My mom commented, "And if you can't always do that, then at least lift up the people you are stuck with!"
To which I replied, Nope, tired of carrying all the dead weight!
I stand by that 100 % No more dead weight!
12 AM - After being down all week with that stupid migraine I kind of overdid a wee bit today. Okay, I really overdid it today! But I got so much stuff some it will be worth it if I'm out of commission again tomorrow! Ibuprofen time!
1PM Considered moving back to Fresno for about 5 minutes. Compared the weather. 70 here today, 95 there. Moment of insanity passed. Ugh; the breezeless summer heat, the bitter foggy winters, the flatness asphalt landscape and the self rightious bigots make Fresno rather dull. But my old friends were great and they always managed to stir up enough music and art and laughter to take the edge off.
415PM “One can't complain. I have my friends. Why, someone spoke to me only yesterday.” ~Eeyore~
430PM Okay then, now that I'm amped up, back to work???
440PM Hear Ye Hear ye! Yes, I mentioned some things that I did not like about Fresno, but although I said there were self righteous bigots there, I did not say everyone who lived in Fresno was one! Otherwise I wouldn't have survived 10 years living there. Gee whiz!
445PM Times up! Have to go back to work now!!!!
11AM Can I get through this day that is destined to be an insane frenzy?
3PM Back to the sweaty whirlwind that is my day! Actually staying pretty close to on schedule! Whoot!
5PM I DID IT!
530PM Toast Girl : One of my all time happy making artists!
11:30 AM - Whooot! Just in time for Halloween! Michael Moorcock's new Doctor Who novel THE COMING OF THE TERRAPHILES to be released October 28, 2010.
12:30 - And here is Yentl being all comforting when I was stuck in bed with a migraine yesterday! The mic didn't do a great job of picking up her purring, but she's so pretty!
1PM - Okay. As much as I'd love to (attempt to) spar with the brilliant and fabulous Kathryn about the unfairness of life and how much white people suck...I must run! Ooops. Did I just simplify our "discussion." (tongue was firmly planted in my cheek!) Kathryn, you are really one of my most brilliant friends!
Poop on the Pope!
Apologies and promises don't mean much if you don't take responsibility. Is the Pope really blaming "the Devil?" Oh, and not for the pedophiles in the church or the coverup, mind you, but for the scandal. Really? That sounds sincere. This is a holy man? Catholic church is long overdue for an overhaul!
CNN special, What The Pope Knew full playlist on You Tube:
Since I can't do much of anything myself today, I figured I'd add some photos of my own sweet kitties lounging about.
What my girls do.... Willow is so good at napping sometimes I have to check and see if she's still breathing!
Merph is not too happy that her human has been away for nearly 3 weeks! I miss her too!
My sleepy kitty!
No, Willow is not dead she just sleeps like it!
The epitome of lethargy
Willow crashes like no other cat I've known!
Willow's happiest activities:
So here's the progress of the moth "tattoo" from start to finish. It looks pretty nice now and is lasting well. It should wash off about the time I get tired of it.
Henna moth & moon done by Kali Ma henna, at Temescal Street Fair. Now it's just a matter of keeping it dry and waiting as long as possible for the crust to flake off.
Now most of the crust has flaked off and it's that classic orange-red color. We'll see how much it darkens. Have to try to keep it dry!
All the crust is off and I have a nice orange-red stain.
I love the moon. It's very much like the ones I doodle.
Stain is turning a little browner now. Depending on how much I scrub my arm when I wash it'll last 6-10 days before the skin sloughs off.
Yentl you are adorable, but too furry and cute to have on my lap in this hot weather!
Sweet Yentl trying to make Auntie feel better by snuggling with me, making cute biscuits with her paws and purring (quietly, thank goodness!) Next best thing to my Lilers.
Yentl snuggled right up against me. She's often quite loud but I think she knows my head hurts so she's purring softly, making biscuits and "petting" me with her paws!
Oh, if I had green eyes like that!
Love Mew Yentl!
I know I have a good excuse for being completely unproductive today thanks to this stupid migraine, but I'd really like to get back to it!
Probably most disgruntled about being too sick to go see the Rush film in SF tonight. Why'd they have to do it one night only? Dislike!
At least I don't have to watch out for "he who must not be named" and he won't have to look over his shoulder all night either.
This is, day 4, of my migraine headache! I braved Highland, but they can only give me more of the stuff that hasn't worked! Everyone in this country should have access to the medical care they actually need!
And for all those who say no one is denied health care in this country as you sit smugly and self centered in your bubble. Because I can't afford insurance, I've been on a waiting list for more than 2 years to see a neurologist about these migraines. The only medication that is effective for them, along with several other medications I need is not covered by the county plan. So, I just suffer and become unproductive until I have to waste taxpayer money on a trip to the emergency room. At said emergency room, they were able to do nothing for me. (I thought about telling them to send the bill to Ron Rapozo.)
Teresa M Walker Dude, we are in the same boat. I can't get more meds for my diabetes, hypothryoidism, RLS and high blood pressure until I can pay the $100 for the bloodwork, and then $85 to come back 5 days later for the results. Tried using county clinics.....slightly cheaper, but they don't hear me....look right at me, but don't hear an F-in thing I say. No one knows my body as well as me, and I know from experience. I have been hoarding my meds in worry that this long space between paychecks would be tough...so I am okay for another week, except the RLS, but thankfully I have a friend with a solution.
On your side of this one, Loree! xxooxxoo

Lorelei Moon OMG! I totally empatihze about the "hoarding the meds" I've been really lucky with the one clinic that I've been going to & in fact they've been better than Kaiser in a lot of ways, 30 minute appointments, free acupuncture, actually managing my meds. I even had dental! But as far as specialists and availability of some of the meds, it's difficult. Unfortunately, now the funding's been cut so I haven't seen my Dr or refilled my meds in months.

Gail Monohon Hope it is gone today, Loree. I'm sorry it lasted so long, and glad your kitties made you feel better.

Phyllis Rose Wilbur Sorry about the migranes. I had a friend who had terrible headaches. Sleeping was about the only thing that reallly helped them.

Teresa M Walker Thats what I do......SLEEEEEEP. Doesn't always go away, but becomes bareable. I am soooo sorry, Boo! Get better NOW! XXOOXXOO
