Our Cyber-Party

Thats me on the bottom right, partying in the Boaz lounge. And it was a lot of fun. Great to see my friends from all over the world and for them to meet each other. Lots of bloggers turned up. Unfortunately, i neglected the actual party going on in my house and it was a little rude of me to have my face in the computer screen when i had such great guests (including Alan Cross from USA and my flesh-n-blood church homies like P-Tan and Mags).
That was the downside. It wasn’t as seemless as i had hoped. The computer sucks me into it. I think a web cam system would have worked better to extend our pizza party, rather than trying to simulate it virtually in real time.

Well . . . My wife is a little upset at my last few days of geekdom. They were very creative and productive days (3 rooms, 2 parties, including a 24-7 prayer room online that people are now using) but i need to renounce the computer for the weekend as my penance for anti-social behavior at home. This Geek must repent.
Soooo . . . i will NOT be blogging this weekend, will NOT be reading your comments, NOT be making an appearance in my cyberspaces.
Hope you can make it Tuesday night for Suddenly Seminary. I will announce the time on Monday.
Have a great weekend!!!!!!

    You look so young and handsome in cyberspace.
    You asked what subjects we’d like discussed in Suddenly Seminary, well several thoughts came to mind. First, a great explaination of the good news and why it’s revelant to this generation. Second,a meaty discipliship plan. Last a giftness and spiritual abilities section with a link where people can connect and serve. That’s what came to my mind. I hope it’s helpful. Good luck Andrew.

    I did think we were seeing quite a lot of you (albeit sometimes possessed by tinyskinnykiwis…)
    Pass on our thanks to your wife for hosting a great party for us all last night!

    Andrew, you rule, that’s incredibly cool.

  • Andrew says:

    i saw your room-= very good. well done. there will be a lot of us soon. it feels like the early days of blogging, but it is happening a lot faster.
    i think you are right – simple stuff!
    i know you have been teaching the wordless book to kids. Why not start a room with 5 colors and tell the story thru props inside it. I am sure CEF wouldnt mind?

    weird … my “avatar” character looks a lot like me, too, jonnyjpg. i’m almost that pale, though not from goth-o-matic-make-up. just got to stay out of the sun (no, not ex-vampire; just have had skin cancer so i’ve had my dose of ultraviolet light for a lifetime already!). i must be a tattoo artist’s dream … or nightmare!

    well….hmmm my wife is enjoying her first few days of geekdom!
    she is enjoying habbo hotel more than me!
    soon (like tomorrow!) we will be needing broadband and a second apple mac….
    never thought the day would come when Magz would spend more time in virtuality than i!
    o looking forward to suddenly being in seminary tomorrow
