Cleansing Fire

Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

Wild Ink Encountered!

June 10th, 2010, Promulgated by Ink

Wild Ink used Intro. It’s super effective!

Hello, Cleansing Fire world. My latest and greatest screenname is Ink, and I am a high school student in the DoR. I write the blog “What Happened Here?” over on blogspot and am trying to figure out how to fix the diocese from the inside. I am an altar server (though female, I know, not really great) and a lector at my local parish whenever I get the chance. I love Latin Mass and tend to rave about it on my blog whenever I go. Catholic/ChristianĀ authors (especially around the twentieth century like G.K. Chesterton, J.R.R. TolkienĀ and C.S. Lewis) are some of my favourite reading material (and blogs, of course!) and if anyone has suggestions, I’ll do my best to take them.

Reader used Crickets Chirping. Critical Hit! Wild Ink has fainted.

    I think the Pokemon reference could be drawn out to include epic battles between the bishop and orthodox parishioners at STA. lol

  2. Ink says:

    XD I like that idea! If anyone has information, email it to me and I’ll write them up.

  3. Marcus says:

    Good to see you on Cleansing Fire, Ink! I look forward to reading more of your posts in the future. Keep up the good work!

  4. Christopher says:

    I’m surprised Gen knew the pokemon reference, I thought he was like 85 yrs old or something…

  5. Abaccio says:

    Jolly old St. Gen is a 30-something computer geek, so OF COURSE he’d get the pokemon reference.

    I, on the other hand, did not. Alas, being old has its downfalls I suppose.

  6. Ink says:

    I’m just glad anyone got it. >_>; I think I just revealed my secret identity as a complete geek…

  7. Gen says:

    My nephews sucked me into the universe of Pokemon, Christopher. Don’t think ill of me. lol It broke my heart (not really) to tell them I didn’t care if the special Pikachu card was holographic, and that I wouldn’t pay 50 dollars for a piece of paper with foil glued on it.

  8. Ink says:

    Oh, but it’s SHINY, Gen. Which is not to be confused with Shiny. (And if anyone gets that particular little obscurity, kudos! You are officially a total nerd.)

  9. Christina says:

    Did not get the Pokemon reference…and I’m under 30. Which makes me doubt my “getting” of the SHINY as being a reference to Firefly.

  10. Defend Us In Battle says:

    Oh wow… I am so glad I am not the only one to pick up on the Pokemon/role playing reference.

  11. Ink says:

    Christina: Firefly? Shame on me, I actually didn’t relate that. A Shiny Pokemon is super-rare, and only in Diamond and Pearl versions, at least as far as I know. Maybe Heart Gold and Soul Silver have them…? But they’re special.

  12. Nerina says:

    First of all, Ink, nice to meet you! Second, I feel so old and out of touch. I didn’t get any of the above-mentioned references. Sigh. And I have five kids. How could this be? Oh, well. Ink, I’m glad you are a geek and you have great taste in literature.

  13. Nerina says:

    Ink, I’ve just checked out your blog. You, my friend, are a jewel. Please tell me the parenting secrets your folks used to raise such a knowledgeable and seemingly well-adjusted child! What other teen could say the verse “say the black, do the red – it’s color-coded people.” Love it!

  14. Ink says:

    Nerina, if you comment on stuff on my blog, Mum reads it. =P I’m sure she’ll reply if you ask a question. Though frankly, I figure the Catholic Church tries to make things idiot-proof… but in the words of I-don’t-remember-who, idiots are just too ingenious.

  15. Ink's Mum says:

    @Nerina: Thanks for the kind word to and about Ink. All parenting credit goes to BVM (in our house affectionately known as “Big Mary”), Joseph, and the Holy Spirit.
