Ash Wednesday

As promised, I went to church last night and, no, I didn't burst into flames.

One of the great things about being in NYC is that they know that time matters and so they really do cater to you. At St. Patrick's, you can simply walk in after work, get on line, and get your ashes without going to mass. It's like drive through Christianity. You half expect the priest to say "don't forget that for the same price, you can get our 'value blessing' which comes with a side of communion wafer and a sip of wine."
