Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

And The Universe Is Telling Me

In Facebook today, the stars say:

Daily Horoscope: Pisces Joel,
If you love something, let it go. If it comes back, it is yours. There are some things you just cannot change, no matter how hard you try. It is time to admit this to yourself and move on.

And the cards say:

Tarot: The Hanged Man
The Hanged Man is the most enigmatic card of the Tarot. Even Tarot giants like Waite, Crowley and Levi had trouble deciphering The Hanged Man’s true meaning. Generally, The Hanged Man is thought to represent the value of surrender and selfless acts. The Hanged Man embodies the notion that sometimes to lose is to win. Unlike the aggressive Chariot, The Hanged Man creates his fate through inaction and accepts his fortune passively, without resistance. He does not struggle to control the path his life takes, but rather allows events to sweep him where they will, even if he is called upon to sacrifice himself. He is so at ease with the Fate the Universe chose for him that even hanging upside down from a tree does not ruffle him.

And I am telling you: I’m ___(?)____. Yang Facebook talaga, o!

@EPONINE: Maybe the reason why you didn't understand my post is because you have no Facebook, or no Tarot Card application in it. But that's beside the point re. your question: no, I don't know how to read tarot cards. I was just quoting what was in my Facebook for that day. :-)
