Full of Complex Carbohydrates and MicroNutrients

I am a novelty to many (and I'm fine with that).
I have a very silly sense of humor usually riddled with malapropisms (and I'm fine with that, too).
I ask too many questions of Life and I expect all the answers.
I trust people too easily when I shouldn't; however, I respect everyone regardless…unless they do something to make me think twice.
I don't cheat. I am tactful yet will give the truth up front (and never mean to hurt anyone's feelings with it).
I like to help the people who have helped me, and even those who have not.
I never forget... but sometimes I misplace things.
I never lose hope.
I am awesomely blessed for the people who have come into my life, and I am blessed for the people who have left because I realize I didn't need them anyway.
I honestly feel that laughter is the best medicine you can have.
I believe in being strong when everything else seems to be going wrong.
I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles. In other words, I'm human, and definitely not perfect.
But tomorrow is another day, and there's so much cheese to be had...

Happy Birthday, Boris Karloff...

William Henry Pratt was born on this day in Victorian England, one hundred and twenty-three years ago.

Lauded for his vast array of talents that spanned much of the 20th century, the actor known the world over as Boris Karloff starred in film (including the one that made him most famous, 'Frankenstein'), stage, music and children's fare (as the narrator in 'Dr. Seuss's How the Grinch Stole Christmas').

And to those who had the honor to have met him, of whom walked away with the impression of him being the epitome of what a kind-natured Victorian gentleman truly was... to the end.

Thank you for the astonishing legacy you have left us - and for all the delicious, immense frights you gave this author as a young girl, shuddering with fear as she watched your classic Universal Studios monster movies back in the safety and comfort of her suburban home.

I raise a glass and drink to you, dear Sir.
