So, the top story is...
Rafa won the U.S. Open!
Talk about being surrounded by good cosmic energy. He's got the stuff in abundance.
Me on the other hand?
I was washing my face the other night, when one of my not-very-long fingernails nicked the tip of my nose in just the perfect way to slice it open. Now, I have this unsightly gash that will gush blood if a butterfly in Tokyo flaps its wings just right, as this chaos theory graph shows.
This week, of all weeks, I need more cosmic justice than ever before. Instead, I'm picking off my facial features one by one with my own fingernail.
I'm all for creating my own luck. After all, it's not pure luck that Rafa landed where he is. But sometimes, even after all the hard work, you need a little cosmic ooomph.
Maybe all y'all are feeling the same way right now, so here's what I propose. And if we do it right, my entire bloggerville will be shrouded in a blanket of Providence. (the luck, not the city)
Steps to capture Rafa's Good Fortune:
1. If all of my blog readers will kindly cross your fingers. (Left and right hands)
2. Next cross your toes with the toes of the person on your left. (I will personally cross my toes with Rafa's, thus completing the energy loop).
3. Everyone spontaneously start singing: "People all over the world... Join hands... Start the Love Drain... Love Drain."
It's okay if you're at work, or reading this on your iphone on a commuter train, or whatever. Go ahead and belt it out... Wait. Hold up. I am just getting news (from Sam standing behind me) that the correct words are "Love Train" not "Love Drain". Even better.
4. And for the final step, if someone could get David Archuleta to sing a special rendition of "All we are saying... is give peace a chance!"
Bonus: Does anyone have a personal connection to Kofi Annan? Or perhaps Nelson Mandela?
Those guys can make anything happen. Anyone?
Thanks for all y'all's constant support! And I wish you all good fortune too.
