Tattooed Pigs in Plaid Pajamas

If I had a dollar for every intangible "pound" of negativity floating around today... I'd go into business. But then again, everybody's selling negativity. Blah... "GIVING" it away. I have no energy for it on a Monday. I've got enough of my own to contend with.

And thusly, I will focus on the good. The good that is my dear friend Jerome stopping by our place last night for dinner and the Amazing Race finale. That was pretty frickin' cool. (not the race mind you, that was sadly a little anti-climactic. Eric and Danielle... pshawww who wants to see the jack-ass and the whiny-cry baby win a million dollars?) Especially, considering how busy the man is. Thank you again Jerome for accepting our invitation. We had a great time and so did Tammy.

The good is also that it's my sister Darlene's birthday. I must call her this evening to tell her of the not-so-good... which is that I got her nothing. Not even a card. Which is totally not my style. Ah well. She's not likely to mind since she stopped commemorating my birthday years ago. She might even appreciate it as one less thing she needs to worry about in terms of "oh he got me something; I'll have to get him something next year" n' all that. I do feel bad that this is her first birthday since her divorce and therefore the first birthday alone. At any rate, today is her birthday and I can't change the fact that I've done nothing. Happy Birthday my sister. I love you.

I guess that's all I've got to say today, strangely enough. But I think it has a lot to do with the unsavoury, bitchy people I've had to deal with in recent hours. Tonight is a new night, and tomorrow is a new day.

Janet - "Velvet Rope"

We have a special need
To feel that we belong
Come with me inside
Inside my velvet rope

We all wanna feel special...

This special need
That's within us
Brings out the best
Yet worst in us

Follow the passion
That's within you
Living the truth
Will set you free

We have a special need
To feel that we belong
Come with me inside
Inside my velvet rope

Put others down
To fill us up
Oppressing me
Will oppress you

Outside leave judgement
Outside leave hate
One love's the answer
You'll find in you

We have a special need
To feel that we belong
Come with me inside
Inside my velvet rope

Argh. I was PISSSSSED that Eric and Danielle won. Although glad that Mirna and Charla came in third. I don't mind Charla so much, but Mirna needs to go away. Just away.

Yes, I was also pleased that Mirla and Shmirla (as we so unaffectionately call them) didn't take the prize. But that was a small consolation in the scheme of things. Sometimes the best people just don't win. sigh
But to their credit... watching a little person eat 2 feet of sausage and then vomit into a pail is one of television's finest moments in my book. As was seeing a little person dressed in custom shining armour, fall flat on her face with a loud Bugs Bunny worthy clatter. For that... I thank Sharla, and the producers of the Amazing Race. Classic.
