You are The Devil
Materiality. Material Force. Material temptation; sometimes obsession
The Devil is often a great card for business success; hard work and ambition.
Perhaps the most misunderstood of all the major arcana, the Devil is not really "Satan" at all, but Pan the half-goat nature god and/or Dionysius. These are gods of pleasure and abandon, of wild behavior and unbridled desires. This is a card about ambitions; it is also synonymous with temptation and addiction. On the flip side, however, the card can be a warning to someone who is too restrained, someone who never allows themselves to get passionate or messy or wild - or ambitious. This, too, is a form of enslavement. As a person, the Devil can stand for a man of money or erotic power, aggressive, controlling, or just persuasive. This is not to say a bad man, but certainly a powerful man who is hard to resist. The important thing is to remember that any chain is freely worn. In most cases, you are enslaved only because you allow it.

I know its kinda Korny, but its' true. What can I say? She's one of a kind. A one in a million.
When infatuated, we are thrilled, but not happy, wanting to trust, yet suspicious. There are lingering, nagging doubts about our “partner in infatuation” and their love for us. We’re miserable when they’re away, almost like we’re not complete unless we’re with them. It’s a rush and it’s intense. It’s difficult to concentrate. And most infatuation relationships have a high degree of sexual charge around them. Somehow being with them is not complete unless in ends in some type of sexual encounter.
Do any of these “symptoms” resemble feelings of love? Hardly. So why do we become infatuated? Where does it come from? Perhaps it’s biological.
When infatuated we experience a surge of dopamine that rushes through the brain causing us to feel good. Norepinephrine flows through the brain stimulating production of adrenaline (pounding heart). Phenylethalimine (found in chocolate) creates a feeling of bliss. Irrational romantic sentiments may be caused by oxytocin, a primary sexual arousal hormone that signals orgasm and feelings of emotional attachment. Together these chemicals sometimes override the brain activity that governs logic.
The body can build up tolerances to these chemicals so it takes more of the substance to get that special feeling of infatuation. People who jump from relationship to relationship may be craving the intoxicating effects of these substances and may be “infatuation junkies”.
When the chemical flood dries up, the relationship either moves into a loving romantic one or there is disillusionment, and the relationship ends.
Kings Sweep Barako With Ot Victory
Musong R. Castillo, Philippine Daily Inquirer, Monday, 28-Jul-2008
MANILA, Philippines—Facing what was supposed to be a dominated foe in a match that took a Game 7 atmosphere, Barangay Ginebra willed itself to come back from the brink of defeat and sweeten its sweep of Red Bull.
The Gin Kings rallied from six points down in the final 2:37 of regulation before making their first four shots in overtime to finally snuff the fight out of the Barako, 101-97, and reach the Smart PBA Fiesta Cup title series before close to 12,000 screaming souls at the Big Dome.
Mark Caguioa tossed in 33 markers and Chris Alexander had 13 points, 19 rebounds and a PBA career-high seven blocks in the epic contest Red Bull refused to surrender without a fight.
In fact, the Barako worked so hard to avert being the footnote in a record their coach last pulled off 16 years ago, leading 90-84 after a Cyrus Baguio basket with 2:37 left in regulation.
But the Kings came up with their vaunted finishing kick that has earned them to their adoring throng to forge the extra five minutes at 90-all.
"The outcome of the series (4-0) did not mean that it was easy for us," coach Jong Uichico, who will see action in his second title series with this team, said.
The sweep was the first such debacle for Yeng Guiao in a best-of-seven series since 1992 when he piloted Tony Harris and the Swift Mighty Meaties to a whitewash of the 7-Up Uncolas.
In the second game, Amal McCaskill scored on a turnaround jumper with 1.4 seconds remaining as Magnolia forged a 104-102 victory over Air21 to level their semifinal series at two games each.
Jay-Jay Helterbrand failed to give the Kings the win outright when he flubbed a running jumper inside the keyhole at the buzzer. But Junthy Valenzuela, Rafi Reavis, Caguioa and Paul Artadi combined to lift the Kings ahead to stay, 99-94 with 2:49 to play.
If only you knew, how my heart overflows with love for you. If only you could see the way you fill my hopes and dreams. You're the owner of my heart, the ruler supreme. Even in the dark of night, I've only to think about you to feel your loving light and from this world I drift feeling as if I'll never touch the ground again...If only you knew.
If only you could guess how I hear your voice when others speak; for you hold the key to my happiness, and it's always you my soul seeks. If only you could feel, how your very presence has the power to heal, all the wounds inside me. You've made me abandon the pain of yesterday, and you've shown me that the past can no longer stand in the way of what I hope to achieve...If only you knew.
If only you could realize the way you've shown me that it's better to give than to take, and whatever I do, I do for your sake. I'm willing to give you my all and expect nothing in return. But, oh how I yearn for you...if only you knew.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) just issued a medical alert about a highly contagious and potentially dangerous virus that can be transmitted orally, by hand, or even electronically. It is called Weary Overload Recreational Killer (WORK).
If you get WORK from your boss, or a colleague, or anyone else, DO NOT TOUCH IT. This virus can wipe out your entire personal life!
If you come into contact with WORK you should immediately leave the premises. Take two good friends to the nearest supermarket and purchase one or both of the two known antidotes: Work Isolating Neutralizer Extract (WINE) or Bothersome Employer Elimination Rebooter (BEER). Take the antidote repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system.
Share this alert with your circle of friends. If you do not have five friends, you have already been infected and WORK is controlling your life.
