When U Blog with The Pope
Fellow bloggers and I have had several uplifting blog conversations with Pope Benedict XVI & I must say he's one avid blogger with a down-to-earth personality. He has an amazing sense of humor and the wit of the guy next door. He gives and takes advice and can even take up any challenge. A blogger friend & I discussed this & we both agreed that so long as this Pope doesn't forget & overstep the boundaries, he'll do fine online & not offend anyone:) For instance:
The Pope needed ideas on his new ride. I suggested an Escalade & to do smth Will Smith said, then I asked: "Would it offend you to call you Ben? Or you don't do the 1st name thing?" and his reply was: "I like the way you think. I need to check out Will Smith's video. Call me Joe." so, to me he's Pope Joe.
Be good & he comes around & blesses your blog with a comment or two. He even suggested on one of my posts that he could take on both fmr Pres. Moi & Garang in a wrestling match. Quite a strong, active Pope this Benedict, sorry, Joe is ! Some people ask him for money, others ask for blessings, you know the everyday stuff that a regular Pope does for regular people. This regular Pope also discusses regular stuff like which unique ringtone to get for his mobile, dealing with Mo' money problems etc.
So, The Vatican too far for you? International calls too expensive? Hey, Blog with the Pope at:
