Scorpio for this week:
In 2007, you’ll need to find the power to do the half-right thing when it’s impossible to do the totally right thing. To help you do that, remember this advice from Abraham Lincoln: “The true rule, in determining to embrace or reject anything, is not whether it have any evil in it; but whether it have more of evil than of good. There are few things wholly evil, or wholly good. Almost every thing is an inseparable compound of the two; so that our best judgment of the preponderance between them is continually demanded.”
Boy’s behind again, least it was a cool card. But at any rate, it’s a good rule. You also have to weigh the possible consequences and which would be the better outcome. Or at least, the outcome, which you’re capable of dealing with the consequences.
I have yet to utilise all the gift cards my mum sent me, except my REI one. I have suitable daily clothes for the Scandinavian Invasion, that will wash quickly, along with a new sleeping bag for camping in Norway. I might go blow my Borders gift card tonight, went skimming through their site, but didn’t feel like wasting money on shipping costs, so I’ll just have them order it at the store. Last things to snag are more socks to replace all the ones I’m throwing out. I guess after 10 years, even target socks die. The last couple of days have been wunderbar roommate time. It was nice to spend some time with my Scotsman, and I mean quality time. We are slowly planning this next weekend. And with that, my favourite conversation bit of the weekend….
Montieth: “I got you some new rubber for Christmas.”
Me: “You got me new tires for my bike?!?!?”
Montieth with a stunned look on his face: “I didn’t think you would have guessed that.” Me: “Well, we’re not together anymore, so why would you buy me clothes?”
Montieth: “Good point.”
So now, I can start working on my bike and get it ready for trail riding. 🙂
Scorpio for this week:
Happy Holy Daze, Scorpio! I’ve been meditating on the perfect holiday gift for you. What symbolic offering might inspire you to be in closest alignment with the cosmic currents in 2007? I’ve decided on Elvis Presley’s favorite midnight snack: a peanut butter and banana sandwich deep-fried in butter. Why? Because like the King, you should aggressively pursue the unique experiences that will reliably give you comfort and sustenance. Like the King, you should feel no guilt about doing unusual things that you know in your heart will help you perform at your best.
I like this one. I really like this one!
I finally went to yoga tonight. I have found my new home. I spent the most of class with my eyes closed, and Don was there with me, guiding me through the poses. My instructor’s class set-up and voice are just like his, he even has the same walk. I even made a discovery about myself. My hip issues are not the internal struggle between the masculine and feminine, it’s an internal issue in forgiving my relationship with my father, and the men in my life. My dad and I didn’t have a good relationship up till recently, in fact, it was outright violent at some points. Of course, it didn’t help that the gender roles in my household were totally messed up. My dad was the cold nurturer and my mum was the nurturing bread-winner. But it was a nice revelation. Now to resolve it.
Scorpio for this week:
Scorpio actor Leonardo DiCaprio is not a big fan of locking lips. “When you think about it, kissing is pretty disgusting,” he told Britain’s Eva magazine. “The human mouth is one of the dirtiest things on this planet. There’s so much bacteria, slime, and trapped food.” I hope that you will not only ignore DiCaprio’s opinion in the coming months, but that you will launch a campaign to increase your commitment to kissing and all related pursuits. In my opinion, the potentials inherent in 2007 should inspire you to raise your mastery of the oral arts to a very high level. And it starts now.
Ummmmmmmm…….I think the art I’ll pursue is the verbal art. It’s dirty, and emits from the mouth. 😀 And that is all I will say on that. Outside the DiCaprio, for all I’d love to do to him, had better have been sarcastic. Or I shall have to mark him off my “to-do” list.
I hate financial angst. It’s one reason why I’ve never been about killing myself or compromising myself to earn money. But at the same time, I also don’t like living paycheck to paycheck. This year started off well, but my fomer boss fucked things up so nicely, that business down-turned and hasn’t recovered. And I had to suck up my ego and ask my mum to save me. Fingers crossed that I play my cards right and pay off my training loan, which will be one less thing a month I have to pay for, with a bit left over to pay down my car loan. And this all wouldn’t be an issue had my bank not paid out the $400 and $200 checks that I cancelled. Haven’t recovered from that, at all. Was well on my way till my bank put a wall in front of me.
Least business is picking up again. I will be happy when the new year starts, and I can finish up all the stuff I need for my office. Been window shopping to replace everything that is currently there, with my own stuff, so I can dump it on my former boss’ desk. One thing at a time. Just need to get over this slump. Doesn’t help that my sinus’ are going haywire.
Yes, I need to go hiking. And on that note, something positive – my mum just let me know I have an REI gift card coming. Which means hiking shoes and at least one new pair of pants.
Also, I found a new geek bag I want, anyone up for going with me to tell me what colour it is? I think it’s purple, but it’s one of those shades that could just as easily be blue.
