Tid bits

This is me avoiding a post about King D. I will need to pin it down soon, but right now I am listening to a most awesome song by Corinne Bailey Rae and it makes me happy and light...so I'm going with that.

My Dreamer called and asked me to come to a Women's Retreat at her Bible college. I like to please my Dreamer so I said yes. It is so important to her and she tells me all the time that she is praying for me. I can use all the prayer I can get and so I am grateful.

I suspect I will be uncomfortable most of the time. It is the type of place where people wear their so called Christian love on their faces with fake teethy smiles. They use those soft voices of understanding while privately judging you. They have the tv in the cafe set on Fox News.  Yes, it will be brutal. But I love her very much and I want her to know that I support her. I will probably talk more about it later.

Well, that wasn't very light, now was it.

The sun is shining after a cleansing rain and I am feeling good. I am happy. I am content. I spent time with my Diva last night and we laughed and laughed. She has an amazing sense of humour and I completely appreciate it. Her older sisters are coming home in a couple weeks and I do not look forward to the change in Diva's personality that comes with their presence. She become a little beligerent and is demanding of their attention. I have so much more fun with her when its just us.

I worry about the Wisconsin unions. Someone told me this morning the teachers there get paid $80,000+ a year and they should have their pay cut. Now, honestly, who would really believe that? I looked it up online at teacherportal.com and showed them that Wisconsin teachers average salary is $46K and they have already conceded pay. But really, why do people believe everything they hear on Fox news? Think People!

Alright, that's all I've got today.
Over and Out.

Oh'I was with ya, until you got to the fox news part. I would rather be water-boarded. Glad you liked the song!

Serenity now....I'm sure The Dreamer means her smiles when she smiles them and therefore I will think it's a good thing she's there in the middle of all that becasue maybe she has something genuine to share.
do you remember the tv harvest? i always think of that when i think of mass religion.
