Run Forrest, Run!
I was playing my favorite online game, Poppit, at Pogo games and I started reading the conversation going on in the sidebar chat. It made me laugh! These people are crazy. Totally crazy. There was one gal (I'm assuming it was a gal...) on there diagnosing another gal with bi-polar. Because she bought her PHD in psychiatry from eBay. Then they started talking about kids and the "psychiatrist" said something to the effect of "Kids come in all kinds of packages. You never know what you're gonna get". Deep, don't you think? For some reason it made me think of chocolate... and how life is like a box of those chocolates....I wanted to butt into the conversation and say "Hey Forrest, that's a great insight! So, do you like the kids that are a little nutty? Or do you prefer the ones that are more fruity? Or maybe the flaky ones are better?" Do you think I could pretend to be a doctor and use movie lines to give out advice? Let's try it out here... I don't have my eBay degree yet, but I've used the "buy it now" option, so it should be here soon. Here is your advice for the day courtesy of The Fellowship of the Rings: "Never trust and Elf!" There you have it. Take it and enrich your lives.

Actually, I find that advice deep and extremely fitting to my situation in life. Thank you, doctor. You'll never know how much that meant to me. (sniff)

Very funny! You so should have butted in that conversation!

I know I'm probably very late in this- but I just had to say I love the new layout! Very beautiful!

kimberly - glad you were amused :)

wynne - I knew that tis piece of advice would affect you the most... seeing as how you are a Hobbit.

carrot - that's why the internet is so awesome! You can be whatever you want to be... as long as you've got a PayPal account ;)

mcewen - glad you like the countdown! The kids are starting to count down too... we're all ready for school to start.

slyn - hey! I wanted to butt in. I almost did. I should have... next time I will :)
Glad you like the look. I'm gonna play with it again in a few weeks. Try to change it once a month... just to keep everyone on their toes!
