On July 26, Brad and I started out talking at Starbucks. Then we walked to the hovel and talked some more. Then we walked to lunch and talked more. In the evening, we walked to prayers and back.
James DiGiorgio emails: "I made it about half-way through your Jewish Journal UTube video before experiencing suicidal thoughts brought on by intense boredom. But before closing the window, I couldn’t help but notice the roll of toilet paper on your bookshelf within easy reach of your computer. I guess blogging ain’t the only thing you do while sitting in front of your PC."
That’s a roll of paper towels. There’s a lot of dust coming into the hovel from the garden outside and it is a relentless battle to keep the dirt out of my life.
JMT posts: "You should insist that all future photography/video of you have that screwed-up aspect ratio. It makes you look thinner. It even made the guy at the beginning of the clip look less jewy."
Jim Jones emails:
Way to get credited in print for something you DIDN’T write. Does the below e-mail ring a bell?
You know what the right thing to do is, I suppose…you ponce.
[Here's the email from Jim sent in my voice April 20:]

Cavanaugh’s spot-on regarding your loopy justifications. E-mails written in a parody of your voice and sent to mock you aren’t the same as a blanket go-ahead to pretend that you wrote something that you didn’t, but, no big deal, mate. You and I both know that your skills are weak. This is just another example. A real mensch would come clean about it, though.
