7 Quick Takes Friday, Volume 31

Click here to read the original post at

I had the distinct pleasure of meeting, in person, Bryan of Calling All Witnesses on Thursday! He was in my city for work, so we met up at daily Mass. He got a micro-tour (sorry, Bryan, you only saw about 8 blocks of my fair city) and some Eucharist at Ascension Thursday Mass.

Woooohooo blog friends!

I was stumblingupon things... and I found this explanation of how men and women see colors differently. Enjoy:

I don't own the time...
I have always wondered why Google still tells us how long it took it to search for your requested term. Do they think we're keeping track of that? Do they think we can know the difference between a 0.45 and 0.48 second search?

And for that matter, why does it take it 0.03 seconds longer to search? In this instant-gratification world, is this our hang up?

This weekend marks a VERY important weekend in the lives of many of my dearest friends. One of my best friends is entering into the Sacrament of marriage on Saturday. I cannot WAIT to see the plan God has in store for these two, beautiful Christians!

She loves pink, but I'm told it's not going to be this bad.
And boogie at their reception. But Sacrament first, par-TAY later.

This is for my ladies out there (Casey, this doesn't get to apply to you this weekend):

The origin of the genius


Have a blessed Feast of the Ascension! The King is Risen!

Read Stacy Trasancos' unique take on the feast, "Let us escalate love?"


I'm sorry we were late announcing the next Bright Maidens topic... as a reminder, the topic will be "On Dating Nice Catholic Girls." This is different than our dating post from a while ago because we're starting by reacting to this article on Patheos, which boiled our blood.

Watch out, y'all. Bright Maidens on a rampage. Join us!

All of these things were fun little things to read this evening. Love that you got to meet Bryan! I have a dream of someday meeting all of the people I know through blogging and twitter! it bad that I just started caring about shaving my legs more often just to get used to it before getting married in a couple of weeks? and because we're moving to a warmer climate? hahaha :-P

Ooh, I have to pass on the xkcd color survey results. Randall Munroe asked a lot of people to label color samples. He didn't find that much granular label variation by gender, but he turned up some other surprises.

I'm so glad we got the opportunity to do Mass and dinner after! The 8 blocks that I did see were great... :) Oh, and the GPS took me by VCU, and thru one of the few roundabouts that is in the area (ironic)! St. Benedict's was beautiful, and it's funny how things just fall in place sometimes.

The thing that keeps playing in my mind over the last few weeks is that as young Catholics, we are not alone. Last night totally re-affirmed that! #cathsorority, #cathdudes, and Young Catholics unite!!

1: One day I will meet one or more fellow bloggers. I know Subvet from Blowing San #1 lives in the DFW area, and Devin Rose is down in Austin ....

2: I have actually met guys — well, possessors of Y chromosomes — that could tell the difference between beige, bone and ecru. To me, they're all slightly dirty whites.

3: Even more puzzling when you consider in that .45 seconds Google grabbed everything that mentioned any one of the search terms, whether it related or not.

4: "It's party time! P-A-R-T-Why? 'Cause I gotta!"

5: Umm ... yeah.

6: "Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into heaven? This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven" (Ac 1:11).

7: Looking forward to it!

Hahahah I love the hairy legs chart. I almost miss going to my all girls school because nobody cared! Have fun at the wedding!

We are, what, one week into summer and I'm already tired of this activity? Can anyone recommend a good razor or Veet or Nair? Please keep in mind I'm very cheap, so my razors come from the dollar store, which is probably why they don't work so well. Maybe I'm doing it wrong? Haha.
