Thursday... the happy day!!

Welcome to Thursday. This week in the Posse House...

Questions
Which is your favorite finger and Why? Special thanks to Dr. Mim(Tim) for his very mature response. [Mine is my left thumb because it has one of my favorite scars on it although I don't know how I got it]

Quotes
"People without Goals work for people who have them"
"It's a damn small mind that can only think of one way to spell a word"


Quips
Found this site that I think is responsible for a lot of the funny emails I recieve, it's called Break.com and has some great stuff (it also has some things that you don't really want to see) but on the great list is this fight between a Mongoose and a Cobra!! I loved reading stories about Mongoose(s) when I was a kid- still a kid just bigger now - and so this was pretty cool to find. There is some kind of disclaimer about "no animals were hurt in what was purely a demonstration of how a Mongoose defends itself" Total crap. There is blatantly some kind of awesome club in India with too much time, money, a Mongoose, a Cobra and no fear what-so-ever of animal rights groups on their hands... I salute them! (Also: check out the deer hunting gun on that page)

Quirks
If anyone is a big fan of the Pope, is down the line with their theology or just likes crazy stuff like me check out the Cardinal Ratzinger Fan Club.
Their catch phrase is: "Putting the Smackdown on Herecy since 1981"

Query's
I love hearing kids perspective on the world, these kids were asked about marriage...
Finding the right one...
You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming.- Alan, age 10
Single or Married? It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them.- Anita, age 9 ...you heard her, few more like this one and that pesky feminist movement will be no more than a splattered bug on the windscreen of history.
How would things be different if people didn't get married? There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn't there?- Kelvin, age 8

Quandry's
Damnit! Why did I put so many sections in this post?! It is an "in" joke to say "Questions? Quips? Quotes? Quirks? Query's? Quandry's?" whenever we debrief anything at work... stupidly I decided to use it and then spent the last several hours trying to fill it all. I have a friend Jo who does a weekly email similar in style very well but I may need to work out the kinks. Diploma day was good as usual, England beat Trinidad and Tobago today in another generally uninspiring soccer match. Sven finally played Rooney who didn't do much other than sweat his shirt into a seethrough state in the 30mins he was on the ground, skilled as he is reputed to be I cannot bring myself to like him as a player... I did have some fun this arvo occaisionally cheering for Trinidad and watching the reactions of the English crowd, one kid went on a witch hunt trying to figure out who the traitor was, Beautiful!! The knee is still swollen and a bit sore though I'm getting more mobility and strength, the limp comes and goes depending on how long I've been in the one spot but hopefully this points to a speedier recovery than the last one... I'm praying anyway...

The Jam
These are the lyrics to one of my favourite songs: If I Am by Nine Days

So you're standin on the ledge - It looks like you might fall - Its so far down - Or maybe you were - thinkin about jumpin - Now you could have it all - If you learned a little patience - For though - I cannot fly - I'm not content to crawl - So give me a little credit - Have in me a little faith - I wanna be with you forever - If tomorrow's not too late - But its always too late when you got nothin - So you say - You should never let the sun set on tomorrow - Before the sun rises today

If I am - Another waste of everything you dreamed of - I will let you down - If I am - Only here to watch you as you suffer - I will let you down

So you're walkin on the edge - And you wait your turn to fall - But you're so far gone - That you don't see the hands upheld to catch you - And you could find the fault - In the heart that you've been handed - For though you cannot fly - You're not content to crawl - And its always too late when you got nothin - So you say - But we should never let the sun set on tomorrow - Before the sun rises

If I am - Another waste of everything you hoped for - I will let you down - If I am - Only here to watch you as you suffer - I will let you down

So you're standin on the ledge - It looks like you might fall

If I am - Another waste of everything you dreamed of - I will let you down - If I am - Only here to watch you as you suffer - I will let you down

The answers we find - Are never what we had in mind - So we make it up as we go along - You don't talk of dreams - When i won't mention tomorrow - And we won't make those promises that we can't keep

I will never leave you - I will not let you down - I will never leave you - I will not let you down

Good stuff again Zac.
Cheering for the wrong team can be dangerous to your health, like the day Glen Hoddle almost scored for Spurs against West Ham and I started then stifled a yell of excitement in a split second as hordes of West Ham thugs turned to see who the suicidal idiot was that had committed such a foolish act in their territory!
I agree re Rooney, he's not an attractive person, but he is a good soccer player and did seem to spark England although I reckon Aaron Lennon was more influential.

Big game tonight, Australia V Brazil starts in about an hour. Not expecting miracles, damage control will do.
Croatia and Japan just drew 0-0 which is a good result for us.
