here's a nice change...

... I was on TV and for once it wasn't an episode of COPS. Oh, c'mon, I'm just kidding. No, I'm not. Yes, I am...not...not kidding.

Ok, so I had to gate crash the reserved seating section to end up in the third row right up from, in plain view of ewtn's camera. It's not like I am attention seeking or some camera whore.



This is for you, Terry. And that other guy... what's his name. Thom.

WHAT?!? I screen cap you and don't even get a shout out?!

Cannonball Awards Nomination:

The Crescat for Most Craptasticly Incosiderate Blogger :P

Just for this Im sending the Boy a snake, spider, and other fear inducing pets for Christmas and Flag Day!

They should have given you a screen caption on EWTN: "Notorious Catholic Blogger: "The Crescat" I'm sure they were afraid to do that because of all the priests that were going to run up and ask for your autograph!

The Crescat said...

Joe... apologies. I know you as "defend us in battle"... not your twitter alter ego, "angels defend us".

The Crescat said...

Cathy... puh-lease. :-P

I've been trying to discren since you first posted this on FB if you're Muslim in this photo or not. I suppose that, for this occasion, it would have been white.

Joe (Defend Us In Battle) said...

Well, I can't have one name. I am such and Uber-Twit, that the throngs of Twittees would flood me if they knew I was one in the same.

Actually, stupid twitter is stupid... and I couldnt get Defendusinbattle because they stupidly stop at 14 characters instead of 15. Also, for Gmail, someone already stole Defendusinbattle. I didn't think very well when I was branding my blog and email and such. I guess that is why I am not a Catholic Blog Celebrity Extraordinare.

Also... I am thinking your Hail, Joe in your post might be less than genuine.

Are you smirking?

Suburbanbanshee said...

When I turned on EWTN and saw all the familiar St. Blog's faces, and thought of all the CMAA people who also said they were going to be there... I'm afraid my first thought was, "If a bomb went off now, we'd be in deep trouble!" Then I spent the next five minutes feeling very guilty for thinking that.

So I'm glad it didn't turn into a COPS episode. :)

The Crescat said...

Noooo. I am not smirking.
of course "Hail Joe" was genuine.
Thom, what the hell are you talking about?

Thom Curnutte, S.F.O. said...

Are you veiled or can God see your head, Fatima?

The Crescat said...

Thom, I don't own a veil so the Lord saw my head, even my scandelous grey hairs too.

I had a white one but I gave it away. It felt weird wearing virginal white with a child sitting next me in mass.

Thom Curnutte, S.F.O. said...

:-p

Terry Nelson said...

You are so beautiful... I'm singing it as I look at this.

Terry... all these Progressive Women Catholic bloggers think they own the blogosphere!

IS OUTRAGE!!

*hides*

The Crescat said...

Hey... I never once mentioned the number of times people stopped me to ask me if I was The Crescat and then proceed to gush and shower me with compliments. Ooo and buy me stuff... like beer and vodka.

Seven. Seven times.

Cathy_of_Alex said...

Ter: Ok, I better go see where I'm being trashed now!

cuaguy said...

and how did you get that seat? By lying :P

John said...

cuaguy,

She crashed it, in other words, she strode up and took a seat at the head of the table. Some of the staff would have moved her, but Jesus likely told them "No, that's a good spot for her, I need to keep my eye on that one."

Beautiful post.

Suburbanbanshee said...

If you act like you belong there, you can get there. (And that means you belong there, right?) It's chutzpah, not lying.

My genially pushy grandpa was probably cheering for you from his seat in the afterlife. He'd probably say that gall like that meant you've got a great future in Purchasing. :)

Walburga said...

Ok, I need some help here...which one of those blobs of humanity is you? I can't pick you out at all.

The Crescat said...

Walburga... I am the blob @ the communion rail on the bottom right... the one *not* in a Roman collar. :-P

Walburga said...

Thanks! Got it.

nazareth priest said...

I actually looked for you, Kat.
I mean it.
I watched it and didn't see this picture; we taped it; I'll review it.
Darnnit...missed it!
And for the Boy, as well...(but isn't he making his lst Communion this year?).
Anyway, glad somebody got it on tape!

For good measure... this post helped up my Technorati rank... whatever THAT is :P
