"Going UP, coming Down"

 From the desk of Dr. CHERi Love  *Hugz Cheri

Things To Do In An Elevator

1.  Make race car noises when anyone gets on or off.

2.  Grimace painfully while smacking your forehead and muttering: "Shut up, all of you- just shut UP!"

3.  Whistle the first seven notes of "It's a Small World" incessantly.

4.  Sell Girl Scout cookies.

5.  On a long ride, sway side to side at the natural frequency of the elevator.

6.  Crack open your briefcase or purse, and while peering inside ask: "Got enough air in there?"

7.  Offer name tags to everyone getting on the elevator. Wear yours upside down.

8.  Stand silent and motionless in the corner, facing the wall, without getting off.

9.  When arriving at your floor, grunt and strain to yank the doors open, then act embarrassed when they open by themselves.

10. Greet everyone getting on the elevator with a warm handshake and ask them to call you Admiral.

11. On the highest floor, hold the door open and demand that it stay open until you hear the penny you dropped down the shaft go "plink" at the bottom.

12. Stare, grinning, at another passenger for a while, and then announce: "I've got new socks on!"

13. When at least 8 people have boarded, moan from the back: "Oh, not now -  motion sickness!"

14. Give religious tracts to each passenger.   (NOT A BAD IDEA)

15. Meow occassionally.

16. Bet the other passengers you can fit a quarter in your nose.

17. Frown and mutter "gotta go, gotta go" then sigh and say "oops!"

18. Sing "Mary Had a Little Lamb" while continually pushing buttons.

19. Holler "Chutes away!" whenever the elevator descends.

20. Walk on with a cooler that says "human head" on the side.

21. Stare at another passenger for a while, then announce "You're one of THEM!" and move to the far corner of the elevator.

22. Leave a box between the doors.

23. Ask each passenger getting on if you can push the button for them.

24. Wear a puppet on your hand and talk to other passengers "through" it.

25. Start a sing-along.

26. Play the harmonica.

27. Shadow box.

28. Say "Ding!" at each floor.

29. Say: "I wonder what all these do...." and push the red buttons.

30. Listen to the elevator walls with a stethoscope.

31. Draw a little square on the floor with chalk and announce to the other passengers that this is your "personal space."

32. Stare at each passenger, then announce in a demonic voice: "I must find a more suitable host body."

33. Carry a blanket and clutch it protectively.

34. Make explosion noises when anyone presses a button.

35. Wear "X-Ray Specs" and leer suggestively at other passengers.

36. Stare at your thumb and say "I think it's getting larger."

37. If anyone brushes against you, recoil and holler "Bad touch!"

38. When in a crowded elevator, announce loudly: "So, I  suppose you're wondering why I've called you all here together."

Hello and remembering you at the beginning of another year!

I haven't really met you
But I know you are there

I met you in a place known as Activeworlds
There, you said Hello
And from that simple hello
We became more than simple chatters

We became friends

Though distance separate us
I know you exist
Though we haven't seen each others' faces
I know there's beauty in you

For you have been God's Gift to me
And your beauty shows in the kindness you give

Your presence in the web delight me
We've talked about so many things
We ourselves can never tell those around us
We share secrets, We've shown concern
We understand, emphatize situations
And counsel one another

Time will someday come when you will take another road
And I will journey on
A time when you will be with the company of others
&And I will be far from you

Yet, looking ahead, I will glance back and remember
Once in my life, you came
You came and touched my life
And I will be forever grateful

Thanks to a simple hello, I met you, And for Now, that is all that matters.
