Are you kidding me?

I really enjoy the Notes from the Universe and so on occasion I have posted a note if I was especially moved by it or encouraged. Apparently I'm supposed to let all of you know that the Notes from the Universe come from One would think that it would be fairly easy for you to google (at "Notes from the Universe" and find them yourself if you were interested.

I guess I won't be copying any more of their notes to share here. If they actually wanted the word to get out they wouldn't act like jerks when people post their stuff (and clearly label it Notes from the Universe). To add insult to injury they didn't even spell my damn name right when they posted their comment (that I rejected. pfft.).

Instead of the Notes being a nice, positive, uplifting thing, I now feel like they're a marketing ploy that I don't want to be a part of anymore. Sad.

A gentle nudge ;-)

I love my Notes from the Universe :D

Remember you once told me, Gail, that if ever all of the circumstances in your life were aligned just so, your soon-to-be friends were in all the right places at all the right times, and the financial markets, social climate, and global energies had all reached optimal points... you'd want to be gently nudged as a subtle sign that it was time to start doing new things, saying new things, and visualizing so that you might catch these gargantuan waves of change and surf to dazzling new heights?


Hang ten,
The Universe

PS: Oh, Gail, you also wanted me to remind you something about a fulling, high-paying job and Cadbury Fruit and Nut Bars... go figure.

Tuesday Love List ~ my friends

I thought I'd do a list of people I love and why... I'm going to do ten people on this list, and if you don't show up on this list, maybe you'll be on the next one.

1. Amanda: How can I not love this crazy kid of mine. She makes me crazy and proud all at the same time. I guess that's the nature of teenagers. It's odd having her so far away but I know she's safe and healthy and happy.

2. Brian: Ahhh yes, the boyfriend. Hopefully soon the future husband and then husband and then father of my children. I think I love him most because he makes me laugh. Every day. Even on days when he's made me cry.

3. Tracy: She's my bff here in Santa Barbara. My "person". I adore her laid back and generous nature. She's always go with flow girl and I love that. Plus she's a huge geek who loves the same shows I do.

4. Karen: I don't get to talk to Karen often but every now and then I'll read her blog or she'll comment on mine and it's like we never stopped working together. She's steady... I love that.

5. Carmen: My sister is a pain in the neck but I love her. All the time. No matter what. And she loves me all the time no matter what. What more could you ask from a sister?

6. Sassy: I talk to her almost everyday online. She is a huge part of my everyday life. I don't know what I would do without her to snark with!

7. Stephie: Also one of my most favorite OL and RL friends. She keeps me sane. Plus she's as funny as they come!

8: Bobby: My brother is an outstanding human being. I've never known anyone more loving or giving. I'm proud to be his sister.

9: My mom: What a woman. She gave me life and a lot of attitude. Both have served me well ;) Thanks mom.

10: Alicia: I miss my Alicia. Working with her for 2 years was awesome and even though we don't see each other every day anymore, I'm glad she still calls me to gossip when she has good news.

Who do you love? Why? You know what? It doesn't matter. Just make sure you show them or tell them that you do in fact, love them very much. Warts and all.
