Okey dokey:


A few Blogthings, because you can never have too many:

You Are Chopsticks
People see you as exotic, unusual, and even a bit intimidating.
You are a difficult person to figure out.

In truth, you try to live a very simple life.
But most people are too frenzied to recognize the beauty of your simplicity.

You Are a Reluctant Shopper
You really don't enjoy shopping. For you, it's just another chore.
You approach shopping systematically. You research what you're going to buy and come prepared with a list.

Of all the types, you are the most likely to not buy things you don't need.
You try to de-emphasize stuff in your life. You find shopping and buying things to be a rather empty experience.

(So true it's frightening!)

There Are 1 Gaps in Your Knowledge

Where you don't have gaps in your knowledge:



With only a couple of days left, Team Coast Guard only needs about $150 to push us over the $2,000 mark for Project Valor-IT. If three of you donate $25 each or more, I'll match it with $25 each of my own. Between you and me, we can make this happen. We can do it, okay?

Cool quiz:

Your result for The Harry Potter Husband Test...

Mrs. Bill Weasley

Your perfect HP man is Bill Weasley.

You like guys who are cool. And not cool in that fake, dicky way, but actually cool. He's so cool that they couldn't find any actor to adequately portray him, so they decided to just leave him out of the movies rather than risk not doing justice to his coolness. He's like the Chuck Norris of Harry Potter: plain freaking awesome. When Voldemort says "You-Know-Who", he's talking about Bill Weasley.

In another very cool quiz, I find I'm definitely a right-brained person:

You responded as a right brained person to 15 questions, and you responded as a left brained person to 3questions. According to the Hemispheric Dominance test, you use your right brain the most. The summary briefly describes your dominance type.

Some of the traits associated with the right side of the brain are listed in the table. Not all of the traits will apply to you. Remember, we use both side of our brain, but your right sides gets the most exercise.

Go here to find out what it all means for you... and holy crap is this spot-on for me:

If you are predominantly right-brained, you may also have trouble outlining (You've probably written many papers first and outlined them latter because an outline was required). You're the student who needs to know why you are doing something.

(A tip of the cap to Joanie!)

Oh, sure. I go ahead and order this little gem, which I LOVE, and looks snazzy as hell on the shoulder of the snappy teal trapeze dress I just bought, and now the designer comes up with this, which I'm lusting over with all my heart.

Ahem. Christmas list. Hint, hint, hint...

(P.S. Accessoire shipped really fast, and I'm very pleased with the quality of the pin I bought. I'll definitely be a repeat customer.)

While you're celebrating all the things you're thankful for this year, drop a few bucks here in thanks for the men and women who've served this country so well and could use a hand in return.

Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!


Here's a new meme:

The meme is simple - go to the 6th file of photos on your computer. Choose the 6th photo. Post it.

This is Curacao on December 13, 2006 -- one of my many cruises with The Princess Mom.

As Helen says:
PS-I tag anyone who wants to do this, but please leave a message in the comments telling me you've done the meme. It's a pretty cool meme, and I am one nosy bitch who'd love to see your photos and will be coming by.
Me, too.

Saw this little test about the MMPS profile of my in a couple of places:

ISTP - The Mechanics

The independent and problem-solving type. They are especially attuned to the demands of the moment are masters of responding to challenges that arise spontaneously. They generally prefer to think things out for themselves and often avoid inter-personal conflicts.

The Mechanics enjoy working together with other independent and highly skilled people and often like seek fun and action both in their work and personal life. They enjoy adventure and risk such as in driving race cars or working as policemen and firefighters.

Oddly, my blog doesn't match my own personality type. Go figure.

Because I'm into book memes lately, here's one from CrankyLitProf:
–Share seven random or weird Book Facts about yourself.
–Then tag seven other people.
–Notify the seven others that they have been tagged.
  1. I am RARELY found without a book or a magazine in my purse. I get antsy if I don't have reading materials with me.
  2. I have bought seven copies of Life of Pi thus far, and I can't seem to keep one on my own bookshelf. I keep sharing them with others because I love that book so much.
  3. I read in bars.
  4. My friends all know not to talk to me in a bar when I'm down to the last eighth of a book, as I am compelled to finish and get really cranky if not allowed to finish.
  5. I can blast through half a dozen books in a weekend (but I don't get anything else done when that happens).
  6. I once bought books for sixty kids. I'll do it again some time, too. That was WAY too much fun.
  7. I vividly remember getting my very first library card and the day I was allowed to go to the library on my own for the first time.

