|Auto response from TaoMan1121 (9:28:05 PM): Do you know why they call it the "Super Bowl?" No, it's not a joke, guys, seriously, why the HELL is it called the that?! Off enjoying entertaining commercialism and John Madden's witty tailgating remarks.
CWBrand (9:28:05 PM): well....there was originally two different leagues...the NFC (Napolean For Chancellor) and the AFC (American Fried Chicken). Well 37 years ago, George Washington sailed across the Altlantic ocean in search of Religious freedom and to be on TRL. It was then that he encountered Billy Corgan of Zwan who showed him how to make soup...in this age however...it was called Souper in a Bowel...which is Swahilli for super bowl and of course they needed two teams of people to have enough for two servings...cause you never want to eat Souper in a bowel alone...and Jason....that's the story of Moses. And they all lived happily ever after....amen....
There's Chris for you, always the wisecracking sarcastic bastard. Pieces of the pie. I've given out a lot of pieces over the years; I enjoy it, no reason to stop now. Pie is good.
God, I must look so bi-polar from these enteries. Oh well. I wish I could give everyone what I have had in my life, and I almost feel ashamed that I have as much as I do, I wish I could spread that good fortune to others, but at the end of the day all I can do is bake a pie, and hope someone enjoys it. I was thinking today at work about how we are to a certain extent stuck with the hand we are dealt, but it's all about how you play those cards that determines how you will end up.
Thank you, so much, for giving me a chance to "look closer." It really does mean a lot to me, to develop that trust and use it.
I so made the right decision tonight, and I'm proud of myself for that. Not that the other way would have been the wrong decision, but it wouldn't have been quite as correct. And no, sorry folks, I can't be any more cryptic than that.
I need to get out of these dorms, it's impossible to accomplish anything without becoming a social shut-in, and we all know that's not going to happen.
We didn't make a deal, but screw it, I'm going to give it the old college try anyway. No melodrama for a week. That's a good start, isn't it? At least I can get started on that list. I just need some backup, otherwise I'll lose my motivation like I do with anything else I don't want to do. You'll help me out, won't you? :-)
Back to my music quote... last week in Buddhist Traditions we were talking about the "Four Noble Truths" and the first truth is that suffering is inevitable. I think we all, including myself, need to be reminded of that from time to time. Just don't let that suffering overcome you and prohibit you from functioning normally. I can't expect to not be depressed or down or melodramatic ever again, but I can adjust how I react to such situations. That's what this is all about.
Note to self: Add this entry to the memory book, I'm going to need to refer to this one "when it all goes wrong again." Which reminds me, props to Matt for realizing which blonde rock star I REALLY look like: Art Alexsis. Rock on.
