Quotes from the World for Tuesday 02/12/MMXIII

Looking foolish does the spirit good. The need not to look foolish is one of youth’s many burdens; as we get older we are exempted from more and more, and float upward in our heedlessness, singing Gratia Dei sum quod sum.

John Updike
John Updike (b. 1932), U.S. author, critic. Self-Consciousness: Memoirs, ch. 6 (1989).

Gratia Dei sum quod sum (“Thanks be to God that I am what I am”)Mone of the epigraphs of Updike’s volume of memoirs—is inscribed on the tomb of Bishop West of Ely in Ely Cathedral, England.

I’m Giving

Good Morning & Happy Tuesday,

I’m giving yes’s out today.

Today is Tuesday 02/12/V3.3 & it is going to be make something simple, difficult.

Today I made my bed, which I’ve done for the last 105 days IN A ROW! I decided to cover it in little glass beads.

My supervisor texted me & asked me if I could work Friday (the 22nd) from 08.30 to 13.00ish. YES! That reminds me too set my alarm for tomorrow at 06.58. I have to work at both jobs tomorrow.

If you want a YES from me today is the day to ask, I’m in that kinda mood. It can’t cost me any money though, that is the only stipulation. I can’t necessarily do it today either. MY next day off is Saturday. I’m working a single on Friday, so there.

The word of the day is lollapalooza which is an extraordinary or unusual thing, person, or event; an exceptional example or instance.

I’ve opened up my timeline on ‘that other social’ network until Monday 02/11/V3.3. Let’s see if people can maintain the level of respect that I can accept. Otherwise it’ll go back on lockdown before you can say how many blog entries of mine you have red.

What are you looking forward to today?

Personally I’m looking forward to breakfast, I haven’t decided if I’m having pancakes or waffles. I had waffles last time, but what we’ve done in the past shouldn’t effect what we’ve done now. LIVE, eat, & Learn!!!

I think that is it for now, I’m under CCC words. I see no reason to go over.
