7th Graders were asking a lot about ghosts today. I told them that if they really think there's a ghost, they should call me and I'll bless their house. 

7th Grader: Will a house blessing really get rid of an evil spirit?
Me: Yes. If you still have problems afterward, you're probably just crazy. 
7th Grader: But, I do hear foot steps in the hallway at night and sometimes objects aren't where we left them. 
Me: Are you sure there isn't someone living in your attic who only comes out when everyone is asleep?

5th grader: Do animals go to heaven?
Me: St. Paul says that Christ redeems all of creation. (Col 1:20) So, it is possible that animals will go to heaven. 
5th grader: What about bad animals?
Me: There aren't bad animals. Just animals that think we're food. 
5th grader: Do tarantula's go to heaven?
Me: If animals go to heaven, tarantula's would be there, too.
5th grader: But, I'd be able to squash them, right?
Me: No, if they're in heaven, they're immortal tarantulas and there's no stopping them. 
class freaks out

Meanwhile at religious education...
7th grader: How do you go to hell?
Me: By dying with one mortal sin on your soul.
7th grader: Can you give me an example of a mortal sin?
Me: Purposefully missing mass on Sunday.
7th grader: No, seriously, give me a real example.

I then gave plenty of other real examples and the class was surprised. Tonight was a good night. :)

Does anyone else remember the equinox being on the 21st of March and is now confused that it is on the 20th. I was, too. But then I found this video which explains why it shifted:

(Wait for the third topic. He does two topics before the one I'm interested in.)

I have a pile of graphic novels I would like to sell. Does anyone have any idea how I should do that?

eBay?  If they're not terribly valuable, sell them in bundles, perhaps.

Here's some temptation for this Friday of the First week of Lent: http://www.slate.com/articles/life/food/2014/03/united_steaks_of_america_map_if_each_state_could_have_only_one_meat_what.html

(which is also an ember day)
Good news! This map will soon be for sale in the Slate Store. Americans love meat. In fact, we eat more of it per capita than almost any other country in the world. (Luxembourg has us beat by about 31 pounds per person per year. La vache!) So it’s surprising...

Question of the day

3rd Grader: How do you call the Devil to you?

Me: Why on earth would I tell you how to do that?
