I'd like to take this time to thank.... Alisha and Carol! - 12/31/08 08:27 AM
I always get so damn melancholy at the end of every year. I think of all the lost opportunities. All of the time wasted. All the words said and not said. All the jokes not shared. All the money not made. The relationships not formed. I literally have to force myself to sit down and write a list of all of the new opportunities I took advantage of, all of the time I may have wasted, but enjoyed the heck out of. All the jokes and laughs I've shared with friends and family. Well, the money I made... eh... didn't make much (40 comments)
It seems I am a sucker for a good love story, but I hate romance novels. So, to fulfill by romantic nature, I try to find good books that have wonderful writing, strong characters and men and women who fall in love. The bigger the odds, the better the story. The Map of Love, about an English woman who meets and falls in love with an Egyptian man in the early 1900's, put me in the mood for a similar book. You know the ones (28 comments)

I read Richard Weisser's post, "The Missing gift of holiday acceptance or so I thought at the time" this morning and it put me in a retrospective mood. Looking back at past Christmases had me thinking of friends and loved ones that are no longer with us. My apologies for the length, no worries if you move on. Regardless of the pall my dad could sometimes put over birthdays and holidays, I have many happy memories of Christmases past. As a kid, I worshipped my mom's brothers. Michael the oldest, a school principal, was married 3 times, intensely intelligent and (35 comments)

If you've read my "What are you Reading meme", you know that I was reading the impossibly romantic "The Map of Love". The story goes from the late 1900's, and looks back at a love story between an English woman, who visits Egypt, and an Egyptian man in the early 1900s. It lagged a little in modern day, but the love story between these two impossibly suited people was beautiful. After that, I decided to go for a quick John Sanford romp. I love Lucas Davenport, and even though these books are somewhat predictable, they are a quick and entertaining read. (8 comments)

One of my friends, the lovely Pam Pugmire, a native Idahoan (someday, when I get my passport, I will visit this lovely country- inside joke), called me for the first time today. It seems, while playing around with my profile, I unmarried myself! Well, this was a surprise to Pam, who knew I was down about business, but called just to make sure it wasn't more. We had a great laugh, and I went right (35 comments)
