I'm not at Kinko's

I'm at some friend's, and they are allowing me to use their PC - it's an Apple - very brand new, state of the art. I will be cat sitting while my friends are in NYC and Washington - so I may be using their PC at times. Mine is supposed to be ready for pick up tomorrow. I think this is payback time for me for all the times I procrastinated over work I was expected to do for other people in the past.
.
Anyway, I just breezed through comments but I haven't checked my email - so please do not be offended that I haven't responded to any of you - time is short. Belinda - glad you were not mad about the joke. Mary - I was hoping someone took issue with the octuplet's mom comment - I love reactions to what I write. Thanks.
.
I finished the painting today - well there are a few details to add. I'm not totally happy with it - it is rather disturbing but I think it an interesting interpretation on the sin of Ham nonetheless. For Lent I'll do something religious. I can't wait for Lent - I have so much penance to do.
.
My friends have a web cam - I should do a show - disguised as Joaquin Phoenix of course. But I can't do it now.
.
It will be nearly 3 weeks since I've had Internet. I'm quite certain I'm not the only one who is either addicted or very attached to the net - surfing, reading, writing, corresponding. Now there is Twitter - in addition to Myspace and Facebook and who knows what else. I'm not judging anyone - but I suspect many people spend way too much time artificially connected to others online. We think it's real and we think we are contributing something to the conversation - but we aren't so much. If a person posts a lot - they are online a lot. Hours slip by, we check - even wait for comments - we want the feedback. (You know who you are.) Something is not right with that. Something is off in one's life, in one's vocation... (You know who you are.)
.
Anyway - if the just man is saved only with difficulty - then what about the rest of us? Oh yeah - and did you know that if you are not in the state of grace, then you are in mortal sin? Think about it.
.
Hopefully I'll be back online tomorrow or Tuesday.
.
Hugs and kisses!

  1. Nice to hear from you again! Say, I posted so much crap about you on Cathy's blog I was ready to post a letter of apology on my blog when I realized it lacked sincerity. I have since abandoned the effort:0) LOL!

    Glad to hear from you and I hope your back on duty full time tomorrow.

  2. I don't know what kind of arrangement you made with your computer repair geek, but three weeks for a repair is outrageously long.

    They could have built 50 computers in that time.

    The most difficult and lengthy thing about repairing computers is probably running the computer diagnostic tests that might take 12 hours. But that could be done overnight. Then, unless they had to order a part, it should have been fixed the next day.

    So I hope you don't have to pay them.

    Just tell them that you had to go to Kinko's and pay their outrageous fees about a dozen times and will be presenting them with a bill for your expenses while waiting.

    Praise God - Terrygorje has left us another message, another apparition. When will your oracles be regular again Terrygorje, or was this just a tease?

  6. Terry, an Abbey Roads Ustream show would be totally cool. Re Joaquin Phoenix...I'll have gum for you and you can use my Sophia Loren sunglasses. They sorta look like the ones Joaquin wore for the Letterman interview. What flavor of gum do you like? How long is your beard?

  7. Terry, were you gone? Just kidding--my guess is that you really just used that as an excuse so you could get some painting done--hopefully we'll get to see your new artwork soon.

    Welcome back to your addiction--ha, ha, ha, just wait--it will "suck" you back in--you won't get away from it taking all your time and energy so easily again.

    Besides that you feed my addiction to always see what you have to say--sheesh, what a vicious circle.

  9. Dear Terry,

    If you called my Mac a PC, you would be banished from using it ever again. You truly should apologize for that mix-up.
