How do you send off someone with a wish for something truly great, catastrophic, deserving, and/or otherwise to happen to them? What are your go to words and phrases for such send offs?
Wouldn’t that be the ultimate Olympics story? If somehow between now and then, North and South Korea could get their act together, likely with help with other nations, to be unified. That way, there wouldn’t be a spectre of a North Korea over the Olympics all the time.
Of course, lots of people would say that’s a ridiculous dream, but how many Olympic dreams are ridiculous when they begin? If there’s one the thing Olympics should do, it should encourage you to dream bigger. If you can’t imagine something happening, then get a bigger imagination.
There’ll also be those who say Korean unification isn’t an Olympic dream, but dreams to me, are dreams. We’ve seen more remarkable change in our life time with the reunification of Germany, disbanding of others for independence where there should be with people of their own identities.
So why not a Winter Olympics in 2018 in one unified Korea?
In Pyeongchang, Korea.
The Walt Disney Co. recently bought Lucasfilms from George Lucas for $4.05 billion (Yahoo! as in the site of the article, not my reaction). Some people were thrilled since they’ve been lambasting George Lucas for everything he’s done post the original Star Wars Trilogy. Others thought there was a great disturbance in the force.
We’ll have to see how it’ll all turn out with time, but I can tell you the first good thing that has come of the transaction is the Disney-Star Wars mash-ups immediately found in the Twitterverse (#DisneyStarWars hash tag) and other places.
Some of the best ones I’ve seen are below, but I want to hear more so if you’ve heard of others, or came up with one of your own, please do share by leaving a comment! Continue reading
On Facebook, you can opt to have your birthday show up as a notification on your Facebook friends’ Home Page on the day it is your birthday. Most people then just usually write something short, and frankly, a little meaningless from how generic it often is.
The person whose birthday it is, then, gets like a ton of notifications of these greetings. They may or may not go through them all, as most are the same old plain “Happy birthday!” variation. But what do you expect of mostly shallow “friendships” that come with most of most people’s Facebook “friends”?
However, some people go through all the comments so they don’t miss something they may want to respond to, or should acknowledge to avoid embarrassment of not having read it when someone took the time to write it… and asks about it later.
What I’m proposing is that if you want to be a little more genuine, and break the person’s routine scroll through all the relatively meaningless wishes a bit, add a little song link, like from YouTube. A lot of songs can be found there.
