Find Your Inner Bitch Goddess

You are Circe. This witch Goddess from the Hellenic days, daughter of Helios and Perse, was feared for her ability to turn men into sacrificial pigs. Her magic included commanding sorceries of creation and destruction by use of braiding and arranging her hair. She was one of many moon Goddesses, also attributed to the cauldron, dark magic, sensuality and general enchantment. Other myths have said her to be the daughter of Hecate herself.

a political ramble

We went grocery shopping today, as we do every two weeks. Just the usual items - bread, meat, soda, milk, etc, etc. We didn't buy any water - we didn't need to. We've got a filter on our tap that takes the bad smells and tastes out of the local water for us.

I went over to the fridge tonight and poured myself some orange juice. I was thirsty, and hadn't had any juice in a few days, and I knew it would hit the spot.

I have food. I have water, and all sorts of things to drink. When I start to run low, I can get in my car, go to the store, and buy more food, right off the shelf - just like I did today.

I cannot believe how lucky I am, to be able to quench my thirst at my whim, to be able to wander into the kitchen and just eat whatever I may find there. To be able to put gas in my car and drive it to where I want to go. To have a place of my own, and electricity, and yes, especially, air conditioning.

I can't believe that everyone in my country can't have these things - and yet, all this week, I've heard dozens of reports of tens of thousands of people losing these simple things, with thousands of them losing their very lives. I can't understand how a country as rich and prosperous as mine could allow these that to happen. I don't know why this catastrophe is not ripping apart the heart and soul of my country.

All I know is - there's something terribly, fundamentally wrong here. And I wonder how much longer I'll be as lucky as I am tonight.

One More Thing...

(And I apologize for splooging on your friends lists this morning)

Does anyone know how to create those personalized icons I see here and there? There's a least one South Park one, and a couple of different head shots. It looks like they're being done from templates. Are there web sites out there where you can make your own?

Thankee kindly!

Just a quick meme...

You are Apple OS X. You are beautiful, stable, and a catgirl. It’s no wonder people love you. It's sometimes a little annoying that so many people stick with the obviously inferior Windows, but since you know you’re better, you don't let it bother you much.

Note: I didn't write the above copy - I'm just saying, y'know?

(Edited to add - I also didn't realize that there wasn't an obvious link to the meme when I posted it here. Click on the graphic to get your own version.)
