I had the pleasure last night of attending Mass at the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Old Town San Diego, after which I broke bread (okay, tortilla chips) with Karen, the Gem of the Ocean. I have never met a fellow blogger in real life before and the conversation was as refreshing and funny as her blog's writings.
Oh yes, and the Sainted Fr. S. is a cherub and a delight. I very much enjoyed talking to him after Mass and he graciously blessed me and the Digikids.
Karen, we will get together again in 2008. I saw your comment about my obscure musical leanings, so as a shout out to a topic we covered last night, here's a link to one of my favorite rock songs, noted for some outstanding guitar playing but enjoyed by me more so for the title and lyrics of the song (unfortunately Sony Music disabled the embedding, so a link to YouTube will have to suffice): Cult of Personality by Living Colour.
