It's Spring! It's Spring! The Bird is on the Wing!

Absurd! Absurd! The Wing is on the Bird!

Tee hee! I read that a loonnnng time ago in an olllld Dennis the Menace comic book, and it always stuck with me.

But anyway, it's now officially Spring! Yahoo!

And I'm up this week, but only a little (+0.2, total 186). Not too bad, considering all the Italian food I've been scarfing down this week.

Hey - when your employer is economizing on catering, and then one day, out of the blue, you're told that there's leftover Italian food in the break room - well, what could I do? I'm only human! (nyuk nyuk!)

Anyway, I'm wrestling with a moral dilemma, so perhaps someone reading this has had a similar situation and can give me some advice.

I got an "email chain letter" which reads as follows:

I am supposed to pick 12 women (who have touched my life) and who I think would want to participate. I think that if this group of women were ever to be in a room together, there is nothing that would be impossible. I hope I chose the right twelve. Please send this back to me (You'll see why). In case anyone is not aware, Saint Theresa is known as the Saint of the Little Ways. Meaning she believed in doing the little things in life well and with great love. She is also the patron Saint of flower growers and florists. She is represented by roses.

REMEMBER to make a wish before you read the prayer. That's all you have to do. There is nothing attached. Just send this to twelve people and let me know what happens on the fourth day. Sorry you have to forward the message, but try not to break this, please .. Prayer is one of the best free gifts we receive. Did you make a wish yet? If you don't make a wish, it won't come true. This is your last chance to make a wish!

St. Theresa's Prayer:
May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.

Now, send this to 12 women within the next 5 minutes. And remember to send this back. I count as'll see why. Suggestion: copy and paste rather than forwarding.

Now normally, when I receive something like this, I just hit "delete" as fast as my little fingers can pound. But here's where the "moral dilemma" part comes in:

It's from my boss.


So what would you do? I'm gonna set up a poll - please vote within the next 5 minutes or your wish won't come true! (Nyuk nyuk!)
