Off the cuff:


You're going to value my intelligence. You're going to value my smart ass retorts to any joke you attempt to crack. How my hair curls over my shoulders, my eyes when I'm studying you as you talk, and my hips, Oh man the hips. But that does not mean I do not have my eye on you. Your compliments will flatter me, but do not forget you are dealing with someone who knows her way around words. I place high value in wordplay and their meaning, but only a fool would be naive enough to think that it means shit unless you TALK about it as well as BE about it.



Tell me I'm wrong. Or better, tell me I'm right.

Brain $crambles

1. Inception, that flick will make you think! See it if you haven't. Get your money's worth from Hollywood for once.

2. I've been forced to re-route my plans for school in the fall. Was given my second choice, not first, so I'm gonna play shit smart. Meaning: bide my time, do what needs to be done, and not sweat that it didn't come first.

3. My unconventional taste has brought me a treat I haven't had in a while. Mmm Mmm.

4. Hello SF come August!

5. I need to discuss it with the esposa, but I'd like to get a trip in the works to London.

6. You need to know if you're gonna be a good friend, cool coworker, or someone trying to spit some game at me; make me think something new, teach me something, school me on something. You'll either continue to add to the great opinion I already have of you or you gained mad brownie points.

Skateistan

I saw a small sidebar on this organization called Skateistan. Did some reading on it and I'm real impressed with what they do and how they go about it.
           Skateistan is a co-educational skate school based in Kabul, Afghanistan that began with Australian skaters Oliver Percovich and Sharna Nolan. Children in Kabul were eager to learn to skate, so Percovich and Nolan stretched three boards and taught a group of kids. From there, the idea emerged to give the kids a chance to learn something that will help them 'transcend social barriers' and give them something positive despite the strife that may surround them.

If I knew how to do anything more than push wood, I'd volunteer in a heartbeat. They include both the boys and the girls, it's so cute to see the little girls wear the headscarves with the helmet over it, there's some ethnic differences for you.

Public Service Announcement:
If you don't know what your values are, you'll go around breaking that shit right and left. In the end, you'll wonder why you're feeling bad and not quite know why. Establish what you hold in high regard. Is it loyalty? Family? Creativity? Courage? Respect for yourself and others?
     We may be young, which can be okay to get a 'by' on some issues, but at least have a leg to stand on. That gives you at least some type of legitimacy. -6/30/10
