Rectum? It damn near killed him.

Thanks slo and Anna, but how would I like it to be credited? Two shy of a dozen formicidae, would do it, I'm thinking:

Thanks Mike, (My personal lament follows yours)

When you purse your lips like that

does your anus pucker up as well?

When you arrogantly deny obvious reality Are worms gnawing holes in your brain?

Do you honestly believe we Wouldn't rather have to deal with you?

Landlords are the greatest advertisement for collective, communal co-habitation.

Thanks again Mike- all credit to you!

Type Casting

The loneliest sound I know falls like hail on a tin roof.

Each stone leaves its dent.

Less permanent: the clattering cacophony of Chicken Little's forecast come true.

Once, my sky had fallen; my voice was erased. Now, all I can do is type.

----------------GALATIANS-6----(----@

My brothers, if someone is detected by sin, you who live by the spirit should gently set him right, each of you trying to avoid falling into temptation himself. 2 Help carry one another's burdens; in that way you will fulfill the law of Christ. 3 If anyone thinks he amounts to something, when in fact he is nothing, he is only deceiving himself. 4 Each man should look to his conduct; if he has reason to boast of anything, it will be because the achievement is his and not another's. 5 Everyone should bear his own responsibility.

6 The man instructed in the word should all he has with his instructor. 7 Make no mistake about it, no one makes a fool of God! A man will reap only what he sows. 8 If he sows in in the field of flesh, he will reap a harvest of corruption; but if his seed-ground is the spirit, he will reap everlasting life. 9 Let us not grow weary of doing good; if we do not relax our efforts, in due time we shall reap our harvest. 10 While we have the opportunity, let us do good to all men --- especially those of the house-hold of faith.

Promise Yourself...

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think of only the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
