My Fortune

It seems the stars aligned today and pushed a cookie with a fortune and a magazine with an interesting horoscope on me today. Oh, wait...that was tummy listening to my craving for Chinese food. Same thing. Blah. Blah.

What was my fortune from my cookie today? "An admirer is too shy to greet you."...

Yeah. With a big fat right.

Maybe if we all cross our fingers and close our eyes and imagine pigs flying...Ok. Sorry. Now I am being a wee bit pessimistic. Maybe the fortune is really talking about me? Perhaps. I am the shy one who admires another and could never in a million finger crossings get the courage to "greet" my crush. Oh, woe is me. Where's the chocolate?

Moving on. So, when I was picking up my Chinese food.. for one.. to take home and gorge while watching "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days"...and wondering why I do things like this to myself...I picked up the local "Gazette" because I enjoy reading a liberal perspective in Republican saturated Oklahoma. Ok. Now I am beginning to digress a little. This is a whole can of politics I don't want to ever get into with anyone I care about, so I will stop with my one snide remark and move on to my point.

Back to my weekly local reader. The Gazette has a weekly horoscope that is normally either/or/a combination of fun, thought provoking, quirky, random...and nothing like the typical horoscope one can find in Teen Magazine or Cosmo...which are fun too. I got a good chuckle out of my weekly horoscope from The Gazette and thanked my lost and confused stars that this week is just about over. Here is what it said:

When he's in his prime, a male panda performs an average of eight handstands a day. There's no apparent evolutionary purpose in this stunt. He does it because it feels good. I suggest you make him your role model in the coming week, Leo. Identify three activities you can do not because they're "good for you" or because they'll advance some goal you're pursuing, but simply for the sheer fun of it. If you can't think of any play-time endeavors that fit this description, do the meditation and research necessary to find some. Whatever deeds you ultimately settle on, do them at least eight times a day. (P.S. Do you know how to do cartwheels?)

First off, I do know how to do a cartwheel, but I don't think it would be very pretty or fun. So that's not going to one of my three things I need to do EIGHT times a day. No way, Mr. Horoscope. Second, does this mean I should go buy the movie "Kung-Fu Panda"??? Because I have been wanting to see it and I have heard it is really funny.

Accepting the fact that I have never been capable of doing a proper handstand; not that I haven't tried numerous times in my life... I have been trying to come up with three "activities" that A) are NOT good for me and B)I like to do for the sheer fun of it. C) and can perform eight times a day. Which should be easy and if it is not, I will come up with something out of the sheer determination that I refuse to do any mediation or research necessary to find something. So, activities? What activity? I am scanning my brain. What could I do eight times a day for the sheer fun of it that is not good for me?

1) Drink wine.
2) Eat chocolate.
3) Blow a puff of air in my dog's face and watch her try to bite the air.

Hahahaha. Done. That was fun. Eight more times to go. Your turn!

Keep on Keepin on.
