You go girl!

Susi: You're such a dear for helping take care of so many people. What a strong woman! *HUGS*

Patricia: I'm glad you're mother's day turned out for the best.

Tomorrow is dentist for me! ARRGH!!! *packs up all her valium, valerian root and prepares for her "hostage crisis"*

Due to past drug use (yay recovery?) and bulemia, I now get to have all my teeth yanked and have fake ones put in at the tender age of 41! WHEE!

*feel the sarcasm*

Tomorrow's just X-rays and stuff, but I'm absolutely phobic of dentists (for some unknown reason) to the point where I've passed out before.

WHEE! Loads of fun for the entire family!

If nothing else, perhaps I can serve as an example of what not to do when you're young!

I lit the candle in front of Ganesha for you, Brighid--you hang in there. As a fellow "terrified-of-dentists person", I really, really know what you're going through, but when it's over, you'll have a beautiful smile again and you'll probably be healthier, too. Bad teeth have a tendency to cause all sorts of low-grade infections and can really drain a person, without their even knowing it

L. A. B., I'm so thrilled for you! My pea-brain is not up to any kind of puzzles like that, probably due to their similarity to tests, which I'm phobic about So I hugely admire folks who can not just DO them, but do them WELL

(Listens to all that slurping and hears "ocean waves.") Ah, calm the mind, calm the body, thanks Pat. It was very like taking those "IQ/What do ya wanna be when you grow up" tests we all took in 8th and 11th grade, except they attached a "hunt for answer" at the end of each puzzle. (Am I paranoid in thinking that MS/Google/Sony is watching my abilities and going to "pounce" on me as soon as the game is complete??)

Dentists to me seem like the only group that doesn't have a 'policing' of policy regarding the care of teeth. Some over-drill (my son found this out from a dentist who told him, his old dentist took away too much tooth, leading to early root-canals.) Why isn't there a backlash of "lawsuits" for overkill?? (Can you tell I dislike dentists as well!!) All that mercury in the mouth was not good for me. After a root canal/cap that cost $2500/3000 I knew someone was making a "huge" profit at the cost of the patient and their insurance. There needs to be exploration by someone to see if this can be changed. (Getting off my rant now!!!)

Mexican breakfast sounds great just about now!!

*dances!* I survived the dentist with no valium!

The girl who took the x-rays was like nineteen and hurt my mouth! LOL But the dentist was very kind and had a nice voice (soothing voices help me alot).

He said, "Are you positive you want all those teeth out?"

I said, "Yes."

He said, "You're absolutely certain you want all your teeth pulled?"

I said, "Yes."

Wham! Bam! They're making me an appt. with the denture people and the oral surgeon. I should have new, happy, fake teeth (and never have to see the dentist again!) within two months!

WHEE!

Sal, I'll take a strawberry sundae along side my triple caramel mocha!

Patricia: Thank you for the candle! It obviously helped!

LAB: "They" better not try and get to you due to your intellectual abilities! I'll have to sic Tandy on "Them"! (She'll lick them to pieces and whine them to death.)

L. A. B., that's gorgeous! Isn't it neat working on colored paper? The darks or mid-tones are already there and you just have to pick out the light areas--it always makes me feel as if I'm cheating and getting off easy, somehow Love it. Wish I'd done some pastels for this show, but none of my ideas were right for that media.

Did a small astronomical painting yesterday and will finish it today. And I managed to get an old computer art piece to *finally* open again so that I can re-render it at the correct DPI--took days of effort and swearing, since in the 3 years since I did it, some of the textures had inexplicably disappeared from my hard-drive and Poser 4 has a bug that hangs it up if it can't locate a texture

But I finally got it to open, rerendered and am trying to post-work it now in Photoshop...problem is, I've not used Photoshop in a while and have forgotten how to do some basic stuff. But it's coming along, slowly. Then I can give a bunch of $$ to a printer for Giclee prints of it. And I'll have to pay for custom mats, unfortunately--it's a weird size. From now on, I'm going to learn how to do things in standard sizes.

Brighid, I'm so glad the first hurdle is over. Know what you mean about the x-rays hurting your mouth--the pain is so sharp it brings tears to my eyes sometimes, when they place those sharp cardboard film holders in tender places. OUCH.

Got my little "prize" in the mail, it's cute. Worth about $30.00 and will probably be sold at Barnes and Nobles, but it is made of metal and the letters "roll."

Ah well, Friday will never come, so I can get this over and clean out my "tracking cookies!!"

(Politically correct???) The new jargon!!
Due to the climate of political correctness now pervading America, Kentuckians, Tennesseans and West Virginians will no longer be referred to as "HILLBILLIES." You must now refer to them as APPALACHIAN-AMERICANS.

And furthermore...

