Songs of the week
I was feeling generous, so here are two!
Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again? ~Winnie the Pooh
This is my 150th post! Whoo-hoo!! Let's see...I supposed to write something profound...
The beauty of blogging is that any post can later be edited or deleted. Like the one I wrote while UTPMS -- 'under the influence of PMS.' I debated deleting it -- after all, the occasional weepy sadness is a part of who I am, so the writing should also reflect that. The weather was to blame, too...
So, I finally got my bloody Mustang convertible back (it was in storage). Last fall it was vandalized - some f*$&wit cut the vinyl top and it's beyond repair. I am trying to sell it; the dilemma I was facing was whether or not I want to sell it "as is" for less, OR get it fixed and then sell it.
Trouble tagged me. So, here we go:

Meet Jimmy - the boy who would turn red and stammer at the sight of the girl who worked at the neighborhood music store; who asked me if he could live with me till he turns 37 (of course, honey); the supreme Pokemon expert, chess master, girl-magnet and prankster.
Un-freakin'-believable!! The worst thing is that PC is migrating to other countries. Even in Russia, where people are notoriously blunt, it's spreading like disease. In the very near future, I can just see a secret society reminiscent of Fahrenheit 451, where outcasts like myself will gather just to be able to freely draw anatomically correct cows and tell ethnic jokes without the fear of offending anyone. Talk about life imitating art... If you haven't read it already, read 1984, Animal Farm, Fahrenheit 451, and my favorite - Brave New World.
I already did a "facts" post back in December, but here's more anyway. Borrowed from Misha
I am a news junkie -- TV news, news websites, talk radio, magazines. There are several things, however, that annoy me about the news coverage:
Since 2000, US forests have expanded by an area larger than Delaware. - Jan. 2006 Smithsonian
The World Health Organization has launched a five-day polio immunization campaign in Somalia to vaccinate nearly one and a half million children under age five against the crippling disease, which is on the decline there.
