Pretty in Pink

Ooooh, I just love new accessories and am always excited for someone else when they get them.

Hint: look up in the address bar. (You may have to refresh to get it to show up).

P.S. Am working on something bigger this morning, but simply must get other things done today.

P.P.S. Jumped on the trampoline with A, C, and K yesterday. It was so very fun!

Parental Rights

Anything that Little Miss Attila writes is good reading.

Prompted by a recent discussion, which is already linked several places in the 'sphere, Little Miss has written why she disagrees with Parental Notification Laws. I am in support of them, and I thought I would invite myself to the discussion between Right Wing Sparkle and herself. Polite of me, eh?

Questions for Cindy


Updated: Cindy's lyrical answers.

1. Do you ever have sudden and almost uncontrollable urges to frame a situation with words? How do you keep those thoughts until you are able to get them recorded?

2. You paint such lovely pictures with words, I am curious, do you have other creative outlets for your "vision?"

3. Which writers have moved you, inspired you, the most in your life?

4. You say on your profile that you are interested in incarnation. Tell me more.

5. If you could change one thing about Anne Lamott, what would it be? *

A New and Modern Leviticus

I forsee an evening planned to go to a local bookstore to listen to a reading. Afterwards, I will chat with the author as if old friends, even having coffee and discussing our God, our faith, our children, our lives.

Cindy is a a woman whose eyes see beyond the physical where even a piece of lint can have a lyrical story behind it.

See what I mean? This perspective keeps a "stay-at-home" mother sane.

Thanks, Cindy.

Just all the white chicks are doing dreads

Hi there, I'm Anne Lamott, author, activist, certifiable moonbat, a Christian who leaves room in her heart to hate George Bush. Maybe my readers remember this gem?

"So much has been stolen from us by Bush. A friend called & I remembered something she'd said reading an article about Hitler's affair with his niece. 'I have had it with Hitler!' Peggy said, throwing the magazine to the floor. And I have had it with Bush."
Or this one:
"John Paul II, for all of his disastrous policies, apologized a few years ago to the Muslim community. He said, in the presence of Muslims, Every single one of the Crusades was a mistake, & I am sorry. Then he went into a Mosque, & kissed the Koran. This sharp spiritual vision takes my breath away."
And it really seems to have worked!

The thing is, as a liberal Marin chick, I searched long & hard before settling on the single most unflattering hairstyle I could find. I think my dreads make me look like Halle Berry.

And white folks' dreads are unique, like something the plumber snaked out of your bath drain, or those spongy globs your cat coughs up. They also demonstrate your solidarity with the dispossessed. You too can have white dreads, it's easy!

  • 1. Don't wash or comb hair for 6 months.

  • 2. To promote matting, go down to beach every morning & flop about in sand like a spawning salmon. Certain beneficial organisms will take up residence in your hair, forming a synergistic follicular ecosystem.

  • 3. Once your dreads start to form crusted stalactites, you can shape them with a chisel or electric sander.
NOTE: For special occasions, you can buy them.

I posted part of this in the comments on ResurrectionSong:

It is indeed rare for a person to see someone at the very bottom of an abyss in life and to have the love, courage, strength, and grace to go into what they themselves cannot see or understand in order to bring whom they love back up into the sun and warmth of life.

Kris and I share everything without fear of judgement or condemnation. We rely on the unique gifts that we bring to the relationship to aid in understanding the world or situations or people and even ourselves, better and with more mercy, charity, forbearance, and compassion. We often say about one another that while I bring color to her spectrum, she delineates mine.

I consider myself a very strong person (those of you who read my blog from the beginning know why) and I really don't need many people, but I think I would truly suffocate if she wasn't breathing her soul into my atmosphere.

Tell it Like It Is

Pretension never appealed to me. "Straight up," "up front," "down to earth," "tell-it-like-it-is" has always been my personal preference. So, reading La Shawn has been a treat from day one.

I found her through ResurrectionSong. Her writing is like good cooking: hard to resist, savory and satisfying, and worth indulgence. So, when I skipped over to her place for a bit of tasty feed, I found this. Sooooooo well cooked, La Shawn. Thank you for being a voice of the Truth.

I have always enjoyed royalty, but when I skipped over to HRH's palace this evening, I fell down laughing. This is just one of the reasons I love reading The Queen.

Now, if I could only have gotten through to Diane Rehm's show this morning and told her that.....
