A friend sent this to me and I liked it.

Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad guy when Bush's daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney did business with him and a bad guy when Bush needed a diversion because we can't find Bin Laden.

Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is communist, but trade with China and Vietnam is vital to a spirit of international harmony.

The United States should get out of the United Nations, and our highest national priority is enforcing U.N. resolutions against Iraq.

A woman can't be trusted with decisions about her own body, but multi-national corporations can make decisions affecting all mankind without regulation.

Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred of homosexuals and Hillary Clinton.

The best way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in speeches while slashing veterans' benefits and combat pay.

If condoms are kept out of schools, adolescents won't have sex.

A good way to fight terrorism is to belittle our long-time allies, then demand their cooperation and money.

Providing health care to all Iraqis is sound policy. Providing health care to all Americans is socialism.

HMOs and insurance companies have the best interests of the public at heart.

Global warming and tobacco's link to cancer are junk science, but creationism should be taught in schools.

A president lying about an extramarital affair is an impeachable offense.

A president lying to enlist support for a war in which thousands die is solid defense policy.

Government should limit itself to the powers named in the Constitution, which include banning gay marriages and censoring the Internet.

The public has a right to know about Hillary's cattle trades, but George Bush's driving record is none of our business.

Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you're a conservative radio host. Then it's an illness, and you need our prayers for your recovery.

You support states' rights, which means Attorney General John Ashcroft can tell states what local voter initiatives they have the to adopt.

What Bill Clinton did in the 1960s is of vital national interest, but what Bush did in the '80s is irrelevant.

it went very well

So well, in fact, I will be scheduling another interview with the CEO. Probably tomorrow. There is a very good chance I will get the salary I asked for. Keep your fingers (or whatever you like) crossed!

One down, two to go. Nothing says I have to work only one job. I promise I won't do anything that exhausts me. My ultimate goal is to have a job writing or doing other creative things (or both!). I have that firmly in sight, now. It feels really good. Attainable.

is the drought over?

I have a job interview at 1 today. I have a couple of others in the offing, and I found a great copy editing job online this morning.

I'll let you know how it all goes. Yes, I am excited. :)

now I know I was born under a lucky star

I found my camera. Outside. After a couple of good rainstorms.

It still works.

All bow down to the greatness that is Kodak :)

this time it wasn't my fault

I have had no internet connection for half the weekend and until this moment. After I get caught up I have some interesting tid bits to share. Meanwhile, with my lack of internet, the back room got lots of overdue attention. There are boxes for Goodwill, boxes of books to sell to the local Recycled Books, and bags and bags of trash. Soon there will actually be room to walk and eventually a sitting room for reading. Whee!

More soon!

Blame it on the moon

..or on the summer, but I have not been around in a while. I try to get to as many of your blogs in a day as I can, but I have been somewhat busy. Despite what people may think :)

First, I have the possiblity of 3 jobs. One I am waiting to hear on next week, and it involves writing. The second I have to decide on, as it is a part time manager/promoter/assistant for a talented musician/dancer/healer. The third I was called on today and am trying to reconnect with the hiring manager. It is more in my past line of work, even working for a company that does pretty much the same thing my last company did. I don't know exactly in what capacity I would be working for them, what my job description would be, but I think it will be a bit of everything all mixed up into one-and I like that.

I promise more information as any of these solidify. Meanwhile I want to leave you at least for now with this disturbing site. I kinda love it :)

I'll be svelte in no time!

I have a new diet plan. It's called the "walk away from your food and let the cat pull half of it on the floor" diet.

The alternate for those of you with small children is the "only eat what is left on baby's plate after dinner" diet. Lost those post-partum pounds fast!

Oooh, dearie me!

Several things to talk about, and no time (as Graham Norton likes to say).

No time to talk about Ahnuld and his girlie men comment. I am still working on what I think about this. I think Schwarzenegger was just stupid to make the comment, but I also think the Dems who are focusing on the comment rather than the issue at hand are using Arnold's distraction tactics against him. We'll see what happens. I bet this is a non-issue by the end of today even.


Finally, Eric Idle has a new song about the FCC that will cost him a pretty penny if it gets airtime :) Download The FCC Song and give it a listen! BTW, listen with headphones, it isn't terribly work safe. :D

More non-news later as it breaks, or I take a break. Now scoot!

no news is good news?

I have nothing to report. Perhaps I should make up some news, like some reporters do. Maybe I could get a job at The Enquirer, or better yet, The Onion, with my work.

When I think of something clever, you'll be the first to know.
