Lj Birthday Baby...

Happy Birthday Nola!!!



(ps. posted early so you'll have it first thing in the morn)

Today is teaser's birthday… This woman has been a most valuable treasure in my life since the very day I met her… and it's been quite a while. She's kind, loving, smart, funny and really very much a product of the amazing country that she calls home.

She lives here. This is some kind'a serious "far away" live'en woman. She is a wife and she's a mom. These things auto-magically qualify her for a shimmer-cape and a spandex super suit… (I have this whole "Comet-Girl" motif in mind.)

Reading about her main squeeze and about Jason (her son) has been thought provoking and entertaining. Trying to understand her life as a prof at the University has been equally interesting…

In the time that I have had with her as my friend we have exchanged packages that contained treasures for the whole family… The children still ask to sit and play with the beautiful stones she sent… Just this Christmas we received this beautiful hand crafted ornament of a star… and I will hang it with fond memories every Christmas for the rest of my life.

Yea, I know this is all mush and sucky... but some things are really worth being all mushy and sucky about!!

I hope that this next year… this big-ass, goofy deal year you're turning fourty!! (and I will join you momentarily) is filled with self discovery and all the peace you can handle. You have earned this time and richly deserve it.

You will always be in my heart and your friendship will always be a treasure.

Happy Birthday sugar snaps… oh, and click over here for a big birthday wish from the boiz and I. :D

Happy Birthday to you... Happy Birthday to you... Happy Birthday dear Comet-Girl... Happy Birthday to you!

Ok, one way or another, today is going to be a fantastic day.... and that is saying a lot considering the foundations. I woke up late (not much... but enough that I'm all rushing around) and that thing in my throat is going on again (swollen uvula*), I have a nagging cough and my nose is doing a ol'faithful impression.

Both of my little goobs are sick... Geo is all horse (voice! no tail) although he seems to be on the mend, and now Ed is in full sick kid swing...

The day will be a great day, because I really want it to!!! I'm off to a meeting at my regular office first thing... which means I'll get to buy some crack** and some descent coffee. I have a huge bag of munchies to restalk my desk at my client office.... (fruit cups, granola bars, aples, and yes... *gasp* cheesies... the hard crinkly kind ... yum).

wearing
~ black ftl's and groovy sox.
~ pale green, kinda beige cuffed pants...
~ dark blue... almost black (my way of covering for the fact that I'm wearing it with pale green pants) turtle neck.
planning
~ meeting downtown, then back to my client site office and a couple of scheduled meetings there and plenty of visio and text layout in Corel WordPerfect... Why does anybody use this software? Besides peeps like me that are forced to?
wishing
~ as noted elsewhere - but worth repeating - I'm all about wishing a happy birthday to my pal in South Africa, teaser.
~ hoping for the gods of "it'll be ok soon" to attack dawnmarie who apparently had a nasty accident - hurt her leg (and I have not details) bad enough to warrant hospital time and family support. She's such a sweetheart... I hope she's ok.
~ oh,... and some good vibes out to my friend (and proly yours) wolfiegirl who needs warm tea and sleep...

Do you believe in magic...

in a young girls eyes...

We got those little magnetic word things stuck all over our fridge... I love them... every time I open the fridge my eyes light on the question "do you believe in magic?" You know you can't read that without sorta singing the tune right... I mean if your a second over 30...

I got crack and I am well pleased... a whole little bucket of fresh fresh fresh starbuck's crack...

Oh... I've been waffling about what to ask for for my birthday... besides the obvious desire for the friendships I have to hang in there... (mush time keeps sneaking up on me... must be the full moon) and besides the never ending desire to get a coupon that reads "Upon presentation of this coupon... my ass is your ass! Do with it as you will." no,... besides those default birthday gifts... it's been a toss up between a creative labs NOMAD II (64 meg MP3 player with a radio!!!) and a computer upgrade for my desktop at home... geez... even typing out 64 meg MP3 player and a radio makes me kinda drool... but I need to wipe that up and remind myself that I really fucking need a computer upgrade... well, do any of us ever actually need a computer upgrade? Whatever...

It's been a while so I just wanted to remind you ... I love you guys... your stories fill my world.... taking me to far away places and bringing me in touch with so many other feelings...

Now, I'm just saying (note: are you reading this? does anyone read this?) that the cycle is coming around again... bad vibes popping up in journals... people being punchy, some feeling punched... it's a full moon out there... and you need to feel the love... especially when you're holding someone by the throat and shaking them.... later skaters...

I could just about explode with disgust

Here is some info on the story about dawnmarie... and join me in praying for a merciful return to comfort and health.

If you've got the karma cycles... you can join me in a little teeth grinding as I recognize that I am Jacks fucking pissed off anger that some people get to walk through this world...

well...

Aside from feeling all crumm for a friend, today has really lived up to my expectations... :D

A good and a productive day... wohoo... look at me go.

Now it's time to go home to the land of the coughing kiddies... Geo has asthma and his coughing has gone on for years... treated - of course - with a puffer, it subsides... but he "knows" that he coughs a lot... and now this cold, deep chest cough thing is just bumming him hard. He came to me two nights ago in tears and quietly asked "when I am going to stop coughing?"... this breaks my heart... No worries.. he's on the mend and his asthma will be well cared for.. :D

Ed, on the other hand, is still just a wee bit of a guy and when he gets really sick, he just does not really understand why or what it all means.

So doctor mom and doctor dad tonight... maybe the good doctors will watch a movie tonight... :D, we'll see.

Peace out mis buenos amigos... fill you're life with love... what exactly is the downside?

when they look back...
they wont remember that the house was clean.
However, they will remember playing together.
