My Birthday

So yeah...today's my birthday. More exciting, however, is the fact that I share my birthday with St. Thomas More's feast day. As it happens, he is the patron saint of lawyers and politicians and the patron saint of my law school.

If you want a story of Providence, when I decided to drop Sports Medicine and be an attorney, I didn't realize that I was born on St. Thomas More's feast day. I didn't find out until I was going through the application process for Notre Dame. God works in wonderful and mysterious ways. I guess I was marked as a lawyer a long time ago...

St. Thomas More, pray for us!

Interesting coincidence... but I'm not sure you can attribute the connection to God.

GL as a lawyer though.

Becky! Don't you ever thank God for anything again! How can you be sure it was Him after all ? Oh my Lord I do not think I can survive any more anonymous posts.

What's that bug up you butt, Andrew? I was merely pointing out that it is an interesting coincidence, but I don't think Becky has any information that it might be the work of the Lord.

Oh my Lord i do not think I can survive any more posts between Andrew and the Supernatural rabbit crap.

I should also add that I meant "GL as a lawyer," which should have indicated that I didn't mean to be an asshole like you are on your posts here.

I figured you'd know that since you seem to believe you know all.

Saturday Morning After-School Program * (Is that an oxymoron?)

Well, I admit I aint the sweetest candy in the drawer anymore (nor the sharpest tack!). But, forgive me if I feel sorry for proselytizing skeptics. I figure their lot in life is something worse than those guys locked in the bathroom in "Saw" (didn't see it). I'm sorry for being caustic, but is there any point to your admonition of Becky's musing ? (I am gathering proof as we speak that the connection is attributable to Frederick Barbarossa and a guy who met Richard Gere at a Comic-con, but I'm going to wait til I have confirmation).

Sorry for being caustic. I know I should probably turn it down. Just a Q. If you don't know any of us, why be anonymous? If you do, . . . yeah same question.

P.S.S. Onomatopoeia didn't disappear after sixth grade English class. If you're going to be unkind, avoid throwing fecal-based epithets. There's too much backflow- i.e. monkeys might have good aim, but I'm sure their hands smell, too. (ugh, I feel dirty even talking about it from a distance).
Better word choice : "Andrew, you are a BUG." (conceded).

The More You Know . . .

Peace :- )

Ok, I could post with some other name, but I would be just as anonymous, A...

So, what is the difference? In fact, I would say that I'm being especially truthful, since I AM anonymous.

And I still believe "what's that bug up your butt" is better than "you are a bug." You certainly don't bear any resemblance to an insect (probably don't have 6 legs, no exoskeleton, not separated into segments...).

My rhetorical question is in fact nobler than "you are a bug" in this regard. I don't bash the fact that you are human, I merely question why you behave as you do. And, in fact, a question like "what's that bug up your butt?" also seems to indicate that if the "bug" were not up your butt, I may even respect you as a normal human. So really, this is quite a tame rhetorical question indeed.

I'm sure Becky's had enough of my posts (for one week). Thanks for the fun. Don't ever be bashful about who you are.

I'm not bashful either, Mr. Hiller.
