My Top 10 Meme

The Carolina Canonball a.k.a, The Crescat sent me a note saying she'd tagged me for a "My Top 10 Meme". I was happy because I thought it meant a list of the Top 10 people who tick me off and this was an excuse to rant about them publicly!!! (Oh, and if you have not ventured over to The Crescat's blog to vote on the most wretched liturgical abominations ever visioned in fabric you should do that!)

But, no, it's a list of what I consider to be my top 10 blog posts. It's not that I think I'm a great genius, it's that I feel like I should have a hard time looking like I think I am. (i.e. here are my top 10 flashes of overpowering aptitude!!!!)Although, I have to be honest, I really do think I'm smart (a--)!! Ha-Ha-Ha! Seriously, would any of us be blogging if we didn't think we were, and truly are, brilliant egomaniacs?

Here's the list of, what I consider to be, my greatest hits from my back catalog (in no particular order)! I picked this 10 with an eye towards giving an overview of what I'm "about". It contains the usual themes my readers have come to know, fear, ridicule, dispute and weary of: appropriate attire, my background, men need to be men, my outrageousness, and my heavy reliance on legal stimulants.

1) Gang Colors at Holy Mass
2) Attire at Holy Mass
3) Men's Movement and Collaborative Ministry
4) The Recovering Dissident Catholic
5) All Fools Day
6) Everyone Else is Going Up so I Should be Able to
7) Cathy's Multiple Choice Quiz (a.k.a. I'd Rather Be At Adoration)
8) Cathy's Dream
9) I am Peter
10) Serious Evil

I tag: Adoro, Angela, , Ray, Terry , The Hadleybloggers, Swissmiss, and Vincenzo!!! (Vin: I'm curious what you believe your Top 10 images are.)

I was afraid this was coming.

How'm I gonna go through 3,418 posts (can you believe that? Talk about your extreme egomania)!

Actually, In the back of my mind was a plan to cull all the bad posts from my list. That should take it down to a dozen or so.

I stopped posting to about a year ago so I might be able to go through those posts more quickly.

Give me some time, Cathy.

I didn't have nearly the number of posts that the others did, so I completed the task. There are a few of your I need to read, but am off to make some gingerbread cookies so it will have to wait until the kids' nap time :)

swissmiss: If you are going to announce that you are making cookies on this blog, then you need to make enough for all of us! Those are the rules.

Oh, and put some vanilla frosting around him and those hot candies in the eyes for me, will ya, please, pretty please?

Thataway, Cathy, for sticking up for those of us who are too shy to beg and grovel!

I nominate you for the newly created post of Parish Provisions Provider.

I finished mine Cath! Yeah! I finished mine Cath! I did it - I finished mine Cath! I'm a good boy, aren't I? Cath? Am I? (I'll bet Angie and Ray will be jealous. I don't care though Cath - I did it for you. Yeah!)

Cathy, I think that you and your big words should be the parish life liason.

And then you can negotiate for cookies for all of us.

And're a good boy, Terry. You deserve a piece of candy.

Cathy...give Terry a piece of candy. He's a good boy.

Well, I was thinking about skimming through my posts, but then I ran across Katherine Kersten's latest column and my umbrage took hold of me and I had to handle that first.

You should have already taken my umbrage memorized that by now.

Terry: *throwing treat* Good boy!

Ray: I thought we were talking roughage, not, umbrage? LOL!

You missed my recent post about Misadventures in Multitasking where I mention I was having my son help make cookies and we got a tablespoon of salt in the dough instead of a teaspoon. Absolutely awful!

Yesterday we made a very small batch of gingerbread since I'm not a big fan. The dining room managed to survive all the the sprinkles and decorations.

I still plan to make a big batch of chocolate chip, since those are my favorite. Will e-mail you all some when I make them :)

About 15 years ago I had Christmas for the family at my house and bought a pumpkin pie at Lund's (upscale grocery store).

The turkey and all the fixin's turned out well (with help from Mom and my sister) and the pie is a tradition not to be missed.

But after the first bit we realized that the baker had used salt rather than sugar in the recipe and the pie was totally unedible.

I just threw it away. But some months later I was shopping again there and happened to see the manager and asked if he had had that problem with a bunch of pumpkin pies. He shuddered and tlld me to bring in the receipt for a credit. I didn't have it, of course, and didn't press the issue.

I figure on store mistakes, they balance out in the long run.

swissmiss: I do chocolate chip too! I bet Ray does as well! :-)

When you have the oven warmed appropriately and are ready to throw in a batch or two of cookies, certainly throw in a bunch of chocolate chip versions for me, and it wouldn't hurt if a raisin or ten was mixed into the batch.

Yum, Yum.

I think I could have been a jillionaire if I had majored in "smell" in college and created scents for all the "air freshener" companies that reeked of chocolate chip cookies, fresh baked bread, bacon and eggs, etc.

Probably it would have driven all the weight reduction firms out of business though.

Rather than eat, people would just take whiffs of "Raymo's Home Baked Choco Chips" to take those pounds off.
