William Shakespeare Toast!!!

Happy New Year's Eve, lets raise our glasses of sparkling grape juice and cheer in 09....

Come thou monarch of the Vine
Plumpy Bucas with pink eyen!
In the vats our cares be drowned
with thy grapes our hairs be crowned!
Cup us till the world go round,
Cup us till the world go round!

Ten Commandments That Were LOST... under my bed...

I. Mondays are to be avoided.

II. Eat a Reuben on Rye when you are about to stress.

III. Do what you love the money will find you!

IV. Friends drink good coffee together.

V. Jumping on beds, with a fan over the bed, not such a good idea.

VI. Cats are evil.... they know when you are allergic to them.

VII. Friends root for Florida State not Florida, Friends root for Colorado not Nebraska.

VIII. Thou shall never leave the towel on the floor or on the bed... (My wife put me up to it!)

IX. Thou shall always finish one project before moving onto the next...

X. Thou shall be thankful to all... then life is a pleasing aroma!

Grobes by Roald Dahl

From Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator
In the quelchy quaggy sogmire,
In the mashy mideous harshland,
At the witchy hour of gloomness,
All the Grobes come oozing home.

You can hear them softly slimeing,
Glissing hissing o'er the slobber,
All those oily boily bodies
Oozing onward in the gloam.

So start to run! Oh, skid and daddle
Through the slubber slush and sossel!
Skip jump hop and try to skaddle!
All the grobes are on the roam.

Holy, holy, holy: What is holy?

holy stadium, filled with black and gold boot stompers?
holy Sabbath and the Sunday New York Times?
holy linen coat on a cool autumn day, and the fallen leaf in my left hand?
holy coffee brewing up conversation?
holy bagel smeared with lox?
holy din shared at a Dave Matthews Concert?
Holy Is God Almighty!

Hebrews 8:5 They serve a copy...

Quote:Requiem for a Dream:

Sara Goldfarb: I'm somebody now, Harry. Everybody likes me. Soon, millions of people will see me and they'll all like me. I'll tell them about you, and your father, how good he was to us. Remember? It's a reason to get up in the morning. It's a reason to lose weight, to fit in the red dress. It's a reason to smile. It makes tomorrow all right. What have I got Harry, hm? Why should I even make the bed, or wash the dishes? I do them, but why should I? I'm alone. Your father's gone, you're gone. I got no one to care for. What have I got, Harry? I'm lonely. I'm old.

She feels like she is somebody because she is able to do more work. She looks ridicules. But how different is it from our need to work to form our own version of traction. Her shadowed reality creates a world in which she feels she has that ability to make perfect. She is like an artist in love with his creation, like Peter Pan playing with his shadow, in her mind she works to be able to love.

To Slice or Not to Slice

In the Eyes of a Customer in line at the Deli Counter:

Thin or thick that is the question,
Whether 'tis more right to be thin sliced or thick slice
The clerks never get it right, how outrageous fortune,
Should I go complain to the manager on duty about the messy slicers, the messy counters
And by saying something get it clean; or shut up and get my slice
The heartache from the fatty greasy ham.
That ham so greasy its bound to give me heartburn; tis perfect.
Devoutly to be wish'd. To slice, or not to slice;
For in that slice what sandwich dreams may come,
When we have gotten our meat and are at home.
Must give us pause- the savory smells
That makes our wait worthwhile.
