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

But I Just Don't Feel Like It

I should...

...clean the bathrooms...

...clean the kitchen...

...do some of the laundry mountain threatening to avalanche and block access to the bedroom...

...clean the Evil Genius's room...

...clean off the kitchen and dining room tables...

...be sewing together the six or seven pair of pants I cut last Wednesday...

...be baking banana bread with the rather...erm...antique bananas in the kitchen...

...be writing query letters...

...be cleaning out closets and storage spaces in preparation for a yard sale...

...be cleaning out the trailer and garage in preparation for a yard sale...

...be clearing out the room we just turned into a play room for Bird in preparation for a baby...

...sweep and mop the floors before they cat hair collects into a cereal studded carpet (whoops, too late)...

...be modeling patience and understanding to my son rather than grumpily telling him that I don't know where his fracking father is or why Daddy didn't come get him this morning when he said he would, or this afternoon, or yet this evening, or when he may actually show up...

...just go ahead and crawl into my bed for a minute and have a good cry (pregnant gals are moody bitches...or anyway, that's my excuse and I'm stickin' to it) - it'd likely make this headache go away, help ease some of the tension in my shoulders, and would certainly relieve some of the mental pressure I'm feeling today...

...just shut the hell up because really, who cares...

Um, I'm not trying to be rude, but can't Someone help with all this? Seems like you have a lot on your hands.

Not rude, Mizz Luci - he can and does help out around here...which is why cat boxes, compost, trash, gardening chores, and yardwork aren't also on my list! A few of the things, like going through Bird's room and toy room, I need to do because I know what stays and what can maybe (surreptitiously)go away. Sometimes it just seems like there aren't enough of us to get it all done. We need clones. Lots and lots of clones. Or house elves. I'm not picky...

Do what I do and burn the list.

Clones might cause too many problems, er, questions, go with the house elves.
