Cost of the War in Iraq
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.
Entry on the Run!!!
Ok ok, no entry yesterday... insanely busy day what with getting up early for watercolor class (we painted Christmas lights strung onto a large mirror... how is THAT for a challenge?!), having over a woman who wants to do children's illustration in order to advise her, and then a date with Disappeariing Boy. yikes!
Let me say that getting up early and all that does NOT help me start my day earlier. I thought last night would be a great time for a date since DB is an early riser person and I am always tired on Thursdays because of getting up for my class.
Great, so we watched a movie and fell asleep fairly early (well ok around 3:30 or so), and woke up at 8:30 (I wouldve just rolled over and slept more), and got up for breakie at the coffeeshop. Wow! Wakey wakey!
We chatted a bit. He has decided that my side room is too small for him to paint in, and I hadn't realized that he wanted a place to paint in from 6am til 9pm ... I thought it was for mornings while I slept which would have been ok. But having him here all day and not wanting to get in each other's hair would be a problem. So that's off. Oh well, cuz it is inspiring to share discussions about artwork with him.
And then he left around 11am, I read a few emails and thought to have a couple more hours of sleep. HAHAHA!! Well, I woke up at 3:15 pm. Dang anyways. So I wouldve been better to go to bed at 5am and get up at 1pm. Shit and caboodles.
So it is after 9pm and I am just reading YESTERDAY's emails, let alone starting on diaries. Even Sleepyzoe apparently updated finally with photos, and I haven't taken a gander yet. Nor vacuumed nor started working on the grey tones of the dog gang book. I HAVE done my comics page and read and answered a bunch of stuff, some of which I will excerpt here.
Some ass is trying to rewrite Susan Sontag's sexuality without her permission now that she is dead. Here's a letter I wrote to the LA Times. Please read the link mentioned in the letter to see what I'm on about. Thanks.
Well, there ya go. Jeesh.
OK, back to reading emails. I will have to do a whole entry with just fun links i have found lately. There are tons.
Oh, other news today: I offered to help a neighbor shovel out his car (we had ten centimetres of snow yesterday!) but someone has stolen my shovel off my front step! dang!! And I got totally accosted by some totally insane bezerk asshole who started screaming "dogs before people" as I stepped onto the sidewalk (and yes my dog WAS behind me, so it isn't even like she was in his way) and then screamed "STOP SLEEPING WITH YOUR DOG!!" in my face and coming back towards me when I said "please leave me alone" . Gosh, I was scared silly and totally physically shaking. He seemed to vanish when I started for the firestation saying I was going to call the police. Yikes!
OK, back to emails. Dang I have 418 unread! shit! Even sorting through which ones to delete takes so long!
Now you're a big fan of truth in advertising. Reform always begins with people who are personally affronted or inconvenienced. Old friends may resent that you're switching sides. Your conscience demands it. Here is my horoscope for Friday, January 7: You could be rough or selfish, and still leave anyone you touched begging for more. These days you lead a charmed life of attractive power and beauty for its own sake. If you weren't so nice you'd be dangerous.
