a few random thoughts

i. I think that one of the most unattractive qualities in a person is pride. That combined with an unwillingness to believe that someone else might have a better idea/plan/suggestion, etc. than oneself. I hope I never come across that way.

ii. Here are a few of my favorite IM taglines over the past few months:

-The face that launched a thousand ships
-I brake for boys
-High collar and baggy pants say "I'm a pro!"
-Billy goats love for you to pet them....unless you have no hands
-arthritis is the new black
-Beck "in the USSR"
-sometimes I DO feel like I have to live like a refugee
-my fingers are like delicate flowers
-the power of the babe
-DJ Peach Blossoms
-seek advice from an octogenarian
-I'm happy, but I'm aware of the ironic rammifications of my happiness
-back in the days when I was a teenager - before I had status and before I had a pager
-death cabernet for cutie
-yell "I hate you beans! I hate you beans!" at the beans because, really, you love them.
-g sharp major flat
-hey, I'm 5'6"......do I still need to pay?
-even chimney sweeps sometimes have dirty chimneys themselves *nodding*
-not bound by the confines of day-time specific food

And I'm spent.

I think it is important to have pride, but it's not good to think you are better than everyone else. I like
"back in the days when I was a teenager - before I had status and before I had a pager." Were you refering to the lyrics from KJ-52's song Back in the Day where he says: "Back in the day when I was a teenager
Before I had status and a two-way pager
You could find the KJ listening to hip-hop
Blastin it so loud my parents was like "Turn it off""

Ha ha! Actually I was referring to A Tribe Called Quest's song "Excursions."

"Back in the days when I was a teenager
Before I had status and before I had a pager
You could find the abstract listening to hip hop
My pops used to say, it reminded him of be-bop
I said, well daddy don’t you know that things go in cycles
The way that bobby brown is just ampin like michael"

and so on...

I think you're talking about this definition of pride:
- sense of one's own proper dignity or value; self-respect.
I'm talking about this definition:
-An excessively high opinion of oneself; conceit.

No... I was talking about that second one(kidding). While looking for lyrics I also saw that song. I thought it could be that one.

it don't really matter to me,
you can believe what you want to believe, but you DON'T have to live like a refujay