That's all for today. I'm outta here.

Oops! One more thing. I had dinner at this terrific restaurant last night, but the thing that entranced me about it the most was that it had this cool hand dryer in the restrooms. Holy moly! I want one for every room in my house that has a sink in it!

That Dyson guy is a genius.


Tammi got tagged by Army Wife with a book meme:
The rules are: Pass it on to five other bloggers, and tell them to open the nearest book to page 56. Write out the fifth sentence on that page, and also the next two to five sentences. The CLOSEST BOOK, NOT YOUR FAVORITE, OR MOST INTELLECTUAL!
The book is "The Granny" by Brendan O'Carroll:
She spent a moment thinking about Frankie, then she climbed the stairs with a heavy heart, but brightened when she saw Pierre standing in the bedroom wearing only a pair of g-string underpants, which made him look a little like an under-nourished sumo wrestler. They made love for three and a half hours, and Agnes Brown entered her forty-ninth year a satisfied woman.

* * * * *

With just five weeks left to the due date of her first birth, Cathy was excited. She was also looking forward to being a mother. She also hoped the baby would improve things and bring her and Mick closer together.
Heh. I love me some Brendan O'Carroll.

Tag your own selves. So there.

Seems to me the wrong guy is going by the name of Narcisse here. And that mother should have her head examined.

Ear Worm of the Day (inspired by "The Chiselers"... and you'll just have to read the book. See page 126, and just try and keep a straight face.):

I'll be giggling about this all night.

Have you donated to Valor-IT yet? If not, why not... and don't forget my challenge!

Brawndo??? Hard to believe anybody would actually buy such stuff, but.... Heh.

An extensive new research study has found that unhappy people watch more TV while those consider themselves happy spend more time reading and socializing.

Drew Peterson continues his campaign to pollute the potential juror pool. The man couldn't get any more offensive if he tried.

In order to bring real change to Illinois, the public needs to get a lot angrier than it is.
You can say that again.

Alan Keyes never ceases to amaze me. Just when you think he's faded out of the picture, he pops back up again.

Have you taken me up on the challenge yet? I'll extend the offer until I have at least three more of you to match.

"I Love This Bar"

We got winners, we got losers
Chain smokers and boozers
And we got yuppies, we got bikers
We got thirsty hitchhikers
And the girls next door dress up like movie stars

Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this bar

We got cowboys, we got truckers
Broken-hearted fools and suckers
And we got hustlers, we got fighters
Early birds and all-nighters
And the veterans talk about their battle scars

Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this bar

I love this bar
It's my kind of place
Just walkin' through the front door
Puts a big smile on my face
It ain't too far, come as you are
Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this bar

I've seen short skirts, we got high-techs
Blue-collar boys and rednecks
And we got lovers, lots of lookers
And I've even seen dancing girls and hookers
And we like to drink our beer from a mason jar

Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this bar
Yes I do

I like my truck (I like my truck)
I like my girlfriend (I like my girlfriend)
I like to take her out to dinner
I like a movie now and then

But I love this bar
It's my kind of place
Just trollin' around the dance floor
Puts a big smile on my face
No cover charge, come as you are
Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this bar
Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this bar

We got divorcees and a big bouncer man
An old jukebox and a real bad band
We got waitresses and we got barflies
A dumb-ass and a wise-guy
If you get too drunk just sleep out in your car

Reason number 672 why

Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this bar
Play it on out boys
Beer-thirty's over
Got to take it on home

Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this bar
I just love it
I've known and loved a joint or two like that. (Yeah. I have my classy moments.)

Have YOU read every blog? (Holy cats, did he put me in some fine company!)

