Elbert Hubbard said in his obituary to a midget actor named Marshall P. Wilder, "He picked up the lemons that Fate had sent him and started a lemonade-stand." That somehow evolved into the phrase, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. And yes, lemonade is a fun beverage to enjoy. I'd rather drink actual iced tea instead of Long Island Iced Tea. Some people would be drawn to drink Long Island Iced Tea in an attempt to cope with a traumatic experience, but I would never go that far because I would still prefer regular iced tea. Still, nothing beats a iced cold glass of lemonade when relaxing after a long and rewarding day of labor.
And as I'm lost in thought on a freezing cold Winter night, here are some photos of Saoirse Ronan.

It doesn't look as if an asteroid will strike the Earth and wipe out all life on Earth.  I doubt that a chosen few will need to be hidden in underground nuclear bomb shelter to be used as slaves for an Invincible Dictatorship.  And this alleged Invincible Dictatorship isn't nearly so invincible if it hasn't been established yet.  Look outside and see how calm today has been.  And tomorrow will be just as calm as today.  I'm afraid that the Gentle Reader is all worried about nothing serious in particular.  The preservation of gentle and peaceful normality should be looked as a positive step forward towards a brighter tomorrow.  The preservation of human life, no matter how much you disagree with your neighbors, is something to be delighted by.   We can still walk outside without a care in the world and that's a wonderful delight that we should enjoy for all it's worth.
And as I'm lost in thought while calm and cooperative while drinking bottled water in the suburbs, here are some photos of Jordana Brewster.
