Comic Fun & the Big D

Dave created some comics on this website that lets you make comic strips from a template, so I went to check it out and found a lot of interesting stuff. I couldn't find the one Dave made that I really liked, so I'm posting this one instead, entitled "I hate kulaks" by Joseph Stalin. I was hoping for some witty historical commentary, but hey, what are you gonna do.

Then my coworker e-mailed me this link, which takes you to a jukebox that tells you what the #1 song on the pop charts was on the day you were born, giving you your life's theme. Mine was "I love rock 'n' roll" by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, which is an OK song, but hardly my life's theme; Dave's was "Physical" by Olivia Newton-John. If I had to take one over the other, I've got to go with mine.

If you're reading this, post and tell me what your song was!

In other news, I just heard from a former coworker who gave me news of her impending divorce. It's very strange for me, because this is really the first couple I know personally (not a relative) who has gotten a divorce, and she's really not that much older than me.

I feel for her, and it's also very frightening, because it is now hitting home for me more than ever that divorce can (and will) happen to anyone. Another older coworker of mine told me that, of all my friends that are getting married right now, half of them are likely to get divorced, statistically speaking. That's quite a morbid thought, especially since most of them have wed so recently, or haven't yet at all. Plus, all my married friends seem very happy — at least to my knowledge.

Everyone, I'm sure, thinks they're immune - no one gets married thinking they might split up eventually, or everyone would have pre-nups. However, I do trust Dave completely, and it's my personal opinion that we were completely made for each other, if such a thing can be possible. I cannot imagine a life where he was not there, every day, waking up next to me.

well, you know my song- walk like an egyptian

i just read last week in psychology why people think that their marriages will last and they will beat the statistic- people tend to put way too much faith into their own judgments, and also, people have a general tendency to think all the bad things just happen to "other people" and never to them.

i vehemently agree that you and dave were made for each other ;)

My song is "Don’t You Want Me" by Human League??? I don't think I've heard that one.
