A little bit of everything...

I don't even know how to type the noise that I make when it's this hot - sort of a "hehueueuerrrrrrrrrrrghhhhhhhhhchhhchchc". A co-worker just turned the lights off - it's very soothing.

Or would be if it wasn't FIFTY MILLION FREAKING DEGREES IN HERE. CELCIUS, EVEN.

Mentally, I'm all over the place today - did you know that Dennis Kuchinich has proposed an impeachment resolution for Bush? No major American news outlet is reporting it - I got this link off Reuters. The bloggers are going crazy. Personally, I think buggering the whole country is slightly more reprehensible than getting a blow-job, but I know not all of my readers agree with me, so we'll leave it at that. However, the lack of news reporting is outrageous, considering how much negative press Hillary Clinton's cleavage received, or Barack Obama's choice to wear a flag pin or not. Priorities and objectivity are two things rather lacking in current news reporting.

I'm making good headway on my jacket - I'll post pictures when it's done. The braid flattens slightly as it is sewn down, and looks really pretty. I still have to decide whether I want to add another line around the neck, but I need to do the sleeves first to see whether I've braided enough. I made about 27 yards of braid.

We have a vulture baby! There were two eggs, but one seems to have been eaten by something - there is no second eggshell, and vultures don't eat their shells, so I'm guessing a snake came by before they hatched. But we have one adorable, stinky, hissing chick, and a mother vulture who is brave enough to stay in the barn (though out of sight) when I open the door a little bit to take pictures. Hopefully I'll be able to get more pictures this weekend.

sarahbellem was talking about Goth, and a book that Voltaire (of the band, not the French satirist) wrote about Goth stuff. I'm in agreement with her that it seems to be partially cribbed from (not plagarized, exactly, but certainly heavily informed by) trystbat 's Gothic Martha Stewart page. It also seems to draw a certain amount of its humour from the immortal Sexbat, who wrote the fun Take a Bite (more Take a Bite here) in the '90s. Other amusing alt.gothic files can be found here.

(Of course, I'm not Goth. I'm from London - we all wear black. And I'm a messy eater. It's more convenient that way. The fact that I actually own two pairs of theatrical fangs and a wardrobe of adorable vintage/clubbing clothes is pure coincidence.)

I'm not being too good with my correspondence, I realize, and I do apologize for that. I'm busy.

Melting.

MyBob just said he wishes you and YourBob lived next door. We'd have really amusing barbeques. ;)

Well, once the house is done, if you ever want a vacation in the exact center of Virginia, in a county with no tourist attractions, come on down. We can play with fireworks, shoot targets off the front porch, set fire to things, and no-one can stop us. It's awesome. :)

Sorry about the heat. We had it several days ago and if it helps, cooler weather is coming.

I envy you the vulture chick :). I thought a turkey vulture was going to nest in the hollow part of the big silver maple in back (that little bald red head is hard to miss) but the first storm in May took out that half of the tree, sigh.

And package arrived, just in case you didn't get my email.

I did! I'm just being slow with my e-mail, as I said. Sorry. :)

nope, not Goth at all....i just happen to be a member of a historical re creation society, look good in those colors and have a theater background...... why do you ask?

me? i just suddenly developed a purse making urge. i mean, i dont actually USE more than one large black hole type purse at a time, but suddenly i want coordinating purses and funky purses and stuff..... so i may end up making some braid myself to decorate them with.
any suggestions?

Baby vulture! Yay!

isn't it interesting, the total and utter lack of media coverage of Dennis Kucinich's Articles of Impeachment. Crickets...

Kirsten, you should see the purse I just made. It's got Henry VIII machine embroidered on the front. It's very cool. (I have designs for each of the six wives, too.) I seem to be on a purse binge..

alt.goth.faq is by far the best resource for the if-you-need-to-be-told-how-to-do-it instructions that I've ever run across. Plus, it's free! And it's, what, 15 years old? I mean, do you REALLY need to spend $10 on a little book from Hot Topic that barely gives you any actual information while oh so cleverly mocking your desperate consumerism when you can just go to the source for free?

So true. And the section on dancing? They've been doing that comedy routine on alt.gothic for fifteen years or more. "ooh! It's dusty! Better sweep away the cobwebs!" "Ooh! I dropped my contact! No-one move! Aaaaaaah, reach down and get it..."

It's been one of my party routines for *years* - guaranteed to raise a giggle.

They have introduced articles of impeachment against W many times now. If it actually gets an up or down vote, I'd be surprised.

I don't see anything impeachable. What are you referring to the going to Congress and getting a vote or going to the UN and getting a vote? :/

Like I said, I'm not getting into this debate.
