The Killers - Bones
Ok, so i am obsessed with Brandon Flowers! He's hot and he is singing about touching my bones!! What more can a girl ask for on Halloween Eve!
I am not going to expend too much energy tonight. I spent today running and playing on the internet! Yep, it's what i do every day! Please note the irony in my words. All of my readers will pick up on it. Except for perhaps 1 or 2 of you. If you don't know what the word irony even means, here let me help you!
Irony is a literary or rhetorical device, in which there is an incongruity or discordance between what one says or does, and what one means or what is generally understood.
My goodness, do you get it? Here, let me go further...
Sarcasm - Understatement, mocking overstatement, or heavy-handed irony (stating the flat opposite of the truth) where both parties are aware of the difference between what's said and what's actually happening.
That one right there is irony for dummies! You get my point though.
I read an amazing post today by my friend Anthony over at raw model. I swear, this guy always writes the things that i am thinking.
Here's a story from The Power of Now that Anthony shared here: we like it raw. And no, we like it raw is most definitely not a porn site.
The Beggar and His Treasure
A beggar had been sitting by the side of the road for thirty years. One day a stranger walked by.
"Spare some change?" mumbled the beggar.
"I have nothing to give you," said the stranger. Then he asked: "What's that you're sitting on?"
"Nothing," replied the beggar. "Just an old box. I've been sitting on it for as long as I can remember.
"Ever look inside?," asked the stranger.
"No," said the beggar. "What's the point, there's nothing in there."
"Have a look inside," insisted the stranger. The beggar, reluctantly, managed to pry open the lid. With astonishment, disbelief, and elation, he saw that the box was filled with gold.
I am that stranger who has nothing to give you and who is telling you to look inside. Not inside any box, as in the parable, but somewhere even closer: inside yourself.
Look inside folks. Please. Everybody here has so much potential for good and growth and love. It's all inside just waiting to burst forth. If you do not look, you will not find.
I fell today while running. It happened in a split second as these things often do. I was distracted. My knee took the brunt of it. It is still painful now after a lot of icing. Guess i had a bit of two left feet syndrome huh?
So, tomorrow is the day. The day. Halloween 2008. I am all about the pumpkin this year. I am talking pumpkin icecream, pumpkin bread and amazing pumpkin butter that i picked up in Soho yesterday. Man that stuff is so good, so intoxicating with all the different autumn spices in it. It's great stuff. Pick some up and slather it on your bagel. Almost, but not quite better than sex!
So, i was wondering what everybody will be for this Halloween? Or do you even dress up at all?
Most importantly, be safe. Check all candy before giving it to the kids. Hey, i hate to be that way, i hate to sound cynical but this is the world we live in.
Be slow in choosing a friend, but slower in changing him.
Fall seven times and stand up eight.
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.
Countdown to Halloween - 1 day
