Ay Caramba...

See, this is why I hate posting every day. People feel like they don't need to comment anymore and then I feel totally unfulfilled. It's so discouraging to come here every day and see "Comments:0" I have found that refraining from television brings not only gobs more time, but also lowers my blood pressure. Nightly News is just a bad idea; even without the news I still know that people are dying every day in Iraq (and probably most other countries of the world, but never mind) and Afghanistan, that the government generally tries to take more money than it should and is mostly bureaucratic and incompetent, and that everybody who's anybody hates Bush. Wow! Why is it called "news" again? The hard part is not watching 24 and LOST while they're airing...have to wait for Sunday. But even that I'm getting used to. The first day of fine weather here in quite a while means that tennis practice will actually take place on tennis courts. How exciting; we will be able to desisist (I hope) running up and down stairs in the stadium and performing other heart racing activities. I watched part of the 1/2 hour news hour, which was disappointing. They're trying to be funny, but the weird thing is the news they're "reporting" should probably be better known, not just comedy fodder. That, and it was just a little over the top. But then most fake news shows are, I guess. But when I agree with them in principle, it makes me cringe...whereas when I disagree, I get to guffaw because they're so stupid. OH WELL.

Ahoy there! I'm one of those lurkers who has never gotten around to posting any comments.

Anyway, if you expect comments you should post something really thought provoking. I have lots of good ideas, such as whether Orcs have souls.

I remember hearing about this one guy a while back who, when asked if he read the newspaper, replied, "I don't read fiction."

"desisist", eh? I like it, but what does it mean?

Desisist: to cease with vigor. not to be confused with desist.

You can't let a lack of comments get you down. I'd have stopped a long time ago if I'd followed that train of thought. (Course, a lot of folks might be happier if I had.)

yeah, but your comment thing is weird...it was too complicated and I gave up. Otherwise I'd be bugging you all the time.

by the way, I saw the Prestige!

Cool. Now I will have to see if I can find a chance to use it...

Wait a minute - what's so complicated about posting on Fr. Barry's blog? I mean, I've done it, and I can't figure anything out.

And my understanding is that the first two episodes of the 1/2 hour news hour had to be taped several weeks ahead of time; hence the lack of current issues. Supposedly if after the first two they are given the go ahead by Fox, they will be much more up to date.

And over the top? Well, consider the source...

Well, I'm fine with being over the top, but it just wasn't that funny.
