Cookie Inserts and Car Decals

I've got a handful of reader fortunes and not-a-fortunes to share today. Two fortunes, the first from my good friend Bea Dazzler (whose visit to Austin's Chinatown with yours truly is chronicled here):

"Those who seek will find." 
However, Bea Dazzler just informed me that she doesn't believe her fortunes unless her lucky number is included on the insert. She did not share what that number is and, judging by the negative tone in which this was conveyed I'm guessing said number wasn't there.

"You could prosper in the field of medicine."
Abbey, an Army wife and mom of three (check out her fun blog here), received this fortune from a Panda Express fortune cookie. Her response: "Uh, what?"

Three people shared their not-a-fortunes with me. My friend Matt received this:
"You cannot love life until you live the life you love."

Frequent contributor Blonde Birdie was none too happy upon breaking open her fortune cookie to find what she deemed a "super lame not-a-fortune":
"The best mirror is often a good friend."

And finally, a colleague of mine deemed this not-a-fortune a "fun play on words":
"Your greatest fortune is the large number of friends you have."

My Twitter friend Dani shared these printable fortune cookies with me. They look like a fun project!

From the You-Don't-See-That-Everyday File, Laurie saw a car decal that read, "In memory of Corey [last name]" and had a fortune cookie where you would typically see a cross (or something similar). Things like this spark my curiosity. Thanks for sharing, Laurie!

Thanks to all of my loyal readers and contributors. If you'd like to share a fortune, not-a-fortune, or a fun, interesting fortune cookie-related object you spot, you can comment here or on my Facebook page (see the FB badge on the sidebar on the right). You can also find me on Twitter (see the "About Me" section on the sidebar).

  1. I love the printable fortune cookies, but I'm not sure I understand what is meant by "Kind Over Matter." Is it kind because you're not eating anything? You're still using trees, which isn't "green" and therefore not the environmental idea of "kind." Do the letters form an acronym? KOMP . . . KOMPFC . . . Mmm, no.

    Am I simply over-thinking a meaningless pun? Survey says . . .
