Dame Julian

Friday night I had too much to drink. As I was making my way back from Harrah's to Circus Circus I was going to start an entry, but my phone died. By the time I got back to my room I managed to get the following notes to guide myself...and I understand

Francis. Fr. Ingram. Br. Abbott General. cn. dunnam. "all shall be well" emily scott. blog. drunk text.

What I was getting at is that I've just finished Glamorous Powers by Susan Howatch. I'll be blogging quotations from it very soon. I don't know why I was thinking about it while waiting for the bus, but I was. Throughout the book I pictured the character Francis Ingram as Cn. Dunnam. Lots of good quotations, but that's not the point of this entry.

The initial point of this entry was to avoid sending Emily Scott a drunk text...and now I know how I got to Cn.Dunnam/Francis. AS I walked from the piano bar to the bus stop and from the bus stop to my room I was singing in my head "All Shall Be Well," which I happened to be singing in San Francisco when I was last that intoxicated. It gave me something repetitive to think about to focus on accomplishing my objective of getting back to the hotel. In SF I was having a conversation with the bar tender and had to collect my thoughts before I could speak, that's what I had in my head.

I texted Emily about it then, but decided to blog about it Friday night since I was on Pacific TIme and it was late and she was in Eastern time. So I'm singing, "All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well," and remember that it plays prominently in the end of Glamorous Powers. Earlier in the book Francis said, "Must we bring Dame Julian into this!?" in an interview with Fr. Jonathan Darrow (the book's main character). Oh, Blogpress Lite, how you get my thoughts onto the interwebs. Drunk texting to a whole new level: blogging.

So, Fr. Jeff and other Commission members: I have fun. ;) Sometimes too much!


  1. Why would you ever AVOID sending me a drunk text?!??! They're the best ones!
