Fortune Cookies: 0 for 2

"A dark-haired woman will soon be giving you a gift."

"You have a charming way with words and should write a book."

I suspect one's not gonna happen, and there's no way the other's ever gonna happen.

UPDATE: Within a week of receiving these fortune cookies, a dark-haired woman gave me a gift because of my "charming way with words." And that is no joke.

Congrats! As to the "As I was saying" post:

1) Yes, the leftist media oligarchy WILL viciously attack Mr. Romney's religion IF he gets the Republican Nomination. While ignoring the fact that Harry (Cowboy Poetry Scarecrow) Reid shares that religion.

2) While individual Presbyterians and Episcopalians might be saved, those Churches can no longer be considered Christian.

Foam: Never had a fortune cookie play out quite like that. Maybe I should play the lottery numbers on the reverse, although I think I've tossed the paper by now.

Aunty: Thanks, but no thanks.

Moi: No worries. I could delete the comment, but leaving it up serves my purposes far better.

No, I meant, whoa . . . to the dark haired girl thing.

czar said...
