Meme Saturday!

Saturday is close enough to the Sabbath that I rarely post. But since these are memes...I'll make an exception.

Two for one meme day!

1) I was tagged by AngelMeg for this one. The Five Things
... existentially speaking.

Five things in my freezer
chill, angst, memories, breath, shredded zucchini

Five things in my closet
Fear, Vulnerability, Anxiety, Memories, A lightbulb

Five things in my car
freedom, anticipation, joy of movement, carefree frivolity, a map

Five things in my backpack
a message, a vocation, a puzzle, a marathon, Tylenol

I tag...
Big Blue Wave.

2) I got tagged by Kyrie Eleison (the blog, that is) for this one.
Which five ____ would you want to meet to hold a deep conversation? (people may be living or dead)


St. John Baptiste de la Salle -- I teach through the order he founded
St. Bonaventure --a cool funky Franciscan mystic
St. John of the Cross -- so really...the dark night? Or just depression?
St. Paul--I bet he could preach
St. Teresa of Avila--want some tips on becoming a mystic

Those in the Process of Being Canonized
Oscar Romero
Pedro Arrupe
Dorothy Day
Peter Maurin
Bl. Solanus Casey (from Blessed to Saint)

Heroes from your native country
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Thomas Merton
Abigail Adams
Frederick Douglass
Sojourner Truth

William Blake
Gabriel Marcel
Marie Howe
Albert Camus

Celebrities :-)
Julie D. of Happy Catholic
Sr. Susan Rose of Musings of a Discerning Woman
AngelMeg of Transcendental Musings
Korrektiv, the band

I tag The Minor Premise.
(See how bad I am at this? I didn't realize that I was supposed to name five tags as well. I'm a meme failure, obviously. Ok, in addition to The Minor Premise, I tag: Axegrinder, The Refusal to Grasp, Meg's Musings, and Tales from God's Country.)

Shredded zucchini?

I'm also impressed that you refrain from blogging (or is it irony?) on the Lord's Day.

Fr Seán Coyle said...

Greetings from the Philippines. Saturday is 'so close enough to the Sabbath' that it IS the Sabbath, in Latin 'Sabbatum.' The Jewish Sabbath begins on Friday at sundown and ends on Saturday at the same time. Sunday is the Lord's Day, in Latin 'Dies Dominici,' from which comes the French 'Dimanche,' the Spanish/Portuguese 'Sabado' and the Irish 'Dé Domhnaigh.'
God bless

I'm so honored to be included? When do I show up to meet Bono??

Seriously though, I want to join in the conversation of those in the process of being cannonized It would be AMAZING!

I'm hardly a celebrity, but I would love to meet someday.

loved your list.

I didn't even think of John of the Cross and he was one of my favs. I must be slipping.

Jonathan--follow the zucchini link. Plus shredded zucchini makes great zucchini bread.

I wasn't ironic about avoiding blogging on Sunday. Sometimes I do but I usually try to do other things, you know, church, be with family, friends, weird craziness like that.

Fr Sean, your point is well taken. I can rest all weekend in good conscience.

Sr. Susan (congrats!) and AngelMeg, I can't think of any entertainment celebrities worth meeting (except Bono) but I can think of a number of online folks I'd love to meet someday...including you two!

Jonathan Potter said...

Ah yes, the Zucchini Chronicles. I was thinking Shredded Zucchini would be a great name for a band.

I meant: or is it irony you are refraining from. I.e. an irony fast while you feast on the splendor of truth.

The Ironic Catholic said...

Ohhh, I see--I leave most of my deep thoughts for the classroom (maybe). Here, I'm pretty mindless.

Sure, let's say the second irony option.
