I think the money they raise should go toward causes and charites they believe in, or they should spend their campaign time actually working alonside their potential constituents (Former FL governor Bob Graham used to spend a day, think they should spend a week.) That form of political advertising would tell me more about a potential candidate than any negative capiagn ad, flyer in my mailbox or message on my answering machgine, all of which are ignored.

As long as said performer/s don't change who they are, I wish them much success. Some of my favorites that I would love to see achieve the success they deserve are Seven Nations, Paul Thorn, and The Weepies.

I have variations on the same dream: that I'm late or should be someplace else. I'm late for a class, but I can find/get into my locker that has the books I need, or I don't know what day it is and therefore which class I should be in. I hate ending up back in high school. Or I'm given a task at work that should take 15 minutes and I'm gone for hours because I end up in some tourist resort "next door" (there is no such thing in reality) and can't find an exit in the complex to get back to my job.

And occasionally, the naked dream. But I'm the only one that seems worried about it.

I'm sure these all have some deep psychological meanings and I'm probably better off NOT knowing what they mean.;-)

I've heard all the terms used, working in the veterinary industry. Most often, 'Mom' or 'Dad' is used in reference to the patient's owner/guardian. As long as an animal is properly loved and cared for, I don't think the terminology matters.

My pets and my flash drive. Maybe if disater strikes I can write about it and get something published. Beats the hell out of my current occupation.

If I manage to stay awake until the ball drops, it's a big deal. DH and I share a kiss, then it's usually off to sleep. I've been out on NYE before... never again.

The smell of fresh cut grass in the summer, the smell of clean kitty fur, said cat purring, quiet time spent writing and coming up with a great scene or charatcer, quiet companionship with friends and family, the usual...

If the prospects for finding a new job with comparable pay weren't so poor, I'd be considering the very thing right now. Fuck benefits and health coverage, who needs retirement if I don't fucking survive to see the end of the year from the physical exertion and stress?

Finish my book and bust ass to get it published, hoping it sells well. I have a lot of debt.

Movie theatre. I sunburn in ten minutes, so conceivably I could say 'both', but shivering with sunburn in a movie isn't any fun...

Only had it once, ten years ago in Scotland. Whiskey Mac. Nothing beats it. Can't find Stone's Ginger Wine in the States. I can't afford to fly to the UK just for this drink so I guess I'm to remain bereft the rest of my days.

No over-the-road playlist is complete without Golden Earring's Radar Love, though listening to it, especially late at night could leave to a speeding ticket. The whole Eagles "Desperado" album is a must, some Led Zeppelin, some Paul Thorn and maybe a little Bonnie Raitt to round things out.

I think that everything potentially has a scientific explanation, but there are levels we aren't ready/mature enough as a species to understand.

I still remember all the words to the song...

[Error: unknown template qotd]I bought some new shoes.
Aside from that, not much else was brilliant. Car's still dead, thumb's still ugly, story's not finished.
[Error: unknown template qotd]John Keats Ode on Melancholy

"Ay, in the very temple of delight
Veiled Melancholy has her sovran shrine,
Though seen of none save him whose strenuous tongue
Can burst Joy's grape against his palate fine;
His soul shall taste the sadness of her might,
And be among her cloudy trophies hung."

Which to me essentially means that without sadness we never can truly appreciate those moments of joy.

Plus, melancholy is an emotion strongly associated with April 15th here in the US.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Football, soccer, basketball, most team sports since I sucked at them and we didn't have an option for dressing out and getting cleaned up afterward in middle school. The rules of the games weren't explained very well and I just didn't care enough to try any harder. I loved gymnatics, even though I wasn't much good, and volleyball was one of the few team sports that I liked because I understood the rules and I was good enough at it to not look like a complete idiot playing.

I was working at the Fisheries Depratment. One of the guy's wife called and said something about a plane crash. We at first thought it was local, then we got more information. I went out into the shed and got the portable TV we used to show videos at meeting with and turned it on. We were in time to see the second crash and the towers collapse. We were all in total shock and the University saw fit to send us home for the day. I kept the TV on in the background for days, hoping that they would find someone alive in all the destruction. They never did.
