My Favorite Bit of Paper Cup Philosophy

The Way I See It #76

The irony of commitment is that it's deeply liberating - in work, in play, in love. The act frees you from the tyranny of your internal critic, from the fear that likes to dress itself up and parade around as rational hesitation. To commit is to remove your head as the barrier to your life.

Unrepentant, Unforgiven Flower Muncher

Dylan, you villain,

you rotter. Do not eat my

plants again, or else.

In my ears right now: Rolling Stones, Beast of Burden. Yes, he is a burdensome beast.

Something that charmed me: Despite my urging, "Kitty, kitty, kitty," he would not make eye contact with me while he lay in such close proximity to the plant.

Interesting news spot: (For those of us who love these creatures despite there being no rational reason to do so.)



  1. Eye contact? From the Villain? He looks like he feels entitled.

  2. He learned everything he knows from you, Badger! You know he's always been a prince.

  3. Not only silly, but (as the Badger suggests) he's a bit arrogant. Hey, wait! I put the roof over our heads, feed us, clean the litter box . . and I'm not all that arrogant. I love that cat.
