All I can give2003-12-18 17:10:44 ET

"British humourist Spike Milligan once recalled how he was in the throes of a nervous breakdown. Alone in his bed and crying uncontrollably, he noticed his baby daughter walking towards his bed, arms outstretched. In her hand was a glass of water. She wanted to give something. Something to make it alright. This was all she could find." - Peter Paphides

Sometimes all you can give is your shoulder. Sometimes it can be tough when that's the only thing you can give.

I learned that last night.

An' another thing....2003-12-16 19:04:02 ET

What does everyone want this year? C'mon, everybody has at least one thing they really want this year. And I mean something actually attainable, not something like world peace (not that we don't all want that, it's just kinda hard to wrap up and deliver). Think like your a kid again and there's that one thing that you really want this year but haven't had the time or the money to go out and get for yourself.

And please, I don't wanna read anybody saying "there's nothing I really want". C'mon, some sort of book, or a rare LP, or a pair of boots with ridiculous heels...

Why do I ask? Cause sometimes people just don't say what they want. For all the greed that runs amok in society today, there are a handful - and I believe that most of this handful are on SK - that are modest and selfless enough to not ask for anything, in an effort to maintain that modesty and humility.If you don't ask for something, you most certainly won't get it. Few people are gifted with the talent of reading minds, so you gotta say it.

Yeah, I might be talking out of my ass here, and most people have already been asked by their loved ones what they want, but I'm giving everyone else who hasn't the opportunity to now...

(i'm giving you the chance to be unashamedly greedy right now, so run with it!)


Randle P. McMurphy2003-12-16 18:52:08 ET

I gotta hat (we call it a toque) that makes me look a little like R.P. McMurphy.
I kinda talk like him too, when I wear it.
But, unlike everybody else here, I can't go home when I want! Damned Nurse Ratched!

I hope someone knows the guy I'm talking about.
I did get a hat like R.P. McMurphy's, and I like it. That's what I started off talking about here. But I don't have any pictures.... yet...
It's just a toque, and its black.

By the way... whatever happened to Preperations A thru G? Anybody know? I don't.
