How to be a good friend

...my daughter's grade 2 classroom had a poster on the walls on how to be a friend. It was such a revelation for me I wrote it down:

* Smile at people
* Say nice things to your friends
* Ask them to join in games
* Listen to your friends when they talk to you
* Think about how your friend feels
* Play and have fun with your friends

Do what you wanna--do what you will

"Do what you wanna--do what you will;
Just don't mess up your neighbor's thrill--
and when you pay the bill, kindly leave a little tip
to help the next poor sucker on his one-way trip."
-- Frank Zappa, "The Meek Shall Inherit Nothing"

Then why do you make me knock?

Our cube is our home.

Our cube is our home. Every time we re-enter our cube we are filled with the voices of the others. They give our life meaning, fill the void, expand our knowledge. From our cube we search far and wide for technology and species that will add to our perfection. Away from our cube we are incomplete, but in our cube we are whole. Stress is irrelevant.

Pray, and all your sins are hooked upon the sky.

Pray, and all your sins are hooked upon the sky.
Pray, and the heathen lie will disappear.
Prayers, they hide the saddest views,
Believing the strangest things, Loving the alien.
-- David Bowie