Quote of the Day:
One of these days, the stars and the planets, as well as my internet connection and my health, will all align perfectly. Mercury will be in retrograde and the weather will be balmy and breezy. I’ll win the lottery and build a special room with excellent feng shui, perfect lighting and Antonio Banderas wallpaper. Then, I’ll be able to write more consistently.
Yep. That's an excuse I can get behind.

I'm really excited because Team Coastie is growing by leaps and bounds:

DetailsSoldiers Angel - Holly Aho
DetailsLeslie's Omnibus
DetailsBrown Hound
DetailsThe American Pundit
DetailsThe Political Jungle
DetailsPirate's Cove

We've about doubled Holly's and my initial donations, but we want MORE.

Holly has a list of demands here:
1. Publicly admit the Coast Guard team is a formidable competitor (trackback to this post for proof)
2. Watch The Guardian (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0406816/)
3. Have 4 new donations to your team today (use links below), and encourage donations to the Coast Guard team for the rest of the day today.
  1. But of course they are!
  2. Dudes, if I had a television and VCR/DVD player, I would. Is it okay if I just watched the clips on IMDB?
  3. Here's my very own challenge! For the first four of my readers who donate $25 or more and join Team Coastie today, I will match each one with $25 of my very own. C'mon! How often can you double the value of your own donation?
BTW -- Here are a few examples of what the Coast Guard has been up to lately. Show'em some love, will you?


Update: My colleague Andrew made a deal -- he donated to Valor-IT, and I matched him here as well at Valor-IT! One down, three to go. (C'mon. Make me spend more money!)


Desert Cat, he makes me laugh!

I always wondered why only girls were targeted for this vaccine. This is very good news, indeed.

Whoa, Nelly!

Out of the blue today I got a text message from an old friend who I haven't heard from in at least a couple of years.

This is a girlfriend who I traveled with extensively when we were both showing cats.

Who remained my friend after we both stopped showing.

Whose company I cherished.

Who loved my mom (who always said Cheryl was her favorite of all my friends).

Who I helped move from Gray's Lake, IL to Miami, FL with an ancient and arthritic chocolate Labrador Retriever and a stone deaf blue-eyed white American Shorthair cat -- in the middle of August.

Yeah. That kind of great girlfriend.

Time, distance, a lost cell phone (mine), a couple of moves (hers) and pure laziness on both our parts have found us out of communication... but not out of each other's hearts.

Tonight I have to tell her about this. And this. Geeze! I'm not looking forward to this, even if I am delighted that the doors of communication are back open. Wish me luck. And a BIG box of Kleenex.

Tootin' the Horn

Have you donated to Project Valor-IT via the Coasties' team button yet?

If not, here's a little inspiration.

I dare ya not to have a tear in your eye and a spirit of generosity in your heart by the time you're done.... And do like Chuck says -- sit on your hands through the whole thing.

Now hit the button below and make me proud.



I had an IM chat with this lovely lady today, and, by golly, we're going to be roomies at BlogHer.

I'm Going to BlogHer '09

I imagine it'll be like a blogmeet on anabolic steroids -- bigger, more muscly and a lot more intense. Can't wait!

I love Ed Koch:
It was shocking to learn, “Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson Jr. had to gather the chief executives of the nine biggest American banks and cajole them into accepting about $25 billion each in new capital. But having pleaded with the banks to take the money, and putting no government officials on bank boards, the government had little power to tell them how to spend it. Treasury officials also refused to tell banks to reduce their dividends or to increase their lending by any specific amounts.”

I find it incredible that this is happening and no one is calling foul.

Where are all the hotshots who supported Paulson in his psyching us all out by conveying that if we did not follow his plan, we would find ourselves in another Great Depression?

Why aren’t they at the very least denouncing what is now happening? We are keeping alive, in addition to banks, other institutions that have done a terrible job and were greedy.
Everyone is lining up to get their federal handout.

AIG has come back for more and is to receive a total of $150 billion. The three American car companies, General Motors, Chrysler and Ford, have received $25 billion and want another $25 billion of taxpayers’ money.

Why not let them be bought by others in bankruptcy? There are those who say we are bailing out companies in order to prevent massive layoffs. In my view, those layoffs will come sooner or later anyhow because those companies are run by incompetents and no longer able to compete, while foreign companies like Toyota, manufacturing their cars in the U.S., are selling them and not seeking to be bailed out.

