|07:00 pm - Grey Saturday|
I am sitting here at Chris's computer with a big slab of haircolor on my head. In another fifteen minutes, I will be restored to diva status. I hate that I have so much grey hair! I started going grey at 18! I have had to color it ever since then! But it has been a wild ride, that is for sure. My hair has been every single color in the book: black, blonde, burnette, red... I never did any crazy punk colors though....It is one of my regrets in life. I am growing it out long right now so it would not be a good time. The next time I plan to chop it off, I will consider it.
So I am sending my best wishes out to Shawn moving into his new apartment today!!! I hope all is going well and that plenty of good and saintly people came to help you out. If we had been in town, we would have been there for sure. We sinners can haul furniture too! I bet Tiff is happy to have you so close by now! She can help you break in the new place....
Last night we went to Borders and browsed. I looked at a few massage and anatomy books and a few cook books they had on sale. I got this one with some bad ass Asian stuff and there are a few in there that I have really been wanting to learn to make. There is also a nice write up on curries. There was this one book called "Comfort Food" and I looked through it and there was all sorts of strange stuff [a lot of British sounding food!]. What is so comforting about kidney pie!? Yuck! I also got another Burt's Bees pedicure kit with the coconut foot lotion cause I have not seen mine in months and I want it! My feet always get rough in the summer cause I wear nothing but sandles and foot flops.
We have had a day full of little victories today. We ate at Moe's for lunch [rock!] and we ran some errands [such as donating a shitload of Chris's stuff to Salvation Army] and now I am coloring my hair so that will be taken care of too! I actually remembered the coupon I had for the hair color and I got 75 whole cents off! We went to the store and got the stuff to make chicken and dumplings tomorrow. I actually remembered all of the stuff from the house like the stock pot, shortnening and wax paper. Go me! That is just the type of thing I normally would have forgotten. Maybe the flower essences are helping... I know the Oil of Olay vitamins have been working! My skin looks great and my nails are growing faster! Of course I use a lot of other stuff on my skin too but at least it is also nourished from the inside. I have a shitload of cosmetics but I think that is a big reason why none of it is make-up except for gloss and stuff for going out. I contemplated starting to wear make up recently but Allison said if I have gone this long, not to start now.
Oh! I forgot to mention the mutant creature living near this building [if not in the roof somewhere]. A few nights ago, Alice was taking out the trash and she opened the side door and saw the beast. Chris heard her scream and ran outside. Her English is not great so she had a hard time telling him what she had seen. It really is getting better though! I can tell a diffference since she got here. I suggested to Chris that it might have been a possom. So he looked one up on the internet and she confirmed that was what she had seen. So we were driving up the lot next to the apartment last night and we saw something running up the little hill! It was the possom! It was big and it was UGLY! I would have screamed too! It came around the corner towards the car for a second and freaked me out but then it ran off. We heard some strange clawing this morning coming from the ceiling so I am sure we have not seen the last of it. Little bastard!
So, I better go wash my hair out.

FIRE SNAKE Horoscope
Jan 23, 1917 to Feb 10, 1918
Feb 18, 1977 to Feb 6, 1978
Snake people enter a room and there is Music, Music, Joy! Everyone dances! Such high spirit! The Snake is so intense and passionate, just as likely to take out the castanets as to climb mountains of snow. Snake year people are charming and romantic, often planning delightful hideaway surprises. Possessing tremendous wisdom, they are deep, quiet thinkers, calm by nature, but most intense. They often get involved in great causes, bigger than life, and often serve as mentors to the young. To paraphrase Confucius, they have a kind of inner beauty that arises, hovers, then comes to nest. They will have an abundance of good fortune and a long and prosperous life.
Sharkfin Soup and Chinese Cabbage are among keys to good health!! [Uhhh, Ok]
The Fire Snake is like a meteor in the sky, brilliant and alive. With spellbinding eloquence, the Snake converses with conviction on a broad range of topics, but realizes that good conversation lies as much in the listening as the talking. The Snake does both very well, raising communication to a very high and elegant art. People love to be in the company of this very graceful Fire Snake, who is always pleasant, provocative, humorous, and quick witted. With split second reflexes, they are constantly conceiving new ideas and coming up with new schemes. This entrepreneurial spirit makes headlines and the Fire Snake is much admired. Because of their ambition, perseverance, and infinite patience, and wise financial moves made early in life, their fortunes grow steadily. By the time middle age arrives, financial fortune is truly theirs. Relationships follow the same path, through faithfulness, perseverance, and willingness to make relationships really work, the future is always bright.

I wanna turn you on. HA! I am listening to "Siamese Dream"! I am having so much fun!! I saw them twice with Patrick and they were such great shows! If they did a reunion tour, I would go to see them. Fuck this Zwan shit though. I am having a hard time getting into Billy Corgan's new band. This is all Ryan's fault [allison's ryan, not our friend-----I had to clear that up cause I say that about Buck a lot too! :)] cause he was rapping in the garage, and he said "I smash pumpkins like Billy Corgan" or something and I had the passionate urge to dig out "Siamese Dream" and listen to it! It is sooooo great! It is in my top five favs of all time! I have had this copy since I was 18 or 19 and I don't remember who got it for me. It might have been Tiffany cause someone got me "Jagged Little Pill" too and I still have it. Ha! This copy of "Siamese Dream" has about had it though! It is sooooo scratched!
So I have some like 50 SPF sunscreen on and I am sitting out on the back porch writing this. I am boiling brown rice and am gonna mix it with some pintos and leftover cornbread tonight. I have no pepper sauce or vinegar though! :( Suckage! I am trying to get a little color on my legs cause they are white! I HATE shorts, HATE them! They are so uncomfortable for me! I love dresses though and I am gonna have to start wearing more or my legs will never see the light of day. I have a decent amount of color on my arms but not much on my face. I do not have my glasses on though so I am making a lot of mistakes! I have some lemon juice! I am gonna put some in my hair and lighten it a bit....and it will be much more natural too! I think my hair has forgiven me for lightening it.
Laura....Post some pics on the blog from your weekend! What is this resteraunt in Chicago? Is this for your birthday!? How fucking cool!

|01:11 pm - Just one more reason Bush should not be the leader of ANYTHING!|
a NEWSWEEK investigation shows that Bush, along with Defense Secretary Rumsfeld and Attorney General John Ashcroft, signed off on a secret system of detention and interrogation that opened the door to such methods. It was an approach that they adopted to sidestep the historical safeguards of the Geneva Conventions, which protect the rights of detainees and prisoners of war. In doing so, they overrode the objections of Secretary of State Colin Powell and America's top military lawyers—and they left underlings to sweat the details of what actually happened to prisoners in these lawless places. While no one deliberately authorized outright torture, these techniques entailed a systematic softening up of prisoners through isolation, privations, insults, threats and humiliation—methods that the Red Cross concluded were "tantamount to torture."

Awareness requires a rupture with the world we take for granted.
