Made glorious summer!

This day's been like a metaphor for the year, a mix of good and bad. But I got a wonderful rat puppet (thank you mrbear2day!) and internet came back. So I guess I've finished out in front. ^_^ We've yet to see how the year will turn out (even almost finished, it has some big challenges ahead) but it gives me cause to be hopeful.

Big challenges can lead to big payoffs! Best of luck!

Can we see a pic of the rat puppet? There are so few of them out there, I'm always curious to see new ones! :)

I have three fortune-cookie notes stuck to my monitor at work from a local Chinese restaurant, and they all seem to fit for how this year has been going... Somehow every time I go to that restaurant with co-workers, I get these negative and ominous fortunes.

- Avoid taking unnecessary gambles.
- When things are going well, think about the danger around the corner.
- You will be successful ...someday.

The last one I added the "...", since "someday" is on a second line of text all by itself and it just reads that way to me (I feel like I'll never get out of my current "temporary" assignment.) I've become such a pessimist over the course of 2008 :P

I'll see what I can do. Though it's not really necessary. You only need to look up Mr Rat from the Mr Bear Today Show. I was quite taken aback when I found out he was one of the official replacements for Mr Rat.

Maybe we rats should collectively demand a better 2009 to make up for the Year of the Rat? It started with such great expectations and ended up a bleak house.

Yes, we should rise up and demand a better 2009! Maybe the time for the rodent revolution is at hand... ;) (Raccoons everywhere beware!)
