Silly Laws & William Shatner

"There is hope for the future because God has a sense of humor, and we are funny to God."

-Bill Cosby

Ok, so I was sitting by myself yesterday afternoon, having a good old fashioned poutfest, when I thought to myself, "Girl... get over it." It's time to get over it. Granted, I don't let go of things easily, and I am highly resistant to change, but if 2007 hasn't taught me anything else, it has taught me that change is going to happen, with or without my permission. It's time to get my humor back. So, while I have to admit I am still holding onto certain people, some distant places, and things, I am back on the path to whatever comes next. The simple truth is, I would rather be at OzzFest, then wasting time feeling sorry for myself. I would love to go to OzzFest sometime, I think it would be a hoot. It may not be possible this year, with all the stuff I have coming up, but maybe next year. :) I think Ozzy Osbourne is kinda cool, as is his wife Sharon. That is one smart, snazzy lady who knows how to live. :)

What do I need to do to cope with my situations? What do I need to do to live? What could help me feel a little better about things? I know... the answer is always in my love for music and humor. Two things we mortals simply cannot survive without. So, to get your week, and mine, off on the right note, how about a YouTube video of William Shatner performing Elton John's, "Rocket Man" at the 1978 Sci-Fi Awards. LOL. The first time I saw this clip I laughed so hard I cried. Now THAT is good for the soul. For those of you who cannot view video clips, rest assured I thought of you as well, and have compiled a list of actual Dumb Laws, that are currently on the books in certain states. So watch and laugh, or read and laugh, but just remember to laugh!
