Dave forwarded this to me. George Carlin is actually one of the celebrities that I have met. When I used to perform in Red Bank, for one show, my group of friends was leaving rehearsal in the theater, and he was the the 'act' that would be performing in that theater. So, I walked out of rehearsal one day - a few days before the opening of OUR show - and a familiar looking man was out on the street, and smiled and was like, "hey! How are you doing!?" I honestly thought he was another friend of mine from a totally different theater - I knew he was familiar, but I couldn't remember his name, etc etc. I said hi and we had small talk - how are things? How are you doing? Or something like that. Shook my hand, how have things been...

A second later, I meet up with some of the people from my show (we were on our way to get food or something) and my friend Jay was like, "Hey did you guys see George Carlin?" And I'm like - YES THAT'S WHO IT WAS!

Dave has always been a fan of his and he was the one who called me yesterday morning to tell me the news. He just forwarded this me - a good read.


The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings
but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend
more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger
houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have
more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more
experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too
little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too
tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk
too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years
to life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and
back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We
conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things,
but not better things.

We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the
atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan
more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We
build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies
than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and
small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are
the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken
homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway
morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do
everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is
much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when
technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can
choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete...

Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not
going to be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe,
because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.

Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is
the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a
cent.

Remember, to say, "I love you" to your partner and your loved ones,
but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it
comes from deep inside of you.

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person
will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the
precious thoughts in your mind.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the
moments that take our breath away.

George Carlin






Yesterday after work, it was a very lazy evening. I tested the pool water with my parents to make sure that all is running well, and all is fine. Then, my father and I took Tuffy for a walk. Now, Tuffy came with us to check the pool as well, and pooped while out by the pool. I used the baggie for his walk to clean up that poo. Then, on the walk, he took a poo ON THE SIDEWALK and I had to scrape it up with a local stick. It was pretty gross. Who know a little dog could be filled with so much poo?

After the walk, I went back home and watched 4 episodes of Sex and the City and most of the 2 hour Bachelorette show. Ha. My father watched 2.5 SATC episodes with me - and my mom joined in too. Alyson I think caught one as well. My father had never seen it - he has heard about it, and knew that it was a movie, but didn't realize there was a show. He thought it was funny and it was slightly awkward for some parts - hahaha - but my parents are cool. (We were watching the start of Season 6 with Berger, and Samantha just meeting Smith)

And rewatching these episodes now reminds me that Dave basically reminds me of Berger. He is the adorable, good natured, nice guy. He is good in social situations, has good insight around friends, etc. There were some problems and what not that Carrie and Berger had and that isn't like Dave and I, but in general, Dave reminds me of Berger. And Berger even has sideburns!

I have web design work that I need to do soon as well. I also want to deep clean the house before my party. The weather is still iffy. Today, the morning weather said that Saturday will be nice (89 and sunny - good for a pool day), but weather.com still claims there will be thunderstorms. Ahhhh.

I LOVE SATC. I love when Carrie dated Berger despite how he dumped her :o but how they interact and are so good together that's how my relationship is with Joseph. Joseph HATES that show though lol He says it's nothing but trouble for him haha

He dumps her on a post it note, right? I don't remember. I think he's the post it guy.

Dave actually likes it! He says he used to watch it when it was on tv. Dave just like, physically and personality wise reminds me of Berger. haha I told him that too and he's like, I guess I can see it!
