My signature is from a song from a band I saw recently in concert and have been raving about a lot lately. And I just think it's a neat lyric--the song is about a guy who lost his girl and wants things to be the way they used to be when they were together and he knows they cant be and basically the lyric says the rest. I think people can identify to it--at least I know I can.

Bring it on

I suppose it's my turn.

My current one is a latin proverb- bascially it sums up how I deal with life. When the winds are favorable, set your sails and ride them with as little reefing as possible. But sometimes the winds aren't favorable or not even there at all- that's when it's time to do something different- break out the oars and paddle out of the doldrums.

But it's also tied to my two loves on the water, sailing and kayaking. When there is wind, I go sailing. When there isn't, it's time to pull out the kayak and go for a row. (Or go under with a swim with the fishies- scuba diving being a recently-aquired love.)

My last one is one of my favorite quotes of all time: "Learn to handle hot things. Always keep your knives sharp. And above all, have a good time." Julia Child was just giving advice on how to be a good cook, but this advice serves well for how to live a good life also. I try to live by it in the kitchen and outside of it.

My custom text: a nickname my father gave me. He's renaissance man. A friend of mine is "the man who can". And I'm renaissance girl- all of us hoping to be able to take on anything that comes our way, which is usually more than the average cookie.

actually, both my custom text and my signature are references to a conversation about calculated insanity.

a group of old friends and i decided that rather than slip slowly into senility we would rather calculate our insanity now while we could.

the deer (in my signature) are getting thumbs and, in the original conversation, will be interestingly posed with shotguns, tied to skateboards and wheeled into traffic in some hunting-heavy backwoods location.

the pants, well, that quote eludes to my plan to rule the world, but i cant broadcast any more about that. after all, im not mad yet

"All the PANTS in Oregon!"

Well, I'm a bit of a C&H fan. These are just two of the hundreds that make me giggle out loud.

It been progressively worse since Watterson stopped writing them. *sigh*.

Great Literary figures

Calvin- one of my cats, named after the aforementioned precocious six year old. My cat gets in nearly as much trouble for being himself as Calvin does.

Sam- my other cat, named after "Sam I Am" in Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss. (Hey, I was only six- my literary knowledge wasn't very extensive)

i really really thought about naming my striped orange tabby hobbes (honest i did), but he just didn't have the personality to be a "hobbes".... i named him 'brother' b/c 'coma' just didn't sound right.....

Same here! Though he ain't striped. I ended up naming him "Keyser" after Keyser Soze. After you see through his charming, innocuous exterior, he truly is the devil in disguise.

Purrrrrr....leap.....YEEEOOOWWWWWWWW.
