Now, THAT'S a vocation!

Men on a mission, on a quest!

The Search for The Best Burger In New York

And they are sagacious, they know that a burger without cheese is not a burger at all, it is nothing, NOTHING.... (can you tell a disappointment at a kosher restaurant has scarred me for life?)

(I should admit here, because of.... well, because of my life, I have not yet had the opportunity to essay the burger at Petey's Bungalow, recommended by Sir Monocle on this blog. I feel I have somehow failed to take up a quest....)

These NY guys seem to have a steakhouse-burger bias, but to each his own...

Himself is in rehearsal, and I am in rehearsal (Pirates is going to be disastrous, by the by,) so we've been wicked busy and unable to mesh our schedules in a way to do the regular grocery shopping, so Himself, for whom math and mnemonics are not strong suits was, unwontedly, charged with some solo shopping recently, and did not bring home the 93% lean ground beef I was expecting.

Well, I'M not the one trying to stick to Weight Watchers "Core" program!

And the ground beef that he brought home instead?

Now THOSE were burgers......

This late at night, when I should be re-vamping my script, and simplifying blocking and prop plots, and making cuts; and have nothing burgerish in the house -- should I really be obsessing about Great Cheesburgers?
Ah, well....

Contribution - Makes himself a priest.

Joseph Ryan,
dually known as Seósamh O' Riain; an irish native and former resident of Scariff, now residing in the Cathedral town of Ennis, County Clare Ireland, is a self acclaimed activist, first rising to notoriety when rejected as a deacon from Ireland's Roman Catholic Church, before full ordination was bestowed on him, by the Most Rev. Dr. William Walsh, Bishop of Kilaloe, over major disputes of opinion, unacceptable behaviour and theological conflicts regarding church dogma, straying from church teachings and breaking with his vow of obedience, publically decimating a papal document which criticised and offered condemnation of homosexual practices before an applauding street mob celebrating a gay pride event, who later turned their back on him, ostracising him on public media forums when he sought to extract several hundred thousands of euros to form a public campaign against the Vatican for canon reform; full capitalisation was never fully achieved and as a result Mr Ryan's role was dismissed as a personal vendetta and dropped by Irelands legitimate LGBT groups.
Described as a Walter Mitty character with an unconfirmed personal and academic history and crippled by psychosis, his dreams of senior office within the papacy never materialised. Shunned by the Roman Catholic Church and rejected from priestly life, Ryan, joined many schismatic orders who had notably broken communion with Rome, but was said so spiritually underdeveloped he failed in his vocations with all of them. Dejected, he styled as a self appointed catholic priest prescribing adlib, the seven sacraments of the parent church in which he was partially sacramentally endowed; but lacking in spiritual power and status to confer these himself; he adopted church attire and impersonated as a roman catholic cleric to the unsuspecting and those considered ineligible to participate in the rites of their baptism, particularly homosexuals and divorcee's.
Ryan, advertises and operates through his own blessing website, www.cunamhde.com selling disputably (in)valid catholic services in full stage show style for couples and their guests, using poorly, the full regalia of the Roman Church, to the dismay of his former church officials and attendee's.
Reformation Church:
According to the Reformed Catholic Church of America, a church in its' own right supporting monogamous and wedded homosexuality among its' clergy, members and laity. Joseph Ryan, joined their international ranks on a date unknown, firstly satisfying their inclusion criteria and identifying as an active member of the homosexual community. In his newfound role he claimed pastoral responsibility and territory over those communities, extending to include sufferers of HIV/AIDS, however many have never experienced his spiritual direction, and no trace of an Irish parish, church structure or members prove to exist.
Clerical Whispers:
It is widely believed within Church circles, Ryan, operates the antireligious blog site, 'clerical whispers', www.clericalwhispers.blogspot.com, punitively taking swipes at his former superiors and colleagues; sensationalising hot topics of church affairs in the mainstream media for which he attempts to receive a breaking fee. The content of this site forms heavily plagiarised, copyright and libellous materials, covering already common knowledge news features, interpolated with his own personal opinions attributed to negligible and vague external sources of traceability. Bashful and irreverent in ethos, it seeks to engage in negative commentary about many of the world's leading faith hierarchies and other public figures, something refrained from by the leadership of the reformation church of which he is now a member, under the Archbishop Phillip Zimmerman, RSJ. Columbus, Ohio, USA.
