Tomorrow is an 'art day' around here--I have a painting called "Lily's Window" that I'm dying to get finished, so that I can move on to something new. It was what I worked on for the whole last painting class semester and I'm *sick* of it after staring at it so long! Almost done with the acrylic part and next week I'll finally begin the alkyd part--mostly areas that need a lot of blending. (I used to paint full-time and finish even a complex painting inside of a week--most, in a couple of days--now it takes much longer, unfortunately for my impatient personality.

But today The Skeptic is taking me to see "V for Vendetta" and I can't wait!

i love maxfield parrish. my favorite one is the girl on the swing.

i'm very undisciplined...i've put the background on first and other times i've done it last. i don't have any one method. i just somehow get the paint on the canvas and see what happens. lol

And as we speak, I now have a 30 pound, 7 month old bagal laying asleep behind my computer-chair on the bed. She really wore herself out! LOL

My Dad was as excited as I was about the prospect of the puppy, he just has to hide it under being a crab-pot. We got there early, waited, then when they brought her in he immediately wanted the leash. LOL We wandered about and I spent my hard-saved money getting her everything she needed, then went back and got her. By that time, a million and one people were around, the poor pup was terrified and hiding under the table. So I sat down with her and pet her and tried to comfort her, and she began licking me. We bonded instantly and she hasn't let me out of her sight yet.

She loves her huge yard we have here for her. She's cute out there, looking all the hunting-dog she is as she sniffs around the cedar trees and fallen maple leaf piles.

She's not so comfortable in the house yet, but of course that takes time. She's very nervous around my Dad (though she tries hard even now after only two hours to accept him) so I think she was probably abused in Puerto Rico by men (probably as she wandered about the streets and probably got kicked around and stuff alot, but that's just guessing). She growled at my dad when he came in my room! LOL I told her "no, its okay" and comforted her. She didn't growl the second time. But its nice to know she's protective too... though I'm going to have to seriously take her about and socialize her with people (she does great with other animals though! She loves other dogs.)

*takes a breath*

Not that I'm excited.

So I think I'll take that espresso decaf today, please!

Susi: The 30 pound bagel gets no cream cheese, otherwise it'll put on the pounds!

LAB! How did you know she was made of concrete?! I just found out myself when I tried to move her off the bed to take her out. She wasn't too happy about giving up her warm bed for the cold outside. She laid there, then bribed me with kisses, then faked not being able to get down off the bed. However, I finally succeeded and made her prove to me that yes, she is indeed housebroken.

I made her a "den" under our kitchen table where she feels safe, with all her blankets, pillows, toys and chewies, then snuck off to leave her to bond with Dad (who sits at the table all the time watching TV) for a while.

Free babysitting!

*holds out her 20 oz coffee mug* Fill'er up! It's going to be a long night!

... that bonding lasted five minutes ... just enough time for me to write all that above ...

Ooooo--pizza nite! [said with a Homer Simpson drool] Pat stumbles in half-asleep due to The Skeptic waking her up *2 hours* early

Then he FINALLY left to go on a hike and I, of course, was way too wide awake to go back to bed....hate when that happens. Looks like a multiple cup of coffee day comin' up, doesn't it?

I think I'll have a double mocha with a shot of Kahlua (inspired by Brighid) and just bring it over to her corner. I think I'll curl up with her and Tandy and hope for the dawning of mental clarity for all of us. Brunch later, methinks. Then some painting...if I can stay awake.

"Did you like Vendetta" Pat?
Are you going to share the chocolates ?
Or did The Skeptic eat them

I feel for all you tired people.
I'm going to work this week knowing I've misplaced a 100 pens and papers.

It was there a minute ago and next thing
I'm asking " where's this where's that" .
It's under my nose but I can't see it or
find it.

