Gettin' On. Gettin' On.

I mean that two ways. I am forty-six years old today. I could be sad and mournful and complain about the lousy hand life's dealt me, but nope. Just can't do it.

I have great friends, cool friends, and while I could use a job, I feel pretty good about finishing a few short stories and a novel. Nothing publishable, but nevertheless, I DID IT. Yes, I'm shouting.

I've been happier, true, but I'm not really all that sad now.

I hope you're all doing well and are safe and happy.

Ya never git the world ya want, sometimes ya git what ya deserve, and sometimes, ya can't do anything but Candide yer way along, cuz, that's Life.

Silly Spike Lee - Well, Stupid Actually...

Here is a CNN story about Spike Jones Jr.'s reaction to Spike Lee's lawsuit to stop TNN from changing its name to 'Spike TV'.

And below is a cut and paste from IMDb of all the other people in their database who have just as much right - or as little, really - as Lee to be P.O'd.

Harry Potter Is Fun, Not Great Art, But It Was Never Intended To Be, So Pull The Stick Out And Enjoy Yourself. Or Go To He!!. Or Azkaban.

My friend Anneli, (of Tim, Anneli and Alicia, see right) send me this. It's a quiz to help you figure out which Hogwarts house you belong to. It is neither binding nor signicant.

I am






Your a Gryffindor. House of Bravery. You are never
afraid to do anything, as long as you have your
friends. Brave and curagous Gryffindors are, so
be proud of your friends and of you if you are
in Gryffindor.
"You might belong in Gryffindor
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart"


What House in Hogwarts are You In?




It's from Quizilla who do a lot of silly quizzes on different topics. Some of them are fun and some totally useless and pointless, but okay timewasters.

Gloating, Because I Was Right. Was Too.

Salam Pax is real. This is an article from the Guardian Unlimited about him.

Peace.
