surprise surprise

i'm opening, actually i'm at the beginning of an opening binge

i tried to be productive, after my day finally started yesterday, caribou led me to the bookstore and i wonder around aimlessly and soaked in knowledge, it is one of my favorite things to do. it felt good. i took a lot of notes and wrote down a number of isbns. good times.

came home and made some really good tofu.

yesterday was pleasant.

what will today bring?

3 out of 4 are consistent

I'm definitely an ENF.... its the J and P that I go back and forth with:

ENFJ - "Persuader". Outstanding leader of groups. Can be aggressive at helping others to be the best that they can be. 2.5% of total population.
Free Myers-Briggs Word Choice Test
personality tests by

ENFP - "Journalist". Uncanny sense of the motivations of others. Life is an exciting drama. 8.1% of total population.
Free Myers-Briggs Word Choice Test
personality tests by

For the longest time, I've been an enfj, but i think over time and the number of times i've taken different tests, maybe i really am an enfp??

the truth is i'm probably somewhere in the middle....and i'm content with that.... its really just about understanding yourself and others.

things that make you go ''hmmmmm'' !!!!!

the hours of a midsummer's event

i left for work wednesday morning around 6:30 and returned home friday morning at 12:15.... crazniess!

sushi rock lead to annebelle's which lead to nicole's...
a considerably successful adventure into sushi rock, only one marble slab and just enough for one sitting..

randomness of course

f4-1, dirty d, two..... pittsburgh flyers: for a laugh..... adventures upstairs and naps in the car, a combined effort for a fabulous start to marisa's birthday.

horrific traffic everywhere

M Bistro and pretentious westlake, patios are always great

Off to crocker park to see Charlie, with no expectations, it was great. CCF ended the night.

(no pictures to document events..)

today i'd like to attack my list, a sense of accomplishment is necessary...

out of the woodwork

oh the joys of pretentious akron
a dose of fuel
stumbling upon a reality check
5lbs of dehydration

its just like chess
nothing a *new* funky pixie cut can't handle!

love for the *media*

why would you want to subject yourself ?

i flip on the TV news, or pick up a newspaper and start reading. what a perplexing tangle of different forces at play in the world. the mind and the heart are instantly bombarded with suffering in a multiplicity of forms. how are we, who are not experts in international affairs or politics or economics or social policy or criminal justice, to grasp the enormity and the minutiae of what is actually going on? it feels like a huge cascading torrent, this day's recounting of what happened, who said what, who did what, who knew what when and who didn't, who went where, who responded to what and how they responded. thre was such a recounting yesterday. there will be another one tomorrow. and none of it, mind you, is exactly what happened. they are stories about what happened, constrained by all sorts of parameters, some of which we know, some of which we may have no inkling of, much of it spun one way or another by pandits and by political protagonists aiming to achieve or prevent one effect of another.

nevertheless, we can glean a lot by taking it in with more than a grain of salt. in any case, whether we know it or not, we are continually building our own images and opinions of the world and what is going on out of this stream of partial information to which we can easily become addicted, even as we are perhaps becoming exasperated by particular emergences, the particulars depending, of course, on who you are and what you care about or are evne open to hearing or cannot escape admitting. our eyes flitting over the newspaper fill the mind with random details as much as with coherent stories or analysis, out of which grow our own thoughts, feelings, and opinions, which proliferate endlessly. watching the news on tv or listening to it on the radio does much the same. after a while, however we take it in, it becomes a steady diet, and a poor one. for most of the news is a recounting of dukkha (suffering) in its infinite forms. there is precise little to lift the spirits.....
-jk zinn

self imposed torture, even filtering through the 'spins', the suffering, and the hot 'topics'..... to feel informed? does that even exisit anymore?

at least i'm not alone, others share my 'understanding' or lack there of, due to the subtle incompetence of those in positions to inform....

goodbye hulla!!!!!!!

it may be the last time i get to run around all night and say 'happy hulla!' like it's a holiday, to celebrate the day for what it is and for the people that it's joined together, but as they say...
it just so happened the last hulla ever was on my birthday. what a great reason to frolic up to toronto, a lovely city. carpe diem, who knows when we'll ever be in toronto again? yes, i know, we'll find a reason! from 3 o'clock on, i kept wondering if anyone would play our song? i wasn't sure if i could fathom that the song that we had grown so fond of many many moons ago, hadn't affected others along the way? these thoughts developed into the best moment of the night, THE LAST SONG! of course. there are very few moments in life, when time freezes and you think 'wow, i'm going to remember being in this very moment for the rest of my life'...... my birthday turned out to be very special afterall, with no one's control, just fate.
Ahha smiles!! Uber cute and festive!
Quick take a picture of Brian taking a picture of you, it's never been done before!
Nicole darling, saying 'Oh yah....look at me go!"

over and out.
