Another Blog Gathering

I'm starting to think blogging is my life. Is that a good thing? This evening I met up with friends Cathy, Ray, and the Hadleys, all local bloggers whom I have previously met. Cathy, Ray, and I took the Rail from the 38th street station with a bunch of Twins fans headed to the game at the Metrodome.

Of course, the Rail was packed, but cleared out greatly at the 'Dome, allowing us to breathe a little bit. We were meeting the Hadleys (Mitchell and Judith) at The Little Red Wagon on 4th street Downtown. And we had a great time.

Cool thing...the restaurant had the Twins v. Indians game up on a big screen at at one point I saw a guy who had been standing (trying not to fall down) on the train with us en route there. He looked like he was having a good time, although the Twins had their rear ends handed to them this evening. * sigh *

En route back on the Rail, two guys stepped on, accompanied by a nearly-visible cloud of pot smoke. And by the way one of them was rapping (yes, really), they'd been greatly enjoying their ditchweed for quite awhile. Cathy, always ready with a quip, snarked quietly, "I'll bet that rap must be really profound when you're high on pot!"

Thankfully they disembarked a station or two later, and the cloud went with them. Personally, I'm offended. I mean, if they're going to bring a cloud of potsmoke with them, the least they can do is be as funny as Cheech and Chong! But this day and age, we get bad rap!

But I digress. It's always fun to see my friends, especially those who don't live in the same corner of my world, and it's literally been a couple years since I've seen my good friends the Hadleys.

Yet this brings up a new point. I have to ask; is it now a GOOD idea to meet people via the internet? Isn't that dangerous? But there it is; I've met some wonderful friends thanks to the medium of Catholic blogging and my life is better for knowing these people. (Um...I hope they can say the same about me!)

So I am doing some research to see what St. Thomas Aquinas has to say about this issue. More to come!

Yes, I can say the same about you, my friend!

Sorry, I'm so tardy getting over here to read this post but the same guys were in the car in front of me on the way home! :-)

Say hi to my other buddy!