HOW TO SPEAK ABOUT WOMEN AND BE POLITICALLY CORRECT:

1. She is not a "BABE" or a "CHICK" --- She is a "BREASTED AMERICAN."
2. She is not a "SCREAMER", a WHINER or a "MOANER" --- She is "VOCALLY APPRECIATIVE."
3. She is not "EASY" --- She is "HORIZONTALLY ACCESSIBLE."
4. She is not a "DUMB BLONDE" --- She is a "LIGHT-HAIRED DETOUR OFF THE INFORMATION SUPERHIGHWAY."
5. She has not "BEEN AROUND" --- She is a "PREVIOUSLY-ENJOYED COMPANION."
6. She is not an "AIRHEAD" --- She is "REALITY IMPAIRED."
7. She does not get "DRUNK" or "TIPSY" --- She gets "CHEMICALLY INCONVENIENCED"
8. She does not have "BREAST IMPLANTS" --- She is "MEDICALLY ENHANCED."
9. She does not "NAG" you --- She becomes "VERBALLY REPETITIVE."
10. She is not a "TRAMP" --- She is "SEXUALLY EXTROVERTED."
11. She does not have "MAJOR LEAGUE HOOTERS" --- She is "PECTORALLY SUPERIOR."
12. She is not a "TWO-BIT HOOKER" --- She is a "LOW COST PROVIDER."

HOW TO SPEAK ABOUT MEN AND BE POLITICALLY CORRECT:

1. He does not have a "BEER GUT" --- He has developed a "LIQUID GRAIN STORAGE FACILITY."
2. He is not a "BAD DANCER" --- He is "OVERLY CAUCASIAN."
3 He does not "GET LOST ALL THE TIME" --- He "INVESTIGATES ALTERNATIVE DESTINATIONS."
4. He is not "BALDING" --- He is in "FOLLICLE REGRESSION."
5. He is not a "CRADLE ROBBER" --- He prefers "GENERATIONAL DIFFERENTIAL RELATIONSHIPS."
6. He does not get "FALLING-DOWN DRUNK" --- He becomes "ACCIDENTALLY HORIZONTAL."
7. He does not act like a "TOTAL A&&" --- He develops a case of RECTAL-CRANIAL INVERSION."
8. He is not a "MALE CHAUVINIST PIG" --- He has "SWINE EMPATHY."
9. He is not afraid of "COMMITMENT" --- He is "RELATIONSHIP CHALLENGED."
10. He is not "HORNY" --- He is "SEXUALLY FOCUSED."
11. It's not his "CRACK" you see hanging out of his pants --- It's "REAR CLEAVAGE.

NOW, YOU KNOW HOW TO SPEAK!!!!

Today must be computer death day. My working computer died, now I'm on my 1/2 working computer and hoping it doesn't die too. If it does, that's the end of computers for me for a while. Can't afford to get them fixed and certainly can't afford a new one. I don't know what I'll do without it! *DIES*

Hey, LAB, neat-o. Hold on to it. It will become a collector's item. And, because The Da Vinci Code is all mysterious and controversial, there may even be come kind of code in/on it somewhere and in the future there will be another contest for those who won these Crypti (pleural of Cryptex?).

Okay, here's what might be called an "induced synchronicity". Sometimes my memory will hit me with brain-teaser snippets for recreational research. Little itches to scratch.

This morning, due to a bout of insomnia, I was reflecting on various 80s tunes that, while not favorites or even part of a liked genre, nevertheless are able to take me back. The last of these was a dance track from what actually turned out to be 1990 called "That's The Way Of The World". I remembered seeing the video and thinking the woman singing was somewhat cute, and my memory (as it always does) faithfully recorded snippets of images and words and fortunately a few lyrics.

Anyway, after a bit of stubborn Googling and thinking, I finally recalled that her name is Cathy Dennis. So I head on over to Wiki, and learn that she is still working and has a fine resume. Now here's where the synchronicity comes in.

I've never watched 'American Idol' and never will, but I know a good many board denizens do. Well, here's some fun trivia for you. Cathy Dennis (according to Wiki) CO-WROTE THE THEME MUSIC FOR THE SHOW!

Mild wonderment, but wonderment nonetheless...

In case anybody wants to join Waxy in his odd little trip back in time, I found a page with a full streaming-audio of this tune (several mixes in fact)

As I said before, not really my kind of music, but now I remember part of why I became mildly enamored of her. What a sweetly 'girlish' yet strong voice. A voice I would not the least bit mind hearing call my name...

http://www.daliciousmonster.com/Recastow/details.php?vinylID=800

http://www.daliciousmonster.com/Recastow/RAM/wayofworld-b3.ram comes closest to what I remember.

