5:11 pm - New Dame Darcy purse!

Here's a few pics of a *fabulous* Dame Darcy purse I scored on ebay lately:

6:31 pm - This little ditty was just too funny to pass up...
Breaking news - Fire Damages Presidential Library, Washington, DC

A tragic and sad fire has destroyed the personal library of President
George W. Bush. Both of his books have been lost.

The president is reportedly devastated - apparently, he had not finished
coloring the second one.

8:43 pm - It was one of those all-too-rare and fleeting moments...
We were resting in bed, with the puppy resting quietly between us, and sounds of 'Mira' echoed throughout the house. It was one of those all-too-rare and fleeting moments when I actually felt content...as if 'life is good'.
Suddenly, the pup jumps onto my head on her way to leaping to the floor...she then carries off a pair of my hosiery in her mouth, undoubtedly to chew another dozen holes in them. Thunder crashed loudly as pouring rain began to fall outside...and hubby began to snore- *loudly*.
Ah, well. It *was* one of those all-too-rare and fleeting moments...

current mood: blah

4:16 pm - I've figured out what began the decline of our 'civilization'...
...if you can call it that.
The catalyst (imo)? People are no longer versed in the art (or science?) of debate. They are either innocently ignorant or just deliberately ignorant. It prolly shouldn't surprise me, since it's just a symptom of our society's lack of interest in history/the past, and lack of interest in what defines a civilized society. It's no wonder we have become so polarized in this country, and have turned into some savage, angry, rabid mob, unwilling to listen to each other without taking personal offense and/or getting violent. "I may vehemently disagree with what you have to say, but I would defend to the death your right to say it". I forget who said that quote, but it defines pretty much how I feel about public debate. To me, that quote also defines what freedom of speech in this country should be all about. That means not taking personal offense because I disagree with your opinion, and that means not demonizing me, or anyone, because you disagree...
'Nuff said. I'm outta here for now...seeking some sense of sanity left in this f-ed up world.

No matter what your opinion of the proposed war with Iraq is, let's consider this:
If our (so-called) 'president' dislikes living in the White House so much, then perhaps he should MOVE the hell out?!
Contrary to popular belief, our nations capital is in Washington, DC- *not* Texas.

4:45 pm - Article from todays Detroit News

I don't want to go off on some political rant or discussion, but this kind of stuff *really* peeves me. Some greedy jackass doesn't want to comply with the law. 'I might lose some money if I comply with the law'...Aw, poor baby. My heart bleeds for ya, pal- NOT! Gee- how 'bout if we allow builders to build apartments that won't allow black people in? (like a really loud siren that goes off when a black person goes near one of the doorways, perhaps? And how 'bout doors that won't open for a black person, even with a key?) That's tantamount to what this particular jerk is trying to do. The government should not only halt construction, but should also throw this dumbass in jail and fine him *heavily*, IMO.
::end of rant::

Wow- i have just spent so much time web surfing and commenting on other journals that hours seem like minutes! I just realized that the travel channel is having an Egypt theme week, and i just missed half of a great special on Egyptian religion and tombs...darnitol! Well, the company picnic was today, and not much else happened (no news is good news, as they say), so i suppose it's just as well. I just don't want to neglect this journal (as i sadly have neglected my other LJ account).

current mood: curious

Actually, i probably should feel more melancholy than i do, considering the fact that it is raining furiously outside, and that i mainly did "busywork" today at my job (giving me busywork either becaus of not having enough work for us to do may= layoffs in the horizon, or that my boss doesn't think i can handle much more than that). Running to the car from the restaurant in an attempt to avoid the downpour actually felt invigorating...It seems that strangers suddenly feel a kinship with other people when everyone is making the mad dash to their cars in a storm, and the children seem only partially afraid, whilst also partially in awe of the storm...
As far as the job goes, i welcomed a break from the usual pressure for production quotas, and an opportunity to organize an office that had been sorely neglected by slobs for a long time (since before i worked in the department). I quite enjoyed being given free reign to organize things- it gives me a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction in seeing tangible results. I need to be able to do that at work more often. It's also good for me to get in the 'organization' mindset before i get home, so i can keep the momentum going when i arrive home. Living and working in chaos has, to some degree, contributed to my depression.
I am less lonely than yesterday, but i sure do miss my puppy. I just have to hang in there til October for the new pup...
Time now to get off the 'puter and keep up that momentum. I still won't be 'whistling while i work', but i'll be enjoying the 'music'/ atmosphere of the thunderstorm which is occurring outside my window right now...

Our hearts are torn
from the day we're born
and attachments form
which cannot last
no thing stays the same
no one is to blame
we are prisoners
of the past
The tempestuous
seas of ignorance
and the howling winds
of fate the duality
of the things we see
as we're tossed between
love and hate
These illusions scream
"this is not a dream!"
and it truly seems
to be so
though this shadowplay
may be here today
when tomorrow comes
it will go
Is there clarity?
Hope and charity?
Will the truth be known
to us all?
Is there no relief
from this misbelief?
Are we paying still
for the Fall?
What reality is our destiny?
Will we ever be what we're
meant to be?
Must we suffer from this
insanity temporarily
or for eternity?
Aaaaah! Maya...
We are manifest of a
life that is blessed
We are rays of light
from the sun
We are waves upon
a living ocean
We are one with all
We are one
We are one...
om mani padme hum...

8:37 pm - Why would an art lover rarely buy artwork?...
Well, as an HGTV junkie, i had time to indulge my addiction over the long holiday weekend. I particularly *love* the craft programs (and the decorating programs). Love checking out all those nifty craft ideas (and decorating ideas) that i'll never have time to try, much less translate into something gothy :). Actually, it's *disturbing* how domesticated i have become since being married...but i digress...The crafting shows frequently feature artisans, and i began pondering why, as a supporter of the arts, don't i have other artists creations collected and displayed in my home. The only answer i came up with is the fact that i pretty much refuse to buy anything which i feel i am capable of creating for myself- which i realize is *quite silly*, since i will prolly never be able to devote that much time to creating artistic projects, even if i was capable. Mebbe hubby's Scottish (frugal) side is rubbing off on me? :). Or, mebbe there's way too much insipid crapola being passed off as "art"- particularly in the mainstream (ex: at many galleries, which are basically run on the buddy system...or at least a guild system)? And much of the insipid crapola is accompanied by *huge* pricetags... I think the latter reason is the most likely explanation. This isn't to say i never buy other artist's works of art- I certainly have purchased works in the past that really strike a chord with me, and art that is functional as well as beautiful, and art that i have absolutely *no* talent for (ceramics, metal work, wood work,...the list of things that i have no talent for is rather *large* :) heh). I wish i could afford to have more historic works of art around me. I do the best i can, but the most i can afford are (rather cheapie) reproductions...Ah, well...i think i'm suffering from hgtv withdrawal already....must..get..back..to...my...tellie...now... :)
