One of my favorite lyrisicts ...clearing my head..

Sometimes I need to clear my head from all the clutter and noise..I put the CD in and hit play and for those few minutes, everything is ok, and there is NO FEAR..

Into The Mystic...Van Morrison

We were born before the wind
Also younger than the sun
Ere the bonnie boat was won as we sailed into the mystic
Hark, now hear the sailors cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic

And when that fog horn blows I will be coming home
And when that fog horn blows I want to hear it
I dont have to fear it
I want to rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
Then magnificently we will float into the mystic
And when that fog horn blows you know I will be coming home
And when thst fog horn whistle blows I got to hear it
I dont have to fear it
I want to rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
And together we will float into the mystic
Come on girl...

Take the money and run?

I pray that "our government" makes the correct choice and takes care of the American people. Do you want to stand in bread lines? Have to go pull what little money you have in banks out? Than have to purchase a firearm for your home to protect what small assets you have? One gentleman stated on the am. news that this is going to be just like the movies. The sequel is going to be worse than the original. The Depression. People might think they are depressed and need Prozac now, wait till they are flat broke and hungry.*The Prozac than becomes moot as they will not be able to pay for it*.. Some people can't live without some degree of monetary security. Kenny and I will probably fare ok, because we are used to stretching and scraping. There are certain people I know that will not be able to deal with a reduced financial quality of living. Hang the noose and kick the chair type folks. Shit, we have been fighters the whole damn time, and aren't quitters. Me and mine baby are going down with the damn ship. Fight til the end. I hope those corporate CEO fucks are held accountable for the men I saw walking out of their buildings with all their belongings in cardboard boxes. Disgusting, how much fucking money does one human being need. When do you step back and say " I have been very blessed, my family is prospering, yes I am a lucky one".. Isn't greed one of the 7 deadly sins? My family? We are thankful that there is some ground beef and chicken, milk, cold beverages and coffee and whatnot. I am the one who when you don't have food, I send over a bowl of mac and cheese and some hotdogs, not because we have it like that, but we don't mind eating one less of anything if it means that someone else will eat something. Times they are a changin'..not for the better in my little opinion. Please stay well and safe...

Mona Lisa's and Mad Hatter's

My favorite story growing up had to be Alice in Wonderland. I believed there really was this magical looking glass. Rabbit Holes..etc. Guess what? I don't think I was that far off in my distorted thinking. When I watch CNN I see a group of Mad Hatter's. Babbling at some charitable tea-party. Dick Cheney is a viable Cheshire Cat. He taught Bush the ‘rules’ of Wonderland. He gave him insight in how things work down there in DC. Smiling and hiding. Than the Queen of Hearts I suppose, would be Ms. Rice.."OFF WITH HER HEAD". For my own mental happiness I am choosing to keep my cherished memories of my favorite book the way it was intended. *Disclaimer- I am now officially a grown-up and no longer follow white rabbits down holes...Peace

Comedic, political relief

The one upside of all the politicians speaking out about our economic crisis is that it is giving all the late night talk-show folks excellent material. I scouted the web and found some rather tasty morsels..and here we go.

When it comes to the economy, President Bush is no help at all. Like when reporters asked him today, what he thought about AIG, he said he got Showtime and HBO, but he really didn't get the whole package." –Jay Leno

The stock market crashed this week, but market analysts are not calling it a crash. They're calling it a 'correction.' Oh, shut up! A correction. You never hear that at NASCAR. 'Oh, we had a fiery correction on turn three. Four men are dead.'" --Jay Leno

"The Dow went up 410 points today on Wall Street. You may already know, the government has bailed two huge financial companies out, and today, they strongly hinted that they would bail the rest of them out, at taxpayers' expense. It's all part of a new approach our leaders in the White House and Congress are taking to the economy. It's called socialism." –Jimmy Kimmel

"The political campaign continues, of course, for the presidency. This Sunday, the entire hour of '60 Minutes' will be devoted to Barack Obama and John McCain. Yeah. Apparently, Barack Obama will be interviewed. John McCain will fill in for Andy Rooney." –Conan O'Brien

I could copy and paste for another hour or so. I am of the mindset that I would rather laugh than cry.

Seen True Blood yet?

Sunday nights for me have always consisted of good HBO. For the last 3 Sunday's I have been watching True Blood, right before Entourage. I am hooked. It is about a southern bible belt town that co-exists with vampires. Crazy premise, but it works. The writing is delightful. A sign in front of the local church that says "God hates fangs". Love it. To me it really shows prejudice, this time not based on the color of your skin, but on whether you are mortal or dead. Instead of saying "I hate those fucking (pick your ethnic group)it's " I hate those fucking vampires"...yes, it's tv., but it sure beats watching Marriot's blow up, and political mudslinging. And now I must go cause Entourage is on and I love Ari Gold and Drama. My two weekly guilty pleasures.

Love, Peace, and HairGrease..Susan
