Right? Right

I always try to do the right thing. Sometimes I mess up, but I mean to do the right thing, intend to do it. Sometimes things happen that cause things to work out in ways you never intended. Signals get crossed. Monkeywrenches get thrown. Every now and then, you can find yourself intending to do the right thing but ultimately doing the exact opposite. Thankfully, that hasn't happened lately.

I know without even asking that all of you live your lives trying to do the right thing as well.

We read stuff in the papers every day about bad people doing evil things that scare the daylights out of us. Still, I think that people as a whole are basically good and want to do the right thing.

I don't know what put this thought in my head, other than it's the Full Moon. One never knows where one's thoughts will stray when the big moon is out.

Do beware, Snow. And if you need tinfoil, use it!:-)

Ignorance scares me, too, Roxan.

Rashional - Well thought out and calmly accessorized.

Serena Joy said...

LOL, Seeley. Good definition. Anything goes as long as it's properly accessorized.:-)

Helloooooooooo from the werewolves of London!

Case in point: I was in one of those bookstores with a Starbucks inside. As I was perusing the aisles, I noticed an attractive lady enjoying a coffee and reading a book in one of Starbucks' open-backed chairs.

From the back (because that's where they kept the "How to Please the Ladies" books), I could see that her thong underwear were riding up in back, waaay north of her jeans.

I wondered if I should tell her, thereby saving her the embarrassment of getting home later on and discovering she'd been in public with a blatently advertised wedgie.

Serena Joy said...

Aaaoooooooooooooooowwww, Pinks. Whole lotta howlin' going on, girly. I love me a good werewolf or zombie on the night of the big moon -- which could explain why my mojo finally worked.:-)

Puggy, if I may offer my two cents worth, I do believe the right thing to do would have been to tell her -- because let me tell you, women HATE WEDGIES and are mortified when they show in public. She might have slapped you, but what the hell, you'd have done the right thing. And I'd have brought you an icebag.:-)

Lee said...

I'm always right, aren't I? Just ask me! ;)

On a serious note, I do try to do the right thing and always treat others as I would myself like to be treated. It doesn't always quite work out...but one has to try.

The full moon puts lot of thoughts into our heads...stirs things up greatly!

"Chandni raat ko phir aag lagi hai dekho... phir bohot der talak aaj ujaalaa hogaa... rakh ho jaayegaa to phir se amaavas hogi..."

Look, the moon is on fire once again...It is going to be very bright all around for some time now...when it burns out and turns to ashes it will turn dark once again...

Serena Joy said...

I know, Lee. It's when it doesn't work out that you start to ask questions. Add the big moon to the mix and God knows what might happen.:)

That's pretty, Mona. I really enjoy it when you write things in your language and then translate it.

Just don't date anyone named Lawrence Talbot!!!
Especially NOW!!!!

Hi Serena...xoxoxoxbgxoxo

Serena Joy said...

I'm really tired, G, so help me out here -- who the heck is Lawrence Talbot? I know Talbot's, for women's clothing. I'm guessing that's not him and he's not a famous cross dresser, huh?:-)

Hi, Galen.

Hale McKay said...

I see a bad moon a-risin'

The Grunt said...

Your personality is tagged, Serena. Come by my blog to find out how you got into this mess:D

MONA said...

Serena, they told me that I was an extravered said:

A true admirer of beauty and art
Someone who seeks out variety and adventure
Not interested in status or material wealth
Able to act wisely without stopping to think

Serena Joy said...

Turned out to be a pretty good moon, Mike -- but don't stop the song.:)

Ahhh, Grunt. Don't be surprised if one of my flying monkeys pays you a little visit. I'll see what I can do with it, but don't think I'm not measuring houses. :-)

That sounds like a pretty good assessment, Mona.:)

where in the hell did the term monkeywrench come from? Have we ever seen a monkey with a wrench in his hand..ok GWB comes to mind but....this was before his time.

Good luck in court tomorrow.:)

Serena Joy said...

Hi, TC, and thanks for the luck. Nope, I've never seen a monkey with a wrench, my flying ones and GWB notwithstanding.:-)
