Creativity's Muse Awakens

Yet again.

Damn bitch wont let me rest. Anyhow, I saw this awesome turned-wood toothpick-holder-cup thing that BBC had made for one of his ladyfriends at the bank a little while back. I thought it was really nice, and decided I'd trade him craft for craft - even though he says I don't need to repay him or anything, but then it hit me...

WHAM

A pattern I'd seen of an "arrowheads" kind of dealiebop with various and sundry backgrounds and flying geese. I know BBC likes "southwestern", and this in my head "feels" southwestern without actually BEING southwestern, which is ok by me. Simple straight lines and yet complex enough to be intrinsically pleasing.

Gah, I hope he likes beige. I know he likes blue, but I sure hope he likes beige too, because this has "beigeness" written all over it in my head. Beige is a great color - it doesn't show cat hair very well!

So anyhow, I was up for like 3 hours last nite in a frenzy of compositional math, and now today my tummy feels oogie, my head hurts, I feel bloated and want to go curl up and die. Not that the 2 are at all related, I suspect the ooginess has more to do with my being bad and eating leftover stroganoff and mango sherbet.

Will post preliminary photos of the Muse's Inspiration once I've gotten all the fabrics together and something cut & pieced.

I really do hope he likes beige...

China takes lead over U.S.

They can do it in China - so why the hell can't we do it HERE?

Why is it so damn hard for us to enforce something like this? Like... if you no hable sufficient englais to make yourself understood - YOU DON'T GET TO WORK THE DRIVE-THRU AT MCD'S?

Or maybe - If you don't know enough english to process a simple order for coffee and a donut - you DON'T GET TO OWN A DUNKIN DONUTS FRANCHISE?

Or if you drive a cab - you best be able to speak totally intelligible English - or we pull your hack license?

China has the right idea. I don't agree with everything there - but THIS! This is a SUPERB idea.

Big Business does something right

Can we all give a rousing round of applause to Procter & Gamble, American Express, Sprint Nextel, Staples and General Motors please?

These fine companies did the RIGHT THING. They pulled all their advertising from the radio and TV programs hosted by that vile piece of human sludge - Don Imus.

MSNBC has also done the right thing. They have dropped their simulcast of his "show". Good for them. *applause*

It has come to my attention that this vile cretin is now holding a 40 hour "Radiothon" to raise money for "charity". I urge anyone who reads this to NOT contribute a dime to his effort. Despite the "good works" aspect of this, it's a stunt, and you can easily contribute DIRECTLY to the organizations that he claims to support (if they are ones you also support) without going through him. I would also urge any charity that he claims to support to REFUSE any tainted money from that vile, nasty, ugly, little man.

I would definately urge any WOMEN who have ever listened to his foul verbal diarrhaea to boycott his show and let CBS know that you will be writing to any remaining sponsors expressing your disgust with his misogynist nastiness and demanding they pull advertising.

There is nothing at all "funny" about what he and his vile little ugly producer said about the Rutgers players. There is nothing "funny" about calling ANY women "Ho's" - unless they actually HAVE chosen the oldest profession as their own. Unless Don Imus can show UNCONTESTABLE PROOF that these intelligent, talented, young women have actually taken money as compensation for performing sexual acts, then he needs to be silenced - PERMANENTLY.

I wonder if he has a daughter. I wonder if he'd still be shooting off his ugly, foul, vile mouth if someone raped her because that someone thought she's just a "ho" - not a human being - because Imus refers to women that way. THINGS like Imus need to be removed from this planet.

ARGH!!! Mousecicles!

Ok, Al Gore.
It's your fault the heat went out here at work too!

Just because I said so.

Now make with the "Global Warming", Mr. Smartypants.

(They just brought me a space-heater because the furnace went out here. I'm thinking of putting on my hat and gloves.)

Global WHAT, Mr. Gore?

It's fucking snowing.
It's April 10, and it's fucking SNOWING.

Fuck you, Al Gore. Go invent something, like a flowerbed heater.

My evil plot to take over my own livingroom has progressed nicely. I now have control of over 1/2 the area, (even DUSTED!!) and believe I can secure a substantial amount of the remaining insurgent pack-rat piles within a few weeks. I'm not in any great rush here, I'm only forcing myself to put in 15 minutes a day so I don't get all burnt out in one.

I had kind of planned to stop on the way home and get a pedicure, but with the SNOW, MR GORE, I don't want to be leaving the shop with sandals on, so I suppose I'll have to wait until the SNOW, MR GORE leaves.

Gah, I want to slap that smarmy, self-satisfied, LAWYER smirk off his face.

And dump this SNOW down his trousers.
Just to show him how fucking WARM it ISN"T.

I really didn't need this snow this morning, Mr. Gore. Can we like go back to "Global Winter" and let things warm up again?
