Scorpio for this week:

The entrance to my local post office is an odd set of double doors. One of the doors is of normal width, but the other is bizarrely narrow, like something out of Alice in Wonderland. The only way I can use it is to turn sideways and squeeze through it. I believe this is an apt symbol for the metaphorical door you will have to negotiate in the coming week, Scorpio. As you approach it, you may feel bothered by its illogical and inconvenient construction. You may even be inclined to take it personally, as if it were an affront to your dignity. Avoid those reactions. Just turn sideways and squeeze through as best as you can, suppressing the urge to bitch and complain. That will prepare you perfectly for the weird but good luck that awaits you on the other side.

Gee, how right. Though, ditching assumptions out of my head and not taking things personally is a massive goal for me. I try to temper it with a good dose of cynicism, but it doesn’t always work.

In other news, I’ve decided what I’m going to do with my hair. Fuschia, with black streaks. In attempting to be somewhat useful today, I went shopping. I’m starting to hate Vicki. I have $100 to spend, and nothing fit. Not to mention I was mauled by 6 sales people, one of them twice. Seriously, if anyone has the inkling to start making lingerie, to Vicki’s standard of sexiness, for small breasted women – I’ll convert. I guess I’ll have to hit her website, thankfully I can use the card there. I did find one bodice I liked, but I didn’t have the $98 to cover the rest, and they didn’t have a smaller one. I also found an Anthropologie in that mall, which is nice. Means I don’t have to drive over to the Nuovo Riche area and pay extra for location.

And, in two weeks, I’ll be able to afford registration for my conference in Philly. The BossMan has a new position for me, which will pay nicely, and I’ll be able to afford a couple other weekend trips. One of them will be up to meet up with the Evil Twin in Chicago, the other will be later in the year to somewhere cold. Where I’ll go in-between, ya got me. If anyone has any ideas, or just wants to head off somewhere with me, just let me know. This next year is my year of the Vagabond (with restrictions based on work availability). Depending on how well this job works out….moonbird, we’re going to Italy. Both poles of the country.

      1. Mmmmmm…..

        If you happen to stop by Siena, there was a nice little vintner on the Piazza del Campo. The sign above the entrance read “Vini Dolci”. Nice selection of local wines. As I recall I got a nice Brunello di Montalcino, one bottle for me and one for my parents’ then-upcoming anniversary. Friendly staff. πŸ™‚

        And if you get a chance, stop by San Gimignano. There’s a fort there on the top of a hill that gives an absolutely fabulous view of the tuscan vineyards.

    Not that I should be jealous, as I’ll be in the other end of the continent this summer. France-Italy-Greece is most likely my *next* tour, in 2007…

    1. Nice. πŸ™‚ I still have to hit Ireland, Scotland, England and Germany. Have to go back to Italy, first, though. I’d like to spend another week on the shores of Sardegna.

      2. Tell me about it; my family comes from a place called Machynlleth, and I still can’t say it quite right. It’s an incredibly beautiful land, though… too quiet for me to enjoy on a long term basis, but I need to go back for a couple of days.

      3. Yeah, half of my family is from Ireland, and a small town just north of London. The other half is out of Germany. My main travels are headed towards the Gallic/Gaulish lands. I just absolutely love Italy, though. And they have good coffee.
