Ain't it the truth?

Hallandoatbran, over at Two Scoops of Crazy (click the link over in my Other Journals), has a plan for making your own fortune cookie fortune.

He says:
Go into your AOL-J archives.
Find your 23rd post (or closest to).
Find the fifth sentence (or closest to).
Post the text of the sentence in your AOL-J along with these instructions

Now, I didn't really have any topic for in mind for journalling today, but I've been really good about daily updates, so thought I'd follow his lead and hunt down my fortune.

My 23rd entry is back in September, the first month I started journalling.  There were lots of entries there about the California recall election, and (one of my personal favorite early journal posts) a little chart of the Cassidy family tree.  (http://journals.aol.com/nzforme/Sothisisatreadmill/entries/68)  I figured my fortune would end up being some bizarrely out-of-context statement from one of these posts.  

Instead, as fate would have it, my fortune is something not only sensical, but also oddly fitting for the situation.  It reads:

"Basically, I hate falling behind."

Well I wish i could do this accurately, but since my journal is obliterated, the closest i could come up with is this:

"And guess what?  all you wonderful observers out there:  NO it has NOTHING to do with JC"

LOL!   Have no friggin idea what that's suppose to tell me!  

But I like yours much better!
