Inspire: "You always a smartass? Nope. Sometimes I'm asleep."

I happily finished a swap this weekend.  It was based on Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden series.  Dresden is a wise-ass wizard with a listing in the phone book.
Why is Harry my inspiration for the week?  Because he does what he needs to do and gets it done.  He could be hiding away, soaking up the magic and power but instead he lives (well, lived) in a one room basement apartment that had once been invaded by zombies.  He's had more than enough offers to go to the dark side, but he stands his ground and remembers his morals. 

Although it seems like he cracks more wise-ass pop culture references than Buffy sometimes, he's a good guy.  Sometimes we need that to remind us of where we stand.  Plus, I need a reminder to stop being so serious all the time!

"Life is a journey. Time is a river. The door is ajar"