Monday will be much better

buddie, I just posted my own little review of "V" in the Philosophy topic area under the Recommend Movies thread. It's no where as insightful as Roger Ebert's review, but I had to speak up for the movie and get people to go see it. It may not be anywhere near Oscar quality, but it's entertaining and will actually make people *think* and feel real, complicated emotions. And you won't walk out feeling cheated of your movie $$

Now, I'm going for a long walk--Sun's shining and the sky looks the way a CA sky is SUPPOSED to look: cloudless and postcard blue

I'll pop in here on my way home for a restorative hot chocolate though, since it's still chilly. And I'll bring chocolates to share--non-pareilles (however the heck you spell that word?)

susi, too cool about that list!! Hope I have a prominent spot This board should just have an 'Ignore' function, where you can tune people out if they drive you nuts. It would be a wonderful thing to just not even SEE their posts.

Mmmm--potato soup! My Irish genes kick in at the very mention of it. When The Skeptic's safely on a plane for FL tomorrow AM, I'm picking up ingredients for a big pot of corned beef, potatos and green beans, all boiled together. Love it. Ditto for corned beef and cabbage...classic poor folks food back East.

cabbage with salt pepper and butter.

buddie are you picking on lab or trying to cause trouble because I assure you Lab is a reasonable person and totally undeserving of I donít know what your trying to do. what are you doing to her?

and for what reason.

we are at sals to have fun and let our minds have fun and we donít take each other so seriously or hurt on purpose. if our game has hurt you I think that you need to think about what it is your doing here.

sals is a friendly place. we share here we can go off topic here the other threads are specific,

we have a light nature here

nothing matters here.

are you OK buddie?

Chain Letter For Women

Dear Tired and Discontented Woman:

This letter was started by a woman like yourself, in the hopes of
bringing relief to other tired and discontented women. Unlike most chain
letters, this one does not cost anything. Just send a copy of this
letter to 6 (six) of your friends who are equally tired and
discontented, then bundle up your insignificant male other and send him to
the woman whose name appears at the top of the list. Then remove the top
name and add your name to the bottom of the list.

When your name comes to the top of the list, you will receive 16,877
men, and one of them is bound to be a hell of a lot better than the one
you already have!

DO NOT break the chain ---- have faith !!
One woman broke the chain and got her own S.O.B. back! At this writing,
a friend of mine had already received 184 men. They buried her
yesterday, But it took 3 undertakers 36 hours to get the smile off her
face, and 2 days to get her legs together so they could close the
coffin.

YOU MUST HAVE FAITH !!

Fill'er up please, the usual sans Khalua today. Tandy has now become Mandy since Dad can't remember "Tandy". She likes her puppy-chow warm and wet please.

(She also thinks 5 am is a decent hour to wake up! *DIES*)

(Takes the chain letter away and slowly burns it in the roaring fireplace.) There, now here's a few stuffed bears for the "corner" pick any and give it a good hug. (Picks her favorite brown bear, with the softest fur.) I'll whisper in it's ear that I don't give a rat's petutie that I'm on Aztec's ignore list, as it grows, he'll be typing to the wind.

I love you L.A.B., you know what works!

Susi: I'd kill. I don't do well without my sleep and the last two nights have been really rough on me. And because I can't be really asleep (have to be "ready" at a moment's notice, not just for Mandy but for Dad as well, my TWO children) I've had to lose the anti-anxiety meds (which make me sleep/dopey, and not stressing or a b*tch.)

John, you are head of the class here, a fixture like the mirror ball and the juke box. Top of my list!!
(Don't let the "boys" get you down, real "men" won't.)
That chocolate latte hit the spot (pets the bear) sometimes a touch of softness can ease pain, that's why they sometimes put premies on sheep skin, it's the soft closeness they crave, like the womb.

