Too tired to come up with any original thoughts -

again, so........ever wonder what the internet is doing to your brain? Me either. But now that there's this fascinating little scientific report available, I can say it's really interesting: http://searchengineland.com/are-our-brains-becoming-googlized-15421.php . Take a look!

Glad to see I will still be able to use my laptop when I am in adult diapers.

Do not know what is scarier, a bunch of centenarian bloggers, the fact you posted this so late or I am reading it in the middle of the night!

Boy, you are a late-nighter! I saw your cute red mixer on Paul's blog (which I still have no idea how to leave a comment on). I have the same one. You will love it. Not like you love the Lord. Not like you love Paul. But you will love it. Trust me.

Yes, it seems like the tireder I am, the later I'm up. Counter-intuitive I admit, but it's my down/alone-time before going to bed, where I read a bit in a book before going to sleep. Plus, I didn't have to get up until 8:15 this morning!

Angela, you can comment on Paul's blog anonymously and then just sign your name at the end, like a letter. And I do love the mixer, just looking at it, since I haven't had a chance to use it yet.

Laurie - it's Kelly. You think you know nothing about technology?? I'm going to push this button below that says "publish your comment" and some strange magic may or may not happen to get this message to you.

Serious question - how did you know that Caravaggio's Conversion of St Paul was my favorite painting in the whole world??

KELLY!!!!

I did not know it was your favorite. It's my favorite as well, ever since art history in college. I wish I could see it in person. And Carravagio is just about my favorite artist.

Maybe we can get together next week. Howbout the day after Thanksgiving? E-mail me.

I think being engaged online is good for the brain. I am continuously learning new things. The work I've been involved in required these skills but now I'm so glad to be learning.

Hang in there Laurie!

Thanks for the encouragement, Debbie. I was in real need of a full day off, and I've got one today! I've spent the morning catching up on my reading in Edwards, very helpful. It's hard to trust God, and slow down when it seems like the race is going on without you.

It is good to know that blogging and learning on the web isn't a brain rotting activity like watching TV. I suppose, though, that plenty of brain rotting can occur over the internet as well; depends on what you're using it for.
