Cinco De Mayo or Annual Holocaust Party???

Looking at my office calendar I see that it is Holocaust Rememberance Day (M). Huh. I can't help but think of this addage: " I knew I would look back on my tears and laugh, but I didn't think I would look back on my tears and have a Margarita!"

I guess those Mexicans know how to just let it go. Let bygones be bygones. I mean really, why forget today what can be forgotten tomorrow after the hangover.

So, Feliz Cinco De Mayo everyone. Have a Margarita Rocks, no salt made with Sauza, not that Cuervo stuff.

This kind of sums it up...

I found this one years ago in a high school yearbook, though over the years I have yet to find the author, so I apologize now for not giving credit where its due.

After a while you learn the subtle difference
between holding a hand and sharing a life.
And you learn that love doesn't mean possession
and company doesn't mean security
and loneliness is universal.
And you learn that kisses aren't contracts
and presents aren't promises
and you begin to accept you defeats with your head
up and your eyes open, with the grace of a woman,
not the grief of a child.
And you learn to build your hope on today
as the future has a way of falling apart in mid-flight
because tomorrows ground can be too uncertain for plans;
yet each step taken in a new direction creates a path
toward the promise of a brighter dawn.
And you learn that even sunshine burns
if you get too much.
So plant your own garden and nourish your own soul
instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn that love, true love, always has joys and sorrows,
seems ever present, yet is never quite the same,
becoming more than love and less than love,
so difficult to define.
And you learn that through it all you really can endure,
that you really are strong, that you really have value
and you learn and grow... With every goodbye you learn

Tuesday, bluesday

I always thought I would look back on my tears and laugh, but I never thought I would look back on my laughter and cry.

I used that in my good bye note when I left college after realizing I was not going to finish anyway. I don't know where I got it, but it holds true in most of my life. I have done enough living in this life so far to fill mine as well as yours. Its funny when I think about how long I was doing this or living there, it just seems to add up to much more than my 35 years.

Pedward decided to put a vision in my head this morning in email. Him in a leopard print banana hammock. AAAAAAAAAAGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Thanks for that. Though its not horrible, it is a difficult one to remove from memory.

One of the radio stations locally has changed format for the 5th time in as many years. Now they are claiming to play anything they want because they have the 100,000 watt transmitter and I don't. I got to start my morning with Diana Ross and Nirvana. Yeup, I'm awake now.
