The Seven Deadly Sins

Today we ripped off a blogger named and blog named Mignight Murdina of the blog Not All That Wander Are Lost. This meme was meant to be done with one question a day for 7 days. We are bad at following rules. So we will do it in a day! It is stated that it was “ganked” from Karaokegal. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Cheers to all of us thieves!

I have limits ; don't have seven illustrations for each sin but I so enjoyed doing this meme today.
1 - Pride. Seven great things about yourself. Financial independence / Imagination / Emotional resilience / Showing the ex-hubster I can do what he thinks I can't

2 - Envy. Seven things you lack and covet. J / J jr / Math aptitude / Entrepreneurial skill

3 - Wrath. Seven things that piss you off. Men who propose marriage at the wrong time / Inaccurate research / Santa Demonitas (sluts preten…

Desperado

"Sawadee krap!" the Eagles greeted Bangkokians Sunday night. Exuding cultural cognizance Tim Schmit spoke a whole sentence in Thai and the Impact Arena erupted. Woe is me. I've been in Thailand 13 years and I didn't even know what Tim said. Anyway I felt like I got back a decade younger being happy and thrilled at their performance. A trumpet played the intro to Hotel California. I never heard that before. These are 13 Eagles hits that I love:

1. Desperado
2. Seven bridges road
3. I can't tell you why
4. Take it to the limit
5. Life in the fast lane
6. Best of my love
7. Take it easy
8. Busy being fabulous
9. Love will keep us alive
10. In the city
11. Long road out of Eden
12. Lying eyes
13. New kid in town

Bangkokian on the rocks

Sunday morning, Elephant Island. The sun had a hard time coming out which was perfect for the skin of this visiting Bangkokian. It was her last day on the island. Very soon it was back to reality. Back to work, skyscrapers, crazy traffic. These quiet rocks and the general calm would help her recharge and face the capital again.

Best of my love

The Eagles went live in Bangkok last night. I swayed on my seat and let snippets of a recurring reverie harmonize with "...oh-oh-oh...sweet darling, you got the best of my love..." Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Timothy Schmidt, and Joe Walsh thrilled deeply. My mind wandered around powerful concert lights flashing inside Impact Arena. It must have headed later towards one direction....

This video features the song on the band's 1974 album On The Border. I was then only learning Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. Fast forward thirty-seven years, I relate well with the song. So does one beating heart faraway in the vast, cold blue. It's timelessness.

It's not what it seems so don't wander

Lazaruz Vault by Tom Harper tells of knights and castles; a 12th century poem kept deep in a Scottish forest. The star character, a gradschool student lured by old world affluence, is wondering about what lies on the 6th floor of her employer's headquarters as much as I furrowed my brow over some words in the story. There could be more as I haven't touched chapters 20 - 53 yet. I make each vocabulary simple with just the obvious term of the definition and reminders intended to warn my mind against wandering off.

1. hauberk is a shirt not a partner in crime

2. bittern is a bird not a betel nut

3. fascia is tissue not a hue

4. vavasour is a tenant not a sour guava

5. breton is a horse not a variant spelling of briton

6. brigand is an outlaw not a brigadier

7. declension is an inflection not necessarily a decline

8. donjon is a keep not a dungeon

9. seneschal is a butler not Senegal in the 2000 FIFA World Cup

10. fewter is a holder notHarry Potter's cauldron

11. letch is a satyr not the…

Today we ripped off a blogger named Rol Hirst at the blog Sunset Over Slawit. We've ripped from him once before. He states that he doesn't remember where he stole it. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Cheers to all of us thieves!

As long as there is imagination

The second clinical impression on my son has just been forwarded to me. It is PDD (pervasive developmental disorder). Through the daze I decide to tackle it with optimism, and with as less drama as possible. In an effort to find something to kick start work on this challenge I find inspiration in the words of people who had learning difficulties and disabilities. From Tourette's syndrome to dyslexia, to OCD, to stuttering, they have been there, done that, got the T-shirt. I am going to get my T-shirt too.

1. Adversity leads us to think properly of our state, and so is most beneficial to us. Samuel Johnson

2. Courage is fear holding on a minute longer. George S. Patton

3. If you are going to go through hell, keep going. Winston Churchill

4. Passion is the great slayer of adversity. Focus on strengths and what you enjoy. Charles Schwab

5. We think of children as vulnerable. In my experience, they’re giants. Their bodies and souls are amazingly resilient. What we often mistake for fra…
