Finding faith

By Mir
August 30, 2007

The piles on my desk threaten to topple over, I’m behind on several things, there’s laundry to be done, I apparently volunteered to provide a “treat” (“Oh, you can just bake something, Mama”) for Chickadee’s class tomorrow, I still cannot find my sewing kit, and I’m too sleepy to make the coffee properly.

Of course, none of this matters. Not since the mail came yesterday. Not since I was touched by His noodly appendage.


  1. HG

    I must have one of those. I must.

  2. Vanda

    Greetings from across the pond.

    I want one of those too. Shame bumper stickers aren’t very popular over here.v

    Vanda – it’s not a sticker (well, not a flat one), it’s a bas-relief of deific wonderment. Truly ya’ll over there don’t have these? We have the Fish of Faith, the Darwin Fishy Thing of Legs (and No Faith Except in Evolution), and the Fish of Faith eating the Darwin Fishy Thing just to show ‘im. Which, by the way, I think is quite funny since it sorta kinda proves evolution in a strange faith-like way.

    Anyway, I do agree. Seeeerious coveting going on here.

    and the Gefilte fishy!

    You know, that FSM might be just the thing for our vehicle. I think it kind of demands to be put on an ancient VW camper van, don’t you?

  6. Woman with Kids

    I love that… “touched by His noodly appendage…” Why, I feel blessed to have read this.

    Must get FSM in my life and know the love of s’ghetti.

  7. Kristen

    thank God for Wiki. I have to get out more often…

  8. SusieJ

    Very cool. I must find one…

  9. RuthWells

    My nine-year-old, also known as the Carbo-phile, needs one of these, I think.

    I am feeling particularly without faith today, so thanks for this post.

  10. Ayla-Monic

    I’d like to be touched by his noodly appendage… er… perhaps I should rephrase that…

    I want one!

  11. Susan

    Oooh you just gave me a good idea for dinner.

    Thank you!

  12. Ei

    Giggle. It makes me so happy to know that the good news is being spread. Argh. Congrats on being noodled, Mir.

  13. Lady M

    ha! Those appendages are so hilarious. I’d be too afraid some extremist would key my car when he saw it.

  14. Ani

    Ok, I will admit to haveing been totally ignorant of the FSM. And now I must go find one, because I’m stuck in fundamendalist stomping grounds, and I think that is the funniest thing I’ve seen in the entire evolution-ID argument.

    Wait, must get two. After all…my sister lives in Kansas. She needs one.

  15. Suzie

    That is FANTASTIC! Not only and I impressed that you actually put it on your car, but I’m seriously thinking of slapping one on my DH’s car! He’s so anti-fundamentalist it isn’t even funny. This is just up his alley. Off to hunt up the Church of the FSM!

  16. Cele

    I’m anxious to see how many questions you get about it. And will they understand the church of the flying spaghetti monster? Because some people have just no…

  17. Barb Cooper

    RuthWells: Your child is a carbo-phile? How does one achieve THAT? My oldest daughter now only eats high-glycemic carbohydrates. And steak, once a week on Steak Night.

    Hey, maybe my daughter is just more spiritually evolved than we are and is a Pastafarian!

  18. Lori N

    Can you say Christmas present for my husband?! Where, oh where did you get it?

  19. Not The Mama

    Ooh. I’ve been so tempted to get one of those myself. I love the FSM.

  20. hannita

    His noodley appendage is quite powerful.
    In pasta we trust.

    Love the FSM even though I am a seminary student. Hee.

  21. jean

    Actually I think it’s kinda scary looking. And weird in a funny sort of way. Good luck with that.

  22. BOSSY

    No no no, how many times does Bossy have to tell you: Strong Coffee is the priority. The other soldiers fall in line.

  23. Sarah

    Coffee first, then all other things will make more sense!

  24. Burgh Baby's Mom

    Thank you so much for sharing the FSM links with us a few days ago. I haven’t yet rec’d my identical vehicular modification, but I really hope it comes tomorrow. While my born again Mother-in-law is still in town visiting. Me loves me some disapproving glares, yes I do. Long live the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

  25. Manic Mommy

    With caffeine, all things are possible.

    I may get one if for no other reason than to watch my holier-than-thou brother-in-law go apoplectic.

  26. Manic Mommy

    PS – Nice lookin’ car ;-)

  27. susan

    Yes, but how does it taste with bacon salt?

  28. ri

    hehe love it :)

  29. Katie

    Perfect! Although I’m still a member of the Church of Sponge Bob, think I can be in both?