They make cars Americans want to buy.
Too right.

So part of the Palin smear was a hoax? That still doesn't wipe out this damning with faint praise. McCain owes Palin a big apology. As does the MSM.

Don't worry. I'm not holding my breath. And, like Baldilocks, I'm truly disgusted with McCain.

It's that time of year again -- Soldiers' Angels need your help in order to be able to provide laptops with voice-control software, Wii game systems and personal GPS devices to disabled military personnel.

Laughing Wolf gives you some background on how Project Valor-IT got started here.

As for me, since I've lived near the ocean and on Lake Michigan, this year I'm joining the Coasties' team:

Right now it's just me and Holly Aho. Frankly, I couldn't be in finer company. Unless, of course, you care to join us.

I don't care whether you donate five bucks or five thousand. Just donate what you can, please.


If you're like me, you hate, hate, HATE the fact that things like erectile disfunction drugs are advertised during prime time.

If you hate that, you'll hate this even more.


AD has gifted me with an ear worm and a sight it'll take days to scrub from my psyche. Yeesh!

My BlogDaddy calls my reaction to the news of the potential siezure of IRAs and 401ks "hysteria," but then he handed me back the reasons for exactly why it's not:
“From where I sit that’s just crazy,” said John Belluardo, president of Stewardship Financial Services Inc. in Tarrytown, New York. “A lot of people contribute to their 401(k)s because of the match of the employer,” he said. Belluardo’s firm does not manage assets directly.

Higher-income employers provide matching funds to employee plans so that they can qualify for tax benefits for their own defined-contribution plans, he said.

“If the tax deferral goes away, the employers have no reason to do the matches, which primarily help people in the lower income brackets,” Belluardo said.
I don't know about you, but my employer matches a whole hell of a lot more than $600 a year, and I certainly don't want to lose that. Neither should you. However...
Under Ghilarducci’s plan, all workers would receive a $600 annual inflation-adjusted subsidy from the U.S. government but would be required to invest 5 percent of their pay into a guaranteed retirement account administered by the Social Security Administration. The money in turn would be invested in special government bonds that would pay 3 percent a year, adjusted for inflation.
In addition, my current contribution to my 401k is strictly voluntary. I certainly don't want the government telling me I have to contribute 5% of my salary to a fund run by those most altruistic folks in DC to manage for my future. Oh, wait. We are already required to fork over a large chunk of our income every year to Social Security... and we all know how well that seems to be working.

$80 BILLION of our own money they're trying to take away, boys and girls. Wrap your head around that one for a while. And remember that it's people in the lower income brackets that'll be hurt the most.

Make this an opt-in program for those folks who don't want to be responsible for their own futures, and I've got no problem with this. But for those of us who choose to steer our own destinies, no thanks.

And since I haven't done a Blogthing in a while:

What Your Home Says About You

You come across as very intellectual. People take your wisdom seriously.

Your hygiene is passable, but you may be hiding some dirty secrets.

You are a very domestic person. You enjoy decorating, cooking, and making things homey.

You are not a very nurturing person. You have enough trouble taking care of yourself.

You feel settled in your life. You have enough time to focus on little details.

You are not a very self sufficient person. You depend on others more than you realize.

Your friends see you as accommodating, peaceful, and forgiving.

But I'm not done decorating yet, either.

Oh, what the hay. Here's one more:

The Part of You That No One Sees

You are balanced, peaceful, and sincere.

You're the type of person who goes along to get along.

And you're definitely afraid of rocking the boat.

Underneath it all, you fear your world falling apart.

You'll put up with a situation that you don't like in fear of changing it.

Disruptive and forceful people intimidate you - and sometimes exploit you.


Couldn't resist. Here's one more:

You Are Grape

You are bold and a true individual. You are very different and very okay with that.

People know you as a straight shooter. You're very honest, even when the truth hurts.

You are also very grounded and practical. No one is going to sneak anything by you.

People enjoy your fresh approach to life. And it's this honesty that makes you a very innovative person.



