A Little Wonderment For Tuesday

Normally I find inspirational posters and videos and cross-stitch thingies completely annoying. Especially that one with a kitten clinging desperately to a branch that says, "Hang in there!" That one makes me gag and want to hit things repeatedly with a crowbar. I mean, for God's sake WON'T SOMEBODY PLEASE SAVE THAT LITTLE KITTEN FROM DYING.

This video, however, is a different story because it's COOL! I mean, yeah, you can totally ignore the last 20 seconds where they gently lecture you that if you have not failed you've never really lived - because honestly, I'd prefer to believe that I will encounter nothing but uproarious success in my life, over and over and over again. But all the stuff they tell you as the build-up to that? WOW. I mean, really. Who knew? Now if you'll excuse me, I've got to go write that novel I'm always saying I'll write one day.

Who are all of those people that they mentioned? The guy on the penny looked familiar...

I really wanted to leave a snarky, smartass comment. The whole life=risk thing got me.

After being told that the chances of me being able to carry another child (after Aiden) successfully to full term were anywhere from 5-15%.....

Mind you, I didn't get pregnant with Isaac on purpose, and I was terrified the entire time.
