Infidel Trifecta

More presents are coming later today, but so far I have received:

  1. Augustine through the Ages: an Encyclopedia. Everything you would ever want to know about Saint Augustine, in only 902 pages.
  2. A bottle of Drambuie.
  3. A pound of lard. (After 60+ years of baking, my mother has finally given up making her own pie-crust. I haven't. I've already used a quarter of it for something in the oven right now.)

Mmmmmmm, Christianity, liquor, and pork: just the things to annoy our enemies in the current war. Of course, there are other categories in their very long list of anathemas, but I doubt my relatives will be giving me anything Jewish or pornographic for Christmas.

You are a holy warrior. And I say that as a defout and observational atheist.

By which I mean 'devout'.
