Not sufficiently desired. [Tuesday, Oct. 7th, 2008|11:22 am]
The richest girl in town.
- I'm not feeling too hot these days. I don't know that I'm actually sick (though the coughing/wheezing from three weeks ago hasn't gone completely away), but this weekend seemed like allergies. Really Bad Allergies. Eyes swollen shut upon waking, sneezing constantly, itchy throat. I hope that's just allergies. Anyway, I go back to the doctor today.

- The Extra Dog has been rehomed permanently. My landlord's friend kept him when I went to Carmel and then got so attached she kept keeping him. However, a construction worker at the house next door saw Ed and flirted with him and finally took him. So, Ed's name is now Scamp, and he lives with the construction worker, his wife, two kids, and poodle in a house with a yard. Congratulations on your new life, Ed. Er, Scamp.

- My last horoscope irritated me: "The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired." I usually grudgingly agree with most of what Mr. Brezsney has to say, but this one boiled down to "If you don't have what you want, it's because you don't want it badly enough," which just makes me think of the Sarah Palin/Hillary Clinton skit on Saturday Night Live. I reserve the right to rip a podium to shreds if this week's horoscope isn't any better than that.

- My grandmother isn't doing very well.

When you get better, will you get to spend more time with her? Is she nearby?
I like my not pretty, no makeup days. I wander outside with sunglasses and headphones on and carry on just like if I were wearing makeup.

Cool on the dog thing, yay for happy endings.

"If you don't have what you want, it's because you don't want it badly enough"

UGH. Libertarianism, Scientology and the Secret all rolled into one. Magical thinking and blaming the victim! Whee!

I hate that crap.

Isn't this the same BS from "The Secret"?

I do admit that being "open" and actively pursuing opportunity can lead to very good things, but so much is just luck, or timing, or other unknowns that I don't see how any rational mind would fall for this stuff. But then again, I wonder why anyone still goes to church or uses holistic medicines.

Anyway, I hope fightingwords and her gramma feel better very soon. Hell - I hope EVERYONE feels better very soon. All my friends (both real and virtual) seem to be falling apart lately. I think there is something in the water.

I know that you've been focused a lot on what you want less of (cough, stress, dog, drama, etc).

And no matter how lofty sounding it all is this is a weekly fortune cookie. What would you like to wish into being this week?

There's a lot of weird allergy shit flying around these days. It must be all that Republican dandruff from all the ducking and covering that's going on right now.

Hope you feel better soon and that your grandma does too.

Sugar, I'm sorry to hear you're not feeling well and that your grandmother isn't doing well. You are both in my thoughts. Yay for the extra dog placement, though. That was truly a good work.
