We're destined in the sky

Order! That's all I need. Order. I need a man like that, but he has to be a Geminian. ::lifts magnifying glass::

I've said before that I don't subscribe to any notion of "written in the stars", but I love this Free Will Astrology guy, Rob Brezsny, anyway. Here's mine for this week:
It's a scary responsibility to give people astrological advice. What if I suggested that you call in sick (even though you're not sick) so you could wander off into the Great Unknown in quest of close encounters with mind-blowing teachings? And what if in the course of following my suggestion you learned so many lessons about how to permanently expand your frontiers that you then decided to burn down a bridge to nowhere and give away most of your emotional baggage and live in greater devotion to your soul's radically simple needs? Could I then get sued by someone in your life who really doesn't want you to escape your traps?
If you've been around here much, you understand the appeal.

I kind of do that food thing. I'm not OCD about it, but I often tend to eat all of the same item before moving on to the next thing. There's no special order though, although I do sometimes leave the yummiest thing 'til last.

Am I Monk now?

I really like to save the best bits for last. I want the ANAGI to stay in my mouth a while. I'm not sure if it's delayed gratification or some kind of penance. Pain/Pleasure...opposite sides of the same coin, aren't they?

That Gemini man thing is a takeoff on Little Edie Beale's horoscope readings from "Grey Gardens".
