Texas Renaissance Festival yesterday! We had a great time. I even wore my Kilt.

The monster was the best friend I ever had.

Several years ago, I started this thing where I try to watch at least one Christmas movie/show every day between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I always try and find something new to watch as well as the classics. So, give me your best recommendation of a movie/show I should watch this year. Go!

Last night the Dallas Stars announced they are going to immortalize Mike Modano with a statue outside the American Airlines Center.

Modano is, and will always be, my wife’s favorite player. So, naturally, I had to buy tickets to that game immediately when it was announced.

God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well.

I talked about Apple’s journaling app here and here. Almost a month into this experiment and I’m still using it on a daily basis. I decided to give myself to the end of November to make a decision about staying with it for the long haul. For now, though, it seems pretty safe to say I will be!

If you want a symbolic gesture, don’t burn the flag; wash it.

I think people should get tickets for driving too slow. If driving 20 miles over the speed limit is dangerous, so is driving 20 miles under the speed limit. Perhaps even more dangerous.

Wrote this in my notebook yesterday:

How to fix my attitude:
1. Stop caring what other people think.
2. See number one.

You never know how much time you have left.

I think it’s interesting that I ask a question about carrying a notebook on a daily basis and then I see Peter McKinnon posted this video today.

There are plenty of reasons not to put up with the world as it is.

- Jose Saramago

Question for those that carry a notebook around:

Whether its a Bullet Journal, regular notebook, Field Notes, or other pocket notebook, how did you get in the habit of carrying the notebook. I write in mine when I have it. I just tend to forget to take it with me when I go places.

The jealous are possessed by a mad devil and a dull spirit at the same time.
