Howling out loud for feminism

This is awesome!

I hate insomnia. It screws up my whole schedule. I will finally catch up on sleep during the day, which means I’m up late again. (way late) When I finally get back on schedule for a week, a few days, it knocks on my door again. ARGGGGGG.

Where am I going with this? I saw Jessica Valenti on BookTV the other night. She is very open, and to the point. Some of you may think that she is a little harsh..(and that is definitely OK) I believe that she has some valid points. She has a book out,  Full Frontal Feminism. I want to read it. Some of what she was saying during the program had me laughing like mad. Then again, I could just be mad due to the insomnia, and many other reasons.

She has a site called FEMINISTING. Check it out if you don’t mind seeing some bad language, and many, many pointed comments.  I will say this. I like the honesty. I like that it is to the point. I like many of the arguments, some of it I’m not sure what to think. Be sure to watch the Wanda Sykes you tube bit. Gotta love her.  I am so with her on the SSM thing. To each their own ,that’s what I think. We have much bigger things for our government to deal with.  The war, education, economy, getting our homeless of of the streets….shall I go on?

HSK Swappers, she even had something for us….LOL. Well, sort of.  (actual Mattel toy)HP Flying Nimbus 2000 . I found it humorous, you may find this distasteful,  so consider yourself warned.

 I think that I should quit now, lol!  If I offended any of you, please accept my apologies. That was not the intent.

!!SLYTHERIN HOUSE NEWS!!

Congratulations to PAULA!!! She won the drawing for the $10 gift certificate to The Loopy Ewe! The drawing was really technical….My daughter drew the name out of an envelope. So sad that I didn’t have a sorting hat….that would have been cool! lol! Yes, I’m a dork….sometimes!

In The News

Mystery Illness Strikes After Meteorite Hits Peruvian Village

This was the first thing I saw online today. Is this not interesting or what? I hope they keep us updated on the developments. I would love to know what they find!!

The Enduring Mysteries of the Moon

I am a lover of the moon. It has always been a link to my family back home. (England) When the moon is high, I know they are (not getting technical on the time here) basically living life, doing their day to day things. When I look at the moon, I always feel closer to them. (I know, it probably sounds corny!)

I have other reasons for my love of the moon. It has always been a constant. I remember gazing at the moon when I was very little, and I remember how the moon looked on specific moments from my past. She was always there. I have always thought of the moon as female. Why? I don’t know. Maybe she is, after all she is the representation of the Goddess. I can assure you though, I did not know this when I was little. Maybe it is just like boats. They are always female. Hmmm.

Hubby News

OK, moving on before I become really nostalgic and get all teary and emotional….We don’t want that now do we. You might know already that hubby works out of town a lot. He is down south as we speak. Yesterday, he went to the DR. due to his finger being highly infected. They gave him a shot for the pain and a shot of antibiotics, froze the finger, an cleaned it. He was out of it most of yesterday. He’s still in pain, and goes back at 11am to see the Dr. I hate this. My DH is in pain, not well, and out of town. He should be home where I can take care of him. At least be able to see for myself that he’s alright. He is one of those that doesn’t go to the DR unless absolutely necessary. So, yes, I am worried and I’m sad. I usually get aggravated with him when he has a cold because, well….YOU KNOW WHY!(lol) Don’t make me say it! This is just different. This is more than a cold. I know, some of you are like….he’ll be fine, get over it. I guess I’m just silly that way. I miss him.

House News:

NONE. 😦

SWAPS

I said that I will post pics, and I will. Just not in this post, lol! I have to upload the pics and I honestly cannot be bothered at the moment. Sorry! I do have a few to post though.

Let’s Get Hooked

The first meet up is tonight at 7. Woo hoo. I still can’t believe that I started this! Funny thing, I did want to cancel it, lol! Nerves I guess. I really am a shy person. I guess I will just look at it as in a job perspective. I think it will be fun! If you are in the DFW area (more so FW) come see us! It will be fun to get to know other’s with the same hobby! YARN ADDICTION!! Speaking of, I will have to sort some out to swap. It’s mostly novelty though. I learned a lesson on sales. So, here’s a friendly tip:

Just because a $5 skein is on sale for $1, (rough estimates, lol) You don’t need to buy 40! You might get by with just 20!

Alright, I can’t think of anything more to note. Besides, this. Liz, I’m honored!! I will be doing the same with you. 🙂 I just popped over and saw my name…made me giggle….lol!

OK, YES, I think I’m sort of OUT there today…I think I need a nap! Yeah, definitely do, my dogs even think so, and they are very smart! Bye for now!
