Embellishing and exaggerating one’s humanitarian, educational, philanthropic achievements…

is NOT my cup of tea.

Figuratively or literally.

Let it be known that I DO think that Mr. Mortenson has done some excellent things.

ImageAbsolutely.

Oh, and this is tangential, but “Runaway Bride” is one of my favorite films EVER.  If you think it is a mindless chick flick, you are dead wrong!  There is so much thematic substance in it that can relate to everyone.  And I do mean everyone.  Plus it’s funny, clean, short, and has the cute and talented Ms. Julia Roberts!

But BACK TO YOU (Mr. Greg Mortenson)

(and this applies to everyone else too!)

and I wouldn’t be the person I am without her. Image

But MOST importantly, I wouldn’t have watched the movie without her.

PS.  I have thought a lot about this idea of  hobbies/interests (ie Natasha Bedingfield) getting in the way of REAL life.  Check it stat: 

PPS.  In the end, Jimmy Fallon’s character gets his act together, gets the girl, gets to the game, AND the Sox win the 2004 World Series.  Every once in a while, EVERYONE WINS!  Take that, Curse of Bambino!

PPPS.  If my guy ever wanted to read about sports while I blogged on my Mac computer, that wouldn’t be the end of the world…
