Know your limits, people.

At the casino the other day, I saw a woman win almost $800 at the roulette wheel.  And she didn't even crack a smile.  Can you imagine how far down you must be for $800 to not seem like a big win?

Don't get me wrong, I can (and do!) spend hours at the roulette wheel.  But I never let myself lose so much that I can't appreciate a win.

Know when to stop before you start, people!

I have had dreams in my life the memories of which are more real than any moment of my waking life.  I can summon, with perfect clarity, things I experienced in a dream decades ago.  So I totally, completely, unequivocally get what Christopher Nolan is saying with Inception.  

I had the good fortune to attend an advance screening tonight and all I want to tell you is that you should go.  See it before you read all about it.  Don't let reviewers spoil the ride for you.
