Useful Saints

Saint Anne: Patron Saint of Lost Objects. "Protector of lost objects, miners, broommakers, grandparents, and old-clothes dealers.

Prayer to Assist in Finding Your Stuff

Glorious St. Anne, I beseech thee to grant me guidance in finding all of those things I have lost. I also ask that you provide me with the foresight to put things in places that I will remember." (From the box of my very useful mini figurine of the saint herself. The box also includes the warning: Choking hazard. To be followed by the headline: Small Child Chokes on St. Anne)

Saint Brigid of Ireland:
"If you find yourself in need of a cold beer, just pray to Brigid, the patron saint of travelers, poets, and bastard children." (From The Traveling Death and Resurrection Show by Ariel Gore)

Between them, two of my most frequent life problems are solved.

Thai proverb of the day: A bad dancer blames music.

If Saint Anne is the Patron Saint of Lost Objects, who can I call on to help me lose 70,000 words?