Desert Cat linked to an article that stood my hair on end:

Democrats in the U.S. House have been conducting hearings on proposals to confiscate workers’ personal retirement accounts — including 401(k)s and IRAs — and convert them to accounts managed by the Social Security Administration.


I'll cash those accounts out, take the tax hit, and stuff every single dime under my mattress before this happens to MY money.

Bend over and grab your ankles. The redistribution of wealth is just beginning.

It's going to be a LONG four years.

BlogHer '09 In Real Life

Much as I love my Boys in Blog, I'm thinking I just may have to attend BlogHer 2009, as I missed the last one held in my own back yard.

Since I won't want to miss a minute of the action, I'm thinking of booking a room. Anyone interested in sharing?


I have only one response to this, and that is this. 'Nuff said.

For all you guys who ever needed an excuse, memorize this phrase: "alternating intermittent exotropia." (I'm pretty sure that this guy coined that handy medical term.)

One more thing you'll have to worry about if you're driving in or around Chicago any time during the next four years:
If you see a motorcade with police cars, black SUVs and guys with sunglasses talking into their cuffs, don't try to cut it off.

Baldilocks has a point:
I call on Captain John S. McCain, USN (ret.), Republican, Senior Senator from Arizona, to put a stop to the public smearing of your erstwhile running mate, Governor Sarah L. Palin, Republican from Alaska.
I don't care what your political affiliation, this is just sour grapes and crappy politics. At a time when the Republican party should be facing the fact that they have serious work to do to regain credibility with their base, there is no place for this junior high back-biting. It does nothing to help their image.

Mr. McCain, it's time to put a halt to this. It's those ribs that should be barbequed; not your former running mate.

P.S. -- This is disingenuous and self-serving, but it doesn't work because she smirks her way through the entire interview. Can you say "bitter bitch"?


Mmmmmmmmmm... BACON! (Egad.)

I giggled myself silly over this. It's certainly one of my favorite ad campaigns.

Pedal to the Metal

I've been working on a novel on and off for a couple of years. Either I need to finish the sucker or quit. I need a really big kick in the butt, so here's your chance. Give it up, or keep on going?

Set in the world of cat shows, a mystery, and here I am plopping you right in the middle of the whole darned thing (right in the middle of the 1990's cat show world):

“Oh, Dahling, I had no idea you were this forceful,” Tish murmured in my ear. “Quite luvely, actually. Dottie gave me no clue.”

“Oh, Darling, before you arrived today I had no idea you were a man, much less gay, actually,” I simpered back insincerely.

Tish’s head whipped up, he regarded me solemnly for a moment, and then a big grin split his face and I got a glimpse of a gold tooth. “Oh, Sweetheart, Dottie likes you, but does she really know just what you’re made of?”

“Hell, Tish, I don’t know what I’m made of, but I think we’re going to find out together. How does that suit you?”

“Like my favorite Calvin Klein jeans,” he replied.

To write, or not to write?

This old meme has been making circles back around the blogosphere, and since I didn't do it last time...

My band? Retail Testing
Our album? A Tree At All
The cover?

Wanna make your own? Here are the rules swiped from Tammi and Rave:

1. Go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The First random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2. Go to random quotations: http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3

The last four words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album. If you want to do this again, hit refresh to generate new quotes, because clicking the quotes link again will just give you the same quotes over and over again.

3. Go to Flickr's 'explore the last seven days.' Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover. Put it all together, that's your debut album.

There ya go!


My bloggity buddy Moonbeam McQueen upped the ante and added two new steps to the meme:

4. Go to Blogger. Click on “Blogs of Note.” Then, click on “Next Blog.” The title of the first English language blog you see is the title of your album’s upcoming, chart busting, #1 (with a bullet) hit song.

5. Finally, go to the Rock Star Name Generator to find out what your band member name is.


#1 With a Bullet? Huffmania
My Rock Star Name? Maggie Cherry

One more note -- If you've got strong feelings about this election and you haven't voted yet, get your behind to the polls tomorrow, no matter who your candidate is. And no whinging when the results come in, either -- especially if you didn't vote.
