In the Spirit of the Day

It's Spirit Day. Wear purple. 
Say something nice to someone 
you wouldn't usually talk to. 
Stop attacking people 
for being different.

The Real "Dude on Skates"

Johnny during his warmup 
before his short program at Finlandia.

OK, things are pretty much still Disaster: The Boxed Set (literally. So many boxes. What IS all this crap?) at the Haus of Bink, so I don't have a lot of time to write any words of my own, so today I'm borrowing some from other awesome people whilst I dig through the same boxes for the thousandth time to try to find the glass thingy that goes in the microwave without which I am utterly helpless, and also ponder the Companion Mini-Volume—Greatest Hits: If It's Already in a Box and I Forgot to Label It and I Totally Don't Know What It Is and We've Already Lived a Week Without It, Can It Just Be Donated to Goodwill as Long as We're Sure It's Not Grandpa's Ashes...?

Dreaming in Darkness

A man must dream a long time 
in order to act with grandeur, 
and dreaming is nursed 
in darkness.
