2 things

the scripture of the day:
Many plans are in a man's mind, but it is the Lord's purpose for him that will stand.
Proverbs 19:21 (Amplified Bible)

the word of the day:
tete-a-tete \TAYT-uh-TAYT; TET-uh-TET\, adjective:
1. Private; confidential; familiar.
2. A private conversation between two people.
3. A short sofa intended to accommodate two persons.

Tete-a-tete??? i've never once heard this word used in conversation. anyone? anyone?
I'm going to go sit on a tete-a-tete now and have a tete-a-tete. that's right you heard me... a tete-a-tete on a tete-a-tete.

the Fray

have i mentioned that i like THE FRAY? and Issac Slade?
since i missed their concert here, i'm really thinking about traveling a great distance to go see them in concert in September. why not? i need a vacation!! why not make a vacation out of it? man, if i could only pull it off... we'll see.

get this, according to AOL, Isaac mentored a crack-addicted teen, providing the inspiration for the title track How to Save a Life: "I wrote the song about how there's no formula for bringing somebody out of that."

from page 18

so i'm reading this book, Bird by Bird. it's pretty good stuff...
funny thing, i read something in it the other day that sounded very similar to something i wrote here in June... my another fog blog.

anyway... here's the paragraph from page 18:
E.L. Doctorow once said that "writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can see only as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way." You don't have to see where you're going, you don't have to see your destination or everything you will pass along the way. You just have to see two or three feet ahead of you. This is right up there with the best advice about writing, or life, I have ever heard.

is that good or what? because it's so true.

i'm listening to The Fray right now... i love music.

i like icecream...

yes, i like ice cream...
and i LOVE guacamole...
but i'm not sure i would have ever thought of Icy Hot Avocado Ice Cream.
hmmm... sounds interesting... i just might try it.
i also found Alton Brown's recipe for Avocado Ice Cream... but i'm thinking the icy hot recipe sounds better.
