I have learned two very important things in life.

I don't recall the first one, but the second one is to write everything down.

I have a friend who is an insomniac, an agnostic, and is dyslexic.

Sometimes she tells me about nights when she lays awake and wonders if there really is a Dog.

Laughed at the dog fail. Years ago I took my black lab pup to obedience school. This puppy was high strung, all of her life. Quite a few lessons I was embarrassed because of how disruptive she was. At the end of the class as the instructor was handing out certificates as she approached me and handed mine to me she whispered to me "I'll give you a free lesson if you want". I looked at the blank piece of paper and asked her if she thought it would make any difference. She looked at me sadly and said "nope." I thanked her and ran after my lab. True story.

I've just upgraded to Directv HD.

I'm impressed.

The phrase 'No satellite signal' has never been so colorful and clear.

A lapsed Catholic, a 1000 year old shaman and a homicidal Budhist Monk walk into a bar. The barman says, "Sorry, we only serve spirits here".
