Did You Think the Randomness Was Done?

“That is only the start of the Bush cam­paign. He has plen­ty of mon­ey and unlim­it­ed per­son­al cheapness.”

I think I want to see this movie.
I Remem­ber Me
I’m not going to go to Salt Lake City to do it, though.


I don’t know how good this online mag­a­zine for and by teen girls is, but I fig­ured I’d put the link here and let shad­owkatt and mayre­mi give us feed­back from their POV.

True Drops of Love
We must not think that our love has to be extra­or­di­nary. But we do need to love with­out get­ting tired. How does a lamp burn? Through the con­tin­u­ous input of small drops of oil. These drops are the small things of dai­ly life: faith­ful­ness, small words of kind­ness, a thought for oth­ers, our way of being qui­et, of look­ing, of speak­ing, and of act­ing. They are the true drops of love that keep our lives and rela­tion­ships burn­ing like a live­ly flame.
–Moth­er Teresa



Blessed Are The Coffeemakers
By John Isbell

Blessed are those who, when they hear about suffering,
Ask a fol­low-up ques­tion instead of chang­ing the subject:
The smil­ing wall. Blessed are the coffeemakers.
In back room, in office, in court room, in board room:
Blessed are those who make life a lit­tle easier
While oth­ers are talk­ing. Blessed are
Stu­dents who tell a home­less navy vet
Who just wants a lit­tle flirt­ing and affirmation
That they like sailors. Blessed are home­less people
Who col­lect twist-off tops to make a difference.
Blessed are those who donate two hours a week,
Because, be real. Blessed are
Those who write a check when the time comes.
Blessed are those with noth­ing who try to raise their kids right.
Blessed are the poor, for they shall be close to God.
Blessed are the sim­ple­tons and felons,
The crazy lady harangu­ing the pedestrians.
Blessed is the guy with the free flyers.
Blessed are the coffeemakers.
Blessed is your neigh­bor you nev­er talk to.
Blessed are the rich, for they shit as you do.
Blessed are the dead, for their span on earth is ended.
Blessed are sin­ners who repent of their sins,
For that guilt they flee from shall be lifted.
Blessed are the coffeemakers.
