Cause/Effect McCain, Milano, Shatner & Confession

Ok let’s start from the beginning.

After a tena­cious effort on Stacy part Alyssa Milano gives Robert Stacy McCain a tweet.

Stacy being prop­erly grate­ful remem­bers said re-​tweet and in the mid­dle of a rule five style post involv­ing Ace chooses instead to defend her honor. At the end of an emo­tional day off the net I notice Stacy’s post, write a lit­tle some­thing about honor and loy­alty and bring up my own tweet from William Shat­ner.

Said tweet in the eyes of my sons and their col­lege friends still pro­duc­ing a higher cool­ness fac­tor in their eyes than 2 years on the radio and cre­den­tials for Pres­i­den­tial events and Scott Brown debates.

Stacy notices the post, and tweets out sug­ges­tions con­cern­ing bring­ing said fundraiser to a suc­cess­ful con­clu­sion and said tweets end up gen­er­at­ing his own tweet from William Shatner,

and a fol­low up post on the subject.

Now despite efforts from loyal read­ers early on (Thanks to all of you) and some push­ing from Sissy Wills my fundraiser had been dead in the water for days. I’ve been won­der­ing how I was going to pay a bill due Thursday.

When I woke up this morn­ing on this twelfth day of Christ­mas with my wife at work I turned on the lap­top and checked e-​mail and found I had tip jar hits from Bren­dan, Tan­jia, Two Roberts and Jeff which were enough to bring me over the top to solve my problem.

Before any­thing else let me thank them and all the oth­ers who kicked in to get to my $600 goal but lets look at the events one more time.

Alyssa Milano tweets Stacy, William Shat­ner Tweets me, Stacy put up a post defend­ing Alyssa Milano, I post on Stacy Loy­alty, Stacy notices my post, tweets out my fundraiser, Stacy is Tweeted by Shat­ner, Stacy posts on the Shat­ner Tweet, I wake up and my fundraiser is com­pleted successfully.

Appar­ently with­out Alyssa Milano and William Shat­ner tweet­ing my friend Stacy, he doesn’t post on my fundraiser and it doesn’t end suc­cess­fully, but there is one more event in this sequence I didn’t men­tion yet.

Although her funeral mass was yes­ter­day, my mother died on Dec 13th. It had been a mis­er­able Christ­mas for me and mine, we really didn’t cel­e­brate and almost every fam­ily tra­di­tion from the open house on down was dis­carded this year and I did a hor­ri­ble job of bring­ing the fam­ily out of a faith­less funk of a Christ­mas Season.

I last went to con­fes­sion the day before my mother died. Yes­ter­day I finally went to con­fes­sion again.

Within 24 hours of that con­fes­sion Stacy Writes his post, I write mine, Shat­ner Tweets Stacy, Stacy Writes his fol­low up post and my fundraiser ends successfully.

My thanks to Stacy, Bill, Alyssa and all the tip jar hit­ters for their actions lead­ing to these events, but I believe the first thanks goes to the one who pro­vided the grace to allow these events to take place.

As a very Catholic Blog­ger you would think I wouldn’t need to be reminded of these things, but then again peo­ple for­get that even the Pope has a confessor.

Ok let’s start from the beginning.

After a tenacious effort on Stacy part Alyssa Milano gives Robert Stacy McCain a tweet.

Stacy being properly grateful remembers said re-tweet and in the middle of a rule five style post involving Ace chooses instead to defend her honor. At the end of an emotional day off the net I notice Stacy’s post, write a little something about honor and loyalty and bring up my own tweet from William Shatner.

 

Said tweet in the eyes of my sons and their college friends still producing a higher coolness factor in their eyes than 2 years on the radio and credentials for Presidential events and Scott Brown debates.

Stacy notices the post, and tweets out suggestions concerning bringing said fundraiser to a successful conclusion and said tweets end up generating his own tweet from William Shatner,

 

and a follow up post on the subject.

Now despite efforts from loyal readers early on (Thanks to all of you) and some pushing from Sissy Wills my fundraiser had been dead in the water for days. I’ve been wondering how I was going to pay a bill due Thursday.

When I woke up this morning on this twelfth day of Christmas with my wife at work I turned on the laptop and checked e-mail and found I had tip jar hits from Brendan, Tanjia, Two Roberts and Jeff which were enough to bring me over the top to solve my problem.

Before anything else let me thank them and all the others who kicked in to get to my $600 goal but lets look at the events one more time.

Alyssa Milano tweets Stacy, William Shatner Tweets me, Stacy put up a post defending Alyssa Milano, I post on Stacy Loyalty, Stacy notices my post, tweets out my fundraiser, Stacy is Tweeted by Shatner, Stacy posts on the Shatner Tweet, I wake up and my fundraiser is completed successfully.

Apparently without Alyssa Milano and William Shatner tweeting my friend Stacy, he doesn’t post on my fundraiser and it doesn’t end successfully, but there is one more event in this sequence I didn’t mention yet.

Although her funeral mass was yesterday, my mother died on Dec 13th. It had been a miserable Christmas for me and mine, we really didn’t celebrate and almost every family tradition from the open house on down was discarded this year and I did a horrible job of bringing the family out of a faithless funk of a Christmas Season.

I last went to confession the day before my mother died. Yesterday I finally went to confession again.

Within 24 hours of that confession Stacy Writes his post, I write mine, Shatner Tweets Stacy, Stacy Writes his follow up post and my fundraiser ends successfully.

My thanks to Stacy, Bill, Alyssa and all the tip jar hitters for their actions leading to these events, but I believe the first thanks goes to the one who provided the grace to allow these events to take place.

As a very Catholic Blogger you would think I wouldn’t need to be reminded of these things, but then again people forget that even the Pope has a confessor.
