"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Your jobs have been outsourced...
I just answered an 800 number phone call from an Indian or Pakistani service rep asking:
"Maieeeeee seek to Fahtee Nelson?"
"I'm sorry, what did you say?"
"Miae Ieeeeeeeeeee seek to Fahteee Nelson?"
"I'm sorry, you have the wrong number."
Something inaudible.
Now who told these guys that I've gained weight?
Poor Dottie Henkle.

  1. You've been pretty slow with your entries in the LJ Sweepstakes.

    But I'm pondering where that was a 3 or a 3.5. Pretty good for one sentence.

    Cath got her 5 LJ's with one sentence, with only 18 words in it.

    Fr. Finigan from Blackpool had 51 words in three sentences.

    I guess I'd have to give Cath the edge because of her economy of words, now that I'm making amendments to the rules.

    Maybe I'll have to spell out the judge's requirements for award thresholds.
