Stuff like that.
Hey - I apologize for not responding to emails and comments - I've been rather preoccupied lately - a lot on my mind...
- So - get this: Obama is the first black president and the country may have to go on welfare. How ironic.
- There is a bobble head doll of Bishop Trautman - who will be the first to send one to Fr. Z? You know he wants one.
- So - the usual complaints about the travesty of World Youth Day are beginning to be raised on conservative blogs for peace. Questions and commentary such as: What for? Oh! The liturgical abuses! The nakedness! The pope-olatry! Why can't Michael Voris talk about sex there? Nun's dancing? All the old church-ladies are complaining about nothing that concerns them... Not you Kat - I was really thinking of Alice here - you know Alice.
- Did you see the video of black men shooting up a bus in Philadelphia? Then at the Wisconsin State Fair black people were attacking white people. What up with that?
- So Cardinal Burke and Bishop Lori address the K of C at some sort of national convention, and praise the group, but Michael Voris resigned because the Knights of Columbus aren't Catholic enough. I wonder if Voris doesn't protest too much at times? FYI: Voris has Robert Redford looks - not Justin Beiber.
- The famine. Somalia. Stuff like this keeps happening - and it doesn't have to be this way.
- At the doctor's office the other day, the waiting room was full of Somalis. They all had insurance cards. I don't have health insurance so I'm self-pay - I'm fine with that. But seeing all the Somalis, who cannot speak English with insurance cards was weird however. Especially when my doctors ask me, 'when are you going to get insurance, so we can do more tests, treatment, etc..' I find it so strange, because I can't afford insurance, and I don't qualify for Somali-care... I wondered what St. Francis and his fiars would have done if they were required to have insurance? Even the poor in this country are not really poor. Not yet anyway.
- I've been reading Heather King lately. She strikes me as someone very authentic. She seems to be terribly popular now as well - popularity frequently is a stabilizing agent - one can find oneself part of an establishment after achieving some sort of recognition. I think that can inhibit spontaneity at times. It's a danger online. Anyway - King's friendship with St. Therese is refreshing - so she will most likely be fine.
- I've noticed how some blogs - or their authors, usually inhabit certain spaces, or rather become part of a hierarchy within their particular sub-group. I don't want to label the groups however - especially with terms such as neo-con or something else, since labels always end up being derogatory terms used in a disagreement. Within these sub-groups there is a sort of conformity of style and interest, as well as purpose... I'm not sure what I'm getting at, but some sort of conformity is expected, a certain decorum, etiquette and agreement is required in order to be included or accepted by them.
- Anyway - I can't do that with my blog or my online presence. I can't post for dollars or hits or comments; and never, ever for followers or 'friends'. I never want to be popular. I can't think of anything more restricting or uncreative.
Gotta go - all this coffee makes me have to pee.
