And Then....

So I have a new home now.....check it out.

I really like the option for wordpress....I like the catagories and the ease at which to add links. Still working on adding some of you guys plus the webrings.

I need to say one thing then moving on to my new digs, my new outlook and hopefully my new tude.

First, I do not feel too awfully bad about any mean things I have said, I know I should but I don't. I can't take them away anyway, they aready have life and either hurt someone or pissed them off or both.

I do find I don't like me much lately....never had a problem with being honest, still don't, but now I am just down right mean when it comes to pointing out someones, what I believe, to be their wrongs or their cruelty.

Now the way I figure it is, find the old me who was upfront but not so vile or keep on keeping on with this mean bitch I am toting around. Those that have been with me since I have started blogging will have noticed the change as of late. So whats the root of my slipping over to the darkside....being unhappy someplace but hating to leave because I might lose the couple of firendships I have developed there. Solution? Getting the hell out of Dodge. Does this mean no snarky comments? Hell no....but I need to work on my delievery of said snarkiness! LOL

Anyway hoping for a fresh new blog life and online life....dumping the garbage and moving on.....

This is in no way condemming those that are a bit more bitchy than even know who ya are...LOL, I likes ya the way ya are. This in no way apologizes for those few creeps over at the place I left, it's was becoming anti- everything....and although I havent brought this up before but it was a tad...ummmm how do I say this, "Americans Only"...Diversity rocks folks....the internet has countries? Whodda thunk it?

The whole downfall was dirty pool....

*Dusting myself off* lets get on with weird observations, odd news stories, social commentary, talk of family and critters and oh yeah, creation! And I miss Dawn , she's way above my bitchiness...maybe I can lull her back now LOL, a girl can dream.

Now where's Swapna? LOL I need a dry humour, editor friend....

Perhaps I am drunk and will awaken and wonder who the heck typed think?

Say, what language you speaking?

That is the question I am asking me. Lesser primates have better spelling skillz! I type, in my head it is a coherent flow of words mashed together into something profound, deep, silly, whathave you. Then I read it after I submit, no matter how many times I have proof read, and I have a gazillion typos. Really blows when I am passionate and trying to get a point across.....

I need my own personal editor....Swapna where are you when I need you?

Wrap Me Up In Your Love

Okay, so I freely admit I have a big hankering love from shawls and wraps and thingies of that sort....Check this out. I really, really, really, really gotta learn to knit properly. Sigh! I will cast on tonight and post a photo of one of my hang ups...and no, no stitches are falling off the end of my needle...but I get this string, growing ever so slowly, in between my needles. Back to that shawl, ain't it purty? I enjoy browsing that site...sigh, oh, to become a knitter.

I still have that free book list, some have been claimed but anyone is welcome to eyeball it and request some read-age.

Our furry kids are due for their summer time shaving , if anyone would like some schnauzer hair to spin let me know and I will send it. We have black, salt and pepper, white, and blacks and silver schnauzers. Hair will be clean and mat free...And we will *try* and keep it seperate colourwise. The hair is about 1-1.5 inches long, very soft with a slight wave to it. Let me know! Similar topic: I saw some raccoon fur spun yarn the other day, fasinating!

Check out this blog...Been reading it for a while, not sure I've ever shared the link.

I feel the need to make a rasta hat....damn, you stole for the swap! Me and commitment, like oil and watah...

Forward Fest 2006

Today was a good day, no, a GREAT day!!!

The Offspring had asked to go to a fest being held in historic downtown Bryan. Love the buildings there!!! We went and although it was small-ish it was fantabulous!

Odd as it seems I have never, since moving to this area 6 years ago, got to mingle with "artsy" types...infact I had no idea there were so many! Forgive me if I giggle like a child....when you live where football reigns as THE past time and arts are looked down on as "summin them longhairs'd do" , it was nice to be around kindred spirits.

It cost nothing to get in and there were tons of activities for small humans. Plus I was shocked, yes, SHOCKED, to see several booths to causes we find important. Animal welfare, womens rights, well too many to list, but think "hippie-ish" type things..LOL

At the League of Femininist Studests...I think that was the name. Anyway, we found the coolest buttons..I will post photo tomorrow. Also they were taking instant photos of folks and telling them, after taping the picture on a paper, to write three things that make you beautiful. Very interesting! The girls put things like, "I am kind" and "I am thoughtful".

We got to watch some drumming....again wonderful.

There were local artist set up, I bought some gifties for some of you peeps! Shhhh don't tell... Oh and some fair trade organic hazelnut creme coffee, for me, YUM!

And the bestest thing to happen was as we were strolling a woman kept eyeballing me, and I thought maybe I had a booger hanging out or something, she approached me and asked if I was an artist...I said yes, of course a tad sheepishly, and she said great, come join us on the art council. She said my memebership included my business link on a website, plus GRANTS!...She said the council gets grants from the league that is rebuilding the historic downtown area and so they pass those along to local artist. And get this if I were to suggest a "fest" type idea...let's say fibre arts fest (weavers, spinners, crocheters, knitters, dyers, etc) ....then I could get a $1000.00 grant for myself! At first I thought she must be hitting up everyone, but she wasn''d she know I was artsy? Oh and the memebership is a very small $25! How could I NOT sign up!?

So here's the deal...I don't post all my creations for two reasons, 1) I figure who wants to see them? and 2) I haven't found the confidence. I do get paid for some stuff I do but somehow it's different someone knowing about it and wanting it and then pushing it off on others, even to see....BUT I decided from now on I am showing whatever it might be (painting, writing, sewing, etc), who cares if others like it, hell I might not even like it...

Life is grand, now to learn to allow it to be more often.