Did I tell you my daughter swiped my stuffed Pug dog, and used it in the play "Assasins" as a prop?

when bryn was first hurt and just out of his coma, it was easter and i bought him a stuffed bunny. it was quite odd looking; grey with long flop ears and natty fur. he thought it was the ugliest bunny he'd ever seen. but he kept it by him in bed and if it disappeared, he'd panic.

it's been 5 years and he still has what we fondly refer to as 'ugly bunny'. occasionally xena will steal him and bryn has to chase her around to retrieve ugly bunny.

even 'big boys' need security and comfort. :-)

when my daughter was 2, my friend jim stafford gave her a huge stuffed dog. it was as big as she was. she named it muttly.

she's now 35 and muttly still holds a prestigious place on her bed, though missing one ear, one eye and tongue.

LOL Even dogs... Even adults sometimes! I actually do have a stuffed panther that I've had for a few years now, got it in Missouri when I was living with Blossom. Somehow it psychologically makes up for sleeping alone. Haven't figured that one out yet.

It's still on my bed and just had it's first bout with Mandy... she got its ribbon chewed up pretty good before I could notice it. My fault, I gave her her own stuffie to chew on now. They love those fake-sheepskin things!

Stuffie comfort zone!! (Where the pillows are soft, the massages are free and the music is cool.) Stuffies have a large place in my rooms, never know when one is needed. (They are replacement for animals, allergies keep me from having my own pet, the "cat" lives in daughter's room, have to wash each time I pet her.) Stuffies are calming especially if chosen by the person. They become their "totem" or power animal, defending from all the "bad" stuff life throws at them.

John, i don't see nothin' in the chain letter that specifies all the men folk received are guaranteed one orientation or t'other... want me to put you on the chain? you'd probably get at least 5 or 10% to pick from.

Susi, i'm not sure it's even an issue of arguing with him. Az's view of the cosmos is highly mechanistic. he seems to fully believe (or fully pull our collective leg--wait, that doesn't sound right ) that everything is describable with our limited language. that everything can be named, characterized, and its role thoroughly understood.

i've been taught not to cling to a fixed notion of the form of anything. that forms, identities, roles and relationships are subject to high flux. god-ness, to my understanding, is not anthropomorphic. it is an essence beyond name, form, or description. it does not create reality as some kind of Rube Goldberg contraption, which is how i start picturing Az's various universe schemata.

Just noticed how many of my favorite folks are also on that list...and how many of them have found their way here, too...

Sheila, I laughed out loud at that chain letter--thank you!

Stuffies! Yay! Back before The Skeptic got terminally serious, he used to love them too. I still do! [grabs a bear and happily squeezes its stuffin's]

My current (as in, this very instant--it changes constantly) 10 favorite things in life *in no particular order*:

Warm, dry, soft, fuzzy socks after walking in the rain.

My friends and their weird, wacked-out senses of humor (includes The Skeptic & my sister, too).

Books & movies--my life-long loves.

Trees, especially Oaks.

Chocolate, in all it's myriad forms.

A warm cat on a chilly night.

A fire in the fireplace.

The smells of paints or Fimo clay and that timelessness when creating with them.

Flowers.

My old house.

My beloved corvids (Jays) and my birdfeeder flock of Sparrows and Finches.

That's 11, I think, but then, I never could count

Oops forgot, the musty smell of an old library.

(Hugs the stuffing out of Bear.) Gotta get a needle/thread and keep repairing the holes in the seams. (Sits in corner, relaxed and busy.) Popcorn and Pizza anyone, I'll take one with Sausage and Olives, extra cheese, please!!

its so cold here today and we have yet more rain what is make for us one days break in day 20 of rain every day.

I have my blankie donít need the stuffy though I do miss my teddy bear from when I was small. I loved the fur off of it my sister hid it so I would get over it when I was 7. thatís ok I broke the legs off of her Barbieís. they all had hot paints made from black tape.

cocoa any one?

Good thing it was sunny this morning I planted peas and potatoes. Doing beats and carrots tomorrow if the weather permits. Do have those sunflowers to plant too so much but planting a garden is like free food almost and we use compost we make so it really does well. Think i'll wait for the corn till next month should put in some lettuces. Radish

Have flowers started in little pots all over the patio and the choices of seed this year was very small but I get something good out of what I planted. Have black holly hocks they are soo cool
