Carthusians? Ok, that would be a lot for an active order like the Jesuits (or even for a layman like me!)

Forgive me but I don't get the final pic.
Do you stress over a computer for a particular reason?
Is it saying that you spend too much time on FB?
Are you stressed due to workload?
Grateful for any insights.

This is an awesome collage that coveys so much in six solitary pictures. Each of us in our own lives have analogous perceptions by others about what ''we do''. I can most relate to #6, which my friends and colleagues take to be #4. Tongue planted firmly in cheek, revealing realities that apply to all of us. Very funny, and much appreciated. I agree with the earlier, less verbose post: ''love it!''. Keep it coming.
