well its kinnda like a game but not really the basic idea is to tell everyone one good thing out of your day and one bad thing (rose=good thorn=bad) and i thought this would bve a nice way to talk about your day in a freindly way....
example

rose: my dads going to be gone a week

thorn: i have to spend a week alone with my room mate

i dont know this just seemed like a good idea to me....

edit: you can do this as many times as you want any time somthing good happens you can post it as a rose, but if you want to post a thorn you have to post a rose too (its kinnda made so you see the good in everything)

Thorn: I'm uber sick with a combination of a sinus infection, ear infection, and something similar to bronchitis and strep but not all at once (and therefore cannot enjoy the warmth of 50 or so degrees), am missing review for all my exams (since I am sick and staying home from school), have an exam this FRIDAY which is going to kill me, and I'm extreeemely tired. Also, I have quite a bit of catching-up to do. Yeah, uhm, today was evil. dry.gif

Crikey, hon...you didn't tell me that! Wisdom teeth removal sucks, but apparently I provided hours of fun for my mother and boyfriend. The doctors had said that I would be in extreme pain and would probably be crying, but they wheeled me out to the car and I was giggling like mad and I wouldn't stop speaking garbled French.

*hugs and kisses*
I hope you heal with little consequence...more over, I hope your jaw doesn't freeze on one or both sides...that really sucks. dry.gif

*hugs for everyone who has been having a rough go of it*
