Black Vatican News...

For those of you who have not seen it, over on Flynn Unfiltered there is a preview of the new Black Vatican website! When I spoke with our digital bodhisattva last night, he told me that his plan is for the website to go live this week, with the podcast, the webstore, the forum, and the cover page for the new story arc going up simultaneously. It will be a busy few days around here.

Now would be an excellent time for you all to think up a clever screen name for the forum. The Sable Primate has been very clear on this - along with belief in something and tithing, forum membership is required of all the CyberFaithful. You don't want to risk excommunication for something as minor as this...

Now, for news of a more personal nature. Today is the first time I have ventured out of the house without allergy meds since the deadly dust began to fall from the trees around here in the first week of June. Because I find having my eyes swell shut and getting hives on the roof of my mouth disconcerting, I have been driving the air-conditioned Popemobile to work each day to protect myself, but today I jumped on the WOB and made my way to the office. Without the almost perpetual benadryl haze I have been in of late, the world is quite pretty right now. It's now possible for me to look at flowers without assuming that they are all trying to kill me.

Since we have relocated the Black Vatican, my ride in is even shorter than it used to be - it's now just under a half mile from our front door to the door of my office. It hardly counts as a ride, but the feeling of putting your legs to work as soon as you leave the house is nice, and it is just slightly uphill. When the world is covered with ice and snow (could happen anytime around here) that half-mile will be quite long enough.

My elbow is healing nicely, thanks to the care of my personal BCP Nurse (shown at left), so please redirect your medicinal energies toward our own Mist1, who is suffering from a bad infestation of ear cooties. I have instructed the BCPs to anoint each other with fragrant oils, chant, light candles, and dance nude before the altar in her name. (It may not help Mist at all, but it has done wonders for morale around here...)

Dammit! No one ever anoints me with anything! (umm...maybe that's not exactly true, I gues it depends on how you define anointing...)

It's true, the Tech Departments code monkeys are hard at work slapping together PHP and HTML into something usable, except that one who keeps trying to rewrite Shakespeare...

I think we'll be looking at a launch on Thursday if the fates are kind, or perhaps more likely, mid to late Friday...

WNG,

If you need "anointing" just let us know. The ladies around here refer to it as receiving "the Black Pope's Special Blessing"...

Squid said...

Ya know WNG, the Black Pope isn't the only one around here who can annoint people ;) I am the left hand of His Sinfulness after all.

Only just found your site, and I haven't deciphered (if there IS an answer) what the Black Vatican is, exactly, besides your job location... but I just had to say-the name is brilliant.

Oh boy, another fan-girl in the making...

WNG is my Co-Fangirl. She's the single one who is allowed to take part in the "annointing" and the "Black Pope's special blessing". - Hence the free panties i'm sure flynn will send her.

I must live my annointing vicariously through her. *le sigh*
I think they should come up with a milder version of these things just for married ones. *pout*

Silly Linus, that's not a nurse - that's a nun. Don't you know your "naughty girls?" Maybe we should make up some flash cards, get you back up to speed.

Ooh, ooh, since I'm in the "new convert" storyline, perhaps I should explain the Black Vatican to princess in galoshes.

Sorry, hon. There are no words.

How many flock members does it take to anoint a co-fangirl? hmm...I might have to find out...but there had better be some free panties in it for me! Man, I am so easy :-(

Okay, so I am officially caught up on your blog and the comic. For those of you who don't know, the snark that was coming my way from His Sinfulness and Flynn was immense. Also, I would like to say that if you are going to give all the credit of your healing elbow to a slutty nun who dresses like a two-penny hoe, well I guess next time I won't worry about you when you are complaining of sharp pains and possible runs to the emergency room. Lastly, if it is true that she will be around for healing "rituals" my shoulder has been feeling a bit ouchy of late.

Mayren,
I used to give out beatifications, but no one cares about the path to sainthood anymore; laughing with the sinners is so much more appealing...

Becky,
Nuns make the *best* nurses! I am well versed on the various species of naughty girls, but you can flash anything at me you'd like...

G-Fresh,
A two penny ho? That outfit is satin - very expensive. I was thinking of making it the new dress uniform for the BCPs...
