3. TODAY IN MY LIFE
I return to the Weekend Job today with some reluctance after the "Saturday incident". Of course I deal with hundreds of people every shift without any problem, but it only takes one asshole to upset my applecart.
Usually with Weekend Job assholes, you only ever see them once - after that they avoid you or the whole place altogether. There was one who showed up twice but after I "bit back" on the second time, she also vanished. Another one showed up after a gap of a couple of years - oh yes I remember them! All the assholes and in fact everyone who has ever given me grief in my entire life are burned into my memory!
I see no point in denying this trait of bearing grudges for life, so long as I have an effective coping strategy (which partly includes venting on blogs!). This I have, but the ultimate answer is of course to raise the performance of my Practice so that I don't NEED the Weekend job at all. That I'm working on.

7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!
The second-most dangerous shark in the world, the tiger shark, is sometimes called the “garbage can of the sea” because it will eat anything, including animal carcasses, tin cans, car tires, and other garbage. One was even found having a chicken coop with the remains of bones and feathers inside its stomach.
9. ZEN WISDOM
Hope transforms pessimism into optimism. Hope is invincible. Hope changes everything. It changes winter into summer, darkness into dawn, descent into ascent, barrenness into creativity, agony into joy. Hope is the sun. It is light. It is passion. It is the fundamental force for life’s blossoming.
