(OK, this was far too funny not to cut'n'paste it on this page as well - as usual, good old Davezilla makes me laugh even when I'm sad!!!)

The Litany of Bulletin Board Humility

O St. Isidore! meek and humble of heart,
Hear my modem.
From the desire of being recognized only by my screen name,
Deliver me, from spam.
From the desire of being a lurker ...
From the desire of being a cyber-stalker ...
From the desire of feeding the trolls ...
From the desire of OVER-USING THE CAPS LOCK ...
From the desire of over-using emoticons ;^) ...
From the desire of reposting what others have said ...
From the desire of reposting what others have said ...
From the desire of missing the point ...
From the desire of using the BBS as a soapbox ...
Deliver me.

Novena for a Reliable Connection

Most holy and afflicted Virgin, Queen of Martyrs, we venerate your sorrows, and place our request with dutiful confidence in the sanctuary of your heart.
Our Lady of Modems, hear us.
That our connections will not fail us during crappy weather,
Our Lady of Modems, hear us.
That our email be not lost when our ISP bites the big one,
Our Lady of Modems, hear us.
That our Instant Messages be not lost during a crucial part of the conversation,
Our Lady of Modems, hear us.
That our recent entries be not lost to Blogger’s server,
Our Lady of Modems, hear us.
That our poor coding practices do not cause our readers despair,
Our Lady of Modems, hear us. Amen.

Ye'll not get our treasure ye scalawag blowfish!

The day I finally get a Mac, I'm going to install this in it!!! Meanwhile, tho, I mean, while I use a pc (i.e. when I finally can be bothered and bring it to a technician so that it can be repaired, that is...), let's begin with this.



One more thing: isnt this hilarious? :-P

Today my little sister turns 22, so...



My lovely (and very clumsy) mother thought it was a good move to slip on a pavement and break her right wrist this morning...so, apparently, my sister's coming back home on Sunday, while Clumsy Mommy (and Dad) will stay in Eboli for a few more days as she started being "repaired" at the local hospital, so what's the point of coming back here before they've finished their work, huh? Anyways, she's really broken all records, as she only broke (sorry for the iteration...) her ankle over there (i.e. in Eboli) in January...apparently, she likes breaking her bones when she's in her hometown.

"Your first name of Giorgia has made you happiest when you are expressing in some creative, artistic way, and not conforming to strict routine. In a large group of comparative strangers, you are quiet and rather shy, unable to express yourself, not really wanting to become involved in conversation. On the other hand, among friends with whom you feel at ease, you are expressive, witty, and quite charming. These contrasting natures make it difficult for people to understand you and can lead to friction in your personal life. You are deep, philosophical, and refined, but your extremely sensitive nature causes you to become depressed and self-pitying over any real or imagined slight. If you are not careful, people take advantage of your generous nature. You find the beauties of nature, fine music, art, and literature--all the deeper things of life--inspiring. The reserved, sensitive side of your nature brings aloneness and friction into your life, although you crave affection and understanding. You must guard against emotional excesses, which could result in depletion of energy, creating a desire for quick-energy foods. You could suffer through skin irritations, blood conditions, back trouble, and later, through arthritis. Heart, lung, or bronchial weaknesses could also result."


...and now, just for the hell of it, let's try.....ROMEO!!!

"Your name of Romeo indicates qualities of a leader and organizer but a difficulty in concentrating and systematizing your efforts interferes with achieving your goals. You desire a good standard of living and the best quality in all your material possessions. You have a friendly nature, well-liked by others for your sense of humour and pleasant personality and you love parties and socializing in general. You could be musically or artistically inclined and may often be the "life" of the party and would enjoy finding expression in the entertainment field. You have a pleasure-loving nature, and although you have an ability to meet and mix with people on all levels, you tend to become involved in awkward emotional situations to your detriment. Deriving pleasure from giving to others, you enjoy spending money on them, but tend to be a spendthrift, and not build up a reserve for emergencies. You have a good appetite, and appreciate the best and richest foods. For this reason, you could possibly suffer with an over-heated bloodstream, which in turn affects the skin, causing rashes and eczema. "

(of course, he's getting bad skin like his mum...)
Oh Romeo, Romeo. Wherefore art thou Romeo?

[That's bloody cruel, if you ask me...I mean, Brooklyn sounded naff enough, but it seems they can only get worse!!!]

Deny thy father and refuse thy name!!!
