Valentine's Day and spelling

Cake Wrecks = pure delight.

The Hardest Three Words To Say: "Guys, I've been wanting to say this for a while now, but...[deep breath]...well, it's just never felt like the right time, you know? And now here we are, just the two of us and the Internet, and I think...no, I KNOW...that we're finally ready to take that next step.

Ok. Here goes:

Wait. That came out wrong. I mean...

Um, that is, what I'm trying to say is...

Hang on; I've almost got it...

Yeah. Something like that.

And also:

So if you see Al, be sure to let him down easy.

Of course, declarations of love are par for the course today. Not to mention stuff like this:

And this:

And even this:

Still, when it comes to love, I think Cupid says it best:

Yeah. That's like, 'whoah.'

Taking "the other" to lunch

TED talks are mind and spirit candy. In this talk, Elizabeth Messer talks about the increasing polarity in our culture. Those of different religions, opinions, parties, etc. aren't just different, they're evil or stupid or wrong. We reduce the worth of those who think other than we do.

This isn't any big revelation. But Messer's suggested antidote is. Take someone who doesn't share your viewpoints or religion or party or affiliation to lunch. Go and listen. And be listened to. It's a small step but it's a step. And that's something.

It starts a bit slow but be patient. It's worth it!
