Actually, I suppose you don't get a feast day until you're dead, do you? So in the meantime we'll just celebrate her birthday. Now, you may be wondering what the Spouse of the Ironic Catholic gets her for her birthday. So do I, actually. Three or four years ago, I planned a huge surprise party that involved flying in friends from way out of state and hiring a band and everything. Turns out the Ironic Catholic doesn't find surprise parties particularly ironic, or at least so I infer from her very explicit ban on any future surprise birthday parties.
So I've learned to tone things down a bit. Like for instance, this year I've decided to get her something very special that you may enjoy as well: her very own domain!!! Yes, www.ironiccatholic.com should be resolving to her blog within 24 hours. No more typing in that long URL! Isn't that a great birthday idea? Because really, nothing says, "I love you, honey . . . happy birthday!" like a custom domain! Right?
Anyway, even though real surprise parties have been banned, no one said anything about virtual surprise parties! So feel free to leave birthday (or feast day) messages in the comments box!
