Quote of the day...er...week...umm...hey, look, a quote!!

Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.

It says "...freedom of...", not "...freedom from...".

"It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered, and if we're compassionate we'll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint." - Penn Jillette

I never got tagged this much in school...

Foolery tagged me for another meme, which made a nice distraction from my irritation. The object is to describe one's self in six words. It prompted a bit of introspection and something of a Haiku frame of mind, and I ended up doing more than the six Foolery did. Overachiever, me.

Me, in six words (eight times):

Filled with sorrow, filled with song.

Blue hair, blue clothes, blue notes.

Witch who doesn't curse, just blesses.

Anchored in past, looking to future.

Powerful words building visions with abandon.

Each living day is a victory.

Loves animals, loves plants, loves all.

Earth, Air, Fire Water, Spirit, Song.

Now, Foolery only tagged me - hmm, should I feel special in a good way, or the short bus way? - but I think I'll tag three. Again with the overachieving. I tag Kit and maybe, umm...heh...Luci, and of course, Michelle, because I actually know them all and none of them have enough to do. Heh.

Hey, don't be sad - if you want to take part, too, just consider yourself tagged!

*Edit - I forgot one that was inspired by Foolery's - I have a fifty acre ass.

Cheers!

OK, I think the best six words about me would be....

IT WILL ONLY TAKE ME FIVE.

I knew I tagged the right person! It was either you or Bob, up here, and Bob was gonna come through anyway. Nice job, as I knew it would be.

And I started to post a comment on your "Moment" post but I somehow surfed away (DUHH), so being inherently lazy I'll post it here: I know just how you feel about most of what was under your skin. I hope you feel better. Maybe you should print it out and post it in your kitchen for a few days?

It was fun. I am hoping the three I tagged do it, but two have kids (one boy and three boys) and two have jobs (and the third has three boys) so I won't be holding my breath.

As for the rant, well - partly, that was neurons misfiring, and partly it was an ongoing frustration - I am the only human female in a house full of males. They're all children, even though two of them are well past forty. One of these days I'll get one of them raised right. Guess which one?? :-)
