G'night lj... long weekend... long day.

I've felt better... but you know that pain in my face from the sinus thing... it's feeling a wee bit better... maybe I'm not infected... tomorrow will tell the tail.

"Try and get some sleep" he tells himself... "cause self?" "you gotta busy day tomorrow.".

Morn'en lj...


Holy muthu... it's freaking cold outside... no, I mean it's really freezing cold!!! Please let me find a door into summer....

I'm looking at headlines from today's paper, all the strike / counter strikes crap going on in Israel... Here's a little Byzantine history for you... back in the 12th century, when Innocence the 3rd was wearing the big dumb pope hat, the third inquisition was being waged. This "love my way or die by my sword" party was fought by the soldiers of Christendom motivated by nothing but greed - as opposed to any pious belief that the word of god needed spreading. History recounts that when the armies of god, led by Knights ostensibly on their "quests for the holy grail" (this was how their pilgrimages to the holy land were described - all knights existed to make this quest), they encountered the Arab world. What they found there was, unquestionably, a "superior culture and a more advanced civilization."*
Bottom line: A lot changes in 800 years...

LJ birthday babies...

Happy Birthday starlazdaze



Yea, I'm late again... her b-day was yesterday... This young woman attracted my attention a year or so ago with her very beautifully crafted prose... Words that light fires and kindle your imagination. She's a smart girl... a pretty girl... she should be the subject of A BNL song.

Once... when the chips were down for me in a rather significant and almost game-over Lj drama this girl (whose name I know, but I think I'm not supposed to say it... so blah, lets say "R" for short), stepped up to the plate with some personal emails that really made a dif. It felt very good to realize that almost strangers could so genuinely give a care...

I hope you have a wonderful year sweets... you are a star, and I will always remember you... Although it's been a long time since I've seen you on your cam!! :D

Happy Birthday to you... Happy Birthday to you... Happy Birthday dear "R"..., Happy Birthday to you!

More Lj Birthday babies...

Happy Birthday dawnmarie



Do you know the fishbowl girl? It's funny when you think about where people are in the world and what preconceptions you have about people from those places... and - of course - the more you get to know people... the more completely you realize that we are all very much the same. Who is Dawnmarie? She's just this girl. Oh sure... she's beautiful and all that (all that and a bag of chips). What really sets her apart is that she has long ago embraced the notion of how much a part of life "fun" should be. We could all learn a lot from that... from her.

I hope you have a wonderful birthday dm... may your wish lists all be drained!. I especially hope this next year brings you some closure to the events that haunt you. Peace in your world ... peace in your heart... adn I look forward to some fish bowl girl cam.

Happy Birthday to you... Happy Birthday to you... Happy Birthday dear DawnMarie, Happy Birthday to you!

and lastly (LJ birthday wishes...)

Happy Birthday kea



Katie and her main squeeze, Jason, made a big dent in the fabric of the universe a month ago… they had their little girl Brianna… a little 8 ½ lb wonder bun full of "feed me" and "love me" vibes…

Katie is a very happy mommy… and it's her birthday.

I hope this next year brings you all the joy that you can handle… and besides the general lack of sleep that you're prol'y dealing with… I'll bet this wish comes true in spades. Have a wonderful time with Brianna and make sure you let daddy J feed that little girl as soon as he can… YOU will not regret it.

Happy Birthday to you... Happy Birthday to you... Happy Birthday dear Katie, Happy Birthday to you!

ok...

I'm artfully ignoring the little ouchi pain in the gland on the right side of my thoat... I know I know... I'm a fucking steaming sess pool of sickness... shit.

However, I am about to take the sage advice of many friends and go "irrigate" my face... I don't have a neti pot but I will pour some warm, salty water into my nose... eeee gods... just thinking of doing this is giving me the heebi-jeebies...

I'll let ya know how it turns out...

ps. I didn't get to go to the doc's tonight...
Z had an appointment right after dinner so I'm going to continue to use the 'nasal spray' antibiotic that she was prescribed for her sinus infection a couple of weeks ago...
yea, I know, I'm self prescribing ...
but tough...
if your face felt like my face feels right now...
you'd do just about anything...
um, including pouring warm salty water up yer schnozz...

See ya.

oh, and then it's X-Files that remained "unwatched" due to the lateness of last evening.
