Things I Learned In Life Today
Saturday, March 6, 2010

Two cups of green tea on an empty stomach before a four mile run is most definitely NOT MANDATORY. Upper GI malfunctions guaranteed.

Joss paper is representations of real-life money, objects and people burned in traditional Chinese funerals for those who have died. Death? Joss? How appropriate.

Cats don’t know what “no”, “stop”, or “impossible” means. Therefore, they have ninja mind.

People don’t like it when you jump out of trees and scare them. I worked that out myself.

Always read “Rommel’s” book. Revenge is much less likely to backfire. Not that I’m advocating revenge.

Birdsong is always louder if you’re listening for something else.

Seeing the hole is impossible if you are in the hole. This is my koan.
^Possibly the reason why this is an incomplete list.

I may still be learning but...oh, darn. I just lost Thug Aim.

No actually, I enjoy green tea. I generally drink quite a lot of it, sans honey. Running is however, something I may rethink in favor of dancing.

Hey, green tea is good if you dump in enough honey. Course that kind of blows the whole "good for you" thing.

There is no good reason to run, far as I'm concerned. I don't do it. The thought makes me kind of queasy, tell you the truth...

I look at it like this, though, even if it is rough--you're still learning. And that's more than you can say for most folks out there in the verse!

Sicily: or a land war in asia?

Locker blocks: ha. Someone else doesn't remember that objects are generally for their intended use.

Green tea is somewhat bitter. If you made it wrong because you were in a hurry, it's very astringent...and makes for severe queasyness while running. You figure out the rest.

While we're on food, can I interest you in a colorless, odorless food additive from Australia?

Oh, they know what no means. But you have to say it in a way that means business, because if they think you sound tired, they know you won't stop them.

But they do have ninja minds. When nobody's watching, they actually levitate. Crosslegged.

Reading Rommel's book also helps if you're invading Sicily.

People also don't like it if you jump from the top of one locker block over their heads to another.

What's green tea do, anyway? I can't drink tea. Too bland/bitter.

Yeah, why is it that the good lessons are generally the hard, painful or repetitive ones?

I don't own the cats, it was just a meditation on cat-character. But thank you for the suggestion.

Can you imagine a picture of "God Cat" with a water uzi? I IS HAS LAFFING HARD.

Good lessons learned.

"Cats don’t know what 'no', 'stop', or 'impossible' means. Therefore, they have ninja mind."

I can help you with that, at least with the "no" and "stop" parts. It's called the "God Gun"; aka, squirt bottle, water pistol, or heavy artillery Super Soaker (tm).

There is no answer for the "impossible" thing. Besides, there would be far fewer LOLcats posted.
