Soliloquy in an International Cloister

Watch your step as Brother Lawrence takes you inside the monastery walls of a five hundred year-old international order. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wish you had ignored your hormones and joined the monastery.

I'm tempted...

to get one of those blow-up dolls and take it to bed with me—after I've filled it with water and put it in the freezer for a few hours. I'll call her Sant'Artica.
"You can be on top every night, you naughty girl!"

If she gets a bit boring, I'm told you can also get blow-up sheep, BroLo. Lost sheep and all that being in the scriptures, so I'm told.

Thanks for the advice, Moobs. Sounds like the voice of experience.
Pog: too much hair. I like mine clean shaven.
Nikki: Belgian Waffle has agreed to buy new keyboards for those who ruin theirs reading this blog.
Claudia: Nope, not yet. I'm offering up my sufferings for the poor souls in purgatory.
Dirty: Come on back now, ya hear.

Christina, what have I told you about popping your gum?

Go spit it out. Remember your manners. (smacks you on the back of the head). He's a monk for crying out loud. I should have never shown you that link (wink).

Brolo, I'm so sorry, she should know better.

Great blog Brolo.

I do hope you don't mind my....uh...picture.

She's so abusive. I'm a preacher's wife and everything too! Hmmmfp!Isn't there some penance or something she should be doing? *smirks at nikki*

She made me swallow my gum.

Nikki, Christina: How about a nice mud wrestling match between the two of you to settle this?

Blogger Nikki said...

(spits spitball at Christina) - that's for asking about penance.

Um, no mud wrestling thank you.

But could you recommend a spa that has good mud?

I need a facial mud pack.

See? See!! Spitballs. So mature. *rolls eyes and fishes one out of her hair*

Mud? Hell, oops, HECK no! Last time she broke one of my nails and I was cleaning mud out of my ears for weeks. Evil woman....

Is it a breach of ones chastity vow if the partner is plastic?

I know it's rude, but I was just wondering since you um, brought it up.
