Today's Note from the Universe

I get these every day. It's nice to have "the universe" telling me how wonderful I am. It's nicer to have other people do that too, but in the absence of such, this works too. Here's the Christmas Eve version:

If it's not yet obvious to you, the real reason for this, and all seasons, is you, Beth.

A more perfect child of the Universe has never lived. Until now, only celebrations cloaked in myth and mystery could hint at your divine heritage and sacred destiny. You are life's prayer of becoming and its answer: the first light at the dawn of eternity, drawn from the ether, so that I might know my own depth, discover new heights, and revel in seas of blessed emotion.

A pioneer into illusion, an adventurer into the unknown, and a lifter of veils. Courageous, heroic, and exalted by legions in the unseen.

To give beyond reason, to care beyond hope, to love without limit; to reach, to stretch, and dream, in spite of your fears.

These are the hallmarks of divinity - traits of the immortal - your badges of honor. May you wear them with a pride as great as the immeasurable pride we feel for you.

Your light has illuminated darkened paths, your gaze has lifted broken spirits, and already your life has changed the course of history.

This is the time of year we celebrate Beth Agnew.
Bowing before Greatness,

The Universe

p.s. Supercoolhappylovething, you are, Beth.

Living every day as best I can to make that all true. Merry Christmas to all (dare I say Merry Bethmas?), and I wish you every blessing in the New Year. May all your dreams come true!

Well, that's one way of looking at it

There's nothing like an end of year wrap-up of major stories. This one is courtesy of our friends over at The Onion which is one of the more clever sites reporting on issues that you never knew we had.

If the Christmas season is stressing you out, or you're just overwhelmed by the fact that another year is about to come to a close, have a read through some of the material on It will have you smiling, laughing, perhaps even sharing.

We may need a little Christmas, but we need a little absurdity more.

Fatal Similarity

FASHION OF THE DECADE - A rider holds up her yellow Livestrong bracelet during a rally July 26, 2006, in Newton, Iowa. Introduced by Nike in May 2004, the yellow silicone band sells for $1 to raise money for the Lance Armstrong Foundation, which raises awareness and funds for cancer research. While similar bracelets have been adopted by other charities, some hospitals allegedly have cut the Livestrong wristbands from patients' wrists because of their resemblance to yellow 'do not resuscitate' bands used by some medical facilities.

File under: It seemed like a good idea at the time.
