For what it's worth, I've always received very prompt and friendly replies to my e-mails to Barsuk.

But I guess it never was about liscensing songs.

Hail Mary's

Cause "Hail Mary" is a singular proper noun pluralized, so the 'y' doesn't get changed.

The apostrophe is correct. I learned something in Catholic school. However, I'm sitting here Easter morning drinking coffee, reading my NY Times and perusing the internet so apparently the brainwashing wasn't complete :)

is it just me, or is there an extraordinary proportion of ex-Catholics on this board? or maybe we're just screwed up and vocal about it.

have a lovely easter, everyone...
is there a non-denominational equivalent?

If I remember correctly, the holiday traditions (bunnies and eggs, etc.) are a adopted version of pagan fertility festivals in Rome, the holiday where the city released bunnies and other animals that reproduce a lot, and showed pornographic theater, to encourage people to have sex and make a bunch of little Romans to expand the empire.

Let's just say, Happy Spring everyone! (Is it Spring where you are?)

And I agree, it does seem like there are a lot of scarred ex-catholics here.

Being a horrible dork, I sent an email recently to a friend on holiday in England, with the subject line "Is it spring where you are?" It is spring in Buffalo, and it is about time (which was the subject of the email, the weather, followed up by about 20 questions about England, and then of course, the aforementioned quote). Fertility, fershmility.

Anyway.
Ex-Catholic? Well yes, but as long as the Grandparents are still alive, don't tell anyone.

I believe Eddie Izzard explained it best.

Out of curiosity: Hey Fi, is it Spring where you are? Or is it a different season down under?

In Australia, the leaves are turning and soon, the Cold South Wind will Blow Again.

sorry to be a little bitch, but the apostrophe is incorrect. an apostrophe is never used to make something plural, unless it's an abbreviation or an acronym, and even then, it's a bad idea. The Ney York Times does it with decades, but the New York Times is run by fools and charlatans. The only time it's ok is when you're writing about a letter of the alphabet in the plural and not using an apostrophe would make your sentence confusing, as in "the word albatross has two As." It would be better to write "two A's."

i will now go and remove the enormous stick from my azz.

love,
sean
