Frequently Asked Questions
Are you a nun/ clergyperson/ spokeswoman for your denomination/ seminary student/ postulant for holy orders?
HAHAHAAHAHAAAAAA! *snerk* *wipes eyes* No.
Not that there’s anything wrong with people who are, but God and I are both quite happy with my calling as a laywoman.
Well, who are you, then?
I’m Mary Sue. Nice ta meetcha.
Please provide more specific classifications.
I’m a 30 year old Christian, quatralingual, celibate, bisexual, mestiza, science-fiction addicted, pastry-making, ex-vegetarian, kinesthetic learning, overweight geek in Portland, Oregon with a M.Ed. in cross-cultural teaching, employed by a Big Ol’ Hospital as a Buyer. I buy things.
Didn’t you used to go by Sister Mary Hasta?
Yeah, back when I thought it provided some sort of anonymity. Stop laughing.
You do know what a Mary Sue is, right?
My legal name, on all my documents, given by my parents to honor my grandmothers, pronounced at my baptisim and confirmation, is Mary Sue. Which just makes me laugh all the harder.
Where do you go to church?
St. Thatguy the Dude is my present parish. It is a member of the Diocese of Oregon, and therefore a member of The Episcopal Church. I’ve also been known in the spirit of ecumenicisim to show up at St. Crankypants (a commentary on the saint, not the people of the parish), a Roman Catholic church in my neighborhood, for Saturday vigil. If you’re in the Portland area and interested in visiting one or both, contact me and I’ll give you their real names.
What’s your comment policy?
All comments are moderated. If the comment is longer than the original blog post, it is liable to be deleted. Anything containing copyrighted material will be deleted so I don’t get sued. I also delete anything I judge to be outside the bounds of good taste. Dissenting opinions are allowed, but if I judge you to be a shit stirrer, you’re deleted. If you don’t like this or you think I’m a meanie poopoo head, go get your own blog and whine there. This is my sandbox.
Who are your patron saints?
Saint Rita, patroness of women changing careers; Saint Bede, patron of researchers and academics; and Saint Francis, patron of wierdos.
What a pottymouth! Why do you cuss?
Got your attention, didn’t it?
