After my over-indulgent post on all things chocolate yesterday; today, I indulge you in a smorgasbord of all things random. Thanks to Amanda @ Running with Spoons, Thursdays are reserved for Thinking Out Loud…
• I believe us peeps are good, honest folks (for the most part)! And even though I don’t quite understand what the gentleman conducting this survey says – the peoples actions are enough to decipher what’s going on:
• I came across this story about a homeless gentleman who claimed a spot on a street. One day however, a lady who drove by him everyday, noticed him throw down his sign and run into the middle of the street; seeing a car driving diagonally towards oncoming traffic on the other side of the median, the lady realized this homeless gentleman was trying to get traffic to stop, before the car came plummeting through 4 lanes! Fortunately, due to the gentleman’s actions, everyone had stopped and helped get the out of control car to stop before hitting a nearby office building.
“Here is a man who most likely spends every day getting ignored by people who are trying not to make eye contact with him so that they don’t feel bad not giving him money. Yet he didn’t even hesitate to risk his life to save this lady and at least 20 others who would have crashed into her. He didn’t expect anything from her and he was back on his corner the next day holding up his sign like nothing had happened…(saying)..that he thought he could help, so he did.”
• My sister used to live in NYC, and when we used to visit I used to love the subway stations and tunnels – there were so many talented artists, musicians, actors and magicians in the tunnels and trains! I came across this video of an amazing 3-man band, rocking Union Square!
• I am a huge fan of dogs…(is it co-incidence what dog spelled backwards is)…I have 2 rescues, they are both incredibly protective of my daughter – and can spot trouble -in human form- from miles away. When one of us isn’t home, they mope around till we are both around them at the same time – so dog stories have a special place in my heart!
“A 12 year-old German Shepherd named Tommy goes to Mass nearly every day and sits patiently by the altar in the small town of San Donaci near Brindisi, Italy.
He goes there out of love, he is just waiting for his master whose funeral was held here. Tommy is there every day and waits patiently through all of the church services, keeping a silent watch and waiting for her. The loyalty and love dogs possess is unlike anything else in the universe.”
• After having read all 3 Veronica Roth books, and being a little vary of the actors and movie living upto the book’s characters & plot, my daughter and I went to see Divergent. And am not sure if it was the chairs or the actual movie, but we had a blast!
Happy, Happy Thursday Yall!
Would you rather read a book or watch the movie (based on the book)?
