Anyway, a male friend on Facebook (which I also have because my publisher wanted me to have a Web presence) posted a status today that kind of tied into my Senior Dating blog. Here is what he said:
"Once in awhile,
Right in the middle of an ordinary life,
Love gives us a fairy tale."
Simple, to the point, and true. I once wrote a poem called "When Love Finds You." I probably blogged about that over on MySpace, but I'd be lucky if I could ever find it there anymore. (Have I told you all lately how much I hate what they have done to MySpace?) The gist of the poem was: Would you know love if it bit you on the ass? Some do; most don't, however.
I have several sayings that I keep on a running marquee on one of my computers. Most are inspirational, some are funny, some just plain blunt. Here are a few:
"Nipples to the wind."
"Fuck 'em if they don't know it's good."
"I'm a lonesome heart in a big, bad world."
"Birds fly because they think they can fly."
"Same shit, different guy."
"If you can't get laid on your birthday, it doesn't bode well for the rest of the year."

Of course, I could add some of my own quotations here, but you hear mine all the time. Feel free to comment with some of your all-time favorites. Meantime, have a great 2011 and may you know love if it bites your butt.
