Kermit: Well, you see, I'm not a sailor, I'm a frog.
El Sleezo Patron: Oh, cut the small talk and buy me a drink.
Kermit: I don't even know you.
El Sleezo Tough: Hey. Did you make a move with my girl?
Kermit: No, sir.
El Sleezo Patron: He did too. He touched me.
El Sleezo Tough: Ugh. Wash up, you'll get warts.
Kermit: That's a myth.
El Sleezo Tough: Yeah, but she's my "myth"!
Kermit: No, no, myth, myth!
That's the best myth joke there is. Muppets, so funny.
Team Blankenship just finished up the 3-disc Bill Moyers interview with Joseph Campbell, "Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth." Six hour-long segments each with a different theme, but the overall theme being that myths (including religions) are a manifestation of the life energy that is in all of us, that we're seeking a way to explain what can't be explained... The old Everything is One schtick. When he's talking about these things---the hero myth, creation stories, sacrifice and bliss, romantic love, eternity--it all seems to make sense. And of course when he talked about following your bliss, I was locked in. He says,
And I really feel that has been happening in my life lately. I've met some random, multi-talented people who not only have the potential to help this come together for me, but they are just plain nice people. Friends. The more energy I put into it, the more I get out of it. If I make a point to invest in it, it will work. Saturday market here I come.
And I can't do anything nearly as well without Keith. He's Research &Development. I'm The Closer. He's also a super awesome ok cheerleader. See:
Drugs help, too.

This week I turned 28. My 28th year was by far the hardest yet and at times I didn't know if I would make it. I learned a lot about myself, and I accepted some things about my role in the universe, plus I have a great husband who was the only rational person here for a while. I am very lucky.
Keith was 28 when we met, so what advice does he have for a 28 year old?
Tonight is another installation of the Midnight Movie. This week is The Big Lebowski!
