by popular demand (careful what you wish for)

Ok, so my fan base has expanded beyond one and I've received at least (exactly) one angry e-mail asking me to "blog again already!" I wish I could convince you that it's been because I've been busy, but I've never been a very good liar--for the very same reason it's been so long since I last blogged--because I'm a lazy, lazy man. I think I've touched on this subject before, so in keeping with the theme, that's all I have to say on the subject of laziness.

Anyhoo, getting on with this post, I haven't just been doing nothing. I've been quite busy doing just slightly more than nothing... I'm not a big horoscope/astrology-type of person, but I enjoy reading this guy because sometimes he's thinking the same things about my sign that I'm coincidentally thinking about myself, and it's eerie and cool and it gives me more food for thought. Of course sometimes his horoscopes seem like total horseshit, but that's why I don't put much faith in astrology in general. However, the day after I started wondering why my goals weren't even theoretically fulfilling me, like in the possible foreseeable future, he felt like blowing my mind with a week to think about this:

Leo (July 23-August 22)
Of course I want to do everything I can to help you make your dreams come true. But right now there's a more pressing concern. You've got to dream bigger and hotter and wilder. You need to demand more from your imagination and conjure up more daring fantasies. Here, then, is a prescription from your soul doctor: In the coming week, spend at least ten minutes a day brainstorming at the outskirts of your understanding.

So I'm not goaling myself with my full potential? I'm not dreaming as hard as I should?

Well, there's another person with a really cool blog that I stumbled upon who does monthly horoscopes, and it's kind of related to the one above:

I broke out the thesaurus just for you. I found something in your size.... Fearless: Courageous, brave, unafraid, bold, undaunted, unflinching, daring, valorous, stout-hearted, bodacious, gutsy, confident, heroic, intrepid, spunky, ballsy. Yeah, try that on and see how you like it. What? Doesn't fit? Oh, you'd rather wear afraid, frightened, spineless, mousy and cowardly? Whatever. Then hear this one: Choice: option, free-will, pick, determination and desire. This is not easy. I can't tell you that choices are going to leave you feeling particularly ballsy, but you sure will know where your spine is. And it's a very nice spine, so pretty! We likey.

Am I ballsy or mousy? And couldn't I be both?

Ah well, fuck it... there's a bit of what I've been thinking about lately.
