I can’t say it was entirely unexpected, after all, I knew that I was on the short list last time around. Apparently, the work that I have done with Idol has been noticed and they wanted to speed up the process of getting me on board. So Ratzinger is resigning at the end of the month, and I will be officially announced soon after that!
It’s going to be a lot of fun! I’ve already been writing out some practice decrees, so that I will be prepared to get the ball rolling, in the right direction on Day 1! And by “right direction”, I of course mean activating the Vatican Monkey Army for immediate deployment!
The transition from a “free world” to “under my boot” will be startling for some people I’m sure. But hopefully they won’t last long anyway…
Until then though – we have a poll! Or, as I like to call it “practice for global domination”! http://www.livejournal.com/poll/?id=1895227
