Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.

WARNING!!!! if you know me personally, you may read my diary, but if you do, you take the chance of hearing things you don't want to know, misunderstanding what I've written and being hurt by it. If you are unsure if it is ok to read, save yourself and me the grief and heartache, and ask first!!! Please note that this is a DIARY, ie my subjective feelings, hearsay, suppositions, and outpourings of ranting of the moment. It does not represent objective news, the whole of what I think of a topic or someone, or even a thought-out representation of any of the above. Keep that in mind. Thanks. * Here is a Diary Etiquette Read Me.

SquirrelX is a Quotable Gal...

Second entry today. First here: So Very Tired.

I'm just readin' SquirrelX's new diary entry... which is excellent as always.. this woman really should publish, though she'd pooh pooh such a thing. This is someone who manages to host an open house to the whole county she lives in on Thanksgiving, including feeding them all, and who still thought she'd not be up to havin her inlaws to be for Christmas. Seriously underestimates herself she does.

But I just gotta quote her here a couple times, as today, besides the always incredible list of quotes she trots out before each entry, she herself was just poppin with the good'uns. Here goes:

As to why she reads The National Enquirer at the grocery store checkout:

"'Cause I've got an enquirin' mind and it wants to know."

Something I agree with (and my conscience reminds me when I want to be mean instead of just angry):

Gettin' angry is one thing. It's human. Happens to everybody. Gettin' mean is another thing all together and makes no difference where you are, it's wrong!"

A brilliant observation that tends to hold for all the people who like to call me "drama"... curiously they are ALL people who have treated me like shit and then not wanted to hear about it: (my emphasis)

Benita isn't particularly fond of Rachel anymore. I'm not sure why; they've never had an altercation. Maybe it's because Rachel is famous for callin' a spade a spade and Benita is a spade who's afraid she'll be called.

Well that's it.

The good news is that I did manage to get computer help over the phone this afternoon. We put all the newly downloaded Quicktime bits into a desktop folder and restarted the puter. Desktop kdlang is still off galavanting, cuz according to my puter she is a Quicktime Picture, and thus on vacation while my Quicktime is quarantined.

The bad news is it cost me $40, that help. Plus a whole afternoon of lost work (cannot fax drawings, make photocopies, send things UPS etc while talking through computer fixin with the computer guy at $20 per ten minutes!!)

So, I advise if you want to see Cyndi Lauper talk, it is best to spend $45 Canadian to see her live for two hours rather than spend $40 Canadian to see her Quicktime video online for two minutes, if that. Yup. Cyndi, your online free extras suck the bigtime.

And Quicktime, you stupid asses, your OS7-OS9 -compatible version totally is not compatible with OS8.5, no matter what you say. I should send you the bill.

And I still have to pay a guy $75 an hour on Wednesday to come and see if I can actually get my computer working properly again, rather than just have my Quicktime corralled up. Grrr.

Yah for upgrades and downloads. But at least my puter works now. Thanks for everyone's help. yeah.

Hehe, this from MoodyMelinda's place:

pummel
Weapons are not your thing. You would prefer to
pummel your opponent to death with your fists
and feet. You show a lot of Honor but some
power still eludes you. I can give you this
power, I can make you stronger, join me.


How would you Murder?

They're right. I would prefer to pummel them to death.

What's your sexual appeal?

I had to redo this. Apparently clicking "I like girls" gets you called an immature schoolgirl. Jeesh.
mysterious
You have a mysterious kiss. Your partner never
knows what you're going to come up with next;
this creates great excitement and arousal never
knowing what to expect. And it's sure to end
in a kiss as great as your mystery.

What kind of kiss are you?

Well, that's it, end of work break. Hehe, I wonder if Corona affects my drawings. Now I am going to do the scary part... the cloudy skies on the rainy pictures. I am one day behind on this. Yup. damn me. It has to be sent off today Tuesday by 5pm. duh. silly me.

A tidbit from Radio Sweden. Apparently a study in France released for International Women's Day discovered that in Sweden the average difference between Men's and Women's salaries was below ten percent, and in France it was TWENTY-FIVE percent. I shudder to think what it is in Canada and the US. But then the US hasnt ever ratified equal rights for women. I mean really... Did JESUS think Women were Equal?? For a hint, read your new testament. yeah. duh. (and of course the US is a CHRISTIAN country so what Jesus thought dictates national policy... oops I am getting angry AND mean! )

Here is my horoscope for Monday, March 8:

A series of good deals guarantees that everyone will be your friend. You grant individual favors without seeming to play favorites. This is a fine time to go public with a secret romance.

A secret romance!!! BWAAAAHHHHAAAAHHHHAAAAHHHAAA who the hell are they kidding! But my doggy hasnt eaten any shit lately so I get lots of kisses from her! :)
