"It's not like I "o-pah-ed" her plate"

This blog is dedicated to Kristin's broken movie plate, for which we are all sad is gone. I would like to take a moment to reflect on the plate, whom I will call "chipper." Let me take this time to provide a dramatic reading in honor of chipper. It is entitled:

"Miss Me, But Let Me Go"

When I come to the end of the road,
and the sun has set for me.
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room.
Why cry for a plate set free?
Miss me a little—but not too long,
and not with your head bowed low.
Remember the food I allowed you to share.
Miss me, but let me go.

For this is a journey we all must take, and each must go alone.
It’s all a part of the potter's plan, a step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart, go to the friends we know.
Bear your sorrow in good deeds (and baked goods for Kristi). Miss me, but let me go.

Let us all remember chipper and the good deeds he used to perform. Remember the snacks, the salads, sandwiches, egg toast, and stolen bagels he used to gently hold. Remember chipper, but let him go.

Peace be with you in this time of mourning.

That was beautiful. I think you have found your new calling in life: Plate Eugugalizer. I sadly must now go work on an art history assignment. I want a coke so bad, but my stomach is KILLING ME, so i don't think a diet coke would help the situation. Ok. Have a wonderful day. Thank you for paying your respects to the plate. I feel awful :(

Hey dude, thanks for the cracker barrel and gay cowboy-filled evening. I was a lotta fun, despite the "interesting" movie. Still thinking about it. "Blackbird singing in the dead of night...". Great story about the plate and bagel stealing, wish I could have been there. T-minus 57 hours till the next Jack Baur power hour!!!
