it’s 8-8-8

ain’t it great?

so this is quite the auspicious day.  china is getting ready to bomb us as we speak. errr i mean, they are getting ready to start the olympics.  yeah, that’s what i meant.

8 is a lucky number in some cultures.  it is the sign of infinity sorta – if you’re like high and/or currently horizontal.  it is also the number beyond the perfect number, aka 7.  i dont know who decided 7 was perfect, but someone did. and i’m sure one of you will know why. so i’m not gonna bother researching it. so in theory, 8 is beyond “time” (such as 7 days in a week) and thus the symbol similar to infinity.  also, 8 is an octave in music and therefore the completion of a pattern.  some equate 8 with balance and structure which is reflected in the symbol itself.

i am on the verge of blowing my own mind.

anyway, so if something terrible happens, let me just say that i love you all and i miss you and if we ever get attacked by zombies, and you turn, i’m gonna have to blow your head off. but i still love you.

and to CC the birthday boy… love you miss you!! xoxo
