04:13 pm: I heard a story the other day that I really liked. A man went to visit an older man who was knowing in the town for his wisdom. There were many problems in his life, and he was looking for some sense of understanding and enlightenment as to why things were the way they were. Entering the wise man's house, he was invited to sit, and asked if he would like a cup of tea. The man agreed that he would, and the wise man sat a cup on the table and began to pour. Soon, the cup was overflowing, but he continued to pour. The tea ran across the table, and finally the man intervened. "You're spilling it. The cup is full, what are you doing?"

"Exactly," the wise man answered. "The cup can hold no more. Anything extra that I add, is a waste. And your mind is the same. It is full of your preconcieved notions, your ideas, your opinions, your expectations. Anything I add to it will overflow. Until you empty your cup, I can teach you nothing."

So I haven't talked to you in forever... I miss you.

But for the record, because I find this hilarious... Your sim got married to Alex Bedirian (lol remember him?), and you just gave birth to twins. Bwahahahaha.
