Five good things.

Snagging this from Nashata, who nailed it from assorted other meme-spreaders.


Five Good Things About Today

1. Finished short-story project with a week to spare.

2. Confirmed the Gourd carving for the coming weekend with my Hippie pals, and that Robb could come with. More the merrier!

3. Decided on a different Halloween costume. Chuckles, the Cannibal clown. Standard clown suit with vampire fangs, and a limb of some sort to gnaw on, and some lovely blood to match the red foam nose.

4. Kellie might've had her baby!!!

5. Worked out a more economic travel plan for the near future, figure to save at least 70% of expenses.

Doc!

quoted from Oct 16th at ign.filmforce.com

The Terminator himself, "Ahnuld," recently dished the latest 411 in a Los Angeles Times interview. Schwarzenegger says that he's currently shooting an action-thriller in Mexico called Collateral Damage, in which he plays a federal officer seeking revenge upon terrorists who murdered his family. Arnie went on to confirm that he will begin work in March on Terminator 3, in which he will battle a female android to the death. After that, he's hoping to bring the comic-book hero "Doc Savage" to the big screen. He compares the script by Frank Darabont (one of several writers on the project) to Steven Spielberg's Raiders of the Lost Ark.


Groovy! Make that #6!

This is very nice. Read to the very last sentence.

Make sure you read all the way down to the last sentence. There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His Father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back
of the fence. The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold
his temper than to drive those nails into the fence....

Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper. The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone. The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said, "You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man and take it out. It won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound is still there. A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one. Friends are very rare jewels, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you succeed. They lend an ear, they share words of praise and they always want to open their hearts to us.

"It's National Friendship Week. Show your friends how much you care. Send this to everyone you consider a FRIEND, even if it means sending it back to the person who sent it to you. If it comes back to you, then you'll know you have a circle of friends.

HAPPY FRIENDSHIP WEEK TO YOU!!
YOU ARE MY FRIEND AND I AM HONORED!!
Now send this to every friend you have!! And to your family.

Please forgive me if I have ever left a hole in you.
