It's come to this ...

Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.

P.J. O'Rourke

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the infinite number of topics covered by AA's Step 12

that I can enjoy myself today but not at the expense of others

that tomorrow night is Birthday Night @ Lambda Center

that, HP willing, several of us Houston bloggers will meet up with a visiting Colorado blogger on Sunday

that today I will not loan Sheryl Crow a square no matter how much she begs for one

that I have never found it necessary to hold a press conference (yet)

for a really informative session with my therapist - gosh, I hope he's gonna be OK

that I am not sure if I am in a groove or a rut

for the many lifetime contributions of JACK VALENTI, who died yesterday

that today is

Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don't.
-Pete Seeger

NOTE: What has happened to lash/coffee bitch ?

I know the groove or rut...issue personally. A good groove can be groovy! Can't wait to see ya Sunday.

Mary Christine said...

Hey! I get to say - I can't wait to see ya on Sunday too!
And I won't give her a square either!

I feel like I should know what a square is, and why Sheryl Crow would want one.

Sunday it is.

Miss Independent said...

Im with scott, what the heck is up with sheryl crow and the square??? Have a great weekend

dAAve said...

OK Scott and Miss Independent ...
I have added a link now to the Sheryl Crow story. She wants us all to only use 1 square of toilet paper per bathroom visit.

Syd said...

Hmmmm...just one square. Not sure that I want to make a comment on this. I do believe though in good toilet paper and not the waxy, slick kind. Maybe if Sheryl uses industrial strength brand, one square would work.

I totally dig the quote from P.J. O'Rourke, Dave.
Cool stuff.

Today I used many squares and yelled "Take that, Sheryl Crow!"

Trudging said...

I love the idea of Birthday Night! I wish we did it.

Scott said...

not only did Jack Valenti pass on, but so did the guy who wrote the monster mAAsh.. I forget his name...

have a good one!

no clue on the crow/square deal. I try to ignore most celebrities and their causes...I hang round only for the good stuff they became well known for.

Scott W said...

If my asshole opened up and closed like a dog's then I could see using one square, but it doesn't, so SHUT UP SHERYL!

Piglet said...

my god in heaven ONE SQUARE? she is trippin'. my bio-father who is also OCD tried to input that rule in his house while i lived with him.

p.s. no one mentioned lash in the comments. i went to read and it said i needed a password.

lash if you're out there, i hope you are ok.
