Where does the good go

Things I’ve lost*

My spare car keys
The number of that dude I met in Charlotte
My favorite black platform sneakers
Scrabble games to better players
Scrabble games to worse players
Passwords to password-protected blogs I used to have
E-mail addresses
My temper
Patience for bullshit
My perfect eyesight
My first car
A device capable of playing cassette tapes
My jacks’ playing skills
Dental coverage (ow my tooth hurts)
My Thorn Birds DVD
Poker hands
My voice
My grandparents
My gallbladder
Half my family tree
My toys
My youth
The plot
My belief in karma
The decorative buttons on my jean jacket sleeves
My place in line
My place in the world

    A comment to one of your twitter post — you have 30 days from your b-day to finish CLE — why are you in such a rush?

    You and Pat Buchanan both.

    I really liked it when Heather did it, I like your list a lot too. I was thinking of doing it.

    “My belief in karma” I second that! Aholes get rewarded, nice people get screwed over. Life is unfair. No matter how many times I say it, think it, or write it – it doesn’t make it easier to swallow.

    Maybe karma is real. But the assholes often think they’re the nice guys?
    (not intended at either of you of course, just sayin from a logical prespective the bad guy rarely thinks he’s the bad guy)

    I remember. :)

    I was mostly referring to other people who I think are aholes. Actually, I don’t think I’m the nicest person. I def. don’t think there is a place in heaven for me, maybe purgatory?! (I hope.) Look I get that everyone has their own issues, problems, and basically shit to deal with – but some, they just have it a tiny bit easier than others. The only way karma works is internally, meaning if you are a bad person and nothing happens to you – you are still a bad person. But if you are a good person, you grow from the crap that happens to you. Personally I’m stunted. (I don’t know how to express this idea well.)

    Oh. See, I just meant that Im a really good person and if karma were real I would have won the Mega Millions by now.

  8. Pdov Says:

    I mostly think of karma as it relates to other people. I guess I’m vindictive that way. Do I want to win the lottery? Do I think I deserve it because I’m a nice person? Yes.

  9. Dawn Summers Says:

    hahahaha. Exactly.

  10. fisch Says:

    I found a long time ago that it’s a lot easier to be happy if I just wish that someone else DOESN’T win the lottery. My wishes come true every single time, it’s amazing.

  11. Dawn Summers Says:

    Wait, so this is *your* fault? Fucker, you’re so going down. Grr

    I won $3 in Powerball yesterday.

  13. Dawn Summers Says:

    Oh snap! I won $3 in Megamillions on friday. Gotta cash it in!

  14. pearatty Says:

    See, we *are* good people. Karma is rewarding us.

  15. Dawn Summers Says:

    We are evidently only a little bit good though. Pout.
