So last night was a total right off... well, ok, not "total". We watched LOST at some point and I watched Jon Stewart... ("What Went Wrong?" - bwaahahaha) but everything last night was done with cold packs or hot packs on my neck... and eventually the strain became a proper migraine so I drugged up and found sleep. sigh. I know I make whiney noises about head aches a lot... thanks for putting up with it. :)
Today dawned brilliantly. There's sunshine, kicken frost... but still... sunshine is good. I was up and at 'em all on-time and stuff... however, I had to detour and drive the 35 iced cup cakes to the school for Geo to share with his class (and the office ladies... :D) The phone rang at 10:ish and it was the school telling me that they had Edward "and he says he's not feeling too good." I want to say "oh he's just jealous of his brother getting some time off and he's a big faker!!!" but I know I can't... and I will err on the side of patience and love... because... that's my job baby... parenting rule number 349 : put off being cynical until they have hair in their pits.
Ten years ago today... my darling Z, in the middle of the night... pushed and pushed and pushed and... we got ourselves a little Geo. I can easily say that that was the most defining night of my life. It divided my life into two distinct halves... the time before and the time after having a child. I thought I knew what love was... I thought I understood fear... and I now know that I knew nothing of these subjects up until I gazed into the eyes of my own little slice of immortality. He is a trusting boy... full of love, care and laughter and he is surrounded by the friends that he so easily makes. He had several choices for what he could do to celebrate his birthday with his friends this year... they included Laser Quest (honking cool-beans laser tag game), a party at Cyber Dome (rock climber, video games, smaller laser quest thing... or a trip with friends to iPlay... a multi player computer game center with party rooms etc. But Geo wanted to invite some girls... well, he wanted to invite one in particular... (Sydney) but he appreciated that she prol'y didn't want to be the only girl... so he invited three... counting on at least one not being able to come... (gah!!!) and then... AND THEN he changed the plans to go to a Wave Pool Birthday Party so that the girls would have fun too. He's just so precious... :)
Happy Birthday my little lovely ... :D

LOST - Sawyer... when Echo handed him that chopper... he should have walked right up to the rosy perez wanna be and hacked off her leg... just for fun.
You know... people can be kinda dumb ass sometimes. There is a big civic meeting tonight here in Ottawa. City council is debating the proposed ban on pesticide use within the city limits. There is not going to be one single person in that meeting who hasn't said "It seems like there's more allergies... like 'peanut allergies or "sesames allergies" etc.." or lamented the need to get water filters in their houses or any of a long list of social and environmental evils that seem to be products of "now" versus "back when so-and-so was young". Yet they have to bright red screeching balls to stand up in a civic meeting and bitch about the city wanting to ban pesticide use. I just don't understand people sometimes.
I remember an episode of West Wing where some "Corn Lobby" was bucking for attention over the notion of making a renewable energy out of corn.... which, of course, raises the stakes for several US states that are otherwise considered... well... cow corn pastures. No respect... The story line included an explanation that seemed to say... "great idea, but there's not enough corn in the universe to sustain the idea." So today I hear a radio story about a south american country that is making ethanol using sugar cain... and that the big Auto (Ford, Fiat... etc) have been making cars for that "flex fuel" for a while now... So I have to wonder... where is the Flex Fuel initiatives in North America and was the discounting of corn in this story just talk to protect the big money makers? (Oil).
The Blog Sphere is awash with information concerning pending indictments for US Fed officials and Bush'ites... tres interesting. I'm leary of course, because there is soooo much crap out there but... one can hope.
Ok... see ya later. :) have a great day muchachos y muchachas... :)
