Back home for thanksgiving until tomorrow, and I brought a college friend up with me. We went to SF today to meet up with our two friends also from college. We had dinner in Chinatown, and I got this fortune:

"You are always surrounded by true friends."

And I was like "AWWWWWWWWWW GUYS!"

It was sweet, mainly because they are some of my closest friends.

An it harm none, do what you will.

ok, that's not really a fortune cookie fortune, but a very important rule in the Craft. But it's a great thing to go by nonetheless even if it isn't a fortune.

i always add "in bed" to the end of my fortunes... it can be mighty funny sometimes.

Ever see that Upright Citizens Brigade bit with the fortune cookies?

Weirdest fortune I ever got was "You would make a great lawyer"

I got one that disturbed me yesterday.
"You laugh now. Wait till you get home"

What the hell does THAT mean, lol! I didn't keep it. I wish I had now that I think about it.

This thread reminds me about the NYT article about the slightly less optomistic but more realistic fortunes that they had stop making some of because people complained:

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/08/business/smallbusiness/08fortune.html?_r=1&oref=slogin

ex. "Your problem just got bigger, think what have you done?" ; "Today is a disastrous day, if you can't beat them, join them..." and my favorite: "It's over your head now.  Time to get professional help."

I don't remember the exact wording, but evidently I have someone "admiring (me) from afar".

And the one I had before that was empty. I guess my future is bleak.
