sideview, obamame_sideview

(no subject)

It's 5. Didn't even finish my cup of coffee, but I couldn't go to bed when I was done. But now... horizontality is an appealing concept.

Sunday continued... no wait, it's Monday

I love the big windows I have, but they hold a definite disadvantage when it comes to attempts to "sleep in" -- as in, there ain't no way it can happen! I've got "sun-blocking" shades but basically as soon as the sun comes up, it's light in here. The only truly dark place would be one of my bathrooms.

So I woke up at 8. Forced myself to stay in bed. Meanwhile my birds (whose cage I didn't bother to cover) decided to have a hysterical fit for a hour or so, flying back and forth in the next room, sitting on the air vent over my bedroom door and squawking... basically some kind of "Are you awake?!" act, only who knows why, since they don't like me and don't ever try to get my attention. The birds are *still* doing this right now in fact. I don't hear any pig squealing.

Anyway, stayed in bed 'til 9:45, although I didn't really sleep as much as I held my eyes shut and stressed out over various stuff. Finally I got up. First thing I noticed was that my nightgown was on backward. This doesn't surprise me.

My computer has just reminded me I need to go get my allergy shot. This Monday is going to be really Monday-like, I think.

Garrison Keillor

Poll #352859 Garrison Keiller

When Garrison Keillor is on the radio you...

Don't know it b/c you don't know who that is
Listen to him if you have time; he's OK and sometimes funny
Settle down and enjoy it -- whether it's "Prairie Home Companion" or something else
Listen to him and get irritated and bored after a while, then switch him off
Turn off the radio and listent to industrial music to purge yourself of his smarminess

Sensible Indulgence

Felt horrible on my way up to Buckhead for my shot this morning. Not just tired, but nauseous, soul-sucked, etc. Then on the bus up Peachtree, I noticed Intermezzo, Atlanta's only European-style coffeeshop/bakery/restaurant cafe, and thought, "Hmmm, you and I need to meet up again." So after my shot I went and had a lonnnnnnnnnng, slow self-indulgent midday meal of Caffe Intermezzo (coffee, chocolate, almond), a big cheese & fruit platter, and then a piece of chocolate mousse / rapsberry preserve cake so rich I had to have half of it boxed. Mmmmm.

Of course after I left I realized I was still feeling nauseous, tired and I had a headache, but hey, I relaxed and ate well. Just had some aspirin. Hope I can deal with the rest of the day.

Slow healing

I'm a slow healer, but right now I'm thinking I'm healing even slowly for ME. I mean, I've got cuts, scars and scrapes on me I got like 2 months ago that just won't fade out. Cut my foot and knee in July and the scars are still not at the shiny silver stage, but at the red/purple phase. Can't wear my favorite sandals because I was wearing them when I fell and they're what made the cut, which still hurts for some reason. I fell roller skating like a year ago and my elbow skin won't smooth out no matter what. There are just all these marks all over me that aren't getting better. I asked my doctor about it, if it was some anemic thing or some warning sign of diabetes or whatever, and he said my blood is supposedly fine, but some people just heal really slowly. My dad and mom are both like that, so I guess it could be true.

I guess it's no wonder I never want any kind of surgery. Somebody who gets a scar from a papercut definitely should avoid being sliced open, lased or anything else. I mean, I have scars from mosquito bites!

I don't always agree with the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force (though they are way less annoying than HRC), but I like their appraoch with this press release...

Evangelist Jimmy Swaggart Threatens To Kill Gays
National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Responds

Statement by Matt Foreman, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Executive Director:
"The leaders of major organizations heading the campaign to deny same sex couples equal marriage rights frequently say that they do not hate gay people and that they respect us as human beings. Just last night in a national simulcast to oppose same sex marriage, for example, Focus on the Family President Dr. James Dobson said, "I'm not here to cast aspersions on homosexuals... they need our acceptance and respect... We are not hateful people."

The Task Force calls upon the leaders of last night’s simulcast - Dr. James Dobson (Focus on the Family), Tony Perkins (Family Research Council), Ted Haggard (National Association of Evangelicals), Richard Land (Director of the Religious Liberties and Ethics Division of the Southern Baptist Convention) - to immediately denounce anti-gay violence and specifically repudiate evangelist Jimmy Swaggert’s statement, "I’ve never seen a man in my life I wanted to marry. And I’m gonna be blunt and plain: if one ever looks at me like that, I’m gonna kill him and tell God he died."

All lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and all people of good will be listening."
