When your cookie is empty

You should take that as a sign. Seriously, all in one day - my summer job offer was rescinded, my vehicle broke down, and most notably - I went to lunch with friends at the local chinese restaurant and at the end of the meal when we broke open our fortune cookies - mine was empty. Yup, that's right - no fortune in my cookie.  Based on how that day went for me, should you experience this particular phenomenon I suggest that you take it as a strong hint from the gods and go home, go to bed, and pull the covers over your head. 

Things did get better though.  I have my cart back and it's running, at least for now.  Tomorrow I have a go-see for another summer job, hopefully this one will pan out better than the last.  And over the weekend I had a chance to go out in the hills with a couple of friends. We had lunch at the airport cafe, saw lots of buffalo, and so much more!


I have many more photos than this, but I'm saving them for future posts. Trust me - you'll be glad I did!

I like to believe that when you get an empty fortune cookie it means that your future isn't written and you can make it be anything. Seems so much better than "Anger begins with folly, and ends with regret" or some such thing. ;)

Beentsy is on to something there, Kath!

A future not written sounds infinitely wider than a future already pre-destined, don't you think?

Oh. And you have buffalo on Avalon? That is so freak'n awesome. Looking forward to more pics, sistah!

that last bit with the empty cookie made me laugh so hard (on the inside.)

it seriously is a hint to just go home and snuggle in bed.

i hope your day re-starts better tomorrow.

Sometimes NO news is GOOD news!

Maybe it's time to try a different cookie?

I totally agree with beentsy! Your fortune is within YOU, not some stale cookie!

LOVE the buffalo photos! I haven't been into the interior of Catalina in years. Your photos brought back many fond memories!

That thing with the empty cookie happens to me a lot. It makes me nervous having no fortune!

But you got to see buffalo! I never get to see buffalo!!! I see lots of lobsters and seagulls. Never any buffalo...
