I'm going to transfer one or two things from my previous blog here. This is from Friday, May 2nd.

I'm a Catholic nerd. We already knew this, especially after that treatise on sacred music a few days ago, but the blog which starts off "You know you're a Catholic nerd when..." confirms this. Catholic Nerd.

I'd like to add a few to her list. You know you're a Catholic nerd when...

...you greet a friend with "Happy Feast Day!" because today is the feast of the saint whose name he took at his Confirmation.

...you have ever considered naming one of your possible children after one of the more obscure Fathers of the Church. (Hopefully you then realize that no one will be able to spell or pronounce it.)

...you have ever referred to a saint not by his or her name, but simply as your patron or patroness. (Extra points for referring to Mary only as your Mother.)

...you actually have a party on the feast of one of your favorite saints. (Katie, we must begin plans for St. Cecilia's day this year.)

...you know that if you became a nun, you would wear a habit. (For guys--you'd consider wearing a cassock if you became a priest.)

...you have a desire to say a Glory Be after every prayer. (Extra points for wanting to say a Gloria Patri, mucho points for wanting to chant a Gloria Patri.)

...knowing that a guy or girl goes to daily Mass is a big turn-on.

Ok. That's enough for now. Be warned--I may have more in future!
