"From this hour I ordain myself loos'd of limits and imaginary lines, going where I list, my own master total and absolute, Listening to others, considering well what they say, Pausing, searching, receiving, contemplating, Gently, but with undeniable will, divesting myself of the holds that would hold me."
Walt Whitman (1819-92)
"When I look back now over my life and call to mind what I might have had simply for taking and did not take, my heart is like to break."

Spam Title of the Day #13
Yeah, I know, I haven't been adding one daily, but it's got a nice ring to it, dontcha think?
Anyway, today's entry is:
B i g g e r S h o p p e r s N e e d e d!
Now, perhaps I should explain here. To refer to me as "bigger" is not necessarily a good thing. I happen to be, shall we say, more "insulated" than is normally considered healthy. Not that I am grossly overweight, but I am in Weight Watchers.
Yesterday I went into the local Food Lion grocery to pick up a couple of things, and I used their store discount card to get the "VIP Savings." When you do that, their register automatically prints out coupons for your next visit, coupons that it has determined are of interest to you.
I was buying some sausage, some canned vegetables, and some ice cream.
I got a coupon for cat food (I do have a cat) and three, count 'em three, coupons for weight loss products.
And now I'm getting spam for "Bigger Shoppers."
Next thing you know, I'll have to get a mouse designed for "portly men."
