What the ancients called a clever fighter is one who not only wins, but excels in winning with ease. Hence his victories bring him neither reputation for wisdom nor credit for courage. He wins his battles by making no mistakes. Making no mistakes is what establishes the certainty of victory, for it means conquering an enemy that is already defeated. Hence the skillful fighter puts himself into a position which makes defeat impossible, and does not miss the moment for defeating the enemy. Thus it is that in war the victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won, whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory.

Personal mood history for You currently feel crazy. (Feeling differently? Change it!)
You normally feel horny.

Geeeeez SO, I pop into imood to change my mood again, and out of boredom click on history... there it breaks down every mood you've used and how many times, and evidently it also tells you your current mood as well as what you've been most often. Ahem. So what does Cyn call me? A Horny Bitch, guess she's right? *g*

Anyway She's trying to explain this whole FF thing to me, I feel SO out of the loop and sheltered for once. "But Mom, everyone's doing it"

Its still Early for me, I'm still stumbling around blind, but now I'm stumbling around Proud. Cyn Sent this to me this morning...

Old Glory

I am the flag of the United States of America, my name is "Old Glory". I fly atop the world's tallest building, I stand watch in America's Halls of Justice.

I fly majestically over the great institutions of learning. I stand guard with the greatest military power in the world. Look up and see me. I stand for peace, honor, truth and justice...I stand for freedom.

I am confident, I am arrogant, I am proud. When I am flown with my fellow banners, my head is a little higher, my colors a little truer....I BOW TO NO ONE.

I am recognized all over the world. I am worshipped, I am saluted, I am respected, I am revered, I am loved and I AM FEARED.

I have fought in every battle of every war, for more than two hundred years....Gettysburg, Shilo, Appomattox, San Juan Hill, the trenches of France, the Argonne Forest, the beaches of Normandy, Guam, Okinawa, Korea, Vietnam, in the Persian Gulf and...a score of places, long forgotten..I was there.

I led my Armed Forces, I followed them, I watched over them, they love me. I was on a small hill in Iwo Jima, I was dirty, battle worn and tired...but the Marines cheered me on, and I was proud !

I have been soiled, burned, torn and trampled on the streets of countries that I helped set does not hurt,...for I am invincible.

But I shall overcome...for I am strong. I have slipped the bonds of earth and from my vantage point on the moon, I stand watch over the uncharted new frontiers of space.

I have been a silent witness to all of America's finest hours. But my finest hour comes when I am torn into strips, to be used as bandages for my wounded comrades on the field of battle, when I fly at half mast to honor my brave comrades,...when I lie in the trembling arms of a grieving mother, at the graveside of her fallen son or daughter.

I am proud...My name is "Old Glory"...long may I wave....

Dear God,...LONG MAY I WAVE.

*big breath* Well today was the MRI on my l shoulder/clavicle and I have finally finally discovered something I'm afraid of. Being burried alive. *shakes her head* I don't know if the unit they used for me was a children's unit or what... I am a tiny person, however I couldn't move an iota... Not an inch. I was packed in so tightly I swear I could have stuck my tongue out and touched the "ceiling" I could barely twitch my fingers and they had my injured shoulder wrenched in so tightly I still Ache. All in all a very bad unpleasant experience. I have never been claustrophic until now. I was terrified, petrified and damn near panicked several times, I couldn't open my eyes or the paranoia and panic set in. The one time I did open my eyes I damn near heaved everything in my stomach which of course only made the panic worse, because I knew if I heaved, I'd drown. Jesus A man, not to terrify anyone who has to have one done, but it was no place to put a Lyn. I came out dizzy disoriented frightened and hurting, definitely definitely not on my list of things to do twice. As for results I should get them Friday, Monday at the latest... I don't really expect them to find anything other than the same damage we've known all along was there, but I know he wants to be thorough.

Additionally he sent me to a different therapist and even uttered the words "maybe you should seek legal help" in reference to my original therapist.. Now I have just a lowly EMT background however I have this feeling that when your ROM ends up 20 points LESS than when you started... there might be a serious problem with the therapy. Heh. So anyway the new therapy starts tomorrow @1430 well its supposed to, if I'm still this sore they'll get a phonecall in the morninng postponing it until Friday. Doc's decided 3 times a week will do more harm than good on a sensitive still shifting area, so he's so far listed it as 2 times a week for 8 weeks...So we'll see what happens, I just don't want people cutting on me yanno? *smirk* Been there done that, would prefer not to do it again, so onto the next subject...

I got a letter from Bri yesterday and *drum roll please* Its set, the San Diego plans are a Go. Ohhhh Scary huh? Cyn Lyn Bryan and Brian all in the same town?! As if that isn't scary enough Chris and Frank are going to come visit too! Heh.... Party Up this is going to be a blast, God knows I need to get out of town. Additionally looks like if all goes well after its said and done, I should could would? be moving out there til Brian is done at 29 Palms.... Ooooooo, cheer with me now folks. Fun right? Can't wait.. believe you me, I can not wait.
