A lot of people feel W stole the elections, then proceeded to steal eight years; there are some things that can never be corrected, many lives shattered by having a buffoon for a president.

I know, MrP! I was listening to the media earlier going on about 'historic' because of the color, and had a moment of 'what?' because it is indeed his heart that shines through. I read his books and understand the importance of the racial issue in his election, but I personally think it is his light and heart that we need.
11:18 am

I hope and pray for his safety.....and that no foolish people are allowed to bring any harm to him or his family....

Hi feather
12:36 pm
MonkeyGames

No, OK, I usually don't bother with mascara... but I did get some about 9 years ago. Using that when we go to the opera every, ummm, 9 years.
12:36 pm
aslindy

OK, I use plain chapstick... I don't count that as makeup. It's more like lotion for your lips.
12:36 pm
featherbee

threw up on the way to the babysitter's today. had to turn right back around.
12:36 pm
MonkeyGames

It still looks OK, Peri...
12:36 pm
aslindy

oh, feather.... that's awful
12:36 pm
jmcnrick

there is chapstick with a pale color to it
12:36 pm
stidmama

*nodding head at old makeup comments* bacteria can grow quickly in that medium. dry cakes of blush might be okay, but not liquids and mascara
12:36 pm

Poor kid!
12:36 pm

doesn't matter, Monkey, throw it out

looks don't count for contamination, my dear.
12:36 pm

thanks for the sh6, never would have found it
12:37 pm

look and smell do not necessarily indicate contamination, monkey. be safe please (says the woman who has conjunctivitis from no one knows where)
12:37 pm
aslindy

you don't want bacteria in your eyes.
12:37 pm
stidmama

I could nap...
12:37 pm

9 years is a long time for any makeup, I don't like throwing stuff out but I don't want to get sick
12:37 pm
jmcnrick

me either peri!
12:37 pm
MonkeyGames

No! I won't! It is a set of colors that suit me, all of it powder. I will get more lipstick though if I ever go somewhere fancy again... and mascara...
12:37 pm
bichon

When I was young [many eons ago] I wore all sorts of eye make up. Now I rub my eyes so much from allergies the thought of ey makeup is repugnant
12:37 pm
MonkeyGames

OK, these are fair points, but this IS all powder and very dry.
12:38 pm
stidmama

powder should be okay, monkey. but yes, replace the mascara especially.
12:38 pm
featherbee

(ssshhh, i think i'd feel the same way monkey!)
12:38 pm

Many years ago, I began to think... "If women are the fairer sex, why are they the ones who wear makeup?"
12:38 pm

stid go and have a nap and come back later
12:38 pm

personally monkey I would be careful about things near your eyes and not worry so much for the rest
12:38 pm

Just some shades of eye shadow and some powder blush. Yes, don't worry, I would certainly replace any liquids or gels at this opint.

I was more pleased with the opening prayer than I thought I would be. Considering the bad press the guy had received. That's pretty generous from me, an agnostic
12:45 pm
stidmama

I thought the opening prayer was offensive, actually. Not what it could have been given the speaker, but still very obviously a slap in the face to people of other beliefs.
12:46 pm
featherbee

i wasn't able to pay enough attention to the opening one.
12:46 pm

Still, maybe too sharp a break from fundamentalism could shock people...? Need to ease into it? Being slightly facetious, of course...
12:49 pm

personal expressions of belief don't offend me - sponsored expressions of belief in public spaces do... it's hard to explain.

There was this orchestra. They set out to perform Beethoven's 9th Symphony. As many of you will know, there is a long section in which basses are not called for, so the bass players decided to abscond to the basement and have a few drinks. They attached, by means of a long string, a small bell to the sheet music so that when the appropriate sheet was turned over they would know to go back up. But they had a few too many drinks. So of course as the symphony approached the finale it was a very tense moment: it was the bottom of the ninth, the basses were loaded, and the score was tied.

Walter has in my opinion been handling this very well. He was warned that she was very ill and could die. He saw the body so he could understand more about it. But he is holding a lot in, and I have to guess what he's feeling.... but then he suddenly talks about it. He's doing OK, just working it through.

Sky News Latest - The ailing politician was evacuated by medical staff, a congressional aide said.

Mr Obama, who just hours before had been sworn in as the new American President, said his prayers were with Kennedy and his family.

Mr Kennedy, 76, is battling a life-threatening brain tumor.

The Massachusetts senator is the brother of the late President John F Kennedy and one of the Senate's most respected Democrats.

