"Persecuted Like Jews"

ROME - A senior Vatican priest speaking at a Good Friday service compared the uproar over sexual abuse scandals in the Catholic Church - which have included reports about Pope Benedict XVI's oversight role in two cases - to the persecution of the Jews, sharply raising the volume in the Vatican's counterattack.

--



I hope the Catholic Church collapses. Really. Not because I'm persecuting them, but because they're more of an entrenched bureaucratic institution than a vital cultural force.

1.0!

At work we just went 1.0 and released our project (it's college admissions software).

Pretty awesome feeling after 8 months of hard work. (Along with (e:zobar) my new co-worker)

This is a drawing of a ship, in honor of shipping.

Bad thought.

This is the cutest terrorist boy I've ever seen.

The Cat Came Back, the Very Next Day

My cat snuck outside last night, and I couldn't find him. But he showed up on the porch this morning.

My cat is 50% evil and 50% cuddly and 100% awesome. I hate him sometimes but I was very sad not to have him sleeping on my feet last night.

Aaargh

Work is crazy. In the next two weeks lots to do but we launch the app we've been developing March 29th! Security audits, data integrity checks, integration stuff. Blah blah blah.

But soon -- very soon -- it will help decide which kids get into, or not into, colleges. Kinda scary to hold so many futures in my hands. This is pretty much the biggest thing I've ever done professionally.

One downside, it's making me look old and grumpy:

But I can live with that :)

I also got a really nice annual review, I'm pretty down on myself usually but feel awesome for a few days after something like that going well.

Back to work...
