7 Red, Redux

Out of 1703 posts written to date, I figured I might as well recycle some of them. Not necessarily my favorites, since there are too many of them to remember which ones I may have favored. I was thinking of doing it by date, but then I found that I was apparently too lazy to post anything on March 22, 2007, 2008, 2009... So, then I went down the list, looked at some old titles, and opened up some of the weirder ones to see what was what.

Today, I'm recycling the one entitled "7 Red" from December 28, 2006.

Since “7” is, after all, one of my lucky numbers and it’s about to become the year 2007, I have this niggling sense that maybe it would be unlucky to not have at least a couple of Resolutions. But then, everything that comes to mind is something that I do (or try to do) all the time anyway; e.g.,

- Do no harm (unless your hand is forced).
- Work hard, at both what you like to do and what you get paid to do.
- Maintain as equal a balance as possible (or practical) in all things.
- Embrace new ideas and discover new things at every opportunity.
- Don’t just “say” you’re going to try something you’ve never done before; do it. (No, not that.)
- Don’t deprive yourself of small luxuries, and don’t feel guilty for indulging yourself a little.
- If you can help someone, do it.
- Be proactive, not reactive.
- Think before you act, look before you leap.
- Learn something new every single day.

Speaking of luck, what color is yours?

Your Lucky Underwear Is Red

You're confident and bold, and your lucky red underwear will only make you more sure of yourself.
You have a great zest for life, and you tend to take on impossible goals - and succeed.

When it comes to love, it's hard for you to take the time to open up. You're too busy conquering the world.
So if you're looking for a little more romance, put on your red underpants. And see where their passion takes you!

I sent the dog out last night to have a word with the squirrels. I don’t think she made much headway. I heard a whole lot of chittering going on, but no barking. Maybe I should send the Doberman next door instead. I think she could convey the message quite effectively without having to kneecap any of them.

Here's your small Twisted Linguistics fix for today.

privilage – A small, exclusive town of outhouses.

toe'd – A contraction, origin unknown, in frog language.

under my nemesis – An unholy sexual position that should never happen.

appologise – Strange behavior excused under the guise of apoplexy.
