9 Thoughts for Thursday

1. Watching the 2010 Winter Olympics makes me feel like I'm part of something bigger. I have successfully logged ABOUT 40 hours on the Watching the 2010 Winter Olympics Log - this week alone. It's fantastic. And I don't really care about anything else going on in the world.

2. Friends are the stuff of life. I went shopping with the office girls today at lunch. Who needs food? Just kidding. Don't for one minute think I'm hardcore enough to ever skip a meal.

3. Goal setting is very healthy and necessary if one is on the road to being a good person; henceforth, I have set some goals for myself. Goal number one: wear dress clothes to work for a full week. I have no real goals. Don't be fooled. I'm not necessarily on the road to being a good person. I'm merely in the neighborhood. And even then, I just hang out and then go home.

4. Writing without the word "I" is more interesting. My next goal is to start a point with anything other than the word I. Ha! I already accomplished my goal. Maybe I'm a good person after all. (I got carried away with this goal and went back and changed thoughts 1-3 so they did not in fact start with I)

5. ee cummings has written some great poetry. Let point number 6 exemplify this.

a great


Tall as the truth

was who: and
wore his(mountains


like a (now
one sweet sun

in it,now with a


flaming billion kinds
of nameless


7. What will ee cummings say about me in the poem he writes me when I'm gone? More goals: wear my life like a mountain wears the sky. That will make a better poem.

8. It is both hard and easy at the same time to live deliberately. Even more goals: figure out what number 8. might mean for me. I feel like that might help with the living deliberatly thing. Does this mean I have to find that road to being a good person again? Last time I checked, that road wasn't on the latest version of the map I downloaded on my GPS.

9. Snickers rock. The ratio of nougat to chocolate to caramel to nuts couldn't be better. Let the record show that fun size preserves that perfect ratio, where mini size does not.

Until next time!

  1. Truer words were never spoken . . . (I am referring to the snickers part, of course)
