"Out beyond ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing there is a field. I'll meet you there." ----- Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Balkhi-Rumi, 13th century Sufi poet.

"Have faith that people do their best. I don't know anyone who would eat with pigs out of a trough in a muddy barnyard if he knew that a well-prepared meal was on the table in a clean house - do you?" Greg Baer

"The Secret in healing Narcissism is not to heal it at all, but to listen to it. Narcissism is a signal that the soul is not being loved sufficiently. The greater the Narcissism, the less love being given." ~ Thomas Moore, 'Care of the Soul'.

My wife and I are going away for one week of just the two of us together, no children, no business, no nothing. It might be the best shot at healing we've had in a long time. :loveya:

My hamster Poppy died. We found it lying peacefully in the cage this evening. I cried for her and for myself.

Matt, I'm curious as to why the hamster dying is a positive? :sad: moving along, I've got a crisis brewing on the home front so I'm taking advantage of all opportunities to stop and smell the roses. This morning I had time to see with my ducks and just watch them poke around the yard looking for food. Kind of a cool way to start another insane day.

I'm sorry, it's not. I've just gotten used to reporting meaningful daily events here, and I must have forgotten about the positive part yesterday. We are getting two new hamsters soon though, so that will make things somewhat better.

Take care,

Matt

My ex sent me an email regarding our children and used the word "please". Things are looking up!

Have a great weekend!

Sometimes I just can't help being talented :wink:

Me and my friend won our tennis match in the men's doubles draw of our local club against two experienced older players. We were down 7-5, 3-0, and then one of the older guys started making jokes and talking trash as if it were already over. Well, that fool got what he deserved, because we came back to win 5-7, 6-3, 11-9. DAMN was he pissed! He barely shook our hands and then stormed out of the club after the match. I was like yeahhhh, old people, you just can't handle the heat of me and Gary.... I was serving up a storm...

Alright I better stop before I begin to look really arrogant :wink:

One sure fired bet is for the Eagles to lose in the NFC Champsionship game. After three years of this we can almost set our watches by it. Sorry if its too early for football wars.


Oh, contrare my friend. In fact, I have been waiting all week to announce that according to the sports book in Vegas, the favorite to win the 2005 Superbowl are none other than the mighty Eagles, with 7-2 odds. Yes indeed. My money is on the Eagles. :gloat: :gloat:

In other news, it turns out Don Rickles is still alive. Also Tim Conway and Harvey Korman. They've been in Vegas all this time. Go figure. :evillaugh:

BTW, I'll have you know that I was a good girl in Vegas, more or less, at least until my boyfriend arrived on Wednesday. Even though I was getting hit on right and left by drunken young boys, for some reason. It was flattering for about 15 seconds but then it started to get on on my nerves. I was afraid to travel too far from the hotel when I was by myself because they were obnoxious. Aside from that, I'm ready to move to Vegas. :cookiemonster:

Children should I start a ticker to the first weekend of the NFL season? I should note that many people have lost their fortunes by paying too much attention to the what the sports books said. Do you care to guess how the books rated Carolina last year or the likelihood of a Calgary, Tampa Bay final in the NHL. Stay away from the books as its a forgone conclusion the Broncos will win the world, while the Eagles continue whatever it is they do. :evil:

I'm back after a rather unexpected weekend with my new Shaman in Montana.. It was great and it brought up many things I want to talk about in the near future. Right now I'm having a great time just being and trying to find exactly what is my true self. :smile:

I accepted a chance to go on a blind date last night. Its way too early to say anything for certain. The known facts are we both hate cleaning and love pizza. A match made in heaven.
