MONDAY NIGHT, March 31, 2008

Every heart has its secret sorrow, which the world knows not:
Oftentimes we call a man cold, when he is only sad. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
How the hell are ya? I'm off my soap box tonight, but just a quick followup on the "Nipple Ring" post. The woman is conferring with Gloria Allred, famed women's rights attorney in Los Angeles. OMG. Someone's gonna get it.
Had a rather nice day today. Pretty much non-eventful. I'm staying closer to home theses days what with the costs of gasoline. Up until recently, I allowed myself 2 - 3 tanks a week. Now I am budgeting for only one tank a week. Next will be cutting down on movies. However, today was $5.00 day at the Woodlands Market St. Cinemax so I drove over there. Saw "The Counterfeiters".
A pretty good movie, German with English Subtitles. Now when I first got sober I could not tolerate the subtitles. It was like watching tennis, the head went one way and maybe I got it all read, most times I did not. This was frustrating. About 7 years ago, I finally mastered subtitles. I did not do anything differently, just went to the movie, watched the action, read ALL the subtitles, and was able to enjoy the movie. Now in the previous 9 years I did not become any smarter, I did not become a faster reader. I have always been a good reader. I think that the main reason is that my mind works better now, I have a clearer head. I wonder if sobriety had anything to do with that. Hmmmmmmm. Just wondering.
Today I am grateful for:
God, My Higher Power.
My Sobriety. (More is revealed, and more is accepted)
Dolly, My Schnauzer. (always) She is just the cutest thing in the world.
My Sponsor, a kind loving man.
Enjoying a movie with subtitles.
That I can afford a $65.00 tank of gas and the bp did not soar.
Most times being able to find the humor in a situation.

Y'all be pretty now, ya heah.

I don't do well with subtitles. I focus on the words and not the action.
I once missed a shot of Adolph Hilter masturbating because I was watching him moan and groan (in the subtitles) rather than watching the action.

I know people who refuse to read subtitles... Now, you have me wondering wonder whether they are sober? Hm!?
