Wednesday, February 8

First and foremost...
The outer circle of my "monkeysphere" became a little smaller yesterday...
A remarkable dad... a loving and well loved husband and a friend had to call in "late".
A tragic accident took his life and has no doubt thrown fear and confusion into the hearts of the people who were closest to him.
Reach out and touch life... let life touch you back... and never forget that we are all only passing through.
Rest in peace dear jerris_darkrun_, and may your family find strength and courage in all you have left in their hearts and minds.


~ green ftls

~ LOST? is lost new tonight??? me = hopes!!!!

Birthday moments...
A birthday and an anniversary!!! have a simply wonderful day grrrrrrrrrrrowl... may your heart continue to soar. Have a lovely year sugar-g. :)

So why is it that with everybody and their dog... business people, politicians, average moms and dads... - and I'm talking heads of state - lining up to decry the goofy illegal war that Bush is waging on Iraq (and don't fool yourself, it's a war against all that "was" Iraq, because America has a new game plan for that part of the world)... With everyone saying it's horrible, wrong, illegal, etc etc etc... why is it that conscientious objectors get such a hard time in Canada when they show up here to dodge the war? On the one hand, it's an evil, horrible, and illegal war... but on the other "oh here you go... more of your children to send for "blowing up" in Iraq."
I say, let 'em stay.

If a few cartoons are all it takes to raise the insanity factor across Stupid Land* to the level it's at today...
what do you think is gonna happen when so-called democratic elections are won and lost between opposing ideologies?

"Edward... do you want to go to the first "mad science" class after school today?"
"and what about fencing? Do you want to go to fencing tonight?"
"yes yes yes yes..."
"Well, if you're too sick for school... you're not doing either of those things..."
"Ok... I'll go to school!"
bang, click... clunk, out the door to the bus. :)
Now I cross my fingers and hope he really was all better.
I'll be taking his temp the second he comes through that door! :D

* Stupid Land : my name for the middle east...

see ya. :D

Why don't you know that you are beautiful?
Has no one ever told you?
Your hair doesn't do that Panteen thing?
There are actual pours on your skin?
Your legs are as long as your waste is around?

I understand.

What you fail to understand...
The thing you seem to keep overlooking...
Is how things change when you smile.
You are allowed to be beautiful.
And it's easy ...
You deserve to be beautiful.
And you can ...

Smile sugar...
... somebody loves you.
And you're always going to be beautiful.

phone call at 4 letting me know we have (had) a showing at 6 to 7.
la la la... six to seven. geez.
So out to fast food with the boys, z at running and then off to fencing.
Home again by 8:00 and homework till ... now.

long day... we were told to expect a showing on the first day so we
were totally behind the eight ball before leaving for work.
"make it look as close to picture as you can..."

The only sign ... is one of the feature book things is gone.
No big basket full of money or people sitting on our door step with big baskets of money wanting our house.
The nerve.


Uno Extreem is next up as a bed-time game with the boys...
then it's CCF (corto content factory) till we watch LOST later... :D :D

ps. Is invasion new?

House Update.

So they call the first floor the "deck".
Once the "deck" is finished it'll be a break while
they finish up on some other house frame, and then they frame ours...
~ and yes, that is a DeWalt "boom box" for the workers... hahaha
~ the incomprehensible word I say towards the end of the very short vid is "beams". :)
