Revisiting an Old Favorite

In getting back to what was once a standard feature of the old myspace blog days, I've decided to blog about fortunes...not the cash money variety, though. The kind that come out of cookies and feed us inane "wisdom" by which we are supposed to live. Don't thank me. Thank Panda Express.

"A note full of cheer is coming from a loved one." Well, I am having lunch with my dad tomorrow...the purpose of which is so I can sign a criminal subpoena that states I am on call to appear at the Van Nuys location of the Superior Court of the Los Angeles Judicial District on Cinco de Mayo (Can you say fiesta?!), so I guess somewhere there is accuracy there. [Insert your own punchline.]

"A much needed vacation will bring a great deal of enjoyment." I don't think anyone will debate that should happen. I just don't think anyone believes that it will. Ever. (Even on the last multi-day vacation I had, which was the cross country roadie with Toph D last August, I took a conference call...from Iowa. This story is 100% true, and I am sure my brother will corroborate it with a comment. Sorry, again, about all the good songs I made you miss because we had to mute the XM.)

"You will always have good luck in your personal affairs." Uh...false.

"An admirer is too shy to greet you." I struggle with this one, as I find it hard to believe anyone could admire anyone else without interacting with said individual. makes no sense. Plus, I'm about as threatening as a teddy bear. If you're too shy to talk to me, that is going to be a sticking point regardless, so, this is probably a wash anyway.

"Someone is speaking well of you." Good for me. Unfortunately, someone (and probably multiple someones) is (are) also off talking smack.

"You are admired for your adventurous ways." This must be the admirer who is too shy to greet me and thus, doesn't realize that I'm really not that adventurous.

"Past inspirations and experiences will be helpful in your job." This one is actually very true...except that the driving factor is fear. I have a fear that I will be plunged back into the black hole if despair that was my first job. I loved coaching (still do), and I wouldn't trade that experience for the world, but the only purpose my first job served was to drive into my head (brutally at times) that I am not cut out to work in education. I'm glad people do. God bless them. I am not one of these people.

"Beautiful things await you." Proooooooooove iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit.

"People find it difficult to resist your persuasive manner." I can think of at least one person who has no such difficulty.

This link is unrelated to my persuasive manner, but please hit it anyway. I don't care if you watch it, but it will be help with a school project. Thanks! [doooooo iiiiiiiiiiiit]


  1. Greatest road trip of your life, dooooode. You should also know that at this point I really need only to see the song that's playing on the XM and it's instantly playing in my head. Gotta do something to help you through the "beautiful" corn fields of Iowa!

  2. P.S. All should click the link. Doooooo iiiiiiiit!!

  3. knew i could count on you for the smack talking...thanks