Senator Robert C Byrd has also been taken from the lunch after falling ill.

how's the glittery one?
3:10 pm
Haz1558

Here's my claim to Obama fame - taken from some notes I wrote in August 2006. ' Our last days in Kenya were spent relaxing in the hotel, although we managed to tumble upon the visit of a US senator, Barak Obama, who was staying in our hotel. We had taken the decision to explore a little of Nairobi, figuring that if we took no money with us stayed within walking distance of the hotel, on main thoroughfares, nothing too serious could befall us. We noticed a large crowd gathered around the railings of a park so naturally we decided to try to find out what was gong on. There were soldiers on horseback, crowds of dignitaries waiting around, lots of press photographers and a young tree sitting with a shiny spade at its base. A tree was obviously going to be planted by someone important and a passing Australian lady supplied the information that Barak Obama, whose father had emigrated from Kenya, was on a visit to the country. Fleets of cars arrived and from one stepped several ladies and little girls who had breakfasted at a table near us in the hotel. We had wondered who they were and now it all made sense! We watched the proceedings then finished our interrupted walk.

Later that day, as we relaxed around the pool, the Senator and his considerable entourage, including the obligatory bodyguards, met with local business men and politicians. This was important people watching and an unexpected bonus! The poolside restaurant proved to be a favourite meeting place for Nairobi business people and the hotel’s gym seemed to be popular with executives who arrived in suit and tie, their gym bag replacing the briefcase for a lunchtime appointment with exercise.'

3:13 pm

It was just interesting after that to keep hearing his name mentioned; we'd never heard of him before.
3:13 pm

And the rest is history.

" I knew him when..." . Hi Haz & Ata & Krista
3:14 pm

I rememb er the first time I heard of him...my very conservative boss was talking about this dynamic young democrat senator that she really admired..knew he had to be something special
3:14 pm
Krista

hey lynxxx
3:14 pm
Haz1558

I know. Husband claims to have met Bill Clinton as well. It's a bit tenuous - his plane was held up at Belfast airport to let Airforce One land, he watched him coming down the steps.

And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.

bichon, with regards to your profile - is lyme disease a problem in your area, and do you have to take extra precautions as you walk?
3:37 pm
stidmama

no, that is the saddest thing, it was a woman -- one who apparently chose "career over family" which is also valid, but she shouldn't be allowed to consider a woman who chooses family before career as somehow unfulfilled.
3:37 pm
stidmama

oh! thanks so much bichon
3:38 pm

Trif, not any more than anywhere else. We've never gotten it, but one of our dogs did [even with tick prevention].

the funny thing is, spiders never, ever bothered me, and now I will run on water to avoid them. and no, bichon, but then again, I wasn't looking for any. perhaps maybe I had the "flu" once, or was just extra tired, and never attributed it to the right place
3:42 pm
stidmama

thanks katie, I am getting better at articulating my rants (I hope) I used to get so worked up I couldn't say anyting!
3:43 pm

3:43 pm

Oh down, it wasn't THAT bad a week. I have now got my head round the work thing and have been back on it after two very bad days so next week should be better. Are you still getting on OK with it?
3:44 pm
stidmama

I was bit on the leg by a spider once when I sat down in my garden. Didn't know it until the next day when my whole body was stinging and the leg was numb. I was lucky. didn't go to the doc and recovered anyway. I HATE hospitals. Couldn't get out of them fast enough after the children were born. (but that's a rant for another day)
3:44 pm
BabbleRabble

I don't view what you said as rant; more outrage over the arrogance and ignorance of what people say
3:44 pm

well anything on the down side is good!!!!

No magic formula with it Ata, just good old fashioned eating healthy. When I stick to it I have always done really well with it.

I suppose health eating would NOT be the macaroons I nibbled earlier? *resolves to consume salad with supper*
3:46 pm

it just doesn't feel like hard work. Losing weight should be hard work!!

I think your appetite goes down as you lose weight and get used to it. Also I have got to the exercise section and as you lose weight you will become more active and earn more points.

but, i may have an undiagnosed heart condition, so maybe i will drop dead at a young age and be the first real family tragedy in ages
6:27 pm
Trifioso

anyway, the short story is that every morning she saw the same very, very distinguished looking man on the train, always impeccably dressed in sharp suits. he always stood on the train, and held the overhead strap. As he reached up, lovely and lace-trimmed panties would peek out of his trousers, just the teeniest bit. they were nice too - expensive silks, shiny satins....

and hurshy, if you have concerns about your heart, just get yourself to a doctor, and stop fantasizing about a tragic death, please
6:29 pm

and she would find herself remembering them - oh! the blue and white ones today...oh, we are back to the pink....
6:29 pm

it's just occasional chest pain and palpitations. probably nothing.
