So, I have been relatively happy over the last four or five or ten months - and haven't had much to say. So I have been absent. An unexcused absence. It's going on my permanent record.

But, here I am again. you knew I'd resurface. I'm going to leave myself a post-it to remind myself to come back at least once a week and harass you. I like Post-Its. They remind of bad love. They stick like crazy and then when it's over - poof - you never knew they were there. Don't leave a mark.

I'm curious about several aspects of my world again and thought I'd ask aloud:

1. Why isn't it treason for the Secret Service to allow gate crashers at a White House dinner?

2. What will happen when Disney buys everything? There will be no mothers in any film - and everything will leave that saccharine after taste...

3. Where are the honest people hiding?

4. Can we all live in a state of gratitude for 42 days? Can we truly be thankful for all and any that the world has to offer? It would be amazing if you could thank God for the lessons and the beauty in complete and utter crapola?

5. Why isn't Jack Black in more movies? I love him and his chubbiness.

6. Did anyone miss me? do I have relevance outside my house? If a tree sings a bad show tune in the shower will anyone think it has talent?

7. Did you miss me?

and now for a picture

Hi Candi, and I hope you had a splendid Thanksgiving. Regarding a few of your questions...

-The honest folks are out there all right, but they tend to do good things quietly, so they don't get the notice they deserve. Too bad a lot of 'celebrities' who demand oodles of publicity when they do one good deed don't have that kind of humility.

-I think it would great if we can live in gratitude beyond those 42 days. If people can get past the instant gratification fixes that the media foists upon them, they'll see that there are many small pieces of beauty everywhere out there that make life worth living. You can't buy that at a Black Friday sale.

-Jack Black should definitely be in more movies and make a lot more music! I'm ready to toss at least one Tenacious D CD at my son this Christmas.

-You have talent and heart, which makes you 150% relevant anywhere you are, and yes, you have been missed.

Good blogging as always you do and here are my thoughts.
I am a person who believes on one's right to pursue publicity and fame, at the same time,still,that person should be on the place of a needy one in the community. I agree with you and also am thankful for the basic things many lack,sadly.
