Tuesday, May 04th, 2010 Diary Entry
Yesterday I watched the Pope pay attention to a probably-fake shroud of Turin along with a whole bunch of nuns, and it was eerie because they were just staring- there was no noise or reporting in this video… just air blowing through the microphone. Luken thinks they’re being “stupid” and so does most everyone else- haha srsly I know you want to seem like you’re doing something cool but you need better pr, Church. Luken views the shroud as a waste of time.
But it was interesting that I could watch the activity of the Church from thousands of miles away on a shitty playback- I was planning a vacation in like 50 other tabs. Ah, the blessings of the modern age.
And the vacation went wonderfully! …even if, when arriving at the wine tasting, I found that I had forgotten my ID. I had forgotten that it is illegal for anyone who looks like me to drink without being carded, sigh. No matter that I am in fact legal; bureaucracy intervened. Sooo what happens but that a man comes by who makes it possible for me to go both hang gliding and then to a lovely hotel? =] Flying over those vistas was amazing.
And happy birthday Alice!
