Boogertown, NC.
Posted by Hello
Saw this, am glad A & I didn't break up that way. Perhaps a tad bit insensitive?

And: Am headed off for Turkeyday with *my* family, at least some of whom are from Clover, SC (south of Charlotte.) Mapquest, however, has informed me of the existence of another well named town, not too far.

I'll hook up the link in a sec.

Perhaps this is one of the casualties of the English/Metric Wars...

"I just recoiled. It was only about 2 meters away from me, the water was crystal clear and it was as clear as the nose on my face," Howes said, referring to a distance of six feet.

Scariest. Distance. Ever.

OK - this is a comment i typed for the following question, found by clicking the {next blog} button at the top right of the page. Big Red Button

"I consider myself to be a very even-keeled person, and relatively difficult to piss off. However, being dismissed (especially rudely) is enough to make me go postal.

I sing in a community choir, and occasionally sit next to a prima-donna tenor. (I firmly believe that all choruses have the equivalent: somebody who is only in the group because of the solos that s/he gets, and who believes that the group would collapse into nothing withour his/her presence... you know that guy, right?)

Anyhoo... the most recent time that this button was pushed was about a month ago. I'm at rehearsal for the first time in a month, after 3 weeks in Southern Illinois. I'm using all my singing skillz, l33t as they were. He shhh'ed me, and waved his hands in my face. {Whoosh} Button pushed. I nearly hauled off & punched him in the nose.

Best definition of Big Red Button: "treat me like a kid"

(i'm in my frickin' 30's!) {grrr} (pisses me off just thinking about it.)

(because I try to have something at least a little fun in every post...
Scary Go Round I love this well drawn, if occasionally macabre, web comic. Perhaps it's all the girls in coffee-house glasses.... me-OW.

So... what have *i* been up to, since my last (rather depressing) post?

Updated my profile: music, and books.

Veteran's Day Post


Currently, I am listening to BNL "Another Postcard." I'll find that link for you in a minute. It's a remarkably fun, quirky, and just plain silly song, that makes me happy. But seriously... its not how i should be feeling.

A & I are no longer, as of last night.

(it'll take a while to finish divying up our stuff, and my ass to hit the curb... but for the most part, it's over.)

There are only two thing that really make it a little better for it. (well, besides supportative friends and family, of course.)

1) Earlier in the day, sent me one of those: where the hey are you? emails. I (uncharacteristically) <> clicked on it... and found that my high school crush had FINALLY signed up for the service. It was apparently last year sometime (The fact that it took me this long to find that our is proof that i really didn't check religiously, I suppose.) It was good to a) find out that she wasn't dead, at least at the time of the update. and b) she apparently married her high school sweetie. Why is that good, you may (rightfully) ask? Well, because they were dating before I entered her life. Therefore, you get to continue the whole 'bad-timing', or 'i-was-realllly-close', or my favorite, 'cursed-by-the-gods'

2) the other thing, which (sadly) makes me feel as though i have power over this thing?
I have a history (long untested) of holidays being either really good, or really bad. A & I started going out (9 years ago) after a Halloween party.

Happy Veteran's Day, evvvvverybody!

Song that popped up as I was in the middle of number 1:

Indigo Girls (Kid Fears) Little more mood appropriate.

Edited - to add label and post title

Ciao for niao

(in honor of our new prez... he has a MANdate....)

I wouldn't have thought that would have sold well in Middle America.... but whateva.

I'm off to have a woMANdate! Ciao!
So: 4 more years. Isn't THAT a kick in the teeth. The female role models in my life are taking it sorta hard... i figure, we'll see how it goes. And there's a 90% chance he won't be re-elected president in 4 years.

Just wrapped up Fable as a big-ass goody 2-shoes Spellwarrior. Married 5 times... i ROXOR
