♫ Random Monday 5-3-10

*Don't be an ass. Unless you're as cute as the one above.

*I have this increasing tendency to let things happen, instead of making things happen.

*I've been attacked by these ridiculous attacks of appreciation, smiles, and opportunities to be glad that I'm me.

*Why don't soap boxes get slippery? They're equally as dangerous, anyway.

*It feels good to be content with life. And no matter how hard somebody wishes for that to change, the change itself is up to me.

*I got the opportunity to work my ars off outside this weekend, and have massive plans for its sequel in my parents yard this week. Summer, you have no choice but to arrive.

*"Everything can be taken from a man but one thing; the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way."

*I like Random Monday's, because without them, I can't clear my head. They may seem pointless to the reader, but honestly, I don't write them for you. ;)

*Aside from Random Mondays, Monday's also include lunch with my favorite girl friends. Every Monday. I probably couldn't survive without them. They're brilliant, witty, hilarious, and come with cute accessories; like hair flowers and little boys.

*I think these two sayings are closely related:
"Treat others the way you want to be treated" and "garbage in, garbage out".

Which...I just discovered has something to do with programming, but my parents always used it from a moral point of view. "If you watch junk TV, you're going to let it affect you. Sort of like when they tell you that if you cross your eyes too long, they'll get stuck together. ;)

Anyway...if you treat others poorly, they'll probably treat you similarly. If you let pessimistic people stay in your life, you'll find pessimism easier. If you hang around encouraging people, you'll find yourself encouraged...and encouraging.

Lyrics from a song:

I fill my mind with bad things.
So horrible, I feel ashamed they show.
I've taken sin so lightly.
That lately, oh, the darkness is all I know.
The time is now,
Oh, to leave the junk behind.
The moment has arrived,
Where I no longer am blind.
It's garbage in.

Garbage in, Garbage out.
What goes in is found out.
All can see what goes in me.
I pay the price.

*One of my favorite childhood memories? My dad playing donkey basketball. Ever seen it? I think we should bring this tradition back.

--- This video isn't of him, I'm not sure that we got him on tape. All the more reason to do it again.

Yours Truly,

You know, I love your random Mondays too. It took me a while to figure out what was going on, but I have so many random thoughts, that I bet it feels good to get them all out without having to turn each of them into a standalone post!
