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.

Please note that this is a DIARY, ie my subjective feelings, hearsay, suppositions, and outpourings of ranting of the moment.

A Noteless girl gives Helpful Hints

I think I scared away all my readers with my cannibalism/ limits of consent entries. Deep sigh. No notes (well thanks cactustree, and sorry it was "alot to take in") sigh again! Note, I really don't know how that last entry ever came about as me being "so self-aware and so comfortable in my skin"... though it does help when your skin is neither too tight nor too really really loose! :) haha. I am a mess, read my other entries. I am a MESS! (The Murmurs song here "I'm a Mess"... very good for driving a car in the summer)....

Here are some little hints:

  • If you're going to break all the branches off your plants by squeezing by them to go to the bathroom, it would be better to do BEFORE you spend hours scrubbing the bugs off, instead of afterwards
  • If you don't REALLY love your whole house smelling of lemon herb fish, it is best to wash out the pan right after you have eaten and not the next day
  • If you can see the bone where your kitty's little toe ends, it means he has broken off his whole claw and you should probably take him to the vet, even if he isn't limping
  • Ditto if your doggy is having a really hard time getting up from sitting, and whines with that sad poor me doggy face that is not faking it
  • It is good to eat eggs that are from freerange chickens that eat organic food
  • It is good to put said eggs into a cup of water if they have been in the fridge for longer than you can remember. If they float it is cuz you do NOT want to break them open. yucky icky. I'm warning you!
  • If you don't water your plants for long enough, it won't matter if you haven't found time to wash the bugs off of them.
  • Don't scrub plant leaves too hard with a green scrubby, cuz it will rub off the outside of the leaf. Then the leaf will drop dead anyways. This warning is especially especially good for succulents, ie the ones that have fat rubbery leaves like jade plants. They are fat and rubbery for a reason... cuz they are full of water, and the water is inside cuz of their waxy coating. Note to self: must find new way to get scale insects off of succulents
  • If you keep the same email addy for forever, old lovers and friends can get hold of you still (thanks C Lavish) but so will the spammers. Death to penis patches and generic viagra.
  • Kitties play in the water dish less and eat the edges of your paperwork less if you take the time to fish their lost kittytoys out from underneath the furniture
  • It is best to keep your insights to yourself in flamenco class, even if you think it would be really really helpful to share them
  • If your favorite bio chocolate is sold out, you might like to try this very yummy nonbio chocolate from your local shop!! mmmm goooood!!!

Well, that is enough helpfulness for today. Please go and look at my moon picture. Yup. I want people to see how cool nature is. Perhaps that is incurably dorky. Or maybe everyone looked and didnt think it was great. I think a moon rainbow is a funkadelic thing. yup. nature rocks.

ps, some people online could use hugs. Right now they would be Onewetleg, and SquirrelX, Perceptionss and while you're at it, give some encouragement to Starzero, though now he seems to be into dreams, ghosts, and the subconscious instead of self-improvement. Check out poor Dangerspouse who luckily, doesn't have a penis. hehe.

Hey, what does emo mean?? like emo clothes, and emo boy?? I am so lost.

Here is my horoscope for Tuesday, December 9:

Leo is a model of patient motivation. Your story is so hot that sooner or later it catches fire with everyone. Your helping hand can also be outstretched to receive money. Do what seems the most appropriate.

I think this must be someone else's horoscope today, not mine. Hot story yeah. Patient motivation. Yeah, my hand "can also be outstretched", but it was to give 15 checks of $100 each to my friend Charlie, cuz I still owe him big bucks for helping me with the downpayment for my house. Since I never seem to be getting the lump sums I hoped for to pay him all at once, I am trying to even it out, by giving him a check for every monday. I figure it will kind of be like seeing my therapist... It seems somehow less painful to pay once a week than come up with a lump sum of $3000. yup. Well, he smiled alot when I handed it to him.

The only thing in my snailmailbox today was another Christmas request for a charitable donation. Yup. My hand receiving money. They are on some other planet with their astrology today I tell ya.

Ah, my email tells me someone has left me a note. I hope it is nice. Yay yay! a note! :)

Yay! it was from onewetleg. She rocks. hehe. Well, I did this silly "test your knowledge of 80's music" quiz. I only got 42, cuz I am not so good at lyrics, and no, I do not know AC/DC lyrics,and only watched MTV at my mom's at Christmas. No color tv and no cable at my place. Mostly only Brave New Waves on the radio, and cassettes friends gave me. yup. So here you can click and do it yourselves!

ps. Try deleting the end of the URL up til the .com/ after you've clicked on that 80's quiz, and click "enter" to get the original website that quiz is from. Have fun! :)
