  1. Stop talking about politics for a moment or two.
  2. Post a reasonably-sized picture in your LJ, NOT under a cut tag, of something pleasant, such as an adorable kitten, or a fluffy white cloud, or a bottle of booze. Something that has NOTHING TO DO WITH POLITICS.
  3. Include these instructions, and share the love.

Abbie & YinYang outside

Actually I was just at coffee with malibran and cracicotus and we discussed both politics AND cute animals.

Mr. Green Thumb

I don't know if I've ever mentioned it here, but Caleb has the magic touch when it comes to plants. He also trends to treat his plants like their his pets (i.e. he dotes on them), which certainly contributes to their health. Caleb is so gifted that not only can he care for a large collection of plants at his house, but he does "rescue" work, bringing back to life plants I have (nearly) killed and then returning them to me.

Anyway, today Caleb is VERY excited because a small miracle occured in his carniverous plants garden. It's quite impressisive and would not be happening were he not so good with plants.

Meanwhile I have this potted plant on my kitchen table I got in May and has been flowering ever since. I don't know what it is, but until it stops flowering I probably won't be buying any bouquets. I'm amazed it's not dead, let alone that it keeps flowering like this.

My hits are going to skyrocket!

I was just informed that there's a top-selling book out called Metro Girl! Hopefully people will go to my web site and looking for a book, see Breeding Discontent, and being stupidheads, buy it instead of this other novel. (People, after all, constantly send job applications and request for bus directions to my MARTA guide!) Bwahahaha.

A Genre I Do Not Like

Reality TV sucks!!!!!

I cannot stand it. I prefer watching sports, infomercials, surgery, shopping networks, evangelical worship services, county music performances and just about anything else on TV over reality TV shows.

(There are a couple of exceptions of course, although oddly for me the exceptions are all sort fo similar. The exceptions are: Fear Factor, Scare Tactics, and Jackass. I enjoy all of those on some level. Scare Tactics is my favorite, though, since I know any of the things they do would scare the living sh*t out of me. I also exempt any and all home decorating makeover shows.)

Shows that involve people living a house/island/room/resort/trailer together, dating, tricking family members into hating one another, sexual confessions, contests, being "voted off," and/or any other variation of such themes, where stupid idiots, and even people who should know better, act like 12-year-olds... they made my blood boil, my skin crawl, my hair stand on end. The combination of the shows themselves, coupled with the fact that people WATCH these shows (including intelligent people who think it's somehow funny) drives me insane, makes me nauseous! Puke!

Can you tell I just saw 10 minutes of a show? Ugh! Ooh! Yuck! Must take a shower, I feel so dirty. Filth filth filthy. 2 Live Crew is cleaner!

The magic word is...

Pee-Wee's Playhouse is coming to DVD. Since I somehow never got it on VHS, I am SO there! Esp. if there's bonus material! Ooh! Ooh! I was totally too old for Sat. morning cartoons by the time this was on the air, but I tuned in every week. One of the coolest, most entertaining kooky things ever on TV. Yay!
