And I think the best thing I can do to make my fire burn a little brighter is remind you that you also have a hot coal in there somewhere. So choose to be happy, and it is a choice. Smile when you are cold, naked, and scared. Light the Need Fire of your own story, and share that heat with the rest of us. We sure as hell need it when the toilet bowl freezes...
:: Typical of JJ Abrams. He talks a good game but in the end all the reaction he ever gets out of me is 'meh'. (Man! I liked it!)
:: I’m not in the mood for the Internet.

:: Pleasure has to be a part of life, if you can swing it. I’m trying.
Maybe more next week! But with my usual level of reliability of late, don't bet the house on it.
