... and now, for something





todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I woke up sober again this morning; it's getting to be a habit

that Saturday night at Lambda promises to be an enjoyable birthday night; we have about 40 people celebrating sober anniversaries

for my health

that I'm no longer in school, but I'll always be a student

for the life of Ted Kennedy. His dedication to service is an example I need to remember, regardless of what I may have thought of his politics.

The only difference between stumbling blocks and steppingstones is the way in which we use them.

Airplane is my favorite movie of all time! I still laugh like crazy at the part where the stewardess tells them there is no more coffee, and everyone jumps up and starts screaming.

This HABIT of waking up sober every morning is getting to be habitually habit-forming.


I was one of those people screaming- No COFFEE?!

40 birthdays to be celebrated!! Sounds like you all need to bring sleeping bags and plan a sleep over.

I'm glad that you mentioned Ted Kennedy. He cleared up a life of trouble to be a life of serving others. Quite an inspiration.
