I am in transit and attending a conference many miles away from home.

And you know how much I hate traveling far from home, if the destination is not Rome.

No guest blogger; I will try to keep you amused for the next few days, on my own!

Don’t forget to check The SummaBlog for fast links, and the Catholic Portal Landing Page for all the latest columns and features!

    Safe travels! Wish I were going….

    You are not mean. In fact, you are really very sweet. Have a nice trip.

  • Manny

    Terrye – she’s the meanest administrator on Catholic portal. :-P

    Travel safely Anchoress and do have a nice trip.

    I saw someone recently who had filled out his “Hello my name is” sticker with:


    and underneath that put

    “you killed my father. Prepare to die.”

    (what else?)

    At least you didn’t complete your name tag using the odd syntax adopted by many restaurant wait staff: “Hello, my name is Mitch if you have any questions.” I always want to ask what his name is if I don’t have any questions.

    And of course it’s going to make an anchoress feel mean to be uprooted (except for Rome). I hope Mr. Christopher–OK, so he’s not a saint anymore but I can still invoke the legend–speeds and protects your travels. Looking forward to the crumbs you drop along the trail.

    Manny, ahh I don’t believe it.

    Terrye – I think she’s the only administrator on Catholic Portal. She’s both the meanest and the nicest. ;)

    Rumor has it she is in Pittsburgh. Great town.
