A large gaggle of people came over last night for what turned into a rather larger gathering than I’d initially planned.  We ate Eatery sushi from the ‘00s, played some magic from the ‘90s, listened to music from the ‘80s, and we’re all from the ‘70s.

I should point out that Rob was the big winner of the tournament and I was the loser to the loser to the loser to the loser to Rob.  ouch.

The rest of the weekend stretches out ahead of me as formless and empty as summer vacation did when I was 12.  I might not have to work until WEDNESDAY MORNING.  I can’t even conceive of such a thing.

Meanwhile, I’m reading a zillion blog posts from Gnomedex and I don’t feel at all bad about not going.  Though it looks like good fun, I’m going to be having a good weekend here.

Hey, did you know I can jump real high sometimes?

Lastly, I’m trying to find a good dentist in Vancouver.  Monique told me hers was good, but I’m open to recommendations.

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”
