5. In a few billion years our sun will be dead and earth a nothing. Don't sweat the small stuff and

 

it's all small stuff.

As Max Ehrmann so beautifully wrote:

Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be critical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy.

8. so am I - I suppose I'll have another shot of Jack Daniels to calm my nerves

This could be a great game changer - it could have little affect and to be honest it is possible that it could not go well. But I had a bad feeling about the first debate last week - I have a better - much better feeling this time. I'll see how accurate my vibes are this time.

14. I'm nervous too

I was feeling pretty cocky last week... but as someone just said on MSNBC (Chuck Todd? I can't remember now), Romney had a plan to lie instead of debate and Obama just came for a debate. (I'm paraphrasing but I think that was the gist of it.)

This time, there's the history of Ryan's whoppers at the RNC as well as Romney's lies from last week. So Joe will be ready. (Funny how I would never refer to the President as Barack but calling the Vice President Joe just comes naturally... but he's such a Joe, you know? )
