Which ______ are you?

So, I totally just pissed away an hour doing this... but thanks to the beauty of the internet, I at least have something to show for it.

Jake's Blog: My new favorite Craigslist post

Jake's Blog: My new favorite Craigslist post

Okay, this is great, two, count 'em - two, really funny things in one day. And thanks to this fancy new "BlogThis" extension/plugin for Firefox, I can effortlessly blog it at record pace.

Speaking of firefox... here's where that plugin can be found. (For all 2 of the readers I have - even though I doubt they use firefox.)

This is by a large margin, the most entertaining thing I have seen this week. And since it's Friday (!) (also St. Patrick's Day (!)), that's pretty good.

I also feel that I identify with this blurb quite a bit. I've held the theory for a long time that a part-time girlfriend would be about the best thing for me. I'm not terribly dependent, I'm good at being alone, and frankly, am so annoyingly indecisive that a part-time relationship would probably last a great deal longer than a full-time one. Although, if you total up the amount of time spent together, it would probably balance out.

Anyways, I'm entertained.

Oh, and since I'm (supposedly) one-sixth Irish, Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

"The truth is more important than the facts."
--Frank Lloyd Wright

Uh, in most situations that'd be a maybe, at best.

If the facts do not support what you propose to be the "truth," then you're likely going to look stupid. If I were to say that the truth about cigarettes is that they make you look cool, well, that is kinda true, but how cool do you look when you're hacking up your lung every morning? (Okay, that may not have been the best example.)

One area where truth does have the ability to trump facts, however, is in religion. What people believe to be the truth about God is not normally based on Scientific fact. It's simply a matter of faith... which is a totally different topic then fact versus truth.

Cowboy Wisdom

Sit tall in the saddle, hold your head up high
Keep your eyes fixed where the train meets the sky
Live like you ain’t afraid to die
And don’t be scared, just enjoy your ride
--Chris LeDoux
