[OPEN THREAD] How will you decompress from GC 2009?
For me, it will be time with friends, maybe a movie [Star Trek or Harry Potter have my initial votes], and lots of time outdoors. I also have a lot of things to say to Jesus, and hope to hear some things from Him as well.
But the very best way to decompress from the clouds of vacuity, shallowness, shared stories of mutual suffering victimhood [here in the richest, freest, and most self-absorbed country in the world], and sheer ignorance, interspersed with brief outbursts of enraged rhetoric, that makes up The Episcopal Church at its highest legislative level, from the past ten days in the insane asylum is to read . . .
P. G. Wodehouse’s Mulliner Nights. I particularly recommend to you “The Story of Webster” [for all of those who have been owned by a cat], as well as “The Voice From the Past.”
Witty, brilliant writing, terribly amusing and buffoonish characters [that make us laugh at ourselves even as we firmly believe that we are far less buffoonish than these made-up-characters]. Unlike all the progressive witnesses at the microphones in Anaheim, the book deliberately wishes to make you to laugh out loud—and you will, without feeling guilty for doing so accidentally.
