Things I like today-

Sen. Ted Kennedy speaking out in support for Net Neutrality

These fun and humorous videos -

We all know what the internet is really for. Avenue Q made a song about it, and the nice monsters from World of Warcraft made a video for the song. Listen and be amused. The Internet Is For Porn

Everyone's favorite furniture store is of course The Presidents

These quotes -

"Be curious always, for knowledge will not acquire you; you must acquire it." --Sudie Back

"To be happy, you need something or someone to love, something to keep you busy and something to look forward to." Anon/ Modern proverb

"For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one. Happiness is a journey, not a destination..." - Souza

"The things we know best are the things we haven't been taught." - Marquis de Vauvenargues

"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around."- Leo Buscaglia

"Mindfulness is not just a word or a discourse by the Buddha, but a meaningful state of mind. It means we have to be here now, in this very moment, and we have to know what is happening internally and externally. It means being alert to our motives and learning to change unwholesome thoughts and emotions into wholesome ones. Mindfulness is a mental activity that in due course eliminates all suffering." - Ayya Khema, "Be an Island"

"Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel." - Samuel Johnson

"The unexamined life is not worth living." - Socrates

"Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can: all of them make me laugh." - WH Auden

Strawberry daiquiris (Yeah, I know. It suprised me too.)
