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

Thoughtfetti

Aroma Borealis Chocolate Chai lip balm is awesome. Thank you, Rachel...it only took me what, a year to try it?

Why do I always stay up the latest on nights I know I have to be up early the next day?

How is it that I only have one regular sewing needle in Casa de Crazy? Beading needles, tapestry needles, embroidery needles, got plenty. Plain old sewing needles (of the sort I use to quilt or sew the binding on a quilt, mend clothing, put patches on shirts, and reattach buttons)? One. Guess which kind I use the most. Yeah.

I don't suffer from insanity - I enjoy every minute of it.

I complain about Xmas music playing in November - but I have a few albums I listen to year round. The Trans Siberian Orchestra transcends season. Also, I don't make anyone else listen to them - except in December, when I change the ringtones on my phone to clips of their music.

Yesterday's blog title was a quote from a movie. The Movie is The Court Jester, and the actor was Danny Kaye. The scene was with Basil Rathbone.

I may be the last person on the planet who remembers him and loves his films. Holy wow, what a talent he had! It didn't hurt that he was a cutie, too. Oddly, I don't have a single one of his movies. I hope to remedy that one day.

Yesterday, Hermit Jim's blog post reminded me that I have no cookie cutters. Not one. How does someone who loves baking as much as I do have no cookie cutters?

I need to fish out the decorations for the exterior of Casa de Crazy. I put white and blue lights on the arbor over the mailbox, up the banister and around the porch railings, and around the front door. There's a wreath around here somewhere. Actually, there are a couple. I'll hang whichever one I find first on the inside of the front door. The outside is reserved for odds and ends of greenery that I'll make into something faintly decorative and hang there. I'm thinking about buying a snowflake shaped light to hang on the arbor. It'll probably be next week, though, before I bother.

Want to make the gods laugh? Make plans.

I am finally rid of the horrible chairs. They're a blog entry in themselves. For now, suffice it to say that T borrowed Mum's truck, brought his mother's caretaker up, and hauled them away. They will take up residence at T's, in front of his TV. The Evil Genius was sad about them leaving, but as soon as they were gone he was thrilled with the suddenly doubled floor space in the living room. I assuaged his sorrow by reminding him he'll see them when he's at Daddy's.

I cut my finger tip on steel wool. How lame is that?

What's your thoughtfetti today?

It's raining....again...not the best day to make peppermint meringues, but I'll endeavour anyway. They are in demand this time of year.
I'm going to try to get two more sections done of the shawl I'm knitting.
Must make more earrings.
