Month: June 2005

Scorpio for this week:

Introducing Adrienne Rich at a poetry reading in San Francisco in 2004, Frances Phillips turned to her and said, “Thank you for your lovely, irreverent, unsettled, curious mind.” It was a fitting tribute to a poet who for 50 years has stirred up good trouble with her rowdy yet disciplined work. By the end of this week, Scorpio, I would like to feel justified in saying the same thing to you: “Thank you for your lovely, irreverent, unsettled, curious mind.” Now get out there and pull off the most healing mischief you can imagine.

Methinks there is danger in telling me to go start mischief. But at least I’ll have fun. 🙂

For some reason, people seem to think I’m a liberal. When I have more time, I’ll actually list my politics. I guess in this day of extremes, some people have forgotten what a moderate is, and this is about the only thing I’m moderate about.

My neice is great, except when she’s tired. And hoisting a 30lbs 3 year-old on my shoulders has made my injured one hurt to raise it at 90 deg. now. 😛 I’m not sure who annoys me more, a 3 year-old that I can bargain with, or my mum, who goes pissy when said 3 year-old decides she wants her cake to eat as well. But, today’s activities included playing chase through the sprinkler, which was fun….playing pranks on Uncle Scotsman, and watching Miyazaki movies. Oh yeah, and going shopping. Anyone know where to get beach vollyball swimsuits for women? No sports store that I’ve gone into has any, and I’m sorry, but bright pink is not my colour, least not in something I wish to look half-decent in. So, that is my life in a peanut shell.

One of these days, I’ll get out of my head. But it can’t be till Monday, because I have to deal with the parts of my family that are more unstable than I am, in a not-so-pleasant a manner.

I survived. We missed our flight (Zoomie, see what you cause? Just teasin), but the guy at the counter was kind enough to get us out 2 hours later with a cheap ticket change fee.

I’m not sure what is going on, well, I do know, but I’m not going to discuss it here, but I ended up massively pissy at the airport. So I cranked me up some Crimson and Clover and mellowed out. Finished reading Memoirs of a Geisha on the plane, and promptly settled into the watery eyes but managed to not collapse on the plane.

I hate emotions, I really do. I was never able to deal with them as a child, and I definitely can’t deal with them now that I’ve made the committment to feeling and experiencing them. But, it has got me contemplating actually going and getting meds prescribed for my depression. Never liked the drugs, but I’m really getting sick of the roller coaster that I’m on, as the crests and valleys are getting too frequent for my liking.

With that said, I very much enjoy the company of my neice. As much as I didn’t want to come out here this weekend, it might be what I need.

This afternoon, I am off to visit the ‘rentals and my neices. Should be fun, but I’m already sympathizing with the 3 terrors, as they’re slowly realizing that all their window spots with nice breezes have been closed. Poor babies. I think I have most things taken care of, or at least some semblance. I’ll need to remove my tear gas from my keychain (bastard TSA). My hope is that they allow me both my clothes bag and my backpack on the plane. No way in fucking hell I’m allowing for them to check my clothes. All-in-all, I expect a decent weekend, too bad I won’t be able to hide from the rest of my family on Sunday. It’s my gram’s b-day, I think it’s her 80th, but for some reason I thought she was older than that. At anyrate, that is my boring life right now. 🙂 Enjoy.
