A message from Weird Al

A message from Weird Al

Three weeks ago, I attended the ACCC Conference in Melbourne and committed a fatal error. I spent a week without the Internet, which meant, of course, that I didn’t check my e-mail.

When I returned to the parish and opened my inbox, I was buried by a mountain of e-mail that took a week to sort and respond to. So that meant my blog-free week became a blog-free fortnight.

But then, because I am weak-willed and rely on routine, a third week passed by without blogging because I had dropped the habit. Luckily, in recent days, I have received so many e-mails about the blog’s demise that I’m motivated back into action — if only to avoid the formation of another mountain of unanswered e-mails!

I have a good spam filter, and I block any e-mails that have more than four recipients, but still I relate to this video by Weird Al Yankovic. It says it all really.

I’ll start blogging again in earnest tomorrow.

    I thought you and Max Lindenman might have headed off on a mancation.

    Block emails with more than four recipients? That’s cold man…

    • Gosh. Do you think so? I doubt anyone who sent me a mass e-mail has even noticed my silence. Apart from that, Facebook and blogging have largely supplanted multiple-recipient e-mail discussions. There was a time when I was always sending and receiving such e-mails, but the Internet has changed!

        Nah, not really. I’m just cut because there’d be about 20 emails from me in your garbage.

        I’ll be sure to forward them to you personally ASAP. Jokes…

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch… the interminable posting on apparitions. Surefire way to keep a blog humming while the Master is away…
