Happy Hump Day

This is an especially meaningful Hump Day for me because I just made it over a hump that rivals Kim Kardashian’s.

Just when I thought I had nothing left to write about grammar, my editor requested fifty more pages. But I did it, and I sent them off this morning!

I am excited because now I have more time to dedicate to my new Mad Men addiction and to getting back to reading your blogs—sorry, I’ve been MIA this week.

But I wanted to drop in and say hi and to let you know I’ve missed you. Oh, and I also want to tell you about this new religion I’m thinking about joining. I have been reading about it in my students’ critical thinking papers I'm currently grading in which I have them analyze an interview between Bill O’Reilly and Marilyn Manson.

I, of course, watched the interview, but my students are picking up on something I must have missed. Several of them have pointed out that Bill O’Reilly accused Marilyn Manson of being a member of the Church of Satin.

I’m sure some of you are already familiar with this Satin religion. What do the Satinists believe in?

Personally, I like the Church of Silk better, but to each his own. Congrats on how close you are!

Tere Kirkland said...

Ha ha! Do they think he "warships" "Satin"? That's one my nephew always got wrong, lol.

Glad you finished your pages!

I always sweat too much when I'm in the Church of Satin. It's not a pretty sight.

I'm an elegant gal...I prefer the Temple of Chiffon.

I remember on one of our common room tables in high school someone wrote in permanent marker, "Satin rules." I prefer silk, but whatevs. ;)

I hear the Church of Satin is quite soft really.

Haha I think the best part of this post is the comments it solicited! As usual great post :)

*giggles* It is a church with a lot of cross dressing and so is very entertaining.

I myself ascribe to the Shrine of Cashmere. It's a little less demanding, but the afterlife promises a cashmere hammock.

WOO HOO FOR FIFTY PAGES! Make yourself a martini and enjoy Mad Men for the rest of the month.

I guess I'm old-fashioned: I'll stick with King Cotton - Egyptian of course. Although, the church of satin conjures up some slick images. ;-)

satin sashes and The Sound of Music come to mind...

I have always been a member of the church of Satin. And the church of Diamonds.

I would think it would be the Chruch of Wool. I'm allergic. It is a very itchy prospect. Hell is would be for me, you see.

*slaps head*
Let's see... Following that line of thinking, I suppose that I would belong to the church of iTunes, or something. Hmm? What? Lord, I was only kidding... Wait! No, I was only messing around...
*sigh*
I'm in trouble now. I gotta' go to church.

Ah, I'm familiar with this Satin Worship you speak of as my hometown had some Satin graffiti. While I'm against cults in general, those that don soft, silky fabric can't be all that bad, right?

I'm one of the few who have not watched Mad Men. I'm going to sit down and watch the first year this weekend.
