Cosplaying at Eastwood

My college friends and I had this reunion last Saturday at Eastwood City and we just had to pose with this cosplayer. I think he was one of the characters in Shaider, or something! Does that show I am an 80's kid?
I think that this guy does not work for Eastwood and he has a tin can for donations in front. And with the way he gamely poses with people like us, I am sure he would have lots of money :)

Little Things To Keep Life Interestting

I got this from a forwarded email and I am happy to say that I am already doing some of the things here. I now keep a happiness journal and I read as much as I can. I just need to work a little on the not-getting-worked-up-over-assholes bit, and I am set!
But I also do and try to write everyday and hey, I embrace my own weirdness. And you should too!

A Single White Rose For Valentine's

My husband have always given me white roses for any occasions and this Valentine's day was no exception. I was really not expecting anything, as two of our kids were recently hospitalized and money was a little tight. So I was touched to receive this single white rose for Valentine's! Its actually not the flower, but the fact that you know and feel that you are loved, that makes this special. He could have given me 3 dozens of roses and I would still feel as loved as with this single white rose! Happy Valentine's everyone!
