Valentines Tasties.

I came home from the gym to discover my wife had made us a whole plate of prosciutto wrapped dates that had been stuffed with cheese and broiled in the oven. They are sweet, salty, cheesy, chewy and crispy all at the same time and I'm trying not to gobble them all because there is more coming. Right now I smell onions being caramelized. If it's what I think it is, I'm in for quite a meal.

This makes my gift of roses and Burdrick chocolate seem lame by comparison.

Updates on dinner are to follow.

What I want for this year.

Instead of resolutions, this is what I want out of this year:

1. To have greater faith in myself and my own abilities

2. To have more faith in the grand scheme of the universe.

3. To do more of what I want to do before I look back at too many missed opportunities.

I think that's a good start.

No rest for the wicked.

Who says I get a day off now that I'm done with the semester. Today I have done the following:

Taken the dog to the groomer.

Cleaned up Julie's car after said dog knocked over my hot chocolate.

Done 3 loads of laundry and 1 load of dishes.

Bought a snowblower.

Wrapped Julie's holiday gifts.

Moved a ton of boxes from my father's dining room to the basement.

I'm not moving from the couch for the rest of the night.

You are the Hanged Man

Self-sacrifice, Sacrifice, Devotion, Bound.

With the Hanged man there is often a sense of fatalism, waiting for something to happen. Or a fear of
loss from a situation, rather than gain.

The Hanged Man is perhaps the most fascinating card in the deck. It reflects the story of Odin who offered himself as a sacrifice in order to gain knowledge. Hanging from the world tree, wounded by a spear, given no bread or mead, he hung for nine days. On the last day, he saw on the ground runes that had fallen from the tree, understood their meaning, and, coming down, scooped them up for his own. All knowledge is to be found in these runes.

The Hanged Man, in similar fashion, is a card about suspension, not life or death. It signifies selflessness, sacrifice and prophecy. You make yourself vulnerable and in doing so, gain illumination. You see the world differently, with almost mystical insights.

In hell...

I was working on some wedding plans earlier today and I had the food network on in the background. About a half an hour ago I found myself getting a headache that advil wouldn't touch. Then I realized what was causing it.

Rachel Ray had been blathering away on my TV. The headache disappeared as soon as I changed the channel.

In hell, I bet all the lunch ladies sound like her. No wonder her husband paid women to spit on him.

Oh also, in hell, there is no bacon.
