      Always be yourself unless you can be a unicorn. Then, always be a unicorn.


      “And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling, ‘This is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!’ And each day, it’s up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, ‘No. This is what’s important.’” –Iain Thomas

        Not only have you added an extra 'u' (which is bizarre for you Americans considering the aversion you have to that particular vowel) you've also done away with my second exclamation mark given for added emphasis.
        It's always about "u" isn't it.

                Can anyone seriously challenge Naz or is this a one horse race for the August crown?

                  Burn Notice: or sometimes they jump the shark with a motorcycle and sometimes they jump the shark riding a shark.

                  So I'm watching the wind up of this series the other night. It's been a good run. Sagged toward the middle of the series and it's time, but a good run. Michael Weston is the principle character. He's a former CIA spook who wakes in Miami under a burn notice. That is, he's been black listed for reasons unknown and by persons unknown. The series turns on that premise and his efforts to find the who and why and clear his name.

                  Along the way Micheal enlists a former flame, another former government agent and his mother, both in solving the mystery of his burn and to help a large number of people who, one way or another, need his help on a weekly basis. He finds mostly showy means to render the assistance and has gone out of his way to avoid hurting people when he can.

                  Last season his younger brother was shot with a sniper rifle. This season, the other night, with three episodes left to go Michael, trying to insinuate himself into an evil organization at the behest of the CIA, used a sniper rifle to kill a not so bad fellow who'd been asking too many questions. Right. And the fellow was coming to help save Michael, or so he believed.

                  Evil Kneivel couldn't clear this episode or save the series...way to go, whoever wrote the episode, for out ruining whoever wrote the last episode of Saving Grace or suggested the premise for Seinfeld's finale... I couldn't care less how it all ends.

                  Next Monday: ABC's fall line up and why you should or shouldn't be excited by it.
                  You aren't what you eat, but you're always what you swallow.

                          Maybe it's the start of the school year or the Summer season drawing to a close, but it seems like just yesterday we were bringing Jack home from the hospital. And there he was today, driving our car.

                            Son of a biscuit eater, I did it again...I can't tell you how embarrassing this is getting...and it did take a few minutes to find posts of a similar quality, there not being that many posters who aren't native speakers, but I managed. I guess I was so tired from the search I just wasn't paying as much attention as I should have.

                            Well, I'll do better tomorrow. In the meantime I can't tell you how sorry I am about all of this...I really can't.

                            More cats sounds better.

                            Similarly, I've always thought CSN&Y could have made "Our House" a lot better if they'd added way more cats in the yard.
                            I always wondered who Two Cat was. I mean, obviously Native American but then he doesn't really seem to factor in the narrative.

                            Of course. What could make more sense than to actively strive to not be true to the God you worship.

                            It is obvious.

                            Did you forget Love is the universal law of Life itself? Love fulfills. Love envalues. Love empowers. Love heals. Love restores. Love edifies. Anything less is 'sin' (falling short). Are you fulfilling the law?
                            Love discerns, judges and protects too, else I'd let my two year old play with the wolf that comes out from the forest's edge because he called it doggy and it seemed to smile.

                            Because you didn't know. You believed. I know my name. Tomorrow that name will still be mine. How I feel about it might change though.

                            I try not to use the world "believe" anymore. I have worked very hard to remove it from my vocabulary when dealing with things like this. Belief is a tricky thing. Either you know something, or you are striving to learn.
                            I think that's a mistake. Believe is precisely the best word to describe both your prior and current position in relation to what may or may not be the truth of the matter.

                            I often ask myself the same question. Why did I believe? It could because I wanted to believe it. It could be that at the time I felt it. It could be any number of different things. All that I know now, is that I don't believe it. Not a single word of it.
                            Okay, but I think that's peculiar and I don't know that I've ever met anyone who couldn't tell me why they believed the central truth of their life at a time was X.

                            ...Why the concern about my soul? Why go through the trouble?
