James, obviously, you will never read this, but I want to say thank you for your participation in this space and your contributions to it.  You made A|N BETTER, and that is no small thing.

Hey James, top o' the morning to you. Ran across an article on cliches I thought you'd enjoy. Mainly I thought you'd enjoy it because of this entry, remembering what you said earlier:

3. "No problem"

We're all striving to delight customers, right? So when you ask a server for your dressing on the side, does "No problem" make you feel delighted or like you're kind of a pain but the server is gracious enough to overlook it?

Your customers and employees feel the same way when you say "No problem" to their requests.

The entry on "with all due respect" is well worth checking out too.

Self-expression is individuality, and our individuality is our self, which ought to be our chief concern.

Thanks for the comments James.

Good to know about Osteen, the #1 Fraud in America today. Can we call Chopra #2? Pun intended.

James, in case you are interested in discussions on this topic:

Justice For All

Justice For All

Atheists have our own ideas about what is just and what is unjust.  This group will explore the elusive concept of justice.  Topics include racial injustice, death penalty, imprisonment, crime, and other aspects of justice in modern society and in history.  Without gods, what is the basis for justice?  What do humanists and others say about justice?  What do you think about current controversies and cases regarding justice or injustice?

I wanted to thank you. Your blog about the super bowl brought me to this wonderful site. Seriously, you have my gratitude.

Hi!  Thanks for the Friend Invite.  I haven't been ignoring you, or anyone else on purpose, I've just been chilling out with my cats and a stack of light fiction for a week or two.  I do that sometimes.

Hello fellow Texan! I agree with your discussion on Gov. Perry -- he is a very dangerous man.  I also enjoyed responding to your discussion on the matter.

>"...Does a transurrealist (and by the way, that is a great coined term!) shape shift or sing the hit song, "My heart belongs to Dada" or both?  ;-)..."

YES, we do to all of the above!  When I came back to my art (and the art and magick community) five years ago..I realized that I was not fitting in (I had to ditch the labels we used in the 70s, 80;s, like: "shamanic trance performance artist", etc.  I didn't know how to describe what I do so I came up with trans-surrealism...which basically means that:  "I am never coming down (from having been in the fringe culture for decades)...I am now lucid in this state of mind all the time (or clinically insane)...hence Trans-Surrealist!  I've Crossed the Abyss!
