Random Thoughts

I need to download some files to make room for new things, so this could be stream of consciousness.

I think I'm on the wrong side of the street. Saturday morning, as I returned to the Cathedral from a planning meeting for Cincinnati2000 retreat, there was an event of some kind going on at the Plum Street Temple. I saw a very sleek looking, black Mercedes SL500 and a Maybach sitting on the street! I admit that cars are a particular weakness of mine, so if any of my loyal readers (all 5 of you!) have an extra Mayback laying around, I can take that off your hands for you.

Why would anyone want to work in an office? After 8 months now of working in an office building, I can firmly say that it is driving me crazy! I think of all the souls that I release from Purgatory every time I ride the elevator up to the 8th floor. I can't imagine that there are going to be very many souls left after a few months. How do you that have worked in office buildings for years handle it? I miss being around people! The extrovert in me is screaming!

Back to the cars, the entry lists for both Sebring 12 hour and the LeMans 24 have been released. No big surprises that I saw, except that the French classic stacked 6 Aston Martins against 4 Corvettes. Once again, I'm rooting for the boys in Yellow to triumph. (Man are those cars LOUD!)

Hospital runs. Another call that I hate to get came yesterday. My friend was at the hospital with her one month old facing the possibility of surgery. YIKES! She calles to ask if she should baptize him, then I can supply the rites in a few weeks when scheduled. "I don't know! I work in an office!" Two of my priest buddies came to my rescue to say: "STUPID, YES! Get up there and do it for her!" I grabbed my books and headed up to Children's. Luckily, by the time I got there things had settled down and there was no surgery in little Jack's future, just a week's worth of anti-biotics.

Well, that gives a little bit of room in my head. What kind of useless junk will fill it next, I wonder?

You really ought to get more sleep.

Uhhhh, tell me something I don't know.

The good thing is, there are so many voices in my head I am never alone. It is just trying to make sure that I'm still the one in charge that's really difficult!

After growing up with you I've realized you are a little weird (ha). But admitting to hearing voices in your head. I think you need some sleep - welcome to my world.
