that I went to an Al-Anon meeting and took a desire chip

for an extrememly busy weekend

if Dolly Parton married the Dalai Lama, would she then be Dolly Lama?

Anger or hatred is like a fisherman's hook. It is very important for us to ensure that we are not caught by it.

that's so awesome that you went to Al-anon and picked up a desire chip. I figured being surrounded by alkies (even in recovery) I'm probably due to go to a few. Actually, I've been to a handful, but never picked up the desire chip. That's SO BRAVE of you!

If Dolly married the Dali Lama she would be a bigamist.

As a result of my relationship with my wife (girlfriend at the time), I felt it necessary to hit some Al-Anon about 6 years ago... I am glad I did, it really opened my eyes up to a different perspective.

Congrats on going to Al-Anon. I believe Al-Anon saved my life when I was married to Mr. Pilot. I probably need to go back.

Dolly ruined Dali's quote.

Then again, if she had married Salvador Dali she would be Dolly Dali.

congrats on picking up the chip - Al Anon is great, in my opinion. And I'll say GO ASTROS. I would trade all my baseball cards as a kid for the astros ones because they had the rainbow on their uniforms and I thought that was pretty. LOL
