Ping Pong Master


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that we aren't a glum lot
that we absolutely insist on enjoying life
that we try not to indulge in cynicism
that we think cheerfulness and laughter make for usefulness
that we have been given the power to help others

for a couple of hours spent being silly at The Galleria with some guys from Lambda

When I first read the title of the video, I read "Ping Pong Monster" -- so I then HAD to click it to see the monster. Hmmm maybe today is not the day to stop drinking coffee. :-)
