Celebrating John Calvin's 500th Birthday

Today is the 500th anniversary of John Calvin's birthday, so here is how I plan to celebrate:

1. Throwing footstools at Anglican priests.
2. Accepting that I am double predestined to eat whatever my wife makes for dinner.
3. See more old queens than the time I visited Buckingham Palace.
4. Wear a kilt to church despite the fact that no one in my ancestry has been to Scotland in nearly 300 years.
5. Move to Ulster and pretend that it was mine all along, then move (back) to Appalachia.

All joking aside, a hat tip to all of my Reformed and/or Presbyterian on this day of great importance to them.

"Double predestination". I love it. Only someone as divine as the English Christian God could have it two ways. "For he is doubly wise: he will buy his groceries at Kroger and will not shop at Walmart." Whereas, the simple beings of the cosmos just shop at Kroger.

And since my great-gramma did go to Scotland back in the 50s to visit the area my family clan purportedly originated from- I should be able wear a kilt with pride. :)

Who doesn't love throwing footstools at Anglican priests?

BTW, there is an invite for all who want to partake in some tacky fun right in your hometown on my blog. Bouffant hairdo is, of course, not a requirement for anyone, much less dudes...but, some tacky clothes and a little slickback with some Dapper Dan might be fun if you felt like it. Or, just come as you are. All are welcome. Curmy's coming, but I doubt his curmudgeonliness will allow for any hairfoolery. Grasshopper's coming. Other folks are coming. Y'all come.

Sorry, can't make it, BB. I hope you have a whole helluvah lot of a good time, though.

Damon: No doubt. Calvin spends entirely too much time urinating on truck and NASCAR logos to be of much good these days.
