Posting less: book in the works

I may be mixing you up with people who care, but I'll be posting even less in the next two months so I can finish the book I've been working on for far too long.

Tentatively titled, Sex au Naturel: A Guide to Understanding and Explaining Catholic Teaching On Birth Control (Emmaus Road Press 2008.)

Please say a prayer for me.

Good luck on the book. I offer prayers for its success in return for prayers for my husband's dis.

Hi Laura: Thanks, and meaning no disrespect, but what is a "dis"?

I think she means "dissertation" but "dis" is appropriate because he uses it as an excuse to dis our family at gatherings.

He-he, just kidding. (Hope Laura doesn't come back round these parts.)

Ahhhh, so THAT is the true identity of "Laura." How lovely to have sisters as my sole two readers!

J -- did you get los fotografos de mi familia you requested? (I live in Mahoneyville so frequent usage of Spanish is now canonically required of the faithful.)

I emailed you a bunch of pics to the daveandjustine address.

Hi PD... if that is really you? Came upon your blog by sheerest accident, and hope you are who I think you are.

Last time I saw you, I think you were doing a Human Cannonball act in the SACateria.... but of course I was only 14 at the time, so I could be mistaken.

Anyway, best of luck with the book, and hope you stay sane in California!

Anon -- don't tease and torment me. Yes, I am indeed the Human Cannonball. Well, was. And who are you?

Hi again!

Yes, I can see you now in your Man from Glad suit!

It is Sarah (MacFarlane) Gaultois - Dilly's daughter. Nice to see you are doing so well!! Stumbling across your page made me think about you and Lalo and Huey and Mary and Joanne and all the others. Remember Lalo dancing with Naomi Hersom? Babel Rap? Humulus the Mute? Remember Dotto's vision of the moon(s) in "Phoenix"?

What a lucky teenager I was to be part of all that! It seems like a lifetime ago. We had a Playhouse reunion at the Mount a few years back at the Pub, and they made me do the 15 minute Hamlet again - mercifully without the kangaroo suit.

Mum just retired from Dal. I am married and have a 4 year old son, and am working at Dal in the Housing department and just finishing up my own degree after doing it part-time for about 15 years.

what a small place the internet is, eh? :)

Anyway, thanks for being so nice to me when I was a kid - I am sure I was a pain in the butt to have around at times, but I always remember all of you so fondly. I hope you are well and I know that Mum and I would love to see you and your family if you ever come home to Halifax.
