Amid back-to-school busyness, a respectable dose of sadness (please pray for Hank Holder), and plenty of very good things, I would like to pause and report:

I love, love, love the “Happy Working Song” from the movie Enchanted.

Fun movie, by the way.  But that song — wow, has to be one of my favorite movie scenes of all time.  If you’ve ever struggled with conflicting emotions towards Snow White or Maria von Trapp, here is your scene.

(This version has a short intro you might not need, but it plays the whole song.)


I’m a new reader to Eric Sammon’s blog, The Divine Life.  He recently compiled a list of his top-ten posts for the past year, and I thought this one was mighty enjoyable:  Really Catholic and Uber Catholic. Too true, too true.    Naturally I have to like any quiz that accurately paints me for the moderate that I am.  Don’t mind the combox.

Enjoy.  Happy New Year!

Dear Bishop ——-,

We are currently attending Vacation Bible School at ————– Parish.  We are very sorry to report that there was no Water Wednesday.  We had a very dry Wednesday.  We feel certain this must be a violation of canon law.  Please take action immediately.

Yours in Christ,

the Fitz children.

PS: Our mother is suspiciously undisturbed by these untoward events.
