What I Told My Dad Today...

I sent my dad a card with this quote. It really describes him:

To laugh often and much: To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you lived. This is to have succeeded. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Happy Father's Day to all the good dads reading!!

92% Self-Esteemed

Maybe it's higher than I thought or this blog shows:

You Have Low Self Esteem 8% of the Time

Which can be translated to mean, you have high self-esteem and a healthy sense of self worth.
You believe in yourself, and you know how to be the real you. You love yourself, imperfections and all.

Most Boring Blog... Ever, No, I Mean It

I'm not trying to enter their contest. (But if I win then I of course was). I was shocked to try and parse this phrase: furniture store blog. It's true. Everyone is blogging these days. Via San Diego Blog.

Fear and Loathing in La Jolla

This is for all of my homeboys with plumbing/lack of water ills. KC & D who had upstairs neighbors flood their places. KB who had sewage spill onto his carpet and had to pay $800 for someone to come dry it out (your landlord is evil!). M who's water keeps getting shut off. My own plumbing issues. Don't ever try to convert a cardboard box into a bucket. Mildew is the enemy.

This is for all my pals with love ills. I won't even mention your initials. You know who you are.

And for all people filled with fear and loathing, some Sinatra:

That's life, that's what all the people say.
You're riding high in April,
Shot down in May
But I know I'm gonna change that tune,
When I'm back on top, back on top in June.

Ignore that the song ends this way:

But if there's nothing shakin' come this here july
I'm gonna roll myself up in a big ball and die
