Loved FireFly tonight... :) Then again, I always love FireFly.

~ played spades at there... did a dreadfully* small amount of work on the freehand tutorials.
~ oh, you know those plain donuts you get by the plastic box-full at the discount grocery store? The ones that ooooze oil when you zap 'em for a moment in the microwave? are they good or what? clearly a good reason to not discount deep friend fat next time they rewrite the Canada Food Guide.
~ I hope things are going well for debby in her pack/move/unpack zone...
~ and that all is well with katie8471... Are you timing those?

~ the wheel is turning towards the drama thing again... and yeah, i'm being all crystal ball on ya...
~ i'm telling you it's like a wave pattern across the fields of journals... just a wee ripple right now... but ...

Be nice to people... it's the best investment you can make.

~ yeah, I really need to get some sleep.
~ I ordered Snatch Deluxe Superbit edition today... Amazon.ca...

Night night...

* I'm sorry. I will try** to never say dreadfully again... promise.

** this close (pinching fingers together gesture) to saying "endeavor"...

Morn'en... :D

You know... I got a load of cards (and some treats!!! Aimee you are soooo sweet!) and absolutely buckets of great vibes from my friends this year... (er... the birthday thing). Thanks again... it really makes me feel about 10 feet tall... and, btw, I'm not 10 feet tall... not even 6 feet tall... ok ok ... I'm actually only 4 feet tall... I'm a midget... or a madget, but that's only when I do dishes... and ok, fine, I'm not really... I'm exceptionally average... and I'm not a midget or a madget, not that there's anything wrong with that... (ahhh Jerry) but ... the point is... (yeah, there was a point) I am average in many ways... like 5'10" (and change that I mention when I'm actually asked...) but I am made to feel really wonderful by the great vibes I get from my friends.

Ok... enough of that. :D

~ a trip out to swap cars... leave Z's maxima for the mirror repair, and bring my civic home to try the Home Remedy thing... it's gonna such but I've got to try... I mean, $200... bah!

Birthday CatchUp!

~ Arizona!! The land of road runners and one of my favourite new friends evah! Happy Slightly Late birthday Lyssa-snacks... (yesterday was lil_sass's birthday). May you have a wonderful year ahead... maybe a trip to see your sister, and all the very best for your family. You've brought many smiles to my days and I hope I am fortunate enough to have many many more ahead.

~ and then it's off to TEXAS!! Happy Birthday Jeanie... pookfreak... my little Adora-Monkey... (lol) You are an absolute freaking treasure and it will take an act of god to keep me out of your life (so there!). Have a wonderful birthday lil'sugar and I hope the year ahead brings you warm happy moments that you will never ever forget.

wading in, ... again.

How is the news I'm seeing from the US about same sex marriage possible?
Am I reading it incorrectly?
Is the current political trend one that travels away from same sex marriages towards some kind of rekindled pre-cambrian notion that the only couples are man-woman couples?

If you've followed my rants in the past... then this is old news, but let's review;

The same sex issue comes up for one of two reasons.
~ as an appeal to the laws concerning property rights and financial entitlements under law, and more specifically, under tax law.
~ as an intangible emotional struggle against the church.

Really... if the church wants to say only men and women may form sanctioned unions... well fine. These are the same people that tell us contraception is wrong and sex out of wedlock is a sin. "You get what you pay for" has never been truer and everyone that tosses in when the offering tray comes around is supporting these principles of sin and moral correctness. And if "but they do so much to support our community" is on your lips... fine... but I can think of several community organizations that could use financial support that don't make the headlines with the sort of shit the church steps in.

So if we set aside the church issues for a moment... why the hell is the political machine not waving the equality flag on the property rights and entitlements issue? Do American politicians - um, you elected them, btw, really believe that same sex rights, like these, are wrong headed. Are you going to stand by and watch your elected officials tell a life time partner that he or she has no rights to their partners property just because their gay? If it were up to me, I'd be calling for economy-halting-public-demonstrations against this foolishness.

If your marital status is on your tax return, then it's not a religious issue. Does your tax return ask you what religion you are and then go on to give or take away tax benefits as a function of your answer?

What an absolute load of crap!

k... no fooling but... the smell of eucalyptus (vic's vapo rub) and coffee mix together, making the smell of peanut butter.
No really... a wee bit of vapo rub on your lip and have a sip from cup of fresh coffee....

how bizarre

ps. the same sex marriage thread ... way to go guys!!!
What an excellent exploration of that issue... and, as far as I can tell, nobody was acting like a git... just good words from real people!
