mortal peril during the Halloween season)

I like to get all my Christmas shopping done early in the season, I like to get my presents wrapped and those that need shipping done early. My significant other thrives on excitment and does his shopping late in the season. So I think this song is going to be very pertinent to our lives together. I hope you enjoy it too.

The Twelve Pains of Christmas - Bob Rivers Comedy Corp (to the tune of The Twelve Days of Christmas) The lyrics are funny, but actually hearing the song is better.

The First Thing at Christmas
That’s such a pain to me…
…is finding a Christmas tree.

The Second Thing at Christmas
That’s such a pain to me…
…Rigging up the lights…
…and finding a Christmas tree.
