Tatoo Removals More Common

Yahoo Article on tattoo removal

This is exactly why I will never (I hope) get a tattoo.

The Philosopher:Epictetus

Francesca brought some stuff about a philospher Epictetus last weekend. Just read it on T-Day nite. Some things that I want to remember from what this bloke preached:

For Epictetus, a happy life and a virtuous life are synonymous. Happiness and personal fulfillment are the natural consequences of doing the right thing.

His prescription for a good life centered on three main themes:

1) Master your desires
2) preforming your duties
3) Learning to thing clearly about yourself and your relations within the larger community

Whereas our society (practically, if not always explicitly) regards prefessional achievement, wealth, power, and fame as desirable and admirable, Epictetus views these as individual and irrelevant to true happiness.

his practical observation was that a virtuous life leads to inner coherence and outward harmony. There is great relief in being morally consistent: The soul relaxes, and we can thus efficiently move forward in our endeavors, as Epictetus would say, “without hindrance”.

My Comment
I used to read philosophy, especially when I returned from a long trip. Trying to find answers…now – I don’t have the patience I used to have to sort through it all. Francesca’s cheat sheet was good in that it broke down what this guy was saying. One thing I hope to take away and re-instill – is to just live with virtue.

For me that means, don’t lie. Chris and I talked about just being completely honest with people since we started BootsnAll. I think we have and I hope I have in my personal life as well. No lies, no worries.

Never ask the following…

Never ask…

1) A girl if she is pregnant
2) A couple if they are getting married
3) A couple if they are trying for kids.

I made the mistake of asking one of these this past weekend. Damn…make sure you learn your lesson Mr. Keener.

Seattle Seahawks and Joey Harrington

Dewey has an extra ticket to the Seattle Seahawks game today so I am the lucky one to get it. He is picking me up in the next 10 minutes or so for a breakkie at the Tin Shed, then a 3 hour drive up to Seattle. I am looking forward to seeing Joey Harrington, former Duck quarterback.

I’ll take the digitil camera, so hopefully I’ll get some shots whereby the players don’t look like little dots.

Story about me and Korean Hamburgers

from Soogi Kim/Clayton

But I have to tell you, it was pretty awesome hearing your Dad’s voice on the phone when I asked for you. It was like old times when I called your home in L-Wood. My mom asked about you and told me a funny story…

She said that one day you stopped by during dinner when I wasn’t home and you ate Korean Hamburgers with my Mom and Dad. She said that you ate so fast and so much, that she kept giving you more and more hamburgers until you finally said, “Mrs. Kim is it ok if I stop eating.” Pretty ridiculous.

So the quote of the day is “Korean hamburger is good, but too many Korean Hamburgers make your stomach hurt.”

Hung over on What?

A mate of mine from Seattle is down to visit for the weekend. He arrived around 6 p.m. yesterday and we went out to County Cork. I had 2 beers there and we split a 1/2 bottle of wine. I got drunk off 2 beers and about 1.5 glasses of wine. Not sure how considering I am 200 lbs. plus.

Almonds and working out

Men’s Health told me they are good for me. I bought a bag at Trader Joe’s this past weekend and munch on a few during the day.

Also, it’s good to shock your muscles at the gym…don’t do the exact same exercises day after day. Try new machines….do cardio on something else. (I think that was a Men’s Health tip too)

Trace Armstrong Quote

“Sometimes it’s as subtle as you walk in and say, ‘I feel great,’ and it has an impact,” defensive end Trace Armstrong said. “Then all of a sudden they say, ‘I feel good, too.”’

from this article

True mate…a postive attitude is contagious.
