Our Lady of Guadalupe took my computer away and sent me back to the abbey - sort of. It was a wonderful break Poodles! Listen to this:
"If any man thinks he is religious without controlling his tongue, he's nuts!" - St. James
This blogging crap is empty bombast Poodles! We are shouting into a vortex...
We can't evangelize if we go on tearing one another to pieces. Anyway - most blogs simply preach to choir.
Just think about it. Envy, jealousy, stats, glorying in our conversions and graces and insights and degrees and accomplishments - listing all the books we read, making a wish list for more. Pumping up our friends count - pumping our friends full of...
"Oh children! There's just so much to tell you!" Said Maria excitedly, then she sang her "Favorite Things"! And told the Captain to go to ... no she didn't.
But I'm back - and I never ever want to write to please any of you ever again!
"You never did!" Said Cath, adding.
Which is why I love you!
So anyway - what a wonderful break from the Internet! What a wonderful life! Life is beautiful!
Yes - I had the FBI virus - along with 700 other icky things, cookies, trojans, creepy filthy things. The infected computer is a metaphor for the soul - we go online, engage in intercourse - even with trusted friends... ahem - and pick up ITD's - Internet Transmitted Diseases. Just punishment for our online sins. You get where I'm going. Adulterers. Adulterous generation. Greedy little pan-handling ... oops! How'd that get in there? So you see, we bring it on ourselves. Step into traffic...
So anyway. I'm no longer opening e-cards, attachments, photos, stupid office hi-jinks kitsch, or stuff like that any longer - not even from those people I know - I don't really know any of you BTW - Oh? Have we met? Not really Poodle. I deleted all of my recent emails without opening, and I'm not sure I'll ever open an email ever again. I don't know where you people have been or what you do with yourself, or your computers ...
So anyway - I'm back online. My hope renewed that I may be the most unpopular person ever to write a blog. I will never return to Facebook, I will never be on Twitter... the Pope can do what he likes. Ganswein too.