Morning, some of you folks have been complaining about "computer" grief, (slow-ups, things not working properly, etc.) I found this neat page that tells about security patches,
http://72.14.209.104/search?q=cache:cwhnlY5hmekJ:hpsweb.honeywell.com/NR/rdonlyr es/2281308F-44AA-4513-8549-8BC3140B5F79/17185/QualifiedHotfixesforPlantScapeandE xperionPKS.doc+security+patches,+890175,++troubleshooting,+&hl=en&gl=us&ct=clnk& cd=5 which ones are good to have, and which ones are "exceptions." I had two of these patches, (my games had been running slow) deleted them out of "control panel/add/remove programs (this is for WIN98SE) and now my games run like a dream!! Something about those "patches" interfere with various programs. Sometimes the security patches are worse then the "possible" virus/spyware they protect from!!

Anyway, hope this helps.
Pour that Sunday coffee with cream and sugar please, celebrating!!

If you are "downloading" upgrades religiously, it might be that!! C: drive just cannot handle some of them, so it slows things up. Go into your Control panel, add/remove programs, and scroll down to the words "upgrades" and write down the numbers, then go to that "page" I posted, and see if any of your numbers match the ones with "exceptions" if they do, go back to "add/remove" and remove just those numbers. Then reboot, and see if your computer runs better.

(I think this was the problem that kept me from playing "the DC game" online. Oh well, ce la vi.)

Just popping in for a gooey chocolate dessert to soothe my soul--how about a brownie sundae topped with hot fudge Then it's back to work on the painting that's making me nuts today It's called "Lily's Window" and it's got some very disturbing objects in it that are connected to MC. But it also has some very beautiful ones....when it's done, I'll photograph it and link to it. Not sure Sal will want it on her wall. I'm going to put it up at the art show, but not explain what it means. (It'll be marked NFS, of course--Not For Sale)

Speaking of TVs, I need to get the one in the studio hooked up again, so that I can distract myself a bit. The long hours are getting to me and it would also make me refocus my eyes more often and maybe prevent eyestrain/fatigue.

I've had a rough day, Sal. I'll take what Patricia's having too! And a never-ending supply of iced water for the hot-flashes.

I need a hot fudge sundae with peppermint stick ice cream and extra whipped cream.
I feel strange today. I'm not sure what is wrong, but something is going to happen.
Thank heavens I can come here and eat what I want without the consequences. I've lost over twenty pounds in the past six weeks and am feeling very deprived lately.
I think sometimes what visions I see are not actually premonitions of things to come, but scenes from a movie or tv show or commercial that is still in development.
What if Nostradamas was seeing scenes from movies like "The Day after Tomorrow" or tv shows like 10.5 ? Maybe his little crystal ball or whatever picked up the tv frequencies. He wouldn't know the difference, right?

Stuff I like to think about while nibbling on hot fudge.

We are laughing right now because my husband just 'passed gas' and the actress on TV said " Can you smell that?"

Hubby is going in for "laser surgery" on his right eye, strange about "synchronicity." I was having an "itchy eyeball" from hay fever and figured I needed to make an appointment for myself to get some new "gas-perms" (it's been some time.) So I schedule the appointment, then daughter squeeks that she had just bought tickets for the "Da Vinci Code" and hubby said he needed to change his glasses, so he took my appointment and I went to the movie. We come back, and he tells me the optician is sending him to the laser Dr. because there is an "anomaly" on his eyeball, near a blood vessel that needs to be fixed. Guess it's good my "itchy eye" did something to save his sight. Maybe I'll get to the eye-opty later in the week.
Wish him luck!!! Pour that coffee strong and black.

Buddie, there's a phenomenon called pareidolia where the human mind has a 'knack' for finding faces in random patterns. I suspect that's what's happened here. Don't fret! Waxy's angels are all good...

[chuckle] Nope, thank goodness for that! Anyway, perhaps in lieu of monsters-in-the-closet, one of my obsessions as a kid was to see demon faces in woodgrain on furniture. I still can, but I know they're not literal demons (unless maybe the tree was possessed - can that happen? )

Thanks Waxy :-)
A face..Yes me too..in wood and anything with a pattern really..I used to sketch so it's probably our artistic eye.
I'm not worried about this.
It was different because when I looked at the wall pic it remained the same,just the screen
saver flipped upside down..and it did not register at first..I just went whats up with my angel..
looked back and forth a few times ,got the Willies then went TECHNO..
moved the mouse " Poof " gone and it was normal today..

Lab..Are Blue eyes dominant over Brown ?
as in blue,brown,hazel green..
Go Blue..UMM !! .Toronto Mapleleafs!

Buddie, you know Brown is dominant!! However, I broke that mold, my hubby has brown eyes, but must carry a recessive blue, because three of my children have blue or dark grey eyes (baby eyes that never changes!!) and one has brown.

Weird.

But then, you knew that!!

One coffee/cocoa latte for me please, going to see 'Celestine Prophecy' the movie today!! Critics panned it, which means.... it's probably WONDERFUL!!
