Comic 526 – “Telethon!”
Errol: I am not the meditating type. This is not to say people don’t need to meditate. I know of some who do. In fact, there is this service at my church where all they do is meditate for an hour.
I don’t go to that.
Debs: I like how you say “all they do is meditate for an hour” like an hour’s a lot.
Anyway, I am thinking of doing some sort of 6 hour telethon where we promote the NaNoMusical IndieGogo campaign. We would stream a google hangout. It could be fun. Maybe we can sing. Do commentaries on the musical. Who knows.
Or maybe you can watch me knit.
On a practical note, you’ll need to restart the streaming partway through, because I know from the p4a livestream that google caps these things at 4 hours currently.
Oh! Thanks! Did not know that… how IS P4A going anyway? I haven’t heard anything about it…
Last information I had I passed straight on to you- I’ve heard nothing since then…
Ya… me neither… *sigh*
I’ve never actually been in a Google hang out. I think my publisher may well kill me if I go to one, since I argued against using them for a meeting with my editor, lol. But I’ll send tons and tons of warm wishes. (I dislike web cam chat rooms)
Don’t worry, Lore Hera. You can watch on youtube… and don’t have to show your face, or anything. It will be a stream, and you can be completely anonymous!
So I’ve gotten one of my two best friends into the Nano video and back reading the comics and all that. We’re sitting and watching anime, when suddenly she starts looking around, all upset seeming, then I notice her eying the now empty bag of chips she had been munching on. I asked if she was out, she said “Just call me Errol”, after asking if there were more hiding under a chair somewhere, I did get her permission before posting this. 🙂
PA HAHAHAHA, that made my day
HUZZAH! MOAR ERROL’S! 😀 😀
Now I want chips…
She says (As she reads over my shoulder) “I’m a girl, not an Errol!” I asked if she had anything more to say, she said “Nothing witty that I could come up with at the moment,” then made me retype it so that it made sense.
Totally did not stalk you here… XD
HA! You can’t go to bed now that I can see you, mwa ha ha ha ha, totally kidding. Sweet dreams. You’re reading this over my shoulder, aren’t you?
Are you guys bunkmates or something?
I spent the last few days staying over her place. Unfortunately we both spent those days sick. X.X
Stupid computer cut me off before I finished. I was sick nearly the whole time, her less so, thankfully.
Huzzah for the stalkings! 😀
So the only way surefire way not to be an Errol is to be a girl? 😀
I love to meditate, although I don’t do it very often.
With my ADD I’m not good at sitting still doing nothing, but somehow I tricked my brain into believing that meditating is actually doing something (I am focusing on breathing) so I can meditate.
sigh… I keep reading this as medicate… though it makes for interesting interpretations sometimes..
Why can’t knitting be meditating?
It is! My friend was telling me about the meditating powers of knitting and the studies that have been done on it! It’s just another way to get your brain into the meditation state.
Sigh… I can’t log in right. Blergh.
Google hangout sounds fun. But there is a good chance I will forget between now & then.
Don’t worry, I will constantly announce. And it will be a live stream you can watch on youtube. So you don’t need G+!
Might be an idea to let us know roughly what timeslot you’re thinking of- for those of us who have church services to be at on a sunday.
I’m thinking 2pm – evening EST
Heck, I’m willing to go as late as I can. 😀
Thanks for the info- I’ll probably miss the first bit getting back from the evening service at church (I have projection duty most church services), but thereafter, I should be able to lurk for most if not all of the evening.
HUZZAH! We will be going late! 😀
The not Errol posted, but her post is awaiting moderation. I can’t wait to see what she said. :: tries to peek over shoulder::
The not-Errol post has come through! YAY!
Okay, I may be a drop overtired.
I approved! I approved!
I’d watch you knit… I’m sure you’d find a way to make knitting quite amusing…
No… it’s quite dull. Trust me. Next time I google hangout and knit with people, I’ll invite you to the hangout and you can see how extremely dull it is.
I guess I’d have to learn to knit. *goes to find knitting needles*
I’d put you on the Google Hangout in the background…sort of like one of those videos of a log fireplace. Knitting With Errol: A Soothing Background DeStimulant. 🙂
I’m really quiet when I knit, believe it or not. 😀
I’d never have thought… 😀
I always hought of knitting as a kind f moving meditation. You don’t have to be still to meditate. I got to go to a sema last week and do Sufi whirling. Really amazing exerience. I need to investigate more about this.
When I knit, I bring up G+ hangouts and chat with people. 😀
I can’t believe Debs meditation retreat doesn’t allow knitting!
