We believe that everyone should believe in something

Hi folks, LAS again. I figured I would put up this post over here that I posted on my own blog - since no one has posted yet today. Please keep Nina in your thoughts and prayers today (and have a drink for her!!).

So my cousin found this little thing that we wrote when we were 14 called "We Believe." We attempted to write down the things that we believed in at that age - some of these are from advertisements that we had hanging on our walls - others of them, I am honestly not sure where they came from. We made them up I guess. I remember when we wrote this. It won't be as funny to all of you, but when my cousin and I read it now, 17 years later, we were pretty much rolling on the floor laughing. So have a laugh if you want to - these are the things we thought believed in at 14.

I know - I'm sorry so Nina about everything you have been through. I would be horrified to know what a list would look like now if I wrote a list, it would be, uh, let's just say, not the same as when I was 14 and didn't know that everything was going to go wrong. I'll be thinking about you!
