I hate to call it “best of…”

I’m not really comfortable calling this a post of “best of The Anchoress” posts, because it sounds so darn egotistical (It’s all about ME!) and also because I don’t even know if these are really “best” posts. But they are posts people have from time-to-time asked me to repost in full. I’ve only reposted two essays, ever, I think, ne about The Vagina Monologues and one about the Shiavo matter.

These are some earlier efforts from when I was getting about 250 hits a day. I figured I’d post them and if you like ‘em great. If you don’t like ‘em…at least I’ve given you something to read while I’m on vacation! :-)

So, how did my retreat go?

When the press blocked my view of John Kerry.

A month before my brother passed.

And then we lost him.

I understand there is an internet cafe available, so I may be popping in here to write a blurb or two! Don’t forget to check in once in a while while I’m gone! And God bless y’all! :-)

    Yes, have a safe journey, relax, breath out, re-charge! . . . . . Does anyone out there know in what category the “The Vagina Monologues” are posted. Thanks, Alan.

    Do hope you enjoy your trip to Ireland. My great-grandfather, at the insistence of his German wife, had the “O” legally dropped from the name “O’Higgins.” My father is not sure why. My own suspicion is that maybe it had to do with the discrimination against the Irish. Regardless, I’m a descendant on my paternal side of the O’Higgins Family of County Sligo and I envy you your trip, as I’ve yet to make it back to the “old country” and my roots! Someday, hopefully! Meanwhile, I’ll miss you!

    Enjoy your trip. Take lots of pictures!

    Yup, this will give me enough to keep me busy, and a great look into what I may have missed.

    Be safe!

    What! The Anchoress takes a holiday?? Where will I get my no-holds barred anti-the whole MSM hogwash posts from…sigh.

    Oh well.

    In the meantime, I’d like to offer my latest post to you and your readers.

    I’ve just “ended” coverage of the Papal Ascension on my blog.

    In the blogpiece I mention below, I wrap-up all my thoughts since 2 April, and hope it may please some of you.
