ever try to kill a rabbit by throwing sticks at it? today in my primitive skills workshop i tried but missed. guess i'll need to practice if i don't want to starve when babylon falls. i also tasted delicious stinging nettle. my mouth is still tingling.
Knowing that kids eight years younger than me are being sent to Iraq didn't do it, but learning that Amber Lee Ettinger is younger than I am finally made me feel old. Again.

Guys! We can all make mixtapes of mp3s we're digging now and share them.
eventually.. I'll find a routine or something.. but not sure when that'll happen... but basically.. I've updated fledgling again... there should be slightly regular updates for another week or so... then I might get lazy again...
maybe I should get one of my housemates to just literally poke me until I update it. ... or not...

Good Friday in my heart! Fear and affright! My thoughts are the Disciples when they fled, My words the words that priest and soldier said, My deed the spear to desecrate the dead. And day, Thy death therein, is changed to night.
Then Easter in my heart sends up the sun. My thoughts are Mary, when she turned to see. My words are Peter, answering, ‘Lov’st thou Me?’ My deeds are all Thine own drawn close to Thee, And night and day, since Thou dost rise, are one.
I think we should put this up or a a vote. If some people don't like comments (I, myself, might be in that boat) then we should get rid of them. Anyone up for making a poll?

Odd, isn't it? Why, just last night I used the comments feature to remark how clever you had been with your "MCC coolness relief" post. And then in a matter of hours the comments just up and leave?
I am left with only one solution - the COMMENTS BEAST must have come and taken them away!
I can't get the comments feature to work. SASHA? maybe you should give it a try.
I have to run - back to work after a battle with a nasty FLU BEAST.

Once again, I am reminded that if you buy something with a coupon from CVS, then return it, they give you all your money back in cash, even the amount that you saved by the coupon. Bottle of St. Ives Face Apricot Scrub by bottle of St. Ives Apricot Scrub, I will come by unearned wealth.
And this occurred even after I told the clerk that I had used a coupon so I shouldn't get that dollar back. But seriously, CVS, if you want the dollar, just ask.
But how is CVS going to ask without the commenting function? I feel like this happens every six months or something. Meg, can you fix this again?
“Researchers have studied men with cross-gender names like Leslie,” Dr. Evans explained. “They haven’t found anything negative — no psychological or social problems — or any correlations with either masculinity or effeminacy. But they have found one major positive factor: a better sense of self-control. It’s not that you fight more, but that you learn how to let stuff roll off your back.”
Like many school-age children in Syria, Serena is forced to wear this totally dork-ass tie by her mom who never understands her and doesn't even think about how much it makes her look like a total loser. God mom, this is so not cool.
MCC coolness relief kits can help. Serena will receive a pack of cigarettes, a copy of Seventeen magazine and a black eyeliner pencil.
